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. There's a fair chance that you would have watched it on a Chinese color TV, maybe a Xiaomi, TCL or OnePlus. 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.

Flipkart Walmart Deal: Walmart India acquired by Flipkart

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.

Salt as a commodity is not considered to be that important. But, you would have heard many times about taking everything 'with a pinch of salt.' This means that whenever someone tells you something, do not believe them completely or exaggerate. Salt is usually unique with its properties. You would have surely read in recipes add 'Salt to taste.' If the salt is less in a dish, it tastes bland while, on the other hand, if it's more, it becomes difficult to eat it. So, the perfect quantity of salt remains subjective.

Indian Trains in Private Hands!

If there is one thing that is believed to represent the majority population of our country, that is Indian Railways.

Ethics, fair practices, and character, these are certain things that China has never maintained it. China has relied on counterfeiting, conservatism, and unfair practices to achieve the superpower status of the world. At this time, China is facing a rant from all across the world (except Pakistan and North Korea) for its role in causing the pandemic but, it looks like China still hasn’t learned its lesson and is still the Dog’s tail. In fact, China is audaciously getting involved in proxy wars and trying to exploit the declining world economy.

Can the dream 'Chinese Products Banned in India' be realised

We are Indians first and all our individual identities come next. So, if there’s anything we can do for the country, we won’t back off. We may be price sensitive people but when it comes to nationalism, we can adjust. And, probably that’s what China needs to understand. That country has tried to almost capture our economy by dumping things at cheapest prices. And now, as you all know it’s trying to get into our borders. Now, the question is that apart from military action, what can we do to teach China a lesson?
