99 Percent Animal , One Percent Human

The following is one of the quotes that really touched me. If people understand the following statement, 99% of their problems could be solved. “The average person, in my estimation, is ninety-nine per cent animal and one per cent human. The ninety-nine per cent that is animal causes very little trouble. But the one per cent that is human causes all our woes. When people learn — as I doubt they will — that they can’t get something for nothing,…

Offline Business

People will spend money on something that will make them more money. Those are the wise words of Glen Alsop and it makes sense. I would be much more comfortable spending my 5$ on something that promises me to give a return of  20$. The term spending transforms to investment and investing is a good thing.  Back in my country of residence, people are realizing the importance and potential of internet slowly. They do pay the designer and make a…

Engineer !

The most awaited day my life is finally here. I’ve made it successfully through Aeronautical Engineering. Yes, I actually studied rocket science. I didn’t fail any of the courses or receive any academic warnings ( Had to boast about that 😛 ) through the 4 years of hell. Its kind of funny that I’ll not be pursuing a career in this field even after spending so much money, time and effort on the tuition. I have encountered a lot of…

E-Commerce Company from the Inside

While surfing the net I came across gradberry.  It is a portal which lists internship and entry level jobs for graduates and students.  I went through the listings and found internship openings at a company called ‘Rocket Internet’.  The job listing was kind of vague but it had something to do with sites.  I was always curious what people were doing in my country on the internet on a company level to make money. Before I could apply, I needed…
