Welcome to the real world Road Rash – Welcome to Infopark Road

Would you like to play road rash in real life?

Then welcome to Cochin. All you need to do is to have a ride through the Infopark road during the office hours. I am not exaggerating, just have a look at the video taken infront of Carnival Infopark, Kakkanad – The IT Hub of Cochin.

The section infront of Carnival infopark is the worst segment in this road. Its chaotic – you have a four lane road infront of you with vehicles going in all directions along with pedestrians crossing carelessly. A perfect example of unplanned roads in the city. The junction infront of Infopark Main gate and Smart City main gate is equally chaotic. But the real winner in this race to be the best chaotic junction is the one near Vyaparabhavan junction – right at the beginning of Infopark road.

Left Right Left Malayalam Movie Review

This movie inspired me to restart my movie review blogs ­čÖé Left Right Left can be tagged as a political movie criticizing the present communist leadership in Kerala. The movie attracted the protest from the party leadership and they even managed to get it banned in the district of Kannur. There is a news spreading that party bought the movie to avoid its screening over television.

Facebook Fan Pages : Are you building communities of Self Destruction ?

More and more companies are realizing the importance of social media.When I was working with Ayruz in 2009, many a times I saw the confused faces of my friends when I told them that I am working with a digital marketing startup. The situation has changed a lot from what it was three years back. Now I have atleast two dozen people in my friends list who are working with digital marketing companies.

Understanding social media is very important before you embrace social media. Getting the right social media strategy in place is crucial.I quote from David Armano’s HBR article

An Em Bee Yeah Review of #DiamondNecklace

Diamond necklace is the story of an NRI Specialist doctor- his poor personal financial management and the problems associated with it. I went for the movie without much expectations as I had received reviews which were pointing towards two extremes. While some people gave excellent reviews for the movie portraying Fahad Fazil as the future of Malayalam cinema, there were others who gave totally negative review. See this funny pictorial review which appeared on one of my friends facebook wall

Ordinary – A very Ordinary Movie

Malayalam movie ‘Ordinary’ starring Kunchacko Boban, Biju Menon and Aan Augustine very well justify its name – a very ‘Ordinary’ movie. Cinematography is the best thing about this movie. A person watching this movie will definitely set plans for a trip to Gavi. The beauty of Gavi is presented in such an awesome manner. Predictable┬ástory line┬áis the biggest drawback of the movie in my opinion.
