    Its a worst nightmare come true for a marketer, the brand getting into a health controversy. India's favorite noodles brand Maggi landed in its biggest challenge of its life when the health officials from Uttarpradesh FDA asked the company to recall one batch of noodles of a suspected high levels monosodium glutamate (MSG).The news spread like a wildfire both in social media and mainstream media . The company sprang into action by denying any addition of MSG to its noodles however with a caveat that glutamate may have occurred naturally to noodles because of some ingredients.

  • One-year itch: Modi shift to political centre angers both right and left

    Gurcharan Das
    17 May 2015 | 12:15 am
    Politics is a short game while economics is a long one. Both tend to converge in the end but in the interim they pull in opposite directions. Because of this mismatch, most of the people are invariably disappointed. This is Prime Minister Modi’s problem on the first anniversary of his government. Although his record is reasonably good, he has neither met the extraordinary expectations of his supporters nor followed through on key priorities. Surprisingly, he has turned out to be a pragmatic gradualist — by shifting towards the political centre, he has left all his constituencies…

    Aditya Kalra
    27 May 2015 | 4:07 pm
    By Aditya Kalra Advet Bhambhani, the chief executive of Dubai-based ABV Group plans to open luxury hospitals that would resemble hotels, offer personalised care and transport patients from place to place in Rolls Royce cars. He said he wants to redefine health care for India’s rich and medical tourists, and has nearly $80 million in investments to pull it off. Bhambhani, who was born in India, said his new luxury hospitals will have 50 suites and no shared rooms. Patients will get airport-to-airport services and food made to order.

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    22 May 2015 | 4:46 am
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) Director Aanand L Rai seems to believe in the adage “Well begun is half done.” With both “Tanu Weds Manu” (2011) and its sequel, Rai starts with a great idea, some sparkling dialogue and interesting characters. But what you get in “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” is the cinematic equivalent of a car wreck. The first film ended with the unlikely union of Manoj Sharma (R Madhavan) and Tanuja (Kangana Ranaut). Four years later, Manu still has the personality of a…
  • ‘Bombay Velvet’ debacle adds to Bollywood woes

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    21 May 2015 | 10:44 pm
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar It’s being called the biggest debacle in recent Bollywood history. Anurag Kashyap’s “Bombay Velvet” could not have come at a worse time for an industry that has been struggling to find some magic at the cinemas for more than a year. The film, made on a stated budget of 800 million rupees ($12.5 million), made around 160 million rupees ($2.5 million) in its opening weekend, a dismal figure for a film that had A-list stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar and Anushka Sharma in lead roles and a huge publicity campaign behind it. “The losses on the film will be of…

The government recently cut funding for programmes such as drinking water and welfare for women and children, saying that states can make better decisions on what to spend in their own backyards. One of Modi’s opponents is his cabinet minister Maneka Gandhi, India’s women and child development minister. She has written two letters to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to complain about the…

    By David Lalmalsawma Author Malsawmi Jacob was in high school when the independence movement in the future state of Mizoram began in 1966. Her father, an army subedar stationed in the hill town of Shillong, now in the state of Meghalaya, predicted at the time that ordinary people would bear the brunt of an armed conflict. He was right. The two-decade-long revolt by the Mizo National Front (MNF) would lead the Indian government to use war planes against its own citizens for the first time. A “grouping” policy was introduced where villages were burned and civilians herded to guarded centres…

    Changes in the various perceptions of beauty started in the latter part of the 20th century when women started to advocate for acceptance of all kinds of body shapes, skin colours etc. Of these, the major issue was that of criticisms levied against “fat-shaming” by women in an attempt to encourage acceptance and self-confidence for large women. Women all over the world began to disapprove of the ‘ideal’ notions as constructed by the society and started to encourage the newly-found conception of “real women have curves”.This notion that women with curves are real and women who are…

This go-to snack has been the ultimate snack for people coming from all ages, sizes and shapes. Saddening and heart-breaking at it may be, unfortunately the company that produces such magic in little yellow packets is now under the radar for feeding us enormous amounts of MSG and lead.MSG, that is, Monosodium glutamate (and not Messenger of God) if consumed in huge amounts can give you an upset stomach, nausea, and increase the…

She took a screenshot of the message sent to her by the pervert, and that went viral. Her action has sent a message for women across India not to sit back meekly in the face of harassment of any kind, and ignore people like these.Moreover, she applauded by Special Commissioner in Delhi Traffic Police, who asked her to file an FIR. Her FIR too, much like her post, went viral, garnering more than 3000 shares…

None of you need to worry about me, we have survived so much, have been standing 22 years in the face of adversity and rejection,” says Anurag Kashyap on the Bombay Velvet debacle.Layered sound design, lush and malodorous visual texture, and intricate period detailing are probably the only saving graces for Bombay Velvet.

    The Modi government has completed a year in office, and frankly speaking never have I witnessed such hysteria over a government anniversary. That may partly be a result of the Modi government’s obsession with grabbing headlines, as his party’s veteran leader Arun Shourie very eloquently put. There has been rampant celebration and anticipation about the same, which, too, may be understandable given the BJP’s limited stints at the centre. However, there was once incident of celebration that stood out both in its temerity and impertinence.Shiv Sena Hindustan went about celebrating One Year…

There are only two kinds of businesses, he says; the perfectly competitive ones and the monopolies. No, there is no such thing as “in between”. If this came as a bit of a shocker, then it’s because people constantly lie about the kind of businesses they’re in, explains Peter.

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.

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”.

    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…

The next time you are sitting at a poker table, faced with a big decision for a lot of money, take a few seconds off and think of Steve Jobs, naked after his morning shower, walking to his closet to pick out the clothes he will wear for the day. Does he tank over what to wear? No, he doesn’t. He just takes out a black turtleneck, a pair of jeans, and that’s his outfit for the day. Through the last years of his life, in fact, that was his outfit for every day. Jobs wasn’t lazy or…

Instead, he held a whip in his right hand, which extended out of his window, and he was whipping a couple of bullocks tied to the front of the car. The engine was off; the bullocks were pulling the car. Now, okay, this is perhaps a bit too weird even for India, and I confess that I didn’t see…

    Great Indian Mutiny

  • Huntsville Gets a New Financial Planning Company

    Markus Burns
    5 May 2015 | 10:14 am
    Alabama has a new financial planning company today, located in Huntsville. It was launched by Bridgeworth, LLC on 400 Meridian St, Suite 200. If you drive by, you’ll notice it’s quite a nice building, and will surely bring in more customers to the Huntsville area. The office is run by Brian Hinson, and his partner Bob Johnson. As far as other staff goes, they also have Jonathan Hornsby as an adviser. In the past, Brian and his partners were on board with First Financial Group, another financial planning company. After a while, they changed forces and went with Bridgeworth, and are…
  • Dow Jones, S&P Have Great Day in The Market

    Markus Burns
    5 May 2015 | 10:04 am
    After a month filled with heavy factory orders, overseas stimulus, and more, we’ve seen another day where the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), had a significant rise.  In the early hours we saw the stock raise up to almost 3 digit gains, but it lowered back down in the afternoon. All in all, it ended up a bit higher than it had the day before, along with the S&P. Throughout the entire day the DJIA was in the green. After a few spikes through the day, as we’ve come to see in the past few days, it closed at over 40 points above where it was then the day started. 21…
  • Do You Have Bad Credit ? Another Option is Here

    5 May 2015 | 9:57 am
    Getting a credit card is immensely difficult if you have bad credit. You have huge limits on your card, or can’t get one at all. Not all of us deserve the bad credit we have, and still want a credit card for things like shopping or traveling. There are options for those of us who have bad credit, however. We can get prepaid cards, or secured cards. Which card do you want though? There are a lot of different things with each card, so we have the different perks of each card below.

  • Online course students more likely to fail, says new research

    4 May 2015 | 9:45 pm
    Community college students are more likely to to fail online courses than traditionally-taught, face-to-face courses, a new study out of California has revealed. This study, carried out by researchers at the University of California-Davis, found that California community college students were 11 percent less likely to finish and pass an online course than students who took the course in person. This is not the first suggestion that such a relationship between digital learning and academic performance exists. The results underscore the findings of a similar study in Washington two years ago,…
  • Payday loans are being targeted by the State lawmakers

    4 May 2015 | 9:43 pm
    Like every other person who struggles financially, Janice Rivera figured that she and her husband would be able to repay a loan of $1,500 two years ago, stating that “The amount repaid would go to the principal because the auto-title company was like a regular bank” after she borrowed the money from an auto-title lender. Rivera noticed that after paying more than $2000 towards the loan she still had to repay $1500. The couple were able to pay off the loan last month, but this experience made them loathe borrowing money even more. The problem here is the state, Texas. Every two years,…

    Compulsive Confessions

  • Kids these days

    Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan
    25 May 2015 | 5:32 am
    There’s a little kid who seems to live on the stairwell of my apartments. He’s not the only little kid; across from me is a four-year-old and below me, in the house where his mother is employed, are two others. But this little kid is unique because unlike the others, who occasionally nod at me and say hello before being ushered indoors by their parents, this kid will ring my bell a lot and when I open it, he’ll look at me with big hopeful eyes and say, “Didi can I get you anything from the market?”It gets irritating, especially when he wakes you up from a sound nap, or when you were…
  • Some thoughts on Salman Khan, drunk driving & rich people

    Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan
    11 May 2015 | 11:28 pm
    Drunk driving in India is a peculiar thing. For one thing, it usually happens to the rich: it’s someone flush with daddy’s cash taking their new toy out for a spin, or someone deciding that that getting home in five minutes is more important than following traffic rules. I’m not speaking of the truck drivers who take drugs along the way to keep themselves awake. That’s a different kind of under the influence altogether. But as far as I can tell, if you crash your car because you’ve had one too many shots, you’re usually rich and have been brought up in a life without…

    I was with a gay friend—this was before the whole 377-debate, and while gay-ness was not “illegal”, a lot of people still didn’t come out—and we met another couple, also gay. One of the men in the couple took a liking to me, and spent the rest of the evening telling me his secrets over wine. One of them was: “I can never tell my parents I’m gay, so I’m getting married.” This was both shocking and saddening to me, but as the years went by, and I met more people, both openly gay and not, I heard similar stories over and over again. I hesitate to pass the blame on to anyone,…

    Its a worst nightmare come true for a marketer, the brand getting into a health controversy.

    Cadbury Perk is a confused brand. Perk came into limelight with an epic fight between KitKat and Perk. Then both these brands went to two trajectories. While KitKat was able to find a direction in terms of positioning , Perk was totally a confused brand. Nestle then launched Munch to fight Perk. Perk kept on experimenting with advertising themes and positioning and still has not found its mojo. Really I miss the magic of the launch campaigns of Perk . From this classic ad, the brand went to meaningless campaigns and later somewhat settled into its glucose energy focus. While KitKat…

    The Big Picture

  • Is it wise to allow a tax deduction on interest?

    27 May 2015 | 2:37 am
    The Economist thinks it's not. It calls tax deduction allowed to interest payments "the great distortion". It estimates tax revenue forgone on this at 3% of GDP in Euope and 5% of GDP in the US. But this is not the only damage it causes, the journal says. The bigger problem is that it gets individuals and companies to build up leverage, and this renders economies fragile- as happened in the sub-prime crisis.What do we make of these arguments? Well, the Economist's arguments haven't really been couched in precise terms. There are two components to the question. The first is: should interest be…
  • Shining shoes can be more satisfying than being a banker

I’m not trying to impress anyone". The next good thing about the work, he said, was the satisfaction in the job itself. You take a pair of dull shoes and eight minutes later they are sparkling.Third, and possibly most important of all, is that shoe shining, in marked contrast to banking, gives its customers pleasure.  Fourth, the chat is nice.

Sounds incredible but Piku pulls it off. Amitabh Bachchan's constipation problem is only a means for exploring relationships- between an old man and his only daughter, the daughter and the people who make up her daily life, and the Bachhan-Deepika duo and their extended family.Deepika is thoroughly modern in every way but, when it comes to her widower father, she cannot shake off her deep-rooted sense of…
  • Land Acquisition Bill amendment:NDA's folly

    22 May 2015 | 4:05 am
    The Modi government has headed off a confrontation over the Land Ordinance by referring to a select committee. That's timely and appropriate. The amendments should not have been a priority for the government at all. By making land acquisition a prestige issue, the government has come across as anti-farmer and anti-poor, as more than one opinion survey carried out on the government's first anniversary shows.There's no truth to the contention that delays in acquisition are a big factor in projects being stalled. The Economic Survey has highlighted this. It's strange that the media has not…

It has been the greed of those who demand and secure rewards for failure in far too many of our large corporations.That's a quote from the head of UK's Institute of Directors in an article in the FT. Do people at the top need variable pay? Does variable pay have to be in the form of shares or stock options or can CEOs be paid simply in cash?

    Atanu Dey
    28 May 2015 | 4:24 pm
    Such is the current state of public debate and understanding that anyone who is against or even questions the presumed desirability of what is known as “social justice” is axiomatically equated with being a monster lacking basic human morality and compassion. Friedrich Hayek (1899 – 1992), one may say, was one such monster. He began by trying to make as good a case in support of the ideal of ‘social justice’ as he could but realized that the concept was meaningless. “I have now become convinced, however, that the people who habitually employ the phrase…

I have met many of them and have been uniformly underwhelmed by their understanding of the subject that they are charged with governing. Here’s an example. Most of us get by with using the words “power” and “energy” interchangeably in everyday speech. But I have met poorly educated engineers (around 80 percent of Indian engineers) who couldn’t precisely distinguish the two. They are anything but interchangeable. Although I cannot be sure, I am willing to bet that the…

    Atanu Dey

    Justice as Individual Fairness Any conception of justice is about the relationship between the members of a society living in cooperative arrangements for the benefit of all members. For any society that is presumed to consist of free and equal persons, the necessary conditions for ensuring justice are equal personal and political liberties, and equal opportunities. Equality before the law is fair. That is, justice is about fairness, as the great political theorist John Rawls argued. He conceives of society “as a fair system of cooperation over time, from one generation to the…

And, in Ranchos de Taos is the San Francisco de Asissi Mission Church, a historic church built by Spanish missionaries between between 1772 and 1816.In spring, the community gets together to add a new layer of adobe —a mixture of mud and straw — on the outer facade to…

    Politics is a short game while economics is a long one. Both tend to converge in the end but in the interim they pull in opposite directions. Because of this mismatch, most of the people are invariably disappointed. This is Prime Minister Modi’s problem on the first anniversary of his government. Although his record is reasonably good, he has neither met the extraordinary expectations of his supporters nor followed through on key priorities. Surprisingly, he has turned out to be a pragmatic gradualist — by shifting towards the political centre, he has left all his constituencies…

    19 Apr 2015 | 12:43 am
    Once upon a time we used to proudly call Indian Railways the ‘nation’s lifeline’. Today, we are embarrassed by it. Every Indian had an impossibly romantic railway memory. Today these memories have faded as successive politicians have played havoc with a grand old institution. The root problem is that railways is a state monopoly, starved by politics of investment and technology, and prevented by a pernicious departmental structure from becoming a modern, vibrant enterprise. As a result, it is hard to get a ticket as capacity is short; service is shoddy, callous and unsafe, despite the…
  • Land agitators forget even a farmer’s son needs a job

    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. Can Modi reverse this unhappy trend and usher in a genuine industrial…

    Leonard Mlodinov has an op-ed in NYTimes arguing against the myth that science is just a series of flashes of intuitive insights that just hit people by accident. Two thousand years ago, Aristotle’s “Physics” was a wide-ranging set of theories that were easy to state and understand. But his ideas were almost completely wrong. Newton’s “Principia” ushered in the age of modern science, but remains one of the most impenetrable books ever written. There is a reason: The truths of nature are subtle, and require deep and careful thought. Over the past few centuries we have invested that…

And yet our Government has 'tweaked' the child labour law and now children under 14 can 'work' in family enterprises and the entertainment industry! To give itself good conscience the said Government proffers some weak caveats: provided the work is not hazardous; provided it is after school etc. I wonder what made these amendment necessary. Child labour of any kind is wrong and exploitative and a law such as this one is open to all kind of misinterpretations. Actually it simply…

When we adopted this project, the first thing that came to mind was to try and level the floor by cementing it. It seemed reasonable. Ah Ha! But that is not the reality. We were quickly informed that getting even a brick in this place was…

    I was taken aback this morning when I opened my mailbox to see a mail with the subject being: child labour. Imagine my absolute horror when I opened it and saw a petition to ask the Government to drop a proposed amendment to the child labour laws that would allow children below 14 to work in what they call 'family enterprises'! It took me some time to process what I was seeing. I then searched the net to find out more and fell on an article very aptly titled: The Modi Government Is About to Make Child Labour Legal Again, And Has a Horrifying Reason To Justify It. I must confess that the…

     If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice wrote the German Mystic Meister Eckhart. It is almost frightening to see how easily we 'rush' to pray when faced with adversity often not quite knowing what to pray for and ask for the first thing that comes to our mind  guided by our hearts and not our reason, and though I am the one who has always propounded the importance of looking with your heart, I have learnt the hard way that when 'seeking' you must let the heart take a back seat and bring out reason. I remember praying hard for my…

  • Amazing Dev Diwali Celebrations in Varanasi.

    Arun Bhat
    25 May 2015 | 9:57 pm
    For the uninitiated, Dev Diwali is a festival celebrated a fortnight after Deepavali, on the Karthika Poornima day. On this day, Varanasi’s famed ghats leading to the river take a different colour. An entire three-kilometer stretch is lit with lamps while fireworks decorate the sky. It’s a spectacle that one should see to believe!

    Walking the long wooded path towards Beng Melea Temple, I heard a mild sound of music coming through the air. It grew on me as I closed-in to its source – a bunch of uniformed men on a raised platform not far from the temple entrance. From a distance, something appeared to be wrong. As I got nearer, I realized that some of them were missing an arm, some were blind and some wore artificial limbs. A sign nearby informed that they were the victims of Cambodia’s landmine problem, making a living playing music for the tourists visiting the temples. There were music CDs available…

    Sheep come home. At Langza Village in Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh, located in a far far place at an altitude of 14,000 deep in the mountains. As the sun sets and it is nearly dark, the sheep that have gone grazing during the day return home. So do the cows and donkeys. They are not the only animals of the village. Horses do not come home, and are fetched when needed. The yaks never come – they stay grazing in the highlands and are milked and managed from wherever they are. Animals have played in important role in the culture of these mountains. Centuries ago, when there was little…

    It takes a lot to dazzle a seasoned traveller. After years of travelling to extraordinary places with unsurpassed beauty–rocky seashores, highland meadows, snowy slopes, river valleys, abloom wilderness, pristine lakes and silent woods–a jadedness slips into the once curious explorer. Yet, the traveller often continues to travel and see places as the addiction can’t be curtailed. And much like any other addiction, the high isn’t experienced anymore even when it is impossible to stop. There are times in my journeys where I have felt something amiss. Luxury never…

    19 May 2015 | 9:49 pm
    This is an old photograph of a bloom of Neelakurinji flowers (Strobilanthes kunthiana), made in 2006 at the end of monsoons. These flowers bloom only once in twelve years. But when they do, you see them in such large numbers in the hills that you can’t move an inch without stepping on them. When I heard about the bloom in October 2006, I drove to Chikmagalur and spent three days wandering the hills, photographing the flowers and the landscape. This image was one of them.

    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…

    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.

    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…

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.

    The landscape around the lake is astounding but heartening simultaneously. Hundreds of very well sculpted rocks, some of which still in better shapes were lying scattered at the lake side and around. A huge round sculpted “Amalaka” (the stone disk/rim fitted atop a temple) is an eye catcher, depicting pathetic demise of its glorious past. The invaluable chiselled rocks and the sculpted remains of a temple were once an integral part of an exotic masterpiece, perhaps as good as the marvels in Khajuraho. Can it be restored now! Sadly, no or not to its original shape. Descending through the…

There are only two kinds of businesses, he says; the perfectly competitive ones and the monopolies. No, there is no such thing as “in between”.

    There are known times for interactions with companies and customers.

You have any complaint with them, you call them up between these times; there are still not many organizations who provide 24 X 7 support. The reverse is certainly true.

    22 May 2015 | 4:55 am
    Recently, the Indian airline regulator (DGCA) has made it possible for airlines to charge an increasing amount for different services. As a result, airlines can charge for the seating of different seat positions (whether it be the aisle or window seats). This has been done to an extent that if a family travels together, they would have to ensure that they book seats together, since that is not confirmed when they actually show up at the check-in point. It has been argued that these charges allow the airlines to make some money to shore up their profits when they are providing lower cost…

Earlier, it was a simple assumption that services dealt with by municipal authorities were provided by the Government and hence could not be challenged, did not come under the rights of citizens to challenge, and only the Government could control and regulate them. So, roads could be problematic, repairs could take forever, garbage collection could be a mess, roads once laid down could get spoiled in a few months after…

It was a dream I had seen, to get published, to see my name on book shelves, to be able to tell a story I wanted to share, to reach out to the world and, ahem, to be famous. It didn’t take much time to realise that breaking into the hallowed ranks of published authors is not easy in a competitive industry where the top publishers get hundreds of manuscripts a month and getting noticed in that big pile might just be a matter of luck. Luckily I got signed up by one of the major publishing houses. Chicken as I was, I signed on the dotted…

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.

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.

Because we Indians call friends by their first names. Formalities are for strangers, not for people we love with our hearts. So you came to India. We turned out all of our fancy crockery.
