Brief Intro of Aakshey Talwar (By Aakshey)

I’m Aakshey Talwar; an entrepreneur who is also the biggest foodie, the coolest tech geek, a Bollywood-music lover and a hopeless romantic, all rolled into one!

To tell you about my last few years in merely a few words:

I’m a product of DPS RKP. I dropped out of engineering because I really hated it. Only to graduate from the College of Business Studies (DU) as a BBS in Finance.

Now I run GaiaQ.com, a content marketing platform based out of New Delhi.

GaiaQ was originally founded as Weaving Thoughts. In the quest for winning my true love. That however never happened. What did happen was that today, GaiaQ, although a tiny startup, has worked with big names like Nearbuy, Portea, Sulekha, Hyatt, MobiKwik, Economic Times, UpGrad, etc.

Let us connect on 2nd April 2017!

The Law of Karma (By Aakshey)

Every action/reaction causes a displacement in the cosmos.

The motion of the happening of a displacement initiates a series of displacements that total equal in magnitude and opposite in character.

So every action has its own series of reactions to match the displacement of that action with the displacement in an opposite manner.

Some of these reactions may be internal to the object, some may be external.

When there are other forces like friction that are in play, a part of the motion maybe be trapped as passive energy in the object or its associated environment.

In a vacuum,

Actions and reactions come in units of 4 each

Every action will have an internal reaction and an external one. And the external reaction (aka action) will have an associated internal action (aka reaction).

So for 2 objects in a vacuum, a single action is associated with 3 additional forms of energy/displacement.

The Destiny of your Life (By Aakshey)

The Destiny Of Your Life

Ever wondered why some people never lose?
Ever wondered why some people don’t think twice,
Yet always get it right?

He studies all night
Checks everything twice
Yet loses to the one
Who slept like a baby alright!

Ever wondered why this happens?
Is there a greater task you must fight?
To achieve your dreams you seek,
Because of how you think your life through…

There is a Law at work,
One that never fails those on its side
To know that Law is Holy
To follow it truly is considered folly…

What you seek must come to you
By means you never knew to be true
What you want exists already
You’ll get it when the time is new

Attract all the negativity you want
It will all come to you
Live life fearless and brave
And you’ll never make it to the grave

He who made YOU knows it all
He will answer your doubts one day
I promise this is true
You’re His saviour
You’re His son
He made you so he too could learn

Ask for what you want today
What you seek he forever knew
Believe in Him and yours it shall be
He’s just waiting for your turn

The most prepared shall seldom lose
Preparation is key
And when you’re prepared
He’ll set you free!

Ideas for MobiKwik 1 (By Aakshey)

MobiKwik

A digital wallet that works across the web, iOS and Android devices. Be it a desktop or mobile.

You can use MobiKwik 24×7 for cashless transactions without sharing your credit card details with other websites. NEFT is not 24 x 7 and slow. Credit cards aren’t safe as per Indian mindset.

You can use MobiKwik to make instant money transfers, ticket bookings (bus), recharges and bill payments (e.g. mobile, gas, electricity etc), and online shopping purchases.

Instant Money Transfers
From wallet to wallet. Or wallet to bank. Or from your card to wallet.

You can use MobiKwik to making online payments apart from the above:

For example:

Food
Zomato, Swiggy, FoodPanda etc

Travel
MakeMyTrip, IRCTC etc

Shopping
Big Bazaar, Nearbuy etc

Grocery
Grofers, etc

And across other sectors like Banking, Entertainment, Health etc.

You’re basically guaranteed instant payment transfers regardless and a log of all these payments. And a solid customer service in case of any lapse anywhere. With prompt resolution.

And the offers section will only grow.

While cash backs like Pakka Fayda are an icing on the cake. 🙂

Ideas for MobiKwik 2 (By Aakshey)

MobiKwik = Mobile + Quickly

Mobile = Literally mobile devices OR 24/7 with you as in mobility

Quickly = Promptly. Without delay.

So MobiKwik = 24/7 with you to pay/receive money quickly and hassle free. Cross platform and cross device.

MobiKwik aims to act as an invisible (and I really mean invisible when I say invisible) between the person making the payment and the one receiving money.

The receiver can be a shop, store, website, service, business or person. The same goes for a payer (although currently limited to end users and customers only).

When I say invisible, I infer that the person doesn’t mind having another layer between his credit/debit card and wallet, and instead prefers the wallet as it requires fewer steps than his credit card and unifies all his methods of payment.

With a wallet like MobiKwik, our aim should be to make it like a digital bank. Much like HDFC or ICICI. Whereby the person can make most/all types of incoming/outgoing transactions through a single app like MobiKwik. For example, ticket bookings for all purposes, eCommerce transactions across multiple websites, and cash exchange among friends and others.

Our aim should be to imply on the simplicity of the above. And the unity of the above. How MobiKwik can get the job done in fewer steps. Faster. And with greater security.

MobiKwik already has an offers portal. And that will only get bigger. So we should bank heavily on that as well.

Let us do it! 🙂

Ideas for Career Launcher (By Aakshey)

Title: 7 Reasons IIMs today carry more weight than most Ivy Leagues in India

Employers and investors have realised that cracking the CAT or JEE takes more merit and perseverance as compared to getting an admission in a Top 20 college abroad where partly even money and status are involved.

And that passion to outdo everybody else only comes from an average middle class hard working sapling.

There are people who are able to get into colleges like Harvard or Stanford despite failing the JEE and/or CAT. And with so many people with foreign degrees, Indian degrees are again increasing in importance.

Title: 3 Reasons why you should skip an MBA. And 4 reasons you’ll regret doing so!

Skip:
Engineers from good colleges are earning handsomely.
Startups are paying well, on merit, rather than merely looking at your degree.
Getting a top MBA isn’t possible for everyone.

Regret:
Long term growth and prospects.
Connections and networking.
Stability, marriage and social status.
Future funding or investment banking etc.

Title: Is MBA coaching really worth it? Here are 5 toppers who believe it is!

Improvement in chances of selection with proper preparation.

Short cuts and study techniques.

5 testimonials from CL.

Case studies of failed and successful candidates.

Etc

Title: Looking for funding? Here’s why you need to get an MBA to make it happen!

• Some statistics like
Out of 121 deals,
• A total of 63 founders have post graduate or higher degrees
• At least 40 CEOs have an MBA degree
• Only four of them have a PhD
• Investors also show an inclination towards foreign degrees.
• It also matters what college you got your MBA from.
• Network expands when you’re doing your MBA.
• Sufficient knowledge about developing business models.

Title: 4 reasons MBAs hate their life. And 5 reasons why they still get the best spouses!

Long working hours, extreme stress and competition, pressure to startup, delayed gratification

• Reasons why they get the best spouse – usually they find someone in college itself, better financial status, stability, well connected. More attractive. More independent and confident.

Title: Flunked in JEE? Don’t despair. Prepare for CAT 2018…

You might have failed because you might not have studied all concepts thoroughly. The good thing is that the CAT is more logical and basics oriented than the JEE. So with the right coaching, you can be ready to crack the CAT in a few months.

Once you get into an IIM, nobody cares that you flunked your JEE.

Title: Here’s why you may be in the wrong MBA coaching program…

• Very few lectures by the promised faculties
• Extra charges for mock tests and also their quality and level of difficulty as compared to actual CAT papers
• Not enough competition
• Poor study material
• Bad infrastructure, irregularity of lectures, counselors and faculty not approachable
Introducing CL

Title: Planning to get an MBA? Stop! 6 things you need to know like yesterday…

• Highlight why getting an MBA is a good option.
• Things you should know before getting it- the exact path you want to choose after MBA, similar knowledge can be gained through work experience, invest in good books instead of an MBA degree

Letter to VC Circle (By Aakshey)

Hi Anupriya,

Forget about the previous emails.

I just want to point out a few things. 🙂

By the way, previous revisions will be sent in shortly. Don’t worry. 🙂

If you order 10 pieces, you need to pay for 10 pieces. However, as long as you stick to Content Strategi (INR 4/word) you can ask for revisions/redo/replacements (sometimes by one of our other writers provided the problem is significant and not in bulk) for any number of pieces where the quality isn’t met.

It need not always be within 30 days strictly as I previously said. 🙂 But try to ensure it isn’t delayed by months. 😀 You can ask for any number of revisions if the problem is genuine. Or even a replacement of that piece. Provided you get back to me on time.

I just have one request to make to you:

If I submit for example 8 pieces in January
And then another 10 pieces in February

Then when you start publishing pieces received in January, in Feb/March, I request you to first publish all received in January and then proceed to content received in Feb and so on. And I’m glad that this has happened till now under both Pallavi and you Anupriya. 🙂

It doesn’t matter when you publish or how many.

But just try to publish all of Jan’s before Feb and so on.

However, if that’s not possible, then at least let me know within early Feb itself about the Jan pieces that need to be revised or replaced.

And one more thing, when you give me a list of published, try to include the month they were delivered (not just published) in. That would help me a great deal.

Apart from this, I’m fine with the way things are proceeding. I have no problem at all. 🙂

Sorry for the previous misunderstanding and harshness. I apologise.

Looking forward to a long term business relationship with you. 🙂

Thanks so much and God Bless!

Aakshey

Letter to MobiKwik (By Aakshey)

Hi Tarun,

I’m sure you trust me enough to know that I won’t try to lie or cheat.

First things first, I do NOT want to sour our professional and personal relationships because of a paltry sum of money. So if you feel the invoice isn’t justified, don’t bother with it. I’d rather have your friendship.

That aside, here’s the breakup of the invoice based on what I recall from memory:

4 x 250w Blog Posts
Given by Biren. One at a time. In October. And I don’t think you rejected any. Whatever revisions were asked for were sent back promptly. And all was well then.

1 x 750w Blog Post
Given by either you or Biren. In November I think. Maybe October. Maybe December. Probably November.
Again, there was no rejection to this.

3 x 250w Blog Posts
You ordered these after we met in person. I actually delivered 7-8+ but across just 3 topics. And you had only ordered three, so hence you’ve been charged just for three.
Why?
Because whatever you order from us, has to be paid for. Regardless of whether you use it or not. Unless there is a problem in which case you can ask for revisions. Which you didn’t as you haven’t seen the content yet.
You yourself accepted you haven’t seen these three. And you need to understand I still need to pay my team because you made an order. That time you didn’t mention you were planning to call off the contract and may not be paying for this content even if it is good.

That’s all.

So I didn’t bill you for the dozens of samples that got wasted because you didn’t like them or samples that were offered from my side just so you could select good writers of your choice. No charge for any of that.

And the invoice is a mere INR 2,000. I have probably spent more than that fixing work you never bothered to even look at.

If you believe the invoice isn’t justified or I’m not being honest, feel free to scrap it. But trust me, I’m being totally honest and open.

My relationship with MobiKwik and with you Tarun is far more important to me than this invoice. I hope you feel the same way.

So if the invoice is a problem, you may or may not pay it. But I want to have a long term future with MobiKwik regardless. There may not be any work immediately. But I hope there is work months/years down the line. Right?

Let me know if you’d like to talk on phone. 🙂 Or regardless of what you decide.

Thanks so much, God Bless! All the very best!

Beyond Love (True Story Of A Dipsite) (Aakshey Talwar)

Originally published at:

Beyond Love (True Story Of A Dipsite)

Dear Friend,

You definitely don’t want to be bored with a sermon. Being a copywriter, I ought to know to not do that to you. So. I’ll keep this short for you.

You probably want to know who the hell am I? I’m Aakshey Talwar. And I was diagnosed with Asperger’s when I was in class 9. You saw SRK in My Name is Khan? For now, this introduction should suffice.

But. I have set out on a journey that none of my *normal* school and college mates dared to take. You’re probably wondering what the heck is this guy talking about.

I’ll get that to that in a bit.

I’ll be telling you 2 short stories today. Just 2 of them. No big deal.

These short stories form the basis of who I’m today. And I’m sure they will help you in some way or the other, in your own journey.

First, let us talk about love.

Back in DPS RKP, in class 11, I fell in love. And I was madly in love. Her name was Annie. And I found her beautiful.

I found life harsh because she used to hate me. You probably know how terrible and painful that feels. Time didn’t stop though.

School ended. And of course, there wasn’t much hope after that.

But. I hope you don’t love anybody that way. Because it is poison. But. Now we’re moving off topic.

The question is why did Annie hate me?

And the answer is simple. I was different. Weird in fact. Teenagers, and popular girls in particular don’t like that. One bit. You’d agree with that perhaps.

My classmates used to call me an Alien due to my stratospheric IQ but weird behaviour.

And most of all, I just didn’t have the courage to approach Annie directly. I never got the courage to talk to her confidently. Even though she was in the same school bus!

And as you probably know, girls hate lack of confidence. And I was as under confident as one could be.

Long story short, Annie was never in my life as my GF.

And it was the biggest setback ever. You’d probably not want anything remotely similar to happen to you. Pray it doesn’t happen to you. And I’ll pray for you too.

And the biggest hurdle that was there was overcoming that Asperger related behaviour. You understand that. Right?

Anyway, enough about the first story.

You probably want to hear the next one.

The final one.

My love for Annie made me start my own company. Weaving Thoughts. When I was not even 18 years old.

Yes, I did enrol in a full time college course. From Delhi University, no less. I attended Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies and majored in Finance. And I did graduate as well. Albeit. I just about passed. But that isn’t what we are talking about right now. Right?

Coming back to the point.

Back in 2008, age 18 years, I still loved Annie. A lot. And that will never change. It hasn’t changed in 2016 either. And starting Weaving Thoughts was the best way I could think of to impress her. And to earn enough to buy gifts for her. Of course the gifting part never materialised.

You’d have done the same thing. Right? Thought so!

And later on Weaving Thoughts was to become my dream. My passion. My love. My life. I didn’t need to take up a job when my friends were taking up jobs or going for higher education.

There were times of success and those of failure. And even now I’m still recuperating from a low. But at least I’m happier than ever and I can see a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel.

To top it all. I have been on anti-depressants ever since school ended. I have been suicidal for a significant part of this journey. And not everything is hunk dory even now. As you’d probably have guessed.

But.

There is a point I’m trying to make.

Had Annie not been in my life as an inspiration, I would have never started Weaving Thoughts.

Had I not started Weaving Thoughts, I would just be an unhappy and disgruntled employee in a corporate job with no existence of his own. I would never have been happy. And I wouldn’t know what to do about it either.

Had Annie accepted me, I don’t know whether I’d have taken out enough time to pursue Weaving Thoughts through college.

And this is just the tip of the ice berg.

There is a lot of stuff that never made sense till even a year ago. And there is much that doesn’t make sense even now.

But.

Once you believe that you reside in the Creator of the Universe. And that he resides in you. And. That you and the Lord are all but one. You’ll be better equipped to deal with the problems that come.

It may not always work out. But. Do you know anything that will?


And just to show a glimpse of how much I loved Annie:

Back in grade 12, when all of us were 17 year olds, Annie had kept a Karwa Chauth fast for her then boyfriend, who of course didn’t do the same for her! Frustrated at the thought of enjoying my meal while she was hungry and thirsty, I decided to keep one for her myself. That day, I didn’t drink a drop of water nor ate a bite of food till I broke my fast with her pic when the moon came out. Of course, she doesn’t know this even today. (I did drink a few drops of water early morning with my medicines, but that’s it!)

P.S. The name of my love has been changed to Annie to maintain her privacy. Which becomes even more important now that she’s happily married. Not to me of course! I’m single and ready to mingle.

P.P.S. Some 340 or so poems that I wrote for Annie, that I have self published on Amazon.com. Across two volumes.
