The visuals of crumbling buildings and the cries of the helpless people was bone chilling. The fast and indeed the furious river had claimed many a lives. I switched off the News channel but the sight of the devastation refused to leave my mind. It’s rightly said that Man is nothing in front of Mother Nature and that he has to bow down before Nature’s fury.
My heart went out to the people in Uttrakhand. There was a thought that constantly occupied my mind-- To somehow help those people and be a part of the relief work. And I pledged to find the solution for it. So when a friend of min... Read More
It’s instant, it’s implausible, it’s impactful and it has an incredible reach. It’s the Social Media. If online marketing is the future, social media is the fuel. My passion for this intriguing resource has led me to hunt for ways to improve talent in it. As much as it is important to identify this talent, it is equally important to constantly improve and improvise on it.
When it comes to an individual, a few followers on Twitter and some thousand subscribers on Facebook might look great, but when it comes to brands, making it big in this apparently virtual world seems like a distant ... Read More
Launch an online game for people to come and bet on their favourite teams.
And we bring to you UNFIX. The currency in this game is FIXINGS, and you do it all to reduce match fixings. J (Did not someone say, life is full of ironies?)
From Draupadi to Raj Kundra; Betting, both legal and illegal, both what’s yours and what’s not, both making rich and making poor, has always had a special place in the Indian culture. When the scandal around #MatchFixing, #SpotFixing, Raj Kundra, Sreesanth, Vindoo, etc broke, we at OMLogic were heartbroken.
It hit two things that we loved the most; Cri... Read More
I just want to receive wishes. Gifts wouldn’t hurt.
I want an International Men’s Day. There, I said it.
I am just envious of the attention that women seem to enjoy at virtual all these “days”. There’s Raksha Bandhan, Bhaiya Dooj, Mother’s Day and Women’s Day. Father’s Day, you said?
It is me, the Man who is NOT in a power of position in this day and age.
I once had a chance to be a part of a “multi-cultural” seminar in USA. The purpose of the seminar was to bring together people from various cultures. Attending the event were Asians, Indians, African-Americans,... Read More
I have been THINKING!!
Thinking about all that is going on around us. I am not talking about the rape case, the murder case and other gruesome crimes we have witnessed recently. I am talking about how we as a society are rapidly becoming oblivious to our surroundings.
I very strongly believe that the advent of social media (and other technology making communication"easy") has taken us away from everything else. We are living in times when people can have fully wholesome lives and hundreds and hundreds of Facebook friends (or chat friends or Twitter followers) without actually having... Read More
A guy and a gal decided to visit India from NY and Seattle respectively and wanted to go on a long cycling expedition to explore the never-seen India. Those villages, cities, towns that we miss while riding in the car. Well, Gillian Muessig, popularly known as SEOmom and the one I consider as my professional mom
For the first couple of weeks when Gillian shared this idea, I knew it wouldn’t happen. I did try to talk her out of it, but she showed me the light.
SearchCycle 2013. What a fabulous experience. We collected at 7am in front of the Red Fort. 15 members of the OMLogic Team, al... Read More
All you need is a 'Winning Attitude'!
At the beginning of 2012, someone told me that 2012 would be a rather bad year for me. No, it wasn't someone threatening me; it was someone checking my stars. Looking at what has transpired, I am not sure of how to look at it, but it sure has been an interesting year.
• I paid a lot of money back to some people I truly hate only because I had promised 3 years back, though they didn't deserve it. On one hand, it’s a huge loss. On the other hand, it’s OVER.
• I had a terrible accident, my Xylo flipped over, with 8 people on-board. On one h... Read More
As a kid growing up in rather humble surroundings in Delhi, we never had the place to keep a bicycle. I always lived knowing I can't ride a bike.
But then came 2012. January started with OMLogic working on two bicycle brands as social media partners and continued with me buying a 5-gear bicycle. It has put the bicycle in the forefront of my life for now.
And now, with 2013, I am extremely proud to associate with DLIN SearchCycle 2013, a biking event for the search engine community.
Gillian Muessig (@SEOmom), President & co-founder of SEOMoz and one of the best known personalities... Read More
Outrageous. Let’s demonstrate. Let’s destroy some public property. Let’s hang some people. Let’s ask for some heads.
We can't be okay with this.
It is very normal for everyone to feel this way after the gruesome gang rape of an innocent girl in Delhi. The question is: Will all this help?
Just 3 days back I was comparing safety in India vs US (Delhi versus Newtown). And here we are, a sad reminder to the world and what's changing around us.
My humble opinion is that it’s not about guns & not about police/security, it is not about lust & not about man's propensity for ... Read More
