Nitish's Bihar: From goonda raj to vikas raj

Nitish's Bihar: From goonda raj to vikas raj

Hail Nitish. He is a techno-politician and proved many people wrong about Patna and Bihar politics. Yes, it is a wonderful shift from Goonda Raj to Vikas (Development) Raj. I am sure Biharis world over must be rejoicing and celebrating this development. No Lalu, no Rahul, no Paswan or no Maoists could stop BJP-JD (U) to come back to power with thumping numbers. Stability, Peace, Progress and Development should usher in the once-famous Nalanda land blessed with River Ganges. All Biharis would raise their heads with pride and work.

Loan scam: LIC Housing CEO arrested

Loan scam: LIC Housing CEO arrested

What a shame? At a time when India is moving forward in Cricket, Economy, and looking for a Seat in UNSC, back home, everyday a new Scam is surfacing. There are innumerable scams all around. Be it in business, telecom, housing, sports, banking, police or defence, Oh!

It is sickening for the new generation of the twenty-first century to know about all these scams by Judges, Ministers, Bankers, Soldiers, Politicians, Sportsmen and so on .... one after the other. The figures and facts are mind-boggling and frustrating for a sincere, honest, intelligent and dedicated citizen. Where is the end? Corruption and Fraud are spreading like virus or cancer in all fields.

May be the Government of India should think of instituting awards at national and state levels. I suggest that we may think of Scam Ratna, Scam-Bhushan, Scam-Vibhushan, Scam-Sri, etc for these achievers and hang them publicly. Some times, I wonder - do we deserve democracy? Whether our Constitution is so dumb? Why do our Parliamentarians and Legislators promise something, take oath on something else and then carry out their nefarious activities? God save India. Mera Bharath Mahaan. Jai Hind. Jai Ho. Vande Matharam.

Ratan Tata takes part in Sai Baba 85th b'day celebrations

Ratan Tata takes part in Sai Baba 85th b'day celebrations

God has been kind to the generation to have given such a long life to Bhagawan Sri Sri Sri Satya Sai Baba. He has not only been rendering service to his surroundings on religion and life, but also to the entire world in extending social service by providing transport (rail, road, airport, etc), education (University and Schools), health (Hospital), sports (stadium), water (project in Ananthapur dist) and general boost to the economy of Puttaparthi (Prasanthi Nilayam).

Visits by Politicians, Bureaucrats, Businessmen, Foreigners, etc will vouch the good work of Sri Sai Baba. Ratan Tata is certainly an exceptional personality with proven track record in his business career. His visit to Sai will vouch the genuine seva being done there. Long live Sri Satya Sai Baba. Om Sai Raam.

President's visit to TAPMI campus on 9th Dec

TAPMI's new campus is changing fast and getting ready to receive the President of India on Dec 09, 2010 for a formal inauguration.  The 42-acre modern residential campus is getting the final touch ups besides the surrounding like approach road being widened.  In the past one and half years, TAPMI and TAPMIans have witnessed several events, achievements, dignitaries and recognitions with top-speed.

India Infoline included in the B-Schools page all the recent developments at TAPMI.  Many more things are in the offing to make the twenty-six years old Management Institute to scale new heights.

BrandScan 2010 concludes on a successful note at TAPMI

The eighteenth BrandScan turned the event to greater heights for TAPMI, Manipal.  The time tested and successful annual market research fair has in the past eighteen years, seen over 200 projects for study.  It is an unusual off-class room learning experience for the students of PGDM.  While the senior students (2nd year) carry out the project, the juniors do understudy and assist their seniors and also learn the nitty gritties.

Unlike last year, the event was not affected by rains in the region.  The two day events were well organised with adequate turnout respondents for the research work.  Interestingly, the second day happened to be Sunday cum Children's Day which brought nearly five hundred participants accompanied by their parents to take part in the events.  Four Journalists were also specially brought in by TAPMI - Mr Vinayak of BL-Mangalore, Mr Robin of BI-Goa, Mr Dennes of NIE-Chennai and Ms Deepal Gala of TOI-Hyderabad.  In addition, local correspondents also actively covered the events in the news papers.

Mr Vinayak released his story in the Business Line under "The New Manager" quoting me and Prof Gururaj. Not Just a Fun Fair in Business Line of 22nd Nov 2010

Delhi Metro going public!

News is that Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is going public soon. Its CEO Mr E Sridharan deserves all the credit for laying the Konkan Railway between Mangalore and Mumbai as a Private Railway Corporation. 

Mr Sridharan is a special person; a technocrat turned professional who is contributing to the progressive India. An Engineer par excellence; honest, sincere and committed top executive; a role model to emulate.  Can we call him Father of Metrolines or Transportation in India? Not enough, he should be considered for awarding next Bharat Ratna honour by Government of India.
