Dress Code:

1) You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary.

2) If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.
3) If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.
4) If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome', that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it's true!!!

An Introduction to IPR & Patents

Hi Everybody!

I invite you to attend a 4 session program entitled "An Introduction to IPR & Patents" starting on Thursday, 15th January 2009 which I will be leading.

This program goes forward from the earlier session "IPR - Why and What?" which I led on 10th Dec, 2008. I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions we had in that session and, going by the feedback I got, many of you who participated enjoyed it too! The program starting on 15th Jan will also be fun and interactive, plus it will be structured, rigorous and each session will be shorter (1 hour).

Please see below a short write-up about this program.

The schedule for the program is:
Session 1: 15th Jan, 2009 - Thursday
Session 2: 16th Jan, 2009 - Friday
Session 3: 20th Jan, 2009 - Tuesday
Session 4: 21st Jan, 2009 - Wednesday
Time: 4 to 5pm
Venue: Kensium Conference Room

You can participate in this program even if you did not participate in the earlier session held on 10th Dec, 2008. No prior knowledge of IPR is required to participate in this program. Printed notes will be provided during the sessions.

Please email, message or speak with me at the earliest to register for this program. The number of participants is limited.

Thank you,

About “An Introduction to IPR & Patents”

As you might be aware, creating Intellectual Property and protecting these through Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is becoming more and more important, especially for IT and Knowledge based companies like Kensium. IPRs are an important measure of the kind of innovation and value addition that happens in a company. In the near future, companies cannot hope to effectively compete in the marketplace unless they have a strategy and system for creating, protecting and commercially exploiting IPR.

Few will dispute that people and the “creations of their mind” – i.e., Intellectual Property (IP) – are among the most valuable assets that a business can have. IPRs can enable companies to leverage these “creations of the mind” for deriving business & economic advantage.

At the individual level, even though most people have heard about IPRs such as Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks & Geographical Indications (GI), there is still a lot of confusion about the various types of IPR, what they protect and how they can impact our work and our lives.

This program will give you,
1) a through grounding in the basic concepts of IP, IPRs & Patents, and
2) a sense of how these things show up in the Real World out there,
through Examples and Case Studies.

Nine Questions and Two Suggestion for 2009


1. What do you talk about at your coffee break?

What is the subject of your unguarded conversations with yourself and others? Are you living in troubled times? The media has to talk about crises because sensationalism sells, but you do not have to think, talk or act that way.

2. Do you see abundance or scarcity?
Your perspective is important because it determines how you look at your life and everyone around you. Is the glass half full or half empty? There is an abundance of information and opinions but quite often a scarcity of truth in them

3. Are you fearful or empowered?

There are an abundance of things to be concerned about: your mortgage, the heating, food, health, your job, friends, children your spouse. Fear can only come from the feeling that things are out of your control. The opposite side of the coin is also true. If you feel in control then you feel empowered.

4. Are your “glory days” ahead of you or behind you?

I say they are ahead of you. Do not look back. What you have done is done. Do not blame yourself or anyone else for anything that was done or for the results of it for in so doing, you relinquish your power, abandon your dreams and wander through life. Instead, do what gives you joy in your life and your “glory days” will be ahead of you.

5. What are your resources?

Above and beyond everything else, it is you! Your talents, attitude energy, ethics and experiences will determine your success or failure. Your friends encourage you, your enemies help you to recognize areas that need improvement. Your community and the universe want you to succeed. Accept yourself and others exactly as you are now. Stretch your comfort zone and accept challenges.

6. Where do you want to go?

You will never know unless and until you “ step out over the edge.” You will never strike out if you never swing the bat, but you will also never get a home run unless you swing at the ball. You had the dream and it is still there. Go for it! Make sure that you are having fun along the way.

7. How do you look at your “lions, tigers and bears?”

They are your true friends disguised as problems/challenges. If you run from them, they will catch up with you and destroy your dreams. Instead, greet them, meet them then get to know them. Each one of them holds a secret key to your success and happiness which you can never know until you solve their riddle.

8. What is important to you?

Many people say that it is money,.power, possessions. But they are empty. although people think that it will get them the feeling that they are looking for, that we are all looking for. The answer to that question is the same for all of us, “the feeling that you have value, in and of yourself.”

9. What is holding you back?

I am not a Mind reader or a soul reader so I could not possibly answer that question. But I do have two suggestions that will help you discover you answer to the question.

Suggestion 1.

When in doubt, DO something. Sitting back and hiding from life has never accomplished anything. If what you did does not work out or is wrong, someone will tell you about it and you will have discovered one way that it does not work. Then repeat the process using the new information.

Suggestion 2.

Buy a book that will wake up your senses and stimulate your thinking about who you are, why you exist and that places no limits on the possibilities of what you can do with your life. Living in the Unlimited Universe” is such a book.

Happy New Year!

1. In order to develop friendly relationship between the two countries, I.K.Gujral and Nawaz Sharif decided to visit each other's country regularly. The first visit was by Gujral to Pakistan. There Sharif showed him Pakistan's modern telecommunication systems. It was so good that Gujral made a call to Rajiv Gandhi in hell and talked to him for 5 minutes!

2. The bill for the call came to only Re.1.

3. When Gujral came back, he also wanted India's telecommunication systems to be at the best when Nawaz Sharif visited India. Suitable arrangements were made. Sharif came to India, visited the telecom department and talked to Zia-ul-Haq in hell for 5 minutes.

4. But this time, the bill was Rs. 500!

5. Sharif asked with a sarcastic smile - "Why are telephone calls to hell so costly in India ?"

6. A high level diplomat gave a smiling reply - "From Pakistan to hell, it is a local call, Sir, while from India it is long distance!".
