Sushrut Munje shares on Frankaffe what the movie Captain America - Civil War (and Martin Freeman) taught him about management, leadership and communication.

What Civil War Taught Me About Management

I love watching movies, and the thrilling escape they offer into stories and characters made real. What grips me is the power of narration, and the strength of this visual medium to dictate how I feel. Words fall short to convey how my heart clenches while watching my favorite characters do something amazing on the screen. We often fail to notice, but brands have the power to create that fluttering moment inside us too.

Thank you, Stan Lee, the courier guy. Read more →

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?

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?

Being a Blind Dog

It was very easy for me to wiggle out of the responsibility of hosting Jimmy, but with this unusual experience come new lessons. I remember little Jack, now it has been little Jimmy. Representing two ends in a dog’s life, an eternal circle through which they keep teaching us mortals of how to love without expectations.
