Different outlooks towards life !

Vijay TV has the Tamil version of the famous “Kaun Banega Crorepati” or “Who wants to be a millionnaire” called “Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi” hosted by Suriya (the original “Ghajini”). About three days back there was this participant from the fisherman community, who left a huge impression. She was bubbly, full of verve, […]

How Funny !

Once upon a time farmers grew rice, wheat, other grains and vegetables and we managed to eat well. Then fertilizers were created and one more potent than the other. The same farmers managed to double their yields, sometimes triple their yields and we all managed to eat well. Then some […]

The great germ buildup

Watch the adverts closely … most of them are about germs in your mouth, on your hands, in your armpits and overall everywhere and how to save yourself from these germs. We seem to be swayed by the West, especially America. I was at a farmer’s market in the US […]

What is your story ?

Long meetings, goal setting, manager training, client meetings, shareholder/stakeholder meetings, people issues, emails, operations/financial reviews… And a long day at work comes to an end, only to begin afresh in a few hours. Today during one of the above meetings I realised that a lot of people go through their […]

Price of development

For a change today I read the newspaper and one of my favourite ladies was the editor for Times of India, Sunita Narain. Read about her at this link. My mind stopped at just one article – that Bangalore had 625 lakes !!! Today it has 17 lakes only down […]

31, 32 and the heart attacks :(

She brought a new life to earth and left ten minutes after.. Massive heart attack at 31. The little baby girl will now grow up without a mom and hope the world doesn’t lay the blame on her. Strange are the ways of life and death. This happened earlier in […]

Non-degradable PY

On 30th May 2009, Krishnan and I woke up early and went for a cycle ride … Little knowing then that we were succumbing to a lifelong passion !! We were to meet some more folk at the Genpact signal. I was without a helmet for the first and last […]

The out of shape silver pot

It was the marriage of his youngest daughter and he wept in a corner as the “son-in-law” banged the silver pot to test the purity of the silver… little did he know that this man would not just bang the inanimate silver pot but nearly kill his daughter 😦 I […]

Luck and the big stage

The most topical thing thats caught our attention – IPL. I have said it before .. I don’t like it. Its like the Roman extravagance with enough wealth, women and wine flowing. Nothing against www but the combination usually does not lead to good results. But its a good stage […]

Ring the bell …

How funny is life.. Those that you wish you never met in life you meet everyday and slap on a smile and get along and those that you wish you meet every minute just never get time !! Our best friends stay far away and phones, Facebook, BBM, email and all other means of connection […]
