    The gruesome killing of US journalist James Foley by ISIS, the Islamic group which has gained control of big swathes of Iraq and Syria, has given impetus to a rethink of what the US should be doing about the outfit. The US has already bombed ISIS targets in Iraq and has commenced surveillance of Isis positions in Syria. Both US and British special forces are said to have commenced the hunt for the killer of Foley, now believed to be a Briton. The US government has commenced a steady drumbeat of propaganda on the threats posed by ISIS, which is now touted as 'beyond anything we have seen so…

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) Kunal Deshmukh, going by his filmography, loves two things – Emraan Hashmi and cricket. After “Jannat” – a movie about cricket and match fixing – and the caper film “Jannat 2″, director Deshmukh seems to have combined the storylines for his latest offering – a caper film about cricket starring Hashmi. “Raja Natwarlal” is a flimsily written and half-heartedly directed film, which falls short of its lofty ambitions because no one…

The broader Nifty closed 3 percent higher, its fourth straight month of gains. The Indian stock market hit multiple record highs in August, helped by relentless foreign buying, easing of geopolitical tensions and continued optimism about the domestic economy’s revival.

Remembering that and the other films where she played a strong female character, a newly married Mukerji told India Insight she likes to strike a balance between what she calls substantial roles and those written only for entertaining fans.

    This is the 21st installment of my weekly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. Four years ago, when I started playing poker seriously, the games in India were incredibly soft. If I knew then what I know now, I would have made a fortune. Most players had either discovered poker on Zynga, or transitioned from teen patti. They either gambled it up, or played ABC poker. If you knew just the fundamentals, you could beat the game. I’m talking about No Limit Hold ‘Em (NLHE), of course.  That game has moved on a bit since then—but the new NLHE in India is PLO, or…

    This is the 20th installment of my weekly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. A marriage with two people can be complicated enough. Imagine then a marriage involving four, all of them bisexual. Instead of one couple, you don’t have two couples, but six, for each of them makes a pair with each of the others. The possibilities for drama are endless. It is a big difference, not a small one. It is the difference between Texas Hold ‘Em and Pot Limit Omaha (PLO). In PLO, you get four cards dealt to you, not two. So basically, you get dealt the equivalent of six Texas hands,…

This is a welcome change from the live cash games in Mumbai, for a couple of reasons. One, I enjoy playing tournaments, which are a very different format to cash games, and a good way to recharge oneself. Two, I like the fact that I can just sit down at a tournament table and play poker, without having to worry about the game outside the game. What is the game outside the game? Well, you know how…

An MBA by training, J was now a professional poker player. ‘Tell them you’re a game theorist,’ I said, ‘and are now engaged in the financially optimal application of your skills.’ My suggestion was glib and facetious: The skill involved in winning at poker is just half the story. The other half is disturbing and unpalatable. J and I frequently play a…

It calls to mind Indira Gandhi's much-maligned bank nationalisation move which helped transform India's economic prospects over the decade of the seventies.Bank nationalisation helped sweep small savings into the financial system and push up the savings rate from 10 per cent at the end of the seventies to over 20 per cent by the beginning of the…

  • Raghuram Rajan's father was a spy

    15 Aug 2014 | 9:02 pm
    I have heard RBI governor Raghuram Rajan's father being described as a 'diplomat' and I have found it rather intriguing because it has never been said that his father was an IFS officer or ambassador. Well, the mystery, at least for me, is now cleared up with Rajan confirming, in an interview with FT,  that his father was an officer in India's intelligence service. ( It appears to be RAW). Rajan is quick to clarify that his father was no James Bond:It is a topic Rajan discusses rarely, so I decide to be blunt. While growing up, did he know that his father was a spy? He didn’t, he…
  • Raghuram Rajan on venal politicians

    15 Aug 2014 | 5:02 am
    RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan's Lalit Doshi memorial lecture last week created a bit of a stir. Rajan chose to lash out against crony capitalism and the venal Indian politician: Even as our democracy and our economy have become more vibrant, an important issue in the recent election was whether we had substituted the crony socialism of the past with crony capitalism, where the rich and the influential are alleged to have received land, natural resources and spectrum in return for payoffs to venal politicians. By killing transparency and competition, crony capitalism is harmful to free…

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.

  • 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,…

    Atanu Dey
    15 Jul 2014 | 12:49 pm
    “The characteristic feature of present-day policies is the trend toward a substitution of government control for free enterprise. Powerful political parties and pressure groups are fervently asking for public control of all economic activities, for thorough government planning, and for the nationalization of business. They aim at full government control of education and at the socialization of the medical profession. There is no sphere of human activity that they would not be prepared to subordinate to regimentation by the authorities. In their eyes, state control is the panacea for all…

    Thirty-nine years have passed since that day when Indira Gandhi decided that Indians had enough of “democracy” and it was time that she dictated to them. Indians did what they have always been good at: they obeyed. Instead of resisting, they obeyed. Our problem, as Howard Zinn used to say, is not civil disobedience; our problem is civil obedience. Emergency ended on 23rd March, 1977. Did the people learn much? No. She won a landslide victory and once again became the prime minister in January 1980. She was right: the people did not deserve freedom. The people believed that they…

    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…

    It’s been a little over two months since the Modi sarkar came to power. Too soon, perhaps, for a definitive assessment, but there are signs of change; patterns are emerging; and even hints of a larger picture. Where we had expected discontinuity there is surprising continuity. This may say something about the evolution of authority, a maturing of the Indian state. Those who expected big bang reforms are disappointed and those who feared an intolerant autocracy are reassured. Modi himself has been remarkably silent. He has been busy getting things done — those who act often say little.

In our unequal, hierarchical Indian society, we need to correct our misguided notion about what constitutes a dignified life.

The Economic Times: There is every reason for these institutions to experiment with varied programmes. The UGC and the government must encourage, rather than thwart, innovation in pedagogy. Centres of excellence such as the IITs and the IISc and small, private universities are ideal for carrying out such experiments.

I was also looking to catch up with innovative learning professionals and friends Kavi Arasu and Sunder Ramachandran.Here's my takeaway:HR Technology is simplifying. The large players are moving…

    Getting to understand Twitter and using it well is not easy, since it is not a "social/professional networking site" but rather an "information stream". Here are some of the tools that I use along with Twitter to have a great Twitter experience.1. TweetdeckTweetdeck was one of the third party clients which got acquired by Twitter. And it is the primary interface by which I use Twitter on the desktop.

  • On the way from Manali to Rohtang Pass

    Arun Bhat
    31 Aug 2014 | 6:29 pm
    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.
  • Photographing Landscapes Near Bangalore – Savandurga

    Arun Bhat
    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 am
    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…

    Regular readers have seen many images from Chandratal on this blog in the past. Here is another one from a recent trip. Chandratal Lake is a place I have been going to for a few years now. 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,…

    In the last few days, I have been making a conscious attempt to return to making landscape images. I hadn’t been shooting landscapes for a very long time, and it became evident in an outing last week when I made my first image with complete disregard to many sacrosanct concepts of photographing landscapes. I was quick to realize and recover, and determined to work on shooting more landscapes. In the process, there was much homework done, places scouted, frames envisioned and multiple visits made around Bangalore. Here is an image — in fact the only frame made so far — in the…

    The Startup Guy

  • 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…

    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…

    Vijay Anand

    I am puzzled by reading emails where it says nothing but “Hi, I am looking for a Job”, and so do many of the startup founders I know of. Trust me, there is a need for good talent, but a talent that doesn’t even bother to explain what they do is categorized quickly into the “no” bucket. Giving everyone the benefit of the doubt, and since everyone is so good at following templates, here is a template of what MUST go into an introduction email – if you are reaching out to someone for a job. Applies for most things, but specifically more so, when it comes to…

  • Amarnath Yatra :: Ganesh Top to Panchtarni

    Anupam Chakraborty
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:30 pm
    We saw pilgrims tired and exhausted, moving slowly resting after every step or two and painfully looking at the steep ascent of Ganesh Top, thinking might be about the steps left, some were searching the shortest route and other going slow but steady. The pain was much less for us except sore back due to long horse riding. Suddenly, we saw a U shape mountain just before the Ganesh Top, standing tall and high, looking at the pilgrims as if it was a gate to heaven. Slowly we climbed up to the highest point of Amarnath Yatra route, the Mahagunus Top or the Ganesh Top at an altitude of 14500 ft…

    The entire ambience is soothing and spiritual with kirtans being sung by the gurus sitting inside the temple. Even though the entire journey from the start of the line till one enters the actual temple where the Guru Granth sahib is kept and Gurbani is recited takes about three hours, thousands of people from all castes, creeds and ethnicities throng the Golden temple every day. The temple is open all through the day and night except from 12am to 3pm when the routine cleaning takes place. Awaiting their turns to enter the holy chamber the “Ekonkar” mantra is chanted by all the devotees.

    Over the last 7 years of Ghumakkar’s existence, one common and often repeated request was to have some kind of face to face interaction within the community. Many of our community members have met with each other, and have developed long lasting friendships. In fact, at times it is very humbling to know that someone met someone else at Ghumakkar and now both the families not only interact and meet each other but also travel to new places, together. That gives the Ghumakkar crew a feeling of true accomplishment. I, myself, have met many of you and each experience has been a rewarding one.

    It is trite to emphasise that for proper and healthy functioning of democracy, the major institutions, that build up this edifice mankind by and large have come to consider nearly the best way to organise themselves politically, must work in a cohesive manner.

    31 Aug 2014 | 5:52 am
    Monday,September 1: The long drawn out drama of new labelling regulations shows no signs of abating. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has made it mandatory for imported foods and alcoholic beverages to list all their ingredients on the label, in Devanagari or English. The new labelling requirements, however, are not feasible for many international wine producers for whom India is a small market, observes Reva K. Singh. As if this were not enough, an imported wine also requires to be tested in "approved labs" in India.

    The differences in the mindset of South Indians and North Indians has been the object of much fascination and in no small measure, pride and envy. The stereotype of the rough, rugged, aggressive, foul-mouthed, back-stabbing, money-minded, itching-for-a-fight “Punjabi/Bhaiyya/Bihari” stands in stark contrast to the soft, docile, introverted, passive, friendly “Madrasi”. The reasons usually trotted out for this obvious gap are the rougher terrain in the north, the inhospitable climate with extremes of summer and winter, and the number of wars and invasions at the hands…

  • Selective Silence On The Ayodhya Temple Issue, And Why Mr. Modi Needs To Take A Clear Stand

    anshultewari@gmail.com (Youth Ki Awaaz)
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:24 am
    By Anusha Sundar: “Jo swapna dekhte Baabar ke / Armaan mitaa-kar maanenge!” These harrowing chants marked the aggressive riots that shook Uttar Pradesh and several other states in 1992. The country, in its ignorant slumber, was jolted awake by a sudden wave of communal clashes that claimed the lives of over five thousand people and left many displaced. The Babri Masjid was demolished, a Ramjanmabhoomi was claimed and several unsettling threats made. While debates have been centred on the absurdity of the Ayodhya dispute, what we must seriously ponder over and deconstruct is the hardline…

    Tata Motors up until last week had been under flying under the radar while they rebuild their company. For many years, the cars that Tata Motors produced were about as exciting as watching paint dry and hence were mainly sold to taxi fleets. Then in early 2008, Tata Motors revealed to the world what was billed as the cheapest car ever made – Tata Nano. Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata unveiled the car and said instead of riding on a bike with 4 people, consumers could instead ride in a car. Two things derailed their plans which the Nano has never recovered from. The first thing is…

    Wintel has been dominating desktop computers since the early 80′s. Never heard of Wintel? Wintel = Windows + Intel. The combination of software from Microsoft and the CPU from Intel powered the desktop computer revolution. 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.

To the outside world you talk about financial planning, long term goals and asset allocation.

    Over the past few years you might have heard the term “sharing economy” being thrown around. Which is a more consumer friendly term for monetizing underutilized fixed assets. This is different from an eBay where you have an old phone which you want to sell and they provide the marketplace to find a buyer for it.  It’s also different from Elance where you are offering your professional services to people looking for those skills. Personally I like the term spare capacity over “sharing economy” because that’s really what it is.

At the heart of a good search engine optimisation strategy is the keyword. Given the singular it is, it brings about many a challenge for an SEO company especially in India.

    Despite there being variations due to different verticals, planning methodologies & implementation techniques which impact the dynamics of CRO, there remain a few key principles which will always be true. 1) Testing Small – Don’t bother if a test is too small or small. There is no rule which says all test has to be path-breaking. Didn’t we learn somewhere many small wins and losses lead to learnings which are responsible for big wins?

Oil PSUs ONGC and OIL and the OMCs will probably instead switch into their usual positions in investor portfolios , ONG remaining long because of the weakness in Brent prices and as the realisation dawns on the non impact in the Indian crude basket pricing, the gains could and should now shift to IOC and BPCL who are able to cut petrol prices at the pump and in a year or two demand for petrol vehicles could be back to 2010 levels.

    28 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm

Rather, I was part of India's finest e-governance project, MCA21, rolling out new initiatives and winning awards. It was lot more satisfying than what I imagined. But then, I also have a simple rule-of-thumb for career change: You quit at peak. You take a bet, you make it a win. While still winning, you take your next big bet. Will you always win?

    This world is full of people with strong opinions. The people who think that they are on the 'absolutely' right side and all others, who don't agree with them, are on the 'wrong' side. For them it is, 'either you are with us or you are against us' - a ridiculously immature attitude. Not even for a moment, they can entertain the idea that there is tiny teeny possibility that they could be wrong (borrowing on the words from the character Phoebe in Friends series).

The on going belief is that any company should be process oriented and not people oriented. Nonsense. Processes by themselves are lifeless; it is people who impute life to these processes. A committed, skilled, and intelligent person will work with a process (sometimes within and sometimes without) to achieve phenomenal success. An idiot will get killed by the same process. Processes don't supersede people. Processes aid people not to overlook key factors in…

I could see people, though scarce in number and outspread on the field, working as farmers for the crop…The crop that would feed them and us. I witnessed how their hard work benefited us, they made grains available for ourselves to buy. Then, I wondered that someday my hard work would help others too. Interlaced with their sweat, rain washed the land. They ploughed and ploughed, till the land was ready to produce. In the uninterrupted pelting of rain, maverick birds flew through the wind…Some flew against,…

Their tore up feathers I collected, and preserved them so I could remember them even after they left. Tickle of my small fingers on the feathery head is still afresh in the memory.
