    Hello gentle readers. I'm back after a long vacay, and besides having to give up smoking again from scratch (smoked like a fiend on holiday, like a convict going to the gallows or something), I'm not sinking into that deep depression also known as the post-vacay blues. Trees are in full bloom, summer is very nearly here and my cats are still douchebags, but lovable ones.Reading! I didn't get many links done on holiday, so here is a slightly more abbreviated list than usual:This story in Indian Express about a missing girl and a cop whose mission it is to find her is awesome, and I saw it…

  • It was me, says Salman Khan’s driver in hit-and-run

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    30 Mar 2015 | 4:56 am
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar Actor Salman Khan’s defence in a decade-old hit-and-run case got a significant boost on Monday after his driver testified in court that it was he, and not the Bollywood star, who was behind the wheel of an SUV that ran over people in 2002.

    By Shashank Chouhan When Amazon India launched its fashion section in October last year, many called it a late entry in a market dominated by Flipkart-owned Myntra and Jabong. Three months down the line, the American online retail giant has registered a 300 percent growth in apparel sales and fashion has become one of its top three segments in India. The e-commerce industry in India is expected to cross $100 billion in the next four years, with 35 percent coming from fashion alone.

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) The protagonist in Harshavardhan Kulkarni’s “Hunterrr” (the tacky title is a product of Bollywood’s propensity to fiddle with spellings) is instantly recognizable. Mandar Ponkshe is someone we’ve all met, or been, at some point in life. He’s the guy who ogles at every passing woman, the man who brushes against a woman’s posterior in a crowded market, or stares at a nurse who is treating his sick friend. Kulkarni bravely attempts to humanize this character in a country that has…

    LG seems to be all set to unveil its 2015 flagship G4 smartphone on April 28, indicated by a press invite the company is sending out to the global media. While the company doesn’t spell it out, the ‘Gs’ on the invite, backed up by earlier rumours that the company would launch its next flagship phone by the end of April, do point at the launch of the G4. There have been several speculations about the LG G4’s specifications and even that it will come with a curved display, but we won’t comment on that.

    I recently came across Scripbox when one of my colleagues shared an interesting blog post of theirs. Scripbox is an investing platform which allows one to easily invest in Mutual Funds. Personally, I have been investing in some funds to get some tax advantage (ELSS Funds) through an independent fund manager. For first few investments I took his advice, though it wasn’t bad, later I realised I could have done better had I done my own research.

    Teewe is a Chromecast like HDMI dongle made by an Indian company. While it is Chromecast like, there are many differences which I try to point out in this post. To start with, I have a 32 inch LED TV in living room with a Chromecast plugged in to it (TataSky on another port). Chromecast is majorly used by my parents to watch old songs streaming through YouTube. There were few times my dad came to me asking whether he can cast a video he shot & I simply said “No”. I did that since I had to take him through the process of installing another app (like Allcast) and teach him how…
  • WhatsRemote – best way to use whatsapp from desktop / web browser

    Prashanth
    17 Dec 2013 | 10:39 pm
    WhatsApp has replaced texting for most of us and has become the default messaging app. Keeping it simple is the DNA of WhatsApp and they clearly decline adding new features if they think it complicates the way WhatsApp works. And hence even though there’s a huge demand from people to release a desktop client for WhatsApp, they didn’t bother doing it. I find it extremely unproductive to switch between phone and my mac while working. And hence I started looking for apps/ways to use WhatsApp on my computer. The first workaround I found through Googling was to use Bluestacks on the…

I made her sit aside me and hit bigbasket.com. I started adding items one after the other as she went on reading out her list. It took about an hour and a half since my mom started exploring other stuff on the website apart from list she had. As far as discounts are concerned, it was quite inline with offline grocery shops/supermarkets. Our order value was around Rs.3.4k & we got the discount of around Rs.300. I did search for coupons…

  • Why I Will Not Grow a Beard

    Amit Varma
    29 Mar 2015 | 7:15 am
    A Telegraph report tells us about a study that reveals that more and more men are growing beards because they are “feeling under pressure from other men and are attempting to look aggressive by being more flamboyant with their whiskers.” There are evolutionary reasons for this; apparently, we are wired this way. You will note, now, that there were more beards in the New Zealand team than in the Australian one in today’s World Cup final. Does this mean that one side was pretending to be macho and signalling aggressive intent, while the other side, um, didn’t need to?

    This comment of mine was published a couple of days ago on Scroll. Imagine Jerry Seinfeld is performing in India. A packed house is in attendance, getting rapturous as Seinfeld gets into his flow. And then, a bunch of hecklers from the Bajrang Dal disrupt the show. Seinfeld takes the interruption gracefully, but the hecklers won’t let him finish, and he eventually makes one last joke and then leaves the stage. What would your reaction be to this incident? I would be aghast, and very clear on who was in the wrong: the hecklers. If the Bajrang Dal chaps protested that Seinfeld’s…

    This is the 38th installment of my fortnightly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. The answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything, according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is 42. The computer that came up with this took 7.5 million years to calculate it, though the question for this answer wasn’t known. Well, I have a guess as to what it was. My guess is that Douglas Adams was a keen connoisseur of Pot Limit Omaha, and he got into the following hand with his friend Richard Dawkins. Adams had T985ds, spades and diamonds, and the flop…

Basically, Raychaudhuri’s great-great-grandfather, Rajkumar Sen, had once been “poisoned by his Brahmin guru and a co-conspirator, one Mr Mahalanabish (no relation of the famous statistician and progenitor of Indian planning).” Here’s a translation of the ballad that sprung up in response, which Raychaudhuri tells us is “still current in that area”: In the village of Kirtipasha lived a…

    27 Mar 2015 | 4:05 am
    I'm not actually into reading challenges. I think they're a good idea in theory, but I read so much anyway, and across the board, and my TBR pile is growing so high, that I don't want to add any more confusion to the list.

But I realised I was reading fewer Indian authors, and I made it a point to start this year with more of those.

    Hello gentle readers. I'm back after a long vacay, and besides having to give up smoking again from scratch (smoked like a fiend on holiday, like a convict going to the gallows or something), I'm not sinking into that deep depression also known as the post-vacay blues. Trees are in full bloom, summer is very nearly here and my cats are still douchebags, but lovable ones.Reading! I didn't get many links done on holiday, so here is a slightly more abbreviated list than usual:This story in Indian Express about a missing girl and a cop whose mission it is to find her is awesome, and I saw it…

    Foodies and Facebook seem made for each other in this digital age, as much as bread and butter and coffee and two sugars. I’m a grazer—I like to lurk on food groups seeing what’s hot and what’s not (actually, the “what’s not” reviews are always more fun to read), but there are loads of people who take the art of food writing—and by extension, food commenting and food sharing—super seriously on their various Facebook communities.Do you love to eat?

  • Remaking RBI: Rushing changes is unwise

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:04 am
    Moves are afoot to diminish the role of RBI in the financial sector. Whatever the theoretical merits of the different proposals, the government needs to hasten slowly. It's not as if financial regulation or the RBI in particular is an obstacle to growth today. There are plenty of other things the government needs to do more urgently in terms of the economic agenda - it's hard to see why remaking the RBI should be a priority at the moment.It may be well that the political establishment, including the bureaucracy, has been upset over the years over the RBI's stand on interest rates.Some of its…
  • Manufacturing: China's loss may not be India's gain

    29 Mar 2015 | 2:43 am
    India's manufacturing sector has disappointed in the past- it has failed to create the large number of jobs India needs. Many think that, with the right policies, India can grab a big share of manufacturing jobs out of China and into other Asian countries. This may not happen, as an article in the Economist points out.One reason China is expected to lose is that wages in China have been rising rapidly. But China is offsetting this through use of greater automation- it has stepped up use of robots- and by massive investment in infrastructure. If productivity gains keep ahead of wage rates,…

    25 Mar 2015 | 3:43 am
    As readers of this blog would know, I have always been sceptical about size in banking. It's not that the bigger you are, the more money you make; or the more spread about you are across nations, the more money you make.Today, three Cs- the costs of capital, compliance and complexity- overwhelm the size effect, as the world's top banks are discovering. The Economist tried to see what sort of return on equity the big global banks would make under the new Basel 3 capital requirements (they assumed equity capital requirement or core tier I equity would come to 12-12%). They stripped out one-off…

One report says that the move will affect 100 listed companies. That's a small number but these are the biggest names in business, so the move is indeed significant.The move came after it's become clear that women are heavily under-represented in top Germany companies and that the only way to get these companies to change is to shove quotas for women down their throats. Germany is only following in the footsteps of other European countries. Norway, Spain,…

    Many people — including some economists — often confuse money with wealth. This frequently leads to avoidable errors and bad policies. It is best to take money out of most discussions and focus on wealth, unless of course one is specifically discussing money. Wealth and money are distinct but often used interchangeably because wealth is always denominated in terms of money. The primary distinction is that wealth is real and money is nominal. Wealth is anything that we can consume in the broadest sense of the word. Wealth is what we eat, wear, find shelter in, store for later…

    India elected Narendra Modi to control inflation, restrain corruption and bring back jobs. Inflation has come under control; there has been no corruption scandal in the past ten months; but jobs are nowhere in sight. Modi is banking on his ambitious ‘Make in India’ programme to revive manufacturing and deliver a million new jobs that are needed each month. But the problem is that manufacturing is precisely the sector that has historically let India down. Since 1991, India’s growth has been driven largely by services.

But of late, many people are falling for spam on LinkedIn. No, I don't mean those mathematical puzzles (though they are irritating too) or "see the letters and the first word will tell.." (ditto). If you're a connection of mine that responds to either one of those there's only one thing I do, I…

  • Cambodian Countryside

    Arun Bhat
    30 Mar 2015 | 7:38 pm
    This photograph was made in a small village at edge of Tonle Sap Lake. It was a sunny afternoon and I was walking with my Cambodian friend along the narrow street that connected practically every house in the village. Houses on both side of the road were built on stilts to make room for rising water levels during the high season. At some point, when the village ended and the vast expanse of Tonle Sap began, the road dipped into the water and disappeared. I was standing at the edge of water and watched the life go by. Children played, ran behind each other and splashed water on their friends.
  • The Elephants of Sakrebailu

    Arun Bhat
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:52 am
    For the elephants of Sakrebailu, mornings are perhaps the best time of the day. This is a time when they are taken into the river, allowed to go deep into the waters and drink their heart’s fill. Soon after, the mahout will let the elephants relax in shallow waters and scrub them for almost an hour, until they are shiny clean! These elephants are looked after well: after the swim and scrub comes the time for grub. Only thing missing there is freedom, but for which, elephants of the world would have made a beeline for an accommodation in Sakrebailu elephant camp. I spent a few days last…
  • HIPA – 4th Season Awards in Dubai

    It appears, Dubai is fast becoming a photography capital of the world. The fourth season of HIPA Awards and celebration has brought the best photography crowd into the city, and it appears, this is going to continue in the years to come. When HIPA announced the names of special prizes, I was perhaps more excited than the people at HIPA themselves. The awarded photographers – Scott Kelby and Sebastiao Salgado – were people whom I have followed online for a long time, listened to them talk on videos or have read what they have written about photography in length. While Scott…
  • Rural Cambodia – Rice fields, sugar palms and a colourful sky.

    Arun Bhat
    6 Mar 2015 | 7:13 pm
    Last year, I spent two weeks travelling in Cambodia during the post-monsoon months. Starting from Siem Reap, I quickly moved on from the well-known temples of Angkor Wat, seeking to understand the everyday life in the country. The quest times took me through some remote places with endless stretch of lush green paddies, and also to floating settlements in Tonle Sap Lake. This small village, just a short drive north-west of Phnom Penh, was a pleasure to be in. It was an expanse of paddy fields dotted with small hamlets, through which you could keep walking all through the day (or drive, if…

  • How Ecosystems Evolve

    Vijay Anand
    27 Mar 2015 | 11:11 pm
    Ecosystems evolve in stages. All ecosystems need three fundamental ingredients – People, Entities and Ideas. A lot of folks would say governments need to get involved, but the only thing that Governments know how to do right is by enacting policies. Early on when the ecosystems are just emerging, and there are not enough trends to define policies by, if you get the government prematurely engaged, you will end up with a lot of policies that dont reflect ground reality – or worse reflect the interests of someone trying to capitalize on an emerging ecosystem. Governments are at best…
  • Do More (with less)

    Vijay Anand
    19 Feb 2015 | 12:23 am
    Learn to do more with less. It is very easy to raise your first small round of funding these days, but a funded startup also has very high expectations to meet to get the next round of funding. Set bad habits by paying too much, or spending vicariously, and you wont be able to keep up that culture when the going gets tough and everything falls apart. The rule is simple – if you start something, you have to consistently keep it going. You get brownies for everyone in office on tuesdays, find a way to keep it going till the end of time. One week when the brownie doesnt show, everyone…
  • #NetNeutrality, the fight is still on

    Vijay Anand
    28 Dec 2014 | 11:20 pm
    The Media reports that Airtel, the (not-so-friendly) giant who planned to roll out additional charges on VoIP (Skype/Viber) calls, made via already paid Data Plans has rolled back. Its good news, but the battle is just half-won. India has a history of battles half won. Take the case of Kashmir, the case with Pakistan, the case of China, we somehow retreat when we sight success and the enemy recedes for the time being, arms and comes back and takes away half of our spoils and will end up being a thorn in our flesh for generations to come. Net Neutrality is not a war we need to fight for the…
  • Why Airtel Threatens the Future of Tech in India

    Vijay Anand
    27 Dec 2014 | 2:54 am
    Part 1 of this issue is blogged here. Back in the 70s when we were laying the telecom network in India, someone cheapened out. They laid the copper wires, but laid very poor quality copper – because we were a third world country at that point and telephones were a luxury. Years later when broadband came to the country, the same infrastructure became the bottleneck because the poor quality copper could not transmit more than 256kbps of data. The Govt had to make enormous investments in optic fibre to get internet access to most of the country. Truth is, that infrastructure is still…
  • #boycottairtel for Breaking Net Neutrality

    Vijay Anand
    25 Dec 2014 | 11:20 pm
    A few days ago, Airtel one of the bigger Telecom operators in the country, decided to make the announcement that they will be charging additionally for VoIP traffic being generated on their network. Usage of Skype / Viber will be charged extra, above and beyond the data plan and data charges that you already pay. While at a glance this looks okay, and as if its an operator trying to cope with lost revenue in voice calls, this is the first step in what is a dangerous road and stands against ensuring that there is free access to the internet in the future. In short, this is their first step…

    Over the last decade or so, I've had the privilege to converse with several entrepreneurs. I say it is a privilege because there is a lot one could learn from these risk takers irrespective of their venture's outcome and not every one gets an opportunity to do so. Thanks to all those who made it possible. In almost all cases, I noticed one key attribute which all successful entrepreneurs shared, i.e., appetence. You read that right, it is not competence but an appetite and a strong desire to be an outlier, to be different, to do something which others can only dream of and perhaps change the…

    Well, for a while, I had been thinking about getting my hands dirty with User Experience. It is probably the most confusing thing to get started with! After a lot (rather looooooot) of reading, referencing and cross referencing, after gaining clarity and losing it along the way, I think I made some decent progress.

Not just that anniversary, I have lost track of CWS on the whole to be honest. With less than 10 posts in the last 12 months, I did consider if it is worth pursuing further. I am not sure what led to this thought? Probably fight against spammy comments, a family life with young kid at home, move back to India and general lack of time for anything in this place, leadership role at work, cost of hosting CWS increasing each year or may be a sheer lack of…

    By Amba Kak Summary The regulatory crack down on unfair billing practices in VAS had an impact on profit making in the market, although the extent is still unclear. There was a discernible shift in industry rhetoric, now heralding a shift to data (internet based products) and a focus on creating legitimate demand. A market for music couldn’t survive on duping consumers, especially when pirate markets offered alternatives. The rhetoric, however, may not necessarily have translated into better practices.

  • The Rap Against Rape: Why Are We Known As “The Land Of Rapes”?

    anshultewari@gmail.com (Youth Ki Awaaz)
    31 Mar 2015 | 2:11 am
    By Abhishek Jha: With close to half a million views, the video by the BomBaebs duo- Uppekha Jain and Pankhuri Awasthi- is a viral phenomenon. Instead of just highlighting rape as a problem, their Rap Against Rape asks us to examine our society to understand why rape happens. Interestingly, these causal agents appear to be some of the common innocuous things we all participate in, in our daily life. Thus they question our notion of an ideal girlfriend and wife, our disgust of menstruation, and the "kanya puja" favour for which people go to their neighbours. However, it is not without its…
  • Delhi In A Financial Crunch – Here’s What Manish Sisodia Plans For The Budget

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:02 am
    By IndiaSpend: The devolution of financial power by New Delhi — the seat of India’s central government — continues to roil the states with the provincial government of Delhi rebelling, and saying that it would lose Rs. 25,000 crore ($4 billion) over a decade. [caption id="attachment_45697" align="alignleft" width="850"] Photo Credit[/caption] In the course of presenting an interim budget last week, Delhi Finance Minister Manish Sisodia complained that since India’s capital is a union territory, it would not be able to cash in on the recommendations by the 14th Finance Commission to…

    By Sushmita Sihwag: "Looking for the living among blood-bathed bodies strewn around a canal and between ravines near Makanpur village on the Delhi-Ghaziabad border in the dead of night – the intervening night between May 22 and May 23 – with a dim struggling torchlight and ensuring one doesn’t trample upon bodies, all still stream through the mind like a horror film…" This chilling narrative of the 1987 Hashimpura massacre is an excerpt from a blog post by Vibhuti Narain Rai, the then Superintendent of Police, Ghaziabad, UP, who had witnessed the gut-wrenching scenario in which more…

    By Anshul Tewari: Youth Ki Awaaz turns 7 today! Every day in the last 7 years has been about challenging the norm. When I started, there was barely any space for citizen driven media or public opinion platforms to exist. One of the biggest challenges that the media faces today is to be true to its ideals of bringing out the harsh realities of the world and ensuring that people are informed. Last year, in particular, saw a turbulent phase in the Indian media. What it also saw was the ambitious rise of online journalism - with global platforms setting base in India and Indian ones growing fast.

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:43 am
    By Trishla Singh: Monica Lewinsky, who hit the headlines in 1998 for having a romantic relationship with Bill Clinton, instantly became a commodity to be sold in the 'Marketplace of humiliation'. The idea of Monica Lewinsky, a multi-dimensional individual seized to exist, and she was consumed by prying eyes and gossip. In this brilliant TED video, Lewinsky talks about how shaming has become a form of consumption. How corporations use gossip, invade the privacy of people, pry out the most humiliating parts of their lives and display it online - all for the sole purpose of garnering more…

    LG seems to be all set to unveil its 2015 flagship G4 smartphone on April 28, indicated by a press invite the company is sending out to the global media. While the company doesn’t spell it out, the ‘Gs’ on the invite, backed up by earlier rumours that the company would launch its next flagship phone by the end of April, do point at the launch of the G4. There have been several speculations about the LG G4’s specifications and even that it will come with a curved display, but we won’t comment on that.

  • When to make a store non-accessible to customers (Funskool)

    ashish
    8 Mar 2015 | 12:48 pm
    Typically stores spend a lot of time and energy in ensuring that their design is such that customers are able to freely browse, are able to find the right items that they want, and are drawn to items that the store wants to sell. There is big money in ensuring that stores get their placements right, make it comfortable for customers and so on. Makes sense, right ? So, you would expect a store selling stuff to kids and children to make it easy for parents to get there, for them to look at products, and so on, even when their children are there with them. Funskool is a brand that brings a large…

With the advent of automation, there is an expectation of faster processing and streamlined support, making the experience seem almost like a breeze (well, one can wish for some things, right ?). So, here goes my experience of the same, and what could be problematic for people visiting the Passport Seva Kendra. I went to the PSK (Passport Seva Kendra) located at Herald House, Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, New Delhi. It is an office located at 2 floors in the building, and with sort of gleaming new infrastructure…

    Of course, this is not the first time that this is happening, but the repeated occurrence cannot diminish the outrage and distaste that such incidents leave in the mouth. In India, there is a special significance in being a vegetarian, as followed in the name of religion rather than due to personal choice. A large number of Hindus, Jains and Buddhists are vegetarians, and consider the consumption of non-vegetarian food to be sinful, and something to be avoided (having such a faith is their legal right, and one cannot dispute this). Thus, in India, there are many restaurants and hotels that…

However, with all this convenience and speed of purchasing, there is a darker side that you need to be careful about. I will detail some of my…

During that time I gleaned that your headlines for the day were ‘#ShamedInAustralia’ and ‘Dhoni Defiant Even in Defeat.’ Yes baby, about time the arrogant cricketers got put in their place. How could they lose the World Cup Semi-Final and cause anguish to so many Indians? Utterly shameless. Disgusting.

News flash for the Government of India – in this age of the Internet, banning a video will only ensure that everybody and their mother, daughter or, oh god what a travesty, girl friend, will watch it. More on that later. The whole episode of the video, the initial outrage, a news channel promoting the video with its usual sensationalism, TV debates and the subsequent ‘action’ taken by the government of India reeks of so many things that are bothersome.
