I Wish She Had Smart Suraksha App

We all know about the story of India's daughter 'Nirbhaya'

For those who don't know about her, she was a girl who was raped mercilessly in a moving automobile around the city for more than 4 hours, hit by a steel road and left on the road half naked. There were many people who passed by, but no one helped her. After a long time, she was recovered by the police and was sent to hospital. She was severely injured and was on coma. After some days, she died. Recently, Saketh court sentenced the rapists to death. However it would never bring the life of that girl back. 



I now wish, she had Smart Suraksha app. She could've alerted 5 of her contacts and the police with a single click of a button.

The Future Of Shopping

When I was asked to write about the future of shopping, all I could think was the world would be completely robotized. I hardly could think of anything else.

Whenever I stereotype something, I always seek the help of my friends. Trust me!! Brainstorming works like a dream all the time. It has helped me personally as well as professionally many a times.

A Week In Paradise

Theme: If you'll take your family or friends to anywhere on the earth, where would that be and how would you make your trip the happiest one ever?


To start with, I would take my family (Dad & Mom is all I've in my family) to the one of the most sought after destinations of the world - EUROPE. Why my family? Why not my friends? Almost every trip in my life was with my friends. Dad and mom, throughout their life have never been to a proper tourist destination. They've always been working hard and sacrificing their wishes for the betterment of my sister and me. I could have taken them to some of the tourist destinations nearby, but I always wanted to give them the best experience ever. Hence I've saved this dream tourist destination for them.

Thalaivaa & Chennai Express - The Trending Story

8-Aug-2013 Around 10PM (Thalaivaa India Trending No.1):


9-Aug-2013 Around 3AM (Thalaivaa India Trending No.1):




That awesome moment, when Thalaivaa trends way above the so-called Bollywood biggie 'Chennai Express' in Twitter India Trends. This is supposed to be a proud moment for any South-Indian Cinema fan but look what our government has done. It has stopped the movie releasing tomorrow in Tamil Nadu after some stupid bomb threats. I wonder, why do we have the police department then? Are they only for giving protection to the politicians who has done nothing for the country?

New TVC By Redbus - Review



The Ad starts with a robber climbing down the pipes of an apartment after his robbery act. After he gets down, he sees an angry police officer standing right opposite to him but across the road. The thief turns scary when the police officer starts approaching him. Suddenly, the thief turns happy hearing the 'HONK' sound of a bus which has got the name 'Redbus.in'. The thief gets in the bus and escape out of there. Soon after the police officer and a dog, got into another two buses with the name 'Redbus.in'. That's when you see the caption 'When you gotta go, you gotta go'. The dog and the police officer then reach the destination and get hold of the thief, who was just having a relaxed walk thinking that he just escaped from the police officer.

Exploring GOA With My Best Friends

The recent trip to Goa with my best friends is by far the best drive of my life. Yes!!! The all time favorite destination for many - Goa - A paradise which is filled with palm trees swaying across the coastline of endless beaches with a gentle humid breeze.

I rate it the best because we've used almost all types of vehicles in this trip. We took a flight from Bangalore to Goa, rented a car to reach the Goa city, hired Bajaj Enticer bikes to roam around, took a boat ride, reached airport by an authentic Goan Bus (I don't think you would see that kind of bus anywhere else That's why I said Authentic) and again a flight back to Bangalore. Yes you got me - Air, Land & Water.

Our first day in Goa - Honestly we didn't have an idea of what to do. One of the french travelers advised us to hire some bikes and go wherever, the road is leading us to. In fact, that was a great idea which worked like a charm. Without knowing the destination, the ride we took launched us into different beautiful places and all of us were enthralled with the beauty of Goan Beaches across the coastline and the friendly nature of people in Goa.

Of course we did some crazy stunts too. Please don't miss to watch the photos attached towards the end of this blog. 

It all started here. We were four in number. We hired two Bajaj Enticer bikes (Red and Black colored) near the Calangute Beach which costed us around Rs. 300 for a bike (Pretty cheap. Isn't it? )

Reinventing The Wheel - The Thirst Quencher

If you are reading this blog in an afternoon, you might have already consumed around 4-5 glasses of drinking water. That's a lot of water, isn't it? If 'No' is your answer, you must continue to read on.


The U.N predicted, 2/3 of the world's population will suffer water shortages by 2025. Most of us don't even think twice before we waste a cup of drinking water. Did we ever care about what's happening in rural India and other rural regions of the world? To start with, here's a fact -  Much of the water available in our country flows into the Arabian sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian ocean because of the lack of distribution and proper storage facilities. One out of seven people in the world lives more than a mile away, from the source of the water they drink.

4 Best Things In My Life - I Saw, I Learnt, I do

At some point of time, everyone in their life learns something. Sometimes, it takes repeated incidents of a given law of life to really get into our skull and other times, one powerful and thoughtful experience drives the point home once forever. Experience gives us a lot, what more than 100 books cannot give.

How to show my gratitude to the people I'm forever indebted to? I don't know. May be, I can convey the message taught by them to others through a blog. Though the amount of learning is almost countless, whenever someone ask you the things you learnt in your life, there are few things which comes as a snap right across your mind. Today I'm gonna tell you of those things I saw, I learnt and I'm doing right now. I totally apologize for the length of the blog :-P, but it's worth it.

Now that's what I call as Innovation!!!

Innovation seems to be a grossly overrated term. Innovation, in my humble opinion, really means figuring out a way to commercialize something which is new. It need not be new all the time, it could be the combination of existing services, products and technologies which could give rise to an innovation. Say for example, people visiting Facebook and people visiting twitter have got different intentions.

ATTITUDE is all that matters!!!!!!!

What makes a person live beyond his fears? 
What makes a person feel determined? 
What is it that encourages him to perform with a new zeal even after a terrible failure? 
What makes him value tolerance and value?

I have a single word as an answer for all the above questions - ATTITUDE!!!

What do they say about Attitude?

Michael Jordan says - "My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength".

Albert Einstein says - "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character".

Zig Ziglar says - "Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude".


It's your attitude which will determine your altitude

A Road To Cliffs, Green Terrain, Blue Skies & Water

Road trips have always been and still a classic Indian pastime and I certainly do not see these amazing driving adventures go out of style anytime soon. I guess that's because there's no other way to experience the rugged cliffs, breath taking mountain views and waterfront villages that dot India's varied landscape than from behind the wheel of an automobile.

When I go for a road trip, I would always prefer my all-time-favorite Toyota Prius. For this road trip, I'm gonna take the newly launched Toyota Prius V for it's outstanding features on road. Here's some snaps of my road trip beast.

Danger - It comes with a WARNING!!



Look. I am not trying to fool you. You are going to get old sometime and that's gonna happen in a fraction of a time frame. You will realize it only when your days are gone. I could hear you saying 'Dude!! Don't speak like my Grandpa, I'm still young'. Yes you can be and will be young unless and until you don't ignore the warning signs that you receive before a danger arrives at you. Most of the dangerous things which happens around you comes with a warning. Be it an earthquake or an accident perhaps.

A Friend Who Has Always Stood Up For Women - #SoldierForWomen



When everyone speaks about a celebrity or a historical figure who has stood up for women at some point of time in their life, I would like to speak about a very close friend of mine. He has always stood up for women, though he was criticized severely for all of his activities focused towards empowering women in the society.
