$70 Bn net worth of line

$70 Bn net worth of line

This was first time in many ways…

1. US president being chief guest of Republic Day parade

2. The never before 15000 cctv’s in Delhi

3. The design of Narendra Modi’s coat with his name

4. and the best part was the billionaires and who’s who of India waiting in line to meet Mr. President!!

It may be not intentional (or intentional) but in one long shot, the camera captured a queue with a net worth upwards of $70 billion. There they waited patiently, the who’s who of India Inc to meet US President Barack Obama, described as the most powerful man in the world.

Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, Bharti Enterprises chief Sunil Mittal, Reliance Group Chairman Anil Ambani, Adani Group head Gautam Adani, Mahindra & Mahindra Chairman Anand Mahindra and Sudhir Mehta of Torrent Pharma were among the CEOs who were present in the summit.

Jai Ho! and Ho Jaye – Times of India day.in advertisement

Today TOI carried this advertisement of day.in. It instantly caught my attention. And then My Best AC bus was also wrapped in the same illustration. People on the road were actually turning around and looking at it.

The tagline : Jai Ho!! and Ho Jaye fits aptly for the India and Indians.

My Child’s TeeVee

Few days ago I was invited for the Whats on india Team to discuss about their new Initiative “My Child’s TeeVee”. I was first wondering whats is this Whats On India, now wondering about My Child’s TeeVee.

A small google search search led me to ” What’s-On-India is India’s first and only Television Guidance Channel”. Impressive.

Well I was (along with some more bloggers) introduced to Mr. Atul Phadnis, who made us understand the concept and showed the way it works.

What’s On India is a free to air channel which is like a Index to the Channel, more of a channel guide. It looks somewhat like this:

What's-On-India New Look Image

The bottom half of the screen on this free-to-air satellite channel is an electronic programming guide (EPG), the top right partof the channel alternates between genre-wise suggestions and what’s scheduled in the next few minutes across channels. On days when channels replace regular programming with special shows, the channel will be a one-stop guide to the various shows.

‘My Child’s TeeVee’ , India’s first show on Parental TV Guidance – Talking about the What’s on India Initiative My Child’s TeeVee, Mr. Atul Phadnis told us giving the examples, how the children are addicted to TV. A suprising fact, which Atul shared was that around 70% children watch “Pavitra Rishta” regularly, which is a soap based on good and bad relations.

My Child’s TeeVee is a 7 minutes’ show. It is an step to create awareness amongst the young parents about the adverse effects of excessive television viewing on their kids. The show will be having eminent child specialists talking about the same.

These doctors will discuss and give insights on the adverse effects of excessive television on child’s psychology and the emerging need for parental guidance in television. The show will also highlight some must watch shows for kids, and provide expert ideas on how to handle kids of various age groups.

This seems to be an innovative and concerned step towards children.

Ganga Behti ho kyun. . . Mississipi Behti ho kyun??

Today morning I was crossing Mahim station when I saw a middle aged man beating a young guy severely with his belt. I didnt know the reason, and traffic didnt allowed me to stop there. luckily just 10 feets ahead a 3 policemen were standing, I went to them and told about the incident. They ran towards that and caught hold of that man. He just had a doubt that young guy was trying to pick his pocket. The young guy was crying and pleading, he didnt do that, but he was beaten brutally. I had to move on, as I was getting late, but that scene made me remind of a scene in the song Ganga behti ho kyun?
