One more thing | Apple and its Marketing.

Apple is known to define its own marketing. It has reached a point where companies try to emulate what Apple’s been doing till now. But, that is not easy to do and not worth copying. Because what Apple does can be done best only at Apple, by Apple. Apple has been built around certain key boundaries and pillars. Steve Jobs made it very clear to run the company within these bounds. Apple products are built keeping the customer satisfaction at its core. This is the reason you can find customers going…

My problem with God | Seasons of waiting.

I have a problem with God. He has stopped his one-on-one communication and that’s creating a lot of confusion here on earth. Problems that would have been easily solved if He’d just talk. I don’t ask God to come down and talk to me; it’ll be hard to survive that encounter (if you know what I mean). For me, a little dream here and there would work. Oh wait, I’ve got an idea! God, if you are reading this, please comment. 🙂 (I promise it’ll be a secret; none of…

I remember once such instance that has struck me through all these years. As we stood there waiting for our delayed train busy in our talks, we were approched by a small girl asking for money. Her innocence combined with my pity made me sympathize her situation. As she approched my sister, my hands were already in my pocket to take out some change. Waiting…

Believe me, there is a place not far from India where trains come and depart on time. As a passenger who has spent endless hours in platform waiting for a train. This doesn’t look real. But Japanese train companies are serious about time management. Their trains are perfectly timed, to the second. The thought of looking at Japanese train system came to mind last week. When I had 3.5 hours of free time in Allahabad station. My train, due to come at 22:00 came at around 00:00 and stayed another hour…

Learning from America’s school shootings and a Sowers announcement.

I remember clearly when I was in school, bringing a mobile phone during my senior year was the bravest thing I could do and kids these days are bringing automatic rifles. Times are changing and the results speak for themselves. At least 130 students have died during school hours due to gun violence, states the Washington Post’s report. America is fighting hard to keep her temples of knowledge from turning into hunted places which breed fear. America clearly needs stricter gun laws. But, is that it? and how can Indian learn from…
