Maradona – Genius and Rebel

Maradona was not just a football player, he was perhaps the most attractive and magnetic personality the game of football has ever seen. Way back, for young kids like me, he was Football himself.

Remembering you..

Your legacy lives on.. Steve – the first iPod launch, the first iPhone launch, the first iPad launch.. I don’t think I can ever forget those iconic product launches.

Inevitable 2018, Hello!

2017 was a roller coaster year. Well, I can call it adventurous and tumultuous in the same breath. Yes, you might argue that these expressions don’t quite sit adjacent to each other.
