The Aam Aadmi Party won in Delhi!


Wow! This is so unbelievable! AAP has won in Delhi?!

 Wait... Am I hearing this correctly? Really?

So, one person creates a political party, registers, stands for elections and Wins? That too in a year?
This is just like a movie script isn't it? Whoa...

AAP had a 'Clean Sweep'... LOL! Boy, did Congress lose badly... only 8 seats! But still, to come out at the top with BJP - THAT was unexpected. They won 28 seats in the 70-member House.

If they fall back, they will have lost everything for nothing. I think it is a good decision to form a government taking outside support from Congress, since BJP declined. Had BJP said yes to this it would hae been a win-win situation for them. But hey! Politics is Politics!

I'm not in the support of any political party as of now, as all of this pretty complicated. Who knows what will transpire at the very last moment of the Lok Sabha elections? Nevertheless, the good news is that Kejriwal will be the new CM of Delhi after 3 continuous wins & reigns by Sheila Dikshit.

Kejriwal's rules and policies have also sent shivers down the spines of  those who wanted to join AAP for fun. There may be a lot more on it's way from the AAP from the looks of it. What happens, only time will tell...

Quality - Providing Quality


Another aspect of the industry is deceiving people about the quality of their product.

Following are the cases that we have recently heard about:

- There are many companies out there that do this kind of malpractice. They misinform the customer about their quality policies and their practices for quality control.
- There are also those who duplicate products and sell them in a similar packing as the original one to let the   customer believe that they are buying the right product.
- Some use the logos of the government approving bodies to show that they are selling authentic products.
- Certain manufacturers mimic the quality seal of the original ones to camouflage the falsity.
- There are also those who 'Re-use' the packaging material of the product to fill cheap, unhygienic, and duplicate goods and sell them as original at lower prices.

All these factors and many more largely affect the industry, and more importantly the customer. Many customers often buy the duplicate goods and judging by the poor quality, they stop using that brand. This in return leads to huge losses to the company.

Today there are many such counterfeit products being sold in the market that are similar to the original and sold at astonishingly low rates. Every now and then there are reports in the news about duplicates being caught in the market, off-location production units being surrounded, raids being conducted, and what not!

As a result of these activities, there is rapid development in the packaging industries to revolutionise the raw and packing materials. Efforts are being made to combat such crimes using state of the art technologies. It is the right of the consumer/customer to get a quality product, and he should not be deprived of this. Providing quality has to be the priority of the manufacturer, failing which there are many prevailing laws that will serve justice.

AAP vs. BJP vs. Congress


So, here it is: The Battle Royale!
Aam Aadmi Party Vs. BJP Vs. Congress. Who will win the Delhi elections?
The suspense continues!!!

BJP has been trying very hard to lure the voters by promises and Narendra Modi aka NaMo as their candidate for the post of PM, Congress is taking it easy and may go ahead with Rahul Gandhi. AAP is looking like the fore runner in the race, with Arvind Kejriwal getting max response from the public.

The battle for the throne of the CM of Delhi is reaching the climax. At this point anything may happen!
Sheila Dikshit is against Kejriwal's party, and who knows what might happen!

Let's hope whatever happens happens for the good and for the people of Delhi.

Quality & Production


This image "briefly" describes the relation between the Quality Department and the Production Department!

In each and every organization or company, there is a thin red line between the Production dept. and the Quality dept. As we all are aware, Quality is the prime of any product these days, and if a company fails in this, and there is any mishap due to it, there arise great problems. So, every company tries to keep their products in check and give priority to the Quality.

But, there is also the other side of production of materials that has to happen. If there is no production, there will be no materials going to the market, and thus the company will incur losses, sometimes massive amounts. If there is no material in the market, the customer will simply go for another brand, and you stand a great risk of losing that customer forever. Moreover, the company is bound to gain a bad name due to all of this, and some competitors might even tarnish the company's reputation.

However, the thing is, during some huge orders or production rush due to demand, some companies tend to sideline the quality aspect, which negatively affects their brand, and the competitor acquires profits and customers. Why is Production given priority?
Mainly because production leads to collection of income from the market, and some companies are so obsessed with the money, that they forget about the customer.

If any product fails in the market, or the company receives a complaint in case the above scenario is followed, the Quality Dept. is blamed for it. But, if the product does not reach the market, the Production Dept. is blamed. It is neither the fault of either of them. Sometimes there is a discrepancy with the transport, or warehousing, or even finance dept. but they are not blamed. It is solely the fault of poor management and flawed planning by the company that spoils the name of a brand.

There are many companies which do not face these issues, and thus there is never a Quality versus Production issue. Such companies have acquired the utmost respect of the customer; but that is not all - the company has to strive even harder to keep up that image. Everything in a company is inter-dependent. Sales and Marketing are also equally important.

However, if there is synonymy between Quality & Production, your brand will be at the top sooner than you can imagine!

Why are the US Presidents so hyped?


 The first question that I often ask myself is this: "Why are the US Presidents so hyped?"

This is not the scenario every time, but mostly whenever I'm watching a movie about E.T.'s or Aliens etc. Right from the cartoons, to the illustrations, to the television series to the movies, only one thing is displayed - Aliens always land in America!

Why? Why only USA? Why not any other country? There are many powerful nations today in the world than you might think that are giving the USA a run for power.

Why do aliens have to visit the President of the USA only? Are there no worthy presidents on this planet? Is there not a single soul who is smarter than the President of the USA? Then why the hell are those aliens hellbent on particularly visiting him?

We are all familiar with the particularly old quote when the aliens land on Earth and want to make contact with human, they'll say: Take us to your leader...
Which - if read carefully suggests that the Aliens assume there is a single leader of this planet. And guess who the world turns to... The President of the USA. Why? Because, the aliens did not want to make contact with the geniuses, brilliant minds, and the smarties of our planet, and instead chose to speak to the Prez.

Who made him the King of the World? The panel of country leaders around the world can make decisions, and no one can speak for the fate of the entire planet by himself! All this is more of misinformation.
Be it the UFO sightings, or Abductions by aliens, or Crop circles - everything happens and starts first in the USA. Right from the Moon mission controversies, to the Presidential controversies, the Assassination controversies - everything has to happen there!

As for the controversies and all, I can only say, that every country has it's fair share of controversies, but very few of them actually allow it to surface let alone share them. It is just that the entertainment industry there, tends to make a mountain out of a speck, which leads to questions, to doubts, to hypothesis, right till the controversy. The government may have a few tricks up its sleeves which it doesn't want to reveal. Enter 'The Showbiz'! I'm not a conspiracy theorist or anything but neither do I deny the existence of such claims.

If I didn't know any better, I'd say that USA is all about providing the best entertainment.

Yes, now you get it - the movies, those television shows, etc. Hollywood is the heart of this country, wouldn't you agree? And the patriotism is reflected in any and every possible manner in the showbiz. They all believe in their Country and its President, and these hold the topmost place for any American I guess. There are very few other countries who respect their leaders so much, which if I may, I'd say are Russia and the UK.
The makers base their shows around their countries and its political status. Well, the proof that supports this is that some people globally know who is the President of the USA, but don't know who is the president of their own country! Shocker? Yeah! I know a few people like that...

However, the presidents have been at the receiving end of many spoofs and comedy movies for eg. in Monsters vs. Aliens, Scary Movie 3, etc. to name a few. It's nothing but pure entertainment, but a way of expressing humor and satire, which is lovely and enjoyed thoroughly.

I'm no hater, I love the country and someday I'll visit simply for the sheer awesomeness! It's about time the other countries started to hype their respective national leaders in a similar manner! Maybe then no one will ask such a question.

I really love comic books, and I just came across some images on the internet and they got me wondering who would win if the characters from DC Comics and Marvel Comics were pitted against each other.

Many know that both these rival companies share similar characters, but we are not pitting similar powered characters, this is all about more of a sort of curiosity thing as we have never thought about this more often... Your opinions are more than welcome and you can comment in the 'Comment Section' at the bottom of the page.

Here Goes:
Lex Luthor vs. Ultron

Brainiac vs. Thanos

Darkseid vs. Apocalypse

Two Face vs. Kingpin

Green Lantern vs. The Flash

Reverse Flash vs. Carnage

Doomsday vs. Galactus

Sinestro vs. Dr. Doom

Quality - How & Why?


Quality is the single most important word that channels our lives.

As I mentioned earlier, today we have realised the importance of 'Quality'. Not only in our lives and surroundings but also in our products.

First questions first! How do we maintain Quality?
Quality can only be maintained or improved upon or worsened. It is like energy, it can neither be created nor destroyed.Creation of quality is entirely up to you.

Lets understand everything from the point of view of a company, manufacturing products. You know that your product has to be the best amongst the rest. So, what do you do? You start with your Manufacturing unit - How it is maintained, what is the frequency, steps taken, precautions, etc. The basics are entirely up to how you want your own company to run - smoothly & efficiently, or bumpy and problematically. Everyone has that basic idea that the company has to be clean, disinfected, sanitised, etc. We are well aware what steps we need to take to make our product the best.

Now, as some may not be aware there are Licenses given by the governing bodies of your particular countries that are indicative of the standards that are being maintained by you. You have to follow their guidelines for your company, failing which your license is cancelled, and a beautiful lock rests on the door of your company. It may be difficult at times, but the real challenge is trying to better yourself than the set standards and having the determination to maintain the quality of your products at all costs.

Quality of a product indicates the honesty of your company towards your customers. For example - who would buy a packet of chips - if it was shabbily packed, or if it was poorly processed, or if it had a bad taste, poor appearance, if you fell sick on eating it - the answer is no one! Also, if a consumer complained about it, you are bound to go to prison. And if an unwanted/foreign material is found in your product, boy you are in some deeeeep trouble!

Everyone of us wants the best product at competitive prices, having maximum appeal and brilliant packaging. Better your quality, follow protocol, never compromise for anything less!

Mc Donald's - Some fun facts


This is pretty old, but I still thought of mentioning it!

I don't know why all the facts and figures and stuff, when we all are very well aware what this stuff is doing to our bodies, and what it is doing to our countries.

Well, even though, many have had a taste of their food. No matter what the allegations or proofs, they have managed to stay alive.

McDonald’s Trivia:

• Their smallest restaurant is found on the Ginza in Tokyo and measures only 492 square feet.

• Ronald McDonald speaks more than 25 different languages.

• The sun never sets on the golden arches.

• Every four hours a new McDonald's opens some where.

• McDonald's is the world's biggest fast-food burger chain, with locations in 119 countries worldwide.

• The oldest building housing a McDonald's has a structure dating back to the thirteenth century and is located in Shrewsbury, England.

• They serve over 46 million people daily, having sold well over 100 billion hamburgers.

• Outside of the U.S. the largest McDonald's market is Japan, where there are more than 3,000 restaurants operating.

• In Japan Ronald McDonald is known as Donald McDonald, or Uncle McDonald.

• The only continent not having McDonald's (yet) is Antarctica.

• The busiest McDonalds serves 40,000 people daily and is located in Moscow.

• Ronald McDonald has a big "understanding" his shoes are a size 14 ½ or as he states "extra long by extra wide by extra red.".

• Part of the company's global approach is to offer unique menu items in each country. From the chicken Maharaja Mac in India (where religious beliefs prohibit eating beef, the "Big Mac" is changed into the "Maharaja Mac", a mutton/lamb burger) to shrimp burgers in Japan, to beer and bratwurst in Germany; Pork burgers and even Spaghetti. Just as cultural food tastes differ so does cultural McDonald's menus; enjoying a large variety such as salmon, beer, and rice.

• McDonald's sell more than 1/3 (33%) of all the French fries sold in restaurants in the U.S. each year.

• McDonald's once bought 54,000,000 pounds of fresh apples. Five years ago, that figure was a big, fat, zero -- the apples they bought for their apple pies were already cooked and canned. Apple purchasing rise dramatically when McDonald's started offering fresh apple slices as a healthy alternative to fried sides. This is attributed to the shift to more healthy menu options.

• Nearly one in eight workers in the US has at some time been employed by McDonald's. Do you know eight working people? Chances are, at one point in his or her career, one of those people worked at McDonald's. Statistics show that 1 in 8 people in the American workforce are currently or at one time have been employed by the fast food chain. 

• Sälen in Sweden opened the first SKI-THROUGH McDonald's in the world.

• More than 50,000 students from all over the world have graduated with "Bachelor of Hamburgerology" degrees from McDonald's "Hamburger University".

• McDonald's three kosher restaurants in Israel are the only McDonald's in the world where you cannot buy a cheeseburger.

• Sarah Michelle Gellar was sued by McDonald's at the age of four. She appeared in a Burger King advert where she said, “Do I look 20 per cent smaller to you? I must have at McDonald's because their hamburgers are 20 per cent smaller than Burger King’s.” It was the first time a company used another company’s name in an advert so McDonald’s sued Burger King, the advertising agency, and Sarah herself.

• Since its founding in 1955, McDonald's has sold well over 100 billion hamburgers.

• The northernmost McDonald's restaurant is located on the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi, Finland, while the southernmost franchise is located in Invercargill, New Zealand. Also, the world's easternmost McDonald's is located in New Zealand, in the city of Gisborne; the westernmost restaurant is in Western Samoa, as they are the closest to either side of the International date line.

• In Hong Kong, China, the $1,3000 "Warm and Sweet Wedding Package" is a way for couples and their guest to celebrate their love of each other and Big Macs at the same time by getting married in a McDonald's restaurant. The wedding package includes a "cake" make of stacked apple pies and Happy Meal toy party favors for the guests.
