Google Search - Reunion video by Google India

How many ads you count, you remember not because of the frequency of times you saw that, but because of the gravity of content on the ad video?
I think very few are there which really touch our heart and sits forever thereafter. Recently there is one such video which has gone viral because of it's content and provoking emotional touch. Google India launched an ad video with the name 'Google Search: Reunion' of length 3:33 minutes.

I would say, a Must watch the video.

The video was uploaded on 13th November 201…

ThankYouSachin a small tribute to the cricketing Legend Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

There is a saying, "Feeling short of words to express my feeling!". I don't think there would be a word coined, which can describe what Sachin did for Cricket in India.  It was Sachin who made people believe that Cricket too exist in India and there is a team which can be World's #1 team.

I think that would have been Sachin's assurance through his games, that people start getting connected to Cricket and now Cricket has become a religion in the country.


A token of +Thank You Sachin through a Facebook post.

Wishing my love the king of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan on his Birthday

They say why Shah rukh makes films like Ra. One, Chennai Express, Zero and some others which don't suit him. They say why he over promote his films, they say why he is so monotonous and why he is not so versatile? And much more.

Is it that Shah rukh don't know what he does, or he is so rigid/insensitive that he can't feel the expectations of his loyal fans?

Shahrukh himself can answer these best. After all, he is the wittiest.

I'm here just to wish my favourite, the Badshah of Bollywood, King Khan, "Shahrukh Khan".
I genuinely love you, you are talented, hard-working, down to earth and knows the cultural values and limits, you always respect those who deserve it.

A play of Identity and authenticity by Hetain Patel

To know about different people, their work, their art, their thinking, is what I like the most, I love learning from people and their experiences. I happen to be someone who loves authenticity and who loves to be genuine with his art. You can't be authentic till you get the real difference of what you aren't, which others are. You happen to be real you, when you fail to imitate others. The more you fail imitating others, the more you realize the authentic you.
