Go Kiss the world

Go kiss the world is a literally translation of "Ja duniya ko chumlo". "Go Kiss the world" by Subroto Bagchi is a great book to read not just for young professionals but for everyone. Although the book is all about Life lessons for the Young Professional, it serves as nuggets of wisdom for people of any age.

The book is autobiographical and traces the life of Subroto Bagchi from being born in rural India to go onto co-found Mindtree, a very successful software services company.

The book is split into 3 parts, each reflecting the 3 different phases of Subroto Bagchi's life. The first part is all about growing up in rural India and travellingfrom one city to another, one town to another town and one village to another. The second part is about growing from a clerk in a government office to making Wipro Grow. The third part is about taking the risk and plunging into the brave world of Entrepreneurship to form MindTree.

Apart from its obvious autobiographical appeal, it also is a very good book to see how a person like Subroto Bagchi thinks and lives. May the gardner make more flowers to bloom.

Yellow zerbera - see the effect of the shadow

Yellow zerbera - see the effect of the shadow. The shadow from the overhanging branch is causing a nice effect on the flower.
