Sushrut Munje, on Frankaffe, equates revenue in a business venture to the monkey-cat tale from the Upanishads. An essay on business goals and priorities.

Revenue is a Monkey, not a Cat

I have plucked the monkey & cat subjects from a Upanishads tale, which a dear friend and guide recently shared. What has me spellbound is how the analogy floats through business and life, as if the principles apply to everything everywhere. You cannot clap with one hand, you cannot have a disciplined life without a happy you and the happy people around you, you cannot have a successful business without a sincere you and happy customers. It’s a joyous ride, and we better hold on tight :) Read more →

Sushrut Munje shares on Frankaffe what he talks about when he talks about The Revenant (2015), and how a juicy tale of revenge satiates the human hunger within.

Sushrut Munje shares on Frankaffe what organizations and business leaders can learn on team management from Spotlight (2015), directed by Tom McCarthy.

Spotlight made for an impressive watch – for every scene was designed to matter. The method and discipline followed by the investigative team of journalists was an effort to be studied, and it would be helping entrepreneurs conduct their business better for sure. Read more →

Sushrut Munje shares on Frankaffe his understanding of the Karma cycles, Moksha and Meera's haunting smile. Inspired by Bhajan: Kafi - Pag Ghungroo

Meera’s Haunting Smile

The fact that our life is but a perception is the core of ancient wisdom – often dismissed and sneered upon by many – but understood in essence by many as well. Everything is easier said than done, of course. Despite knowing the direction, we falter, thus dividing our reality into ‘practical’ and ‘ideal’. The distinction is convenient, for we respect the wisdom but justify our human way of life, thus stuck in karma cycles. Read more →
