The Real Fiction

All that we experience, our perceptions – sights & insights – seem like a surreal mix of fact and fantasy. There are no lines dividing anything anywhere & existence rides upon interpretations. This blog will surf, fly, jog, dive, swim, jump & at times even hobble through planes of experiences that will include poetry, protests, design, tales, photo-tales and whatever else is discovered & needs to be shared.

REDI to buy a new car? GO!

REDI to buy a new car? GO!

Buying a new car is no longer about going to the only showroom in your city and going round the only model you could afford and then deciding on a thin choice of colours. It is much more complex than all this. Cars from all over the world have literally invaded our country and so...
AI is getting smarter

AI is getting smarter

We all have a somewhat hazy understanding of AI or Artificial Intelligence and have probably heard of terms like NLP without ever daring to explore further. Well AI is simply about creating systems that add the function of intelligence. A natural progression will be to then have systems that understand language. It is from language...

An idea is an enterprise

An idea is so much like an ephemeral strand in a dream that most of us allow it to wave frantically for a while before we turn our attention to some other such wisp. Only a few manage to focus on just one strand, pick it up gingerly to give it a shape that the...

By the fans, for the fans

By the fans, for the fans We are a cricket crazy country and I remember being glued to the transistor listening to commentary for days together. That was years back of course… much before the TV made its entry to our home and certainly much before smartphones and apps appeared. Even a visit to the...
Good things must happen without a break

Good things must happen without a break

Since school I have been told umpteen times that time is gold or platinum or titanium or… well, something precious and never to be wasted. But the past few years have seen me literally wasting precious minutes finding the right app on my smartphone. ‘Hey! Aren’t smartphones supposed to be smart and faster?’ Yes, they...
Catching up on growth

Catching up on growth

Growth isn’t always about the panic that surrounds over-weight years as the world is full of those who need to grow faster and healthier. Growth is also not always about complex charts and graphs that a manager displays on the walls of their cubicles. Though in every form it reaches us, growth gets all the...

A powerful storage device in your pocket means you’re future-ready

Less than twenty years back when I bought my first desktop, a Compaq Pressario, a teenager from the neighbourhood walked in and said, ‘That’s a terrible waste of money, uncle. What will you do with such a huge hard drive. No one will ever need 3.2 GB.’ I wish this fellow is reading this post...
Fly me to the note

Fly me to the note

The internet sometimes leads you to really unheard of places and one such time was when I looked for the meaning of MEIZU. This search led me to a site about Kabalarian philosophy where an entire page was devoted to this word. It stated that anyone with the name Meizu will be pleasant and diplomatic,...
A playfield called CSR

A playfield called CSR

A playfield called CSR This happened ten years ago when I was heading corporate communications for a company and CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility was slowly attempting to penetrate our plans. The CEO said, ‘We need to project the company as environment friendly.’ The suggestions that followed included giving away hundreds of saplings during events...

Yep is the new magic for click addicts

There are some who are click addicts… no, I’m not one of their ilk because I let my fingers do most of the work whenever the laptop is switched on. I write. But as I said, there are some who love clicking. No doubt these click addicts must be finding some vicarious joy in all...
Landmine – The perfect soldier

Landmine – The perfect soldier

Landmines are worse than even the most unscrupulous mercenary sniper because it can wait for years and be just as dangerous. One piece of statistics says that Libya has landmines left behind from World War II and so even after sixty years they continue their gory vigil to trap the unwary. By the way, 27...
