Its finally time for the first post. So why not start with something meaningful, something important to me. Through the course of life we realize that some things have extra importance for us.
Among other things, learning has always been a part of my life. And I’m not talking about the traditional learning, because I believe most real learning occurs outside the classroom, and only when you’re passionate and curious about it. Learning cannot be forced upon someone. An example would be learning online, with an infinite amount of resources present on the internet. Now it doesn’t take mind boggling student loans or unreasonably high tuition fees. The learning can start right at your phone or computer screen. All it takes is a strong will, and a decent internet connection ofcourse 😉
I’ve been fortunate to have learned online from many of the top universities in the world. Harvard, MIT, Yale, IITs, IIMs, you name it, all are online now. Recently I read an article on a blog about 45 free online courses which one can complete till December. And I took it as a challenge. Starting today, i’ll be doing all the courses in the list that attract my interest. The experience is surely going to be fun. 🙂
Also, lets make this social. I’ll be keeping everyone updated on the progress. You’re invited to take the challenge with me. We can do this much better together!

Until next time, like Steve Jobs said, “Stay hungry, stay foolish” 😉
