We face many new years in one year in INDIA.
1st Jan ( Calender Year )
1st April ( Financial Year )
New Year ( Next day of Diwali - Hindu New Year )
Gudi Padwa ( Local State New Year , in my case Maharashtra)
Today ( In my case , and in your case yr respective actual birthday )
Advantage: Ever few months we can make new year resolutions and every few months we also review the same.
I learned abt new ways to celebrate birthdays by following interesting ppl on Twitter: Author Chetan Bhagat took 300 less privileged children to the multiplex theatre for a movie, another gentleman spent time with senior citizen at one of the old age homes. Gr8 ideas.
Lets brain storm what better can be done on THE day?
Technology has made it easier to remember birthdays so I am getting many automated mails and many SMSs too. Just NOW got call from LIC for wishing me personally.
I am still looking for Wow !!! er from all my service providers and all companies for whom I am a customer or a client.
Therefore we have two questions:
1) How do we celebrate our birthday - fruitfully /innovative-ly /non routine way?
2) How companies can wow!!! customers on their birthdays?
Pl share yr thoughts. Cheers.
