  • It is particularly heartening to note that there are persons in India who are determined to wreck one of the few industries where India has achieved world class and where Indian companies are considered formidable operators. I brought to the attention of the finance minister of China the fact that Indian IT companies who till the other day were poster boys of India are now being harassed despite earlier explicit and emphatic assurances that on-site project implementation revenues would be treated as export income. The finance minister of China was salivating. He is now looking forward to global corporations and for that matter, Indian IT companies are moving more and more of their activities to China. He plans to write to you in order to congratulate you on the wonderful steps that your government is taking that will be of immense benefit to China.
    Sincerely yours,
    Finance Minister of the Philippines

  • Management Secrets: Core Beliefs of Great Bosses | Inc.comAverage bosses buy into the notion that work is, at best, a necessary evil. They fully expect employees to resent having to work, and therefore tend to subconsciously define themselves as oppressors and their employees as victims. Everyone then behaves accordingly.
    Extraordinary bosses see work as something that should be inherently enjoyable–and believe therefore that the most important job of manager is, as far as possible, to put people in jobs that can and will make them truly happy.

  • Thoughts on the Future of Content – Gautam John’s BlogI think the models of protection, be it law or technology, are fast dying and we need to move from protection to sharing. That solitary consumption of content will move to group and shared experiences. And what’s tremendously powerful there is that you then have the ability to influence not only what other people will watch and hear and listen to, but also the kinds of content that are being created. That the content industry needs to move from being gatekeepers of content to curators of content, and that top-down models of content creation will go the way of the dinosaur very soon because (a) we have the Internet to distribute content and (b) tools are available to everyone. So the high priest model of content creation will very soon be challenged, as we saw in the case of Encyclopaedia Britannica, by the community models of content creation.

Dhan-te-tan Lyrics

Absolutely loving it. Hope Anannya posts an english translation soon (like he did for Jai Ho)

Aaja Aaja Dil Nichode
Raat Ki Mataki Tode
Koi Good Luck Nikaale
Aaj Gullak Toh Phode
Aaja Aaja Dil Nichode
Raat Ki Mataki Tode
Koi Good Luck Nikaale
Aaj Gullak Toh Phode
Hai Dil Dildaara Mera Teli Ka Tel
Kaudi Kaudi Paisa Paisa Paise Ka Khel
Are re re re
Hai Dil Dildaara Mera Teli Ka Tel
Kaudi Kaudi Paisa Paisa Paise Ka Khel

Chal Chal Sadako Pe Hogi Than Than
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.

Aaja Aaja Dil Nichode
Raat Ki Mataki Tode
Koi Good Luck Nikaale
Aaj Gullak Toh Phode
Aaja Aaja

Hey Aaja Aaja

Aaja Ki One Way Hai Yeh Jindagi Ki Gali
Ek Hi Chance Hai
Aage Hawa Hi Hawa Hai Agar Saans
Hai Toh Yeh Romance Hai

Hey Aaja Ki One Way Hai Yeh Zindagi Ki Gali
Ek Hi Chance Hai
Aage Hawa Hi Hawa Hai Agar Saans
Hai Toh Yeh Romance Hai

Yehi Kehate Hai
Yehi Sunate Hai
Jo Bhi Jaata Hai, Jaata Hai
Woh Phir Se Aata Nahi

Aaja Aaja Dil Nichode
Raat Ki Mataki Tode
Koi Good Luck Nikaale
Aaj Gullak Toh Phode

Hai Dil Dildaara Mera Teli Ka Tel
Kaudi Kaudi Paisa Paisa Paise Ka Khel
Chal Chal Sadako Pe Hogi Than Than
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.

Koi Chaal Aisi Chalo Yaar Abb Ke
Samundar Bhi Pul Pe Chale
Phir Tu Chale Usape Ya Main Chalu
Shehar Ho Apane Pairo Tale
Koi Chaal Aisi Chalo Yaar Abb Ke
Samundar Bhi Pul Pe Chale
Phir Tu Chale Usape Ya Main Chalu
Shehar Ho Apane Pairo Tale

Kai Khabare Hai
Kai Khabare Hai
Jo Bhi Soye Hai Khabaro Me Unko Jagaana Nahi

Aaja Aaja Dil Nichode
Raat Ki Mataki Tode
Koi Good Luck Nikaale
Aaj Gullak Toh Phode
Aaja Aaja
Hai Dil Dildaara Mera Teli Ka Tel
Kaudi Kaudi Paisa Paisa Paise Ka Khel

Chal Chal Sadako Pe Hogi Than Than
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.
Dhan Te Nan Ta Da Da Da.

Slipping off the path

Isn’t it ironic? That a week after i wrote about reducing information flows in my life, I have 81 unread mail-threads (roughly 600 emails) in my gmail box, another 100 unread blogposts in my reader, and at least 10 new documents on my desktop to read?

There’s also a serious sleep-deprivation & lack of time to spend with family.

Makes one think, doesn’t it? And what am i doing writing blogposts? Right, be good now +poof+

Tweet Twitter Tweetup

No…i’m not indulging in baby talk. Just wanted to let you guys know that DBM is organising a tweetup in Delhi on 16th March (Sunday). Am posting below a message from Twilight Fairy to the DBM group (the “official” one) 😉

When : 16th March’08, 5pm
Where : Costa coffee, L-8, Outer circle, Connaught place, Delhi
What : a quick chirp by @Sanjay Shrivastava on demystifying “twitter ” for those who do not know about it but would like to understand the nitty gritties. He would be getting his laptop and data card to give a quick demo on the same. After that all of us birdies indulge in some chirping, getting acquainted with each other, evangelising of twitter and also thinking up new, innovative uses of it :).
For confirmations you can do any of the following:
1. Send a confirmation tweet @delhitweetup.
2. Respond to this mail on the group.
3. Add your name to the list at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/103598867
So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
