Social Media – The Cause & The Solution Of Depression

Social Media – The Cause & The Solution Of Depression

Today is World Health Day and the ​theme is “Depression: Let’s talk!” It seems like everyone is suffering from depression these days (even the economy, the society, the morals and the ethics). But this blog is not to discuss any of these subjects. I want to talk about the changing nature of the world and what I think are the larger aspects of this thing called depression. What is depression? Under most circumstances it is the unwillingness (not the inability) to do something by the right side of the brain which the left side of the brain thinks is a must do. In that sense, us... Read More

For the Love of Cricket

For the Love of Cricket

“Itni shidaat se maine tumhe paane ki koshish ki hai, ki har zarre ne mujhe tumse milane ki saazish ki hai. Kehte hain ki …… Agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho to puri kayanat usey tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai.” I love cricket, period. And I don’t just say this for the sake of it. I really do love cricket. I have arm twisted and forced people around me to do cricket and cricket based stuff for years. And now, I can proudly say, I told you so. OMLogic is proud (extremely proud) to be the digital partner for vivo mobiles, the official sponsor of the IPL 2016 and beyond. No... Read More

Net Neutrality – Have We Understood It Right?

Net Neutrality – Have We Understood It Right?

I am a cab company and am now entering into a contract with a toll wherein my passengers will not be charged toll. I will pay for it in lump-sum and my cabs would be allowed to pass through the free gates, without having to stop. Is it a breach of toll neutrality? I don't think we have evaluated and thought about Net Neutrality the right way so far. Net Neutrality simply says that all data on the internet will be treated the same way, irrespective of the source and irrespective of the content. Providing a choice to the source to make the payment versus a user to make the payment is actually ... Read More

Je Suis Charlie?

Je Suis Charlie?

We have grown extremely intolerant as a society. The recent Charlie Hebdo incident triggered a lot of conversations around the world and it got me thinking. Let’s keep the violence and killing aside for a moment, I can’t (hopefully nobody can) justify and/or support that. But Islam prohibits anyone to draw any image and call it Prophet. There is no ambiguity, it is plain and simple prohibited. And it forms a very important tenet of Islam. Having said this, does a devout Muslim have a reason to be upset over violation of what they regard as their belief system and/or their religious righ... Read More

If It’s about Facebook and Twitter, We Are All Doomed

7 years back when I founded OMLogic, online business was ruled by two major elements – keywords and technology but I was careful not to fall in this trap. I categorically placed the element of ‘communications’ while making the business and strategy plan. This step also led to the naam-karan of the company – OMLogic, bringing logic to online marketing. Soon enough we had a team who believed the same and we continued weaving the communications part in the brands’ online approach until one day, we saw that the others were doing the same (which essentially meant that everyone was doin...
