Recently, I started working more closely than ever with the social media team at Khatabook. By ‘working closely’, I mean, getting my hands dirty by taking up execution, deep-diving into the creation of social media calendars, boosting, analytics — even captions!

It’s no secret that we hate Mondays. In fact we hate them so much, Sunday evenings sometimes start with Monday blues.
