What Indians are planning to do this New year while bringing in 2018?

Aimed at understanding what Indians are planning to do this New Year while bringing in 2018, the market research and data analysis company Velocity MR announced the results of their latest study. The study covered five key metros of India including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai with a sample size of 3000+ adults. The respondents were in the age group of 25 to 55, with a 60:40 split between men and women respectively. The study was conducted by Velocity MR through an online survey on their Markelytics Panel among people drawn from varied demographics.

The study found that most respondents shopped online in the past few weeks for a variety of products to bring in the New Year. Top New Year resolutions for 2018 included people wanting to earn more money right on top, followed by wanting a positive approach towards life and thirdly becoming more confident and thereby taking more risks. Brand salience or top of mind recall during New Year shopping was found to be significant in only a few categories such as alcohol, food and travel. However, it was found that trust and value are considered even more important during this season.
Sharing his thoughts about the study, Jasal Shah, MD & CEO, Velocity MR said,  “As India matures as a market in line with global economies, so are its consumers. This is reflected in this study which shows the maximum number of people today opting to shop online for all their needs from food to clothes to gifts, etc. which is a growing trend year on year. The study also outlines the relationship between brands and consumers and the importance of building a bond during such occasions”.

Crime Patrol देख कर एक तरफ़ा प्यार करने वाले मजनू ने की छात्रा की हत्या

Sony TV पर Crime Patrol और Life Ok पर Savdhan India दो ऐसे शो है जो दर्शको को अपराध और अपराधियों से सतर्क करने का दावा करते है, लेकिन हालही में राजस्थान के बांसवाड़ा जिले में हुए छात्रा के हत्या कांड के खुलासे ने इन चैनेलो के दावों को ना सिर्फ झुठलाया है बल्कि आपराधिक गतिविधियों को बढ़ावा देने के लिए जिम्मेदार भी ठहराया है.

दरअसल राजस्थान के बांसवाड़ा जिले का है जहाँ एक छात्रा की हत्या से सनसनी फ़ैल गयी थी. मामला एक तरफ़ा प्यार का था, जहाँ लड़का लड़की से प्यार करता था. जब लड़की ने प्रेम का प्रस्ताव ठुकरा दिया तो लड़के ने Crime Patrol से प्रेरित हो कर अपने जन्म दिन के बहाने एक आखरी बार मिलने बुलाया था, लड़की जब मिलने पहुंची तो उसकी हत्या कर दी गयी.

अपराधी को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया और उसने अपना ज़ुर्म भी कबूल कर लिया है, पुलिस कार्यवाही भी कर रही है. लेकिन अब सवाल ये उठता है कि आज हम २१ वीं सदी में होने के बावजूद भी देश में ऐसा माहौल बनाने में विफल रहे है जहाँ महिलाओ को एक सुरक्षित वातावरण मिल सके. महज़ किसी सीरियल या फ़िल्म से प्रेरित हो कर युवा इस तरह की घटनाओ को अंजाम दे रहे है तो इसका मतलब ये है …
