KJo probably got outsmarted by some "onsite" variety from Infy/Oil Co. Hence his deep distrust of Indian IT giants KJo's experience with TCS folks is an epic story in BRF ;). Where is that joker NaMu who talks about ethics when all he did was violate laws and bend them when he was CEO? Th...

Re: Mass Rapid Transit in India

Nothing is useless or too little! If the Bengaluru metro prevents a few 1000 vehicles from being on the road, it will help those who really need to use vehicles.
