The November case of Chelsea fc

Chelsea lost in BPL for first time this season to Manchester United in the most controversial manner. The Torres red card, the Chirchitto off side goal and rest of above a referee who tried to prove that he is more important than the game, I know people will say after all they are too human.

Well first Torres red card, It was not the yellow card in the first case. According a former BPL referee if there is any minimal contact, please read carefully, minimal contact and player goes down you can’t show him yellow card. Well the referee did show him yellow card, you can imagine he want to show that he is the boss of the match. I know lots of referee does that in the starting of the match but no like this. Again lots of conspiracy theory will come up again Chelsea fc. They are victim of their own success, nobody believed they could win champions league and yet they did. I hope they do with BPL this season but now the pressure will be on them to win the matches.

Well last two seasons Chelsea fc lost the title in the November, yes that’s true. The barren run they had in this month last year cost them and AVB also. They have lost most point in this month than any other month of BPL action, this year also the purpose should be the same. The ship should be stabilized; they need to grind out the result. I think the way they responded to Man utd. Two goal lead fantastic but now they have to shut and shop at teams. November is very important because they will face Man. City who is also a title contender, if they can get pass them and remain in top two then they have a good chance of winning the league.

Give this team chance and RDM also, they are playing some of the best football in the BPL that you could see. They are superb as team and yet they need the lady luck with them to be start successful as Barcelona did. They won luckily at Chelsea fc in semi in UCL to have a great season, now Chelsea need to do the same.  I hope they win the Capital one cup so the new team can start believing that they can win the major tournament.

For next match in capital one cup, I would love to see marin in starting lineup in place of hazard and Moses in place of Oscar. So it would give Man utd. Something to think about, who ever win the match but most importantly the referee will have to bring his A game for this match. I know it is early but ask Man. Utd. Fan every point cost in marathon like league.

P.S.: I like the way Chelsea fc play, but the danger is we often fall behind early and had to do the catch up the entire match. Need to get our noses out first in match.

A perfect match Bollwood and ecommerce

Recently I was at home with my sister and was helping her out with her shopping schedule. Whichever market we used to go I used to find some very funny name spelt by the shopkeepers. For example the style of suite prachi desai used in Bol bachaan is named after the movie as Bol bachaan suite. This does not end here I found our kareena suite, Katrina suite and even Sonakshi sinha suite.

These all are second tier market, far away from the Mall culture, People use their purchasing power generally in the special occasion like Eid, Diwali and Holi. These are big festival in the India Culture. They idolize bollywood and want to live the life of their stars. You go to these second tier market you will find more product on the name of stars rather than name of Brand of cloth. It is an unorganized sector which has still got much stronger grip on market then organized market. Take example of Salmaan Khan Hair style in tere naam which was so popular at that time, every other young boy wanted to get hair style like Salmaan Khan. That is what is mass appeal is called.

I see a huge potential in the ecommerce sector if they use the bollywood in the right way especiall in the clothing in the fashion segment. If they can get together with bollywood and launch some of the excusive series but make sure it can be economical. They can unlock the huge market which can be easily captured.

I am not sure how it will be done, but there is surely a scope. If name of films can be used to see suit in small towns then see how impact can be made if they know how to get the clothing of say Salman brand cloth. One field which has used this marriage in perfect way is IPL; they have used bollywood in the perfect way. They have captured the required eye ball with bollywood.

E commerce is an emerging sector which might be most benefitted with Bollywood presence in the board. They will create an assurance in the people which is hard to install and a new market to open up which is hard to capture. I hope some E commerce venture is listening to me.

MY BIG TICKET IDEA WILL BE that some E commerce start clothing line in the reference of Cinema. Say for example you can buy clothing of Jab tak hai Jaan film or special made cloths for that series. It would be huge step to grow in the tier II and tier III city because it is more look conscious rather than brand conscious. 

P.S.: I hope somebody stole my Idea as I am doing nothing about it. :D

Yaado ka idiot Nama... With saifi

With each passing year, our memory of our past time starts fading away. We only remember some of the best parts of our school, college life and with our family and friends. Problem with our school time was there where no such thing called Camra phone, so we could not capture our memories. I did it in our college time and whenever I looked at it, I just revisit all the best days of life at that time.

Here are collection of few photographs which I have found in my laptop collection of my college life and hostel life. 

Our faculty in the college, many of them has left the college but I will always remember them.  From left, Vaishali Ma’am, Prerna Ma’am (Our mentor), Deep shikha Ma’am (Oh who could forget her acts. Class in first semester), Shefali Ma’am (My fvrt. Teacher, we did all the masti in her class), ------( I forget her name, now I will put my hand up and say Bad memory saifi), Jyothi Ma’am ( Well I took her all the classes ever though I was not in the HR selective subject), faiz sir ( His marketing class used to be fun), Last our HOD, his question used to unique, like why yellow pages are called yellow pages.

A photo of our early days in Hostel days, all the hosteller used to sit in the ground to watch the TV. I think this click is of Cricket match which was telecasted. And the room you see in circle used to me my Hotel flat. Room no 96.

 Jyothi Kiran Socity gate, Which was our hostel. We spend our one year inside this gate. There was whole world for us inside this gate. Ahhh Just missing those evening of Greater noida inside this hostel.

This is Flat no 96, Where Me, Jayant and bade bahiya (Nisheeth) used to live, this pick is of last day when we left the hostel and moved on in the life. But this flat has given some golden memories to me which can never be forgotten. 

Soonsan road of Sector Pie, where you have to travel at least 2 KM for the auto, If you have missed you college bus. And also the evening walk to Acher market, where most of the Girls hostels was there.
This pick is of the fresher day, don't try to find Mr. raj here bcz we didn't know him till that date. From Left, Mr. Jayant singh, Kapoor Sahab ( Well in his words, "Kisi ne Inko dost nahi samjha"), Pradeep bhai ( he was chaha ji of our group and used to give Jayant love tips of how to talk to girls and he himself not talked to any girl in his whole MBA), In between in blue trowser and white shirt that is me saifi (Well this pick remind me how we used to look one year back), RP singh ( His name is too long to get mention here, But Me and jayant used to go his room and love it there because he always used to give us something to eat.)

This pick is of our Fresher Party, Well it was combined party of all the college fresher not like how we gave to our Juniors separate party. I think song was "Gulabi Ankhe jo teri dekhi, Sharabi ye dil ho gaya".

P.S.: I will try to bring few more memorable picks of our college and hostel time, so we can just see our life once more.
