We all by now know the famous tale of Puri RathYatra.
But the story of the 2nd Oldest #RathYatra is unknown to most.
The story is from Bengal.

Here's how it started with the grace of swayam Jagannath Prabhu completing 625 years this year.

Once upon a time there was a Bengali Sadhu named Durbananda Brahmachari. He was a biiiig devottee of Prabhu Jagannath. So one day he decided to go to Puri for pilgrimage & offer Bhog to Prabhu with his own hand.
All his desires were crushed when the Temple authority denied him the privilege. Broken-hearted, the sage decided to fast until dεαth.
But dont we know Prabhu loves us so much that he can never deny his Bhaktas. One the 3rd day of his fast, Prabhu swayam came to speak to him in his dreams. Jagannath then told to the sage, "Hey Bhakta, i am moved by your devotion- i myself desire to have Bhog from your hand".
Saying this Prabhu asked the sage to return back to Bengal . In the banks of Bhagirathi, there's a place called Mahesh where He will send the sage a huge Daru Brahma (trunk of neem tree). Prabhu then instructed Sadhu baba to make idols of Jagannath, Balaram & Subhadra with it.
Hearing Prabhu in his dreams, Durbananda returned to Bengal & continued his sadhana. Finally on a rainy night the trunk appeared at Mahesh. Jumping in the water, with a lot of toil finally the sage picked up the trunk & erected the idols of the three.
We call it Mahesh er Rathyatra This is the 2nd most oldest Rathyatra after Puri & the oldest in Bengal. Lakhs of people visit here every year for Darshan thus making it famous.

Courtesy of @edbrisson's wonderful thread on breaking into comics –
https://t.co/TgNblNSCBj – here is why the same applies to Product Management, too.


There is no better way of learning the craft of product, or proving your potential to employers, than just doing it.

You do not need anybody's permission. We don't have diplomas, nor doctorates. We can barely agree on a single standard of what a Product Manager is supposed to do.

But – there is at least one blindingly obvious industry consensus – a Product Manager makes Products.

And they don't need to be kept at the exact right temperature, given endless resource, or carefully protected in order to do this.

They find their own way.

5, Methods and Expected Outcomes
(Unexpected Outcome = New Coronavirus Pandemic)
So the cryptocurrency industry has basically two products, one which is relatively benign and doesn't have product market fit, and one which is malignant and does. The industry has a weird superposition of understanding this fact and (strategically?) not understanding it.


The benign product is sovereign programmable money, which is historically a niche interest of folks with a relatively clustered set of beliefs about the state, the literary merit of Snow Crash, and the utility of gold to the modern economy.

This product has narrow appeal and, accordingly, is worth about as much as everything else on a 486 sitting in someone's basement is worth.

The other product is investment scams, which have approximately the best product market fit of anything produced by humans. In no age, in no country, in no city, at no level of sophistication do people consistently say "Actually I would prefer not to get money for nothing."

This product needs the exchanges like they need oxygen, because the value of it is directly tied to having payment rails to move real currency into the ecosystem and some jurisdictional and regulatory legerdemain to stay one step ahead of the banhammer.
