Now that (apparently) the initial euphoria around the Swachh Bharat initiative has died down and people are settling back to their normal course of action, here are my thoughts on this great initiative.

Do you want to supersize that drug?
I am a big ibuprofen fan for all sprains and related inflammations. The ibuprofen strips in our medical cabinet usually expire before they get consumed and we throw it away, just like we threw away that strip of 200mg dose of ibuprofen last month. Having a backup of a strip of 400mg dose, I didn’t… Continue reading Do you want to supersize that drug?
Free is costlier in reality
As elections are getting closer, political parties in India are announcing more and more populist schemes across India. None of the major national parties or prominent regional parties are exception to this. Even though these populist schemes work in the short term to please masses (and in return fetch votes), the impact of these schemes… Continue reading Free is costlier in reality
Bye Bye BlackBerry
Today I said adieu to my long term primary phone – the one I use to make most calls – my BlackBerry. I still love the simplicity of the phone, but the phone became a white elephant for the feature set it delivers. I still have two more phones that I use – an Android… Continue reading Bye Bye BlackBerry

House Of Cards
I am not a big fan of watching TV series, except for random watching of shows like AFV or special interest shows like National Geographic. However, when Netflix announced House Of Cards (here), I got a little more curious than usual. Part of the reason is the presence of Kevin Spacey, the actor who left… Continue reading House Of Cards
