 It was the summer of 1766 when Ivan Polzunov, a Russian mechanic’s apprentice, invented a steam engine which was completely independent of the use of water power culminating into one of the most remarkable designs which had the potential to accelerate the industrial revolution by leaps and bounds. The project was sent to Empress Catherine II. She awarded him 400 rubles but did not seem to appreciate the new technology, as she found the British design more reliable. A Scottish inventor, James watt started experimenting with steam, got a patent in 1769, and began commercial production in 1775. The Russian

A rebuttal to a daughter-in-law from a son and a husband

I scrolled through this piece on AkkarBakkar some 10 days back. I felt angry as to how the Internet, something that was supposed to give a life beyond saas bahu bitching, was falling prey to it. I wanted to rebut it then but I did not care much. Today though is a different day. I see my wife sharing this piece on her Facebook profile. This makes me rebut it because tomorrow my sister might share this considering its fashionable to share anything that victimizes feminity, even if the victimizer is another female. It becomes tremendously fashionable when the mother-in-law

Your brand is what your customers speak about when you leave the room. ~ Jeff Bezos of Amazon. Get closer than ever before to your customers. So close that you tell them what they need well before they even realise it. ~ Steve Jobs of Apple.

Corporate Junkie

Panasonic and Sony beeping in custom made Reid & Taylor pockets. A trade for a Rolex throned on his wrist in place of once existent dreams, in now hollow sockets. Adrenaline pumping before high stakes meetings and brunches. Calculating the dose of his choice of drug, penthouse suites and timeline crunches. Dizzy with ambition, painting cocaine bleached canvasses. Narcissistic laughter aimed to beguile others, he, for whom his relaxants are stresses.

Recessions, Inflations, cruel overdoses of risk, of danger unspoken. And when he surfaces
