Roko mat Toko mat

Bachpan se bada koi school nahi, curiosity se badi koi teacher nahi.
There is no greater school than childhood and no greater teacher than curiosity.

Parle G(the largest selling brand of biscuits in the world) asks parents to encourage their child's curiosity and creativity in its campaign called 'Kal ke genius'. While the song has an '80s feel, it is the soul of the film and is written, sung and composed very well. The song aptly encapsulates the philosophy of the campaign. It is urging people to let their kids be just kids and let them explore if they are curious.


Parle-G's Glucose biscuits always evoke a sense of nostalgia. The ad in a nice way talks about the increasing parental control and societal pressures that make kids these days spend more time in study classes than learning through exploring new things. Curiosity is actually the best teacher. Unfortunately, it is just the kind of a thing which parents often discourage. In fact, we keep stopping children from doing lots of things that they should be doing. We should be actually urging children to explore their curiosity, view things from different perspectives, which in turn might help them become future geniuses.


I have always believed that exploring your own creativity and learning through mistakes is a critical aspect of being extra-ordinary. So if you have kids - Let them be on their own and let their imagination run free. Here's the ad:




Kudos to the entire creative team behind the advert.

Lyrics: Gulzaar

Roko mat... toko mat. (4)

Sochne do inhe sochne do inhe sochne do
Roko mat, toko mat 
Sochne do inhe sochne do inhe sochne do 
Hoye toko mat inhe sochne do mushqilon ke hal khojne do
Roko mat, toko mat(2)
Nikalne to do aasmaan se judenge
Nikalne to do aasmaan se judenge
Arrr... 
Andey ke andar hi kaise udenge yaar
Roko mat, toko mat
Nikalne do paanv...
Juraabe bahut hain
Kitabon ke baahar kitaabein bahut hain

Bachpan se bada koi school nahi

Curiosity se badi koi teacher nahi
Parle-G aao banaaye kal ke Genius

I'm Deepak Ravlani, and This Is How I Work

Like so many heroes of the startup world, I started early after college. Now, with years of experience in Technology behind me, it has become a lot easier to polish my workflow and get lots of stuff done. Let's talk about my workspace setup, go-to apps, best life hacks, favorite gadgets and tunes. In my free time, I work on a few side projects, including Blogging and managing several communities over Google+. Since launching in Dec 2012, +Project Glass community has become one of the fastest growing community. With  more than 2500(and counting) users and a thriving community of Glass fans, needless to say, the past few months have been crazy for me. Last time I went through this, it was 2008. I was using different apps, but did have sort of productivity system that really helped me get things done. In last few years, I've picked up a few tips and tricks along the way and I've been making some small changes here and there as I get more comfortable with my flow, So this time…

The potential for RSS is significantly larger then you can think of:

Many of us have come to realize how useful RSS is when it comes to tracking news headlines or your favorite blogs. It’s a great way to keep up without having to visit many websites. What most people don’t know is that RSS is an incredibly flexible technology that can do all sorts of other things. The following list is a collection of 25 alternative uses for RSS. We hope you’ll find some of them useful. Track Specific News Headlines: You can keep track of news on particular topics by subscribing to specific news search results. Here’s a constantly updated news search on the Seattle Seahawks via Google. Here’s another by Yahoo! that tracks the headlines coming in on the U.S. Supreme Court. To subscribe, just do your search and find the RSS feed link. New Homes: realtors can provide updated feeds of new home listings on the market. Find Shopping Deals: Another cool use of RSS is the ability to get entries when a shopping deal or coupon comes along. Slickdeals (feed), Ben’s Bargains (feed) an…

How can I Make my Offline Life Easier?

Most of us are already hip-deep in online efficiency tools like shared calendars, code libraries, and rss feeds; here are 30 simple ways that you can make your life (the real one) easier: At HomeSynchronize recurring events. This can be done annually, monthly, or even weekly. As an example, there are many household tasks that really only need to be done annually. Make it easy to remember when they need to be done by doing them all on the same day. The switch to daylight savings time is a good time to check batteries in smoke detectors, clean screens and windows, change air filters, clean fireplaces, etc. You can do the same with your car, by checking your tires, wiper fluid, battery, etc., every time you get an oil change. Sacrificing one day a month to do household chores like laundry, cleaning, and gardening can relieve the burden of having those things hang over your head and follow you around during the rest of the month. Scatter lots of cheap pens and pencils. Distribute them all…

Make Dad a Superhero on Father’s Day

Celebrate dad and make the most of Father’s Day with a little help from your Google Assistant. Dads are awesome. They teach you how to ride your first bike, sneak you the last cookie when no one’s looking, they make sure there are no monsters under your bed, helping us reel in the ‘huge’ fish, catching us when we stumbled, reading the same book 325 times, and being there for us no matter what. Dads are pretty awesome. Often the unsung heroes of couch-fort building, light bulb replacing, family movie nights, impromptu dance parties and fixing broken things, Dad doesn’t even get to wear a cape.

I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom. Isn’t it time we celebrate dads? What can I say? Dads make the world go round. This Sunday is Father’s Day — a day to surprise and spoil our favorite dads. With a little help from your Google Assistant, you can plan the perfect day, share s…
