There is one gentleman by the name of R Sridhar, who for many years now has been writing very insightful stuff on Branding / Advertising. He has got a nice blog called "Third Umpire on Branding". Check it

Thanks dude. Added the blog to the list.

hi nimish
it would be really nice if you could slightly change it to Badmaash Banna. As that is the name of this film which i have written with Indranil Goswami. Badmaash Anna just makes me a Badmaash South Indian, hahahahaha, take care.
