Conjuring 2 - My Views

My adult daughter insisted me to see the movie.  She cautioned me, I would be afraid as it’s a scary movie. So I took up the challenge. 

My first impression: The movie was a refined and polished version of one of the Ramsey movies I saw during my 20s. Some might feel this is a cruel comparison, but so be it. 

Some comments on the direction (though I am least qualified):

When Ed Warren knew the house is haunted why the hell did he enters the basement at night to do some plumbing job? Can’t they call a plumber during the day and get it solved? Was Ed there to help them in plumbing work?

2nd: How they found in a camera Janet is faking? When someone is being haunted, obviously she was under the control of some other soul but the body will anyway remain the same.  They saw in the camera that Janet is faking by seeing her body doing it, but that is obvious in the case someone who is being haunted (in movies). How was it concluded she is faking? 

& the last scene when three of them were on the verge of falling from the window holding one after the other, that reminded me of Manmohan Desai scene sequences. 

All in all Ok movie, which is hyped more.

Yoga – aspects you may not know

The world is celebrating International Yoga Day today.
Yoga is popularly known by Asana i.e. physical movements and Prayanama, breathing exercise performed by practitioners. Asana and Prayanama are what the Yoga means is the belief of most practitioners when most think about the Yoga.

Even before Patanjali Yoga was practiced and considered a way of life in India.  However the oldest Sutras, we have in written format is by Sage Patanjali.Continue reading...

How service design approach can reduce waiting time?

Healthcare is the industry where people consume the service out of compulsion. No customer comes there out of their desire or choice. Perhaps customers come here when they are in distress and in delicate health condition. People accompanying the patient are also in the disturbed mind as their loved and dear one is suffering and they are apprehensive about the outcome of the treatment. Continue reading...

Service Design – Why you can’t ignore it?

We all know the premium designers products command in the market. As far as services are concerned most service providers are not designing the service.
Services are about customer services. For new age businesses customer service is the core service. It does not come into play once the goods are sold and when the problem crops up. Be it banking, insurance, healthcare or hotels or any other services, their core business is customer service.  Continue Reading. 

How to use colour palette – DAILY ?

“There is nothing insignificant in the world. It all depends on the point of view.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When I was watching the sunset at the Juhu beach, few others were watching the closed hotel Tulip star from the opposite side, few were watching the sea at Versova and a few others were watching the sea at Bandra side. Everyone had a different angle and the view they were getting from their angel were their view and their reality. Continue reading....

My First Podcast Interview

Dangerous DEBT

The NPA is a fraction of the problem for Indian banks. They will employ a team of lawyers and / or sell NPA to ARCs to get rid of such accounts. They will get capital from the Govt.
But for entrepreneurs having an NPA, it is the mega problem for them. Their other good accounts will get affected; no one will lend them, they will be at a risk of selling of property mortgaged to the bank. It’s a very stressful situation. Mostly most small NPAs are not willful but ignorant NPAs. Read more.
