Why are most Indian’s so ungrateful to the Ambani family ?

Its a general trend these days to consider Tata’s as epitome of business ethics and refer Ambani’s as shrewd unethical business men.

Really ? Such ungratefulness indeed !

When Ford, Boeing, IBM etc were innovating elsewhere, in India, these elite business houses where happily milking and fostering an uninteresting third world economy.

Which was the last Operating System or search engine made and popularised by the TCS, may I ask ?

Indians saw mobile in commoners hands some 20 years before when the Reliance of Ambani made it possible.

Indian’s could afford internet irrespective of class and geography because few years before the Ambanis made it possible.

Many Indian digital startups flourish due to the digital infrastructure made available by the Ambanis.

Really are the Indian’s lacking a moral compass or basic intelligence ? Or are they just jealous ? Is there a general slave attitude here which cannot digest the sight of ordinary men building huge business empires and competing with the traditional elites ? A mild Stockholm syndrome may be.

The hate from extremists in certain communities is very much visible and understandable too, as they don’t like successful businessmen who are also devout Hindus.

But whats wrong with the new age vogue liberals of India ? Whats their grudge with the Ambanis ?

Really it seems that the country is still third world because of the selfish biases of most of its citizens.

Wheres my mind wandering..?

Where are am I wandering. Why can’t the mind stay still ?

So much does my mind wander that I just noticed I couldn’t even remember the way I’m taking via my taxi ride, every single time.

Can’t let this go on for ever unnoticed. Will be capturing my thoughts now.

Random musings ? So be it. Every little thing, need to be documented.

May be that’s going to help. Or may by that will produce some amusing reads.

Lets see.

India’s beautification task force ( imaginary of course )

When we travel via our roads, one thing is very visible – most of our roads are ugly !

Really, really ugly.

Almost all of them have the left over inventories from the times they were built, dirt, and broken pavements.

With so many unemployed youth around, whats stops our Govt to create a reconstruction or beautification army with the sole purpose of making every inch of our road infrastructure beautiful and finished ? Expand the related industries and provide more jobs there too.

Like would it hurt if every main road had a lining of decorative plants on either sides, adjacent to fine and finished pavements ? Add some nice sculptures too every one kilometre and living here would be would become a pleasing experience !

Really, we have the raw materials and humans in abundance, what stops the sick buggers in the Govt (financial departments mainly) to produce enough money and mobilise our unemployed youth ! Should have done this decades before.

The newest trick with Bengaluru’s Autorickshaw drivers

Tough times force people to innovate their ways.

The dacoits acting as Rickshaw drivers during the day in Bengaluru, (or atleast thats the way one would think of them if one interacts with them), have done the same.

These days they tell you upfront that they will take you to your destination by the meter !

Surprised ? So was I.

Got into a rickshaw wooed so by one religious looking guy with this upfront offer to be fair on the fare!

Of course by the time I reached home it was clear that the Meter travels thrice as fast as the rickshaw itself.

Appreciated the guy for this innovation and thinking differently from their traditional fraudulent ways.

Somehow still managed to fix the final amount to a median between the heavenly meter fare and the right fare by acting tough.

Not again.

Hashrange.com – from excitement to lack thereof

Was planning to put to use my older laptops, and I’ve got four of them – to good use. This notion of just being on a website which does crypto mining using javascript sounded exciting, as the starting overhead is practically zero !

Yes so created an account in hashrange.com and starting mining on all four laptops. That was quick and easy !

It was great during the first hour, there were steady increases in my tiny fractional balance of BTC in the wallet, shown in some very well designed page.

After the first hour, for some reason my wallet balance was not increasing. I checked laptop after laptop, the mining was going ahead as usual and CPU usage on each of them were just a heavy as before.

Not so exciting.

But hey, there’s more. While chatting with a customer executive of Hashrange about this, I could see my balance revert to a previous value right before me !

That was it. I could notice the difference because I had noted down the exact numbers just to measure the gains per hour, and was closely watching.

Needless to say, I was out of it after this misadventure which lasted for a good couple of hours. Phew.. !
