I am working really hard towards it, i need to strategies and prioritize and research alot. I don’t know how much it’s going to take but i know for the fact that i want to and i have to do it. So just wrote this blog to inform you people why i was not writing for so long? I am really sorry? Will come up with more matter and subject from next time?

I might click random pictures of everything that’s happening around mumbai and going to write about it. I just hope that i am successful and i do not land up in Jail for Clicking Random Pictures.

CorpoRATS….

I have always seen corporates running here and there boarding the local train on time… Reaching office on time… Catching the same bus on time…. And usually complaining if any of these things gets delayed or if they are an hour or to say minutes late saying “Arey bhai jaldi karo bahut kaam hain…. Arey bhai mereko office jaldi jaana hain bahut kaam hain”. Well we all know in Mumbai almost crores of rupees can be earned in a minute and lakhs of rupees can be deducted from the bank account… But what i do not understand is this even if one minute they are late they start cribbing about getting late and going into loss because of that delay of a minute… I being working in a media house personally don’t feel that if you waste or come late by a minute you it’s a big deal…. I mean in my office building the electricity had gone off for more than 12 hours because the generator had some problem but trust me we did not loose on anything and the work which we were suppose to do that day got postponed to other day… And nor did we loose anything… But in that span of time when electricity had gone in our building, i saw man corporates running here and there just like rats do and shouting at the watchman saying just the same thing ” Mera Dhanda bet jayega”… I have seen office going people log on to FB and doing all the possible time pass they could have ever imagined… So corporates what is it that you guys crib for? Your T.P. or serious work? I seriously sometimes fail to understand these Rats…

Work Environment or Money? Biggest Question

I asked my Branch Head today. Sir as you know i have been working here from past one month.. . You keep yourself in place of mine and think But what if you get a offer from a big company ready to hire you, telling you that you quit your current company and be ready to join us, giving you decent incentives BUT at the same point you know that the work environment currently where you are working is just superb with superb people around and your age is just 22 how will you make a decision? He said its easy himanshu if you are getting good paid over there and it’s a huge company i will quit the current job and be ready to shift as i want to experience more challenge and want to grow. I said ok sir but what if the current company is close to your heart what if the people around them are really sweet and close to your heart… how will it affect your decision then…. He said Himanshu first of all big company means big challenge means huge experience obviously the present company where we are working currently will always be close to my heart but you have to think about the future too… Will i be able to cope up? Will i be able to work? Do i have a chance in future? These questions need to be answered first and then the decision will take place automatically. I said sir you have still not understood and answered my question? My question was simple Will you choose Money or Work Environment  at a young age. Well i am confused to the core? I have still 11 months to go but what after that or even if i don’t have 11 months and if i get an offer from a big company what do i do? What is the main criteria? All this questions are just spinning around in my mind. The difficult task is to answer all these questions Logically.  Well i have left in on God he will do the best.

Politeness is the Virtue.

As you all know what marketing is in this Business World. And as a fresher i hope most of you know what exactly it is yes yes i know sitting at one place and making calls in order to pitch new clients. Yes i know sounds fun but a twist comes when you try to call ad agencies of mumbai just try and talking to their much irritated operators and much much irritated Advertising Professionals. Try to get some information about them and see how they respond. We strive for bringing humanity in this world well all these ad agencies are just the opposite of what i call ‘Inhuman Hub’. Yes the reason why i call them Inhuman is first they do not know how to talk to people because of their unnecessary stress. They think they are the world leaders or can say the CEO of the particular brand they are handling. What i ask for is their email id’s and they reply harshly. Well let me tell you you idiots from all those big Ad agencies like Ogilvy, you have been paid to handle the brand not to own it. Marketing Professionals who like me sometimes make calls and face this kind of situation, i am not saying all ad agencies are like that but yes most of them. My sir tells me it happens you can’t be polite when you work for 20 – 20 hours a day on one account, well obviously i can’t argue with my sir but yes i can tell him Sir i truly understand but Humanity and Work never blends and should always be parallel to each other so that a Human can be a better person and can go ahead in his/her carrier too. Well me being a Advertising graduate never thought that these ‘IDIOTS’ in advertising world would be so Inhuman. But yes it may be because i am not a part of them but mostly i think it depends on person to person. I am sure if i be a Ad Professional would never work with unkindness as its not in my nature and For all those advertising professional out there try to be little polite to others it might help you in future. Politeness won’t take out 100rs from your pocket, it just takes a few minutes to be polite to people. I want and hope that all these big big ad professionals read this and understand that they are not the kings of the world. Marketing is fun till the time these people don’t **** your moods. Remember this the person who is talking to you politely is doing it for a purpose and for a reason just like you. Even he is answerable to someone, I am talking about the Marketing part.

Guys i request all of you to be polite to whoever calls you be it wrong number, mobile service provider calls, or any company calls. Just be polite it won’t take much to be polite. Even they are calling you for a reason. Please remember. Talking through my own personal experience, as even i used to cut the phone down whenever i used to get a call from Vodafone or any other Contest or anything. You **** his/her mood then he/her gets all the negative vibes and then in turn he might be angry on someone else and so on and so forth. Try to break this chain.

Rickshaw Fare not Fair

Well yes we all know how is it when there are no rickshaw’s on the roads of mumbai on a weekday where everyone is rushing for work. Yesterday 22/06/2010 there was a rickshaw strike demanding increase in their meter which they achieved in doing so successfully. Yes the minimum reading in the meter which was 1.00 was costing us Rs.9 and from 22/06/2010 it is going to cost us Rs.11. I mean an increase by Rs 2. Well we can’t blame them everything has increased be it our Vegetables in the market from the Milk we drink. Well i am telling you my personal experience i took an rickshaw from Mithibai College in Vile Parle to Oshiwara in Andheri(W) these places are situated in the suburban part of mumbai. The actual reading which came on the meter was 39 i.e. Rs.38 according to the previous reading but today with change in price he took Rs 49 instead i.e. nearly 50 bucks. I couldn’t help it i had to pay him that much as he din’t have the new tariff rate card and demanded that much. I din’t know that the price change has been applied from yesterday itself. He just demanded Rs 49 and i had to give him. It seems that the rate card will be issued in next 2 days as what the rickshaw driver said. But just so that you guys do not get a situation like me so please pay the rickshaw driver Rs 2 or max to max Rs 3 extra than the normal fare. If they ask more ask for the Fare Card. Rs 2 or Rs 3 won’t make a difference but these days rickshaw drivers have become too smart and have become a superb con man. Remember ask for the Tariff or Fare Card and then pay. It’s someone’s hard own money.
