Perspective

Look at this picture very carefully. It was taken a year back when I was on my field trip to one of the hilly villages in Nepal (Richowk). I was there for a case study on Solar Power System. 

I stood here in this particular spot for about some minutes and it totally changed my view on the concept of development. And mind you, I was there only for a minute but those minutes were too powerful for me. 

Look at the river winding itself around the land and making its way. And if you look closely, you will see Nepal's national highway too, winding along with the river. Following the nature seems so vivid and strong here. 

One may wonder why is the river winding itself and not going straight and same goes to the highway. WHY? Just why does it have to wind itself. Even nature seems helpless to its own structure. Even nature is finding difficulties in over-coming itself. But as the scientific reasoning goes, the river will ultimately take the short-cut and so will the roads. So are we waiting for the river to make the first move?

What if we don't wait and bombard the whole mass of land with bombs and make the way for the river. Isn't that possible? I think it is. But just a second. Should we do it? Hmm. Its a same kind of ethical questions that you ask now and then again to yourself.  So what do we do? Confused. Ya I am full of confusion. So lets ask ourself a new question. Is it necessary to have a road that goes straight through the hills. Well, yes I think. It will make the journey fast. But how much capital do you think must be invested to attain this. May be, we can do something better with it then bombarding the place and if you are really in hurry, I suggest taking a plane. Well, may be well said. 

There is philosophy which says go with the nature and not against it. Because if you go against it, you distrub the whole balance of the nature. Imagine in this case, our one stupid step to make a straight road may have impact on the people staying there. Their usual life-style will be distrubed. But I am not arguing that lets not do it. What I mean is go with the nature and it will guide you through. Trying to straighten the river, you may be bending the nature. Think about it.

But everyone has differnt way of thinking. May be not everyone will follow my logic cause we are made that way. We have multi-dimensional perspective. Even though we are looking at things from the same angle physically, your mind seems to be in totally different dimension. Perplexed and Amazed, I can only say  when you do realize the truth make sure we follow it without fear.

  1. yes nature today is above a chop board where humans are eliminating, or more obviously, chopping out its elements....
    this written peice can be a message to all those choppers to understand that they are also the elements and never know, we all also can be chopped off.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)
OK, how does thi…

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

The day I dreamt of becoming someone

Reading a story is like pealing an onion, each chapters reveal new secrets and show their hidden layers. Everyone has their own story to tell, that is mysteriously connected with the stories of millions of other people living or dead in this planet. We think ourselves as an individual with our own identity and conscience, but NO, we are connected beings not with DNA or through our blood lines - but through our stories. Stories are at the heart of our being, and they are our reasons of living. The physical being of us has no meaning, but as a connected being with millions of other stories, we individually play an important role. So here is my story of dreaming.

Story doesn’t begin when we are born, or when we are given a name by the almighty holy priest. It beings when we all hit by our consciences that pushes us to make a decision that transpires our story and defines our character and role in this world. For some it begins early, but for some it begins late. However, it always being…
