foot-care-kitVLCC launched its foot care solution (as they call it) Pedi Glow recently and i happened to try it! It was a impluse buy at the super market but turned out to be quite effective. The pack contains a liquid wash for the feet, a scrub, cream and a spray. The entire collection has a lovely orange fragrance! It instantly refreshes the feet and leaves behind a beautiful fragrance… Its ideal for women after a long day’s work… I specifically said women cause we do a lot of work and that too wearing heels.

This is a great product, it alomst comes close to giving one’s self a pedicure at home and is extremely affordable. Although i am not a great fan of the foot spray in pack. for a foot spray i would recommend The Body Shop – peppermint foot spray anyday!

Who’s not Tweeting?? July 1, 2009

button_twitterEveryone is…Tweeting~ ;-). I was shocked & surprised to find NDTV using twitter as a tool in Rakhi Sawant’s Swayambar.. yep thats true Rakhi Sawant is Tweeting directly from the Fateh Garh Fort in Udaipur. Who else is Fever 104, the famous music director Vishal Dadlani, Pepsi, Nike all the brands are right there~!


I just read this great article on the most successful brands using twitter and the real people behind them… Its a great read. Brand communicators are increasingly coming to terms with social media. Smart brands use social media smartly!

Many discard it, tossing the measurablity element. However social media communications and by this i dont mean banner ads on social networks.. brands a part of permission led marketing communications which is far more effective than other traditional means of communications.  For example who cares what a car company has to say in 140 characters or less, right? Well,  some of the biggest car manufacturers are using the medium (twitter)to connect with customers, fight misconceptions, and convince people to give their vehicles a test drive. The brands, and the people behind them, highlighted here are engaging with their biggest fans and critics, and they’re doing it all via real-time tweets.


  1. Every single second of every single day, Twitter’s 5 Million users mention brands they LOVE and HATE. AND Twitter is growing at a rate of 1382% per year (Source: Twitter Search, Forrester Research)
  2. 13 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute
  3. There are more than 133 million blogs in the world (Source: Technorati)
  4. Facebook has more than 200,000,000 users worldwide (Source: 



Kaun banega Rakhi ka pati?

I have a sense that a large part of this nation is following Rakhi’s Swayambar. It started this monday and i must admit its quite entertaining!! Whatever said and done, this woman has managed to glue an entire nation to the television set for an hour! Good thinking by the NDTV creative team.


when the ads for this show began to appear more than a month back, I wondered which man in his right senses would want to do something like this. But once i saw the candidates it all fell in place…

I mean struggling actors, models, stunt men etc etc…. although they all add another qualification to their set of credentials but its not rocket science to figure that most of them need a stepping stone in bollywood and our drama queen will be that step – should the wedding happen! and guess what Rakhi is tweeting direct from fateh Garh Palace.

I have followed the show last 3 days and here is my take, each episode Rakhi gives a gift / token to one or two participants (and the man is obviously on cloud 9). My gut is that she would keep giving away something or the other and keep the suspense on… and then finally it will be one pati who winner!

the TRP is 3.5 which is higher than an IPL match!

and this is only 3 days into the show…there is more action coming up!


Its a new day

There has been so talk going on about the world going 2.0! blogs seems to have become a done thing! The CEO of Yahoo joins a VC firm as a resident entreprenuer to figure cloud computing! Every one is talking micro blogging, tweets are catching up and suddenly there is a huge information overload.

Nevertheless web 2.0 is a great source of information exchange and I am so looking forward to my journey here!
