Leaving aside Amitabh Bachchan and Rajnikanth (perhaps the last two superstars in the real sense), it would be the Khans -- Shah Rukh (SRK), Aamir and Salman -- who totally dominate the celebrity lead...

A new idea... grab it before it is taken! You've obviously heard of engineers opting to spend a couple of years in an IIM or some lesser institute for an MBA and then settling down to sell soaps or th...
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) cannot be dismissed as a mere farce. It needs to be deployed in action and also be eligible for the same bravery awards as sales or brand-building, so to say. This part of the organizational strategic plan is not about charity alone... in fact, there is no charity anywhere.

Loyalitis is a condition that affects 1 in 4 adults, and is defined by certain characteristic traits. It starts with an inability to say NO, when the smiling customer service agent (usually an attractive person of the opposite gender) explains the benefits and perks of their 'unique' Loyalty or Reward program in a soft, dusky and slightly heavy voice, while their perfume dulls your senses and makes you take irrational decisions.

It's time for marketers everywhere to wake up and smell the coffee... errr... Cappuccino. If you think the generation currently with the most spending power is going to stop texting long enough to look up from their smartphone screens to notice your two-minute commercial on TV, then think again.
The car's dismal performance proved that marketers should never undermine the role of human psychology while crafting their strategies. Our societal norms do not allow the ego of a man to drive around in a cute Nano -- it makes a lot more sense for the car to go for a novel (albeit risky) gender-based segmentation in the face of competition such as the recently launched Renault Kwid. Nano's future lies in becoming a symbol of "woman power", much like what the Scooty brands accomplished.
