India to witness job downpour?


Only two days back I got talking to two of my friends from the banking industry about the RBI policies and the opening of the banking sector in 2009. And the possible M&A between Barclays and ABN Amro makes headlines today. It’s a good move by Barclays to enter the market and be visible for next two years before the sector opens up in April 2009. Current policy by RBI doesn’t allow any new entrant to get into retail business without having a rural presence. A bank like Barclays, one of the largest financial services company from UK would possibly not want to dilute it image by entering the rural market at this point in time.


Yeah…its Value for Money (VFM) and Value for Time (VFT) for the recent 3 movies I watched on the big screen. Offbeat and refreshing parallel cinema.

Waiting On The World To Change


On my way to office today I was listening to Radio indigo when they played John Mayer’s ‘Waiting on the world to change’, Grammy winning first single released from John Mayer’s 2006 studio album, Continuum.

Being the philosophical me, I got thinking yet again….Well, you cannot change the world around you or the way things function. Not always will things move at the pace you would like. There are times one gets bogged and frustrated. But atleast you are in your control. I would rather look around than wanting to change the world!

Why renewables?



From a technology company where everyday all I heard was something related to coding, software, security et all to a renewable energy company, where each day what I hear is subjects like sustainable development, environment, non conventional sources of energy, systems…. it has been an interesting transition from a software company to SunTechnics.

I have been reading about the energy sector and thought would share my views…

We all dream of being citizens of a self sufficient country. We felt proud on going nuclear. But, as far as energy scenario in India is concerned, there is a long way to go.

Reinventing thyself


15th April, 07, its Vishu today, a day signifying advent of New Year. As I sit in my apartment, there are people around yet I am lost in the labyrinth of what I can call my own world of thoughts.

I am forced to write about what I am thinking right now. It’s about reinventing the self. So many times it happens that one gets caught in the rigmarole of the daily life and loose out on the perspective. Perspective of living. The bigger calling, I would call it. Sometimes a need arises to stop and introspect. Steer the way back to course.

Year bygone..


It’s my birthday today and amidst numerous phone calls I sit reminiscing over the year bygone. A year eventful with memories   good and bad. No matter how inconsequential, instrumental in making the ‘me’ as I stand today. Wait…am I getting all  philosophical? Cos I have no intentions to! Birthdays are just way of telling you that though you are getting wiser but it necessarily doesn’t mean that you have to act one 😉
