India's IT connexion

If India has recorded a growth of 9%, it is the service sector which has contributed a lot... Both in Jobs and wealth...
The Indian IT sector is one of the most basic service sector that has helped India a lot...

Everyone talks about India becoming an IT super power...Will India ever become a IT super power? Is the country on the right direction?

Well a report sayssss.... India is ranked 48th in the world in the IT industry competitiveness index 2008.

India has an overall score of 28.9 on the IT competitive index as per the study conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit. The study assesses and compares the IT industry environments of 66 countries to find out the IT sector's competitiveness.

The study revealed that India performed best in business environment and support for IT industry development with a score of 59.3 per cent and 54 per cent. Areas of improvement include IT infrastructure and R & D environment, which are relatively low in the IT industry competitive index.


Rank 1 :US


The US ranks first in the IT industry competitiveness index 2008. The US offers the world's most supportive environment for IT firms, despite the current economic turmoil, the study by the Economist Intelligence Unit states.

Rank 2: Taiwan


While Taiwan is the second best country in terms of IT competitiveness, the UK, Sweden and Denmark with strong and open business environments, well-developed infrastructure and robust legal protection for intellectual property are in the top five list.


Rank 3: The UK


The US, Singapore and UK provide the best environments for human-capital development. The US is a bug attraction for foreign students.

However, the brain drain of IT talent from emerging markets is slowing down as training opportunities increase in many markets. Many IT professionals also return home to countries like India and Vietnam to work in top companies or head start-ups, the EIU study points out.

Rank 4: Sweden


Sweden and Denmark have risen to the 4th and 5th respectively thanks to a more favourable business environment and improvement in IT infrastructure.

The countries in the top ranks owe their technological edge to high-quality networks.


Rank 5: Denmark


Denmark's score has also risen in the human capital category. The study takes into account overall business environment, IT infrastructure, human capital, legal environment, R&D environment, support for IT industry development.

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks. 
The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr…

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have. 
I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat. 
I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing th…
