Bail Me.

Crying out in help is obvious when your are in danger,
but, coming out brave is always the better.

The effect of an error,
must not be escaped in fear.

Cause the mistake being made,
must not be gone without being said.

With so much being said all over on the world about bailing the companies out from the crisis, and all the company's looking for some help from the government. I say, how intelligent is it? How moral is it? 

Looking at the graphs and the trends and everything, we see rise and fall as a part of the nature and something that is not in our control. It is something that happens without our consent. So it happened this time - the giants felt apart to crumble down to the earth. The limit may have been reached. The numbers might have been too high, so it was time, no wonder, for it to fall.

These are some of the philosophical reasoning why the bailing must be stopped. But it happens every time in our society. For example, mistakes made by Celebrities or Bigger bodies being bailed out, now and then, for the sake of social stability. It is a social issue that needs to be considered properly. Not for the sake of the philosophical stability or to maintain the rules but to maintain the society. 

For the companies and everyone to grow, we need to understand our limitations and learn from the mistakes. We have had many wars and all kinds of tragedies, that taught us the way of life and the way of unquestionable nature.

Beside most of the reasons for not bailing out, like my friend here have mentioned. I consider that this crisis that has been impinged on us,  is a lesson to be learnt and not to be repeated afterwards. 

It is an opportunity to start again and build ourselves stronger. For example, if a crack in a building is gone unnoticed, during the process of building then, it will have strong and negative effect in future, causing millions of lives. 

The innovations in financial sector is very very new and experimental. How long has it been invented-only few years. So....... Are we ready to risk the whole generation on the findings that have not been tested to their fullest. This crisis shows that there is a tremendous fault in the today's financial system and the way economy is being measured and accounted for. 

Lets stop running away and rethink where we went wrong. We are sure to come up with the better solutions. As Winston Churchill had put it :
"This is not the end, but the end of the beginning."

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…
