A very good ad indeed!!

Would Roark blog?

If blogging was available for Howard Roark, would he ever blog? I doubt if he'd ever.

Before I go ahead, let me introduce Mr. Howard Roark ( Would Roark bother to be introduced :) .
Howard Roark is the main character, in the novel The Fountain Head by And Ryan. He led life in his own terms. Though I have read the novel only once, and that too I found the novel interesting only during the midst of the course, rather than from the beginning itself, Iam putting forth my opinion on Roark based on what I understood..

Blogging is an activity that caught up with me, though not with full fervor but atleast at a medium pace, and Iam trying to see about this activity from Roark's perspective, who gave a damn about what others thought or what others would perceive about him.

But blogging in itself is an activity which speaks about sharing one's thoughts. Hmm...am I correct in this definition. Blogging is an activity in which people try to share one's thoughts in order to convince hi…

Demographic constitution, boon or a bane?

"Too much of anything is good for nothing.” isn't it?

So, are we excess in population or can India still support the burgeoning population growth? If we are in excess, then as per the above saying, it should be a bane rather than a boon.

But, nowadays, why are we boasting about it? Because, everyone is speaking about the demographic constitution of our population. As of today, around 30-40% of our population is around the 30 years of age which happens to be the best for any working group. And if the same growth trend continues the same demography is going to become 50%, i.e. 50% of our population would around the age of 25-30.

Imagine the numbers!! By 2050, if the same growth trend continues, the population would certainly reach the figure of around 2 billion. And hence there will be around 1 billion people ready to jump upon the work. Everyone understands the benefits of it, as India is poised to become the biggest market with huge opportunities onboard.

At the same time, with…

Indian IT services ..Booming or "Boom" ing

Guess the number of people the Indian IT services companies are going to recruit in this fiscal...I DONT KNOW :)... Actually they are going to recruit around 50,000 to 100,000 people in this fiscal year.

And if one looks at the profits of this sector... mind blowing would be a word undermining their performance. A quarter on quarter icnrease of around 45 % even for the companies whose revenues have already crossed the 1 billion $ mark.

So, what should stop me from saying that the sector is growing.

But, should growth be only short liven or should be a sustained one. Though the growth rate has to be maintained at every step, I understand that the short term growth rate can be compromised, but never the long run growth rate.

But, is our industry implementing the same principle. Are all the new companies that are budding, the ones which can make a change in the whole product range, or they only add more to the existing lineup.

History itself shows that only people/companies which have implem…

Power crisis solves power crisis!!

Hey...This blog is not about today's topple of Sheila Deekshit in New Delhi, and the power crisis of Congress. Nor is it about the lack of power of chappell to enforce things( whatever be those things!!).

This friends, Iam speaking about, is about the real "power" crisis.

Now, do not ask me... define power, but in layman i.e. in my terms it is what all of us need to survive nowadays. Days may not be far away, when indirect sources of energy may substitute the food consumption...( What a brilliant idea!! :)...

Nevertheless the reality bites the dust. AP, my own state is reiling under power crisis, not that the u\other states are faring better. IN fact AP is the better of the worse. Just have a look at the survey done by differnt organizations across the country... http://powermin.nic.in/JSP_SERVLETS/internal.jsp

Our locality in Hyderabad, already faces 4 hours of power cut. And, this is going to increase to 6 hours. This, inspite of one of the best years of Monsoon. But, alas…
