Rajat Gupta feels that IIT’s need to be branded on the lines of Harvard, Stanford and MIT (via Rediff)

Freakonomics book review (via Financial Express)

Lateral thinking guru Edward de Bono keen to help out Indian cricket team

Kingfisher, Wills ad spared from surrogate ad ban. IMO given the controversial nature of these brands they should have not been allowed to start new products under the mother brand. Now that these products have become independent revenue generators ITC and UB Group have managed to convince the government that they should be allowed to use the name for products other than liquor and cigarettes.

Bill Gates working on new book. Given the noise Google is making, I don’t think Bill Gates should spend too much time concentrating on his new book.


  • Wow...so many interesting links and I do hope De Bono gets to work with the Indian team. He would bring a fresh perspective at least.

  • TMI. So I'll comment on the credit card thugs.

    Its a welcome decision. But in a country like India, where so many people default and there is no accountability how to handle defaulters and cheats.

    2. Chinese Kids - Every action has an opposite reaction. China succeeded in curbing the population growth but the kids are suffering.

    3. Branding of IIT - IMHO they don't need branding.!
