Advertisements at its best

Posted on Updated on

Our Bangalore team member Mr. Shanawas send me these. We all know that it is very difficult to capture the attention of consumers. Many times we glance through newspaper ads in full page, color and promising words. The cost for releasing such ads may go into thousands of Rupees or Dirhams. But they never remain in our mind or heart and fail to generate the intended results. However, many other times we see a small insert getting into the hearts of millinos.

This is one item that I was looking forward to, the Art of Presenting things in the right way within the right space and time. Here they are – some of the successful ones during year 2006.

Of course, you can revisit our Saturday Special news to imagine the value of time, space, content and deciding NO when it is required to – I am learning more about it by each week.

You will also see in due course some of the ones which failed to generate the results.



The four blessed looks

Posted on Updated on


A nice post by Vijay Kumar, please read on

The four blessed looks:

Look back and thank God.
Look forward and trust God.
Look around and serve God.
Look within and find God!”

“I asked God, ‘How do I get the best out of life?’

God said, ‘Face your past without regrets. Handle your present with confidence. And prepare for the future without fear!'”

“Without God, our week is: Mournday, Tearsday, Wasteday, Thirstday,Fightday, Shatterday and Sinday. So, allow Him to be with you every day!”

Life is short, so forgive quickly. Believe slowly. Love truly.
Laugh uncontrollably. Never regret anything that makes you happy.

Have a wonderful journey of life!

God bless!

Reflections of Rain

It’s raining heavily back home and getting the smell of it here. Not a recent one, but taken WHEN IT RAINED HERE IN ABU DHABI LAST YEAR. We too get one or two days of rain every year.

*Two moons on 27 August*

*27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for…*

Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August.

It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will
cultivate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth. Be
sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like the earth
has 2 moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it
again.

On your way – a display on a shop window in Abu Dhabi Hamdan Street

Posted on Updated on

Dear Members,

Many times during our hectic schedules we come across several funny things which will act as a refresher. This ad display at one of the shop in the main Hamdan Street in Abu Dhabi is one of them. You may find many during in your day’s running around. Do not hesitate to pass on. May be the artist who drew this poster was also rushing from one job to another and missed something very important. Many times, we too do the same – Missing something valuable for NOTHING.

Find beauty & humour in everything. Enjoy life as it is. Have a great day.
