Yesterday was the last day in office for a man who was instrumental in bringing the IT revolution in India. A person who doesn’t believe in legacies. Today is his birthday. Wishing Narayana Murthy a very happy birthday from the whole team. Salute to you Sir. 🙂 Today he would be reading our spicy saturday picks on his iPad. 🙂 Here they are.
- Who : Shuddhabrata Sengupta
What : At the Risk of Heresy: Why I am not Celebrating with Anna Hazare
Spicy : If, as a society, we were serious about combating the political nexus that sustains corruption – we would be thinking seriously about extending the provisions of the Right to Information Act to the areas where it can not currently operate – national security and defence, says Shuddhabrata. He also suggests some more remedies that should actually be adopted to fight corruption. Must read.
- Who : AAD
What : Happy Independence day !!

What : A Treat for My Senses…
Spicy : We all might crib about the heavy traffic on roads, potholes and other nuisances during monsoons, but we cannot deny the fact that the environment is never more pleasant as it is in this time of the year. Warmth of your bed, coffee, pakodas and bhajiyas…fascinating moments! Chhavi describes how she feels in this season and her thoughts.
- Who : Baddy
What : बचपन के दिन
Spicy : Our first cycle ride, scoldings from parents, fighting with neighbour’s kids, making homes from sand or blocks, being amazed by small things…these are the little joys of life that one comes across during childhood. बचपन के दिन सच मुच बहुत याद आते है, जब हम किसी भी लालच और छल कपट से परे रहते थे। Read Baddy’s Hindi poetry on remembering childhood days.

What : Is there a teaching moment we’re missing today?
Spicy : In all the chaos of Jan Lokpal Bill and Anna Hazare Movement, are there some things that we are skipping; some moments of learning probably? Swarna enlightens us with few things to learn. See if you had skipped them before.
- Who : Ashwini
What : Someone’s Blunder, Your Tragedy!
