Apr 2nd, 2011 : This day, every Indian has been waiting for 28 years after all, the dream of India becoming Champions in World Cricket has come true. Indians will carry this emotions for decades to come.. Now, everyone has their own perceptions about how Team India became World Champions of Cricket. But my belief on one man “The man – The Machine – The Master Mind –> Midas Singh Dhoni” has made everything for Indian Cricket. Now we are the champions of all formats of cricket which makes cricket more and more dominant in all parts of the country. Whenever I see small kids playing cricket in streets I find the intense passion on this game and one man made it true for this country by lifting the Cup of Pride.. To my admiration many people started accusing Dhoni’s leadership as luck working out at times. If it is the case, why didn’t the same luck work out for Sachin or Ganguly when they lead the team in World Cup earlier. I call Dhoni’s way of leading as the Spirit of Platinum Leadership. For me, it’s a continuous case study. And to all the polls that discussed about who played the best in WC Final against Srilanka, I completely abide by the decision of ICC Match Referee. For all those, who are unable to digest and hope that India will lift the most coveted cup of cricket.Here are some insights about why its so easy for us. FYI:: http://tinyurl.com/SachinonDhoni ; http://tinyurl.com/KapilonDhoni ; http://tinyurl.com/GangulyonDhoni ;
Apr 5th / 6th : With the World Cup memories still afresh within, I attended Cognizant Technology Services internship interview. I am offered an opportunity to ‘Be Open, Be Flexible, Be Aware, Be Proactive, Be Collaborative, Be focused, Be Efficient, Innovative and above all Be Cognizant!! Seriously I thank my conscious effort about working with NotionInk earlier and honestly rating gadgets. There was a bit of luck that turned on my side at the end of day. I should thank Vinay Mishra for giving us opportunity and Sridhar Sir + K Ramesh Sir for shaping us efficiently. I am about to board CTSH Chennai on Apr 25th, 2011 and I have to prove to be passionate.. I am done with 2nd Sem exams in parallel.
Oct 24th: Its unofficial, come what may. I am engaged with iridiumInteractive Ltd., Sriram Bharatam sir made it my day! Not getting any words to express my happiness. (more soon.. )
Oct 29th:ISB Connect : ‘Sreenivas Nandam’ + Sateesh Andra + Nadendla Manohar and ‘iridium’ Learning new terms.. Thnx TiE, Hyd 🙂
Sept 20th, 2010 – Its not an exaggeration to address several students of IPE business school that day. This reminds me of the good olden days when I used to sit in audience chairs in the same college. I really enjoyed sharing my time with my juniors @ IPE as a chief guest that day. The auditorium was decorated with posters of CEO’s of top software cos. I was amazed to find mine among them. I am also happy to share the dais with Prof Sai Kumar sir who was my guru.

Here it is! Unlike poking about the theme of that day. I thought I will share how I became an Entrepreneur. I explained to fellow mates how I used to spend time at IPE even after classes ended. I shared that I generally used to share time at IPE canteen and grab information from different persons. I explained them how I got my first job and what I used to do at HCL. I explained them that everyone should be clear about the role they are willing to work for. If they are passionate about the role – the job is open. I shared what does a successful elevator pitch requires – my experience with Shiv Nadar, HCL.
I explained students the essence of social media by asking ‘How many of them updated LinkedIn profile in the last few hours?’ and ‘Where is Anand Mahindra now?’ I also emphasized them how important it is to learn story telling – only key to live.
I requested each one of them to do the following:
1. Watch innovations @ TED (Its not a rocket science)
2. Start ventures on their own or work for Start-ups (what’s stopping you from ?)
3. Watch Steve Jobs at launch of any product
4. Keep an eye on Slide Share (As it has all corporate presentations)
5. Observe e-Social media on Youtube..
DNA of the interview = ‘Resume on Slide Share + Message on Twitter’
Regards, Sriram Bharatam
