Education & Reservations

Recently Atanu has a beautiful post on this issue that supply is the major problem. On a similar note, in regards of higher eduation, Satya compares this scenario with Indian telecom revolution and food sector experience.

I too believe on similar lines. Otherwise, why chattisgarh could come up with "40 private universities" in a span of very short time. I accept that, they were under quality institutes but then when the number increases, then quality would become the major issue. Which essentially mean: people want as many as institutes to come-up and they are ready to pay for quality education.

And then, in regards of primary education, Kerala did good things by increasing competetion by giving straightly scholarships to children, and subsidy in transport. Even in the case of primary education, poor ready to spend money.

Coming to Atanu's mantra that we should be concerned about causes not the symptoms: in the case of today's medical system as well, we are always very much bothered about symptoms but not the causes. On a surprising note, we prefer this and dont prefer ayurvedic system which chases the causes. Is this due to mass psyche?

Experiments on Myself : 1

I usually experiment on myself on several issues: I started to document them,
  • Though often materialistic desires do take me a ride into their net but then when I take back for a while, as usual, eternal happiness has its last laugh along with me.
  • Formula for winning over greed : "My principle of" unwilling to do things which one loves to & can.
  • To be happy when you are in trouble is by getting yourself "willingly" into a bigger trouble for which you have a solution
  • To enjoy any situation, willingly face (or rather practice) both the extremes
  • Relations don't happen, they are built over time, sometimes knowingly and at times unknowingly.
  • Ethics are the focal to a character of a person

Certified IT security professionals : dearth of talent

India is facing severe dearth of talent in IT security industry. Industry require people with CISSP/ CISA/CISM certification and good technical background. They seek people who would like to pick-up new technologies quickly (basically smart guys). India Inc is ready to pay very high pay package. By chance if you know anyone out there, let me know (malapati g mail).

Showing stock market quotes .. Good business for billboards!

When I used to be at chennai and pass through Mount road I definitely look for temperature billboard, near hindu office. Because, in most cases I used to be stuck in traffic jam & had to kill the time.

So, keeping a small display box inside a billboard & displaying "Stock Market quotes" on it could be a good idea. That makes people to keep attention over billboard & as well as stock quotes, while passing over traffic jam.

How to bypass the "subscription" services of Online Newspapers & Magazines

Usually many news articles are available just for subscriber alone. But then, in most cases you can get those articles if they are of high value.


I assume, you have preview content of the article that you wish to read. Take a sentence out of that (keep this sentence in quotes) and search in blogsearch engines (for example, http://blogsearch.google.com/). Got it ??!!

(Note : This is a small piece of my book on Google Search (specific to Indian context). For more detailed explanation, on same topic or otherwise, you will have to wait for my book!)
