Time is Tissue….
Who doesn’t value time? At least I don’t know anybody who doesn’t…But then at times circumstances are such that you can’t help but just let time take control….Had gone to drop Mom to the station and so confident that the train would be on time that I dint bother to call up and check if the train is on time or not. And to my dismay on reaching the station, got to know that the train was delayed by 5 hours…..And to add to the gloom sitting at the station and pondering what to do for the next 5 hours, the cloud turned dark, wind starting blowing as if nature was in fury and it started pouring. Mom and I were chatting all the while about major and trivial issues and every 15 minutes would look at our watches and feel God why is time taking its toll on us…..
IPL in South Africa = Loss to India
No I am not a cricket fan at all…..But then my job gets me involved in branding, PR, analysis, market watch etc….And knowing the popularity and buzz around IPL which of course cannot be ignored I just made a few observations….Since Indian has always been a commercial giant for cricket, after the IPL-II which took place this year in South Africa, SA has been hogging all the limelight which India possessed…..
- Tourism is recession gained popularity in SA thanks to the IPL
- Huge advertising investments in SA – courtesy IPL
- Loss to the Aviation industry
- A new concept called Brand South Africa came into existence
Animals too have PRIDE!
Let me elucidate that. Well ya this was like a little astonishing. Our family is animal lover and more so my dear mom……Since she was on a vacation to Bangalore for 4 weeks she of course missed her 3 pets, stray dogs whom she has adopted…..She would make it up for that by giving some left over food to the street dogs. What was really hard to believe was that the dogs would in the first place not just come running seeing the food, Mum had to literary call them and even if they came, they would sniff the food, if they felt the food was tasty would have it or else would just walk away. Wow I mean looks like they have loads of choice….. Mum made sure that she gave them right combination of food, in the sense they wouldn’t have rice and sambar or chapati with milk……And we think stray dogs are senseless and unruly…..
