tech jobs sell in MNCs!

tech jobs sell in MNCs!

Recently, I met a guy, who was holding B.Tech degree (Bechlore’s in echnology) and was applying for Customer Care job in local BPO company. I asked him why he was going for the BPO job, they offer no more than $150 a month and the job requires at least 9 hours of sitting work, 6 days a week. I asked him why didn’t he applied for Engineer’s post in some good company?

Most companies offer around 8000-10,000 per annum of salary package to Engineering graduate. He replied with sad looks on his face. He said, that he had been to a couple of interviews and jobs are being sold for 50% of the salary package associated with the post. He said one HR asked him to pay 1.5 lakh for job offer. He said he comes from poor family and couldn’t arrange money, but his friend was able to pay for that offer. His friend is now working at Rs.3 lakh ( $8000+ approx.) annual salary. I told him , its for the first time, I have heard such thing and its hard to believe that such is the picture of corruption among corporate world. My skepticism was cleared by a recent news on TV, about the HRs selling jobs in companies. People here in India can be heard saying, “From academic degrees to jobs, from office peon to state minister, everything sells in India. You just need money to buy them.” This is the state of corruption in India. One guy satirically said that’s why US or Australian colleges don’t value our degrees. One has to clear different test to prove your eligibility for entrance to education or getting jobs there.

TATA NANO car : Nothing wrong Buy with confidence!!

Its all just a bad propaganda against Tata Nano.
TATA NANO car Nothing wrong Buy with confidence!!
If Mr. Tata is genuinely dedicated to provide Nano car (??? over his Rs.3 Lakh priced Indica Vista) to Indian car buyers, there should not be any point to worry. (To provide cheaper products over high priced popular and hot selling products, sometimes becomes unviable business. That is why, I was skeptic before Nano’s launch, but now Nano owners should pressurize Mr. Tata to walk firmly on his promise.)

With recent news about declined sales of Tata NANO car, it seems the car on fire propaganda has imbibed fear among small car buyers. Its not just nano, every car in busy city traffic of Delhi or Mumbai like metro cities is at risk of catching fire. Its just a matter of driving style. It you are applying brakes every few seconds the engine will heat up and there will be more chances of engine catching fire. See the news video posted here below, even Suzuki’s Swift caught fire and I have seen cars of different class and brand catching fire.

Tip: In India people generally are not that aware about car safety. You will find people traveling without first aid box, Tyre jack & tools, spare wheel and most does not even care for a small fire extinguisher. Small fire extinguisher costs around Rs.250 to 300 and ISI marked genuine FEs are easily available in auto showrooms. A portable fire extinguisher comes handy in event of fire, which can happen due to either short circuit sparking or loosely left cigarette bud etc. One must keep at least a First aid box and a handy Fire Extinguisher.

I must say, those who spent two lakh Rupees on low grade M800 were really idiots. Tata Nano is no ordinary car. Consider the fact while in comparison to contemporary small cars, M800 was way old technology car and not worth Rs.2 Lakh.
As much as I know, Tata nano’s Engine design is from Porsche R&D. Porsche is among world leaders in Automobile industry and they specialise in rear wheel engines. Most design is state of the art and is from Korea’s Daewoo R&D. Surely there are some points to consider when you plan to buy a new small car for your family.
Tata nano is compact City car.
It has efficient fule average it gives around 18-21 KMPL.
Tata nano takes very little parking space and moves easily in jam packed parking areas.
High raised seats give ample view of traffic on road.
Well designed even for tall people.
Driving is easy and pleasure.
Lightweight and Elegant design.
Nano is a car for young urban guys and gals.
Car for working Women with kids.
It lacks boot space for people who like to travel with big luggage.

Life in India : Medical Ethics Hit new low

Indian doctors may have a better reputation in USA but in India the medical profession has lost its noble stature in society. Every now and then, we hear and see news about doctors being thrashed and manhandled by the kin of the patients for medical negligence and greedy behaviour. In a recent incident at General Hospital, Sector 16, Chandigarh, a pregnant lady from poor class of the area was infused with wrong blood group. It proved foeticidal for her unborn one and now she is suffering with acute renal infection. The root cause of this situation is the greedy minds and ambitions of their parents and peer group of these medical professionals. Now a days, the term in fashion is “Health Care Industry” which used to be “Health Care Services” before India Growth happened. Corporates have taken over hospitals and are making profits in nexus with Pharmaceutical industry.
Those were the days, way back in early Eighties (in my childhood days) when I saw a doctor hushing away a medical representative, from his clinic and warning him not to approach his clinic for pharmaceutical recommendations and favors. These days its a totally different story. Private practitioners have a regular and fixed financial favours from pharmaceutical companies for recommending their brands to patients and which results in increased sales. The irony of time is this norm has become a marketing strategy and “doctors” are comfortable with this. “Who don’t like Free money?”. From politicians to peon everybody is busy in cash munching. I really wonder how come KBC flopped this time? I think people are over bored with win money shows or they are with Mr. Amitabh.

Life in India : Medical Ethics Hit another new low

Mr. Obama recently tagged our nation as “India has already risen” an saluted with “Jai Hind”. I must say, I am not sure its a praise of a friendly country or just a satire? We Indians love America and American way of life and there is no doubt about it. Now every wants to live lavish life style like big tycoons of USA. People surf through web for home decor and furniture styles, young guys want to copy “emo style” (don’t know exactly whats that? some say its gayism). BMWs, Mercs and Audi cars rule Indian car segment. The most commonly viewed change is the vulgar pointed finger stickers on bikes which has become like a religious symbol among urban youth as if they feel retard in its absence. A recent report from Swiss Bank claims that they have so much Indian black money in their banks that if its sent back to India, there will be no need to levy any tax on Indian public for a decade.

So this spiritual Sixth Sense comes out correct every time. What’s more I can offer? Do I have solutions to benefit this world and save lives? Can I ?

Frequent Seismic Waves this Week. Is Major Earthquake knocking?

Since last 14-15 days, I have been frequently experiencing Seismic waves of moderate intensity. Checkout my tweets. Mostly the direction of these seismic waves is from West (40 degrees in North) towards South (20 degrees in East). The previous 6th Sense Seismic logs resulted in Arkansas and Oklahoma (USA) Earthquakes. This frequent occurrence of seismic tremors makes me believe that a major Earthquake is knocking at us and it is going to be in Northern West of globe (w.r.t 30.713890, 76.712012). May be Iran, Italy or western Russia? Or Hindukush in Afghanstan and Kashmir in India? With recent earthquake in Oklahoma, USA there could be re-occurrence of earthquakes in California and Oklahoma.

Step 2. right click on network connection icon on taskbar and select properties.
Step 3. Click on details tab and look for Network Default Gateway ip.
On windows system most commonly it is 192.168.1.1
Step 4. Open IE or any other internet browser you use to surf web space.
Step 5. type in Address bar 192.168.1.1 and pess enter.
Step 6. A new window will open asking for user name and password. Type in admin and password in it and click OK. A page will open with your wifi router’s logo on it. This is your wifi router’s configuration page.
