A Common Man's Take On Demonetization and His Opinion On The Opposition's Drama - True Incident.

Today while I was sipping a hot cup of tea in Indiranagar, Bangalore. I just asked a question to the Shopkeeper about his opinion on the Upcoming Bandh which is on Nov 28th and also as a Common man, what's his take on AAP, Cong and few other politicians like Mamata and few more morons.

He simply told..

Translating to English

"These Bastards have looted the country in the past. And now they are just fearing to accept the fact that, they are going to get screwed due to the demonetisation rules.
They haven't bothered about the common man in the past, neither they have the principles to work for the good.

Yes there are few difficulties, however it's not like we are on the verge of begging. When someone is fighting for a good cause. It's better to support".

What surprised me was, a guy who wasn't highly educated had this kind of understanding and knowledge.

The irony is we have educated morons criticizing the good cause.

And yes the same common man gave this statement.
P.S - You can meet him in Indiranagar opposite to Bata Showroom.

True Story On Corruption Explained By Narendra Modi In The Vigilance Awareness Programme. Must Read!

‘People who do corruption are very creative’. Addressing the gathering Modi said, Politicians are considered to be the most corrupted folks in the society. He was against corruption and also said it can’t be present in the system and it’s therefore necessary to be alert all the time. While endorsing his initiative Digital India, he quoted - ‘Technology can play a crucial role in bringing transparency in the system.

A Small Anecdote from his Speech -

Once there was a Government Servant who was known to be highly corrupt and unscrupulous. The government had a tough time to replace him in other divisions fearing he would continue corruption over there too. After an intense meeting, few higher officials from the government came up with an idea of transferring him to the railway station. He was appointed as an officer where his duty was to make announcements regarding the departures and arrivals. Those higher officials assumed this would be the only way they could teach him a lesson. They thought he would mend his ways after this change.

However this guy had devious plans to his credit. In the first week, it went on good as he started making the regular announcements. After few days, the game started to begin. His target was the coolies aka ‘porters’. He started to make announcements like - luggage consisting one bag - Rs.5, luggage consisting two bags Rs.10, luggage consisting three bags Rs.15 and so on.

This plan deeply affected the porters as they couldn’t bear the sudden drop of prices. So the entire Porter union thought of meeting this officer and opposing his rules.

The next day when the officer was ready to start his songs, he could sense his plan working as there was a mighty group of porters waiting outside his cabin. The head of the porter union entered his cabin to blurt out their struggles.

Without wasting his time, the officer said - “Let us negotiate a deal and he signed off”.

Moral - People who are corrupt are very creative. And that’s the reason, Mr. Modi while addressing kept on telling, it's very necessary to be alert all the time to eradicate Corruption.

Learn This Step-by-Step LinkedIn Strategy To Leverage Your Business

The Targeted Audience/Connections

As it sounds, the very first step is to develop the right communication plan with the industry related to your line of business.  A new organization should select an advertising campaign which can target the small businesses in the beginning and look for connections which can match their requirements. For Example – If you are targeting to sell a Product or Software which is related to the associate level, selecting the small scale organizations with an Associate level title would be a good start. Grouping according to that will help you leverage your business.

Customer first

Clients are the best people to tell you what kind of customers fit into the high-quality genre. Searching them on LinkedIn according to their criteria is the best method practiced, so it looks like the client is introducing themselves. However, you do all the work for them. Once the customer starts expressing interest in your service, staying in touch again using LinkedIn is highly important and simultaneously doing the status updates and blog posts keeping the Client’s name in networking is a MUST. Sharing the monthly emails regarding the issues the client has solved for the previous customers and the results previously achieved should also be mentioned. Inviting people to frequent webinars can also create a good impact.

Sponsored Updates – Meet your Audience.

It’s tougher to create a good content and make sure it reaches your audience. It seems like an uphill task. However, LinkedIn Sponsored updates could be the best way to implement for achieving that. Though it’s like Google Adwords, you don’t have to distribute your content through Keywords, Search results. However, distribute it through your LinkedIn Business Account. Moving forward, you can set up your company page, create a business account and start conducting campaigns. And once done, targeting your campaign according to your audience is mandatory. For eg – selecting the followers, non-followers, relevant industries, perfect job titles etc.
Followers will anyway have an access to your account. So, it’s better to start focussing on the non-followers who could also turn out be your audience in future. However, it all depends on the content you create and how you set your goals for the same. Apart from that, creating a valuable content with compelling headlines, introduction and including images/media would be perfect. At the same time, paying attention to what works and what doesn’t are equally important and constant engagement with your audience is a must.

Content with a rich value can be easily reachable. However, we have to set few goals before doing it.
A). Help others how to solve their problem and do their job better
B). Establishing you as a Thought Leader in that space
Each criterion naturally leads to more business.  If you offer them a rich value, you are getting real results in return.

Going Viral

Posting on LinkedIn would be a highly effective way to market your service. It can reach a wider audience based on the categories chosen. It’s indeed a great way to improve your visibility in a way that would not have been possible on your own Website/Blog or even hyperlinking your Article with your URL. Joining groups and staying active is very crucial. Interacting with your group members and if you aren’t connected, using LinkedIn Inmail is a quick option. Having your own LinkedIn groups can add a higher value so that you would be the best person to choose the relevant audience according to your services.

Summary on your Section

The Summary on your LinkedIn Page/Website is the most overlooked segment. Since the characters are limited to around 2000, addressing the issues should be relevant and service oriented. A lot of people would choose your LinkedIn page over the website for connecting with you in person. Meanwhile, this would be the opportunity for you to introduce yourself to clients and customers. Including your contact information at the end of the summary section would be easy for people to reach you fast.

Connections and then Relationship

Before building your connections through networking, understand that LinkedIn is a Professional Social media platform. It’s Professionals connecting with Professionals. For eg- If you start your business, connecting with people related to your line of business is the first step and then once those connections are made, you can decide as how to nurture those connections to grow the relationship.
Image best Practices

  • While using images for your content make sure you post-medium – zoom pictures to attract more audience.
  • If your content demands a few celebrity images according to your relevance, start following it.
  • Cluttering of images is something you should avoid. Posting high-resolution pictures would look impressive.
  • Avoid posting clip art, brand logos and default images.
  • Usage of eye – catching colors to gain user’s attention.
  • Trying to engage with your audience like if you are promoting a video clip, try using terms such as ‘Watch’. This would potentially increase your audience.
  • Test multiple methods and images per URL, to find out what works the best for marketing your content.
  • Your title and the image posted should reflect a relation on your content in such a way that user has to arrive at the post click. So, every click you get is a quality click.
  • Use your titles and images to attract the target audience. For eg – ‘4 great tools for single parents’, ‘Women will love this new beauty product’. This will help you ensure that you are attracting the exact audience whom you are looking for.

It’s not enough to have a great website with a good content anymore. If you are looking for better search engine results for your business, it’s the time to have a look at how social media influences those results.
SEO basically follows two things, using the right keywords and the number of authoritative sites that links back to your content via Backlinks or Inbound links.

These 7 Reasons Can Tell You – Why ‘Google Allo’ Can Be The Next Whatsapp

We live during a time where innovation runs verging on each part of our overbooked plans. Today, the majority of our activities, pastimes and even free thought originates from what we read or see on the web, or which applications stopping up our now restricted 16 GB memory space, can offer us. These give us the most straightforward medium to speak with kindred people, even robots (a valid example Siri and Cortana) and tends to topography, since you can essentially be confronting your sister living abroad investing hours 'hanging out' like you would in your room at home. With all the up and coming mechanical headways and improvements in the field of Artificial Intelligence, our brains are persistent to make more for us, offering us most extreme solace and least exertion.

What's more, that is the place Google's new application 'Google Allo' comes in. It has every one of the oldies in the square sitting at the edge of their seats, since it is new and easy to understand feature will give all of them a run for their bucks.

While Whatsapp commands the universe of Android and iOS informing alike, and has a client base of a populace of a couple of expansive nations consolidated, Allo may very well be en route to take its spotlight. In spite of the fact that Whatsapp, with Facebook Messenger and iMessage hot on its heels offers a plenty of very propelled highlights that is unquestionably making life less demanding for the cell phone client group, Allo improves and presents a cluster of 'keen capacities', where it can basically go about as your own virtual colleague, that will give it its edge.

Despite the fact that Whatsapp followers may stand up against the new application, which is the second part to Google's new informing arrangement with Duo, and remain wildly faithful to the Facebook-gained application, here's an examination between the two conveying light to the likelihood that Google Allo may soon be "besting" (all jokes planned), Whatsapp.

·         The Google Assistant

The motivation behind why this application resemble having your very own right hand is on the grounds that it is one, though virtual obviously. In spite of the fact that Whatsapp has interesting components of sending over an area, document, picture, sound recording etc these are all spared records that are being shared by means of the application, which makes correspondence so much closer. Be that as it may, where Allo varies is that you could ponder about the travel time to a specific spot, or the best accessible flights to a specific goal or rebates on inns and you should simply sort in @google took after your inquiry or request. Before you know it, it will furnish you with every one of the subtle elements, joined by a progression of pictures wherever accessible.

·         In-message seeks

You could make supper arrangements or raving about the hot new tune to individuals on WhatsApp – every time you wish to share and trade data - you need to close WhatsApp (or run it out of sight, in the event that it suits your extravagant) and get to a nourishment/music application to duplicate the concerned connections/records to send in the talk. With Google Allo, you can simply sort @google and get some information about forthcoming eateries or the specific melody amidst the visit and it will give you the connections to both in the talk so it can be seen and imparted to your contact at your tact. So it's sparing the client the inconvenience of briefly shutting the talk to locate the important information, giving it on screen to both.

·         Programmed Responses

The application can give programmed reactions to messages for the benefit of the client. It does this through a product that contains machine-learning innovation, which shows signs of improvement at getting the client's most oftentimes utilized reactions with expanded use of the application. For example in the event that somebody sends you a 'How are you?', the application will offer you the programmed reaction of 'Good, you should' that you can send over. It might appear to be indifferent at first yet it develops with more noteworthy utilize and is certainly advantageous for the individuals who are on the run and are excessively caught up with, making it impossible to sort out a reaction.

·         Picture Recognition

Google has fused 'photograph acknowledgment' in this application, making it feasible for it to perceive a got picture and propose a programmed reaction. For instance, in the event that somebody sends you a photo of dusk, it will propose "lovely" or "goodness" as a reaction, contingent upon your most extreme use of either, from which you can pick the more material one and send it over.

·         Specific end to end encryption

While both Whatsapp and Allo offer end to end encryption for talks, the last considers 'specific end to end encryption', which implies that you can choose the reach you need to visit with in disguise mode, through its 'In secret Chat' alternative. Alongside this, the visit history will vanish after you have completed the discussion, contingent upon the close time frame you have set. On the off chance that you have exchanged off your termination period, the talks won't vanish.

·         Content arranging and more advanced features  

Google Allo permits you to design your content and send crosswise over bigger and littler text dimensions of instant messages, permitting you to increment or lessening the content size by sliding the send secure and down individually, an element that Whatsapp does not permit. It additionally has a more extensive exhibit of sticker-gathering and even permits the client to write on pictures before sending it over.

·         It has the Google brand slogan

Obviously, WhatsApp has been procured by Facebook, however Google Allo is an immaculate Google creation. The aim behind not fusing highlights like direct calling or video calls is to divert clients to other Google applications like Duo and Hangouts. It has the force of the sworn-by 'google seek' both inside and outside a talk box furthermore makes correspondence simpler and considerably more secure for the client.

In spite of the fact that Whatsapp is the current undisputed pioneer of the virtual-visit correspondences stage, there is plausibility that Google Allo will soon lead the pack. What do you think? Tell us in the comments section.

The Common Man/Humane Blunder

I strongly consider the Common Man as the main threat to our country over many atrocities occurring now and then.
The common man can never be happy or satisfied at the same time; they always have an issue with everything. It’s their frustration causing the damage. However, they don’t accept it as their ego intervenes.

They want the entire nation to function properly, the government, the politicians, the film stars and sometime they also tend to blame the so – called supreme who again is named different according to one’s specifications. Okay let’s not discuss that at this point.

The irony with these people is - they actually don’t bother to indulge themselves for the development of the country. It’s highly absurd to witness such morons who can highlight their patriotism only on their Facebook’s News feed.

Maturity is when you try to represent your country and make it proud by winning accolades. Not by focusing on the Loopholes and questioning other’s purpose of living.
You’re here for a Purpose, start working on that and try being the change. Stop being a loser by questioning every damn thing.

Great minded people implement. And the rest are meant to be ignored.

#Satire - Housewives

Whoever blurted out saying, ‘House wives are way lucky to be non- productive!’ I would say, take your words back as soon as possible. It’s not going to be the same as you think folks. There are so many tasks involved for a house wife, which a corporate or a working woman would never understand.

House wives sometimes go Desi playing Sherlock or the famous Hercule Poirot for instance regarding the brawls in their neighbour’s homes. They know everything happening at their neighbourhood, be it the reason of the latest argument in your house, your household songs, everything! You name it, they know it.

The schedule of them seems very tardy compared to the employed women. I always wonder why they keep grooming their hair in broad daylight even though, they own a 2 BHK apartment. However, they keep the curiosity alive looking for some latest gossip.

My grandma always used to advise me not to deal with delicate issues when maids are at home. She felt, that would cause a huge damage to the family reputation. Any guesses? Simple, even maids have shifts. And the main hitch comes when you put up in a residential locality. The gossips work faster than before.

It’s been 3 months I’ve shifted my house to a distant area, I can feel the change to an extent.  Or maybe, I have to keep my fingers crossed.

The Barking Studio – The Unwanted Therapy

After fighting a tough migraine from past 2 days, an article in the editorial column gave me a high.
A person who had been migrated from the Indian soil to the States; 30 summers ago had some potential content in his perceptions. It was slightly satirical, but the truth was bitter for those who had to accept it.

All his life in the US, he had not come across any such paparazzi aka media spoke – persons showing a valued content about the so – called Indian Government and its political achievements. India is a great country! An intellectual financial minister can transform into a dumb puppet.
# Tragically Satire

An old man seeking justice for his daughter, who was raped brutally by some atrocious thugs comes to the Barking Studio (The Media).

The Editor – in - chief has some certain problems to highlight those atrocities to the Indian society because the slots was already booked for another few months for the opposition government who had nothing to prove rather than blurting out their sincerity towards their greedy chairpersons and according to the media perception, these issues didn’t flicker their TRP grades.
Nevertheless, even the idiotic spoke persons had something hidden in their wallet; they were highly concerned about the unemployment of those thugs who was the reason behind the brutal rape incident.

The old man with no choice knocks the court door, but to his ill-fated destiny, even the court had some genuine constitutional issues. Knowing these people not turning the tables in his favor, he had to consume the pesticides, meant for the mitigation of pests in his farm. The chemical could not save his land though, but confirmed his ticket to the heaven.

Final Realization

It was a pleasant morning with little bit of sunshine. I had not moved out myself from my home from the past 2 weeks and it was insane to picturise my thoughts.

And I was out for a changeover. It took me several days to come out. May be I was in depression. I always played a rookie figuring out depression. It just had to knock my door. That's all I know.
I had no plans to begin with, I just rode my car wearing the same old pajama, relished some chats over a mug of chilled beer. Yes! 'I am depressed you Question mark!'.

After finishing my 1st, Sorry - 2nd beer, I gave a thought on the reason behind my depression. I questioned myself, Having a job where you recruit white collars. Why the f**k are you depressed?
Then my inner voice had to blurt out -
Do what you like or like what you do.

However, there was just a small change to end my doubts.

Written by - Vishal Aryan Komara 

One night @ Coorg.

It's 11.45pm . The German Sheperd had a squeaky voice. I guess it was hungry. Common, Summer guys.

I was browsing those wonderful writings by Hemmingway, where as my siblings enjoyed snoring to the fullest.All of a sudden, the door bell rang and I had no interest to play Sherlock.
My mom opened the door and it wasn't a moment which it ought to be. A perfect surprise at the witchy time.

It was the old caretaker of our estate who went missing for years. I don't remember the date, I guess 2 summer's ago.

However, I was confused for why he was being here at this time. Because, there were no clues about his whereabouts since 2 years.
The only question which irked me was - why is he back?

I guess that's his purpose in his life.

Blame Game Disorder

Yes. You heard it right. I mentioned Satire. I mean I don't like the thought of me being prisoned for the so called 'Freedom of Speech'.
However being satirical can be justifying sometimes, to an extent.
Being precise to the point as I always like, the serious disorder, the common human beings prone to nowadays are 'Blame Game Disorder'.

Blame the superstars, Blame the politicians, Blame the government, Blame the Country, Blame the Supreme for not taking care of people, for not being polite, for not being generous, for not being human. However, we tend to forget the actual you.
I would like to relate a recent example - The Drought in Maharashtra.
Why blame the actors, the government, the politicians.

Why don't you make the first move. The supreme has invested so much of time to create you. So, there has to be a little bit of productivity dammit.
Write, talk, share, donate and finally shut the f**k up.
The world needs doers not just people blurting out shit for publicity.

Be the change.
# Implementation always should be first.

Control Your Criticism

I seldom come across broad minded people nowadays.Yes. I'm pointing out that person who blurts out as a critic for every damn thing. Watch a movie, you have a problem with the actor. Read the news paper, goes mad about journalism. Works rarely but have a problem with your talented colleague.

The main issue here with these wizards are they don't see the brighter side of life. Once they start thinking about the latter, it's too late justify your right. The moment you realize your screwed.
However, still your ego has something to say.

Action and Reaction.

Every action has an equal reaction. Newton forgot the supreme's implementation on the same. You do a bad thing. You pay for it immediately. Like a cash on delivery option. However, expecting a result after a good action can never be possible. It takes time. Probably to an extent, approximately years.
You know why, because there's no answer. There's just a justifying thought of being faithful and patient.

Compensation of your good deeds would make its presence after your reincarnation can be the only answer which the supreme can blurt out with a sincere justification.

Poor Art.

The art gallery was full. Artists everywhere and me in some corner with a drunken attitude.
It was a gruesome session for the kid to be in a desert kind of atmosphere which had a scorching sun to boast of. A pond which consisted all the chemicals had thirsted the lad to water the same.
I was sure, the artist was drunk while painting the same. If not, the artwork wouldn't have fetched him millions of dollars.

Manipulative Marketing

It's simple, people need features. Not Quality with a Longevity option. That's one bloody reason Nokia failed to be the top master in the crowd. They tried playing honest. They were a package initially and least bothered about the featuristic add - ons. You come across tons of ads popping out nowadays focusing more on the features - One with the front camera, one with the battery usage, one with the high end gaming option etc

Finally, it's the manipulative marketing which wins the show.
Play Smart

- Vishal Aryan Komara 

Fictional Satire

I had always adored Shahrukh Khan as a good actor /Human. Yeah, he's got too many haters in his own country. I cared a shit about it. The one which mattered me was his hardwork which lead him to rags to riches. Yes you heard it right. Just imagine yourself sleeping on the pavement with 20 bucks in your pocket for your conveyance. And finally a Global Star.

Now precise to the point, when I was attending a training session with my boss in my last organization, he swiftly drove the topic towards success. However, my boss was an hardcore Salman Khan Fanatic. He tried plagiarising his idol for no reason. I swear I didn't know why? while talking and discussing success, he was questioning us for a while to get our opinions. One of my colleague quoted, Success is a lazy cow doesn't teach you much.

Boss - OK. That's good. You gotta dream big. Real big. And then he blurted out
Success is Mr Kalam, Success is Tendulkar, Success is Shahrukh.

Then I realised, Truth comes out. It's an instant effect you know.

The New Trend

  • Lack Originality
  • Zero Content
  • Talk about Legends when you can't try being them
  • Abuse People
  • Assuming you're right
  • Instant Publicity
  • Have a Crisis
  • Shout 'Freedom of Speech'

And and the same story again.

Observation is a MUST for an Artist

The hall was empty. It looked like more of a deserted place. Maybe, sort of a Graveyard atmosphere. Quiet and Peaceful. It was just me present there with the yet-to-find-out-the-meaning paintings hanging on the wall. Well, it was a tough task assessing those artworks. However, observation arguably could be the best tools an artist or a writer like me could boast of. It was a weekday, not many folks made their presence. 

The Observer is the Observed

Quoted by Jiddu Krishnamurthy, I had a similar experience dealing with those Artworks by Sir Hebbar.

For a Non-Painter like me, understanding the creator's point would be tardy. However, Observation has always been with me till date. It has taken the responsibility to deal with my gray matter. Fair enough. It's done well.

I just focused on few of his interesting artworks. Out of which, portraits such as his own face, maybe an oil painting, A picturesque way of showcasing the universe and finally the important part - a dead man carried away on a stretcher with few of his relatives throwing a look.

As I said, the hall was empty. I had no interference. I was astonished seeing his works, mainly the 1st part - his portrait and the last one. Maybe I could relate it. The man in both the works boasted of same features.

I assumed that he painted his own life or there might have been some connection. Probably he knew the fact that he would die soon. So he could have done the same.

To be continued.

Humanity is also a Religion

Imagine if there was just one religion. One set of people. One Country. No differences. We would all be fine. Isn't it? However, The Supreme had the same plan in his loaf too. It's the Human who chose the blunders. They started categorizing religion, people, caste, lands. Too much and too costly. Yes. It's indeed a hefty price to follow on. And if this wasn't enough to fill their plans, then came the superstions and the terms and conditions to follow. Basically it's just a trap. A Human Trap. The Supreme had no name to boast of, it was again a re-creation. 
God creates Human and Human creates categories. And the rest are the best bullshit stories ever told.

Written by my Father

You have always been my inspiration for Writing. For me, your the Hemingway who taught me to write short, your the Ayn Rand who taught me to be philosophical. I guess I can only gift you myself as a Writer.

One of his anecdotes which I could gaze a 'n' no of times -


The darkest hour is before dawn. I wished I knew that when I spent dark nights huddled shoulder to shoulder like cattle in a haystack, with street urchins, goons, vagabonds and whatnot. I, that is, from a highly respectable family from God’s own country, Kerala, in the financial capital of India, Mumbai, knowing not where the next meal would come from.

Success is a double-edged sword. I wished I knew that – when I all of 16 years, earned Rs 35K, more than what a top bank executive took home after 30 years of working the books.

Playing the blame game is the favorite pastime of every one’s childhood. I wished I knew that. Correction: I wished I knew the consequences of playing that game.

I wished I knew that…. That perhaps could make the best title for this book about Me. Or is it about We? The line between Me and We is thin. What happened to me, happens more often than not to all of us. We are like that only. Perhaps. Or maybe not. I don’t know. I am not sure. I wished I knew….
Where do I begin my tryst with life? With my childhood days? But I had none. I leapfrogged to adulthood, straight from school. Family caretaker: That was my designated situation when I graduated from wearing knickers to pants. Sounds interesting, but I would have preferred to be anything but interesting! I wanted to play cricket, chase the birds, get drenched, fly paper planes, and throw missiles into the pond.

My adult life then? I again leapfrogged. I was an early success, and an early failure. One day I was flying in the clouds, and the day after, I was in deep shit.

The roller coaster ride did not end there. I dabbled in business, lost and won. For once, failure came first, and success later. So I had seen both ends of life’s learning curve.
I wonder sometimes, am I destiny’s favorite plaything? At a ridiculously young 17 years of age, I had the world at my feet. Fast forward a little, and the role got reversed. I was down in the dumps. I blew it all. I messed up. I could have been the chosen few, but hubris, or whatever, hurled me to the doldrums.

Maybe it’s good to start at the end. A wiser, richer, quieter, and humbler Joe, a man of the world, successful, bright, smart and ….not at all sorry about the blotting out of his childhood. I have had my fifteen minutes of fame, but equally and probably more important, I have had my fifteen minutes of infamy. All the best things in life can evaporate in fifteen minutes of insanity. You never get to know of it, until you know. I wished I knew that….
