marketing blunders

5 comments:
1. Coors put its slogan, "Turn it loose," into Spanish where it was read as "Suffer from diarrhea."

2. Scandinavian vacuum manufacturer Electrolux used the following in an American campaign: Nothing sucks like an Electrolux.

3. Clairol introduced the "Mist Stick", a curling iron, into German only to find out that "mist" is slang for manure. Not too many people had use for the "manure stick."

4. When Gerber started selling baby food in Africa, they used the same packaging as in the US, with the beautiful Caucasian baby on the label. Later they learned that in Africa, companies routinely put pictures on the label of what's inside, since most people can't read.

5. Colgate introduced a toothpaste in France called Cue, the name of a notorious porno magazine.

6. An American T-shirt maker in Miami printed shirts for the Spanish market which promoted the Pope's visit. Instead of "I saw the Pope" (el papa), the shirts read "I saw the potato" (la papa).

7. Pepsi's "Come alive with the Pepsi Generation" translated into "Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the grave", in Chinese.

8. Frank Perdue's chicken slogan, "it takes a strong man to make a tender chicken" was translated into Spanish as "it takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate."

9. The Coca-Cola name in China was first read as "Ke-kou-ke-la", meaning "Bite the wax tadpole" or "female horse stuffed with wax", depending on the dialect. Coke then researched 40,000 characters to find a phonetic equivalent "ko-kou-ko-le", translating into "happiness in the mouth."

10. When Parker Pen marketed a ball-point pen in Mexico, its ads were supposed to have read, "it won't leak in your pocket and embarrass you." Instead, the company thought that the word "embarazar" (to impregnate) meant to embarrass, so the ad read: "It won't leak in your pocket and make you pregnant."

Funny Facts

If time doesn't wait for you, don't worry!
Just remove the damn battery from the clock and Enjoy life!

Expecting the world to treat u fairly coz u r a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack u coz u r a vegetarian. Think about it.

Don't walk as if you rule the world, walk as if you don't care who rules the world! That's called Attitude! Keep on rocking!

Every lady hopes that her daughter will marry a better man than she did and is convinced that her son will never find a wife as good as his father did!!!

He was a good man. He never smoked, drank & had no affair. When he died, the insurance company refused the claim.
They said, he who never lived, cannot die!

A man threw his wife in a pond of Crocodiles?
He's now being harassed by the Animal Rights Activists for being cruel to the Crocodiles!

So many options for suicide: Poison, sleeping pills, hanging, jumping from a building, lying on train tracks, but we chose Marriage,
slow & sure!

Only 20 percent girls have brains, rest have boyfriends!
All desirable things in life are either
illegal, banned, expensive or married to someone
else!

Laziness is our biggest enemy- Jawaharlal Nehru
We should learn to love our enemies- Mahatma Gandhi
Ab aap bataaye kiski sune - bapu ji ya chacha ji???

When things go wrong, when sadness fills your heart, when tears flows from your eyes always say these words:
Eh Ganpat, chal daru la.

10% of road accidents are due to drunken driving. Which makes it a logical statement that 90% of accidents are due to driving without drinking!

THE PREGNANT GIRL

2 comments:
Young unmarried girl discovers that she is pregnant.

Scared??..She confides this ' news' to her mother.

Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, "Who was the pig that did This to you?

I want to know!" The girl picks up the phone and makes a call. Half an hour later a Ferrari stops in front of their house; a mature And distinguished man with gray hair and impeccably
dressed in a very expensive suit steps out of it and enters the house.



He sits in the living room with the father, the mother and the Girl, and tells them: "Good morning, your daughter has
informed me of the Problem. However, I can't marry her because of my personal family Situation, but I'll take responsibility.


If a girl is born I will bequeath her 2 retail stores, a townhouse, a beach villa and a $1,000,000 bank account.

If a boy is born, my legacy will be a couple of factories and a $2,000,000 bank account.


If it is twins, a factory and $1,000,000 each.


However, If there is a miscarriage or unsuccessful delivery , what do you suggest I do?"



At this point, the father, who had remained silent, places a hand firmly on the man's shoulder and tells him,











" You can try again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

3 comments:
Hi friends, As you know cricket is more than a game in India. In recent years due the IPL, which is one of the most valued game event of the world, it has become more politicized than ever was.

12. Replacing an injured foreign player can be done only through a Tatkal application submitted 48 hours after a Govt doctor examines him.



13. Cheerleaders will be replaced by retired Air-India flight attendants.



14. These new cheerleaders will perform the folk dances of the states they represent during breaks.



15. IPL matches will be shown only on Doordarshan. They will be telecast the day immediately following the match, from 4 a.m. to 7.30 a.m. and subsequently from 3.30 p.m. to 7p.m, subject to satellite link-up availability.



16. Between each innings break Doordarshan will telecast the news in Hindi, followed by news for the hearing impaired.

WAS GOD AN ASTRONAUT?

No comments:

 ‘Reading’ is my hobby. But I’m not a kind of bookworm who keeps reading all the time, putting all other things aside. But a modest reader who reads novels, newspapers, magazines, blogs, reports etc on a regular basis.  One day I read a lot and another not at all, but reading is affixed with my life firmly.

But the problem with me is that most of books I start reading never get a fair end and they are left unfinished. Mostly due to the zeal I have at the starting time may evaporate before I could finish the book. Only those books get a happy ending which have either a good story or I have some keen interest in the subject.

Today I finished a book; unfortunately the first reason was not there of reading, since the book has some dubious content.  It was ‘Chariots of the gods’ by Erich Van Daniken. Though it is not a great book but the subject of it was so absurd that I could not resist and have to read it.

In the book the author write about a very different theory, a totally different theory developed by himself, based on many natural evidences. It says that the humanity was transferred from some alien creatures to the earth some thousands years ago. To prove the theory he gave numerous examples including Easter Islands, Piri Ries Map, The plain of Nazca, Mahabharata, and a lot of other absurd and dubious examples. I’m stating those ‘dubious’ while the reading the book I was also googling the strange names, places and stories but couldn’t find much relevant content. Though the book was published on 1969 and it is 2010 today, and the level of research and the information available on that day and today have a very big difference.

Still the book provides a totally different angle and after reading the book you must be wondering that whether the theory is right or wrong, since there are so many evidences and examples to support it.

Here I would like to discuss the author’s view about Mahabharata, since I’m very comfortable with this particular topic. 

 According to the theory in Mahabharata the tale of Kunti who was made pregnant by God Sun and later gave birth to Karan, was in fact a example of how the astronomers from another world passed their genes to human.  They were the aliens whom our ancestors later depicted as Gods due to their immeasurable power and inhuman characteristics. They would come from the sky, passed their knowledge to our ancestors,  breed some women and returned to their place in the some far planet.

I won’t  rate the book as a very  good read but still the absurd theory makes it a must read book.

And in last in my opinion we have to accept sooner or later that we are not alone in this universe and the theory by Danikan has definitely a point, it may be wrong might be correct.

Need a laugh??? Just go through it...

18 comments:
Hello friends, this time I'm posting a collection of funny facts. Some of these facts you may have read earlier, otherwise most of these facts are new ones. So make laugh yourselves.


Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

If you’re too open-minded, your brains will fall out.

 Don’t worries about what people think; they don’t do it very often.

 Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

 Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

 My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

 It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.

 For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.

 If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.

 Bills travel through the post at twice the speed of cheques.

 A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.

 Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.

 No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

 A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

 Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.

 Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

 Junk is something you’ve kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

 There is always one more imbecile than you counted on!!

 Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

 By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

  Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

 If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you’ve never tried before.

You are unique and special, just like everyone else.

The man who walks far will always get there after the man with a car
Live every day like it's your last because one day you will be right!!!!
Behind every successful woman is a not so surprised man

A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiters, is not a nice person.

There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot.

Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in?
I think that's how dogs spend their lives.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

Character is what you are.
Reputation is what people think you are.

Drive carefully
It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

A loser is a window washer on the 44th floor who steps back to admire
his work.

A man usually feels better after a few winks, especially if she winks back.

Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate.

The facts, although interesting, are irrelevant.

There is always one more imbecile than you counted on. If at first you don't succeed ... well, so much for sky diving.
A man who says marriage is a 50-50 proposition doesn't understand two
things: 1 - Women, 2 - Fractions.

Harbhajan's Heroic Century Saved the Test

3 comments:
Very Very Special Laxman’s decent inning and Harbhajan Singh’s spectacular maiden ton were enough to save the first test match against severely wounded NZ that recently lost both test and ODI series by Bangladesh, a very ordinary cricket team to combat. It was a very rare test match having a very absurd turn that put the Indian team in an almost losing the match situation from nearly won the match situation, within mere 31 balls of pacer Martin. And by the end of day 4, India was in a very uncomfortable situation, having just 115 runs lead and already loses its six wickets. But both the player of Indian squad Laxman and Harbhajan saved the test which almost won by kiwis.  
"Bhajji tusi..........
RASGULLE ki pl8 ho,
PEPSI ka cr8 ho,
ANDE ka oml8 ho,
TUSI bade hi gr8 ho"
These are the lines wrote by a cricket fan, showing the love for heroic inning played by Harbhajan today. 


One more Indian fan commented "India to be no.1, its not because of dhoni's captaincy. Its all bcoz of the great players in indian team, and the platform set by the greatest captain ever for india that is sourav ganguly, the performing players are here bcoz of ganguly."

Dreams

1 comment:
It was always in my dreams, in my thoughts that one day the way I am living will change and the future will be more adventurous, humorous and full of life; but by every passing day or month or year, the thoughts and the dreams are looking more a distanced unachievable fantasy rather hopeful future. They consist no element of the reality of the life. They say that one should dream big, because the person who dreams big and sets goal a little higher, certainly achieves a better position in life than a person with small dreams in eyes. But what the use of dreaming big, if you are unable to achieve those.
A person's 90% fate or destiny being decided on the day s/he born, by his/her genetic heritage, social and economical environment. So if Bill Gates creates Microsoft, the social, economic and technological environment of the surrounding has as much credit as he. Another guy living in Myanmar couldn't create the giant, no matter how much intelligence he possess. It doesn't mean that people in America are more successful than others but of course they have a very big advantages over others. Now a days with the possible power shift from west to east, we may have next Bill Gates from a eastern county. It could be anyone except me. Anybody who recognize a very beautiful opportunity at the right time, but certain quality he will posses. Those qualities are Brilliance, hard working, opportunism and passion. Do you have all these????

I'm writing a novel

1 comment:
No, No, I'm not just joking, the title is as true as the honesty of hon-able Mr.Suresh Kalmari or that of Mr. Ashok Chavan. I'm very very serious about writing the novel, my first one though, but I'm sure I will make you forgive the greatest of great writers ever walked over this earth, as soon the novel reaches to you. Now I guess you want to ask me that what heavenly stuff I'm writing that making me so optimistic about this. So friends this super novel is not a regular novel with a fishy love story or a boring criminal saga or a super cooled booker winning stuff, which nobody could ever understood. This story is very special, first of all because I'm writing this, and other reason is that this is coming directly out of my super mind. You may wonder but it took me over 8 years to finish it's first para, only because it takes a lot of hard work to inking so great thoughts on paper. 
You will be surprised that I have even decided to make a movie based on the story of the novel. A movie which will demolish all the bloody records which are standing tall today. And the very first show of the movie will be screened at our parliament, which would be a historical event, since it would be the first time in history of Indian constitution that a great movie will be screened at the great parliament house.
Well the story of the so called novel or movie is about a son of a famous politician of India, the location of the politician doesn't matter since all the politician from across the country posses the same characteristics and the same character. The guy will be doing only one thing in the whole story, f****** pretty girls and women, as the our politician do, they even f*** all other living and long living creatures also. But as it happen in all 'lived happily ever' after kind of story the young guy will be caught in a supernatural kind of place and will lost his all the best friends and than will understand the true meaning of life.
But I'm not sure how many years it will take to finish the job of writing the novel. Here a simple math student can conclude that I'm going to finish it before the earth stops rotating or before all the Indian politicians turns into as honest person as Gandhi was.

THE FORGOTTEN HEROES

2 comments:
              From the ancient time soldiers of losing side on a war could expected to either killed or imprisoned for a long time. The first Roman gladiators were prisoners of war. In those times the purpose of war were economic and political gain, sometimes the purpose of a battle was to capture women, a practice known as raptio, means abduction. In middle ages, captors would take a large sum of money from the family of prisoners, specially in Europe. In WWII alone Nazis imprisoned some 4-5.7 million USSR's soldiers. Same time other countries also captured millions of PoWs. In 1971 India-Pakistan war India made 90,368 prisoners, which later released by Indian Government. These prisoners of war (PoWs) were being kept in a very inhuman conditions.  Still their are many prisoners are kept by different countries, but the fact is that the war had been over decade ago. 

           History says that thousands soldiers were imprisoned during the 1971 & 65, India-Pakistan war, most of those were released after the war. But some of those prisoners were not released and still  are in different jails, a the many reports have revealed, the exact number of such PoWs are unknown since both the countries are rejecting such a claims. But there are so many unbiased, independent,and authentic reports and people who are claiming that their are still some prisoners kept by the nations. Many times Indian government official have also accepted that Indian prisoners are kept in pakistani jails. But despite all these information the government couldn't get released those of unfortunate soldiers, even though more than four decade has been passed. Its very shameful to forget those heroes for such a long time. Although media raised the many times but no progress would made. 

According to Balwan Singh, an Indian prisoner who returned home to India on 3/10/1998 after 9 years in Pakistan prisons, claims to have met Indian, PoWs of the 1971 war. He said there were seven jails in which the PoWs were rotated. He distinctly remembered one of the PoWs as Jagdish Raj who was being kept in.
One more prisoner released by Pakistan Devinder Singh of Kashmir, was arrested in Pakistan on December 20, 1989 and returned to India on March 17, 2005 through Wagah Border along with 20 other Indian prisoners. He says that some 100 Indian prisoners were languishing in Pakistani jail in a very painful condition. Many of them had become lunatic and insane and had been painfully waiting for their release since 1971 Indo-Pak war.

Now if the government has such a information about those prisoners why it doesn't act to get those heroes out of the hell.

Hey GOD!!! Are You There???

10 comments:
The title of the article may seem a little crazy since it clearly gives a message that the writer doesn't believe or at least is not sure about the existence of the so called omnipresent God, and Atheism or agnosticism are considered some sort of craziness on the planet Earth. There are a hefty number of people distributed in different nationality, religion, age,  proffession etc. who considered themselves atheist or agnosticism.The number goes upto 85% in countries like Sweden, who prefer to be non-religious; Denmark, Finland, Norway are also not too behind.

As some people may think, Atheism is not a new phenomenon. Ancient Hindus founded 'Atheistic school' and it existed from historical vedic religion.  Among the six historical schools in ancient India, 'Samakhya' and 'Mimansa' rejected the notion of God. However the 'Carvaka' school which was originated in 6th century BC was most explicitly Atheist school of ancient India. In modern time many religions are allowing their follower to be a atheist, Jainism and Buddhism are more open in this sense. 
 It is not that Atheism is spreading and Religious bodies are not doing anything, they are doing all the possible thing for maintain their religion's popularity. Recently Pope Benedict XVI said that Atheism is like Nazism. The church have been criticizing and thrashing all the atheist activities for the centuries, but even it's punishments could not stop the juggernaut of Atheism. 
Now the question remains intact that does God exist or not. I won't give the usual answer of this question that it depends on your belief. To me it doesn't matter what is your belief, since your belief can't change the reality. If the God doesn't exists and somebody say I believe in God so that will create a God but only in his dreams. Their are many evidences which gives some idea about the existence of God but unfortunately we don't believe anything without  experiencing it. Also evidences are innumerable and a single evidence has n number of meanings attached with it.  So only in one condition we can say that God exist if come and tell us that hello, look at me, I'm real. Without that we can not say that he is not a creation of our mind but a thing with a tag attached with it, saying 'AUTHENTICATED'

Mature enough to appreciate your views; immature enough to read and forget all the criticism....

STAY HUNGRY STAY FOOLISH

1 comment:
For a long time I was thinking to write an article about this book, but only now I could manage to find some free time for it. I'm not a type of person who write with cotton in ears but some peaceful environment is must to concentrate one's thoughts in a proper way. So after gathering my strength, here we go.....
'STAY HUNGRY STAY FOOLISH' is a book by Indian writer Rashmi Bansal. Published in 2008, this book talks about 25 IIM Ahmedabad graduates who choose their own path, a path of entrepreneurship. These people defied the system which forces students to be a part of rat race which ends up leaving them en-caged forever. Among these people some are very well known names in the Indian Corporate, such as Sanjeev Bhikhchandani, R subramaniam, Narendra Murkunbi, Nirmal Jain etc who achieved a very reputed position in business world. Choosing entrepreneurship over hefty packages offered by top MNCs was not a easy decision for them but the passion and determination to create a new path of their own made it possible. They faced many hurdles on their way, some small, some big, but never quit and the rest is history.
The author of the book is well known writer in India who writes about various aspects related to the young generation and a specialist in the area. Recent release by her is ‘CONNECT THE DOTS’ which is also a collection of real success story of 20 entrepreneurs. But unlike the last book for this book she choose 20 people who were not so educated and still achieved a very high position in the entrepreneurship, about that most of the executives can only dream of. 
The best thing about the book is that it describes success story of 25 people with different social and economic background, that’s why every reader can connect himself with the one or more stories due to resemblance of same social and economical background. Also reader gets  a clear view of those entrepreneurs in a single book, otherwise most of the books available in the market contains stories about a single entrepreneur.
Same time the worst thing about this book is that it only contains stories of IIMA graduates, but the same condition does not apply to the MBAs from other institutes.
Still the book is a must read since it gives a good insight about those of businessman's journey to success. I recommend it to all the student, executives and entrepreneurs who have not read it yet.

EVERYTHING IS FIXED

1 comment:
Once again Pakistan cricket's dirty face unveiled in front of the world by a sting operation of British newspaper 'news of the world'. When it came to light that a London based bookie is behind this fiasco in which seven players of Pakistan has been named for taking money for fixing the match, it became the most ashamed day for cricket. No Pakistani fan ever would have thought that their idol could do that for satisfying their greed. That's why news of pelting stone on donkeys with name written on those of the players are coming from Pakistan. 
The worst thing about this incident that this time the bookie were trying to fix very minute thing such as no-balls etc. This is called spot fixing which deals with fixing minor things instead of whole match fixing, that why it is very difficult to know that any thing like this is going on. In lord test three no-balls were fixed which delivered by Amir and Asif as claimed by Majeed.
By analyzing the seriousness of the issue ICC also suggested for banning the players for life in any format of international cricket. Such a demands came from many more cricket players and organization. Meanwhile Pakistan has denied to ban the players without full evidences. 
This is not the first time when any cricketer found indulging in match fixing and Pakistan had a long saga and expertise in this thing. Before this many international players from many nations have caught for this immoral deed. Cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin, Ajay Jadeja, Navjot Singh Siddu, Nikhil Chaupda, Saleem Malik, Herschelle Gibbs,  Nicky Boje, Mark Waugh Hancy Cronje, Shane Warne, Waqar,Wasim etc has been found involved in match fixing and faced charges.
Also cricket is not the only game which is facing charge of match fixing. In this league football, badminton, tannins etc have been in news for this particular thing.
Around one decade ago when many Indian players were found indulged in match fixing, many many people stop watching cricket match and Indian cricket took many years to come back on the track. Here it would be interesting that how Pakistan cricket will come out of this shit and how much time will it take.
