Sushrut Munje shares on Frankaffe an observation on the activity of choosing the best clove everyday - and how that relates to us leading our happy lives.

Jar of Cloves

Do we lead our happy lives telling ourselves that we have been under complete control of the circumstances? Do we believe we have made the best choices? Are we capable of identifying the best path, the best turn, choosing the right shirt? Is the clove we picked truly the best of the lot?

Sushrut Munje shares on Frankaffe, what it takes to build a good company, experiences at Hammer and Mop & SILA, and how Ben Horowitz inspires through his tales.

Sushrut Munje, on Frankaffe, shares how a little girl and her cobbled street had the most insightful lessons on life - some things are easier said than done :)

Along the Cobbled Street

While on my late evening stroll, I saw a little girl intently approaching a hole in the cobbled street with a stone in her hand. Settling down beside it, she started fitting the stone in the hole, thus attempting to make the surface smoother, bringing it to one level, completing it for the world to appreciate. It was an exercise, the stone was in no mood to comply but the little girl was insistent. She kept trying. There was a distinct nip in the air, I pulled my jacket closer and stood by the sidewalk – something about her focus had my full attention. Read more →
