Marketing is dynamic. Digital Marketing is even more dynamic. Algorithms keep changing and Marketers need to keep abreast with the developments. If you have authored a text book on Digital Marketing in 2018, you need to publish an updated edition in 2020. This is exactly what Prof.Seema Gupta did with her book titled Digital Marketing | Second Edition published by Mc Graw Hill. I have been following Seema Gupta, Associate Professor at Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, for the last two years. I have studied her first edition and now, I have the pleasure of buying her second edition from Amazon.
Digital Marketing | Second Edition by Seema Gupta is a must for both practitioners as well as beginners. The new paperback, with cover design suggesting connected globalized world, carries 126 additional pages, all coloured on glossy paper. There are four new chapters namely Digital Analytics, Video Marketing, Online Reputation Management and Technological Advancements in Digital Marketing. Digital Analytics replaces the chapter Web Analytics, as in the first edition, and includes Affiliate Marketing. Video Marketing tells us how it can be leveraged by using different social media platforms including YouTube which was covered earlier in Display Advertising. The last two chapters, Chapter 13 is Online Reputation Management and Chapter 14 is Technological Advancements in Digital Marketing. These two chapters are web chapters which you have to get from McGraw Hill online learning centre on Connect. If you have difficulties in getting these two web chapters, please get in touch with me
Durga Puja is an annual religious and cultural event where a Bengali takes up a role close to his or her heart. My mother used to cook the ‘bhog’ the community lunch, I used to take the stage to act in plays and everyone has a role in organizing the community event in our respective villages, towns or cities. Former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee loved to take the garb of a priest in his village Durga Puja at his ancestral home in Miriti, Birbhum District , West Bengal, even when he was the Rashtrapati. While the Nation bids adieu to Bharat Ratna , Statesman and Political Leader Pranab Mukherjee, people in Miriti will miss his ‘Sondhi Pujo’ during Durga Puja.
This must have been in the late 90s that I had met the first woman cardiologist of India Dr. Padmavati Sivaramakrishna Iyer. I remember that the Padma Vibhushan awardee had shared with me that she was born in Rangoon (then in Burma now called Myanmar) and had studied her MBBS there, before she went to London for FRCP and then to Johns Hopkins and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Padmavati was Director of National Heart Institute, Delhi and Founder President of All India Heart Foundation. She was the oldest working Cardiologist till she succumbed to Covid-19 on Saturday night at the age of 103. Amazing lady she was. Rest in peace.

Today, 19August, is World Photography Day. As an amateur photographer, I have the pleasure of sharing my favourite photograph, a moment that I captured in Naivasha, Kenya. This majestic lion had climbed a tree but was not coming down. Was it scared of climbing down? Why was it salivating? I had to leave the place without getting the answers. What do you think? #worldphotographyday
We always wait to see Red turning to Green
Be it the traffic signal or containment zone,
But one exception to this is at the kitchen garden
Where we have waited for the Green to ripen to Red.
