Girl and Boy Theory

Lets take one case study or an hypothetical scenario to clarify the 80/20 rule more better. Stay with me in it.

In the above picture, there is one male (M) and 5 females A,B,C,D,E. Obviously, its one of the social theory that there is a mutual attraction between the male and female, and that in this group the possible outcome would be a pair. All depends upon the M.

Lets assume a scenario that among 5 girls, A loves the M more than anyone. Now, what should M do.

If he is dump and doesn't know 80/20 rule:

He will try to bring a balance in his relationship by committing to everyone equally. He doesn't want to lose any one of them so tries very hard to bring equality in the group. This obviously is not going to entertain the girl A, thus A starts losing interest. Ultimately, there is very likely chance that he won't be able to be close to anyone and then finally, the group breaks and the girls disband him. I consider that a loss.

If he knows the significance of 80/20 rule:

He will focus on the girl A more and gives his 100% to her. In the mean time, he keeps in touch with the others but doesn't try to impress others much. As a result, others respect his feeling towards girl A, and girl A is more then happy to have him.

I consider it a success. Ultimately, he is very happy to have her too. And it makes lots of sense.
And this is actually in more harmony then in the case before.


Harmony always doesn't mean equality, its more then that. If a Business tries to bring equality in the case like above then it is going towards the pitfall. But if it tries the second, then it will bring lots of respect from the customer as well as from those customer that really do not bring any business. So, this is the key point that I wanted to make.


  1. Hey I will call this post as Theory for boys where u have layed down 80/20 rule.
    What for Girls ? is the theory extremely opposite ;)

  2. I think it is same for both girl and boy. I can't see any difference. They are equal aren't they? :)

  3. It's a nice theory, I saw it happen in real. But the problem was the guy 'M' still chose to be a cheater after he got girl 'A'. I like 80/20 theory. I'll keep it in mind. :)

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? …

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)

Waiting for the right bus

Everyday, after college I would walk home with my friends. Wandering around and talking about future. What will we do? How will we be? How much will we change? Ideas! Ambitions! Life!!!

Everything always tumbled down to a cup of tea at a near by shop, where we were regular visitors. A sip of tea and bunch of thought provoking questions and contradictions. All intelligent and weird minds searching for the answer to a common question - the meaning of life. Trying to find that right path towards salvation. Complete Consciousness!!

Now and then we would simply get lost within ourselves, in the midst of the crowd. Thoughts wandering far beyond the time frame. Everyone building their life on their own dimensions. Confident. Lost. But hopeful.

Like some lost sailors on a boat, every one of us would be looking at different directions hoping to see some signs of calling. But then we wouldn't find any. "What are we searching for ?", would be one damning question in every one'…
