Barbie Weds Superman – Wedding of the Century !


wealthymattersLast night I heard confirmation that  Team 2 (consisting of myself and fellow IndiBloggers Akshay Iyer, Leena Singbal, Vanessa Rowe, Subham Singh, Bikash Bhandary, Prashant Kharkhera, Aditi Pathak, Mohit Chabria, Chirag  ) had been judged a winner of the Ad Mad Event at ‪#‎Flipkartkids‬ for our improv perfomance: “Barbie Weds Superman – Wedding of the Century !”.

And the judge was no less than Ace Adman O&Ms Piyush Pandey!(intelligence as per the person shooting the official video.)

Yay !

I played Masoom 05151 and anchored the show we put up. And ‘Barbie Weds Superman – Wedding of the Century !’, is probably how I will always best recall last Saturday’s ‪#‎Flipkartkids event.

Hopefully I can track down photos or even the official video of our performance. IndiBlogger founders and crew can you help?

I initially attended this event to launch Flipkart Li’l Stars – India’s Biggest Online Kids Store, to get some insight into how I could invest in the “Toy Story”. After all we are now an increasingly young nation with a lot of children and parents who are more aware than ever before of toy trends world-over. Moreover we now have greater means to indulge our children. So there must be money to be made in the situation. And I had heard that people from Disney, Mattel and Chhota Bheem were to attend the event. Read more of this post

The Agarwals


Mythologically, the Agarwals trace their origin to Agroha, a small town in Haryana,in North India and regard King Agrasena as their progenitor. A Bania subcaste, the Agarwals are made up of 18 clans, among them the Gargs, Goyals, Bansals, Mittals, Singhals and Jindals. As traders and entrepreneurs,in India, the Agarwal community,like the Chettiars of Tamil Nadu and the Moplahs of Kerala, have no mean reputation  — the community is prosperous and has proven its mercantile mettle over the centuries. Businessmen from Agarwal clans are among the wealthiest in India and include the Bharti Group’s Sunil Bharti Mittal, Vedanta Resources’ Anil Aggarwal, Naresh Goyal of Jet Airways and ArcelorMittal’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer LN Mittal.

And last year, for every $100 in funding for e-commerce companies, $40 went to firms founded by an Agarwal.  Read more of this post
