COVID-19: The Hardest Hit Industry is Not what you think

Which do you think is the hardest hit industry segment due to COVID-19? While all other industries will rebound quickly, there is one industry that cannot rebuild itself for a considerable amount of time. That industry is already seasonal, now this. I think you should have guessed the industry by now – Tourism. There are more people who are dependent on the investment-heavy tour industry than you think. That’s because tourism has been a fast-growing industry in recent times. I cannot give a quick solution to such a huge problem in a small blog post. However, I can give an […]

Be ready to be surprised – Almost everything we are doing with food might be WRONG! Here are my Key Learnings from this Event – Drink a good amount of water […]

Audiobooks – My new way to Read (Listen)!

Since most of my work involves the laptop, my eyes get tired easily nowadays. I generally work for 45 minutes or 1 hour and then take a break. During the breaks, I am unable to see the TV or read as my eyes need rest. So I was wondering how to engage myself productively during that time. That’s when I came across Audible Audiobooks. I have been listening to eBooks even before – I use a text to speech app on my Android phone, and a robotic voice would read books/documents to me. As you could guess, this was not […]

Is Chai Kings the Inexpensive Coffee Day we Always Wanted?

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rajesh K (@wowsuper_net) on Mar 8, 2020 at 3:01am PDT When I was in Sales Career, 1.5 Decades ago, I used to be a regular customer of a few small tea shops. Although the tea and snacks were tasty, the ambiance was not. Back then I was not concerned about hygiene much. As a tea lover, I used to envy coffee lovers as they had Coffee Day. I liked only two of their flavors – Mocha & Tropical Iceberg. Besides, these were quite expensive. So I couldn’t go there as often […]

Kannagi Nagar Wall Paintings @ Chennai

You’ll be surprised to know the latest tourist destination of Chennai – it’s Kannagi Nagar, a fisherman resettlement colony! Yesterday I went to a Photo Walk organized by Madras Photo Bloggers to Kannagi Nagar to take some snaps of the beautiful wall paintings that have recently decorated the apartments there, thanks to St+Art India and Asian Paints.

My Book Trailer Video for The Archers Revenge

I am sure you all remember the book I wrote and published around five-years ago – The Archers Revenge. It’s a crime fiction/thriller novella. Nowadays, as I am creating videos, I thought why not create a video trailer for my own book? So after a week’s efforts, here it is – The Book Trailer 🙂 This trailer runs just for 45s, still, it takes so much time to make. I created this video from scratch, didn’t use any template – btw. I have used page flipping animation so that the book feel is retained even in the video format. I […]

Let’s Collaborate!

I noticed that it’s ME who’s writing posts and creating videos for this blog. And I’ve been doing that for more than a decade! I think things should change a little now that I have grown and matured with all that experience. My second decade of blogging will involve two things, I am going to involve the community by creating guest posts, interviews, journalistic articles about them, etc. In short, I am going to shift my direction to highlight the wonderful things others are doing. I am going to create content not only in this blog but also on my […]
