Positive And Negative Examples Of Leadership From Daily Life

Case StudyAug 29, 2010 - I ran a seven kilometer Marathon run in Chennai, India. Chennai is a large metropolis. The marathon was a free run. The theme was 'I love Chennai'.

I did not count though.. but the number of participants should have been well north of 50000. I saw school kids, college students, young couples, families, people who are young in mind (just like me), and occasionally foreigners too enthusiastically participating in the run. The run took about 60 minutes to complete.

Power Has Immense Potential To Corrupt - Learning From A Movie

Rajneeti'Raajneeti' is a Hindi movie. The word means politics. After the Oscar winning 'Slum Dog Millioner', this movie attempts to take us behind the 'IndYeah!' facade. It lets us have a taste for the overgrown dump of filth that is behind it. The director is an Indian - Prakash Jha.

A state Chief minister's young daughter falls madly in love with an aged communist leader. In an intense moment of passion, the old guy inpregnates the young girl and repents later for his act of sin. He decides to vanish. A son is born. The girl's father disposes the child Mahabaratha (the great Indian myth) style - let afloat a small boat in the river.

Psychology of the Indian Mind: Power-plays that I want to see perish

Zen and the art of application development

ZenMost Indian software engineers value programming experience using a particular technology. Opportunities in latest technologies are always in great demand.

"Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance" showed us the difference between viewing something in it's form or seeing what it meant. Form is about appearance and value. Meaning tends to dig deeper into components, relationships and many a times, the science of what the thing is made of.

நாட்டியல் நாட்டுவோம் !

கல்விஆகஸ்ட் 15, 2010 - பாரதிதாசன் நாட்டியல் நாட்டுவோம் பாடலில் இருந்து ஒரு பகுதி

தென்பால் குமரி வடபால் இமயம்
கிழக்கிலும் மேற்கிலும் கடலாய்க் கிடந்த
பெருநிலத்தின் பெயரென்ன அத்தான்?

நாவலந் தீவென நவிலுவார் கண்ணே!
தீவின் நடுவில் நாவல் மரங்கள்
