Sitting at Starbucks with my
favourite Black Coffee minum to pass the two hour break that i get at work,started
thinking what i learned in the last 3 years in United States.
After an hour of introspection fikir, i analyzed few things what Indian students
who come to study abroad do not seem to understand.
We ( including me & excluding the wise) tend to mingle and get along with people from our
home country and stay away from the rest of the fellow students!
We are missing the point that they(or similar) are the people with whom we
are going to work in future.Befriending them only helps us in learning
about their culture,their thinking style,most of all increasing your personal
Graduating from a School where most of the students are either American/Chinese/Indian
i could hardly remember the names of more than 2 students who are not
Indians(you guessed it right both are beautiful girls love ) , today i see an oppurtunity lost.

Couples Retreat - Official Music

Academy Award-winning composer and internationally renowned musician
A.R. Rahman makes his first foray into composing music for an American comedy
feature film with Universal Pictures’ forthcoming romantic comedy, Couples Retreat.
The soundtrack will be released via Relativity Media digitally on October 6, 2009, and
in all retail outlets nationwide on October 13, 2009.

For Couples Retreat, A.R. Rahman has conjured up the sounds of a tropical island oasis
fusing the laid-back rhythms of island music along with his gift for creating golden melodies.
The opportunity to work on Couples Retreat was a welcome challenge for Rahman who
created a score that complements the film’s light-hearted tone with just a hint of his
signature "Indian" sound.

""There are so many musical avenues to be explored," says Rahman. "I’ve wanted to
try new things and for a long time and had hoped to have the opportunity to venture
into American comedy. This film presented a lot of creative challenges and was deeply
rewarding to be apart of. "

KISS - Keep It Short And Simple

During one of my management classes my professor was giving a lecture on several
management techniques and case studies...

One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of
the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan's biggest cosmetics companies.
The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was
empty. Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which
transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some
reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its
engineers to solve the problem.

Solution A:-
The engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors
manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes that passed through the line to make
sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they
spent whoopee amount to do so.

Solution B:-
But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem,
he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc but instead came out with another solution.
He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched
the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.

Moral of the story:-
" Keep It Short & Simple"
( KISS cium ) i.e. always look for simple solutions. Devise
the simplest possible solution that solves the problem. So, learn to focus on solutions not
on problems!!

Yesterday i was reading some quotes(i believe they make one wiser
encem) and found
something by
Friedrich Nietzsche "Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path
they have chosen, few in pursuit of the goal.
i was thinking of it the whole day (i had nothing to do than that fikir ) as which
category do i belong? ,only by 1 AM today i found out i have been stubborn enough
in taking decisions regarding my career and life but none of them had made me
pursue my goal or at least travel in that direction.
I accessed that it was not how stubborn u take decisions but how wisely
u think before taking those decisions!
