    Season 2 - Ep 3: Manjari answers 'Khaane Me Kya Hain' | Nani Dadi memories from childhood | Food unites all

    I know Manjari for more than a decade and we have witnessed each other's journey sometimes closely and sometimes from a distance as life allowed. And being a foodie I just couldn't help not having a podcast on Coffee Table Stories about good food and who better to interact than with a chef itself.

    Our conversation will take you down the memory lanes of childhood, will activate taste buds , we will revisit Nani Dadi era together and a conversation about food is always incomplete if you're not talking about your Mom and her cooking and ofcourse your tantrums !!

    Season 2 - Ep 2: The Undateables - Disability & Dating - In conversation with Anubha & Faisal

    Season 2 - Ep 2: The Undateables - Disability & Dating - In conversation with Anubha & Faisal

    All 3 of us have spent good enough years on earth and have experienced disability and the all its aspects from a first person perspective. And this conversation is not only about how society looks at it but also from the perspective of a person with disability, their mindset when it comes to dating and also the social condition they have been subjected too. Like all other needs emotional security & sexual desires are equally important for a person with disability. They hit the puberty and go through all of those hormonal turbulence as well.. Lol, then why we don't consider it important. Why emotional wellbeing is our last priority.. that's when we felt we need to get a discussion going and more from the India social perspective.

    Season 2 - Ep 1: Psychology of Money | Success & Failure | Luck & Risk

    Hi Everyone, I am glad to be back with the new season on Coffee Table Stories. We promise this season will have more hard hitting content, themes, stories & conversations. In the first episode I am narrating one of my most favorite story from the book I'm reading these days named 'Psychology of Money'. I recommend this book to all not just to improve your relationship with Money but most of the fundamentals from this book applies to life in general as well. 

    Also, my sincere request to all of you to subscribe, like and share my podcast with others. Your support will help me reach to those whom I might not be able to reach otherwise. Thank you and take care until we meet for the next episode.

    Coffee Table Stories - Ep 11: 5 Things about Financial Planning I wish I knew in my 20s | Be a Crorepati

    Coffee Table Stories - Ep 11: 5 Things about Financial Planning I wish I knew in my 20s | Be a Crorepati

    My friends as I'm rushing towards my 40s I really feel that there are important yet very basic facts and knowledge I didn't have in my early 20s or when I was in the early stage of my earning journey. If I knew certain things and had I planned my investments in a different way I would have made a much bigger corpus of funds that I currently have. One can actually become a crorepati with just few basic principles of investing. I want to talk about those things in this short and solo episode of Coffee Table Stories. I feel financial planning is very important for financial independence and hence is a very important life skill which should be taught in the early years and one should not just be left on fate and experience to decide.I have shared by own financial debacles in this episode so that those who are listening can learn.

    Coffee Table Stories - Ep 9: Part 1 - Conversation with Vikrant about Human Psychology | Emotional Toolkit | Psychedelics | Softer Assets | Ayahuasca | Magic Mushrooms

    As Vikrant says one should have the board of directors in their life, ofcourse a different person for a different situation. Someone who is available and most importantly not judgemental when you discuss things with them. I found one of my ‘Board of Director’ in my ex super boss, he has been a coach, a mentor & a ‘Go to’ person for me and also someone who understands human psychology from a very practical but a perspective which is equally balanced by science and spirituality. Presenting you first part of the two part conversation where we discuss:

    #GriefTrauma – What should be our responsibility when tragedy or loss comes our way

    What is #Contagioneffect - is it real?

    What are some of the Softer assets that we need to acquire - A good #Pysch, A good #coach, #Reading, Wisdom of the old world - #ayahuasca #magicmushrooms

    In the next episode the conversation will be even more intense and deep, keep listening to us.

    If you still haven’t subscribed to our channel then please do and share our content with you friends and loved ones, whom you think can benefit out of these wonderful conversations.
