There was not a single dry eye at the Wankhede Stadium that day. Millions across the nation paused, at that very off beat non-prime time slot, and perked up their ears to listen to what the little man was saying. Because after twenty four glorious years, Indian crickets greatest flag bearer was drawing stumps on an epic innings. Every emotion laced word seemed to edify the realization; that the nation was losing the one man, whose fortunes had become the topic of everyday conversation, from residential dinner tables to corporate water coolers.
But to stop the inspiration emanating from Sachinís craft, merely at the boundaries of cricket would be a colossal error. Over two decades of sterling performances and untiring dedication, have a lot to inform those other players in white collars as well. And as modern day business organizations try and chalk up record numbers of their own, surely there is a thing or two to be borrowed from the Little Masterís rich saga.
The early part of the fourteenth century, ushered in a magical period in Europe, indeed in all of human consciousness. Following hot on the heels of the depressing mediocrity of the Dark Ages, came an era of outstanding human thought, aptly called 'The Renaissance'.

Competitive ads can be fun.
What possible use could Twitter have for a zoo? How can a zoo use a social media platform like Twitter to drive engagement? It could talk about the exotic animals housed in the zoo (if there are such animals), it could talk about the zoo's many features and stuff like that. But are these guaranteed to drive engagement and ultimately an interest to visit the zoo? Unlikely.

Never mind how the locals say it. In mispronouncing the name of a foreign land, you truly make it yours.
Gossip over drinks at Gutter Bar is an oddly intimate experience. Maybe the alcohol there is spiked.
Contrary to popular Indian belief, the roads in Cannes are barely litter-free. All thanks to generously spewed cigarette butts.
There's a sea of knowledge to tap into at the International Festival of Creativity. Consider, for instance, McCann Melbourne's Dumb Ways to Die viral film.
The many faces of Cannes.

Catches win Matches: Life presents opportunities to all of us all the time. It's upon us whether we 'catch' them and make the most out of them, or dismiss them indifferently.
There is a marketing conundrum as old as the expansion of product categories itself: the battle between the high-volume lure of low-priced products, and the attraction of the prestige of low-volume high-priced products. These East and West twain of the marketing did not meet for a long time. So there was a Mercedes and there was a Volkswagen. Or Parker pens and low priced quasi-brands.
The retirement of Manchester United's legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson, has left a humongous void not just in British football, but in world sport as such.
The prospect of not having the fiery Scotsman, barking directives from the touchline, is a scary one for most Red Devil fans. Few can even contemplate how the club will cope with his absence. Such has been his colossal influence as an inspiring leader and peerless motivator.
