Thanks PL. Cool

Sfurti, I didn't cry at all. Since you have reminded me, here I cry : :(( ( NOT Happy tears Wink )

Aww Ranjith Cheer up.....I will send chocolates from my quota to youCool

Ranjith

Thanks Sfurti. Smile But the for-all-participants gift here is a pen drive and not chocolates. Innocent

@Renie Can we have chocolate hampers as gifts for a future contest? Smile

Sfurti Juztamom

Ranjith chocolates were sponsored by Rio the bossCool

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

The offer seems economical enough. Let's leave it for Renie to decide.

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

@ Sfurti I thought that it would be me who will give chocolates to IndiLexians. Innocent

@ Poonam Who said that chocolates would be economical. I am talking about a pack of Cadbury Silk chocolates and not Eclairs. Cool

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

Who said Eclairs are Choclates ?? Innocent :))

Anyways, with you looking for Silk as rewards, 'Renie ko yeh offer to bhari padega'. :))

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

I always thought that Eclairs are chocolates. Innocent

Which chocolates were you thinking of when you said the offer seems economical enough? Innocent

Poonam
from New Delhi

Cadbury Dairy Milk Hampers! :P

Ranjith

Ranjith
from hyderabad

Economics? :-/ I thought that it was about science seeing Newton's gravity and Edison's bulb. Innocent

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

Basically, it's about ideas - in any field. Or maybe Economics because it is by Franklin Templeton Investments:D

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

Thank God! I would have run away right now if it was about economics. Sealed

Vijay Prabhu
from Mumbai

@Ranjith Investments = economics

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

So are you trying to tell Ranjith to run away? :-/Innocent

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

I am an expert in manipulating topics to something that I can write about. So, no scope of me running away. :D

Poonam

We don't even want u to,Cool Forum Hero Cool 

Ranjith
from hyderabad

Don't want me to participate or Don't want me to run away? Innocent

Poonam
from New Delhi

Ofcourse, don't want u to run away...

Else, who will resolve forum queries R**** boy!

Just pulling your leg with the name! :D

Ranjith

Smile .

Thanks for using the stars in the name. Tongue out

Shantinath Chaudhary
from Hyderabad

Sorry to interrupt, but it has got nothing to do with "economics". Its all about "ideas" I guess. Just because it is sponsored by an investment firm, doesn't make it an economic contest. :)

Sfurti Juztamom
from Mumbai
6 years ago

As per my understanding...you have to watch the videos and take the concept forward.

Is that right???

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

That's bang on Sfurti!

Thanks Poonam. I am patting my back Wink

So, finally - there is no need for me to open an economics book. Wink

Yo Ranjith just use brains

Ranjith
from hyderabad

I would like to borrow a few brains. Foot in mouth

Multiple brains give better posts. Cool

Is anyone thinking about submitting 18 entries - one entry for each of the videos? Laughing

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

You can do that. No doubt, holidaying till July 15! Cool

TF Carthick
from Bangalore
6 years ago

I would like to. But with July 31 deadline, time is a serious constraint.

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

Yes, I have holidays till July 15 but I feel like writing only when the deadline is nearby. Undecided And just few days back, I thought - IndiContests are over. I can move onto to some productive work related to academics. :((

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

All effort in vain you poor boy!

Renie and IB come up every time to distract you from doing  some productive work related to academics.

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

@ TF Deadline is July 31st not June 31st ( or 30th ). You are left with 35 days! Cool

P.S. I first read the date as June 31st and wondered why the contest is closing so soon! Innocent

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

@Poonam I am a sincere student. Smile I always do some productive work related to academics. I have read two textbooks ( both half done ) for the next semester. Cool

TF Carthick
from Bangalore
6 years ago

But 18 posts in 35 days means 1 every 2 days and if I don't do just that, I have to write at least 7-8 others. Thats like 26 posts in 35 days - which will become a natitonal blog writing month.

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

Shabaash!! Achchi baat hai!

Keep up the good work with ur academics Ranjith! Cool

 

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

Thank you Poonam. Smile

@ TF All the best for national blog writing month. Wink

Nandini Deka
from Bombay

18 posts?? why?

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

@Nandini

There are 18 videos up for the contest.

So, one post for one video makes it 18 posts for 18 videos. Laughing

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

I thought that I was the only one who counted the number of videos. Sealed

Poonam
from New Delhi
6 years ago

It is not so boy!! Cool

I have already submitted one and thinking of submitting one by one up to 18 if time and idea permits. First entry may get a first prize?

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

You mean prize for those who submit their entry before anyone else? Innocent

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

@ Shetty I was also thinking of writing an entry like yours which talks about all the 18 videos apart for one entry each for the 18 videos. Sealed

And glad that you have watched all the videos. I am struck on the first video itself! Undecided

TF Carthick
TF Carthick

This looks interesting - A contest where the content is more interesting than the prizes. Maybe I will participate this time after all. 

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

All the best TF! I am sure you would come up with something interesting like that dilemma at a saloon!Smile  And you are more likely to win something as the sponsor is not Dove, Sunsilk,... Wink

TF Carthick
from Bangalore
6 years ago

Thanks Ranjith - More the prizes I like this concept pf videos with ideas. I have know about ted all allong but too lazy to see them regularly. 

Yo dude,  viewed one video of wello water concept.  Real mind opener indeed. Great to see you back with us in. Looking forward to your post.

Anyone creating a video revolving around their own idea? Laughing

.

I know that the contest says 'Pick one of those videos...' but still, we are always free to break rules. Wink

Yo Ranjith, good idea. Three cheers for this idea itself.Wink

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

Thanks. Smile

 

Ranjith, First entry to gain sympathy of judges for having watched all the 18 presentations on first day itself and comment on it. Now time is there till July 31 to comment my thoughts on each video seperately one by one. At least some consolation prize. I need to win iPhone 5

 

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

If I am a judge, you would have definitely gained my sympathy. Smile

All the best for consolation prize as well as iPhone Laughing

Guys. how about a Vlog as an entry for this contest where the resource material is videos on Youtube? It would be a new way. Will be easier to make 18 videos rather than 18 written blog posts. May take less time. Sponsor will get our fresh perspective on their back-logged videos face to face etc.

Less chance of plagiarism as it won't be easy to copy paste these. 

What do you think?

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

Will be easier to make 18 videos rather than 18 written blog posts. 

Really? Surprised

Madhu Bhardwaj
from NOIDA
6 years ago

Won't it? Look into the camera and say what you want. And all done. :)

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

So, a raw video?

I was talking about a well edited video. Wink By the way, I never took a video of me talking something... 

Madhu Bhardwaj
from NOIDA
6 years ago

The project talks about Newton and Edison, their ideas were revolutionary. So letting Vlogs be the entry for this contest would be a small step in the same general direction. It is definitely new. No?

You could work out the nitty gritty. Ranjith, there is a first time for everything. Remember you posted your photo for the first time in Arti's contest and won.

The Nameless One
from Mumbai
6 years ago

That's in fact a brilliant idea and Ranjith, it's fairly easy. I was in fact thinking about the same (though not 18 videos lol)

Will be interesting to see entries for this!

Madhu Bhardwaj
from NOIDA
6 years ago

And TED could use a collage of the entry videos at one of its TED talks. Voices from the world about the ideas first talked about in their forum.

I am bit confused about what should be blog post content? Do we need to write aboout the idea they have presented?

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

As the page says :

Share your thoughts on the big issue they’re talking about.

Talk about the video, what the person spoke and give your own opinion on the topic they spoke about.

.

Or, write whatever you want. The judges should find your entry appealing if you want to win. Wink

hey I have doubt, do we have to blog seperately for each video or can we combine them and give link to all videos in our blog post

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

According to what the page says, you should choose one video and blog about it. 

Each blog entry must include a link to the specific Youtube video that’s being written about. 

You can submit just one entry dealing with one video or submit 18 entries for the 18 videos or choose some number between one and 18.

But if you want, you can also write a single post covering all the videos. It is up to you. Smile

Hi. I had submitted an article for the idea caravan.

Poonam

Sohni, link posting on the forum is not allowed. Be careful otherwise IndiPolice may object.

When you go to the contest page here it says 

Entries under "The Idea Caravan" are presently hidden.

And since the contest closes on 31 July, all entries will be visible only after that. So waiting would be the best option as of now... Laughing

Thanks for informing it now itself, otherwise I would have watched all the videos simultaneously, one on each monitor on the last date. Tongue out
