Moment you stop liking your job, it is time to move on

Making Toondoo appeal to children is the challenge, and the truest test of my product's creativity


Is there a place for traditional newspapers in a world that is increasingly going digital

Argument that there is no Internet penetration in India is a myth

Remembering my teacher

What I learnt today from a Twitter feed -- 50 things to keep in mind

The most valuable work lesson -- Don't promote yourself away from what you love

We look for the fire -- the passion to really perform and prove oneself - and the ability to learn

A thought from the book, 'Micromessaging'

Thin line between being obnoxious and being friendly -- the benefit of multicultural work environment

A tip for time management -- Priorities are like arms

Views about the young generation

Deep down everybody is good, and how comics are shifting from the traditional approach of absolute goodness and badness


Internet helps us go beyond labelling to tagging

A dream I'd like to chase later in life -- become a full-time mentor

Fostering innovation is an ongoing process of satisfying the creative hunger of people

Views about the economic downturn


Education really starts only when you have fun learning

Demo of Toondoo

Using images from a gallery of photographs in a cartoon

Work that has gone into Toondoo, to make it fun to use

Business model of Toondoo

Use of toons in books, newsletters, T-shirt printing

Best way to teach is not to seem that you are teaching, and that can be done through stories enriched by toons -- example of how a zebra got its stripes

There is no user manual on how to create a toon, and that is the test of ease-of-use

A full story book -- example of life at school

Toondoo cartoons used in publications -- an example from Young Minds


Flash is the technology back-end, and the final output is a JPG file, and we are considering going on the mobile platform

Toondoo-ers who are volunteering to work along with the shoestring team

Character-maker facility for help in portraying current affairs themes

Children authors who want to write a whole story with toons



What is the Toondoo style of comic-making

We have more than 3.5 lakh users, about 1000 new users come in everyday, and 2000-2500 cartoons are made daily

Expectations of users from Toondoo

AU -- the Adventnet University


College degree and the real world of work
