  • And Then One Day: Naseeruddin Shah on his memoirs and life

    Sankalp Phartiyal
    26 Sep 2014 | 7:35 am
    By Sankalp Phartiyal It’s difficult to hold back your surprise when Naseeruddin Shah, one of India’s foremost art house actors, says the film industry doesn’t interest him greatly. In a career spanning almost four decades, Shah has worked with Dadasaheb Phalke Award-winning director Shyam Benegal and James Bond actor Sean Connery, won acclaim for his movie roles and continues to dabble in theatre. But Shah wasn’t exactly a child prodigy. His grades were the poorest in class and his teachers thought he would “find it difficult to amount even to a small bag of…
  • Movie Review: “Chaarfutiya Chhokare” is dull, incoherent melodrama

    By Anupriya Kumar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) In “Chaarfutiya Chhokare“, the principal of a countryside school is shown taking a bath on the school premises while classes are in session. Later, he says that the Taj Mahal was built by Mughal emperor Akbar. He is not one to spare the rod either, resorting to corporal punishment for disobedience. Those familiar with rural Bihar, the setting of Manish Harishankar’s directorial debut, would know scenes such as these are increasingly rare in real life but not as bizarre as they…

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar “Daawat-e-Ishq” is one of those infuriating films that seem to go on for ever, getting more monotonous by the minute. For a movie that is supposedly about food, there is surprisingly little of it on screen. Instead, director Habib Faisal chooses to populate his movie with asinine plotlines, a lead pair whose romance is stone-cold, and characters who are neither funny nor interesting. Gulrez aka Gullu is a feisty shoe salesgirl who dreams of studying fashion design in New York and marrying the perfect man with the perfect American accent. Her father has more…

  • What Exactly Is MVP? How Minimum? How Much Viable?

    Ashish Sinha
    29 Sep 2014 | 11:47 pm
    A lot many entrepreneurs and product managers look at MVP as ‘Minimum’ Viable Product – Minimum first and Viable later. That is, the focus, for most of the entrepreneur is on building Minimum product more than a viable product, in order to test their hypothesis. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy – you start with a hypothesis and in order to validate that, you end up creating validation points. So, the focus becomes more on minimum which sort of gives a ‘basic’ experience which you can quickly validate, vs. launching a viable product will take…

  • The Second Game of Dice

    23 Sep 2014 | 6:52 pm
    This is the 25th installment of my weekly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. The Mahabharata is an amazing piece of storytelling. It was written at least 2400 years ago and it still resonates today in India. One story that speaks to me strongly is of the time when Duryodhana and Shakuni invited Yudhishthira to a game of dice. Accepting an invitation to play dice with an opponent, using his dice, surely has negative expected value. (One version has it that the dice were made out of the bones of Shakuni’s father, whose spirit resided in the dice and did as he wished.

She didn’t draw me from the get go, like Hercule Poirot. Ah, Poirot! There’s so much more to love about him: consider his mustache, his little quirks—the crème de menthe before dinner, the hot chocolate, his referring to his brains as the “little grey cells”—Poirot is camp, and eccentric, and yet, there are allowances made for this.

    Lucy Kellaway, FT's management writer, suggests somewhat cheekly that the big daddy of strategic consulting may not be around 50 years from now. She comes to this conclusion after looking at a special issue of the McKinsey Quarterly meant to commemorate the journal's golden jubilee. The issue carries a piece of research that purports to look at broad trends that will shape the future: The first is technology. Its growth will be exponential and there will be “turbocharging advances in connectivity”. Second, growth in emerging markets will continue and a lot more big cities will spring up…
  • Hindi Chini Bye Bye?

    20 Sep 2014 | 10:05 pm
    The Chinese president came, saw but could not conquer. Much of the bonhomie that PM Modi exuded in Ahmedabad seemed to evaporate once the hard reality of the standoff on the borders began to sink in- and for the PM the timing must have been particularly galling.Xi Jinping was, no doubt, hoping that he would get India to open up to Chinese investment in a big way, providing China with a useful means of diversifying away from Japan and East Asia, without having to address the border issue. It didn't quite work out. There is talk of $20 bn of Chinese investment happening but there is reason to…
  • National Airlines: Air India has plenty of company

    18 Sep 2014 | 4:26 am
    Air India is not the only national airline being kept afloat by government money. There are plenty of others around the world, the Economist reports- and the ill-fated Malaysian Airlines is not the only one. Poland's national airline received $200 mn from the government. Italy's carrier, Alitalia, was bailed out by recently Etihad, the Gulf airline, taking a 49% stake. Indeed, national airlines that are doing well are exceptions:The thriving airlines of Singapore and Ethiopia, and the Gulf carriers, Etihad, Emirates and Qatar Airways, all benefited from government money but have been allowed…

    I make no secret of the fact that I believe Shri Narendra Modi, the prime minister of India, is an honest, intelligent, dedicated, sincere and diligent man. I admire him immensely for who he is and what he has accomplished over his many decades as a politician. The set P = {p | famous politician p is honest, intelligent, dedicated, sincere, diligent} is small but non-empty. For all I know, the set P is exhaustively enumerated as P = {Narendra Modi, Arun Shourie}. But at the very least, I am certain that {Narendra Modi, Arun Shourie} ⊂ P. I indulge myself in the frivolity of using…

    Well, what do you know! Amazing things are happening around the world. One of the more positive developments has been that of the Islamic State (formerly known as the ISIS) showing up and demonstrating to the world what “peace” means in the “Religion of Peace.(™)” They are the poster boys of Islam, arguing against the left-lib-tards (that’s the short form for “leftist liberal retards”) who keep on insisting that Islam is a religion of peace.

    It’s that time of the year once again — the time of Ganesha’s visit and therefore this annual post which is a tradition on this blog. He is invoked at the beginnings of all endeavors. I recently bought a Chromebox. What better than having Ganesh grant his protection to the little computer? Last time I was in India, I had picked up a few small brass Ganeshas. So I placed one of them on the computer. Here’s the Vighana Haran, the Defeater of Obstacles, ensuring that the computer works fine. He looks quite comfortable, don’t you think?

  • Whose money is it anyway?

    Atanu Dey
    5 Aug 2014 | 3:56 pm
    Milton Friedman used to elegantly distinguish between four ways of spending money. First, when you spend your own money on yourself, you are very careful to get the most benefit for your buck. After all, it is your money and you know what you want for yourself. Second, when you spend your own money on someone else. Here too you carefully economize to meet your objective but since you don’t know the other person’s needs as well as you do your own needs, your spending may not be as optimal for the other person. Third, you spend other people’s money on yourself. In this case,…

  • Online gambling poised for rapid growth

    Sidhartha
    9 Sep 2014 | 2:50 am
    Image by Robert Scoble  The rapid growth in the gaming industry in India and elsewhere in Asia has been predominantly fuelled by a combination of rising incomes, 3G penetration and the take-up of digital devices by a technology-hungry youth demographic. To date this pattern has been most conspicuous in the emergence of the Indian gaming industry which was – as reported on these pages – estimated to be worth in excess of INR 18 billion within the next three years. However, as the technologies become embedded, as older, late adopters start to enter the market, and as the early adopters…

    The online and mobile slots game  industry has seen tremendous growth in last few years. Despite a minor hiccup in 2009 when the global economy suffered, the Global Casinos and Online Gambling industry has fared well in the past five years. Strong growth will continue as more casinos open in China and other Asian countries. Established markets have reached maturity and have less room for revenue growth, new markets will open up and increase access to gaming activities. The Global Casinos and Online Gambling industry has a low level of market share concentration. In 2014, the top four players…
  • [Infographic] iPhone 6 Most Wanted Features: Surprising Expectations

    So what’s in store for future iPhones? We can get some clues from Apple patents registered with the U.S. Trademark and Office. Apple is developing an audio jack to double as a headphone jack, plus an audio transducer that doesn’t need a grille to emit sound. That means future iPhones can be totally enclosed or water-proofed. Another patent talks about combining motion analyzer, scenery analyzer, and lockout mechanism to detect if you’re driving and disable Messages Apps. With the increasing text-induced car accidents, expect this feature sooner than later. Yet another patent indicates…

    Over the past year, interest in wearable technology has skyrocketed. A recent Nielsen report suggests that about 36 million adult Americans currently own and use some form of wearable technology. This makes sense, as everyone I knew suddenly had an UP Band, Fitbit, Gear Watch or other smart device on their wrist last year. IDC predicts that more than 19 million wearable devices will be sold globally this year, three times the number that were sold last year. We saw Samsung go out of the gate early this year with their Galaxy Gear SmartWatches, and now we’re seeing almost all the other major…

  • The $74m Mars mission benefits India every bit as much as clean water

    29 Sep 2014 | 2:20 am
    Last week India sent a satellite into orbit around Mars,with a low-cost, nimble mission that has stunned the world. At $74m over three years, the cost was roughly one-ninth that of the latest (also successful) US mission, which took six years. And in reaching the red planet on its first attempt, India’s space agency succeeded where many other leading powers – including the US, Russia,China and Japan– failed. To reach Mars, Mangalyaan (or “Mars craft” in Hindi) had initially to execute a complex slingshot trajectory, swinging around the Earth several times to generate speed using the…

    7 Sep 2014 | 5:56 am
    Indians elected Narendra Modi to create masses of jobs, give good governance, and control inflation. It is too soon to tell if he will keep his three promises. The first hundred days indicate how he intends to pursue these three objectives. The verdict so far leaves us cautiously optimistic. Modi’s defining contribution to date is to dramatically improve execution at all levels of the government. The Congress carps about the lack of new ideas. But anyone can have ideas – only a few can implement them. Those frustrated by the lack of big-bang reforms do not realize that India’s great…

    In life, I believe that what makes you a better person is to be honest enough to alter your opinion when needed and have the courage to share your changed views with others. It does not demean you in anyway; on the contrary it makes you a better person. A few years ago, I would have bet my bottom dollar that I would never see the day where I voted for the one who is our Prime Minister, and yet I did. At that time it may have been thought that, for anyone whose heart beat for India and who carried  a legacy in the shape of her father's last words: Do not loose faith in India, could not…

    A photograph, from somewhere between Manali and Rohtang Pass. The road from Manali to Rohtang is where I have seen easily one of the most dramatic landscapes in all of Himalayas. Dhauladhar Mountains climb quickly after leaving Manali, making one of the steepest climbs that one can witness. I could spend months here photographing the landscapes. But the terrain comes with its challenges. The weather is unpredictable, often wet and foggy. Traffic jams bog the journey when the weather gets bad. Good photographs can be made only if one can remain patient, and willing to return day after day.

    As a photographer who enjoys shooting landscapes, I have often wished to live in higher latitudes and away from tropics. Tropical weather and light doesn’t yield well to landscape photography: it is often colourless, hazy and harsh. The window of good light is very small, often limited to a few minutes during sunrise and sunset hours. But when you enjoy doing something, you would rather work with what you have than spend time with wishful thinking. It was with this spirit that we–some landscape photographers from Bangalore–decided to head out a few weeks ago and explore the…

It’s a beautiful lake located in Lahaul & Spiti Region in the Himalayas. I made my fifth visit a few weeks ago. The first few images at this place came easy. When the sun is shining and the air is still, the lake reflects everything within the view. It assumes the blue of the sky, and the reflection is so perfect that you can’t see the lake’s waters in a photograph. Challenges,…

    The Startup Guy

  • Choose to be nice. Please

    Vijay Anand
    23 Sep 2014 | 1:30 am
    Starting up, is against the odds. The natural thing for a startup, is to die. Nature, contrary to populary belief, doesn’t by default nurture, but is aggressive and kills. If you want an instrospective view, look at yourself. Every single moment and with every breathe that we take, our cells are getting older, our bodies oxidising and heading towards the eventual death. That is the only certain thing – that we will all die. As if that overarching theme in life wasn’t enough, entrepreneurs take it upon themselves to put themselves in a fastlane where death, failure,…
  • The Familiar Starting Point.

    Vijay Anand
    5 Aug 2014 | 10:17 pm
    It’s perfectly fine for teams – and  a whole lot of them to start off with the same, and familar starting point. The key is to ensure you have an original path beyond that. That burden, is no one’s but that of the founding team. I imagine that a few centuries ago, before we learnt how to document things, or copy en masse, innovation and inventions were at the peak. Heck, its even fair to say that inventions and the spirit of it, is what drove the industrial revolution, and gave it, its steam (pun intended). I wonder, if some of this was possible because early ideas…
  • Sumo Wrestlers vs Soccer Players

    Vijay Anand
    4 Aug 2014 | 10:43 pm
    Think of your startup team as one unit. The Silicon valley plays the game of Sumo wrestling. There is one giant fellow on each side, trying to get the other one out of the court. its usually one or two engineers who are paid 100K annually who drive things.In most other markets, the rule to play would be like, Soccer, or Hockey – its not one player who is holding the cards, it is a team of 11 that is playing for your side. Everyone has a position, a role and their skills that puts them there. Teams that are driven by one or two rockstars, have issues to scale – the recent world cup…
  • A Better Way to Validate (Ideas)

    Vijay Anand
    28 May 2014 | 11:30 pm
    I usually get a lot of folks writing to me saying that they have an idea, and want to get my thoughts. I’m always happy to, but to be fair, I am not “validating” the idea – for better or worse, what is mostly happening is me giving my perspective from what I know and by seeing related ventures in that space. It is by no means a true reflection of whether the idea will succeed – Infact I start with the disclaimer that I could be totally wrong. However, if you do want true validation, here is your three step formula. Step 1: Talk to potential customers (after you…
  • Bootstrapping, not an excuse for being cheap

    Vijay Anand
    14 Apr 2014 | 12:18 am
    I witness the scenario on both sides of the table.  A startup provides a solution to a problem; solves it elegantly. And makes it seamless for its users. They use a few other products too – that solves some of their non-core functions elegantly. They grow out of its free usage, but they don’t pay. And they sit and break their heads, day in and day out as to why on earth,  many of its heavy users not converting. I too do wonder why. Karma, is a bitch. We don’t negotiate with the entity that provides the electricity, nor the ISP who provides the pipeline, nor the bank who…

    What happens when a child returns home scared of even more physical violence and abuse, when he/she faced the same in school? It’s not just a horrific scenario but the poignant reality of the world. According to WHO estimates, more than 80 to 95% of children suffer physical punishments in their household. We live in a world where physical violence has become rather the normative behaviour in order to ‘discipline’ or ‘govern’ children, but what it ends up doing is something which we almost never care to stop and think about. At an age where children should learn to appreciate their…

    By Mannat Tipnis: Very often Feminists, both men and women, are seen defending the supposed misconceptions surrounding Feminism. These range from feminists being bra burners, men haters and the nemesis of the familial structure. Feminism is based on the recognition of the fact that women occupy a relatively weaker position in a socially unjust society. The movement isn’t a polite request for rights and has never projected itself to be just this. It targets the inner, frightening truth, the fact that it is a politically destabilizing force, and if allowed to prosper, would change the…

    By Kabir Arora: Mr. Modi’s recent speech, which received a standing ovation from the Indian delegation in a largely empty United Nations General assembly, is a representation of our collective ignorance. The popularly elected Prime Minister hinted that yoga is a way to mitigate climate change. One is not sure whether he was ridiculing the threat of climate change or mocking the ancient science of Yoga. This is not the first time Mr. Modi has shown his ignorance about climate change. His past statements are well documented where he declared that climate is not changing, our lifestyle is.

    A lot many entrepreneurs and product managers look at MVP as ‘Minimum’ Viable Product – Minimum first and Viable later. That is, the focus, for most of the entrepreneur is on building Minimum product more than a viable product, in order to test their hypothesis. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy – you start with a hypothesis and in order to validate that, you end up creating validation points. So, the focus becomes more on minimum which sort of gives a ‘basic’ experience which you can quickly validate, vs. launching a viable product will take…

The small climb of Katraj is followed by a small downhill and a flat, until one crosses the backwaters of Veer Dam near Shirwal. After that one starts climbing a low gradient till the next climb up Khambatki ghat, a small descent and one turns off the highway toward Wai and starts the 10 km long Pasarni ghat climb to Panchgani.

    Actress Deepika Padukone posted her final word on the ‘cleavage row’ on Facebook last week, writing ‘for me, the topic ends here’ in a piece titled ‘My Point of View.’ Her opponent, however, is unwilling to let things rest. The leading daily that Deepika has squared off against has published a second post in its own defence accusing the actress of ‘hypocrisy.’ The tweet that started the row:: http://movies.ndtv.com/bollywood/deepika-padukone-dont-talk-about-women-empowerment-if-you-dont-respect-women-663736 In her Facebook post, Deepika stressed…

    Salman Khan was among the very few Bollywood actors who were invited for PM Modi’s swearing in ceremony at New Delhi. Now that our new PM is facing a lot of criticism within 100 days of the formation of his government, Salman feels that he deserves to get some more time to prove himself. “It has been just 100 days now; let’s give him some more time – everyone deserves it. He is working from morning to night along with his team. People don’t want to take responsibility here. I challenge everyone who is criticising him to first become a chairperson of their hosuing…

Showing concern about the dwindling importance of teaching profession in the eyes of youth, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that there is need to find out why the value of a teacher has lost its sheen and why students don’t want to be teachers when they grow up. 2.

  • What’s missing ?

    Shekhar Lele
    6 Sep 2014 | 11:23 am
    I have always lived in one of the biggest cities of the world and also in another city, one of the biggest in India. Off late, I have been associated with another city, a capital of a state and a fast growing one itself. Naturally after staying in two “different” types of cities of our country, comparison between the respective culture, outlook and lifestyle in general is inevitable, and here I ponder upon those very “gaps” perceived by me. Visually, Tier 2 cities don’t seem to be any different from, and appear to be just a zip version of their bigger…

Apart from the extreme extravaganza created by the aspirants, the principal difference between this time and preceding elections has been for whom any particular person has actually voted for. In the alphabetical order, the letter M comes before P but this time P has gained precedence over M, for one to decide which button to press on the EVM… Despite all the frenzied talk all around, any particular individual’s daily routine life may not change much irrespective of who…

    It is a common practice to sum up the events of a year about to wind up. In this post ,we will look at some of the things in a couple of fields which have undergone small but positive changes and some others which still continue to remain more or less the same, in their good, bad or ugly format. Politics:  David beats Goliath… Perhaps, the biggest surprise event of 2013 has been the rise of the Mango Man party in the country, in virtually no time. The country which had become used to the (in)efficiencies of the 2 grand old parties got another option and they seized it with both hands.

    The last 2 weeks have been quite busy for Indian sports. First, the master left the scene, (un)arguably leaving a permanent void in cricket. The ‘experts’ who were always busy advocating that the master had become too old to play anymore, suddenly found themselves with nothing much to say or write about. But, they must have heaved a sort of a sigh of relief when they got an opportunity to train their guns on the chess legend who had to recently surrender his title to a newbie. The biggest irony in India is that most of us actually got to know that Anand held the title of  world…

    In the recent Ashes series, the major point of talk is not about the teams but about the umpires and their follies. Many have tweeted their views as to how could the umpire miss the nick in Broad daylight, how could the hot spot camera miss the edge, etc. Unless the ICC reviews the DRS itself, these talks about the review system will continue to build up , and unfortunately without taking anyone to any logical conclusion. Do we really need DRS ? I vote in the affirmative. Cricket like tennis is a game where there are ‘pauses’ between the successive deliveries. DRS can fit in here,…

    ashish
    23 Sep 2014 | 12:43 pm
    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…

    In my younger days, there were only small neighborhood stores that you would go to get whatever provisions you wanted and there were really not too many different brands either. Over the years however, more and more variety of products started coming into the market accompanied by larger stores, leading up to today’s hypermarkets where you can get everything you need for your household and where you can easily spend thousands of Rupees. 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…

    I have been a long time customer of Dr. Batra for hair care treatment (long history of dandruff and also fear of an impending decline in the covering on top of the head). The promise was that they would provide me treatment that would lead to a decline in fair fall rates and also eliminate the dandruff, depending on my taking the treatment properly. Further, I had to do other things such as doing some head stimulation (using finger tips to stimulate the scalp), eating more of soya based stuff, eating cod liver capsules and consuming more green tea on a regular basis. Some of these I did,…

    When people buy a ticket, they expect that the service will take from their origin to the desired destination. In fact, they deserve a certain amount of service, including the right to know whether the flight or train is one time, whether there is anything that could cause delays or otherwise impede the service, and they expect the Government and regulators to make sure that airlines are doing this. However, the recent (past many months) events at Kingfisher Airlines have caused a great amount of distress to passengers, with the Government not really doing anything about it (except for…

    Technology changes real fast nowadays, with one direct impact being that whatever you buy will soon have an updated version available soon, and which will cause the version you have with you being no longer the hot new version available in the market. Invariably, soon after your purchase, you will find that what you purchased has been surpassed with more features, and the version you hold does not cost as much as you would have liked. One example of that was when I had gone for a 3 month visit to the US, and purchased a camera for around $560. By the time it was time for me to come back, that…

    The nine nights of the Devi, a time to dive deep and experience the presence of the all pervading, scintillating energy. A time to wake up to this awe-inspiring presence. For those who find the journey within difficult, the ancient rishis had a simple solution; to find her presence in the very mundane. The Devi they said can be found in One’s intelligence, memory and reflection. In hunger, thirst and sleep too. So too in activity, power and riches; In faith and very much in the doubt  is her  unmistakable  presence. If you have experienced compassion, forgiveness, peace and…

Chanted and heard by millions and millions in the timeless, recurring cycles of manifestation and dissolution of the yugas.

There was a lot of anticipation and the PM did not disappoint, this was an extempore speech of over an hour without any notes or teleprompter etc. Spoken straight from the heart.  After hearing platitudes for several years, it was refreshing to see and hear a PM who understands the aspirations and needs of the people of this country and talks about meeting those needs systematically through a leadership model that is contrarian to what we have experienced in the last 68 years.

It was so refreshing to see someone showing respect to our culture and trying to instill a sense of national pride among Indians who suffer from a major colonial hangover.

I had two reasons: From the early era of web, website owners have struggled with the challenge of keeping web-visitors engaged and an even bigger challenge of attracting them to visit again. Year after year, the answer for these challenges has been having interesting content on the site. To sell anything on the web, you need to master content marketing.

  • Top Ten Articles Read In February

    26 Feb 2014 | 4:00 pm
    February was a month for consumption. I read a lot. I don't know how many blog-posts I read but I have stored about 50 blog-posts in Evernote library. When I go through my stored articles library in Evernote, this number is high for a single month. These blog-posts may not have been written in this month, since I queue reading to Pocket. In addition to these articles, I also managed to read two books. The first one is 'Future Shock' by Alvin Toffler and second one is 'Time Management 2.0: 15 Secrets of a Self-Made Millionaire for Getting Things Done' by H. Reardon, C.

  • Book Review : And Death Came Calling by Mukul Deva

    AND DEATH CAME CALLING...Mukul Deva is known for his edge of the seat thrillers on the topic of terrorism and/or Army-based thrillers, as shown in his books like Laskhar, Salim Must Die and RIP among others. Thus the expectation is that a Mukul Deva Book should be based on a similar theme; especially since we are used to Western Authors writing on similar themes for the entire career. Well, forget that expectation; the current book is nothing like any of his other books. With this awesome work, Mr Deva has established his versatility and command over an entirely different type of book;…
