Why do some people run away from what/whom they love most? Why do somepeople just keep turning away? Why are some people afraid to see things as they are? Why do some people hide behind the facade of "some people"?

Everyone passes through a phase in life where (s)he feels that history is repeating itself in some way. Everyone feels at some point in life an urge to change the past. But the third dimension of history is always fiction. May be we think what we want ourselves to think - associating certain things with the past which might not have been what they have been. May be I am afraid to put down my thoughts, lest the future might show me the past the way it had been.

Dead, and loving it!

If this is to be believed, I'm living on borrowed time.

Jats did it!

Finally I made it (fists clenched, a victory yell). 4 years after dreaming the dream, I am ready to live it now. If haven't guessed what I am talking about, I am going to IIM-A. It has been a long journey upto here and the road gets a bit steeper now. But who is complaining.

Update (18th July): Well..steeper was an understatement.. i should have said.. on the highway to hell!!

Sense prevails

Finally, good sense prevails and our network guys have removed the block from the blogger site. Hope to resume blogging soon after taking care of just a few things. Keep watching the space.

Well, I am not trying to sell vegetables here. Bhindi is the way Hindi is spoken in Bambaiyaa eeshtyle.

Check out the Mumbai Dictionary.

Bole to, ekdum Jhakas!

Testing testing..

Sorry for not being able to blog for so long. The login page for blogger has been blocked in my office. And it has taken me a long time to figure out an alternative. Silly me. I have now changed the settings and posting through email. I hope that this works out.

Are you behind a firewall that blocks out access to your favourite mail sites? Here is a gateway for you:

Yahoo: click

Hope these work out for you.

Business of Outsourcing

Infosys chairman N.R. Narayana Murthy on the Outsourcing backlash:

Let me explain that to you — when I get up in the morning I use my LG refrigerator, a South Korean product. You know we had our own refrigerator industry but it could not compete with these MNCs so it closed down, and jobs were lost. Then I drink a Coke or a Pepsi — we had our own soft drink industry but they closed down and jobs were lost. Then I use my Toyota — we had our own car industry, not very good but still, and it too had to close down and again jobs were lost. Then I come to my office and I use my Toshiba laptop or my Dell desktop — we too had our computer industry but it could not compete with the global giants and they had to close down — so you see again we lost jobs.

Now, I could take two views, the first view is we must keep these MNCs away as they cause loss of jobs — probably five million jobs. The second view is these MNCs have enhanced competition in India, they have enhanced customer satisfaction, as a result, 200 or 300 million Indians have benefited. I would like to believe that a paradigm which has benefited 300 million Indians is much better than not having that.

Nice stuff. Read the full interview here.
