THE NAME IS MANN... HARRY MANN
Sorry guys, we could not give you enough notice for this, but Harry Mann is no longer amidst us.
On Sunday October 7, Harry Mann left us peacefully on a flight to Philippines.
But things we presume will not change much at the Herald, cause not one, not two, but a fresh batch of 13 Filipinos will be taking his place at the Herald in the coming month. That the newspaper is such a startling manifestation of its owner Raul Fernandes state-of-mind, can be judged by its current pre-ocupation with Filipinos. Here we find Harry Mann looking straight into your eye, mike to his mouth, telling you... THIS IS WHAT WE SELL. Please believe us when we say that the small caption on the upper left side of the photo was not devised by us. It reads, "Harry Mann explaining the principles of marketing." hahaha
Here, in this pic we see Harry interacting with the staffers at the Herald. These are guys from the accounts section. There's Chandrakant (the guy who's belly Mann seems to be touching). And the balding head in the lower right corner belongs to some guy from the advertsing section.
In this third pic, we see Harry Mann discussing the finer points of marketing with his assistant marketing manager Tulshidas Desai. Now if someone goes around marketing ware, wearing a star and stripes tie with American Bald eagle on it, he needs to sit down with his shrink and deliberate on issues of much graver significance like cerebral health, rather than marketing. What say?
