Quick notes: Startup mortalities, Shifting pollution...

  • Start-up mortalities: India's struggling startups.


  • Start-ups lean on temporary jobs to sail through tough times: Rather than hiring people and firing them after six months, it is better to hire with transparency that people will only be associated for a particular duration.


  • High Frequency Trading: India is having its own 'Flash Boys' moment. 40% of all stock trading volume on NSE coming from high frequency and algorithmic transactions.


  • Sea of automobiles: Can Delhi's pollution be shifted to cleaner places?


  • E-bikes: Battery technology driving e-bike boom


  • Elby e-bike: Sweat-free biking


  • Smartphone addiction: How technology hijacks our psychological vulnerabilities.


  • Forgetting real heroes, celebrating filmi ones: Few remember the sacrifices of our soldiers


  • Ding-Namaskara:

Hold your applause. Find what is a TAQIA. It is permitted to lie and deceive in the interest of islam. Khizrs cannot be fully trusted.
