My fun presentation at Pune

I was invited by ISB&M, a marketing and communication school, to speak with the incoming batch at their Pune campus.

Good Fun – repost from Verbum

I just finished reading Inebriation by Gaurav and was reminded of my second only attempt at writing in verse – the one before this was in school, I remember. Dug this out from my blog Verbum that I used to write before I launched Blogworks.
This was June 2006. I had just quit my job and was planning to go the entrepreneur route – captures the mood 🙂
Good fun
It’s good fun, I tell you
On a journey,
once again.
Oh, why? you say.
Simple;
Because, I must.
Because,
you ought to stretch,
to grow taller.
Drop a few leaves,
to earn a new burst.
Trust me,
I done this before.
Go try,
I tell you. It’s good fun!

Yes, I am a school boy still when it comes to writing a poem, if this can be called one :).

Organised Retail :)

“Mango Shake Idhar Hai, Aapkaa Dhyaan Kidhar Hai?” teased at least two of the near identical carts I passed by yesterday, driving back from the C.A.’s office. I asked my driver to reverse the vehicle and clicked these pictures. There were four of these carts – 3 parked next to each other and 1 just a bit away – in all their kitsch glory, tempting summer hit pedestrians.
Makes me think why can’t the friendly neighborhood kirana stones similarly come together under a common brand, to meet the threat posed by organised retail? Each keeps their sales and profits, but contributes to a common marketing pool and wears the same colours/ brand and sources together.
Any examples of something like this from India. In a way, Amul (or any other cooperative) is exactly that, no?
