I send infrequent newsletters about tech , product, and poetry

About

Hi,

I am Madhur Chadha, and this is my personal blog where I write about everything from poetry, to tech, and to product management. This blog has evolved as I have and leans towards whatever is most interesting in my life at any given point of time.

If you landed here because you know me as a youtuber / RJ/ or a poet, the best way to see my work would be my Youtube

If you know me as a Product manager, then Twitter is the place to connect.

What do I do for a living: Sadly, no I am not a full-time poet or a blogger.ย I am a Product Management professional, currently working for Google . Prior to that I have worked for likes of Uber, Flock, and Microsoft (My Linkedin)

There is a high likelihood that you have used at-least one of the products I have helped build ๐Ÿ™‚

A long long time go when I was writing my LinkedIn Bio, I wanted to summarise my professional passion in one line, and I wroteย  “I love connecting people via digital means” . This was before I was into Product Management,mbefore Google, before Uber, Before Flock, before Microsoft, before Cognizant….It is funny how things fall into place

Apart from my day job, I used to ย host a radio segment Alfaaz ,dedicated to poetry on an online radio channel called MeraSangeet

What Else: I used to consult/help a few NGOs and a Few Startups in Online presence. I have setup websites, trained people, helped them in marketing, created marketing collaterals such as videos ,posters, mission statements and Logos.

At ISB I led the marketing activities for iDiya: National Social venture contest and created marketing collateral for some of the biggest events.

I have also worked in creating long-term vision ,organizational structure and communication channel for NGOs

Some more: I was a shy kid and could not speak in front of more than 3 people. Over the years, due to parental support, some awesome teachers and loads of ย luck, I was able to overcome this ย fear of mine and reach a level I thought was not possible for me.

I compered for college festivals (main compere), won inter college national level debates, Group Discussions, extempores and even became an RJ . I started passing out the techniques that helped me overcome stage fright to people who needed it.

It was incorporated as part of Lead India 2020 training program(I am a Youth leader since 2006) and I have personally trained over 300 students on it with encouraging results.

      Its really shame and its high time that we should stop giving the cricketers too much importance. They are selfish and not even a single have come to support the cause.

    Hey madhur,
    Just wanted to say that your latest ‘letter’ to the Gurgaon administration was a brave piece of sarcasm which truly reflected the biased behavior of the Government.No other form of action but these, could surely be the best tool to mock on them.Felt happy on reading it. Btw, i have a blog too by name, potboilers.blogspot.com
    Do visit it when you have enough time and feel free to voice your opinion. Will be glad to have your participation in every little way that you can

    Madhur couldn’t get to hear my poem on wednessday 20th nor on thursday 21st —-did some problem crop up/

    1. madhurchadha Avatar

      Hi Rajni
      My Bad, due to interviews about kai bo che, the show alfaaz was cancelled last week. I was out of town since 14th hence did not get the info on time and could not inform you. Completly my fault.

      You poem will be up this week(coming wednesday). Also please check the timings of the show “Chat and Chai:” on the merasangeet website,they are being changed slightly. You can even ask that on their facebook page.

      I will let you know the exact time as soon as I get em.

      My apologies for the confusion

    Your introduction is well written. You come across as a person who is down- to -earth. I like that.

    Read a few of your painting posts. Painting isn’t really my thing though.

    Can you guide me to some of your best writing?

        Thank you. I like to read stories… and humor/ satire. I’ll look around.

        Oh by the way, the name is Dag- ny. Rhymes with Rag… which is a undesirable coincidence. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Per chance I listened to Nostalgia-an ode to the college life and friends.. and it was such a matter of fact recording of those days that most of it covered all our days at RBI during the period 1963 on wards. I am now 67 and other surviving friends( We call our selves Dolts) are above 70. Since I had a few old and forgotten photos that escaped dustbin, that I could not resist using your poem and voice partly as a background to those photos in my short movie for personal use. But my conscience forbids me to use the same without your permission and accordingly I shall be thankful to your good self if you grant the necessary permission to use the recorded poem.I have not changed a single word in it but edited/deleted some paras for which I could not find the supporting photographs.
    I hope you will grant the necessary permission and after that I will upload the movie YouTube for my other Dolt friends to see it.
    Waiting for a response.
    with regards
    thanks
    god bless you

    Dost, you are basically an asshole.
    You write pathetically, and you think you are some thought leader.
    Just look at this website. yuck!
    Just because AAPtards made one highly stupid and ordinary post of yours a bit popular, you have started thinking that you are next Kejriwal.
    Good luck asshole

      Thank you for your lovely Comment Mrinal, what flowery language you have.
      Nevertheless, it surprises me that all you could see was one post. I do not blame you though, people tend to see only what they want to see and ignore everything else. Sad part is that you did not even care to read the about me page(which is the page you commented) or bother to see all other links strewn across this site. You even ignored the fact that the alleged article is not even the most read article on the site (Tip, they are on top of EVERY page)…
      Nevertheless, thanks for your wishes…and all the best with your life “Dost”
