Meri Gaddi Par Nerolac Paint

 The Advertising Agencies are accused of playing into the hands of enemies of the country. They create visuals targeting at changing the cultural traits of the population. 


Advertising as a part of Marketing's role is definitely to change the cultural traits to make the consumers feel that they need a particular item for their consumption. It is doubtful that they always side with negative forces and agendas. Some such advertising films are grounded in some historical shifts in the history of a country about which even the country is not generally aware of. Such knowledge is available with the intellectual and academic world of the country. 

In the 1980s, the FERA rules were changed. It allowed the Multinational Companies to re-enter India. However, as the story developed, it did not result in the resurrection of the older forms. They had actually taken decisions as per their business models, and new forms of companies emerged. 

The Goodlass Wall, a British paint company, had changed to Goodlass Nerolac. In the 1980s, the company entered into a collaboration with Kansai Paints of Japan. The collaboration helped the company to develop paints for the Japanese Car companies in India. As a result, many companies also used their product. 


The above-mentioned information is based on facts. Now, such a change resulted in increased sales of the company. The company's advertisement shows a character played by Ranbir Singh showing amazement that his car and refrigerator were painted with Nerolac paint. Probably, the scriptwriter of the advertiser had used the fact for making the story. It can only be authenticated by the company and the advertisement company. Behind all this, there was a paradigm shift which had taken place in India about which the general public is not aware. It is the basis of sharing this post.

Define Article 370 of the Indian Constitution

Define Article 370 of the Indian Constitution:
As per the Part XXI of the Indian Constitution, it is TEMPORARY, TRANSITIONAL AND SPECIAL PROVISION and it is Article 370.
It is Temporary.
It is Transitional.
PDP and National Conference should stop misleading their own people.

The citizens of India living in Kashmir with the ethnic identity of being Kashmiri must learn first hand the actual constitutional reality. They should know that who should be stoned for cheating Kashmiris.

Demise of a Publication in the UK



I was exploring for the titles of some books on the internet. I came across a book on Prince Felix Yusupov. I located it on Amazon.com in their kindle section. Prince Felix was the person who killed Gregori Rasputin. I explored the contents and learned about a publication by the name Endeavour Press of UK. The address of the website of the publication was mentioned there and it was www.endeavourpress.com. However, when I explored the link, I found the following message posted there which I reproduce here by copy and paste. I believe, this message would not remain there for long.

To whom it may concern
 Please be advised that Nick Myers and Henry Shinners, both of Smith & Williamson LLP, were appointed joint liquidators of Endeavour Press Limited (“the Company”) when it entered members’ voluntary liquidation (“MVL”) on 31 January 2018.

We would advise that authors retain the copyright to their material and as such they may wish to enter into a new contract with another publishing company, to re-publish their book(s) once they have been unpublished with the Company. The liquidators can provide authors with the necessary files to do so, if required.

Yours faithfully
Nick Myers

It is really a tragic thing to read that on the Amazon site the publication had made a following comment about itself. Read the comment to learn the irony. Can it be called an irony? Does it warn the internet explorer to remain cautious while browing the cyberspace.

The Comment by the Publication about itself.

E-Governance at its best under Election Commission of India on February 4, 2017



The elections in five states will take place on February 4, 2017. The usual activities of training up to Polling Station is presently going on. For the Election Commission, it is their day to day activity. But, being a part of this activity at a Polling Station, I get the opportunity to get involved in the activity. It is an occasion to get a peep into the e-governance at its best.

The election has launched an Application/App called RO Net.

Today it is January 31, 2017. From the App, I know where I will be posted on February 4, 2017. The names of the members of my team along with their phone numbers are available. The phone number of the RO along with his name, designation, who is the present Deputy Commissioner of the District is already in its place. I have to just click the icon, and I will be connected to the person. Similarly, the phone numbers and the names of the Supervisor, the local Deputy Superintendent of Police of the area, the SHO of the local thana are already displayed there. The whole electoral Roll, complete with the names and the EPIC numbers is there.

The most fascinating thing was that the ARO, who was entrusted with the task of imparting the training who had kept announcing that the place of the posting and the name of the supervisor would be provided on February 3, 2017. I believe the person had the update it would be updated in the App but somehow the person kept on making such announcement. Or it may be that she was instructed to reveal much about the contents of the App.

If this is the format of the e-governance which is going to come into play in India in the administration, then the day is not far off that the intellectuals and scholars who had declared India a Soft State, will have to revisit their conclusion. They had declared that India is a Soft State because Indians suffer from social and economic indiscipline and there was no near possibility that they could overcome this. With the right absorption of the technology in the Civil Administration, things can change. It is an example that this App is raising the hope that the change is around the corner.

But there is a doubt. What will happen to Juggad Technology of Indians?

अरे भाई भारत की जुग्गाड़ टेक्नोलॉजी का क्या होगा?

However, I will like to make an emphatic caution and express some doubts. While posting this post, I found that the 4g internet connection was not sustaining. It has taken me nearly 30 minutes to log on.  Thank god, the electricity was not interrupted. I had already written on my notepad and then posted it. I can not directly type on blogger. I had some very bad experiences when internet availability and supply of electricity ditched me. 

A lot has to be done. India is still a SOFT STATE.

Dismantling the Icons of Power

The October 2 is a national holiday along with Republic day and Independence day in India. This is a national tradition made during the long reign of Congress. That is other thing that common man like Munna Bhai called October 2 as the dry day. Now Namo has made it a Safai day. Similarly there are many other days which were celebrated during the reign of erstwhile government. Those celebrations were seen in the visit of some dignitaries to Rajghat or attending some cultural programmes. However on October 31, Prime Minister was seen running along with the citizens which was a spectacle observed in India for the first time. Now what will happen on November 14? In any case all the power icons which were raised earlier are being reformulated.

Snooping China




As per the report HERE, all your privacy is endangered by the electronic devices which you use. A highly important set of information and data are being transmitted to China and China knows about you everything. It is difficult to ascertain the veracity of this report. However, a credibility is imparted to the news by attributing to the warning issued by the armed forces of India. It is very difficult to save yourself from China. As far my information goes, whether you are using an American or a Japanese product which use and anything based on silicon chips or electronics, they are manufactured or assembled in China. Your cars which now carry more and more chips along with metallic parts are another sources of leakage of information. Now this is really highly fearful and shattering.

Customer Advisory Against Online Purchase



The online purchase is in news. The online stores are announcing 1 billion to 2 billion dollar sales. It translates into 6000 to 12000 crores rupees. That is a huge amount. Then there is another news that the foreign investors are putting in same amount of investment on online stores. Not only this, the courier services like Blue Dart, Gati etc are showing high profits and the voice is that it has been caused by the increase sales of Online stores.

However, in case of many original manufacturer of many electronic gadgets like computer, tablets etc, the companies are issuing Customer Advisory against buying their branded products from such stores. A typical warning reads: "THE FOLLOWING ONLINE STORES NAMELY ******, ***** INDIA, **** INDIA ARE NOT AUTHORIZED RESELLERS OF *** LAPTOPS, TABLETS ETC."

The issue is that they are not ready to extend the warranty for such sales in absence of invoices on the products procured from such sites. This causes harassment to innocent buyers.

Now the questions arise:
1. Who is to be blamed for such sales?
2. Who will provide protection to the customers?
