The waves

“To those of you who think that India Inc; is still fighting shy of moves abroad, here’s some news: Almost 50 M&A deals were struck overseas by Indian companies last year, valued in excess of Rs. 8000 crore. The previous year, the respective numbers were a mere 28 and Rs. 941 crore. As for 2004, get ready to be swept away by a deluge of such deals…..”

So goes the leader for Business Today’s special issue of celebrating Young Super Performers.

Well, the choice of the trio is good. R. Subramaniyan of Subhiksha Trading Services, Sulajja Firodia Motwani Joint MD, Kinetic Engineering; and Prasoon Joshi – National Creative Director, McCann Erickson.

But what intrigues me is the choice of one lone woman!! As if sticking to a norm of ‘choose – at least – one- woman-“ an unspoken rule in every field today. Well I would be delighted to have a sneak re-wind view into the discussion room of Business Today to get a candid picture J Of course with due respect to the selection process, I still wonder, why not all three were men? Why not all three were women? Or why not 2:1 ratio in reverse? Etc.. etc…!! Perhaps the selection process stuck to the ratio of candidates available. After all, men still rule the rooks in Business ; isn’t it? So better stick to a 2:1 - 2 men and one woman ratio?? !! Picture perfect!!

P.S: you know what? when I signed in at blogger.com to post this piece, I actually forgot my login name !! so much for my memory - worse still it reminds me of the long gap between my posts. I am sorry for the missing dates. I'll try my best to be more regular and ensure that such memory lapses don't happen again :-)
