How Flipkart survived to be the "Sole Owner" ?

When Flipkart started as a tiny bookseller site nobody knows the potential of the company which not only promised but also delivers it, they not only successfully faced the challenges but literally vanishes the crowded market with their strategies. Its a talking point for many that how a off late struggling Flipkart managed to do a shopping of decent competitors in the Market ? What went wrong which let promoters of other competitors decided not to burn more and steam out from the Business ? 

Logo belongs to respective Brands

Flipkart, Snapdeal - Freecharge, Paytm are the startup glory of India but pronouncing a different stories altogether. Despite Paytm was the front runner to grab the demonetisation moment with both hand and getting continuous green signal from the Chinese E Comm major Alibaba, they still looking for either this way or another and or ready with any acquisition or merger and if its coming from the successful brand like Paytm then its a point to be noted for business observer.

Though these famous startups not has any unique concept but they did everything right so that their presence felt Globally despite limited to Indian Market only and tats how a Brand can manage to get a hefty investment from International Majors. Earlier days Business tycoons tries to put their hands on many orthodox or in non orthodox business out of which some used to work or some gets fail but they were always upto to try something new.

Path of Startup Guy is also same like Business Tycoon who took risk to start something new but most of the time with their own resources unless like Startup which expands only after receiving the major push from Investing Groups and basically this what the biggest reason of any Startup's failure. Not to be critical on Startups here since its a season of Merger with even Big Majors shaking hands with each other after found themselves difficult to survive.

Merger causes a huge layoff and in most of the cases with L1 Space to get clean up due to the "Performance" factor but in Startup layoff can be done in Senior Management too, imagine a employer hires you and make you feel that you're extremely lucky to get hire in the best of the best workplace and wants you to be committed and expect your talent limited to the group but can't assure your future in the company as well !!

Mistake can happen from the Senior Level and sometime people who was nothing to do with that mistake pays the price. No responsibility surely even if any Group admitted their error as neither they're authorised or either they're bound to answer. Flipkart as a brand settled in Market by doing nothing special where other brands spend Millions of Dollars just to spread the word. Flipkart most of their initial years was Pro Customer which led them make a space in every household.

In recent past Flipkart struggled Financially and their Valuation gone down which forced them to take some strict steps and to fix themselves in every aspect. They also lost the tag of Exclusive Site of many Electronic Brands which they hold for many years and their rift with sellers too gone high when they changed T&C for Sellers. But acquisition and connectivity with people was the key for Flipkart which increases the market share of the entire group and that was the positive for them.

As the argument is quite valid for a Investor companies that to earn they have to shell out money on a progressive company but with this they're also accountable to their Promoters and they have to show the graph in Green to get a "Green". Nowhere days Merger is the way to cut the cost for the internal operations though as a brand they still alive and contributing separately and with acquiring Myntra - Jabong and now Ebay India is a one such example from Flipkart. Strategically Flipkart also moved their Logistic arm E Kart as a separate entity which helped their entire group to shape up as a Big Unit.

Planning is one the X Factor in the business and if any business house looking to expand by acquiring then what're the priority of it ? And tats where the Companies set the different path for themselves which might Hit or Falls. Whatever the end result may be but that impacts the Market with Recession and End of Competition. This may help the Top Brass to get rid of running a tight business but they will left their trumpet blowers behind as Hopeless and Disappointed.

Poor EVM is now "Election Vote Manipulation"

Ever since BJP sweeps Uttarpradesh, a lots of tense faces with very heavy voice start pointing out on a "possible conspiracy" on EVMs to help BJP winning election with a big margin in UP. Poor EVMs never blamed like this before ever since they exists in India, yes its being blamed by non technical politician with their political frames and their frustration was understandable unless like mere political excuse from IITians turned politicians who learns to play technology on their entire academics more then a Engineer from State based Universities, their reasoning should be called as "Shocker" just like any student who feels that he or she deserves a extra marks or a job seeker who expects HR to give him or her a sure shot opportunity despite they never stood as per the expectation. Surprisingly Parties and Faces came to limelight thanks to that EVM only have no courage to challenge their power again but continue to raise finger on EVMs after their defeat. With EVM on center stage they indirectly pointing on a Constitutional Body which is equals to everyone and parties who're questioning somewhat proving the misuse of power on their regime may be ?

Candidates and Party who appears to be deceive in election should please with their effort though as atleast they haven't got Zero even after their very little effort. They should search those peoples from politics who got zero for different - different reason, one of the reason may be "Booth Capturing" too. Not letting someone to vote or contest for election is a kind of crime and atleast we're now moved away from that but still we're living in a era where Parties thinking to win any election due to its Leadership or Part time issue of "Freedom of Expression". Today's voter bought a change on themselves, they knows the deep inside of every voice and actual intentions behind it, they knows who's representing what ? Today's voter will not going to vote due to occasional leader who request for a change and only criticize the policy of current Government because they have to and tats why after taking a blow on this leaders who asked for a proof on "Surgical Strike" against Pakistan are now condemning Pakistan after they convicted a Former Naval Officer for spying and requesting the Government to bring the officer back safely.

During the assembly election few villages headlined Nationally due to National Media was exploring Uttar Pradesh to cover a stories (which we will get to see only during next General Election), highlighted their boycott on not to vote due to no electricity, no water, no availability of basic needs which is essential to live a basic life, they decided not to trust on anyone because leaders they trusted never seen in 5 years. To save the future of parties and their intellectual needs to start studying a basic figure of "Population of specific region compare to Voters voted to all parties divided by the Votes they received", it will be enough to understand the entire concept of politics rather then researching or understanding the concept of hacking in EVMs because rather then a EVM hack its a hack of a ideology which lost the election. High time for parties to appoint scholars whose leadership are unaware from ground reality rather then a strategic who draws few point to crack the election.

Challenging EVMs may be the only way left to hide the inability to win people's heart but disappoints those who won the election beating a "Waves". Because of this EVM tussle efforts of Captain Amrinder looks very tiny, when Party leadership offered and wanted him to contribute in National Politics he's only wish to won the Assembly Election and become a Chief Minister of the State for one last time led him left everything aside for Punjab. There was a anti incumbency in Punjab due to Akali was in power from last 10 years but Badals winning election proved that their constituency supporting them! Taking a stand is quite a tricky thing but it needs to be care of and if its impacting negatively then it will not benefit at all. Criticizing EVM despite of knowing the consequences and describing the consequences infront of Media will only help someone to create a meme rather then expecting a support. Better if Party and Leadership man enough to accept the defeat and start preparing for the next challenge as to win the election parties and leadership needs to become a "alternative" rather then advocating the alternatives of EVM.

Why Freebie Offer suit Reliance Jio more ?

At 31st of March Reliance Jio extended the date of "Prime" Membership for another 15 days it means till 15th of April any users can buy the Prime Membership along with "Summer Surprise Offer" which can be avail by recharging Rs. 303 or more, although at 6th of April Reliance Jio has withdrawn the summer surprise offer after TRAI ask them to do so but Jio guarantees the 3 Months Data for a complimentary basis to those users who already recharged with Prime Membership + the recharge amount of Rs. 303 or more. Jio may be forced to stop taking recharges of prime membership a week before the "promised" extended date but one thing for sure any freebie offer suits Reliance Jio more then their competitors.

Logo of Reliance Jio

In recent past subscription charges of different services has gone high after Telecos bought spectrum in very high prices compare to before in "First come first basis". It was a time when Telecos thought to recover the money since many small players came, shined and doomed due to irregularities during "Telecom Revolution" and hurt the big players automatically. Those days MNPs was in full swing and at one hand when small players was busying luring customers with some initial offers, big players was making people to realize that their Network and Infrastructure is the most trusted one to choose with.

Indeed the quality of Telecom Industry was degraded and mostly companies start sharing spectrum with each other to expand their business in many very little resources. The scene was not lesser like any startup where even Financiers and Builders jumped with a collaboration with Indian and Foreign groups. Reliance is newest in the Industry and got latest resources for their 4G services which can be easily tuned to 5G in near future as Mr. Ambani himself referred. For Jio the infrastructure is one time investment for next 10 years atleast. Jio is currently targeting only in 4G / VoLTE users who got it in their Smartphones and surely in near future as well. 

After Jio came into the picture Telecom companies start loosing money due to Jio's free model, before other Telecoms only making losses from their Tower business and now at this stage mostly Telecos are distancing their core business with the infrastructure one due to have no space left to survive. Reliance's strategy was quite clear with Jio, its not about only Telecoms but also about the services. Their investment in Network 18, a gradually looking strategic partnership with India's biggest broadcaster STAR INDIA was one of such steps which make Jio offering more sensible.

Other operators despite of being trend setters came up with their own desperate move of VAS Services and forced to follow the Jio's pricing with a unified recharge of Data, SMS, Call which made the Telecos to pay the price of it. The bigger challenge for other Telecos to keep the existing customer under their roof as its very hard to attract the new one. The reason Jio extending the free model by the name of "Complimentary Offer" due to their crucial planning on expanding the network and tat is the only area where they must be concerning on for long term. Data speed is the biggest problem in Digital Era movement and that will remain but any Telecos prime focus is the Network coverage and as Mr. Ambani in some of his speech mentioned his company's focus to expand the Network by 98% throughout the Nation.

No doubt after Jio, data consumption in the Country increased despite of cut in regular high speed data from Jio bringing down from "Unlimited" to "4Gb per day" to "1Gb per day". Internet connections gone stable after January 2017 compare to last year due to heavy usage but still in many places peoples are not getting the desired standards of 4G. Jio's freebie is the example of people's actual take on Jio paid. Jio surpasses 100 million subscribers within 6 Months after its official launch but tat mark is more because of Jio's free service. Even despite of entire March month, Jio extended the Prime Membership date for another 15 days by offering the complimentary free data for another 3 Months for free which forced those people to opt Jio who made their mind to ditch it.

Problem with Jio is tat they hardly able to achieve what they promised in terms of quality. Currently they're struggling in Mobile network and their Broadband and Jio Link are yet to reach in every doorstep, though currently they're in trial run with free subscription on. There is no doubt that Jio has gone extra mile with their subscription plans with no other operator has did so, other operators despite of being competitors with each other was united by the excuse of competitive conflicts. Indeed any brand establishes due to business only but sometime it requires to connect with the people. Mostly Reliance's concentration will be to continue the unified subscription at very nominal price and keeps on improving the quality as well as ready to face any consequences in near future from any side.

[Archive Blog (24/10/16) Jio aims to give LYF in Mobile Segments will it be succeed ?

Well Sept. 5th ever since Reliance launched their dream projects Reliance Jio plenty of talk started in the industry and socially regarding its impact in Telecom sector and in our life. The talk was from years now in a country where youths are in high numbers motivated even senior citizen to use internet and Digital India concept is helped technology to move one step forward which was being never been. Huge corruption in Telecom sector in last few years hurts the motive as well and pushed things backward over the years. At the end of the day when aim decided that to give something and pass benefits to the Countryman, people involved in a chair took a benefit of it and when it decides to have a justice with Country’s resources Companies though gave a investment with both hands but then the benefits is moreover become the business as you needs to pay as per the need and requirement. Examples are set that we needs to learn to pay for the service.

Logo of Reliance Jio

Reliance Jio came in a market by calling ourself as a 4G network no 2G, no 3G it means from Day 1 company’s stakes are high and plenty of challenges as well. Stakes to proof and maintain itself as 4G Network, challenges are to spread and push in a 4G Segments with lucrative offers, continue with a subscribe base after Free Offering. Jio whatever is now today is because of their Welcome Offer which is available for free after getting new connections. But does the current subscriber base will maintain the 4G when it get paid tats a question. Biggest reason why India never step high on technology is because our Telecom sector is not affordable and not technically sound to cover entire India. Companies may not have that much investments too nor the support from Ground Level to Infrastructure. We bought everything rather then building obviously we’re paying high for the technology but that amount never justifies the entire course. In a Country like India only Broadband can be affordable for the fact that despite its running from BSNL or Airtel Lines the investment of the company’s are in small segments which can be easily invested and maintained rather then aiming for the entire country.

Jio may have shaken the industry with its Free Voice Call and SMS with only one data recharge but as of now they didn’t cleared about My Jio subscriptions which consists of TV, Music, Movies, News and other Services. Ofcourse since investment has been made we have to pay for the service but that may not looks practically flexible for the subscriber in that case. Telecom companies did started their entertainment zone along with 4G network after following the suite of Jio Network but consumption wise it may not able to sustain. As subscribing these Entertainment Packs along with Data Packs to run those is not looks economical as Users will have two choices either use Data for basic internet or for Entertainment. Companies are not allowed to provide the Individual Datas for any service after TRAI dismissed the Net Neutrality nor can provide the Services for free. Although no one knows the future there might be the ruling which will help the companies to ran their purpose, policies and serve to the customers according to it.

Reliance played quite a big shot after launching Jio they launched their mobile segments as Lyf Mobile. Lyf looks to be quite promising with Jio as it used to buckled with Jio connection under Jio Preview Offer (JPO) tat time Mobile division taken a rapid growth but within a month Jio’s launching and Free Preview to get extended with other mobiles let Lyf customers and brand down. Not only people who had bought Lyf by considering for Jio connection start feeling the heat as any such investment on Lyf may not be worthy if others are getting the same taste with better handsets. Lyf Mobile is also nothing different then other available mid range devices, company may have giving people a confidence of 2 years extended warranty but it all depends of figures of investment over profit. Reliance Industry believing by the end of 2016 they will sell 10 Million Lyf brand mobiles tat is somehow achievable but exact figures can’t be touch as others too are there and launching phones with the compatibility of VoLTE which is necessary for voice call in Jio Networks also with great features. Lyf Mobiles may replaces small brands from the market but not big and famous ones for sure. Future of Lyf though will decides on the sales of October as Diwali is in Month end and every company is hoping for rocket height figures to blast some fireworks of happiness.

Jio having lots of roadblocks though getting clearances day by day from the regulator of Telecom Industry but actual test will start when it get paid. In India everyone looks for something extra like 4-5 years ago though in now its merely possible if some company start giving like this then soon to be go bankrupt. Jio has applied the formula of stretching the data connection in Welcome Offer where many subscribers can get a benefit of the offer though speed will be limited and not like a king speed of 4G. This is might a new way to decrease the input cost in high no. of subscriptions as less data will be allotted in high needs. Biggest aspect of any company to get success in the internet model is subscription price that whether its going to hit the consumer or not. Many companies after Jio announced its offering of 1GB 4G Data in around Rs. 50 start selling and even promoting in the same price as Jio but inside story is you first needs to shell some Rs. 1500 for the first time then only you will be eligible to get it otherwise it will not like a offer which is a Pro Consumer and Anti Industry.

Jio may not sound like they was in the AGM at 5th of Sept. even in AGM practically figures was little bit disappointed could be more once gone paid. Internet revolution will only come when we start thinking for the future. Prices of 2G Data is still the same though 3G Data price has been slashed but lesser price recharge consists less days so overall when you read headings title “Price Slashed” it looks great and attractive but actually terms and conditions are always applied on every scheme. 4G is meant to bring Internet revolution but not to stuck for forever. 4G was need of hour but policy makers and Govt. who’re running the country should always focused ahead, unless they don’t promotes the technology and clears the roadblocks of it nothing will be done and people of the Country will keeps on serving the old outdated technology with always in a higher price. Govt. operators are known for such mess they never found any way to challenge the Pvt. firms and never created any noise as well they only found to make a plead of saving from the competition. Internet revolution can come in the Country with pure intentions and focus towards future either of any get distracted Country will always deprived from what it deserves.

[Archive Blog (21/10/16)] Why Google always fails to deliver ?

Just heard the news that Google announced about its child project Google Pixel which has been launched with a huge expectation under Made By Google project has mentioned that next 2 years Google will provide the guaranteed updates which will help to enhance the performance of the phone. Obviously its a Google’s product and Google launched with the huge hopes in hand then whats the big deal about it ? Well we all know that Google might be trying so hard to conquer the market but they never stood upto the expectations of peoples ever in certain expect. Many experts even declared Google Pixel as disappointed start but unless it won’t comes in our hand we should always gives a first chance to every promising thing. But really the day Google Pixel launched many just questioned its purpose and questioned about existing Google Products like Android One and Nexus. If Pixel taken then the next center stage of Google then what will happen to Nexus and Android One Project and if both them will remain then why we need overpriced Pixel ? In a Indian market if you launches a product which cost you something around Rs. 60 K and even if you buy it then rather then you being called as a great buyer you might be end up called as Goof. Basic necessity in India is always comes first then anything even peoples who always opposed the Chinese electronic products are now ending up by buying it and adopting it since its more cheap and coming with most advance feature in a great affordable price.

Its about believing the expectations in some extent whether a product is able to stand in that or not. If you take Google’s strategy then they always fails to delivers, many in social networking sites of Android One owners is asking the same question that when they will get a taste of Android Nougat but let the talk of new version OS aside Google not even released the Security Patches of October month in that case what we can consider from this ? Surely may be Google is no more focusing on their own old dream projects may be if they passed the updates later then whats the meaning of it if someone still hold Android One phone then surely its no more intact by now opened as with custom ROMs but what for those who still hoping for the best of the device ? Well its not about blame game type of thing any company can strategies ourself with anything and at any moment they can concentrate with it but keeps on walking down forward and forgetting the existing innovation is not a good idea. No doubt changes are always good and need of a hour as well but new space should always being created if you’re not present. Google Allo, Google Duos is one such attempt of Google on which Google got the early success but no one knows the future whether it will be exists or new one will be launched. Since despite of Hangout they have built something which can be easily redeveloped & redesigned as per the trendsetters.

Not only on Google’s Hardware and Software innovations but their way of handling social media is too weird. Despite of one of strongest reach in GMail, Google not ables to launch the competitive social networking platform. Google+ still hanging here and there despite of acquiring the most famous Orkut which never got that popularity which it used to be without Google closed for more eyes on Google+, even despite of Google+ connection with Gmail it couldn’t deliver. At one point Google integrated every of their service with Google+ which make sure that everyone will have Google profile at the end of the day which was later highly criticized and later that move has been taken out but still its not completely. Now Google allotting users to have Channel profile in Youtube, your profile will be as usual connected with Google Photos if you wants to create Google Profile you can but despite of so much pushing Google still not ables to provide the proper Google Username and still listening the criticism. Google after acquiring Picasa and Youtube pushed those more as their Google service rather then giving some space like Blogger tat atleast in Blogger you can be someone which you’re not in Google Profile.

No matter you may Google to know everything around the world but to know about Google you might have to struggle. As mentioned its not that easy to understand about Internet Gaints from Internet you might bleed a lot from it as like hitting hard to get something even if its like the personal satisfaction only. Can’t deny from the fact that not everyone is perfect and Google is not different but fixing certain things may help them to contain their chase of dreams. Thinking from the shoes of users prospective is very important whether any policy, terms, pricing will ever justifying the purpose or not. Obviously think tank have to recognize the hurdles from success from day 1 only and not creates a room when panic button has pushed, bringing innovation is always welcome and it is always better then nothing but efforts and time are precious should not be wasted by giving excuse of experimenting. Experiments are require whenever there is something we can do to develop a entire concept for the betterment rather having same wine in old bottle with different tags. For Google they might get the sounds like “Yeahhh” rather then “Oooohhh Yeaaah”.

When we left some project alone then it means that probably we’re no more in a mood to maintain it but what about for those who was and is associated with it ? Technology keeps on changing in and even Google in next 2 years will build something advance which everyone will credit for but what about those who’re now own or willing to own Pixel or any other Google project which may not coming in the category of smart buy ? In a market money keeps on surpassing the new values, needs are increasing hence projects are upgrading day by day and covering more wider space of experiments. At this moment we need something which help to cover the existing with the new innovatory rather then it become a step to retire the existing one despite of its great presence with expectations. We needs to work on making Gadgets Smarter and Smart Gadgets to be Smartest rather then innovate Gadget, Smart Gadget, Smartest Gadget. There is should not be any space of categories as we needs every categories more equal then different then only development in innovation will be considered, Google needs to restrategies their think tank rather then being rejected on the hard work & investments of time and money.

The Undertaker's last fight in his "Yard" !! #ThankYouTaker

Its very hard to speculate that whether "The Undertaker" will ever retire !! Even WWE is not confirming in official statement but also not rejecting the Media speculation about The Undertaker's future yes they signaled about the last ride of the Undertaker when Monday Night RAW was went on the air and "The Voice of WWE" Micheal Cole strengthen the rumors. Mark Callaway best known as his in ring persona "The Undertaker" kept his dominance in the Company from last 27 years. There is no and there may be no guy like Undertaker who will fill the empty of "Fear" in the company now and if anyone believes about Bray Wyatt here then his presence may be felt as a creepy guy not as a "Man of Darkness". When I wrote "The Undertake: 25 Years of Dominance in WWE" on the eve of Undertaker's 25 years in WWE itself, I discussed about his character as a perfect PPV guy, you will find very few guy at the age of 52 to Wrestle and not only Wrestling but Main Eventing a Super Show called "Wrestlemaina" with something around 70+ thousands on hand. The match was also never promoted as a Retirement Match of Taker but was a slight hint only, imagine the reaction of the fans if it would !! I can't say how much this match will help Roman Reigns because he's not some random guy in the Industry he belongs to the legacy of "Anoaʻi family" which gave Legends, Hall of Famers to the industry including every youngsters favorite "The Rock"- Hollywood's most successful actor in current era. Fans of Wrestling now only wants to see Roman Regins to become "Heel" on the cost of Taker, its upto the creative team, writers and Roman to live up on the Fans expectation.

After the lost which Undertaker himself invited, we saw different side of Taker which is not "Dead". After the Match he wear his iconic gloves, hat and trench coat back for the one last time probably, to keep all in the ring to indicate that he's leaving. He took the much deserving appreciation from the fans before to break his character for the first time when he kiss his wife Michelle McCool. Its no secret tat he married to former Divas Champ who is quite active in social site, used to post photos of her Husband as well, but Taker himself never came out from his "On Screen" personality, neither he's in Social Networking Site nor he's in Media its like he himself love to be The Undertaker more then Mark Callaway. Undertaker gave WWE more then anyone can expect from him, indeed after "End of an Era" Match Taker would likes to retire which was also featuring Triple H as his opponent inside "Hell in a Cell" with special guest referee Shawn Michaels who had bit of a rivalry with Taker year before is also a good Friend of H. But WWE make sure to utilize Taker for a long when they bought "Part-Time" contract to deal with many such iconic superstars who can't travel for a regular basis but can impact the business with their brief return.

After 2012 Taker appeared in 5 more matches, before his match against CM Punk was good for Punk's buildup then for Taker in Wrestlemania 29 but death of Taker's "On Screen" father Paul Bearer help the storyline to gone filthy and later the match became good for both as Taker was fighting for the "on screen" revenge of disrespect and CM Punk who in "reality" missed the Main Event of that year's Grandest Stage. Next year Taker was booked to loose against Brock Lesnar to end the longest running successful streak in Wrestling history which gave shocked to many including Taker when he first hear it from the Boss Vince McMahon. Many never thought this would ever happen but it did, McMahon saws a bigger picture after the outcome of the Match. That year Wrestlemania was first time on air in WWE Network and Brock Lesnar at that point was the perfect choice for the company's future prospective. Lesnar went on winning WWE Championship and Universal Championship and is a part of small feuds in his brief appearances. That year Undertaker was for first time looks like he catch-up his age, he got concussion during the initial part of the Match, he was escort out from the Ambulance after match to the local Medical Facility.

Ending the streak by the hand of Brock Lesnar is a clear cut business decision as Brock is a big name not only in WWE but also in MMA background after his first stint, letting Brock to win the 21 years investment is a big price for Brock Lesnar's career. After the streak Undertaker came back again to sell some big PPVs like Wrestlemania 31, Summer Slam 28, Hell in a Cell 2015, Survivor Series 29, Wrestlemania 32, Royal Rumble 29 and his final appearance in Wrestlemania 33. These appearances may call Undertaker's loyalty towards Vince as well since time after time report used to broke about Undertaker's health, some photos in the net of Taker with his friends and fans are suggested that Taker is start using crutches which indicated that he's in no position to take hard bumps and not in his physical best like old his days. Undertaker is a creative guy and took ownership on whatever he accomplished with his character. He's not a Wrestler only with a physique of 300 pounds, something around 6 foot but his great with a promo and the icon he possess. He opted a phenom character in his maximum career with different attires along with Mohawk hairstyle and different styles of beard. During late 90s and Early 2000 he opted a character a best suited on his real life as "Americal Badass" used to define as Cool American guy who rides his stylish custom made bikes.

Its not wrong to say that he's no lesser then a perfectionist in this business who has a great passion and admire towards Wrestling which kept him active in the business for so long. Undertaker used to be a great leader in a locker room as well and guy like him for any young talent is not less then a blessing in disguise. Undertaker may have or may call his day but one thing for sure in whatever age he will be whenever he's require to cut a promo he will do with full authority. He's a part of some memorable matches and crazy stuffs along superstars like Mick Foley, Kane, Triple H, Edge, Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar, JBL and many other in different - different era will always be remember. Mick Foley and Kane made a most of the career with Taker being a Partner or "On Screen" Brother and even as a big rival. Undertaker throughout his Wrestling Career may not win many World Championship, may not Main Event many matches but he always was a Franchise player who keeps the one end of the PPV with him. Deadman may be more Human now but his dominance in-front of Wrestling Fans will never "Rest In Peace".

Team India: The World No. 1

We saw many era of Indian Cricket, right from Lala Amarnath to Mak Pataudi, Kapil Dev - Sunil Gavaskar era to Sourav Ganguly - MS Dhoni era. Indian Team was "Best in the World" during MS Dhoni's captaincy but throughout his regime we never saw the performance like we witnessed in Virat Kohli era, statement may looks censorial but unfortunately its a fact. This Team got flexibility which proved in the entire season which had long series of 4 Tests or 5 Tests along with Limited Over Games. Start from Zimbabwe series at June last year "Men in Blue" was consistent, yes they fall short in some games but mostly they utilizes their home condition or their opponents of away games quite well. We saw many stars arise during a course of 1 year on different format, at the same time many establish players like Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan lost their spot followed by injury and poor run with the bat. 

Photo Courtesy: 

During this season we saw many surprising comebacks like Gautam Gambhir and even Parthiv Patel who returns to National side after 12 years !! These surprised comebacks are made only due to concern in opening department which is yet to overcome, India struggled and still struggling in opening spot and tats why Team saw most number of opening pair in the particular season. Opening spot are always known as a back bone for the Team but the concern not pinned the most because team got dependable batsman like Cheteshwar Pujara who proved to be the next Wall of Indian Team after scoring 2000+ runs in this season, even glamour boy Virat Kohli's bat sparkled this season with back to back 4 Double Centuries against Windies, New Zealand and against England twice. His bat may be was quite against Aussies but he was equally aggressive and led the side the way Aussies likes to play Cricket.

Input by BCCI as broadcast in STAR SPORTS

In Modern Era Cricket, Teams become flexible and selecting side as per the formats. Their commitments are increased too since Boards are now concentrating on revenue factor hence increasing more Home Matches despite of FTP schedules. When BCCI announced such a big home series most of the Cricket thinkers start doubting on how India will able to manage such odds which they never faced. Anil Kumble made a valid point after conclusion of 4th Test against Australia tat he always motivates team to focus in sessions rather then in a particular Test Match or in the Series as its all about a Mental game, India some how survived the 1st Test between England in Rajkot when visitors took 7 wickets in 50 overs and had England declared 10 more overs ago then we must have a different Result of the series. Same way when India had a healthy lead of 152 in 2nd Innings it looks like the results is possible but some how Aussies skip through with their brilliance from the bat against our Bowlers tired effort. Although India knows the taste of victory in flat turf when they beat England in Chennai Test but scenario was different in Ranchi Test.

During the start of modern day cricket we saw partnerships of Akram - Younis in 90s then Warne - McGrath era in 20s which used to be a sheer dominance from Pakistan and Australia respectively, against every Team of the World. Indian fans honor to witness the same dominance by Ashwin and Jadeja during this period of time. They equally shared the Spot of World No. 1 Test Bowler for a Week. After Kohli took over the Captaincy, India saw 19 Consecutive Test Wins and the succession of Test Win started from August 2015 against Sri Lanka. Indian Cricket was facing difficult time when India lost their last Test before the mammoth series of Victories before loosing to Australia, Board's Politics, IPL, Failure of Away series was one of the reason people was moving from the game they loved the most. I wrote very critical few words after that match "Does India looking on India's Performance ?" though during this entire time duration Team played in Home Conditions and won Series in Sri Lanka and West Indies respectively.

But few matches specially against England where we thought that results will end up as Draw, India pull up the victory in Last few Sessions of a Test Match and this is why I wrote about 4 Day Test Match when "Cricket Intellectuals" and then "ECB Chief" starts advocating about 4 Day Test Match, since Ashwin and Jadeja anchor India's victory at a 5th day when result looks to be impossible. Tats why for the first time in history 2 bowlers of same team at the same season was in the all time list of leading wicket ticker. Ashwin made a history on bowling more overs then anyone in the past as well which also proves the importance of Ashwin infront of his Captain and his Team. During this season India finds another diamond known as Umesh Yadav after Mohammad Shami was out most of the matches this season due to injury. Umesh Yadav played a important role to win the last Test against Australia shown his aggressive bowling, his mental strength and his fitness which allows him to play 12 Matches in this Home Season.

Current Indian Team in Test looks to be quite flexible with Batting and Wicket Keeping, at the same time it lacked seriously in Bowling department despite of some outstanding performance apart from Ashwin, Jadeja and Umesh Yadav. Test Cricket is not only scoring big but also a kind of a fightback like Chetshwar did against Australia in Ranchi when he scored a Double after consuming 525 Balls who also broke a previous record of Rahul Dravid which happens to be Pujara's idol and was "Wall" of Indian Cricket for many Years. KL Rahul, a big find of Indian Cricket despite of Shoulder injury was a part of some outstanding knocks after avoiding some big shots in later innings as precautionary basis though in many occasions he found throwing his wicket when he had a chance to score a big one.

When Opening was a concern for the team, Karun Nair created a small doubt in Team plan by scoring Triple against England in Chennai. This is probably a rarest incident in World Cricket when a Triple Centurion has been dropped from the very next Test Match against Bangladesh and Rahane feels the pressure during his innings of 80 odd runs because both Coach Kumble and Captain Kohli defended Rahane individually before the only Test and who knows the same Rahane will be ask to captaining the side in a "Decider". This team has broke many previous records and set a new ones, they got legacy to maintain and some revenge to take. Nair ended a drought in Test Triple from a Indian after Virender Sehwag, India beat England in India and maintain the record against Aussies. Now how they will do outside is still a question mark but they already made a point that its their fortress and its not easy to beat Team India in India and this Home season is a kind of a statement they got for the visiting Team from now onward.

WWE Wrestlemania 33 Prediction

Its quite a tricky thing to predict that what WWE going to offer in Wrestlemania 33! As most of the thing nowhere days are not as per the Fans, specially after launching of WWE Network Fans of Old School Wrestling are disappointed, WWE is now looking for contents they don't wants to end the fun straight away they want their fans to stick around with WWE for whatever the want.

Logo of Wrestlemania, belongs to WWE inc.

Before WWE has a plan for Smackdown Women Championship Match in Kick Off show since their stakes are quite high in Raw Women Championship Match and with this we might see Nia Jax to be the next RAW Women Champion as well and then in upcoming days we might see feud between Nia and Charlotte for the title, indeed we may witness Rock to make a appearance as well in the Show with that.

Now Nia is Maternal Cousin of The Rock, he's also a Paternal Cousin of Roman Reigns and Uncle of Jimmy Uso with whom Naomi got married who is also in title hunt, looking to reclaim her Smackdown Women Championship in her Home Town we might see Wrestlemania to "Glow" and tats why Smackdown Women Championship is now in Main PPV rather then Kick Off as announced earlier. But we may see Naomi to drop the title again in the following Smackdown Live who knows it !

Since Cruiserweight Division is more like filling the air time of Monday Night RAW it doesn't matter the outcome of the Match since there is no one in the Division who actually in compare to Austin Aries and its totally upto Austin Aries till how long he wants to be the face of 205 Live, hence best wishes to him if he's the new "King of No Ones".

Now since André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal is happening in Kick Off Show hence its again a not to expect match otherwise like Baron Corbin last year Shinsuke Nakamura could have a opportunity to make a grand debut in a Main Roster but lets see what WWE has planned for this Match and for Nakamura.

RAW Tag Team Titles are going to defend in a Ladder Match and I believe that Sheamus and Cesaro is winning it and may be going to wrestle against some surprise entry of Tag Team Division or if not ! then also Sheamus and Cesaro has very good memorable performances with Ladder Match in a past.

WWE presented quite a weak storyline for Baron Corbin vs. Dean Ambrose or if say there is no storyline at all, its like a match which is requires to happen in Wrestlemania for the sake of the biggest PPV of the Year which needed Intercontinental Championship to be defended. 

Chris Jericho's latest run is quite long then expected, Wrestlemania matches for Jericho was like giving the opportunity to the new guys. His last few matches was Fandaaaaango's Debut, Aj Styles's 1st Match in Wrestlemania and now Kevin Owens. Loosing to Fandaaaaango must be hurting to Chris and more then him its WWE who wanted the Fandaaaaangoing stuff but unfortunately it all blew away and Jericho's lost gone into vain. Chris Jericho is now committed to Fozzy which will be touring next Month May, we may witness Jericho to drop the title against Owens and say good bye from Wrestlemania itself like he did loosing to Fandaaaaaango years ago.

Match of Aj Styles vs. Shane McMahon is just another match, Aj Styles may be improving his Wrestlemania record but with Shane McMahon, WWE getting a part time Wrestler who's win or lost doesn't matter since he's a Corporate guy who believes to settle thing in "Square" ring. McMahon may not be there in WWE for a very long time but his matches will always infront of his fans to define legacy of Shane McMahon wrestling.

John Cena - Nikki Bella vs. The Miz - Maryse ! any expectation from this match ? Need not to tell who will gonna win but yes post this Wrestlemania we might be engaged with their new status of Love Life and all those stuffs except Wrestling.

Seth Rollins vs. Triple H, a Non - Sanctioned Match is quite interesting to me. Seth Rollins is injured not 100% fit, Triple H will be playing some dirty games but I believe some surprise brief returns during the match may be one of those is Mick Foley. But overall how WWE wants to finish this match will be the key, since Seth Rollins was a part of shocker finish of Wrestlemania Main Event 2 years ago. 

Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt for WWE Championship is another weak storyline from SD Live and it seems like it will not end or settle down in Wrestlemania but the feud may continue till the advance stage in upcoming SD Live PPVs hence match could have a surprise win for Bray Wyatt.

Ever since Goldberg returns to WWE he proved himself a Knockout guy who finishes a match in less then 2 Minutes, I think the time duration of match will remain the same but this time we may see other guy Brock Lesnar to dominate and beat Goldberg for the Universal Championship. Brock Lesnar could appear in another PPV before to drop the title but I don't think stretching a brief return of Goldberg is a best decision.

Now The Undertaker vs. Roman Reign is bit tricky match, may be its a Main Event of Wrestlemania too. Undertaker have to loose the match to retire and Taker has nothing to loose as his streak is already broken at the other hand for Roman it will be a career defining moment, people don't like Roman is a good guy so let it be a heel, a big heel dog who takes whatever he want.

Overall the card is long and to fill the time slot of 4 hours we might see some matches short after the inclusion of Smackdown Women Championship in Main PPV. Again people don't care much about it if the matches and the Event is something excite with. People also know that WWE is now a Content Provider and its not that every one will be happy infront of pure business but yes can wish whatever they missed for next Wrestlemania.

[Analysis] What made this 5 State Elections Results special ?

11th of March 2017 was kind of a historic day in Indian Politics as in this day 5 States Election results was announced, the reason it was most important because UttarPradesh, the biggest democratic State of India was on the line and wave from UttarPradesh decides on which way Indian politics will move on. The mammoth support to BJP in UttarPardesh and Uttarakhand and despite of people underestimated Congress they managed to won Punjab and leads in terms of votes in Goa, Manipur. 

There was a huge anti incumbency in Punjab for last 2 - 3 years was enough to proof that a change is coming, Intellectuals may have figure out wrong may thought that history of Delhi will repeat in Punjab but Punjab is not Delhi and such naive analysis is nothing more then a propaganda which make Governments in paper and not in reality. Election was kind of formality in Punjab to determine who will be the next Chief of the State, if Congress is back in Punjab then its due to Captain Amrinder Singh's effort and the way he led the entire campaign from the front also the way he worked constantly in Punjab's grassroots and made sure that his party returns. Interesting thing in the results was that Captain Amrinder lost in "Lambi" constituency against Former CM Parkash Singh Badal though he won from his conventional "Patiala" Seat which ensures him to return as a winner for his party to takeover the State for the 2nd time, Former Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal too won from "Jalalabad" and his Brother in Law Bikram Singh Majithia won from "Majitha" indicated that anti incumbency may be was there against the Akali + BJP Government but people also voted in the favor of that leadership. It will be now quite interesting to see the "Battle of Punjab" now.

When take on Goa's results it may not gone to the favor of BJP but its due to their leadership collapse and not against Government, their allies partner and RSS ideology gone against the defending party, all this started when Manohar Parrikar moved to Central Government as a Defense Minister and in his absence party struggled themselves and lost the balance on peoples expectation, for Goa as well intellectuals of Delhi thought for a wave like Capital of India but it was not more then a passing shower which was not even considered. Similarly in Manipur though BJP did well but there was no serious anti incumbency tats why despite the number was short Congress still managed to remain the number 1 party of the State in terms of the Vote and interestingly people extended their support to Ibobi Singh who won the election with a good margin but his opponent "Iron Lady" Irom Sharmila managed to get less then 100 votes which is lesser then "Nota" votes of Thoubal constituency who recently joined election after her 16 years long fight for AFSPA, no doubt its a heart breaking but its a sad reality of Indian Politics as if the fight was in Delhi not in Manipur then she may not only won the election but might have sweep the State as well.

But the big headline grabber of this "Mid Term Election" was UP Election, as for the first time in History out of 403 seats, BJP + able to win 324 seats which is a kind of single largest victory ever. This is also a first time when BJP won UttarPradesh and Uttarakhand after a State split, in Uttarakhand as well BJP able to win 57 seats out of 70 which is again a record as no party till now able to cross more then 36 seats. Indeed results gone against Harish Rawat and his Party who literally was facing leadership crisis, many intellectuals may have giving reasons for this defeat but the fact which matter is that Harish Rawat claimed the Government when himself was overshadowed in a party and he was very close to leave Congress who later fulfilled his wish but lost other leaders from the party. 

When I wrote "Why winning in ground is so crucial to win Assembly Election !!", I specifically stress on a point that Elections can't be fought in space, without knowing ground reality and sensing the direction of wind if parties jumped to fight elections with too much of dependency on Strategic Manager who're basically a management company and nothing else then they will be Knocked Out straight away, Today's voters are changing they wants Food, Employment, Education, Home, they less care about if someone trying to define the new logic of war, want history to be written in a new way, all these are a secondary issues for many and may not be important for most of the people in India, they want basic necessity to be filled prior to all. Tats what this election defines the most, no matter whatever the party is if leadership talking about ground's issue then they will be accepted.

This particular election was also a eye opener for Media who tries to change the mindset of a voter by manipulating and twisting news, even if the Media was not allowed then Social Media was used. During Exit Polls many Intellectuals was busy making their favorite party's Government. Most of the Studio veterans was claiming to have a visit in the polling States and shared their observation in TV less then 48 hours from the Election Results but they must have hide the fact that their focus to cover the State was limited to Party offices and few lanes and not more then that. I believe that soon Exit Polls will be known as more subjective and nothing in reality, it already lost the confidence years ago. It will be consider like playing a democratic game in paper because in Ground actual vote can't be disclose and shouldn't be disclose and tats why its a math for psephologist to be solve and tats why its not a everyone's cup of tea. 

This mandate can't be consider against any party nor to favor any face, whosoever talking about ground zero and displays the strong leadership has won. Its not a rocket science for anyone to know who is best for the State, party who's unitedly standing or a party who have a internal problems to sought out !! I believe any secular party can form Government anytime post Elections or Post forming Government as well because they always be united for 1 thing no matter their common minimum program matches or not. Forming a alliance and tat too before Election and launching Manifesto post 1 or 2 phases doesn't matter enough because if faces are staggering just before the election then what would be the fate after mandate. This election is also against generic politics as candidates are considered as Indian first rather then from some community, this shows the clear picture of voters and the pattern of election which is completely changing. Its a new era of politics and voters are not hesitate to take a stand either in the favor or against, tats why future of democracy going to be more bigger and better and as a festival it will be more sweeter then ever before.

Why some Startup blooms and some dooms !!

Not critical here with Startups, I myself a big fan of Startup and believe whenever something new from small is launching in a market we should have a eye on it and should not underestimate it. I salute some bold decision from the new age mindset who build "Nothing" to "Something" which later acquires another "Something" to become "Next Big Thing" or did become "Next Big Thing". If Startups are lucky enough then they rocks the market soon otherwise dooms without sensing anyone. In recent past specially in Metros where the level of Education gone quite high along with motivations saw many competition on the field offering best of best in the market. since Metros are favorable for Startups because of its opportunity also it helps to get desirable investment favors easy to do business in that environment. Investments are always a big key for any company and to keep getting the investors confidence Startups tries something which may favors them or go against them. In recent past Startups flutter either due to negativity against the brand in the Market or due to Investing Group start loosing confidence from the brand. Not only small groups but now even big giants and their top brass are busy pulling chairs from each other but tats a legacy fight between legends and with startup it indicates to become next "legacy".

Its no rocket science that only gutsy people manages to start a Startup, who dreams something big but the problem with today's gen is with too much competition at the same field and most of our Startup are either struggles for funding or acquires by biggies. Another big issue for Startup is the way to sustain as most of the Startup aims to serve one another. Today's most famous startup spot are recharging, foods, cabs or e shopping. Television Media can't be categorize in Startup as they're launching by Veterans with a great backup of funds, its like living one creation to form another creation to serve some propaganda. Now in recent past when you figuring out Recharging Startups, post demonetization its importance and growth increased drastically but not due to someone's call for Digital India but due to cashback which they offers which benefited many. But roads for them are not easy recently MD of HDFC Bank Mr. Puri spoke about existence of recharging apps who're facing a huge loss due to this cashback offering and how quickly they're crunching to sustain their user base. One of the steady growing recharge startup is already up for sale due to its promoter Startup is struggling for funds after laying off more then half of thousands employees.

Two days later one of the leading recharging app who made quite a impact post demonetization changed their terms and conditions on 0% amount deduction from Credit Card to their Wallet as they claimed a number of users found doing mischief with the company's policy, they already made a complaint against some user base before as well, which shows that how a small loophole can hurt a company hard. They may took back that 2% deduction which they looks to offer as some coupon but they already indicated strangulation in the Market. Similarly if decoding about food chain its quite evident that their share are quite limited and mostly belongs to Metros where Youths live as independent. Last year one of the leading Food Startup layoff due to difficulty in survival. In recent past cab startups flourished but their basic problem is connecting with the people, one of the leading cab group from United States working hard with their existence but incidence of recent past created insecurity among them also impacted the current competitors and future upcoming groups too.

The most talked about Startup in recent past are E Shops either its a Grocery, Foods or Electronics, most trusted site are selling product in big number per minute otherwise all other are in records only. As I mentioned that if groups are being invested by some big giants then its because of their own growth and to proof the "lone wolf of the street" or the "one with eagle eye". Most of the cases Giants do like to loose money in initial days and from there the problem starts as Giants when realizes that its too much and lets now concentrated to have the money back with some interest then all of the sudden leadership behind Startups gets a call to take a action and if they're quite visionary and if able to pull the confidence back then the storm will stable if not then clouds of crisis will continue till some one from Higher Authority hit the last nail in the coffin.

Recently not only major E Comm but one major Electronics group who debut in India year ago called the "major financial crisis" in the group and lay off the staff heavily, they called the reason behind the failure is heavy investment in the marketing to promote the ecosystem of their "Smartphone" and "Smart TV" division. Indeed trend of buying latest smartphones are increased in front of the youths but invention and demand in this sector changes every month. Today Smartphone should not only looks trendy but should be compatible for latest build - stable versions of App and Security Patches and due to failing in this we already legends debacle in this sector due to this reason in the past. During the festive season all E Comm group tries to shuffles the market share by challenging each other and this is what I wrote in "Big Ecom War is back with this festival" but post demonetization exercise many small groups either took a blow badly or seized operation and this is what I wrote "Demonetization cleaning the chunk from TV, hit the local brand" on the same.

In the modern era competition its quite hard until any group either Startup or Biggie not luring customer base with some offer or cashback and India is such a market where a demand will be created only if giving something extra. But in Startup most of the group may do whatever they can to make a statement but misses their focus on "Customer or Client Satisfaction", Most of the leading and successful brand cares about good customer satisfaction its their reason for success, till customer or client is not happy they will not return back for any future business. Customer or Client who is choosy or moody if don't likes the service will not only going to give a harsh word but will also not choose the brand for the next time. People with big purse only believes in facts and figures and they want young lads running the management knowing the specific goal which needs to be achieve to keep the momentum alive rather then loosing the pace. Tats why its quite essential to fulfill demand from every side of the business, missing any of it will led the negative impact which only hurt the future prospective of a "brain child".

Why Steve Smith lost respect after his DRS Saga !!

Yesterday Steve Smith did something which no Cricket Lover would have ever expected from him to do so, also tat incident happened in a Ground like Bengaluru where every Cricket match cheers by the fan with a great passion and love. For a moment at morning session majority of people thought that India will loose the match after Indian batsman falls in a pair but Bengaluru fans stick around there and fill more number of seats to watch the last 1 hour of the game, but at that session something unspeakable happened when Umesh Yadav's delivery didn't bounce much and Smith unable to play that and caught infront of the stump for LBW, Steve Smith the captain got the review and he could use the DRS within allowed 15 seconds and since as a batsman he's only allowed to talk with his partner the other side he got Peter Handscomb to have a rare view whether he's plumb or could survive but instead of fair discussion Steve Smith and Peter Handscomb start signalling towards the Dressing Room to either go with the review or not.

Whatever happened is not only against the rules but also against spirit of the game, playing attacking - aggressive cricket is a part of the game, although in the past we saw Cricketers to abuse each other and using filthy language to fire and shift the intensity to some other level was also against spirit and should be avoidable to save the image of the game but this particular incident is also similar to mock all the respect and dignity which can't be justify at all. Being a part of Cricket Australia which will soon to be the only Board to get highest revenue among "Big Three" can recommended "Decision Review System" as "Dressingroom Review System" but till the rules are not changed actions of Smith and entire Australian Team can't be equitable. Cricket fans deserves better, DRS is already a tricky thing but quite exciting as well its like surviving or loosing a lifeline in a moment. DRS also can't be use in a emotion also its not a tool to hide but creating a strategy against spirit can be compare with Ball-Tampering which is quite a nasty thing.

Why it hurt more because Steve Smith is not only the captain for Australia but soon he will lead IPL Franchisee "Pune Supergiants" team as well as a full time captain which also have MS Dhoni as Wicket-Keeper-Batsman who's a inspiration and one of the idol for Cricket World, in many example as a Captain for Team India or as a Batsman he proved that why he's one of the best. During close calls when Umpire, Bowler or Keeper not sure enough for the dismissal we saw Dhoni to start walking off acknowledging the wicket. I remember recent concluded Pune Test of India vs. Australia where Batsman Matthew Wade who is also a Wicket-Keeper-Batsman despite of caught behind wicket with a very fine nick he sneak from that decision indicated Umpire of Bat made a contact with Pad although he still dismissed with a similar fashion in the same over and forced him to walk off towards the pavilion but not everyone can be MS Dhoni in Modern Era Cricket where stakes are quite high. Steve Smith although accepted his mistake calling it as unfortunate but any how he lost the respect which he created so far infront of Cricket World, its very hard to believe and definitely all eyes will be on him whenever he gonna bat against India in this ongoing "Border - Gavaskar" Test Series.

Why winning in ground is so crucial to win Assembly Election !!

Wondering why despite of heavy wave still regional parties are some how managing to hold their presence in the State ? I often found people who despite of not happy with local leadership still believe that they're better then National Leadership or Government which runs from National Capital. Its known fact that despite National Parties are growing yet they unable to reach to the end people. In recent past "One National Party" expanded but still far from the ground. If a group of representatives changed sides then they could do the same in near future as well tat doesn't make anyone growing here but being a opportunist looking for more opportunity as a leadership. When National Parties raise the important issues and despite of their heavy push yet they failed to impress the State People and got defeated from Regional Parties or from some Regional Party led Alliance. In recent past election are more or less contested in phrases or "Jumlebaji" and tats why its like a risk to put on if got defeated or if not stood in some dominant position in the State for future aspect.

Collecting numbers from the Ground is quite important because of a very important fact as Politics can't be done from hifi stages nor can impact in people's mind. Once a guy told me that during election politicians are like a local guy like us post election they becomes God and literally he was right, many time if you vote for a "Sarpanch" or "MLA" who not belongs to your location then its quite hard to track he or she for next 5 years. Many may don't even knows the face to whom they voted or elected as their leader tats why after seeing their photo in News Paper or News TV you can't recognize in a first instance, this a scenario of most of the places where MLAs or Sarpanch won due to the power of the party and not due to the leadership who did something to gain the recognition of the party. Many time even after doing some good or remain between peoples anti incumbency dominates which led the leader loose or we saw faces to get change to save the seat. Today if Analysts are saying that voters and their mindsets are changing then they do and tats why Elections are more complicated then ever before.

Its been years before the 2014 General Election the foundation of "Big Wave" was start building, party was start winning elections with a big margin and they looks to be a unstoppable force but the force did fall at 2012 UP Elections after loosing to a Big Regional Party of the State, Stage was big and wide tat time as well, intensity was quite high too, the winning combination was in the Center Stage then also the results was not in the favor of them because UP Elections are fought in quite a basic formula as "Be My Leader", but point to be noted as same State gave enough support to form a powerful Central Government despite of aggressive attack from other side too, similarly during 2014's General Election many voters of Delhi decided to whom they will vote for PM and to whom they will vote for CM and the results was like a clean sweep from both way, some TV channels who was tossed during Exit Poll of Delhi try to hide behind a topic that why State Elections and General Elections in Delhi didn't happened simultaneously ! Probably they're right but post results there was not a time for that question.

Many blame the results of Bihar Election due to sudden rise of "Intolerance Gang" as when the campaign reached to a high-octane drama, incidents of returning awards, debates was started to fill the fire. It was a well written script when everyone took things seriously and seriously they gone vocal in a situation of "Enough is Enough", I never saw those intense faces when a juvenile sinner walked free and Parents of the brave girl still seeking for justice. Nonetheless still any Party who was no. 2 till now looks to grabbing most of the seats who also not have base voters should only be concentrate on one single question "Why people of that State will vote you ?". Its not a rocket science that opponents will surround in any given theme. I remember during MP Elections as well, a huge anti incumbency thing was emerging and more then that "Vyapam Scam" was in full flow, National Media who not even covers MP even during Natural disaster was heavily involved with this as virtually they made head quarters in State Capital, Bhopal to cover this mess during Election time but since the end voters was connected with State Government and with Party cadres tats why the leadership secures the win with a healthy margin and victory flag was waved strongly.

Many intellectual dismissed any wave before General Election who though realized it later with a overwhelming support by the peoples. But Assembly elections are actual eye openers, where the actual politics belong. May be today youths are changing and understanding the cost of their votes but one thing for sure they will loose the trust from their leader very soon. Today's youth are very much involved everywhere from News Media to Social Media where youths are discussing and understanding the issue quite deeply and analyzing the impact of each and every news to each and every incident around the world. Today's youth doesn't turned out for freebies but actually wants to contribute as they knows the value of competition in any field. Today's youth create memes on rhetoric and grab the important points to decide "who will be my leader ?" They don't need noise but assurance from simple voice, their issues are very common and their issues are quite valid, they need solutions and if anyone who stands for them will surely win whosoever that leader got in Party Headquarters.

When "Freedom of Expression" collides with another "Freedom of Expression" !!

In last couple of days we have a roller coaster ride again, movement is shifted and expanded in a broad way enough to make a impact Nationwide. People came up with a bold mindset, different thinking to a bring a peace in the Nation also with our Neighbor Country. Its always good that we have independent voice and believe to change the current situation with a Countries, new souls are the future of Country's representation and their thinking should always be considered. Today's scenario is very similar to "70's Student Unions" where Students come against misery of Government of that time who later made a big name and became a face of Politics. Those days the fight was against Corruption, Unemployment, Price Hike and currently its about Independence !! Independence of speech to demand Independence Of.. Its not that people don't have Freedom of Speech but its about ideology which most of the peoples are opposite of and rejected it.

Everyone has a different level of thinking and different level of realization, some people workout to find a solution of any problem and some left it aside. To find a solution as well some has different level of mindset, some wants to reach on the root and some wants to take a simple route. Indeed everyone wants a peace of their life and people time to time come to appeal for the same, but what about those who lost something or other in the tense situation ? We gets numbed for a moment of time when we realizes that we lost something of our own we liked a most and was emotionally attached with, imagine people who lost whatever they got in a situation they didn't choose but stuck in a war game which not looks to be get ended anytime soon. People part of this mess wants thing to get resolve as soon as possible then those who likes the way out with some creative posters.

Everyone has a voice and rights to express it in a "Democratic Nation" but Democracy doesn't mean to stand opposite in every cause since the Government is not as per some 30% wishes. Its good to speak of your mind but responsibility towards the Nation will always be above since its also a kind of a duty we have to abide, then also most of the cases the voices won and appreciated as well. Then where the problem arises ? Problem arises when people terms the one voice as "Revolutionary" but another as "Bully". I myself condemned and stand against personal attacks or threats whosoever it is either Men or Women, choice of words are always be selective and should be specific to the topic and not above it. In Freedom of Speech if one has right to speak then others are also have the same and we got words to counter it not via sympathy.

Its quite unfortunate that during all this tussle and to defend a naive someone being called as "Illiterate" and its not he or she is a ordinary person, I can expect this in some other cases but can't in this case as someone who represented the Nation with hard work and dedication is from Sports and basically whosoever involves with Bollywood knows the hit formula and tat is make movie on Sports or Sports Persona, play the character and create history. Freedom of Expression or Speech is never a case of stopping anyone and if we won't allow the representation of youth for the Country it will be no lesser then the big blow. During "JP Movement" we saw the arise of many outspoken lads who later made a name and fame in Indian Politics and their contribution are unbelievable. Debates, Intellectual thinking are good and should be welcome but it shouldn't be a one sided affair let the counter attack should also be make a presence.

Right-Wing Trollers vs. Left-Wing Trollers

From last 4 - 5 years Social Networking becomes one of the integral part of our democracy. Social media decided the fate, social media decided the leadership, social media shown their anger, social media condemned and social media trolled. Trolls are the mockery of the system and whether its of any wing Right or Left its bad for the system. Yes Social Media is the platform for Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Speech but that doesn't means you looks like mocking system even if crediting on positives. Some people has different way of working and probably some followers who like the one way doesn't mean like the other ways, we have all rights to condemned if we differentiate the way things are going on but we can't hurt the sentiments, integrity or the respect of the Constitutional Body or any Individual, its same as either take it or leave it. In lighter mode we all can tease someone but entering into a personal level is undignified. Its a art to quote someone without naming or tagging not everyone knows it, tagging and calling personally is a disaster of a healthy debate, is a disaster of honesty and its a only example of personal grudge, ruthlessness.  

In our society we got many peaceful protesters who drawn the truth or wrote it without naming, without tagging, they impacted the system with their best and never feared with any consequences, they even earned respect from the decision makers and will remember forever due to being a selfless voice of a voiceless. Currently in the political backyard we got to see people throwing mud on each other if ideology is not matching then you become either a "Bhakth" , "Paid Voice" or "Corrupt". Today we may be feel free from expressing our views but actually we're not, some 5 - 6 years ago only Personalities from Film Industry and Sports started Social Media specially Twitter out of those no. of Politicians was 1 or 2, later on number of users start connecting with their favorite stars and later on the entire social circle increased, those days we saw some incidents which led anger in localities and the usage of social sites increased, the moment which was like each one reach one for the Country was only possible with social network, yesterday's common man who today are VIPs, VVIPs appeal to keep the momentum alive by appealing into those platforms which led the sequence one of the biggest in modern era.

Importance increased few understood the power of virtual world which led virtual "Karyakartas" of different propaganda which got involved in the social networking to attack - defend and promote, basically we surrounded by social media volunteers who keeps the trend of thinking active out of that may be many who're either knowingly or unknowingly endorsing the ideology as well and tats why its quite unhealthy for someone who really a commoner and get stuck in a cat fight between 2 different groups. Today every political parties trying to become River Ganges who refines Corrupt as clean and defines a Honest as corrupt with his or her party's symbol. Party who claimed to reform the politics is playing the same tactics like others and like others they too fighting against face and not against corruption. Volunteers or Followers of 1 wing cry bay against others and the same reaction comes out from opposite side. People who used to believe in constructive talk too jumps in below the belt conversation because they don't gets the answer which they deserves to keep the dignity high.

Important thing for actual commoners and not who're pretended to be commoners is that if something goes wrong then actual commoner will be grind off, tats why its better not to get involved in every fire which may harm, sensibility in Social media is the most important thing one should understand, yes its a place of where we can express our views freely but we also needs to make sure that we're not breaking any law and order with the same or hurting someone's sentiment. We should always avoid enforcers daring us unless we really wants it in our own risk because only we will be responsible of any aftermath not others. Constructive talk is always better and problem is that despite of youths we have very less constructive platforms or forums where we can share our ideas and express ourselves, nowhere days even innocents can't protest for their rights or liking and the trend continues with Chief of State locking their office sit on streets for striking against face of leadership. Troll means Troll whether its a from of any Volunteers, Campaigners. Face of Societies or from Leadership of one side or other side. We can't excuse or should not support the negativity which only led Brothers against Brothers, Community against Community.

Digital Era in a Cash Woe State

Ever since Demonetisation came into picture E wallets like Freecharge, Paytm became a saviour of daily household, before for having E Wallets account was like joining a moment towards Digital Era but afterwards it happens to be a necessity of everyone’s part of life. Demonetisation was difficult but most necessary step and because of this wings of opportunity in Digital Transaction has been opened. More peoples are now inclined towards the cashless economy for the seamless transaction. We can’t totally replace the cash economy or can end it but we can save some cost of Government of India who invest in printing cash by joining Cashless Economy, that remaining amount can be saved and used for any beneficiary programs in the Country.

No doubt digital transaction is not easy in first hand but it also a most rapid way to pay money, with a single click you can transact without much of a effort made on it. For cash you always needs to find ATMs, you may end paying extra as well with every withdrawal and then worry about cash’s security and search change here and there, sometime we end up paying a penny extra but it’s not a case with Digital transaction. Indeed we needs to take care a bit to protect ourselves from fraudulent rest it’s a best possible way to deal in a digital era. Digital Transaction also provides the transparency which we always needed in our transaction, it also helps to monitor the daily expends which helps any family to workout on a daily, weekly, monthly cost. 

India is a Youth-Centric Country and Youth likes to experience something new, they have less fear but excitement to try new. Today very few percentage of people wants things to be simple and rest of them like action to be live and on the go, tats why no matter whatever the Internet speed our Country lies between poor to average we gets a huge number in viewership via OTT Apps. Any cricket match featuring India or IPL draws a big number of viewership because of youths craze towards cricket and the option to join the game live. The adaptation of digital currency also giving strengths to Online content providers and tats why number of investment in such parlours are increased in recent past compare to what we used to have 3 – 4 years ago. As per future aspect content cost of Digital rights will jump upto 10% of what we have currently and price of Television rights will drastically see a fall. 

Cashless economy is the essential step for Digital India concept also it helps to tackle corruption due to its transparency. Digital India concept which led people to connect with E World opening the tons of opportunities from it, from business class to working class it representing the world in a simplified manner in our LCD/LED Monitor. For youths internet not only provides the education materials, platform to search jobs, website to entertain, E Shops to get a latest trendy fashion, paying the necessary bills are kind of examples from this never ending virtual world. This also helps any startup to join the online community to give the first shout also a small business owner to get explored by millions. Digital World has no boundaries and no limits and it takes no time to get understood or get it understand. 

Cashless Economy is a part of Digital India concept which also helps to increase literacy, there are millions in the Country who do have basic education but yet not aware from basic rights which are made to support the livelihood and to make the complicate thing easy. Now with Digital India any kind of subsidy reaching to someone’s bank account which is also a kind of document proof of that person. Bank account also gives a hand on information towards anyone’s savings and connecting all this info with Aadhaar, today people need not to find bank because their finger print and mobile number does all the work. There was a time when people needs to worry about doing all official formalities infact in rural someone needs to worry about his or her mobile recharge but tats no more a issue. 

Cashless economy gave a opportunity to live a easiest life, also to make someone a contributor towards the Nation’s development. Now people using a service and paying for it, there is no middle man in any kind of deal which was a venom in the society barring down the growth of the nation for a very long time. No doubt cashless economy which is a sub part of Digital India is not so easy to adopt but we can’t hold for a long time from a world which can be explore in one click. It’s a need of a hour to lift the standards by going cashless rather then saying to protect mother nature time to keep the trees alive because currency printed from paper and for paper trees get slaughtered, we should keep the nature clean, eliminates the middle man and earn some cash backs as well through such E Wallets.
