Here is another perspective of Globalization:
What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Princess Diana's death.

How come?

Answer :
An English princess
with an Egyptian boyfriend
crashes in a French tunnel,
riding in a German car
with a Dutch engine,
driven by a Belgian
who was drunk on Scottish whisky,
followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,
on Japanese motorcycles,
treated by an American doctor,
using Brazilian medicines.
This is sent to you by a Canadian,
using American Bill Gates' technology,
and you're probably reading this on your computer, that uses Taiwanese chips,
and a Korean monitor,
assembled by Bangladeshi workers
in a Singapore plant,
transported by Indian truck drivers,
hijacked by Indonesians,
unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,
and trucked to you by Mexican illegals...

That, certainly is Globalization!!!!

Professor Ashwani Kumar has been a valuable faculty member of O.P. Jindal Global University and took active part in teaching and institution building initiatives at JGBS and JGU. Before he joined JGU, he was a distinguished member of the Indian Police Service and retired as the Director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Dr. Ashwani Kumar's honesty, integrity and rectitude have always been a great source of inspiration for people who have engaged and interacted with him. We have had the opportunity to work closely with him and have experienced his humility and grace.

We rocked this holi. It was more amazing experience than last years holi. Every one just rolled in colors. Please find the photo below....

Was having a very interesting conversation with a pretty senior person at lunch - He thinks, the reason as to why large organizations keep people from premier institutes (he himself is from one) on their 'management committee', is that it adds a decorative medal to the organization - I think there is a different reason - being from a premier institute allows options that are extremely important to keep, if one is to prepare plan B against a confrontation of how, let's say, business has to be run!! So the medal is more about the ability to take out the sword that orginilly brought the medal, in times of need -

What say?
