Making the Most of Facebook
With the country going through yet another fresh batch of blockades and hartals, there really seems to be no reprieve in sight. With the politicians hell-bent on limiting our daily lives to just the confines of our homes, it's no surprise that social media has turned into a more vocal outlet of thoughts than ever before. We have people ranting, trying (and failing, in most cases) to be funny or even indifferent about the whole situation. There's even people trying to do business on these social networking sites. Yes, they've been at it for a while now but the current situation only highlights their importance to our fast-crippling economy. Beneath all the burned bodies and charred buses there is still a country to be run and lives to be led. The people thirsting for the throne might have forgotten that but we are, as is always the case, left to rummage through the rubble in order to maintain a semblance of sanity in our lives. So, take a look at this promising market and maybe think of starting a business of your own. I know I wouldn't want to be opening a shop on a burning street.
