While running won’t make you lose weight, but it’s definitely a good exercise. You see, running is one of the best things we can do. I have started running from today 18th July, 2016. And will hopefully keep it up throughout the rest of the day. There is no rest day or holiday in this running streak. I gotta wake up and run. Plain and simple. Of course, hard to follow for someone who’s spent a good deal of his days waking up significantly late (at 9 am) than the time to go for run (5:30). Huge shift, right?

I often tell myself that this is the lamest blog, ever. For that reason and to comply with my words, I blog here every day. More often that not, it’s personal rant against some brand, an opinion or a poorly researched blog post about some tool. This is yet another blog post. Yet another one written within less than 30 minutes. It’s not long and boring read, but it’s not valuable either. Because to be frank, I am not writing to be valuable. I am writing for myself. This blog serves as a personal journal, one with filters installed.

Lately I am noticing generalist vs specialist competition. It’s the competition of niche and of market share. It is an unending battle of customers’ base and users’ base. The thing is a particular restaurant who has a 3-page based menu has much less customers than one with 1-3 menu items. The former of two types of businesses is generalist, because they are more like a general menu. They are not specialist at what they do. They are a jack of all trades, but master of none. Therefore they offer everything they can think of on their menu. Anything that can … Read More
Most of you know that I hate Facebook and am not its user. Reason? Well, instead of one I will give you three primary reasons that you need to deactivate your account. I have been a Facebook in and off for last 5 years. 2016 is the year, I quit it totally and it’s been paying off. Of course, it’s the garbage-filled social network or maybe it’s my feed or people I follow who suck. Regardless of that, it’s not at all rare to find God-awful shit on the network, which is totally unbearable.

People who know me(maybe they are not reading this though :P), know that FB is on my blacklist. I hate it, have my account deactivated since start of 26th December 2015. Twitter is cool, it at least does not have “filter bubbles“, which FB employs predominantly to keep users online. Filter bubble in a nutshell is the phenomena of making a space/site so personalized that you only see what you “should” be concerned about. In such a bubble, you are only lead to interact and befriend people who “you may know”. FB knows that by cross-checking … Read More

Hey guys (I doubt there’s anyone though),
This domain name thisismairaj.com had, although, been showing an “Under Maintenance” notice but that ought no longer be the case. Why? Well, that’s purely because this site is going back or because, I intend to do just that. Okay, here’s the deal: Previously despite the fact that I had this domain name thisismairaj.com registered, I blogged for a while at thisismairaj.wordpress.com (yeah, that costs none). I was paying yearly domain fee and hosting expenditures, but as lame as it is I was not putting the site to any use.
I hope that changes … Read More
