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.

Of what use is a sock drawer of a dead person? 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.

What I Talk About When I Talk About The Revenant

[The Revenant 2015] A juicy tale of revenge, made haunting by the cold winds and the tall pines, is stuff that makes legends. What is it about justice that excites us so much? What is it about the return of the protagonist, to wreck havoc in the life of the villain, that leaves us spell bound? Why do we celebrate the death of a bad person, why the gaudy wonder in our eyes as the vile body is stabbed for the crimes it has committed, why the heavy breathing of a satisfied mind, satiated by completion of a loop?
