All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go!

I've been studying for as long as I can remember. I started working before I graduated, with the result that I've been working through college and after that as well. Then came MBA preparations that drove me a little bit crazier.

With all that crazy-mad rush to be the best and rush to complete assignments and projects, clients constantly breathing and drooling down your neck with every minor changes and details, I've been aching for a vacation, a really nice, relaxed vacation. So, when a friend Madhur Ramani suggested we go to Shillong for a short ten-day trip, it was awesome! Just the thing I was looking for.

So, for the next ten days or so, right up to the 22nd of this month, I shall be off blogging, off facebook and almost off every other social media except maybe my cell phone and email. I shall see you guys on the other side of his awesome cold cold winter as soon as I get back from my trip.

Be good, be happy, be awesome!

Adios y'all!

I always love going off the grid! Of course I go through withdrawal but it really is kind of liberating to think "oh my god my cell phone is vibrating" and then go to check it and realize, you don't even have a phone with you. Awesome. Enjoy it.

Awesome BTL campaigns and Brand Activations!

Okay, so with great power comes great responsibility. Uncle Ben clearly never worked in an ad agency. Even with the chindi powers of an account planner, there comes the responsibility of coming up with the wildest strategy ideas that the brand can accomodate. This brought me to an oft-used old school marketing technique that's been making a comeback in recent times - BTL, urf Below The Line.
See, there were these two sisters A and B. They were strippers at a club. A was the sleazy but slightly less beautiful one while B was extremely hot yet of a nicer nature. Owing to their personalities, their performances were far far different from each other. A always took centrestage, twisted the pole, held the entire crowd's attention. B on the other hand, was the lap dancer, keeping herself to private performances. Since A was right on the stage, she got a lot of tips from the entire crowd, but she could never tell how much she'd get, but it pleased everyone, so it pleased her as …

Mistakes

Mistakes, one too many, that’s what it takes
For a belief to transform, a cynic it makes
Sitting at your corner, sipping on a cup half empty,
Remembering the days gone by, a lost lifetime of self-pity.

No sleep, no peace, no arm to lean on
Never a moment spent without regret,
The cup reads Coffee, it reeks of rum
They told us time and again, never drink to forget.

Time goes by, the world goes on,
And here you sit, a figure forlorn,
A merry giggle lifts your brow at last,
A hint of a smile, all light is not lost.

Classroom Shayaris!

Been a long time! MICA's a blast and there's a lot to do. But in the midst of it all, classroom capers are commonplace. So, presenting a few of what I like to call Classroom Shayaris, courtesy yours truly being bored to death from four hours of sleep and a droning professor:


Tere pyaar ne kar diya pagal,
Tere pyaar ne kar diya pagal,
Shareholder's equity is called share capital!
Wah wah wah!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dum maaro dum, mit jaaye gum,
Dum maaro dum, mit jaaye gum,
A share's issue price can be at a premium!

(I think this deserves an applause :P )

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dikhne mein toh tu lagti hai badi sweet,
Dikhne mein toh tu lagti hai badi sweet,
Liabilities and assets come in Balance Sheet!

(sadly jis ladki ko yeh shayari maari, she ran away disgusted. I haven't been able to figure out why :| )
