The Sandalwood Stench

Once there lived a great king in a big palace.  One morning as he was standing in his palatial balcony admiring the morning rays falling on his beautifully landscaped gardens, his vision was marred by the sighting of an ugly dwelling protruding behind the walls of his eastern boundary walls.  Immediately, he dispatched his minister with the instructions(..)

The Unhidden Potential

Here is a page from the dairy of two guys who shared the same last name—Mr. Percentile.  One of them was very intelligent; his name was Mr. Ninety Percentile.  The second was just an ordinary man; his name was Mr. Ten Percentile.  Now, Ninety wanted to make some quick bucks and lured Ten into a bet.  The bet proposition was that each of them would ask(..)

The Wonder Years

Calendar year 2010 marked the end of sixteen years of operations for Cybage. If there was a presiding jury, I am sure that the unanimous verdict on our "sweet sixteen” performance would come out as “box office hit”. Cybage pinnacles of success have been elegantly chronicled over the years on(..)

The Inescapable Whirlpool

“Rahul.  Naam to suna hoga”!  Of course.  After all, there are 41 Rahuls in Cybage today.  In fact, the very first Cybagian’s name was Rahul too!  But there is a difference here.  This Rahul that I am referring to is not a Cybagian.  Not yet.   But this will change very soon.  And why shouldn’t it?  Look at his determination-- Stalking(..)

The Healthy Calling

Being health conscious has an optional flavor in our country.  In western countries, staying healthy is an integral part of daily living.  My first stint in becoming health conscious started during my MS days in USA. Motivation? Everyone around me looked fit, so I decided to get in shape, look and feel good about myself, and merge with the crowd.  But I(..)

The True Colors

Last week, I saw a colorful Dandiya.  I attended it as one of the guests, standing in a corner, and watching.  The participation was moderate; however, the view was intoxicating.  At least from where I was watching.  How often does one get to witness so many true colors shining through?  I was so mesmerized by the sight that I decided to talk about it(..)

Inconsequential Excitement

It is the month of August, on the shores of the Black Sea.  It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted.  These are tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.  Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.  He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in(..)

The Lingering Fragrance

15 years.  Sometimes, they feel like a lifetime. Sometimes, a blink of an eye. Many early memories of Cybage flash like a set of scattered scenes from a movie you saw as a kid. The shooting for this Cybage movie began in an old army colony apartment of ‘Salunke Vihar’. In those days, the first person to report to work used to be “Maushi”. All our(..)

A Candle’s Breeze

About one week back, as I was busy assembling milestone information to be included in Cybage quarterly performance report – a telephone ring interrupted me.  HR was on the other side.  We had lost one more in the family – young Tarkeshwar Gupta had fallen to the road fury earlier that morning. My immediate thought was no thought – just numbness.(..)
