    However, the compensation amount seems so inadequate at times. When you consider this young air-hostess, and her sudden and accidental death in a Chennai amusement park, her death at the age of 20 cannot be compensated by with a compensation amount of Rs. 25 lakhs (she would have earned far more during her career, besides the shock of somebody dying so young in an accident that could have been prevented). As one can figure out by reading the news article, the death inside the amusement park happened because the proper safety procedures were not followed by the park operatives; and why were…

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar Click here to view the embedded video. (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) Since the release of Jeethu Joseph’s Malayalam film “Drishyam” (Visual) in 2013, it has been remade in four different languages. The latest is Nishikant Kamat’s Hindi adaptation. In each remake, whether it is the Kannada, Telugu or the Tamil version, the story doesn’t change, right from the opening shot to the way it ends, except the actors.

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar Interviewing movie stars is usually a cut-and-dried affair. When a new film is about to open in cinemas, entertainment reporters get a call from the publicity agency. A couple of days later, you are ushered into a room with a dozen waiting journalists, and after an hour or so, you are taken to the celebrity for the promised interview. With the warning: 15 minutes only. The questions follow a set pattern – the film, the star’s other projects and perhaps their career. But one interview with Tabu is enough to shatter this template. The fiery actress, whose…

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) In his debut film “Masaan” (Crematorium), director Neeraj Ghaywan chooses to tell the story of three characters. Two are human, and the third is the ghats of Banaras – riverfront steps leading to the holy Ganges that double up as cremation grounds for Hindus. Stunningly shot by Avinash Arun, Ghaywan’s film is austere but effective, managing to oscillate between its two story threads without losing its flow for the most part.

But if one thinks about it with a clear mind, no matter how much we like American or English television, when we look at the vast population of Indians, who are not culturally at the urban level as the youth in this country have reached, will have no interest in shows that do not relate to them.

The trailer of the movie is well made. It excites you over a prospect of a nice murder mystery, severely lacking in the Bollywood industry.  But sadly, the movie is at best, average.The only thing that held the movie together was the plot, which was well-written, but the casting destroyed everything.

As a mother, I'm not offended by the photo, but I can understand why others are. My oldest daughter is six and just this year I felt brave enough to wear a bikini again.

But does an Etsy shop really count as a business? According to 76% of sellers, the answer is yes. And while many do supplement their income in other ways, around 30% of sellers say their store is their sole occupation. The report doesn’t specify how much Etsy sellers are taking in from their…

    Being a woman of a certain age—okay, okay, early thirties, with mid sliding in faster than I’d like—it’s inevitable that I have become an aunty to several children several times over. “My” first child was a bump before I realized what that bump meant, when her proud mother sailed in, stomach out in a flattering black dress that disguised that bump from long range viewing until you got very close and you could see that barrier between the two of you. Scary things, babies. I’m always struck by that perfect physical metaphor of contrast—the bump, the baby curled up…

    I want to tell you the last story first: we had just returned from dinner and were using our phone torches to climb up the small hill back to our cottage. It was pitch black and in the night we heard the crickets and the rustling, and then we heard a great big crash. Instantly, we both paused. The sound had come from fairly near us, but we still couldn't see beyond our feet. "Might be monkeys," I said, giggling nervously and she said nothing, only began walking again, and this time the noise grew closer, it made a HMPHH and it was above our heads and everywhere, and then there was a trumpet,…

    I found out about Avirook Sen’s Aarushi while I was on holiday in the hills of Tamil Nadu last week. Saying a thankful prayer to technology, I instantly got it on my Kindle and began reading as soon as I possibly could. {Man, don't you LOVE the Kindle? I do. I've never understood the debate between people who are all like "oh books are so physical" because the Kindle is a true reader's best friend. You can carry your whole entire library with you on holiday--very important as someone who used to lug around five extra kilos just in books, and now the new airline handbaggage limit has gotten…

    Baking is an exact science.I mean, I read somewhere that cooking is an art and baking is science, and I guess that makes sense, because while I'm not one of life's feeders, I get excited only briefly by fresh ingredients and rarely use them all, leaving several vegetables to shrivel at the bottom of my veggie drawer, there's something about baking that appeals to me.I loved my chemistry set when I was young.

    Our prime minister is the master of social media. Don’t just take my word for it—he’s been lauded as a “social media genius” all across the world. Every single word that he types into his phone and sends—or does he get an aide to type it for him?—is viral gold, the stuff media marketers would kill for. In several ways, this is an excellent thing---instead of waiting for dreary news reports from his press office, we get instant 140-character updates on what he’s thinking, his foreign policy and even sometimes his trending hashtags.

  • Brand Update : Honda Relaunches Jazz

    24 Jul 2015 | 11:53 pm
    After withdrawing the premium hatchback Jazz in 2013, Honda has relaunched Jazz with an aggressive pricing. Jazz is an interesting marketing story of a brand which failed not because of product but pricing. Honda had priced out Jazz in its earlier avataar. Now the company had become very responsive to the value conscious nature of the Indian consumer. Jazz in the 2015 version has been priced upwards of Rs 5.31 lakh which makes a great value proposition in the segment. The Jazz will compete with i20 and higher version of Swift. The new aggressive pricing, new styling and the Honda brand…

After messing the once iconic brand, HUL has relaunched Liril with the classic jingle and the iconic imagery of a girl in a waterfall  immortalized 40 years ago  by the original Liril girl - Karen Lunel . After killing the freshness theme ( for whatever reasons) during early 1990s, the brand went into various positioning themes and later faded into oblivion. Now the brand is back to its roots.Watch the relaunch here : Liril relaunchWhile the relaunch brings back fond memory of this great brand to many of us, it may not ring the bell to the new generation.

    Maruti Suzuki which has a bear grip on the Indian passenger car market is desperate for a share in the premium car market. While the company has huge lead in the mid and small car segment, it so far has not been able to break into the premium segment ( 10 lakh above). Maruti had tried earlier with its Grand Vitara, Baleno, and latest Kizashi but failed to replicate the success of its affordable car range. Maruti Suzuki is now trying to go through the channel route to tap this segment. According to reports, the company is opening a premium channel named ( internally) as Nexa. Maruti plans…

    In an interesting move, Pepsi has demoted its mango drink brand Slice into a sub-brand of Tropicana. Slice which was launched in 1993 , came in to limelight with some good advertisement campaigns. The notable is the Aamsutra campaign featuring the brand ambassador Katrina Kaif. Tropicana was launched in 2004 as a healthy juice brand. What Pepsi has done with Slice is to migrate the brand to Tropicana by launching Tropicana Slice . The first launch being the variant Tropicana Slice Alphonso. The new product is being launched with the TVC featuring Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur.Watch…

  • Goodbye to performance appraisals?

    26 Jul 2015 | 11:06 pm
    I am not bowled over by the news - rather inaccurately reported in many places- of Deloitte and Accenture doing away with performance appraisals. First, they are not doing away with appraisals, they are doing away with annual appraisals. These, they have concluded, involve too much time and money and do not produce commensurate benefit. An FT article estimates that Deloitte must have wasted £ 200 million every year on these appraisals.Deloitte will replace its elaborate appraisal with a set of four questions. Accenture will provide appraisal on the go. All of which is fine. But it's…
  • Growing irrelevance of B-schools

    19 Jul 2015 | 10:46 pm
    Everybody knows what B-schools are for. They are a screening mechanism for companies that want to hire bright people. Whether the courses they teach add value to businesses is unclear. Whether their faculty and research have anything to contribute is even less clear. This is not a situation peculiar to any country. It's a problem that B-schools everywhere have to face up to, as is evident from an article on UK B-schools. If B-schools are not seen to be contributing much to businesses either through their students or their research, it is only natural that industry should stop perceiving much…
  • Grexit drama is still unfolding

    9 Jul 2015 | 3:42 am
    It does appear that unfolding events point to a Grexit. Today, Greece is supposed to present its plan. The EU, the IMF and ECB will review the plan and give their response on Sunday. If they find the plan unacceptable, it will be Grexit. That means, immediately, that Greece will not have the euro as its currency. Eventually, it could also mean that Greece leaves the European Union.Is this inevitable? Well, yes, because the EU is unwilling to accept that debt restructuring must be the basis for any deal. It's the IMF that made a powerful case for restructuring ahead of the vote in Greece on…

    The ministry of HRD is embroiled in yet another controversy involving the IIMs. Such confrontations have been going on since 2004 when Murli Manohar Joshi, then HRD minister in the NDA government, wanted the IIMs to reduce their fee for PGP to Rs 30,000.Every time, there is a run-in with the government, the IIMs contend that their autonomy is under threat. Legions of alumni are mobilised. An adulating middle class and a media that believes that government can do no good rush to the support of IIMs. Politicians and bureaucrats beat a hasty retreat. We have seen this played over and over again.

I have to say that this is the impression I too have formed over the years.The CCP no longer subscribes to full-blown communism- it is committed to the market economy to a degree. More importantly, it's not the monolithic entity that most people outside think it is, with people of a particular orientation only being included and those at the top dictating the line. It is highly pluralistic and there is plenty of room for people to express their views:With 86m members, the CCP is a pluralistic organisation that…

The word guru means the one (ru) who helps in removing ignorance (gu).

    This is from An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations [1776] by Adam Smith (1723 – 1790), the great Scottish moral philosopher and the granddaddy of classical economics. This division of labor, from which so many advantages are derived, is not originally the effect of any human wisdom, which foresees and intends that general opulence to which it gives occasion. It is the necessary, though very slow and gradual consequence of a certain propensity in human nature which has in view no such extensive utility: the propensity to truck, barter and exchange one thing for…

In this respect, he is following an ancient tradition that once made India a great trading nation that carried its amazing soft power on merchant ships. Although the land boundary agreement was the most visible victory during Modi’s visit, other accords were…

    2 Jun 2015 | 4:33 pm
    I found my ideal do-nothing place in Ladakh’s Nubra Valley. It was a place for long walks in the meadows, reading books with a cup of tea in a garden chair, eating seabuckthorn fruits on the riverbed, relishing apricots straight off the tree, hiding behind the bush watching a herd of Bactrian Camel in the wild, chasing shepherds, walking along the river and watching sunsets while listening to sweet sound of the flow. The days in Nubra were filled with activity and yet I wasn’t really doing anything. A wise man once said, “Happiness is like a butterfly which, when…

    The Startup Guy

  • Be warned of the Culture of Excess

    Vijay Anand
    29 Jul 2015 | 11:28 pm
    The big moves, are made to polarize. You can’t win everyone, at the sametime, it is important to let go of those who aren’t pretty much bhakts of what it is that you are building to get to the finish line. But you can also lose your right hand man if you decide to go the other extreme. When I saw pictures of the Flipkart office, I knew Amazon had won the war. In the west, entrepreneurship is a bug that bites you when you are in school (college). Hence the reason why there is an ecosystem around Cambridge, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley etc. In India, it is the org where you get your…
  • Every Friggin Grocery Shopping App is Broken.

    Vijay Anand
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:26 am
    There is so much money going into all these grocery startups, but i have a feeling that fundamentally the whole experience is flawed. Browsing through categories in an app is so tedious that I’d give up, if I have to do this every week over and over again. I actually tried shopping for the list once, using Bigbasket.com – It was hopeless. I realized half the items were not available. My cook is also picky to the point of the brand of flour we use. at home my mom does the same thing. It is better not to buy at all, rather than buy a different brand. So, I gave up and went to the…
  • Thoughts on Finding a Mentor

    Vijay Anand
    15 Jul 2015 | 12:56 am
    To get a mentor, and to even make use of them well, you need to be able to ask the right questions. You need to mature first on your perspective as an entrepreneur (and fundamentally a human being) in order to be able to do that. No mentor, or respectable one, enjoys spending time with a child. The one thing every mentor revels in, is in seeing a perspective that is deeper than his, but lacks experience. That’s where mentorship becomes a mutually beneficial relationship; One built on respect, rather than old school rules of unconditional devotion. “When I was a child, I talked…

    A lot depends on the kind of business you are running, the target segment etc. I’d do as much as refining and narrowing down as early as possible – because every segment that isnt a direct fit, but is getting bombarded either walks away with negativity and more importantly is a waste of valuable money. I’d leverage your social media for all its worth. Craft a messaging that targets the first segment of market that you believe is a very close fit to. Identify two more such market segments.

  • What’s wrong with Airtel Zero and Internet.org

    Vijay Anand
    11 Apr 2015 | 1:57 am
    I’ve been getting a lot of folks asking me why Airtel Zero is a bad idea and why it goes against Net Neutrality. Most folks actually believe it is an innovation by the operators and those of us in the camp asking for NetNeutrality are trying to thwart it. Well, Im hoping a slightly different perspective would help. In order to understand netneutrality, there is something that we all must understand well – which is the notion of commons. There are certain things, assets and infrastructure that belongs to everyone. Weather is one. The way we handle minerals and natural resources is…

    By Sabhya Kumar: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice continues to thrive in literary circles for reasons more than one, whether it’s the revolutionary Lizzie Bennett or the egoistically enigmatic Mr Darcy.

As legions of film makers attempt to immortalise the classic, we explore the best and the worst adaptations of the Victorian original. 1. Pride and Prejudice (BBC’s TV Miniseries): Undoubtedly, the best remake of any book, of any period of time, anywhere. Colin Firth oozes charm as…

Clean installing Windows 10 on your PC before updating is a bit problematic since your Windows 7/8 product key isn't the same as the one Windows 10 requires.

    However, the compensation amount seems so inadequate at times. When you consider this young air-hostess, and her sudden and accidental death in a Chennai amusement park, her death at the age of 20 cannot be compensated by with a compensation amount of Rs. 25 lakhs (she would have earned far more during her career, besides the shock of somebody dying so young in an accident that could have been prevented).

    Some things can be pretty shocking. Imagine having bought a new bike, and then getting transferred to a new city. New bike owners are paranoid about the maintenance of their bikes and spend time taking care of them. Depending on somebody else to care for them, even for a few hours, is something that seems odd; but if you have got a transfer, you have to depend on somebody else to transfer the bike for you. Nowadays a lot of people depend on packers and movers for the same, but the railways also have a good service to carry cargo, and ensuring the movement of cars and bikes through the…

    This issue rose out of a dispute, but the basic point is a point that really cannot be disputed. When roads are not wide, and when there is a probability of high congestion, then the availability of parking on the road is something that needs to be decided by the traffic authorities and the municipal authorities. It is basic common sense that when the road in an area is not really wide enough for both traffic to pass through and for parking on the side of the road, something has to give and the smooth movement of traffic is a priority. In this case, there was a dispute over making a divider…

As usual, the recrimination game blame started, with the corporation and the government both claiming that they are doing the best they can, but with the huge amount of rain, it was just impossible to prevent flooding. The critics however claimed that the corporations had really not done anything after all the promises made during the disaster of the 2005 flooding, and with construction activities going on all over the city, there was localized flooding in many parts, spread all over the…

Ideally, one really does not expect courts and tribunals to be in the business of stopping pollution, but when Government bodies are turning a blind eye and not doing anything, and health of people is getting affected, courts do get involved since people have rights; if these are rights are getting affected due to inaction by the Government, then they have a right to go to court which will rule in their favor (and sometimes with penalties to various Government…

The weather changed and the summer came; harsh sun, draining every little drop of moisture from the parched earth. Where once the river flowed abundantly, now flows barely a stream, inches high, just about enough for the fish to breath. It seems like a harsh summer beating down and parching the practices; ‘Twas grace! – the meditation, – the beautiful, healing ujjai breath, – that deep silence and stillness, – that scintillating…

    There are couple of shloka’s  from Gita that resonate deeply with me. One such is shloka 34 from chapter 9. It says: manmana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru mam evaisyasi yuktvaivam atmanam mat-parayanah and my heart danced with joy when Guruji sang this in a discourse last year. I also like the translation of this shloka by Eknath Easwaran in his book “The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living – Vol 2“. He writes: Fill your mind with Me; serve Me; worship me always.

We’re given our heads, our thoughts, our minds; we’re given our hearts, our capacity for compassion and kindness, and we’re given our hands, which is acts of service.

  • Retribution - Reparation... And Colonialism

    24 Jul 2015 | 6:37 pm
    Call it reparation, or call it payback – or call it retribution; call it what you will. The latest speech by Dr Shashi Tharoor has, once again, brought the colonial memory to the fore of the public consciousness; sad part is that it failed to ignite a debate on the issue of the colonial damage, and the payback and apologies by Britain, or their absence. It lead to a series of plaudits – well deserved, no doubts – on Dr Tharoor; but, by and large, completely failed to tackle the larger issue of an apology and return of the loot by The United Kingdom.Why should the UK do either when the…

  • Being Indian - 3 : The 1000 Year Slavery

    A cursory glance at Modern India will reveal a deepening line of historical misinterpretation in some fringe segments of our society which tends to place inordinate emphasis on the myth of Free Rule after 800 or 1000 years of slavery or foreign rule; the same fringe tends to place a huge emphasis on the mythical relatively heavier persecution during the Muslim Dynasties that ruled various parts of India from around 1150-1200 AD onwards  till around 1675-1700 AD. These people make the first and most glaring error when they claim Muslim Rule was till 1850AD or thereabouts, which is a sad…
