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.
During my engineering days at Bangalore I used to go to the nearby Hare
Krishna Hare Rama temple of ISKCON. An engineer Swami (yes most of the
sanyasins there have a professional background) held a class on 'Gita'
one fine Sunday. We were around 20 in this spiritual classroom. All
with diverse backgrounds, religion (there were Hindus, Jain,
Christians, two Sikhs and a Muslim, too), caste, profession and
Swamiji then started the lecture by asking one
simple question to each of us, "Who are you?". The question looked
pretty simple. The guy sitting next to me immediately replied, "I am
Mrugesh Dravid". Then pointing t .....
Sujata Anandan has again written in her 'The Oped Page' in Hundustan Times, Mumbai edition (December 12, 2007) why Gujaratis should feel ashamed of themselves! I don't understand for the main reason why is she so much after making the community to be ashamed of themselves for voting Modi!
Anandan thinks she is writing something smart which will impress likeminded Gujaratis and others from the rest of the India who vote against Modi! Well, she's fooling herself then. The people of Gujarat, all gujaratis and I believe the entire literate India is for development. Under the tenure of Modi's government in Gujarat, the state has witne .....
We are not here to define what is management. We are here to put management in practice!
There exist a load of hypes about the ethics in management, but very less among them talk about the real thing. We should do that and we should do this - what a crap! People talk about management but these talks are never applied. Theories can't help you win a serious game, you should be practical. Apply your thoughts and then advice others! And, it's true for the people who are accepting such worldly wisdom from unacknowledged sources which has not been put in practice so far.
I remember one of my professors advising our class one day, ''Lo .....
'When I speak, even angels listen to me! 'Coz my words are worldly acknowledged and no soul in this earth can d-e-n-y my superiority over it!'
Grrrh, now that was something heavy to digest. Looks like that funny acting guy in 'Sansani' popping up every evening and warning every citizen of India. Anyway, a friend of mine just dropped by explaining how horrible his presentation went last evening. He fears he might lose the potential project and the client due to that. We both went for a cup of coffee and the following is what came out! (coffee can be so fruitful sometimes!)
This is an article I wrote back in February 2004 with inputs from my uncle Kapil Pandya.
The Clinton-Lewinsky Affair
The media published the affairs of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky
very highly and that much advertisement they never published about
Clinton's presidency job. The media used the name of the personality
and did the marketing to sell their news!
Lewinsky was a worker secretary at the White House of the USA and
step-by-step by using the soft-nature of President Clinton she got
closer to him. She was, after, often shown among the personal caravan
of Clinton. And then by applying her .....
"What is written here is everywhere else and what is not written in here is nowhere in the world!"
I remembered these legendary words from our all-time best epic 'The Mahabharata' penned by Muni Ved Vyas when I saw this great movie recently. I went to the library and read the Greek epic on which the story of this film is based - The Iliad. It's one of the two epics of Greece (Iliad and Odyssey), both written by blind poet Homer.
For the whole last week I wasn't actually here in the polluted streets of Mumbai, for my mind knew now a place which created a virtual 'troy' within my day-dreams! I literally walked the roads of .....
