Proto04 Day1 – Post Lunch

July 19, 2008

Zzzzzz

Frankly …. Food did its tick and it was Zzzzzz all the way ……. Few speakers came and went … My laptop was discharged and my sense were not with me ….to tell you there was Narayan from 20:20 Media who talked about Building a brand that never dies then there was Amit Ranjan from slideshare who talked about Virality … and Virality coefficients …

Out on a stroll and chat with Vijay

By now I could not control my sleep and so decided to go out and join Manisha , Umesh and other friends, went for a quick stroll around IIT campus. Chit chatted with friend and later joined Umesh and Vijay Anand. Incidentally Umesh is working on an Idea with Prof Jhunjhunwala and is a close friend of Vijay Anand. One confession here …contrary to what I thought of Vijay – some elderly prof at IIT … (now, I dunno how and why I concluded that) he was young and of almost of our age …. So I asked him that perennial question …. How proto thing started? (If you are wondering …who Vijay is … Vijay started this event proto). Here’s the brief story which I came to know from Umesh and Vijay –

Vijay sold of his company (or 3 companies) in Canada for some million dollars and came back to India to work with Prof Jhunjhun wala …and also a vision to start proto a forum, so finally with the help of prof they started off and now on its own in their fourth chapter. May be you would like to know more about it digging on proto website

Mint IT! … Refreshed ….

With that chat we were quiet refreshed to take up the next session by Shashank Ghosh, Film director (Quick Gun Murgan) – He is the guy behind that south Indian cowboy of om shanti om and Mind It! Of Dhoni ad …He talked about his struggle and the dilemma and challenge that creative entrepreneurs or directors face. He talked about how it took him years to make a complete movie with that South Indian Cowboy character. How directors and producers rejected the script and finally when VC invested into his idea , he is now ready to release the movie in September … Watch out the trailer
