fortunate discoveries by accident

Apple iPad and ebook pricing – disappointing!

Fri, 05 Feb 2010 18:17:51 +0000

Apple recently announced another great design achivement with their launch of iPad. I clearly am a fan of Apple’s design skills. I am also impressed at the way Apple has ramped up their Supply Chain – recently a global study mentioned them to be one of the world’s best. While they have a rather straight forward portfolio of products, the speed with which they evolve their products – it is impressive. But where I have issue with Apple is the way they treat their customers – esp. the early more

Globalisation – is it really a new concept? And if not what should we learn from the past?

Sun, 15 Nov 2009 01:04:08 +0000

I am just about to finish reading a rather interesting book about the history of Samurai (The Religion of the Samurai – A Study of Zen Philosophy and Discipline in China and Japan by Kaiten Nukariya.) It talks about how Buddhism reached China and Japan from India few 1000s year before. How Indian texts were translated to Chinese and then to Japanese and how the original Indian philosophy behind Buddhism was adapted by incorporating Taoism and Confucius philosophy. The only aspect of various forms of Buddhism including Zen that more

Innovation in Career Management from UpMo

I recently came across this website called UpMo that helps develop a road map for managing ones career and tells how to get there.

Children Out of Sight, Out of Mind, Out of Reach

Thu, 23 Nov 2006 17:08:36 +0000

The latest State of the World’s Children report by UNICEF has been released. Below is the press release from last month. (You can find previous years’ reports at here.) Abused and Neglected, Millions of Children Have Become Virtually Invisible LONDON, 14 December 2005. Hundreds of millions of children are suffering from severe exploitation and discrimination and have become virtually invisible to the world, UNICEF said today in a major report that explores the causes of exclusion and the abuses children experience. The agency said that millions of children disappear more

Fasnacht Diary from Basel

Wed, 08 Nov 2006 08:46:07 +0000

Nick from Basel who is an active Fasnachter this year has written a diary about his experience. I found it very good read – especially as it gave insights to the fun that Fasnachters themselves have. I was lucky myself to participate in a Fasnacht – with costumes and all – though not here in Basel. It was in and around Winterthur, near Zurich in 2001! I hope to upload some of my own Fasnacht photographs soon.

Reservation and the real problem

Thu, 08 Jun 2006 12:23:58 +0000

The story about the reservation saga continues in India. I am sure this will also whimper down like the Mandal Commission protest in 1991. The problem is that there is a problem in India – and we are no where near a solution. Neither having reservation nor not having them will solve. While I personally am against the concept of using special coaching for preparing for entrance examinations (and I did not use them for my preparations for my Engineering entrance!) the following story – forwarded to me by more

A great interview.

Tue, 30 May 2006 13:50:03 +0000

For the second time in less than two decades India is having the great reservation debate. While no one questions the merits of the need to solve problems faced by the underprivileged in India, I personally do question the case for having reservations in the format it exists today. But more than the debate itself, I was impressed at how much better India is as a performing democracy. Whether you like Arjun Singh or not, I can’t imagine an interview like the one below happening for example in USA. It more

Remembering Shakti – Left me wanting more

Sun, 26 Mar 2006 13:00:15 +0000

Yesterday night I attended concert by Shakti at the Basel Stadt Casino – with John McLaughlin (guitar), Zakir Hussain (tabla), U. Srinivas (mandolin), Selvaganesh (mridangam, ghata and kanjira) and Shankar Mahadevan (vocals). It was a very good fusion music evening. Indian classical music (both Hindustani and Carnatic) sounds packaged in a jazz concert style. The greatness of the musicians were quite obvious in the manner in which blended it all together. Perhaps I was expecting a huge lot more from the Maestros, the concert left me feeling a bit more

Bright idea offers hope for drinking water

Sun, 26 Mar 2006 12:28:16 +0000

Swiss researchers have developed a biosensor that lights up when it detects arsenic, and have successfully tested it in drinking water in Vietnam. The award-winning breakthrough could improve the lives of millions worldwide who face serious health problems caused by drinking arsenic-contaminated water. Read more here

The growing influence of English as a foreign language

Mon, 20 Feb 2006 16:43:36 +0000

(and the reduced influence of English as a native language) The British Council has come up with an interesting report on the future of English. Here is the list of major languages used around the world today. No surprises for guessing with comes out on top. But if you look at the number of countries that speak each language the results could be quite different. Also perhaps based on each dollar of GDP around the world. Below is a list Done pea-sized.

The coming of internalised Superpowers

Fri, 17 Feb 2006 21:33:55 +0000

China and India are the most talked about emerging economies of the world today. China is already the second largest economy in terms of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) and India is close to edging out Japan to be number three. And US, despite the continuing financial growth, is not seeing much change when it comes to the purchasing power of its common citizens. This is quite an interesting development. Most western economies today as is China to an extent today is based heavily on cross border trade. US perhaps more

Getting up early!

Sun, 12 Feb 2006 22:24:29 +0000

Steve Pavlina has written a very good article on getting up early. He says: ……The solution was to go to bed when I’m sleepy (and only when I’m sleepy) and get up with an alarm clock at a fixed time (7 days per week). So I always get up at the same time (in my case 5am), but I go to bed at different times every night…… The original is very clear straight forward. Steve also has an updated Part II where he details some more about the approach. more

In pictures: Papua’s ‘lost world’

Wed, 08 Feb 2006 19:53:05 +0000

Update: While still quite an interesting find, the whole thing was hyped up. It seems this place was found quite a long time back by some other scientists and now the team was just revisiting the same place. I wonder why even prominent players too take such incredibly stupid steps!

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, to discover that I had not lived. — Henry David Thoreau
