India tour March 14, 2006

On day 2 of my annual tour of our Avanade offices in Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.  Currently in Mumbai, which is truly indescribable if you haven’t been here before.  The size and scale of the infrastructure challenge for a city with this many people is incredible.  Passion of our employees here is fantastic and the cultural focus and support of technology careers is something I’m sure other countries wish they could institutionalize.

Currently reading Freedom at Midnight by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre based on a recommendation for a good read about history of India.  Hard to find domestically and I understand you could buy here for a fraction of the price but I found from a Amazon reseller.  I like reading history and am really enjoying it and for a 24 hr flight, it fills the hours. 

Note for others traveling to Accenture office here – stay at the Renaissance instead of Hyatt or Sheraton, it’s nicer, much closer to the office and I’ve heard cheaper.    Traffic here also exists on a whole other scale so location is key to avoid spending days in taxis.

Read this one then for an amazing tale in India (if you havent already) – http://www.reviewsofbooks.com/shantaram/

I discovered it years ago and everytime I am on a plane someone is reading it without fail as it seems to have become more popular.
