(Flashback Post: October 6, 1999) Project Spiftcar was one of the challenging projects that I am proud to have worked on directly, which set the stage for my next 15 years (on-going) partnership with MSN India & other media clients in India. The engagement was with Microsoft India to develop and deliver NDTV.COM Election Website for the Parliament elections in 1999. This was challenging for many reasons including having Streaming Video (which was bleeding edge in those days),  live integration with real-time election results from backend systems and the duration which was in total just 10 days from ground breaking…

Today afternoon I was suddenly called to come out of my room and I saw the entire team at Vishwak standing out. Then two (GV, SaraP) of them came forward and gave me a nice large “Thank You” greeting card with all their pictures and signatures.   Then came another gift, a beautiful painting. In my 15 years of experience this is probably the first “Thank You” card/gift. I was touched. Yesterday we had a big dinner to celebrate an achievement in Vishwak. Overall, I am in cloud nine now.

இன்று கணித்தமிழ் சங்கம் தனது மாதக்கூட்டத்தை எங்கள் அலுவலகத்தில் (விஷ்வக் ஸொல்யுஷண்ஸில்) நடத்தியது. கூட்டத்தில் தே.மு.தி.க சட்டமன்ற உறுப்பினரும், மாஃபாய் நிறுவனருமான திரு.கே.பாண்டியராஜன் சிறப்புரையாற்றினார். தமிழக மாணவர்களிடம் கணினி தேர்ச்சியின் அவசியத்தை சிறப்பாக எடுத்துரைத்தார். உறுப்பினரின் பலப்பல கேள்விகளுக்கு அழகாகவும் பொறுமையோடும் பதிலளித்தார். அவருக்கு நன்றிகள்.

In my firm Vishwak Solutions we conduct periodic programs on various topics for self-improvement, health, technology & productivity. Last month we began a pilot program called “Vishwak360” the objective of which is to expose everyone in the organization to every department & its function – to give a 360 view of what’s happenings. I delivered the first talk and I spoke on Software Licensing – probably the driest subject, when selecting the topic I decided if I can get the audience interested through this then all the subsequent talks are going to be lively & enjoyable. Over the years software…

In support of Lions Blood Bank (Chennai), we had organized a Blood donation camp in our Office at Vishwak Solutions (Chennai). The last time when we had a similar camp in our office I couldn’t donate blood as I was on that day on Anti-Allergic medication. Today I didn’t want to miss the opportunity and volunteered to donate. The first time I donated blood was in college days and then only once or twice after that, so I was a little tense. But the good Samaritans & volunteers from Lions Club helped each of the donor(s) to be at ease…
