How To Memorize So You’ll Never Forget?

In my growing up years, I don't know from where I picked this one line which I thought made me look very cool. My brain's like a sieve Looking back, I don't know how cool it made me look, but saying it over and over certainly damaged my memory quite badly. I have hence learnt the importance of using our super computer brain cautiously to say the least, so that we don't end of digging our own grave. Tanav and I recently did a discussion about the techniques to use to memorize things or words so that we never forget it ever. Here's it is:

How To Give A Useful Speech Evaluation

I have already covered this in a previous blog but just to test it out, I applied this technique in the last club meeting. Voila, it worked, and I won not only the Best Evaluator among four extremely talented evaluators but also the table topics. Well, that's because the table topics was different this time. Our VP Education was the Table Topics master and she's an innovator. So, she played a three minute Priyanka Chopra speech, which she then asked the Table Topics Speaker's to evaluate, based on her selected areas such as Share one Commendation, a Recommendation, and Summ


How To Capture Full Scrolling Web Page Screenshot

Don't you often feel the need to capture the entire webpage in one single screenshot. Either a PDF or an image.

How To File MCD Property Tax

Indian government websites and apps have forever been a tough nut to crack. Include in it the Aarogya Setu app, L&DO website (Central government) or the MCD website. Although they do help us get some work done faster but may be they want us not to forget the legacy of unnecessary delay and bureaucratic easily. May be it is part of their "Business" requirements. Anyway, before something changes, or breaks on the latest MCD process of filing the Property Taxes, here's the process for you: What I figured recently was that the old website of MCD has changed, and they si


How to Get Started with Your Financial Goalsetting

There is one thing common among all human beings - that is that they're all different. It's the same with our aspirations, beliefs, and circumstances. They're very different even when we're in the same age group, or if we studied in the same college. That's what makes financial goalsetting a rather unique planning with no one size fits all solution. Here's Mr Bean's journey, his situation but the process he followed could benefit others as well. Confide in someone who knows: There is a concept of a sniper approach versus a machine gun approach in management. A machine


How To Structure an Evaluation Contest Speech

What's most important as an evaluator is to have an evaluation framework ready. It could be different for you and me, and it could be different even for you at different occasions. But the main point is to have a framework ready. As a matter of fact, the same thing applies to impromptu (Table Topic) speeches as well. If you have that you could use your initial 15-20 seconds to put the topic in that framework, before giving it a go. While one can simply say that the Beginning, Body and Close (BBC) is already there, then why does one need anything else. Well, the reason is th

This is a real time journey to my PSK1 certification. It's raw and caters my process of learning in general and collection of information specific to PSK1 certification. After all, a lot of the blockbuster blogs originated from what started from scratching their own itch. So, here we go, with mine Background: Office is offering Agile certifications and I would love to avail one. But going in for the CSM or PSM would be an overkill for me.

ITI, Indian Telephones Industries, was the 1st Indian PSU. It was established in 1948 to serve the telephony requirements primarily those of the government. With the privatisation in 80s and liberalisation in 1990s the company was thrown open to competition which evenutally led to it being declared a sick unit in 2003-4. But the story doesn't end there.
