Mar. 2nd, 2010 12:41 pm Rural BPO Setup - Update


Just thought to post before everyone thinks that I am dead.. :P

Had been really really busy over the past few months.
The rural BPO which I spoke about - some time ago, is all set and functioning.

Its set up in the most backward taluk of Pavagada ( in Karnataka )
It employs 100 people & hence directly supports 100 families in the taluk.
From the past 2 months, they are undergoing training on English, Basic Computer operations and Typing.

The employees are hired based on their financial background & their interest to learn & work.
The employee crowd includes 65% of females and over 70% belong to the backward community.
Physically challenged people are in the set too.

More details here : www.villit.com

We are looking for some data processing projects, to sustain the unit and hence if you happen to know any clients who would need such services, please give me a buzz.
if you need a copy of the brochure - please do let me know.

Need support & encouragement from you all.

Nov. 26th, 2009 04:36 pm Youth kills himself over Google Wave


I know Google Wave is going to be bigger than anything else on
internet. And being unable to understand its features fully, I feel like a loser and find myself unworthy of this life. I simply cannot show this miserable countenance to my friends and family. Thus I fully own the responsibility of ending my life and hope to be reborn with a brain fully compatible with Google Wave,” the note reads..

Nov. 24th, 2009 03:00 pm A date to remember

Its exactly been a year since I came back to India.
I have enjoyed every moment here thoroughly, not a single minuscule of repentance about my decision to come back by leaving a permanent job in the US.

This has been one of the fastest year in my life.
The previous year - a one year stint in the US made me realize the difference between LIVING & Surviving. It taught me how to value those teeny tiny things which adds more value to my life.
Making it more meaningful & enjoyable.

The post would be incomplete without mentioning some things in the US which I do miss:- The good wide roads, the smooth traffic, the high speed internet and the huge pacific ocean which was just 7 miles away from my apartment.

More later..

Oct. 21st, 2009 02:30 pm Hello

Was away from LJ for quite some time now.
Been busy.
Life has been going smooth, got into quite a few activities.

Some to just kill time & some which will have a good positive impact on quite a few rural literates.
Will update more on this shortly.

Belated Diwali wishes to you all.
Cheers!

Aug. 11th, 2009 12:52 pm Incredible India


So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature,
to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.
-----------------------------------------------------


Its nothing new that me & a couple of my friends talk about going abroad on a trip.
Most of my friends gang have seen some part of the foreign countries & still want to see more of it.
I guess most of us do, don't we ?

Just happened to watch this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNWeBVBqo2c

Felt that a lot of India itself is unexplored by me, a lot to see, feel, celebrate & cherish..  :)


Cheeers !!

Aug. 9th, 2009 05:40 pm Got to change my weekend routine


“Change is the essence of life.Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become”
-----------------------------------------------------------------


Have not been socializing much these days for "whatever" reasons.
Weekends I spend at home, watching TV, or some movie on the laptop and sleep a lot ofcourse.

Sleeping was a part of my weekends always, but evening & noons - I used to be more active..

Been a while since I met quite a lot of friends.
Got to change myself & my useless routine.  Serves no point to anyone.

Change is definitely around the corner !!

Jun. 21st, 2009 01:04 am One More Round Done

Glowing Old is Mandatory, Growing up is Not
----------------------------------------

One more circle around the sun completes today..
I am not growing older, This is just another anniversary of me turning 18..  :P   lol
Its been a good year.. Couple of my missions were accomplished..
Some failed, some crashed too, but overall - a good year..

Not many things framed for this coming year yet, but learning to swim is in the top of the list.
Another thing is to register myself to "Donating my Eyes", So that when I die, someone gets a chance to see how beautiful this world is..  :)

Btw, did you know that today is the longest day of the year [ Day is longer than the night ],
So - effectively mine is the longest Birth"Day".. Yay!   :)
