This truck drove by on a lane adjacent to mine, on the Outer Ring Road in Bangalore yesterday (Thanks to Hemanshu Bhatt, riding with me, who was able to react quickly and take this photograph.). My first reaction: "Wow, what a great ad for the truck company". My second reaction: "Poor elephant. Would s/he be happier running around in the jungles of Karnataka?". A day later, I am still wondering whether s/he would be happier in the jungles. I remember reading an article recently, which said that once domesticated/captive, an animal will probably perish quickly if released in the wild.

I especially liked the last paragraph in this OpEd piece.

Ironically divergent policy moves, on the same day:

India: Proposes to tax angel investments. (http://www.livemint.com/2012/03/18211651/Startups-to-be-taxed-on-funds.html?atype=tp)

US: Proposes to allow "crowd-funding" for angel type investments. (http://allthingsd.com/20120315/the-new-law-that-will-turn-the-start-up-world-upside-down-crowdfunding/)

No prizes for guessing who will win the race to create more businesses, jobs, economy, ....

Desperately seeking advise: Should I click the "Was this information helpful" link at the bottom left :-?

I got this dialog box when I tried to turn on "track changes" in a MS Excel file I was working on. Long live Microsoft Office!!!

Try LibreOffice - It is open source, runs on windows and has more than 90% of MS Office's features.

I use it and the only time I have problems is when I'm opening a particularly complex powerpoint.  Though exporting to powerpoint has never been a problem.  Other than that it is far more powerful in some areas.

Kudos to my buddy Rajan Mani, for another case won on behalf of the disabled, in India.

I was perusing the Android Marketplace on my phone, and went to the page where the "Top Free" apps were listed, in order of popularity/downloads/installs. Facebook was at Number 3. Google Plus was at number 63. Even "Angry Wife" in which the angry wife gets to throw dishes at her poor husband, at Number 24, was waaaaay ahead of Google Plus!!! Go figure.
