Personally, my favorite questions are those which have me wide-eyed and wondering –Seriously? – when the answer gets revealed. Two that come to my mind:

1. What will be offered by Kashi Vishwanath temple in association with Shri Prakash Raghuvanshi?

This was asked by Pickbrain at Tata Corporate Crucible, Gurgaon in Sept 12. Now I have spent the last 4 years in Banaras (location of the temple) and I honestly thought this question lame (I mean could be any offering- clothes, jewellery, left-over temple flowers, exotic sweets). Until the answer was announced:

Ans: PACKAGED MANURE (1)

2. X has had over 43 pets including 21 dogs, 12 horses, 3 ponies, 6 cats, a parrot, a chimpanzee, a panda, a lion cub, a giraffe and a zebra.
AND… 80 careers everything from a rock star to a paleontologist to a presidential candidate.

Question asked in a school quiz in Dubai several years ago. The guesses ranged from Arnold Schwarzenegger, some Arab Sheikh, Elvis Presley. One team actually came very close to the actual answer with Sarah Palin! (2) Of course, the answer was:

Hard to pick one, but here are some of my favourites:

1. In 1928, AT T s Western Electric established a division for the specific purpose of installing and servicing their loudspeakers and electronic products for motion picture use. Called E.R.P.I. (Electrical Research Products, Inc.), it was purchased as part of a consent decree in 1936 by a group of E.R.P.I. executives, including George Carrington, Sr. and Mike Conrow. They changed the name to All Technical Service Company .
How do we know this company today?

Ans. Altec ( All Tech ) Lansing.

2. A person with ___________ is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.
What modern-day product takes its name from the above mentioned philosophy mostly because it is based on the same principle?

3. Started in 1945 by two friends Burt X and Irv Y. with the merging of their respective individual shops, XY has since become one of the leading companies that sell Z. It is distinctly recognized by its logo which contains a number – signifying the number of varieties of the product it sells.

Its new logo, revealed in 2005, is hailed by many as one of the most innovative logos of all time for its clever inclusion of the above mentioned number into it.

Ans: Baskin-Robbins (X-Y) and if you don t know what they sell, I suggest you go out more often.

A few questions which I really liked.

1.After India became independent in 1947, the Planning Commission was entrusted to oversee and direct the development of the nation. India grew rapidly in the 1950s, and in the late 1950s the Commission started facing difficulties in finding suitable people for the large number of enterprises that were being established in India as a part of its industrial policy. To solve this problem, the Planning Commission in 1959 invited Professor George Robbins of the University of California. What resulted?

2. The name of this website stems from a Hindi phrase used on anyone who attempts to achieve the impossible. Started by Wharton graduate Allwin Agnel in 2003, its mascot is named ‘Monsieur Green’. Which website?

3. The following table gives the exchange rates of a certain currency in three different denominations. Identify what has been blanked out.

6. Shown below is a character from an unique language which caused an outrage from a certain group when it was dropped from Wikipedia’s official logo in 2010.Which Language?

7. This is Hannah Steller photographed by her older brother, Dustin Steller. The photo was originally uploaded to iStockphoto in August 2005 as a result of which, it made her immensely popular all over the world.
How/what is she known as?

8. It was discovered that defects in the sphere from knicks and scrapes of normal use, could provide it with a truer flight than a pure sphere. Thus,makers started creating intentional defects in the surface by hammering to give it an evenly dimpled shape which would cause it to have a more consistent flight. Funda behind what?

9.This is a letter sent to ‘Lady Gaga’ by the firm she had previously threatened to sue for a certain product. What was the product and the controversy?

Further to our letter of 9th March, we note that we have not heard back from you or from your client Lady Gaga despite your demands that we respond to your letter by 4.00pm on 9thMarch.

In fact you have not even confirmed receipt of the letter which was emailed and delivered to you by hand.

As you will have noted from the contents of that letter, the product your client described as ‘nausea-inducing’ and ‘possibly unfit for human consumption’ was given a clean bill by the authorities last week.

We are therefore seeking your permission to re-launch our ______ in a way which will not offend, upset or distress your client in any way. As such we are holding a ‘Name the Baby’ competition and asking for the approval of one of the following names.

The wisdom you ve accumulated, somehow it just lives on.” He further added that he implemented this philosophy in his products. What feature or rather minimalism was implemented in Apple products because of this?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who held wide-ranging talks with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc, said the two countries have decided to elevate their strategic ties to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership to provide it a new momentum.

Healthcare is undeniably India s largest sector nowadays in terms of both revenue and employment. Healthcare as a whole comprise hospitals, medical devices / equipments, outsourcing, medical tourism and health insurance.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India, a multinational professional service company has estimated that the overall Indian healthcare market today is worth US$ 100 billion and will likely to grow at a CAGR of 23 per cent to US$ 280 billion by 2020.

The Indian medical tourism industry is pegged at US$ 3 billion per annum, with an estimated 230,000 medical tourists arriving in the country. This is expected to double sharply in the next four years to US$ 6 billion.

The healthcare segment has attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 3.41 billion between April 2000 and December 2015, according to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

With this sharp increase, India requires 600,000 to 700,000 additional beds over the next five to six years, indicative of an investment opportunity of US$ 25-30 billion. Given this demand for capital, the number of transactions in the healthcare space is expected to witness a sharp increase in the near future. Increase in number of transactions means a healthy rise in Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) provided the RCM company adapts a holistic approach to the process and provide a complete solution. Those firms that follow this practice will be in a position to grab larger share of market in the future.

Other than this, the outsourced market in the healthcare segment is estimated to be around US$ 8 billion, a majority of which is in the US, followed by India. In a flourishing trend, most of the US Healthcare providers are outsourcing their non-core processes like RCM to third-party service providers in other English speaking countries, where India is choosen as a favourabe destination.

The competitive advantage that India has is her large pool of English speaking, talented, well trained professionals with good analytical skills which is essential for BPO indusry, not to mention the cost competitiveness compared to other English speaking countries. The matured medical education system in the country is also widely appreciated abroad.

Eventhough, apprehensions existed few years back about India s ability to handle complex US healthcare process, now they have been removed, as the RCM players have invested wisely for training and upgradation of systems with in the organisation.

So far the major RCM companies in India have been focussing on large sized hospitals in US, the less than 500 bed mid sized hospitals are untouched. This niche market will become attractive in the coming years for RCM companies to work on.

With the internal development in healthcare business with in the country along with the outsourced businesses, the RCM business in India has a tremendous growth opportunity in the coming years.

What is required to grab a major pie of this business is to keep investing money and time to employ / train periodically the healthcare management personnel and invest on the advanced technology to store, manage and analyse, data which helps in automating the RCM process. With these in place, no stopping India as a future leader in Revenue Cycle Management.

Here is a list of business ideas that novice entrepreneurs, having minimal finance options, can utilise to earn maximum profit in minimal return period.

Starting Off with Rs. 1,000

A great business idea to start off with nearly Rs. 1,000 is ultra-short temping services. As a part of this business, the companies provide manpower services on a temporary basis to event management firms. The break-even period for this business is close to 10 months and a gross profit of approximately 20 percent can be expected. An important skill needed to make this business a success is networking. Organizing private tuitions is yet another excellent business idea to earn a handsome income with Rs. 1000.

All you need to do is occasional investments associated with purchase of new books in case there is a change of syllabus.

Business Idea for an Investment of Rs. 7,000

A good business idea with a budget as minimal as Rs. 7,000 is a shoe-wash company.

Home Based Business Ideas

Home-based businesses have become very popular these days. Thanks to the rising cost of setting up full-time businesses! The added advantage of any

home-based business is that the whole affair can be done from the comfort of one’s home. Working from home also implies that whatever one earns is a bonus. Home-based businesses have nowadays become highly preferred options for urban, educated housewives as well as retirees who are looking for fresh avenues from where they can keep on earning money.

List of Home-Based Business Ideas

Accountancy

Accountancy is one job that any accountant who possesses necessary experience and requisite license and training can do from home. An accountant can start his/her business by making a flier that details the list of the various services rendered by him/her along with the respective quotations. To be on a safer side, an accountant may begin by providing bookkeeping services for smaller business houses with lesser operations and subsequently, when he/she gets to know the tricks of the trade, they can take on elaborate accounting projects..

Generally, the work of an accountant entails:

  • Balance Sheets
  • Financial Reports
  • Income Statements

These can be done monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or yearly. However, the timing is normally determined by the business organization.

Tax Accounting

Apart from primary accounting services, one can also focus on tax accounting, an area of work that has a huge potential to grow in the future. In most cases, business owners like to have their books kept by their own staff but look for professional help when it comes to taxes.

Business Plan Services

Another lucrative option for accountants can be preparing business plans for start-ups. For people with sufficient experience and knowledge of the business world and its workings, business plan services can be a viable career option. This includes services such as doing market research and coming up with financial statements and business plan texts.

List of Part time (home based) Business Ideas

Cleaning Services

Providing cleaning services is one option that people can do on a part-time basis from their homes. People interested in this business need some capital so that they can recruit workers. There are many directions in which this business can be taken. For people who are willing to offer services during the unusual hours, offices are the most viable options. One can look at retail establishments and focus on particular areas such as localities. Restaurants are great places where one can offer cleaning services since they are so often in need of the day-to-day cleaning. They can provide a steady stream of clients.

One can also look at houses especially major apartment blocks. One of the major advantages of this business is that one does not need to spend a lot of money on publicity since most of it happens by word of mouth.

Computer Services

Providing cleaning services is also a viable option in the part-time business segment. However, experience, certification and a certain level of education are needed in order to be successful. It is also important to have a clear idea of the areas where the prospective clients might want you to focus on. Following are some of the examples:

  • Word Processing
  • Spreadsheets
  • Manipulating Photographs
  • Designs
  • Merging Mails
  • Security

Home based Business Ideas for Housewives

Art – Painting, Jewellery Designing and Dress Designing

One major option that housewives, who wish to earn while being at home, can take on is that of an artist. There are so many ladies who have artistic capabilities but are unable to work full-time because of their domestic responsibilities. However, in their spare time, they can draw paintings and then sell them online either by creating their own websites or through other websites that have a guaranteed clientele. They can also go for other forms of art such as dress designing and jewellery designing.

Blogging

Blogging is also one career option that most educated urban housewives have been taking up these days. Apart from being a highly fulfilling endeavour, if properly monetized, it can also yield great dividends. Experienced housewives can also take up the career of bridal consultant, if not wedding management. This is especially for women who love to be part of weddings and have a great eye for detail.

Cooking

In case someone is a good cook and specializes in confectioneries such as cakes, pastries, muffins, brownies, even pickles, etc. then it will be a great idea to take that forward. In businesses such as these, it is important to use social networks and social media contacts properly because that is how one generates publicity for one’s work and capability.

Others

Women with good social skills and high level of education can also become life coaches. Women who have thorough knowledge about yoga can also start their own training classes as per their daily schedules. Educated women who have done specialization in certain subjects; for instance, accounts, mathematics, English or science, may also provide tutorial services either at their home or virtually.

Home based Business Ideas for Retirees

Consultancy

For retired people with the requisite experience, consultancy is a great career option. Retirees can use the experience they have gained all these years to help their clients in the respective domains. This will provide them monetary benefit. Overall credibility and little social marketing may help attract more clients.

People who love animals such as dogs can use their houses, especially if they have large ones, as crèches where owners can keep their pets when they are on the move. However, it is better to get a license and have some experience of having had pets beforehand. This will ensure that one is able to understand the requirements of the pets as well as their owners.

Dog Daycare and Boarding

People who love animals such as dogs can use their houses, especially if they have large ones, as crèches where owners can keep their pets when they are on the move. However, it is better to get a license and have some experience of having had pets beforehand. This will ensure that one is able to understand the requirements of the pets as well as their owners.

Content Services

Content services are also great when it comes to earning some money while sitting at home. There are different options in this domain that one can choose from, such as copyediting, ghost writing, proofreading, copywriting, indexing, book writing, developmental editing, writing articles for magazines, book doctoring and providing content for web pages.
