Sunil, how are you doing? Long time since our last discussion. I was following the Mumbai Attack and had in my mind to talk with you about the future: what happens after this? I wrote in my blog Visual Raido "Can technology fix India's problems?"
I've been following India and Southeast Asia more closely after the Mumbai Attack. India with its big population has both great possibilities in the future, but at the same time, there are huge social and internal security problems that have to be addressed properly and fixed. Below is a short story about one possible problem solver.
I borrowed his picture from Wikipedia. There is also some background information about "the problem solver" copy pasted from Wikipedia.
Technology can fix India's problems, says Mr. Nandan Nilekani in an IPTV interview for IBNLIVE webcast television.
The entrepreneur Nandan Nileakni has authored a book Imaging India. He is painting a dream for the dream of the future. He wants to be problem solver.
What do you think?
India is a great nation. Here is a very interesting video.
(Oct 03, 2008) I'm going to India for three weeks. I'll be back the day before the Silicon Valey Recruiting Roadshow. My goal is to immerse myself in Indian culture. I want to understand the foundations of the people who are becoming my partners with increasing frequency.
While we are busy putting tons of business in Indian outsourcing shops, we are doing relatively little to manage it effectively. Even here, on RecruitingBlogs.com, there is little in the way of dialog about cultural difference and what it takes to be productive. We tiptoe around questions of language, culture and business practice.
When I say "we", I mean it in the most collective way possible. Western firms spend little real time in the culture of our Asian business partners. For the relationships to work over the long haul, there has to be much more than a labor arbitrage.
