This is yet another episode of Uncut & Unedited. This is the 31st episode of my show. In this episode I have a very special guest. He is a very famous person in Indian Technology arena and is also popularly known as Gadget Guru. Did it ring a bell. Well let me tell you who is my guest – he is none other than Mr. Rajiv Makhani. He is officially handling the role of Managing Editor – Technology for one of very popular media houses in India – NDTV.

On Nov 11 2012, Nokia had conducted a unique event known as “App Tasting” in Bangalore. Rajiv Makhani was one of the host who was present in the event. This was my first chance of meeting the Gadget Guru up close and personal. Must say that he was very down to earth and a accommodating person. I just approached and asked for 10 minutes of his busy schedule. In spite of spending 4 hours on stage he obliged my request and spent 10 minutes shooting for my show. I did not have the perfect space to record this interview, so you will hear a lot of corridor noise. Pump up the volume to listen his voice clearly.

As usual I ask the following questions to Rajiv:

  • How did technology happen for Rajiv ?
  • His views on Windows Phone 8 & Windows 8 ?
  • His hands on experience on Windows 8 & windows Phone 8?
  • His perspective on Microsoft Surface ?

I was amazed by the simplicity of the man. He spoke to be with so ease and comfort and never made me feel that he was a celebrity. I had awesome time shooting the Gadget Guru.

Here is the interview video:
