"There is definitely a positive momentum. Fast economic growth in the recent months, normal monsoon rains and the consumer shift towards personal mobility have all supported this positive trend," HMIL's Director Sales and Marketing Tarun Garg said.

Automobile major Hyundai Motor India expects healthy sales during the upcoming festive season which will be supported by pent-up demand in the coming months. Nevertheless, the company maintains a cautious stance due to the ongoing pandemic. In a conversation with IANS, HMIL's Director Sales and Marketing Tarun Garg: "Till now, the trend during the festive season (Onam 2021) seems to be encouraging". "We expect it (trend) to continue as the main festive season approaches."

In 2020, Hyundai posted retail sales growth of 28 per cent during the nine day Navratri period including Dussehra. The company during that period had retailed 26,068 units. Accordingly, this year, Garg pointed out that the healthy demand for the company's SUV segment as well as diesel powertrains have become key drivers of sales growth. "There is definitely a positive momentum. Fast economic growth in the recent months, normal monsoon rains and the consumer shift towards personal mobility have all supported this positive trend," he said.

Last month, Hyundai Motor India sold 60,249 vehicles, a growth of 45.9 per cent on a year-on-year basis. Besides, Garg credited the growth till now on the company's strategy to offer the widest range of cars across all fuel types and price points. "Our newly launched 6- and 7-seater SUV Alcazar has stroked a positive customer response along with high off-take of our other products like Creta, i20 and Venue." "Especially in the diesel segment, where we have seen consistent growth." At present, the automaker offers diesel cars from entry to premium level segments. Furthermore, the company in its 25th year of existence in the country expects to maintain strong sequential growth momentum. However, even as sales' prospect seems promising, Garg cautioned against an element of uncertainty surrounding the pandemic's progression.

What the Heck Do I Do With My Life?: How to Flourish in Our Turbulent Times

Many causes, including technology, climate change, demographics, and inequality, will cause our planet to change more in this century than in all of human history. Extreme change is offering unparalleled opportunities for individuals, companies, and society, as well as a 'adaptive challenge.' Those who can adapt to a fast-paced, complex, dynamic, and unpredictably changing world will prosper. Those who are unable to do so will suffer immensely.

There are obvious signals that we need new ways of thinking about the world and our place in it all over the place. Our old ways of thinking about education, lifestyle, success, and happiness are no longer valid. What are the changes in the workplace? When future jobs are still being invented, how can you know what talents will be useful? Will 'jobs' even exist in the future, or will we be relegated to a world of projects and freelance work? What do you do with all of this and more?

What the Heck Do I Do With My Life? is a book on figuring out what you want to do with your life. Ravi Venkatesan argues that effective adaptation in the twenty-first century necessitates a "paradigm shift," a new attitude, new talents, and new techniques. Ravi also considers how, rather than drifting along like a piece of driftwood, we will need to live life more consciously, making deliberate decisions about who we are, what we do, and how we live.

On the night of August 7, 2021, a billion Indians' long-held desire came true as Neeraj Chopra won gold in the javelin in the Tokyo Olympics 2020. The wait, on the other hand, had been extremely long. In reality, this is India's first individual gold medal in athletics since the modern Olympic Games began. The entire country showered him with affection when he did it in his signature flair and smile. The media went crazy, and the youth discovered a new source of inspiration. People flocked to get their photos taken with him, and businesses discovered a new wonder-ambassador. Neeraj Chopra: I'm Neeraj Chopra, and I'm From Panipat to the Podium begins in a small village in Panipat and tells the story of his formative years, which were marked by restricted resources and opportunities.

It's A Wonderful World: A Memoir

His book is a provocative read that makes us wish we had a life like his. Khalid Ansari's life has been an exciting and purposeful journey in service to his fellow human beings, beginning with his birth in Mumbai's impoverished Madanpura to a father who began his life as an orphan and a mother from a poor household. Ansari has attempted to depict some highlights of a splendored life that he has been lucky to experience, catching stars while chasing rainbows in this 'donkey's tale'. It's been la vie en rose for him, from founding newspapers and magazines to representing his country at the United Nations, accompanying dignitaries on state visits, covering cricket Test matches, nine Olympics, Commonwealth and Asian Games, travelling the world, and being awarded the Padma Shri award. The author has worked hard to keep this narrative from devolving into a 'I-did-this-did-that' pat-on-the-back, shabash!' By 'spicing' it up with dollops of frothy stories and self-critical bon mots, he has attempted a discourse on the meaning of life, the 'right path,' and the like, even as he has attempted a discourse on the purpose of life, the 'right route,' and the like.
