The late pulp magazine writer Robert E. Howard (1906-36) and veteran Marvel writer/editor Roy William Thomas lived decades apart, yet remain inherently connected by the legendary Cimmerian, warrior-king character Conan the Barbarian, and by two new literary biographies. Both are engrossing stories and published by Pulp Hero Press — “The World’s Most Dangerous Books” as the publisher Bob McLain quips.

My 4 Year Journey since I quit Corporate to Join Social Sector

It's been almost four years since I started taking full-time interest (and sweating my hair out) in the social sector in India. In October, 2014, I quit my corporate job to find my calling, and I feel really grateful for the opportunities that have come my way to date on this path!

Reflecting on 2018

So it's that time of the year - the beginning of the 365-day cycle which we celebrate as new year. Although, I believe that the Earth is taking rounds and rounds around the Sun all the time since eternity, and hence every moment, it's completing a full circle from some point at its orbit. So ideally there is no need to make such a hype about the new year. However, I also believe, we should find more reasons and find them more often to celebrate and have fun in life.

Top Executive Assistants: Crashing the BS Party

So...the narrative about Executive Assistants has been diluted so much in the past 3 years or so that it's become more confusing than clarifying. Everybody's an "expert" these days posting fluffy, BS articles that generalize the grind, paint pictures that we're chaos wranglers and do-it-alls with a perma-smile plastered across our faces, and swimming joy laps in the underrepresentation, under compensation, underutilization and lack of empathy often suffered at the hands of the people we're low-key expected to take a bullet for. As someone with 26+ years in the seat, having given up the best years of my personal life to claw my way to the top of the EA game, I'm often pissed off seeing low ROI conferences duping EAs out of thousands of dollars, newbies claiming and weaponizing expertise they haven't actually earned, and articles/vlogs/blogs that serve no purpose other than pushing a personal agenda wrapped in yet another bullshit "Top 5 Ways To..." list or ad campaign.
