    This is the 8th installment of Lighthouse, my monthly column for BLink, a supplement of the Hindu Business Line. I have a coffeeshop question for you. You are sitting in a café with a friend, talking about this and that, and a stranger comes and sits at the next table. It could be anyone: a gorgeous girl, a Bollywood celebrity, a gym-toned hunk. There is a moment’s pause, while you and your friend take in the presence of this new person, and then you continue talking. But you are aware that this stranger, who is alone, can hear every word you say. You and your friend are not…

  • Movie Review: Daawat-e-Ishq

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    19 Sep 2014 | 5:43 am
    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…

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    19 Sep 2014 | 1:01 am
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) If you are looking for a modern version of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s much-loved film of the same name, then Shashanka Ghosh’s “Khoobsurat” may disappoint you. Mukherjee’s film was centred on Manju (incidentally the name of the main character’s mother in the remake), a rather effervescent heroine who steamrolls her way to everything and takes it upon herself to change the lives of a rather dull family. Ghosh’s film takes the same premise, but not the…

    By Ankush Arora Indian diplomat Navtej Sarna‘s latest book pieces together the history of an Indian “hospice” in Jerusalem. Spread over seven thousand square metres near the Dome of the Rock, the property has its origins in a visit by Sufi saint Baba Farid about 800 years ago. Farid, a pioneer of the Punjabi literary tradition, supposedly meditated for 40 days in an underground chamber in Jerusalem. His presence brought followers to this site and it “expanded through the centuries as a place for Indian pilgrims to stay.” Thus begins the journey of “Indians…

Uma Bharti, Modi’s minister for water resources and Ganges rejuvenation, has said the river would be clean in three years.

We think we are masters of the universe – but really, we are not even masters of our own selves.

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…

    By the time you read this, I will have finished all eleven Miss Marple books. Let me tell you a secret: I never really liked Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s elderly woman detective. 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. He is the “greatest detective in the world” by his own…

To boost the existing success,the brand now has decided to leverage its prized asset- the brand ambassador- Shah Rukh Khan.  SRK has been the brand ambassador of Hyundai for the last 16 years. According to NDTV, this 16 years association is a record for any brand-celebrity in India. From the launch of Santro to the i10, SRK has been the integral part of the brand campaign for Hyundai. But more than the brand…

  • Brand Update : Axe finally respond to competition through Axe Signature

    So finally a response from HUL to competition. After being relegated to No.3 in the deo market by Fogg and Wildstone, Axe finally launched its answer to the competition- Axe Signature Collection Deo.It was surprising that HUL which is supposedly the best marketing machine in India took so long to respond to competition. Its almost a replay of the Nirma- Surf episode where the market leader was slow in responding to local competition eventually to find itself dethroned as  the market leader. HUL (in my opinion ) was very slow in reacting to Fogg's entry into the market with the No-Gas…

    Brand : XcentCompany : HyundaiBrand Analysis  : # 548While there are many conflicting views about re-birth in the human world, the brand-world is full of brands dying and getting re-born in another avatar. One such case is Hyundai Accent. The once best selling sedan from Hyundai died in 2013 when sagging sales prompted the company to pull the plug on one of the most successful automobile brands in India. In 2014, Hyundai launched its first sub 4 meter sedan Xcent. The similarity in the brand name cannot be wished away as a mere coincidence. The company wants to continue Accent's…

    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…

    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…

    Grades and grade point averages at Ivy League colleges mean less than they did before, the Economist reports : In 1950, Mr Rojstaczer estimates, Harvard’s average grade was a C-plus. An article from 2013 in the Harvard Crimson, a student newspaper, revealed that the median grade had soared to A-minus: the most commonly awarded grade is an A........Universities pump up grades because many students like it.

There are many issues that employees face in blowing the whistle unethical actions or violations of the law. Is it safe to report such things? If the MD is involved, whom do they report to?

    Governments in the US and Europe have set their faces against bailouts of failed banks following the crisis of 2007- the Dodd FranK Act in the US prohibits such bailouts hereafter. Yet, as an article in the FT asks: what alternatives do we have?A time tested-alternative, the author points out, was to merge a failed bank with a strong bank. Banks are now finding out that this can be costly for one reason or another. The huge fine that BofA has had to cough up has to do with the problems at Merrill Lynch and Country which it acquired in 2008 and these problems happened before the merger. This…

    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,…

    “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…

    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…

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.

    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…

    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…

    3 Aug 2014 | 3:04 am
    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.

  • Durga Temple, Anegundi near Hampi

    Arun Bhat
    12 Sep 2014 | 10:14 pm
    Some images are serendipitous. I was charmed by the colourful bundles hanging on the branches, tied by people who came to the temple seeking blessings. I aimed my camera, and this lad immediately ran in and decided that he should pose for the camera. I normally don’t like it much when there is a distraction to a preconceived image. But this boy was adding a lot of life to an otherwise inanimate image. I was more than happy to press the shutter-release. At Durga Temple, Anegundi. Across the river from Hampi.

  • 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,…

  • Sobering season for liquor importers

    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 same is true with many vegetables that we buy today.

    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…

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.

    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 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…

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,…

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.

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…

You all would have read about how police can track down cell numbers and mobile phones, doing this tracking when the phones have been used in crimes, and use such tracking to eventually detect the criminals who they are trying to find. As a result, it is also becoming more important to ensure that your own mobile phones and numbers remain safe. Earlier, when such police tracking was not available, if your mobile phone was stolen, then you were less worried about the numbers being used for some crime. Nowadays, with…

Earworms are defined as catchy tunes that stay lodged in one's head and play on loop long after the music has actually stopped. Psychologists believe that there are different ways of coping with earworms, for although they sound pleasant, they can get quite tiresome - as anybody who has battled with Hum Saath Saath Hai's ridiculous "ABCD" song will…

    1) Manmohan Singh ji can in fact talk. Even if his secretaries need to highlight sentences in his speeches where they want him to put more emphasis, or sections where they expect applause so that he can stop. He can speak. Allah be praised. 2) It wasn’t like Sonia ji didn’t let him do anything. Yes he couldn’t hire his media advisor in 2009, he couldn’t appoint ministers of his choice, he couldn’t stop A Raja from becoming a minister, Pranab Mukherjee would forget to brief him about important meetings with heads of states, but he always had the complete freedom to resign of his…

However, the way markets kept falling on Friday and Monday together, it was mostly egress of air bubbles in expectations that could be much more dangerous further on, as markets still looked to pressure RBI and guv Rajan for a rate cut, which India is nowhere near with WPI at 3.67% but CPI still near 8% at 7.80% There is bad news for the Rupee ahead as again at…
