Posted by Rahul Bharadwaj | Posted in Introduction | Posted on 29-08-2009

I have been answering this question almost everyday and hence, to make it easy, I thought I would blog it down.

From where did the term “FOURDY” evolved from?

FOURDY, as most of you might know, is not a dictionary term. So when and from where and did it come?

Time Management — Create an Extra Hour a day

Posted by Chetan Bharadwaj | Posted in Management | Posted on 25-08-2009

Time ManagementAre you forever racing against time to meet deadlines? Does your most common refrain happen to be “so much to do and so little time”? If you have answered in affirmative to both the questions, there are also chances that you just can’t get through that to-do list stuck neatly to your workplace or set on your mobile phone. The unfinished tasks that you are not able to complete from a long time are overwhelming you and are also jeopardizing your career :(. Time is your most precious resource today, because it is limited. So, Time management is what I suggest.

How to get the most out of your time?

From my last month’s experience I will recommend you to leverage and audit your time. NO, it definitely doesn’t mean spending more time to manage time!

Posted by Chetan Bharadwaj | Posted in Festival/Events, Review | Posted on 23-08-2009

Lord Ganesha
Lord Ganesha

Ganesh Chaturti (or Ganapati), is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Ganesha who is popularly known for his wisdom, power and auspiciousness in Hinduism.  On such an occasion, big idols of the elephant-faced Hindu God is decorated and worshiped. The festival is celebrated all over the country, but more enthusiastically amongst the Marathi Indians. They celebrate the festival continuously for 10 days making it the biggest, most opulent & a highly popular festival of the state Maharashtra. The festival ends on Ananta Chaturdasi Day (this year suppose to be September 2, 2009) when people in a huge procession carry the idols of Lord Ganesha and immerse it into the nearest water source invoking for his blessings.

This year’s Ganesh Chaturti date is August 23, 2009 (Yes, the Ganeshotsav celebration has already commenced and people are out of their home since early morning to pick up Ganapati idols :)). And as you would join in the celebration, you will observe 2 major themes depicted through paintings, decorations, mannequins and tableaux across the pandals – 26/11 terrorist attack and swine flu.

Ever since the time in memorial I used to wonder that what could be the key points to a business making an unremitting success all the way its existence? Little did I know or had I ever realized that any economic process, not necessarily only significant to money making, had to have some checkpoints before they actually become ‘successful’.

Keepin’ it real fake: Deceptive Marketing in India

Posted by Soham Pal | Posted in Media, Review | Posted on 13-08-2009

We’ve all made fun of those iPhone clones infesting the market. However I’ve seen only a few people appalled by the deceptive marketing bonanza that this device has caused in the subcontinent. If calling it the E-Phone weren’t enough, they decide to go an extra mile by blatantly reusing an official image of the aforementioned device.

What’s surprising is the fact that the press seems to have completely waived off it’s responsibility in publishing such an advertisement. The fact that an advertisement like this has actually made itself to the print edition of such a premiere newspaper explains why we need more attention towards monitoring of advertisements in the country. Surely, such an advertisement would be laughable if it ended up on the frontpage of the New York Times, perhaps followed immediately by a lawsuit. Why should things be different in India?

As requested by someone, here’s what the advertisement reads:

Become an Author at Fourdy Wlog!

Posted by Shikha Kedia | Posted in Introduction | Posted on 13-08-2009

History

Fourdy Wlog was started recently when Rahul, Khushboo, Chetan and I decided to blog at a common place (Rahul even went to the extent of deleting his existing blog at blogspot). We were surprised at the response we got from friends; many of them wanted an author access to the blog. The quick popularity of the blog made us realize the power of synergy.

The Idea

We are inviting authors to blog at FOURDY WLOG because of 3 reasons:

  1. So that FOURDY WLOG becomes one place to look out for information on any topic.
  2. To directly market author’s blog on FOURDY WLOG as we allow authors to mention few extracts from the post and like it to their own (it is not mandatory for the authors to link FOURDY WLOG on their blog/website)
  3. Link to Author’s website/blog.

Who can join

There is NO restriction on the basis of age, education, location or experience. You do not even need to have your own blog (really).  All we expect from the author is to maintain the code of conduct by keeping the post strickly non obscene and away from controvertial topics. We would like each author to take up few categories of their choice and post in those topics itself. As the association is absolutely informal, there are no set rules but more of mutual understanding.

How can you join

You can join simply by writing an email at wlog [at] thefourdy.com, mentioning the topics/categories you are interested to blog for and we would get back to you with the registration link.

Wishing everyone the very best, happy wlogging!

FOURDY Wlog - Winning Best Elevator Pitch Award
FOURDY Wlog! – Winning Best Elevator Pitch Award @ Kolkata Blogger’s Meet 2009

I have no clue from where to start it off and how to wind it up. But for present, I’m more concerned in explaining the exhilarating experience that me and my companions: Rahul Bharadwaj, Khushboo Nangalia, Shikha Kedia, Anurag Ahuja and Yogesh Goel (better identified by the populace at the meet as ygoel.com) had at the Kolkata Blogger’s Meet 2009 on 8th August, 2009 at Café Coffee Day, Salt Lake (Sector V), Near Adlabs Cinemas, Kolkata.

I couldn’t perceive how 5 hours flew like few minutes, and the programme was over. I only did when the Prize Distribution (which was supposed to be the last on the agenda) commenced and FOURDY Wlog (led by my brother Rahul) won the ‘Best Elevator Pitch Award’.

Kyakare   Logo

It has been about a year that I have been administering the content on kyakare.com. The whole work started as a “variation” of Content Writing (which I was into during that time). During the initial stages I teamed up with one other member of FOURDY SOLUTIONS, but lately I have been doing it by myself under the guidance of Baselal Killekar, Chief Editor at Kyakare.com. The project was routed by my brother, Rahul Bharadwaj as an extension of the development services that he provided to kyakare.
