Hi, I am Anubhav and this is my blog!

Like all blogs, this site too started as a collection of ideas, photos, travel stories, and side projects that I’ve been working on. I love trying and learning new things and consider myself as a generalist, the inspiration for leading life this way came from a TED talk by Nathan Myhrvold who has managed to excel in some crazy number of unrelated fields!

I work as a product manager in the fintech space, developing digital products for enterprises and financial institutions. Counting the relevant jobs, I started with the fintech PM role with Axis Bank in the Transaction Banking BU, managing multiple internal payments products. Post this, I worked at an NBFC building a loan underwriting platform from the ground up. These 2 stints gave me useful context on the consumers of fintech products, i.e. the program teams at financial institutions, consumers of the end-products and services delivered through these technology platforms, and the value chain in which this ecosystem operates. I then joined a tech startup, Zeta, building such modules that a financial institution needs to offer digital banking experiences. These products and services are increasingly being delivered over the cloud as a service and hence the term – BaaS. So, that’s what I did in a nutshell till last year. I started as an analyst and transitioned to product management gradually. You can know more about the earlier roles on my Linkedin profile.

I am an INTJ personality type, love building systems, processes, and flowcharts, and dread small talks and monotony!

Check the blog header for pages and posts I have added to this blog. Pages are usually where I spend most of the time on the blog, as these are my most recent and active interests. Plus, using pages allows me to try a new note-taking app in the market and link it back here instead of using the default WordPress editor. I’ve come to love Airtable, Notion, Miro, Canva, Pinterest, and others.

Posts are further divided into categories but these days I don’t post much, and instead prefer Twitter threads and Instagram stories for public posts, Notion for long-form evergreen notes, and Day One for personal journaling. But, now that you’re here, you can pick one of the categories such as Travelogues from the menu, to begin with. Blogging via Substack is seeing a comeback and Instagram is getting intrusive with ads, Twitter is already too broken for any meaningful reading or writing experience, maybe I’ll come back to this blog. I’ve already come to love the new WordPress block editor, making it easier to add and edit posts from the mobile app.

I’d recommend you to subscribe to the blog via email notifications as I don’t update it frequently, and I don’t see how else you’d get to know about a new post unless I share the link myself with you, of course, considering the limited audience of this site, haha!

If you like the blog or have any suggestions, let me know! Cheers!
