Why is Tata Group Eying a Stake in Big Basket?

Of the many records that Rahul Dravid holds, maximum number of deliveries faced in Test Cricket is the least feted. Dravid has met 31,258 deliveries in 164 Tests.

Different venues, different bowlers and different match conditions.

Interest on Interest Waiver: Is the move justified?

Loan - a word, which in itself has both positive and negative impacts on a person. On the one hand, it is a monetary blessing which gets an individual, company or entity one step closer to achieving whatever it is they desire; and on the other hand, it is a stressful liability, which comes in the form of expensive EMIs and regular interests, failing to pay which, tends to trap the borrower in an almost inescapable trap of hefty penalty and interests.

Why taxation in automobile sector remains a big concern?

Have you ever questioned yourself, why do you buy a car? Well, it's a simple question, and we all can answer that. For commuting, maybe for security purposes, because you might not feel safe traveling through public transport. But, the biggest reason that may be valid for many people is "Sharma Ji has gifted a Fortuner to his son" or "Binod got a BMW for himself." It's the harsh truth of the Indian society that we consider cars more as a status symbol rather than looking at it as a utility. Whatever your reason may be, but sometimes just to match up with others we book significant losses for ourselves. How? Let us discuss this.

Everything about Deepak Kochhar & Money Laundering case

The dispute between India and China has come out openly in front of the entire world, and it wants the two Asian giants to make peace with each other. Still, despite several diplomatic talks and statements, the issue is far from over. In the current times, a traditional war cannot be an option unless either side triggers something big. Hence, both the nations resort to indirect attacks (proxy-wars) at each other. One move at this series of ‘proxy-war’ was the recent mobile app ban of Chinese applications by the Indian government, which resulted in a direct financial loss to China. The proxy war is a technique through which you can attack your enemy through indirect techniques. Keeping a note of the pattern of each proxy measure, both the nations can plan ahead and try to minimize the damage caused by the other nation’s move, if not completely avoid it.

A company that entertains this demand of the users is bound to succeed.

Ever seen a sprint event in the Olympics? There’s an interesting thing about these races and especially the 400-meter races. The athlete who is ahead or leads in the first 100 meters doesn’t necessarily win at the end. Mostly, the one reaching the finish line first is the athlete who doesn’t look to rush from the very beginning. It’s the athlete who builds up the pace and gradually increases the speed and gives its best in the final 100 meters. Sometimes, a similar situation evolves in the corporate world between a market leader and a competitor.

Import restrictions on Chinese colour TV sets

We know it's an auspicious day today, and you may have watched the live telecast of Ramjanmbhoomi Bhoomipujan from Ayodhya.

Just in case you were thinking of buying a new TV in the near future and witnessing the telecast of such events, it's quite probable that your TV won't be a Chinese brand. Or, even if it is, it would have been manufactured in India.

Time for Educational Transformation!

Our government is involved in filmy coincidences these days. In 2018, a political action drama Telugu movie was released titled 'Dashing CM Bharat' starring Mahesh Babu. In the story, the newly elected CM imposed heavy fines on those breaking traffic rules. Sometime after that, the government introduced heavy monetary penalties for traffic rule violations. Now, just a few weeks ago, a video went viral on social media in which an IAS officer was seen saying not so good things about our education system. And, here we are today witnessing the New Education Policy 2020 that has been introduced by the government. Now, whether films are being made to inspire the government or government is itself getting inspired by the films/social media, it is all worth it until doing good for common people.

Why the prices of gold are rising constantly?

Remember Sanjay Dutt’s Vaastav? Had that film been made today, Sanjay Dutt would not have been able to say that famous dialogue “Pachaas Tola!” (translating to 50 ounces of Gold). The reason being, he surely wouldn’t have been able to afford this much Gold with yellow metal’s prices touching record highs. This was on a lighter note, now let’s get into some informational details.

There is something called 'Fad.' This is a shorter version or rather the shortest version of fashion. Actually, fashion stays relatively longer than a fad. This is similar to 'getting viral,' which is becoming quite a thing these days. You would have noticed that all the stuff that gets viral stays only till the next thing gets viral. The fact of the matter is that fads stay for a short duration, but till the time they stay, people are just crazy about them. One such fad is e-commerce. You may remember that all the companies were trying to get into e-commerce, and it is still said to be the next big thing. But, looks like now the fad has changed to offline retail!

Vodafone-Idea gets a sigh of relief from Supreme Court

Can corporate situations resemble typical Bollywood movies? Sometimes maybe. You would have seen, especially in the movies of the ’90s, that, when a villain used to do everything he could to kill the hero, and the hero felt completely helpless, he went to a temple and prayed. ‘Upar wale ke ghar me dher hai, andher nahi,’ that’s what the hero used to utter while praying and some miracle happened which used to save his life and keep his family safe from the villain. After being forced to pay the AGR dues, Vodafone-Idea might have found itself in a similar situation.

New Advertising Strategy of Chinese Smartphones

In marketing, there's a concept called 'Localization.' According to this concept, a company customizes its product based on the needs of the market in which it is selling. A classic example of this is the introduction of 'Mc Aloo Tikki' burger by McDonald's in India. By the way, it was not innovation or some positive marketing strategy, but McDonald's was forced into this. After McDonald's introduced its classic Beef Burger in India, it had to face mass retaliation as it had inadvertently hurt Indians' sentiments. But, then it introduced a range of localized products, and you see, it's working for it fine now.
