Where will we be thirty years from now??

Met this client who is a die hard Indian but worked abroad all through...  He had worked in several countries including Dubai, Tanzania, S'pore, Brazil and Ivory Coast and was quite amused coming back to India. 


After squaring off our business he generally asked me my age and with some reluctance I told him "thirty one"!!

He started off by saying We have five layers of society...  First is the Ultra educated Professionals like doctors, lawyers  etc from top rung…

Chrome OS - Doomed Before It Is Out of the Gate (Brain Job #2)

Chrome OS is one big lemon just waiting to drop and get squashed under its own weight.  This has nothing to do with the right-hand competing with the left-hand Android OS although that may be a contributing factor.  More critical is its foundational philosophy.

My first love

Once upon a time there was a kid who, like most of us, feared examinations. So he prayed to god to give him a magic pen that could help him answer all the questions correctly in any exam.

One day in his dream a fairy came to him. She promised to grant him one wish. Promptly he asked the fairy for a magic pen. The fairy took him to a big palace and told him that there is a magic pen in a chamber deep inside that palace.

Fire in the belly

Over the weekend I was at IIT Kanpur.

The top team from India will be selected to participate in the world finals which will have about 80 teams selected from about 60 centers across the world.

Why I love my Mom’s Cooking?

I claim to be a good cook. I indulge in this passion occasionally. But when I do, I will also invite few friends so that I can show-off my culinary skills. I select some exquisite dishes from the collection of cookery books that my wife maintains. I will then ask my wife to get all the ingredients and get the maid to do all the cleaning, cutting and chopping. Then later in the afternoon after a nice nap, I will land up in the kitchen to commence my artistic composition of various ingredients…
