Nokia to shift Global NMS to India from home Finland

Nokia has announced that it will shift its global telecom network management services hub from its home-base in Finland, to India.

Speaking at the occasion, Rajeev Suri, senior vice president, Nokia Asia Pacific (Networks), said that the managed services will be led globally out of India from July this year, and that Ashish Chowdhary, presently Head of Networks in India, will escalate to Global Head of Managed Services from India by the end of 2006. Suri said a central role was envisaged for India, wherein the country will not only function as a large target market but also as a hub for delivery and direction.

It is Nokia's Managed Services Division that runs telecom networks of service providers as part of the outsourcing agreement, and the current Vice President of Managed Services, Henrik Sund, is reportedly quitting the company. Suri added that Nokia's first Global Network Solutions Centre situated in Chennai had begun operations in May, and that it would serve as a hub for Nokia Operations Centers across-the-globe. In a separate announcement, Nokia and Siemens declared their intention to merge Nokia's Networks Business Group with Siemens' carrier-related operations to form a new company, named Nokia Siemens Networks. The resultant company will be a 50-50 joint venture, and will hold the promise to become a global leader in terms of growth segments in fixed and mobile network infrastructure and services.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
