Churumuri carries a story today where Airtel is conducting an SMS poll about Bob Woolmer’s death. They are going to make money our of every reply sent.

Is that what we have come to? Use any excuse to make money even if it means dragging a dead person into the picture?

Looks like the media (TV, Newspapers etc), and Communication companies revel in making money out of sensationalism. How else can you explain the gory pictures you see on TV and in the papers?

Have we really stooped so low?

Bharti Enterprises announced their much anticipated foray into the retail space. That makes them the latest in a list that includes Walmart, Reliance among others.

This brings me to my favorite subject – The Small Retailer

Will any of these large brands harness the small retailer? Does the entry of these big guns make business sense for the small guy?
