If you are overwhelmed with the daily routine of the here and now and don’t have time to step back and reflect. If you feel that you are increasingly surprised by new developments. If you feel that the lack of a broader picture makes your work less effective. Then you’ve landed on the right page.

Looking Sideways aims to make you step back, explore and reconsider. It aims to empower you to take a different tack to the challenge at hand. It aims to provide novel facts and evidence-based insights, and deconstruct self-evident truths (which are often just socially endorsed stereotypes). When the truth is no more than lies waiting to come out, curiosity is the best medicine.

Popular belief long held that one could steal a person’s soul (and hold him/her in one’s power) by casting a spell over something that belonged to the victim. Witchcraft the world over is predicated on such stealing of hair, nails, or making a puppet resembling the person.
