Debates and Spice


Whenever people ask me as to what they should be getting into in their careers, they are too surprised as they find my answers to be not consistent with what others normally would say. They would be expecting me to tell them that a career in Software/BPO/KPO is a good option for their careers. However to their astonishment they would hear me tell them to get into things like CleanTech, Micro Finance or better still entrepreneurship.

Its my belief that all the 3 things I have mentioned above are what I believe will be the next big things. In fact they are good career options that one should consider very seriously. Its not for nothing that i’m advocating these areas as I expect the coming years to be very fruitful for people getting into these spaces.

What we have seen in the internet era so far is nothing to what we are going to see in the CleanTech field. There’s umpteen number of opportunities in any of the three areas and very soon we are going to see blockbuster of companies getting created out of India.

So watch out for this field in the months ahead…

Inflation seems to be going up & up every week and at this rate its going to affect consumers/people at all levels regardless of which strata they belong to. The rates of the food prices, fuel, FMCG, Construction materials, etc., have all risen by more than 40% to 60 % and this is surely a big worrying factor for all concerned.

The prices have risen in the last 4 to 5 months and something drastic have to be done by the government.The amount of increase in some cases is really appalling and there seems to be no logical reason as to why it should be so. There is something more than what meets the common eye. There is definitely some cartelization here and this needs to be addressed by the government and the corporates alike.

Everyone talks about the existence of cartels including the media from time to time. However nobody seems to be taking things with the amount of seriousness that it deserves. At the rate the building material prices are shooting up what can individuals especially the common man really do/ aspire for. Its becoming very difficult for even the higher middle class people to aspire for their so called “dream houses” (a decent one). A few can probably pay the prices but not everyone can do that. What happens to people who are not working in the IT/ITEs industry ?

Its not as though people from all sectors can pay those kind of prices. Just because one pays doesn’t mean to say that everyone should pay similar rates. The gov seesm to be ineffective in arresting the sharp increase in prices. The people in the gov seem to be oblivious of whats going on as they seldom know what the reality is as they don’t have to go through what we mortals face.

I shudder to think whats gonna happen in the near future. Is there any solution to all of these…

I request people to suggest what needs and can be done so as to arrest the sharp increase in the prices.
