Absense Note

Haven't been updating my blog for at least a month. I have been busy with many things lately. Our company, InRev has also made its journey to the third quarter and everyone is excited, with the fear within which our team has learnt to dominate already. The word "start up" has been a cliches for me. Everywhere I go, I keep seeing a banner saying : "Entrepreneurs or Start UP." And I find myself grouped among them. Trying to make your stand in a crowd is never so easy.

Not to mention my presence in the twitter, where I have made many friends and learnt a lot. Thanks to all of you for sharing, listening and off-course RTing :). Writing a blog in itself has become not only a passion for me, but also a way to outlet my vision to bring a better future. There are many friends along with my, moving forward with such determination to make a difference, which I salute and deeply admire. I wish, I had time to write to my blog often. But in my absence I have almost written many blog in other sites of which I have made no track of. Few to start with my own company's blogging portal, Global Thoughtz, Buzzom Blog and F-Cube Blog.

Now you make ask why so many blogging portal. I think its necessary for each company to have their blog for each of their product, cause each product has so many things to talk about. This will also create a path for people to find their queries answered immediately. A habit of reading that I had gained long time back has been a very fruitful thing for me, it has not only allowed me to write better but also think and understand better. Nope I am not trying to boast but I think its important that being a blogger you need to read a lot to understand what other's are talking about. Some time, I land up reading about things of which I have no idea. But the habit has made it easier for me to grasp the themes and get the moral of it.

Phew... it seems I haven't really been writing on my own blog, cause I am not finding any reason to stop now. But I will. This was just a blog to mark my re-entry. I have lot to tell my readers about things I have been learning lately. I hope I will keep the promise. The title should have been "I am BACK", :) but I guess "Absence Note" is OK.

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…
