1/6 Today's thread is dedicated to my wife @jhoomer's startup journey of building a brand she believes in. She just launched her first product "Hea Immunity Boosters" on @amazon. I'm so proud!🙂

Ps: Do support by RTing or ordering here: bit.ly/Buy-Hea 2/6 I got the shock of my life when she told me late last year that she also wants to quit her job to startup. From double-income-no-kids a year back, we suddenly moved to a kid+no income!🤯

But as she told me about what she wants do, it became clear why its a great fit for her.

As India observes a spectacular solar eclipse, and TV channels can’t seem to talk beyond religion and astrology, lets remember the biggest scientific breakthrough linked to a solar eclipse.

Proving Einstein’s General theory of relativity a 100 years ago.

A thread👇(1/n) In 1915, Einstein postulated that the space-time fabric gets warped around heavy objects. Due to this even light, which otherwise moves in a straight line, should bend while passing a heavy object.

The closest heavy object for us is the Sun. There was one problem though. (2/n)

Great essay by PM @narendramodi on opportunities in the era of #COVID19. This pretty much reads like a request for startups!

Here are 10 startup ideas / problem statements for the post-COVID world inspired by @PMOIndia's post.

A thread👇(1/12) Telemedicine for the world - Can we build a platform for Indian doctors to serve patients anywhere in the world? Earning in dollars, spending in rupees was the foundation of India's IT industry. Can the same happen in healthcare too? (2/12)

My hobby: To keep checking @Google trends for tracking what the world is up to. Throws up multiple dramatic shifts which have all happened over past few weeks due to #COVID19. A thread👇

Fasten your seat belts! (1/10) The rise of DIY: Forced by #lockdown, people are figuring out how to do things themselves. There is a sudden rise of interest in easy cooking recipes, home workouts, how to fix, how to clean etc. Personal favorite: how to cut your hair. Pro tip: don't (2/10)

Lots of excitement around the launch of #AccountAggregator and rightly so! Paradigm shift which gives the power of their own data back to the users. Have been thinking about how will value be created and captured in this new era. A thread 👇 (1/10) Doesn’t seem like an #AccountAggregator itself will be able to capture a lot of value because it is not allowed to read or store the data it is collecting. It’s just a pipe, a utility. A secure one sure, and it will be paid a fees for that service. (2/10)

1/ Another great talk by @naval on blockchains. My top takeaways below.
@naval 2/ ICOs getting more attention but decentralisation is the real deal. Most of the ICOs shouldn't be happenning.
