The ‘Goldilocks’ budget for growth

This Article First Appeared In Forbesindia On Feb 1, 2023 It is not uncommon for corporates to sugar coat their angst over disappointing Budget announcements. When corporates hail the finance minister for delivering a ‘super’ Budget, one takes it with a pinch of salt, as the tone isn’t hard to miss. But Budget 2023 is different. The mood is clearly upbeat. Nilesh Shah, managing director, Kotak Mahindra AMC, says the Budget numbers are realistic, conservative and credible. “This Budget is a Baahubali budget. With one arrow, multiple targets are shot. Fiscal prudence is achieved with lower deficit and the path is set till FY26. Consumption is supported through tax cuts and the investment outlay has been enhanced,” he adds.

Next big thing in India’s influencer marketing universe—IIM classes, LinkedIn to ShareChat

This Article First Appeared In The Print On Jan 29, 2023 Agroup of people huddle inside a small studio to brainstorm content strategy for their influencer clients. They comb through endless Reels, YouTube videos and occasionally ‘lol’. But this is serious business at IPLIX, even though the office looks like a college lounge. Crores of rupees are at stake here. This is one of India’s top influencer spotting and marketing agencies. Creators like Shlok Srivastava, better known as Tech Burner, Thugesh or Mahesh Keshwala, Ritvi Shah, and Saloni Gaur turn to IPLIX to get lucrative deals and be at the top of their game. The space once occupied by model/talent agencies in the 2000s is now occupied by influencer marketing agencies. Barter or paid, everyone now wants to be a creator or collaborator. The returns are high and the work is not the ‘boring’ 9 to 5. Everyone wants a slice of the influencing pizza. But it is ultimately these agencies that are making the biggest buck.

Has the world dodged recession? Reasons for hope, caution

This Article First Appeared In Indian Express On Jan 27, 2023

There is a growing sense that a global recession may not happen, and that some of the biggest economies, such as the US and the Euro-zone countries, may achieve a soft-landing.

Last year was terrible for the global economy. By the time 2022 came to a close, observers across the world believed that several key economies would witness a recession in 2023.

But by the time the most influential policymakers, CEOs and economists met at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos earlier this month, the mood had started to shift. There is a growing sense that a global recession may not happen, and that some of the biggest economies, such as the US and the Euro-zone countries, may achieve a soft-landing.

We Asked ChatGPT To Write Republic Day 2023 Speeches As Gandhi, Ambedkar & Nehru

We Asked ChatGPT To Write Republic Day 2023 Speeches As Gandhi, Ambedkar & Nehru

This Article First Appeared In The Quint On Jan 26, 2023 American writer Dale Carnegie, who literally wrote the book on public speaking, once said: "There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave." But in 2023, there's possibly a fourth type – the speech that's been penned by an AI chatbot, specifically ChatGPT. Since its launch in November last year, ChatGPT has managed to dazzle some while disappointing others. The tasks that it can carry out are sophisticated in nature. At the same time, the AI tool is not without blindspots. However, with India celebrating its 74th Republic Day, we had a unique proposition for ChatGPT: How would Mahatma Gandhi, Dr BR Ambedkar, and other key figures who shaped the country address Indians on 26 January 2023? These are the AI-generated responses we got. For the record, ChatGPT's responses were accompanied with a disclaimer that stated "It's important to remember that this is a fictional speech that I have created based on ______'s principles and beliefs, it does not represent any real speech or view of ______."
