How has 2016 shaped up!!!


Started the year without much fanfare, party, expectations, resolutions etc. It was a simply start and spent the whole day at home.

But on business end it was very much happening 45 days, where each and everyday was productive and progressive!!

  • It was time for reinvention for Cogzidel Technologies and a lot is happening there…
  • It is progressive for Cogzidel Consultqncy Services too… A new initiative has be launched and Bala is at his best…
  • We have resumed on the Coffee Shop initiative, a trimmed down version to start with… It is a Coffee Kiosk and we have started the setup process… Happy that a long standing dream has come true… We should be up and running by second week of March…
  • Working on a pilot project for Citizen Journalism initiative… It’s a seven year old initiative and started working on this for a month now… Happy to see the pilot run is showing some momentum… We must be stepping into our Alpha run in 2-3 months from now…
  • Personally working on my Crowd Funding project… Spending less than an hour everyday… Planning to go on to pilot phase once completing the Pilot Run for Citizen Journalism and Coffee Kiosk launch… Might be less than 2 months from now…

Even on personal front it is satisfying;

  • Worked with my mother on wrapping up of banking work…
  • Helped my mother to find vendors for house repair work… Though my mother is taking care of execution, I did the challenging part of finding vendors…
  • Attended family functions along with my mother… Made my mother feel happy as I don’t attend any functions…
  • Spent some quality time with my wife…

So, far I’m happy that I’m able to progress and balance on multiple initiatives. Though there are challenged and stumbling blocks, they are managed and was able to overcome them successfully!!

Had meeting with Bala Murugan


It was long time since I’ve spent time with Bala… Finally it ended to be a productive and fulfilling meeting…

– I had asked him to help me on insurance refunds for my dad and to get it done..
– Discussed about PF…
– Discussed about Group MediClaim…
– Discussed about gratuity…
– About sales team building…

Then it was in-depth discussion on Sales strategy and I covered most of the places where I failed when I was handling the sales team…

We have jotted the points for a 2 week intense training program… And their one month pilot sales project…

Have the training program scheduled by 11 am today… Am rushing to office and will post a separate blog on the experience….

Life with Crowd Funding


It is going to be 2 years and it has been a great two years run. When i sat to prepare on my future plans or next milestone for the company; I realized I’ve been standing on the same foot for almost 10 years. Even with my previous company I started feeling about stagnation and I came our by that time. Now again I’m feeling stagnation and not sure about the Value as a company we are going to office. After much brainstorming i couldn’t think much. I think it is time to jump out of the comfort zone and take some chances and work on some cutting edge projects and slowly step into R & D. After making up my mind to step into next challenge and make life more exciting like how it was during 2002 & 2008 I’ve decided to work on raising funds.

In fact finance is one department which I haven’t explored and i want to try my hands on that too. So, we have decided to work on two types of fund raising;

  • Raising capital through Private Equities…
  • Raising through Crowd Funding.

It has been hardly a week since we have started and after starting it is like opening the pandora box. Every day i’m struck with something and I’ve to work on new tasks to facilitate the progress of core idea. I sleep every day without contention. I feel the day was half complete as i’m not done with my pursuit. But this is what making my life meaningful. I use to have the same feeling when i started my first company & with Cogzidel Consultancy Services. Today I’m happy with the progress of CCS & all those thought of half baked days are making today a contented day.

I’ve lots of personal lessons where perseverance has paid yields… For now i’m working on strategies for crowd funding and withing a week we are planning start our first pilot campaign…

If any of you have any knowledge or information about Crowd funding kindly ping me… I might need your help on it…

Coming Soon!! New office for CCS…


Hooray!! Cogzidel Consultancy Services has grown from a baby to adolescent kid which is on itz own within once year inception. Having started with a shared office a year back, we are moving to our own leased premise near Kodambakkam.

From now on we can accomplish a lot of goals and the first thing is my dream project of starting a incubation center where we can help startups by proving space and infrastructure when they are at bootstrapping stage.

Now it is time sit and draw proto type for interior design and interesting part of planning and budgeting.

CCS files I-T returns for Reliance BigFlix Chennai Staff


bigflixI’m thrilled to have Reliance BigFlix as one of our client. I think this is one great moment in the books of CCS and kudos to Mr.Bala Murugan for his non-stop follow up and for striking the deal. Though this is a small deal we are thrilled for more than one reason. 

  • BigFlix admin team Googled for “tax consultants” and got our link from Google Search.
  • It is always nice to see your website site working for you.
  • Then another excitement is working for a brand like Reliance.

Now I think we must be a part of their vendor list and would be glad to grow our business with them and try to win more orders with this credential.

Once again Nice Job Bala!!!!!
