The most interesting travel stories, I’ve often felt, aren’t the journeys you make to some exotic location faraway. It is those you undertake to a known place, where the landscape might have changed, but your feet recognise the terrain underneath.

Allegri. How I wish we get him.

What is important is shape and discipline and instincts. Your instincts are most important, I think. When I don’t trust my own instincts, when I doubt myself, that’s when I make mistakes. As a manager, you learn the most from failure.

In the case of the North Korean missile crisis, the provocations of Trump and Kim fed off each other to create an unacceptably high risk of a major catastrophe. The fact that the face-off did not lead to disaster, and, in fact, seems to have brought about some good, does not mean that either of the gentlemen is to be complimented for their high-wire acts.

What is the most important thing in our life? Or what makes us happy? Assisi tries to break it down as always and leaves us thinking and helps to break it down for us.

Finally, as if to make amends, he recently donated his entire salary of the tenure, close to Rs 90 lakh, to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. This again turns out to be a meaningless act. The amount is a minute fraction of his net worth, and what is the virtue in making amends that come at no cost or sacrifice? For six years, he occupied a position that comes with duties, and what does it say about someone who thought it was alright to ignore these?
