  18. 18. Blog from Peesh Ola winning rideshare war, against Uber in India On the heels of Ola's 400 million funding announcement: Mobility is the necessary fuel that runs the veins of an economy. No country can survive on public transport, it needs a dependent source connecting people with a door-to-door service. Flipkart winning the e-commerce war against Amazon in India It’s a David Vs Goliath clash in the Indian e-commerce market with Flipkart and Amazon using every method to win the race for mindshare and market share. The battle lines are drawn and no one seems to be backing up. Not too long ago, e-commerce was considered irrelevant in the country since the Indian consumer favored the tangible retail market over virtual buying. Mobile App Trends That Will Change The Way We Live, Move & Work The world has been taken over by a tsunami of technological wave obliterating old paradigms. With newer innovations making the older ones look ridiculously obsolete, technology is constantly evolving to deliver intelligent services, solutions, and information. Talking of technological road-runners, smart devices are a proverbial example that combines every bit of competent technology to bring about a dramatic shift in our life-styles. 18
