Many of us who've worked with offshore outsourcing companies and/or freelancers often end up thinking that we have perhaps selected the wrong guy for the project. While in more than half of the times you'd be right, many a times you are wrong. Nobody likes to take the blame on his/her own shoulders. Your outsourcing partner company will blame it back to you and you will blame it to them and it will never come to a conclusion. Almost 70% of the modification projects that we get from first time clients is due to the fact that their previous developers left the project half-done in order to pursue some other interests of their own and leavi .....
Some people say that if you believe in ghost, you got to believe in god or vice-versa. Because if there is some negative power, there has to be a positive power; and there is no meaning of a positive power if there is nothing negative in this world. 'The balance of power' law. Well, but this is not why I am writing this article. I have a question - is there anything like a god or ghost anyway? I'm not asking if one of them exist, I'm questioning the existence of both of these figures or entities or powers or anything as such.
This doesn't mean I don't believe in god. I do but I s .....
Maqbool Fida Husain, 'so-called' greatest living artist of Indian
origin (Indian origin because he is a citizen of Qatar
now, no more Indian!) has been in limelight ever since he depicted Hindu gods and
goddesses in 'compromising' positions and even having animal sex. Some Hindu
outfits and individuals demonstrated against this and even filed lawsuits in
courts! There are dozens of cases filed against M F Husain and that is the
reason he has given up the Indian citizenship and taken up the one offered by
the Qatar king.
Our 'liberal' and 'forward minded' democrats have pleaded Husain 'Not Guilty'
in the name of art and freedom of .....
If any of you did recently watch the NDTV Indian Of the Year
2010 Awards on NDTV LifeStyle, I bet you must have got surprised how
and why everybody over there were repeatedly talking about Twitter and
how Twitter has changed their lives for the good!
Bollywood Biggies like Shahrukh Khan, Karan Johar, politicians like MP
Shashi Tharoor (the man is already too much into Twitter!) and the NDTV
anchors were all praise for Twitter. NDTV arranged a special award
called 'Social Networking Award' and Karan Johar was the winner. What
for? For playing salesman to may bollywood personalities in luring them
to join Twitter! Wow, and .....
Political parties have always cached in on the Marathi Manoos agenda and Mumbai of the Marathis 'wrongly' conceptualized philosophy. In 1995 when Bal Thakeray lead 4 decade old Shiv Sena came into power in the state, the first thing the party did was to rename Bombay as Mumbai and the controversy has never stopped since then. Now, his nephew Raj Thakeray's MNS party is harking back to the '60s trying to outdo the Shiv Sena. Like how the British Raj named every street of the old Bombay after a colonel officer, Shiv Sena and MNS are trying to rename all those streets as after either Chhatrapati Shivaji or vir Savarkar. Imagine 15 different p .....
Recent racial attacks on Indian students in Australia has some good news. I heard in TV channels and read in newspapers that many students are withdrawing their plans to continue their study in Melbourne, Sydney or other cities of Australia; but the bad news is that instead they are opting for a UK or US university now. Why is this a bad news? Simply because according to them, India still has nothing good to offer!
I am not against those who go to foreign countries to pursue further studies or in search for a job. The reason why I have such perception about these guys is that they blame it back o .....
It looks sometimes very interesting and surprising to me as to how much we get undue influence by the western media and western publicity and almost whatever they do. Nobody knew Danny Boyle in India even after the release of Slumdog Millionaire worldwide (now I'm not saying he wasn't known among the industry experts, they know every new kid of the block as it's their business). But, as soon as the news of Slumdog Millionaire begging 4 Golden Globes and 7 BAFTA awards spread, Danny Boyle was already a superstar film maker .....
One of my client to whom we provide web development services recently showed me concerns about his website not driving enough traffic as per their team's expectations a few months back. I asked him what were their expectations when they launched or even planned the venture and the answer did not surprise me. Many new website owners make a fundamental mistake thinking that as soon as you have a website that new customers and visitors will be rolling in. This simply is not true. A website is no different from a new store or office in the real wor .....
The exit of the small wonder car 'Nano' from Singur, West Bengal, according to many, will give Bengal a 'troubled state' image. Since the announcement of Tata's Nano project in Singur, the local mafia farmers backed up with the likes of Mamata and her Trinamul Congress Party started opposing this revolutionary project; claiming that the Tatas along with the Government of West Bengal have taken away local farmers' land without their complete will and at a very low market value. They continued claiming that they want the land back. Now that the Mamata-Farmer alliance has won this battle against the Tatas, they came under a shock when they learn .....
We at NCrypted recently went on a campus recruitment hunt at Saurashtra University and Atmiya Institute of Science & Technology, Rajkot (Gujarat, India). I think campus recruitment process is better compared to other orthodox hiring mediums such as newspaper advertisements, job portals, internet forums, job fairs etc. Here you go to that very particular segment which has the pool of candidates that you require. However, you will need to garnish them with your dedicated training program which is another factor - but once trained they can be a nice asset to your organization.
