Parallels and Laterals

August 17, 2006

Since Manmohanomics became the flavour of the India’s neo-economy, we have seen the rapid opening up of our markets. I remember hearing of how Coca~cola used to cost 50 paise a bottle at the time my parents were enjoying their college lives. Then Krumpled Kurta (who I believe has now patented this style of clothing) […]

Twins in charge

July 19, 2006

Strange are the ways of our world. We have heard of cricketer twins (the Waugh brothers) and such. Now we have twins in control of Poland. Will they be able to tell if Jaroslaw came to the right office or did Lech? Thankfully, they don’t have melas to add to the confusion. :)Or we might […]

India Inc.

July 18, 2006

Who are we kidding? Corporate India’s dirty laundry just got washed in public. ASSOCHAM’s outrage at Corporate’s potrayal of how big businesses work in India does not hold water.

Rain Drops

May 29, 2006

Life breezes past in a blur of activity. Projects to manage, deadlines to meet, clients to please….a zillion To-dos….but the list is not endless….. for it stops at drop dead. So it ends…oh yes, it definitely ends. And sometimes you are enjoying the journeys of life in the course of you work, others, you are […]

Caste Aside

April 20, 2006

Before we even have a chance to recover from the proposed re-Mandalization of our educational institutions, the caste brigade delivers yet another blow. Reservations in the private sector! Caste politics can take a back seat in this new drama. There is much more to this latest call for dividing the masses than meets the eye. […]

Womenomics

April 17, 2006

Ok so this one was late……but it is worth the wait.. :). Here is what The Economist magazine has to say about the role of women in shaping the world in years to come. “WHY can’t a woman be more like a man?” mused Henry Higgins in “My Fair Lady”. Future generations might ask why […]
