    1…2…3…4G!!!! 3G and 4G are the buzzwords in the telecom industry. Every cellular service provider wants to market their “G” handsets.  But what are the differences in each of these? G stands for Generation and thus 3G and 4G are third and fourth generation languages respectively. They are a certain ways in which mobile devices are built to provide fastest possible services. 3G is digital communication with a better speed than 2G and has set industry standards whereas 4G is a step ahead of 3G and facilitating services multiple times better than in 3G. In other words 4G is equal to…

We had one descend on us yesterday to save the dreams and morrows of our little ones and ensure that they remain safe. Every morning, 35 children from the most deprived homes wait for our three wheeler to arrive and ferry them to project why. They remain there till 4 pm when they are ferried back to their homes. For a few hours they regain their right to be children. They laugh, sing, learn, play. They do what…

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    28 Nov 2014 | 1:27 am
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters)  Rensil D’Silva’s “Ungli”, about a gang of vigilantes who set out to right the wrongs in a rotting system, seems to take off from where “Rang De Basanti” (a film he co-wrote) ended. Young, angry and frustrated, four friends form a secret organisation that aims to get rid of every single pet peeve that the Indian urban middle class has – from corrupt government officials to errant rickshaw drivers and bribe-seeking traffic policemen.

A satirical look at contemporary India and its problems such as class divide, poverty and unwieldy coalition politics, the film is built upon a promising idea, but its lack of depth and…

    By Ankush Arora In the 1960s, historian Geeti Sen visited Indian artist Jamini Roy’s workshop in what was then Calcutta to buy a painting for her father. Although she eventually picked up a Gopal Ghose, what struck her most about Roy was his accessibility. “He said, ‘Do you want to buy a painting for 100 rupees or 300 rupees or 700 rupees?’ So I looked at him and I said ‘That’s very interesting’. You first tell the artist how much you want to pay and then he would find the right kind of pictures for you,” said Sen, who was fresh out of college then. “So this also answers the…

    This is the 30th installment of my fortnightly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. One of the most important skills for a professional poker player, it is often said, is knowing when to get up. When exactly should we quit a session? Should we have a stop loss? Should we get up as soon as we reach a pre-decided profit? Should we play X number of hours, no more, no less? What are the factors that determine how long we sit at a particular table? The rational answer to this is clear. We should continue in a game as long as it is +ev to do so, and get up as soon as we feel we’re…

    This is the 29th installment of my fortnightly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. One of my favourite stories about chess has a lesson in it for poker players. A few decades ago, the great Aron Nimzowitsch was playing in a chess tournament when his opponent took out a cigarette case and placed it on the table in front of him. Nimzowitsch, who couldn’t stand cigarette smoke, called the tournament director to complain. ‘He has not lit a cigarette and there is no smoke,’ said the TD. ‘So your complaint is noted, but it is not valid.’ ‘I…

    This is the 28th installment of my fortnightly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. Poker at its heart is mathematical, I often argue, and everything else is secondary. You put your opponent on a range, calculate your pot equity against that range, estimate fold equity and then make the most profitable decision. But the math will get you nowhere if you input the wrong values. You first have to put your opponent on the correct range. And you have to accurately estimate your fold equity against him. To do this, you need to get inside his head, you need psychology. Although…

This great assumption that our Judges or our Armed forces at times were “not” Indians is mainly a creation of the media which has made us think of them like super solution providers who are not like the rest of the Indians. Is it possible that people brought up in the same society, with same morals and with same vision be different “Indians”? Some people thought the SC Judges were different Indians…Indians from Mars maybe.It is also possible that…

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.

I do some writing for them, mostly top ten lists and so on, and they had suggested I do one on a male bestie to an accidental boyfriend.

The brand which is available in other parts of the world is now launched in India with much fanfare.What is unusual and interesting about the new product is the color of the toothbrush itself.

    This post is inspired by  my learned Twitter friend @vijaysankaran when he queried about my opinion about the brand refresh by Raymond. I was more familiar with Re-branding and not refresh which lead to more learning about this term. Brand refresh is a term that signifies slight modification of the brand ( or brand elements). Radical modification or change of brand elements implies re-branding. Refreshing of brand usually happens under following conditions The brand is perceived to be old.Brand is trying to appeal to a new segment , for example younger crowd.When…

    Although the reports of Raymond entering into the readymade segment was there since 2007, I feel the brand has only now fully launched itself into this category. The " Complete Man" now has become readymade !The Indian men's wear market is around Rs 97000 crore and the formal menswear market is estimated to be around Rs 15000 crore ( Source TOI) . Raymond has brands like Park Avenue, Parx, Color Plus and Notting Hill in the segment.The addition of Raymond will further strengthen the company's portfolio but at the same time would cannibalize the other brands like Park Avenue.

  • Wanna boost the economy? Go for infrastructure spend

    28 Nov 2014 | 2:56 am
    The IMF is now telling us that public spending on infrastructure can provide a great stimulus to the economy- and in the developed world as much as the developing world. Larry Summers comments on the IMF findings:Consider a hypothetical investment in a new highway financed entirely with debt. Assume – counterfactually and conservatively – that the process of building the highway provides no stimulative benefit. Further assume that the investment earns only a 6 per cent real return, also a very conservative assumption given widely accepted estimates of the benefits of public…
  • How should companies and their bosses deal with social media?

    27 Nov 2014 | 3:25 am
    Microsoft boss Satya Nadella learnt recentlythat just one faux pas can cause serious damage. His comment on women counting on karma to take care of their pay raise raised an enormous storm on the social media that only just settled after he apologised.Of course, it's important for companies and their bosses to be careful. But slip-ups on the part of bosses is just one hazard that companies face in the social media. They have to face damaging disclosures, strong criticism and lethal photographs. Schumpeter points out that while anti-corporate types have made the most of social media, companies…
  • B-schools: the dethroning of the financial sector

    10 Nov 2014 | 3:31 am
    Financial firms, such as banks and investment banks, are out; consulting dominates and high-tech firms are in. This trend, which started post the financial crisis of 2007, now stands confirmed, going by two reports, one in the Economist and another in the FT.  Mr Lewis charted the ascent into investment banking of the most talented graduates in the 1980s, a situation that still held true as the financial crisis struck in 2007. Then, 44% of Harvard’s MBAs landed a job in finance; 12% became investment bankers. Yet in the class of 2013 only 27% chose finance and a meagre 5% became…
  • A contrarian view on Sachin Tendular

    6 Nov 2014 | 10:12 pm
    An Australian commentator launches a scathing attack on Sachin Tendular following the publication of his memoirs recently. (I must thank Rediff.com for the pointer). He writes:With a sweet, handsome face and smile that would melt a concrete slab, he always looked more lamb than lion as a man despite his great batting feats.Align that to his boyish, high-pitched voice that always sounded so inoffensive and the fact that he barely expressed a strong opinion about any cricket matter in his 25-year career you might have Sachin neatly categorised as the choir boy who wandered on to a cricket field…
  • MNREGA must be reformed, not scrapped.

    5 Nov 2014 | 3:40 am
    The government wants to limit MNREGA to the 200 most backward districts; Bhagwati and Panagariya suggest that, perhaps, such schemes are best scrapped. The more sensible view, which Mihir Shah puts forward, is that MNREGA needs to be reformed and made more effective. Bhagwati and Panagariya bring up the familiar argument about leakages and corruption in government schemes. They suggest that Rs 50 reaches the worker in wages out of an estimated Rs 250 of expenditure incurred by the government. Are we not better off, they say, in simply giving Rs 50 to the poor by way of cash transfers?There…

    Atanu Dey On India's Development

  • Nov 14th as the “Day of Shame and Lamentations for India.”

    Atanu Dey
    14 Nov 2014 | 9:14 am
    Why Indians celebrate Children’s Day on Nov 14th is a bit of a mystery to me. Of course I know that Jawaharlal Nehru, the father of the Nehru-Gandhi political dynasty was born on Nov 14th. Why would anyone consider him to be significant for Indian children is the mysterious part. If the facts be considered, Indians should observe Children’s Day on some other day than a day that is somehow related to Nehru. For two very pertinent reasons. First, contrary to the government brainwashing, Nehru wasn’t particularly fond of children. He was, according to some reliable sources,…

    Atanu Dey

    George Orwell claimed, “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” By that measure, a commitment to telling the truth as one sees it must make one a bit of a revolutionary. Here I continue with my argument that the Indian constitution is the fountainhead of all of India’s troubles. Unless and until it is replaced, India will continue to languish at the bottom of the heap. That claim predictably makes people uncomfortable. In this series I aim to support argue for its truth. (Here is the first part.) In this part, I examine the importance…
  • Shubho Bijoya Greetings

    Atanu Dey
    3 Oct 2014 | 7:26 pm
    For Bengalis, the five day long worship of Ma Durga is simply pujo. This is the time when Ma Durga comes for a visit to her maternal home. The festival culminates on Bijoy Dashimi with the protima (the idol) given a visarjan (ceremonial immersion in a river or a lake). Then it is time for people to greet each other with “Shubho Bijoya.” The important thing is that you wish people after the visarjan is over. This gets complicated in a world in which people live in different time zones. In India, visarjan is already over and they are wishing Shubho Bijoya but over here California we…

  • Can our best salesman sell us the free market?

    2 Nov 2014 | 2:56 am
    Too many Indians still believe that the market makes “the rich richer and the poor poorer” and leads to corruption and crony capitalism. This is false, of course. Despite the market having generated broad-spread prosperity over two decades — lifting 250 million poor above the poverty line — people still distrust the market and the nation continues to reform by stealth. The blame lies partly with our reformers who have not ‘sold’ the competitive market as Margaret Thatcher did in Britain. But fortunately, we now have in Narendra Modi an outstanding salesman of ideas who could…

    12 Oct 2014 | 2:23 am
    Civic virtue seldom comes naturally to human beings. It needs constant, relentless reminding and nowhere more than in India, which is still struggling to create citizens out of its people. The word ‘civic’ comes from ancient Greece and is related to ‘city’ and ‘civility’. A ‘citizen’ lived in a city and a ‘civilized’ person was expected to show concern for his fellow citizens. In this kindly act ‘civilization’ was born. Those without civic virtue were called idiots in Greece, which is, indeed, the origin of the word ‘idiot’. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is India’s most…

    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…

The charges against him were filed by a fellow DU professor (but in a different department), and they include forgery, illegal transport of genetically modified material, and plagiarism.

Water buffaloes wandered the open fields, grazing quietly. Sun shined occasionally through the clouds. Row-boats passed through the stream once-in-a-while.

A woman is sexually harassed every 12 minutes. 21 women are murdered every day. And this is the why feminism is called ‘feminism’ and not ‘humanism’ or ‘penises have been oppressed for too long now’, dear Men’s Rights Activists. Because women have been oppressed for so long that they are a symbol of oppression, and that’s what the “fem” in feminism refers to.

The saying used to be, what Intel giveth (in increased computing power), Windows taketh (their crappy software would slow down the computer). Here we are in 2014 and people are still using Windows XP and when they download something, they have no clue where the file is. You almost need a PhD in forensic science to find the file. No matter what Windows does, it just…

    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…

    It looks like, there will be very little pf price discovery in these markets if we keep having these amplified news driven reactions like the one yesterday with ITC back at rally start levels and unlikely to be a short for anything more than 1-2 hours in an earlier edition of the markets from 2004 – 2011, yet ITC continues to be on watch for some period and will likely be nicely and squarely accumulated for the biggest move later. Also that probably redefines Bajaj Auto and ITC both on defensive stocks for the coming decade and more. Bajaj Auto is hurting on another news driven…

Given that the market may avoid big moves for now, it could take anytime between today and next Wednesday for a big correction as the futures indices plough forward without move in the underlying. The PCR however is more than ready to keel over at the other extreme at 1.25 levels after starting up from a extreme value below 0.9. Apparently ( secondary off the shoulders from the TV behind me!) 600 points have run up on the Nifty (Udayan, morning show with LV on CNBC India ) . The…

  • Blaming Nehruji - Part 1; The 1948 War

    The modern Indian - regardless of political dispensation {IMHO}, has a rather disturbing propensity to blame Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for a variety of errors of omission and commission. A simple glance at a normal Facebook page, newspaper coverage, political utterances by a select few politicians etc all convey this rather sad fact; sad because this is done on the basis of incomplete facts. It is not my position that Panditji did not make mistakes; he was human, and was thus prone to error. But what were those errors? Under what situation were those erroneous decisions taken? And is every…

    Not many will have traveled to the villages that are found everywhere in Bangladesh to see how they live, as I have. Some villagers are lucky and live in clay buildings. They are lucky because clay at least blocks some of the cold winds during winter, but it’s still cold. Most live in homes made of corrugated tin. The walls are very nearly paper thin and have no insulation from the winds at all. At night they wrap themselves head to toe in blankets and huddle together for extra warmth. Winter does not last long in Bangladesh, but for the poor they wait for the warmth of spring and summer…

My heart cries out to those children, but I won’t give into their stories and offer money.

Most companies do not provide customer service training to their employees or it appears that they haven’t been trained which is why customer service, at least at the level that most westerners expect, does not exist. Sadly, this leaves Bangladesh far behind in the global scene. However, today I wish to enlighten the public about a case that goes beyond bad customer service.
