Android Going Gaga In India!

Love the way Android is spreading its wings in India, low cost phones with standardized specs and experience. Brilliant, tremendous possibilities ahead. Even though I believe iPhone is the best smartphone experience, they need serious advice about growth in India. You can’t change the world with a phone costing 65k (iPhone 6), but with 6k what Android One is doing, its a great story, and in their presentation they mention 3 top apps from India, ixigo being one of them! Win Win Win

The video which reached 25% of Facebook users in India! Wow! :D Case study coming soon. Humbled and excited about upcoming videos :)

People can die, but let’s not be late.
This is a photo of Avneet, a young man in his 20s who was hit by seizures by the side of the road in Gurgaon today. At first it looked liked a crazy dance, then he fell into a pile of mud, his limbs out of control. Imagine a man desperate for help by the side of a muddy road, in the rain. Traffic continued, some people pointing at him from their AC cars and making sorry faces. Hit the brake, ran over, digging through the mud and water. He was passing out, out of control. Two auto-rickshaw drivers also stopped, gave him water, while I desperately called ambulance. What’s the number for the ambulance? 102? “Sorry sir, this is Delhi’s number, called Gurgaon number” What? The guy was getting a little better, and was able to sit now but was going into spasms. Thought he’d be fine, now that he can sit. So I left, looking at him through the rear view. Who would stop if I was in his shoes, or say if you were. Cars passing by, sorry looking aunties pointing at you but no one stops. What will happen of this kid? I turned around and went back, everyone had left, he was sitting by himself, visible shaken but in his senses. Asked him if he’s ok, what’s his name, where he lives, if he wants me to call someone. He kept sitting there and said nothing, other than his name. I gave him a bottle of water and left. Why doesn’t anyone care anymore on our roads? Why is it all about excessive honking, wrong turns and useless aggression. People can die, but lets not be late. Next time you see someone in need by the road, stop making those sad faces, or be in dilemmas or feel sorry for the world. Get out, coz if you don’t, no one will.
