Recently I promoted a great guy named Ganesh Samant to Vice President responsible for my India-based Global Services Delivery.

It will change how we communicate.” That conversation was two months ago, and I can ...Read more
I can very precisely recollect, back in 2006, when Airtel launched EDGE (2.5G) network, me & my room-mate (then bachelors) were fanatically trying to access web through our mobile connection. We were thrilled to see Orkut homepage on our laptop screens. Yippee we got that. And, we celebrated that occasion with a couple of beers.

Around a decade has passed since then and we are into something really really huge and super productive tool called www or World Wide Web or Internet.

Its application & deployment scenarios may differ from for a particular ...Read more

A service provider should allow access to all content whether it is sent by an individual blogger or a multinational company regardless of the source without any extra fees. Still wavering! Let’s understand it with an example Before the advent of DTH in India, cable TV was omnipresent. Users used to enjoy all channels (paid or free-to-air) by paying a fixed amount. There was absolutely no difference between paid and free ...Read more
