Are we there yet?

For a long time, I’ve intrigued that what is the status of India, are we a developing nation or a developed one. I wrote this post Can India be superpower? almost a year and half back. I can not say if this is a logical extension to same, may be you could suggest me where this fits. This brings us to a major question, will we ever be a Developed Nation?

My Movies, My Way!

The greatest movie buff I’ve ever known is Nitish Kumar but for past sometime, I’m thinking of skipping movies at theatres because all latest Hindi movies come to TV within months, thanks to all Satellite Rights. Sadly they are useless because for profit they insert ads, chop scenes, extend the viewing time. Case of English movies, I guess I’ve watched all on TV around couple of times over & over. I’m traditionally a movie theatre person, but that charm seems to be loosing, movies ain’t cheap anymore. Continue reading My Movies, My Way!

OneDrive Drives me now

There are times when we feel if we had this or that document. I faced this a lot and put my data on cloud, as they say it.

Mobile wallet is bad for you son!

I’ve been abroad for around a year. Now I’m back and I can see a lot of things have changed. One thing in particular: Wallets. The kind of wallets I’ve been used to is the physical one. Enter PayPal & Google (I know these only), you enter card and/or bank details and you are done. Worked on Apple  Pay too, similar thing. In India, there is another league going on.
