Creating a future ready Workforce ………….

Will my CEO go back to school too? In June 2016, the CEO and founder of a start-up venture that worked on eliminating middlemen from the supply chain for agricultural produce joined the 2016/18 batch of the PGPM course at MDI Gurgaon. The course, he felt, would arm him with marketing and cash flow management skills for his start-up, apart from a B-school network. Around the same time, another entrepreneur and co-founder of a food

A Bond that Does’nt Age

A Bond that Does’nt Age

As the car swerved uphill and stopped with a jerk, I got out nervous, yet hopeful.I was going to meet my literary mentor, whom, to put it euphemistically, I adored, Ekalavya-like.I was early by 30 minutes, but Bina, daughter-in-law of his adopted family welcomed me.I stood before him, gaze downcast and tongue-tied. I opened my suitcase, half the contents were for him-i literally knelt at his feet and offered him blue(his favorite color) socks, blue

The third part will be the background, history and Macro-Economic Framework analysis, which has been my standard approach in studying the budget. And my first impression of this budget was listening to it / reading

Indian Election Slogans – Galli Galli Mein Shor Hain

Indian Election Slogans – Galli Galli Mein Shor Hain

  Galli Galli Mein shor hai……. The noise from a Morcha( protest rally)  on the small and quiet lane next to my house in Thane woke me up.  Yes, there are still some places in a city like Thane which sport a deserted look during the afternoons. Curiosity and anger saw me peeping out of the window of my bedroom. I could easily recognize the so-called social workers(?) from my area shouting slogans against one

The Supreme Religion

There has been growing religious intolerance in India which is a matter of high concern. It’s more of an issue about self-expression but I’ll stick to the religious front for now. So, as you can tell by the title of the post, I am going to be talking about my religion and I know that it is the most righteous and supreme religion there is. Let the judging begin! First, let’s understand religion. A religion is an

Many Religions One India

Many Religions One India

Witten by: Deepthi Musley Unity in diversity, All for one & One for all, United we stand divided we fall. A country of the people, by the people, & for the people at the heart of nationality is yet to identify itself with the true meaning of freedom even after seventy years of independence. Our motherland has never isolated her children as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Jains, etc., & neither did she cut & offer

Humanity First

These are times when India is facing a bit more number of threats to its sovereignty than we’re probably used to. At least as far as my knowledge goes, I haven’t seen the media report Chinese and Pakistani incursions or any other threats from these countries at the same time. Also, the internal security challenges aren’t on the decline either. It’s as though we’re disintegrating, we’re recognizing our differences but these external threats are keeping us somehow weakly glued. I recently read in an article the divide between Hindus and Muslims, North Indians and South Indians and between other social groups is increasing. The ‘Unity in Diversity’ has been remained to a bookish phrase. Is this a problem? I say yes. Is there a solution? Yes, but trying to forget our differences and suddenly unite won’t help. It will never even happen. If the branches start to dry up, perhaps the roots need to be diagnosed.

We miss Varaaha

Past writers didn’t have the opportunity to what’sapp or blog, like we do. What came to light is only a small percentage of their achievement. Keeping this in mind, I’ve decided to begin by introducing the creations of handcraftist-cum-author-cum-cartoonist T R Varaaha Murthy.   We witness many Varaaha inspired writers and cartoonists in Karnataka. There is no scarcity of folk art followers, who often used to sing and dance with Varaaha. Followers preserve Varaaha sculptures

Din Over Diwali

Din Over Diwali

What’s all this hue and cry over Diwali crackers. If people wish to celebrate the festival of lights with luminous and loud crackers so be it. The popular argument is that pollution levels shoot up and this leads to very high numbers of people falling sick. That is certainly a valid and well proven case which is why what the need of the hour is giving the masses an alternative. There are numerous examples or
