5 ways festive times can be used for networking

Born in family of  a farmer, I have seen many festival days over a year. To me festival means some elders will be invited over meal, may be one, ten or hundreds. My basic understanding about festival was when many grand parents from neighborhood will come to our home, priest will come to  offer prayers to God and then meal will be served. Kids will be asked to maintain silence or go in the open and play with aunts.
Ah, those were the good old days. Those days taught me a lot specially discipline and respect to elders. Do not raise fights with other kids was also a norm.
Very soon during my teens I realized we have many festival over the years. So for me best festive season were from Christmas to New Year; vacations, no homework, study what you want, when you want and enjoy crispy foods throughout the day. Crispy sweet delicacies were made specially during winters.
I started living alone during teens and became part of Metro cities. In all big cities I observed Diwali is celebrated in very high spirit. Many people call it a way of networking. My childhood festival time is arriving soon, In a span of Ten Days we are going to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Though there are no leaves from work like old days but I am pretty sure to enjoy my fair share again and here is the beginning.

5 ways festive times can be used for networking

1. Show your cooking skills. Personally I believe, if you are human and live in a civilize society you know to cook at least one recipe. Invite your friends and friends of friends; cook, serve and share on the tunes of your favorite song.

2. Send E-Greeting Cards to everyone. SAVE TREES. If you not a social media person then too you may have thousands of email addresses. Greet All. Extending a hearty wish is not a sin.

3. Teach Neighborhood Kids. Chose a holiday, go to the neighborhood and teach kids some good habits. It could be cleanliness or save environment or may be some algebra if the St. APJ Abdul Kalam is your forefather. 

4. Go for charity. If you are fortunate enough you may find some NGO near you. Talk to them and join the work. Also you can count of temples, mosques and churches or Gurudwara etc.

5. Organize or Take Part in Events. During festive times many events happen in and around us. Also you can organize your own. If you are organizing and even post event schedules in your local city directory, so many people can join you. 

KEEP YOUR BUSINESS CARD READY TO HANDOVER TO NEWLY MADE FRIENDS.

Wishing you all readers Merry Christmas and Very-Very Happy New Year

Information War, Personal Security and Me

Too much of anything is just bad. You cannot consume too much in your tummy, you cannot consume too much in your mind. I was never a social media person because if I don't know a person how can I interact and share my personal interests. However, at one point I worked for a social media company and created many accounts, written many social media guides and published online.
The noise that social media creates gives an illusion that you can make big things out of it. Though I never spend many hours on social media but I started sharing content on it, on and off, and with certainty I can say my own sites performed better without social sharing.
From my experiences I found going on many social channels means dilution of ideas. Because I am individual and not a company I cannot go to many social channels and create content. I don't have budget to appoint someone who can work for me on social media. If you are individual blogger like me and creating many social channels for sure…

Is push mail notification a non sense

Automation is good but is it reliable too?
For very long time Android phone was alien to me. But considering public demand of SEND ME Whatsapp rants lastly I invested in this idiot gadget.
Not more than 24 hours and I realized it's a complete waste of money given if you do not take too many photos and if you do not work in an android environment. But anyway hole was already burnt in my pocket.
Only one thing become easy for me that is reading email. I kept only emails on and relied on email notifications. However today no mails popped out. I thought may be everyone celebrating India's Republic Day.
I text message to CEO of reputed company regarding a pending email answer. He is a busy fellow. You can get him easily. Since matter was important I thought to give a text message.
Out of nothing I opened my email and found his reply which he did early morning.
SHOCKED.
Lesson learnt check your mail box manually before texting.
