Indian politics, data analysis and data security

I am reading a lot of fuss about data privacy and leaks? Apparently political parties are using Social Media and Data Analytics to influence elections. But how is it new to us? Indian politics has always been influenced by data alone. That it has transformed from sheets of A4 size paper to digital format is a mere progression. We Indians have had never any privacy over our personal data. How do you think we kill people during riots? Using data sheets from electoral rolls to check where people practicing a particular religion live. Governments have the caste census done so that we know who will win the election. Because we vote for castes. Elections in India are always about data analysis.That is how you get a ticket from a political party. That's how psephologists predict who will win the election. The dominant caste decides the verdict eventually. So you got to know which is the dominant caste and which way will it swing. In India, we have at least 10 or more centr

It delves deep into the business drivers of digital revolution that’s happening all around us.  The authors have used data and facts to underscore the significance of digitization in today's time.

Wah Amritsar! - Supermart-2 - Gurgaon

As you enter the Supermart- 2 building in Sushant Lok in Gurgaon, the fancy yellow board carrying the distinct logo of Wah! Amritsar catches your eye. Since past 4 years this place has been treating delightful Punjabi and North Indian cuisine to its clientele building up excellent goodwill in the region. I have had heard many good things about this place in the past, especially about the famed chicken dishes so I decided to visit the outlet and taste some of their delicacies. The place is mostly known for its quick home delivery service and takeaway but I found a few comfortable seating options too. They even have some tables outside if weather permits outdoor seating. The menu is quite vast and has a lot of options but its the Punjabi dishes or the dishes done with the Punjabi touch that leave a mark. Case in point is the Tawa Chicken. Its cooked well in spices with chunks of chicken with a thick gravy. If one is looking beyond the usual Butter and Karhai Chicken

Brij Literature Festival - GLA University Mathura - January 2018

On 27th - 28th January, 2018, Literario, the student literature club of GLA Mathura organized the Brij Literature Festival. Literary festivals are great places to be at and when the students asked me to visit this one, I felt humbled.  They requested me not only to visit the festival but also deliver workshops, my signature blogging workshop and another one on story telling. The festival itself was very well planned. The students, members of this club I mentioned, had really sweated it out to create a perfect event. I even remarked this to one of their professors, who confirmed that yes, it was the hard work of the students which really reflected on the success of the Fest. Here are some images shared by the amazing people at GLAU.
