Bigg Boss sparks new debate and controversy!

Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar’s suggestion that the upcoming Season 6 of India’s biggest reality show Bigg Boss “could target generation next to expand its fan-base to children and teens,” has caused an uproar in the industry circles.

Last week, while answering queries regarding Bigg Boss, the celebrity PR specialist also suggested that “the show could have a separate enclosure or playhouse specially constructed for kids, where they could make merry and also interact with superstar host Salman Khan.”

The idea has sparked a hot debate on whether it is okay to involve children in a reality show that is high on glamour, theatrics and politics, with ex-Housemates saying, it’s a ‘bad idea’!

In a report in Hindustan Times, actor Ashmit Patel said, “I don’t think it’s a good idea at all. The purpose of the show is to put the housemates under such extreme physical, mental, emotional stress that they crumble; thus providing drama and content. I don’t think it’s correct to put a child through this.” Coincidently, Bhagwagar was Ashmit’s publicist during his stormy stint in Season 4.

The report also quoted Miss Afghanistan Vida Samadzai of Bigg Boss Season 5, stating, “I wouldn’t want fragile teens or innocent children to be a part of this war zone.”

But singer-actress Raageshwari who participated in Season 6, seemed to side with Bhagwagar’s view as she commented, “Children need to be nurtured and loved, so if Bigg Boss promises tons of love and emotional protection to children, then it would be interesting to learn from them.”

For the record, Dale Bhagwagar has handled the media affairs for some of the most controversial Bollywood celebrities including Shilpa Shetty during Big Brother, and Bigg Boss contestants Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sambhavna Seth, Vindu Dara Singh, Sherlyn Chopra, Ashmit Patel, Amar Upadhyay and Pooja Misrra, from time to time.

Jacada Enables Simple Creation of Mobile Customer Service Interactions with Downloadable App

Available trial version allows Business and IT professionals alike to create customer service flows for mobile devices through Jacada Mobile Agent

MUMBAI– Aug 29, 2012 –Jacada, Inc., a leading global provider of customer service technology designed to simplify the interaction between businesses and their customers, today announced the public availability of the downloadable trial version for Jacada Mobile Agent, its new mobile product offering. Designed to improve the customer experience, Jacada Mobile Agent reduces inbound call volume and handle time by offering sophisticated self-service capabilities to smartphone and mobile device users. Previously released under beta, the Jacada Mobile Agent interaction designer is now available for immediate download from the company website with companion mobile client applications available in both the App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices.

Delivering a more sophisticated experience than a traditional IVR system, Jacada Mobile Agent presents a Visual IVR to consumers with a much greater range of options for resolving their questions or issues. Users are able to select menu options visually instead of listening for which keys to press, and experience advanced self-service capabilities with the rich features available on today’s mobile devices. Jacada Mobile Agent also bridges the gap between self-service and traditional voice channels by allowing customers to seamlessly connect to a live agent to complete the interaction, without having to repeat information.

“Every once in a while, a technology revolution occurs that is disruptive, and we are witnessing that today with the explosive growth in mobile computing. Through mobile customer service, organizations have a unique opportunity to not only improve customer interactions, but also improve key metrics such as inbound call volume and average handle time,” said Gideon Hollander, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Jacada. “With the release of Jacada Mobile Agent we are excited to bring this technology to anyone who wishes to experience it, by offering a unique downloadable trial kit from our website.”

Jacada Mobile Agent enables customers to engage in a mobile self-service session through an “app” which visually maps out the steps of their customer service interaction. This visual interaction, or Visual IVR, has full support for data entry and sophisticated self-service capabilities, including being able to proactively mine knowledge bases for information and retrieve or update customer information in real time. Jacada’s technology powers this new product by connecting the customer’s self-serve interaction directly with a company’s underlying Line of Business applications to solve their problem.

For calls that do require agent assistance, however, Jacada Mobile Agent provides a seamless transition to the voice channel from the self-service channel. Once the call is connected to the agent, all of the steps already taken by the customer, as well as any data entered, are visible to the agent. By doing so, customers will not have to repeat information. Additionally, the underlying systems can be pre-populated with the customer information, adding a further benefit of reduced handle times.

A supporting white paper entitled “Mobile as the New Engagement Channel” is available for download on Jacada’s website.

Jacada Mobile Agent is patent pending. For more information aboutJacada Mobile Agent or to download the trial kit, visit

Bangalore, August 28, 2012: 92.7 BIG FM, India’s No. 1 FM radio network and Broadcaster of the Year at the Golden Mikes, today kicked off the Bangalore leg ofBIG GREEN GANESHA, marking its fifth successful year of nurturing a better environment through the pioneering concept. Lending further credibility to the property this year is none other than actor Priyanka Upendra, who has come on board to support the initiative and ensure further awareness, excitement and participation in the green cause, while worshipping one of our favourite Gods, Lord Ganesha! The property has Bharathi Cement as sponsors.

Launched in 2006 by 92.7 BIG FM, the initiative is aimed at creating social consciousness towards making one of India’s largest and most popular festivals better and more ecologically sound. In Karnataka, the initiative will help generate awareness in the cities of Bangalore, Mangalore and Mysore.

Drawing attention to the fact that most commonly available idols are created from non-degradable material and the paints used contain a high amount of toxins, BIG Green Ganesha has helped create understanding and gained steady momentum during the last four years by creating a sense of responsibility among communities and delivering significant value to its partners. This year’s campaign is being launched by means of a watchword ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya, Dharti Mata Morya’ in a crusade that protects planet earth while seeking the blessings of Lord Ganesha.

Speaking on the occasion Priyanka Upendra said, “The BIG Green Ganesha campaign is the perfect way to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha and keep the environment clean and green. Ganesha idols made of plaster of Paris seriously damage the ecological balance of the water bodies. I am honoured of be a part of BIG Green Ganesha 2012 started by 92.7 BIG FM. They have been running this campaign for 5 years and are doing a brilliant job of educating people and making them aware about the benefits of adopting eco-friendly Ganeshas.”

The actress, married to Kannada cinema director, actor and script writer Upendra, is passionate about matters related to ecological consciousness and has always been at the forefront of socially relevant causes in the city. 92.7 BIG FM will organise a paper collection drive across 21 centres in Bangalore, 5 in Mysore and 5 in Mangalore, making paper Ganeshas from the collections and putting them up in prominent city malls. The drive will culminate with the BIG GREEN GANESHA Awards, which will be launched on the 19th of September 2012. Radio Jockeys accompanied by top celebrities will travel across cities and announce the names of winners based on measures they’ve taken to create ecologically sound Ganeshas.

Sahas, which has been actively involved in finding solutions to problems related to solid the NGO partner for the Green Ganesha Campaign.

While 13 paper Ganesha statues were put up last year as part of the BGG campaign, this year will witness the erection of 30 Ganesha pandals (special temporary structures) across six major cities and a number of other smaller ones. Cities included in this campaign are Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Indore, Surat, Vizag, Baroda, Mangalore, Gwalior, Mysore, Sholapur and Goa.

Commenting on this campaign Mr. Rabe T. Iyer, Business Head, 92.7 BIG FMsaid, “The launch of the BIG Green Ganesha Campaign demonstrates our commitment towards the environment. We believe that if India comes together, the little things we do can be both enjoyable and help make a positive impact on the environment.
