Thinker & Innovator

Whether it is coming up with innovative technological solutions for complex problems or innovative solutions for societal issues, Kapil is a thinker and innovator who not only thinks and writes but puts them in practice.  Kapil believes that those who can, have an obligation towards those who can't. While believing in this, Kapil is strongly against reservation or subsidies. For him, meritocracy and equality is the theme devoid of any politics or bias. While agencies usually implement available tools and solutions for various customer problems, Kapil thinks out-of-the-box platforms.

Capital punishment- It got me thinking!

Capital punishment- It got me thinking!

What is this fascination people have with living longer? For themselves and for others! Being alive and enjoying every moment of it, Yes, I am all for it. That's what I try to do always. But why longer? The entire debate around capital punishment got me thinking. Let me make it very clear for everyone that knows me. If I ever do something for which I should be punished and the choice is between death sentence and life, I will take death sentence anyday. If I ever get sick or something is to happen and I am vegitating with no chance of getting better, please pull the plug. If the chances ... Read More

Women Safety is NOT Women Empowerment

Women Safety is NOT Women Empowerment

Reservations were necessary (absolutely necessary) for providing equitable treatment to people across the  country. But they should have been removed (atleast refined) years back. Reservations are needed, anyday, to provide equal opportunity but they can't really assure equal treatment by mere implication.   Before we gauge further, let me tell you this blog is NOT about reservations. It is about women empowerment but the quandary remains the same. Last couple of years have been majorly about women empowerment and all the conversations about it. And I BEG TO DISAGREE! All we...

How to Stop Match Fixings?

How to Stop Match Fixings?

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

Men’s Day 2013. I want it now. Period.

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

Facebook & the primacy of human touch

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...

Gruesome Gangrapes: A Problem… Judicial, Social or rather Mental?

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

Why would anyone shoot 20 people in Newtown?

Read the news and was SHOCKED. Newtown is less than 10 miles from where my house in the US was (I still own the place but I live in India now). When I moved from there, I was clear that I was moving to a slightly riskier place. A place where it’s easier to get hit, easier to get killed. On the road and outside. That probably is still true, but I am shaken by what all I have heard in the last few weeks. That brings me to an interesting debate which has been doing the rounds in the US ever since a couple of shootings in 90's: “Should guns be allowed in US?” Here is what I have heard so... Read More
