Hi Friends,
                                              Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
                                                  There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"
                                       With regards,
                                       Hemen Parekh

First rule, attaining success to be different.

"Effective strategy is all about differentiation,"

brands needed to create a real reason to buy and not a meaningless slogan.

to ensure differentiation by attributes, which was the only characteristic that would make products unique.

How each of them were able to stand for attributes the ultimate driving experience, safety, engineering and styling.

Consumers want to believe that products can contain a magic ingredient that will improve performance.

Where most consumers did not bother to know what Trinitron was all about.

Do not ignore the competition, focus and differentiation are critical in competitive world and CEOs must be willing to encourage sacrifice instead of growth. 


BMW              = Ultimate Driving Experience
Volvo              = Safety
Mercedes         = Engineering
Jaguar            = styling


Guru Mine        =
Guru search     = Short listing competence not resumes?

Exact information you want individualized custom services
"Communication network would be tailor made to suit the needs of each individual"
Active web sites and with software agents to extract desired information via text, voice, images and video. You'll no more be fed with information that you may find irrelevant. The software will keep place too and extract exactly what you want.
Services that will enable us to interact as naturally as we do with our friends,
"High level mediator".
Network will enable you to do all the work you could have done in your office.
Challenge for service providers
Customise the data application.
And analyse whether they want to operate in this area or whether returns would be higher from other sector.
With couple band width at zero cost, valuable "content" would be in great demand. As long as we can create content, we would not have to worry about “Delivery Channel’s & Delivery Devices".
