Be Average. Your Life. Your Rules


End of the year comments: Excellent, very good, can do better, needs supervision and improvement, etc. How many of us have gone through this during our entire academic life ? Why do we let other people's judgements, based on a totally ridiculous education system (some parts of it) decide what we become or are fit to become in our lives ? Studies don't define who you are as a person afterall (some would argue otherwise). Maybe on the professional front, yes. But there is a vast majority of our personal life as well on which studies have no control.

Fatigued by the obsession of flawless, a new generation of youngsters are shunning the pursuit of perfection. People nowadays have become smarter. In the process of learning how to face their biggest fears (insecurity, inferiority complex, social pressures etc) they have now embraced the fact that being excellent or perfect is not the ultimate goal. There is much more to that in life.
Being in the age group of 16 to 30 means being in a rat race where you are competing with a 1000 rats at the same time. Each hungrier than the other and after the same bit of cheese as you. But there is a new breed of youngsters who aim to be Buddhist Youths. These people accept the things they cannot change. They simply go with the flow. Running doesn't take you places. Your passion does.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story.


But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
