Mumbai Business (India Post)

I decided to extend my trip by a few days and head down to Mumbai. These days, most people recognize Mumbai as the city in India that was attacked by terrorists in November. But Mumbai is much more than that. It’s a hustling and bustling international city of over twenty million people. Much of the [...]

Whateva Happened To The Black Taj? (India Post)

  On Sunday we took a road trip from Delhi to Agra to see the world famous Taj Mahal. It’s a little over 100 miles from Delhi but takes about four hours each way through crappy roads with lots of traffic. Luckily we had a comfortable van and a competent driver so the trip wasn’t [...]

Delhi: The Up In Smog Tour (India Post)

At first, I thought the thick and dense fog/smog that has blanketed Delhi each night causing havoc on the already chaotic roads was from the disco machines at Param’s wedding. Perhaps I’m being a bit facetious but that explanation is almost as likely as the ideas that this is just plain fog. The temperature has [...]

The Master Blaster (India Post)

My favorite cricket star is Sachin Tendulkar. If you must ask why he is my favorite player than you must not follow cricket. Tendalkur is everyone’s favorite player in India. If you want to make friends (or at least make conversation) with an Indian just mention cricket and their Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. There face [...]

Two Year Ending Days In Delhi (India Post)

I’m about to attempt to recap the last few days and nights so that you all have a better sense of how I am spending my time. This will be quite challenging though as it seems like I’ve been on one long never ending binge the likes of which I haven’t experienced since senior year [...]

Happy and A Healthy and A Hearty Welcome

This is probably my last post of 2008 so wanted to wish you all a healthy, happy and prosperous new year. Something happened today that put me in a contemplative mood. My roommate in India (and business colleague) had a horrible allergic reaction to something he ate today while we were visiting the Lotus Temple [...]

Time Keeps On Moving (India Post)

I’ve been here in India almost one week and I’m not exactly sure what time it is here in Delhi (or in New York for that matter). My guess on the time is usually within a few hours and, surprisingly, that seems to be working out well enough for me. You punctual people might find [...]

The Youngster’s Hip Hop Party (India Post)

Sunday night was Hip Hop night for all you gringos keeping score at home. It was the first official party to celebrate Param and Ro’s wedding. As you can guess, it was a hip hop themed affair that was especially catered to the younger generation. What does that all mean? Let me try my best [...]

The Beautiful Traffic (India post)

Saturday was my first full day in India. I arrived a day earlier than most of the US crew but was anxious to check out this country. I made arrangements at the travel desk to get a driver and a tour guide for the day. When asked what I wanted to see/do I told the [...]
