Dalgona Coffee, Anyone?

Dalgona coffee videos have been making rounds for quite some time now. Everyone coming up with their own version of this two layered coffee. One "Real Man" laughed at all  these sissies making coffee and came up with a rudimentary layering of whisky on water.
Well here's something even better for the "Lazy MAN" (or for that matter Lazy Lady - I don't believe in gender bias). Just carefully pour yourself a shot glass full of Sheridan.
It should look something like this:
You may also call it the Inverted Dalgona. Tastes just as good if not better.

Just for your info: Sheridan is a just another Irish Coffee "taste-a-like". But it is uniquely packaged as a separate dark coffee-Irish whisky mixture and a white cream based liqueur in a single bottle with two compartments with two separate openings. It is produced by Thomas Sheridan and Sons Distillery which is owned by the Gilbey's group which also produces Bailey's Irish Cream.

Facebook + Reliance Jio = ?

Facebook will be investing $5.7 bn (approx INR 43K crore) in Reliance Jio in a bid to scale up it's presence in India. Reliance on the other hand will be able to reduce its net debt.

So besides this, what could be the impact of this Facebook-Jio team

Jio Money-Whatsapp Pay combination:
Facebook and Jio can leverage each other's user bases which can give both these under utilised payment platforms a push to be more formidable players in the payment space. May be so much that they could give the Paytms and Google Pays of the world a run for their money.

Jio Mart on WhatsApp:
Reliance has also announced its online ecommerce platform - JioMart. WhatsApp can be utilised well as a means of receiving orders as well as giving updates. With payment possibilities on WhatsApp itself, the entire lifecyle of buying can be covered in one app. With Reliance in the background sourcing goods in manners similar to what it used for Reliance Digital, Reliance Fresh and other of its ventures, this combo can be a superhit even in remote areas of India where the most common mode of social interaction is WhatsApp.

With Instagram and Facebook for promotion of all of these services, the sky is the limit for these new partners.

There are limitless possibilities which can be concocted with an idle mind. What will be achieved - only time will tell.

The New Age Great Compression

Just putting down a few thoughts on the after-effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Well sure the pandemic is far from over and experts are claiming that there might be a resurgence of infections once the summer gets over in the Northern Hemisphere, but I just wanted to take look at what would be the impact of this pandemic on the global economy.

Is it going to be a recession. Well, yes in a way there will be a recession. Due to all the various lockdowns across the world, most businesses are forced to shut shop. Other than basic necessities, everything else is either not available or not in demand. So all in all demand is low and supply even lower - economic downturn.

But what do you think will happen once the the pandemic starts to lose its grip on the human race. Suddenly people will be free to leave their homes. They will want to go back to their jobs. Business owners will be free to open up. All that pent up demand will start to show, and they will gladly take the people who want job…

What's on TV

Just the other day, I was channel surfing and happened to run through the kids' section. I mean seriously, I did run through. Having grown up on some wonderful stuff like Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, DuckTales, TaleSpin and what not, I did not really find anything even remotely appealing in what's on TV these days.

Its the same thing on all channels, pathetic animation and even more pathetic stories, some overly gross anime with snog bubbles coming out of every sleeping person's nose and the likes. I am like, GOD!! - who watches this stuff.

Well that's all a matter of perspective. Those cartoons wouldn't be on air if everyone was disliking them. But for me it's YUCK.

What do you think?

N for???

Was thinking of what should N in N-Zine stand for

Should I call it
N-tertainment?? or may be
Non Fiction orrrr
No Nonsense Or may be just
Nonsense 
 But I think I shall just stick to

Nothing in Particular I think I'll just be a generalist and not specialise in anything.
