Lets first look at some facts and prevalently accepted assumptions:
People under the age of 50 have an extremely low mortality rate (0.2%) and that too predominantly for people with cardiovascular, diabetes, hypertension and other morbid diseases.
You will at some point during the journey end up contracting CoronaVirus and if you are under 50 with no morbid disease, you should recover with similar mortality to a dengue or chickengunya or flu or other viruses.
Hence, if you are under 50, the reason you need to be in lockdown because you may become the carrier of the virus... isn't... Read More...
Wikipedia defines World War as "a war engaged in by all or most of the principal nations of the world".
It doesn’t have to be a war amongst each other. No one said a world war has to be a war between 2 warring factions of humans. It doesn’t really need to be between countries, races, ethnicities or different sets of people. It doesn’t need to have a winner and a loser. But what has happened since January 2020 is WW III. An event that impacts the whole world, brings people together, changes humanity forever, is a fight for survival.
The implications are almost unimaginable. The g... Read More...
I have been pondering about this for a while. Considering India is an electoral democracy with a judiciary branch independent of executive and polity, considering that India is not a majority referendum based system, considering everything is governed by this book called the Constitution of India which provides and guarantees equality for all, isn’t the concept of civic protests illegal or against the basic nature of constitution??
Isn’t the right answer for any law related disagreement to approach judiciary? Are we letting things go awry by the freedom to protest that is provided spec... Read More...
I have grown up reading about power and what it means and what it does to people. Power was taught sometimes as money and sometimes as derived from control. However, the more I have delved into India, the more I realize how untrue this is.
India is a country run by the mob or the fear of the mob. It's not a country run by the politicians, it's not a country run by the businessmen.
All that businessmen try to do is control the politicians and all the politicians want to do is to have a mechanism to control the mob.
A logical question is: What is the mob? The mob is not a group of people, it... Read More...
It’s the biggest festival of India. Its what binds everyone together. Its one of the few things that transcends above caste, region, gender and believe it or not, even religion.
For years we have rejoiced the festival of Diwali like nothing else. But 2017 is different. The lackluster marketplaces, the missing euphoria, the reduced lighting, the dull scene all around, it is getting depressing.
In this madness of the fight between left and right wing, the social media conversations that seem to have taken over everything, we seem to not be paying attention to perhaps the best indicator of th... Read More...
This isn’t a normal job post, coz I don’t want to hire normal people. This isn’t another employee that I want for OMLogic. This is me hiring someone who will get to work directly with me on OMLogic Business Development, marketing, wacky projects, skunk research work; anything and everything exciting and interesting digital has to offer.
My criterion for hiring:
The person should work with a smile. I can’t tolerate much less work with frowning faces
The person should be a YES to work, always. If an opportunity comes, first explore with a Yes and eventually come to a No if its not good... Read More...
Delhi recently put a ban on the fire-crackers. While it’s a good
way to control the pollution, it is once again a demonstration of
innovative thinking that governments should do. It seems like our
government rates citizens at the lowest grade of importance for them
(specially this ever-ignored middle class). All their decision making
seems to come from an autocratic decree approach and people are just
expected to ‘live with it’. This sort of unimaginative thinking
used to be more prevalent in Islamic ruled countries earlier but is
not gaining much higher traction in India.
Lets firs... Read More...
Life is built on one basic principle – the extension and longevity of life itself. Every organism, every cell, everything is built with this one hardcoded algorithm.
In extreme cases such as where adrenaline takes over or where we have a brain freeze moment, the algorithm may reverse itself.
The only two other true facts important for any organism are better mate & better food. Longevity of the organism is the basic trait that governs reproduction. If a cell knows itself to be immortal, it may just cease to multiply or reproduce.
Knowing that to be the case, why is suicide co... Read More...
In a world where digital agencies keep flourishing and flopping...what sets us apart? People? Clients? Vibes? All of these certainly! But if we look closer...you’ll see him standing there. Smiling! The *funny man* who’s been sailing our vessel, quite steady and strong. As we rejoice recalling the good, bad, ugly moments of 10 years, we can’t help jotting down these utterly stupid and special things that only he can pull off! @KapGup: For once, stay chup and read on! This is for you. :)
