Something on Life

look at it. As I was playing with MSpaint, I made it just for fun. Then, somebody comes and tells me, wow, is it an abstract art. I go "Mmmmmm, I donno."

But he doesnot stop there, he pulls down the chair and sits and stares at it. I think you have portrayed a life. And I go LIFE!. How can it be life. Then he goes away leaving me confused. Then I stay confused and totally flattered in a way. "LIFE" I am thinking. But how?

Then I draw the same in paper and try figuring it out. Life Huh. So I toss the paper, and see if I can see it. Nop not from this angle and I go and see from other angle. No no. I think I am getting something wrong. For about 15 minutes I stare at it like a zombie. Inside me there is this voice shouting "LIFE". If I can just see it. But no. I get frustated. I try coloring it and making it look as stupid and as abstract but I have no success. I go as far as I can. I burn it. I tear it. I flip it. I take it near to the mirror. It try to look at it from different perspective. I try to create a mathematical equation for it but still no Life. Dammn. I must be a fool. How can he see it but not me. 

After much frusted hours I look back at it and see its no longer what I made it before. It is no longer so simple. Now it has become more complex and absurd and totally stupid. I give it one more glance. Then I realize something. I smile to myself. I tear the paper off and walk out of the room. I am satisfied,  I think to myself.  Now I see the Life. Can you?

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)

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? …

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it?

As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so.
It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise. Just…
