Quora Question : Will Flipkart's acquisition of Jabong help it beat Amazon in the Indian market?

Quora Answer : As per Alexa Ranking Amazon is No. 5 website in India and Flipkart No. 9 This shows amazon india is ahead atleast in terms of traffic on website. But since now flipkart also owns Myntra (Alexa rank 56 in India) and newly owned Jabong (Alexa rank 38) the total traffic on Flipkart should be higher and revenue in Fashion segment as well i guess and believe. So the deadly three combination Flipkart + Myntra + Jabong might have already made it leader but Amazon is a very strong contender and only time will reveal what it has in its pocket.
Also there can always two three big players in the market in today’s date as monopoly is hard to achieve and infact there are many new market places joining competition everyday.

Memories with Yahoo

Once Yahoo Defined Internet. As if yahoo is internet and internet is yahoo. 
Yahoo is still one of my favourite website to check latest updates though relevant content related to national importance is getting less highlighted and its turning all about 15 rare pics, 11 habits, 10 foods and so on and celebrity gossips and less news in the slide banners . Also i visit yahoo to check if internet connectivity is there or not...!! And it's being sold out after several attempts to bring in profit is disappointing but i hope Verizon will take it to the new heights and it will not fade away.

When Internet was new to me and to the world Yahoo was the site i used most. It may be yahoo India page for reading news and updates or checking yahoo emails or the big one yahoo messenger. Yahoo messenger was such a craze at that time and i was not left out. In a world with no Facebook, Whatsapp - Yahoo Messenger rocked it. I had most of my friends on the yahoo messenger list and they are still today but no one is seen online and that includes me. I think i last used yahoo messenger over 2-3 years ago. I still receive a lot of emails on my yahoo id but they are only junks as like most of us i have shifted to Gmail but i still use yahoo id on some websites that i fear might spam me and i am ok if they do on my yahoo id.

I had made a lot of good friends on yahoo messenger that lived across the globe and all are almost lost and no more in contact apart from one or two whom i had added on Facebook. I used it for fun and sometimes even for my MBA entrance studies discussing global issues. 

Yahoo is still alive as a brand in the billions of people who are are of my generation (I am 28) and older. and it has good potential if utilized properly and can bring good revenues. Yahoo still have a huge database though that is getting less useful each day as most have shifted to gmail.

I wish Verizon puts a lot of efforts and makes revenues and the brand "Yahoo" does not fade away.

Best wishes.
Thanks

Suggestions for reducing air pollution in Delhi and other cities

Hi. This is Navneet Singh Chauhan. Below are my suggestions for reducing air pollution in Delhi and other  polluted cities.

Also I have a say on  "Odd - Even" formula that it can be a temporary solution to the problem but not a permanent one; Because if today Odd Even is accepted solution then in future another mathematical combination can be a solution like vehicle number ending with 1 to run on 1st, 2 to run on 2nd and 9 on 9th and 0 on 10th of month and 1 again on 11th and so on..! At the end such solutions will add more vehicles to the street as those who can own more vehicles will buy it. This will also promote corruption as people will buy the numbers from RTO to ensure that their new purchase is worth.

Possible steps to be taken to reduce pollution

1. We need to Focus more on "e" viz. eBikes, eCars, e-Rickshaws with government incentives.

We already have electric vehicles available in markets like Yobykes, Mahindra e2o cars and some more. Government is also offering some subsidies on Electric Vehicles. In city like Delhi we need to move a step ahead. We can offer incentives on buying these vehicles and government should come up with replacements or exchange offers on these vehicles. Like you get a good deal by exchanging your petrol / diesel car with an electric car or exchanging bike with an ebike. And these vehicles can be sold out outside Delhi area where pollution is not a major problem yet or government may scrap and recover money

2. More focus on development of Roads and Highways. We can Bypass trucks whose destination is not Delhi from alternate routes so they do not pollute delhi

3. More dedicated roots for buses and focus on Delhi Bus Rapid Transit System. We can run Double decker buses and provide comfort and faster journeys to passengers which will make people to keep their personal car home.

4. Focus on CNG cars, ensure CNG gas availability and distribution.

5. Strict Pollution Standards and ensuring the implementation is done and all vehicles on street have PUC certificates. Also BS-V (Bharat Stage-V) should be implemented asap.

6. More Focus and Development of Metro Railways,

7. Rope way communication to be developed where ever possible. 

8. Pollution by farmers needs to be controlled, Farmers must not be allowed to burn their crops. Also those burnt crops could be utilized instead of burning. Government can offer free cutting facility and carrying away service to farmers in return of the crops which are burned. This will give more employments as well. NREGA can be used for the same. 

9. Don't forget the basics - Grow More Trees. We can also have SFZ - special forest zone just like we have Special Economic Zones

10. water as fuel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE4KAwatzCU

11. Dedicated lanes for bicycle to ensure safety and promote travelling on bicycle.

Any suggestions from your side? please post in comments. thanks

Quote on Success and Pain

Success is more painful then Failure when you achieve it all alone. - Navneet Singh Chauhan

Hindi Poem - Yeh Duniya

Hindi Poem "Yeh Duniya"

Yeh reeti riwaj ki duniya. Yeh mitte sanskaro ki duniya.

Yeh bheed me tanhai ki duniya.

Yeh kagajo ki kastiyo ki duniya
Yeh jalte khwabo ki duniya.

Yeh bhaeti sheetal hawao ki duniya.
Yeh garm ret ke thapedo ki duniya.

Yeh jeet ke jashn ki duniya, yeh harti insaniyat ki duniya.
Yeh pyaar ki duniya, yeh tanhai ki duniya.
Yeh makano me ghar talasti duniya.
Yeh kalabazari ki duniya.

Yeh jism ki bhuki duniya, yeh aatma me parmatma talasti duniya.
Yeh bhook se tadapti duniya, yeh mehfil me rang badalti duniya.

Yeh peekar jhoomti duniya, yeh pani ko tarasti duniya.

Kisiki yaado me kat jati tanhai ki duniya.
Sath reh kar bhi ladti jagadti duniya.
Yeh khushi ki chikchariyo ki duniya... yeh aansuo se sani gamo ki duniya.

Yeh karwat badalti 'hansi aur gum' ki duniya. Har rang se rangi hai yeh berang duniya.

- Navneet Singh Chauhan.
