India today

India, here we come! This will be a great trip.

Thursday, July 26, 2012

The excitement is building as final preparations commence and emails start flying about tomorrow's departure and trip to India.  I wonder how many of my fellow students are unpacking previously packed bags to downgrade weights, rethink wardrobe strategies (it's going to be hot!) and cram in last minute information.
Countdown:  less than 24 hours till bus departure!

Company visits

Cognizant, Renault Nissan, L&T, Sankara Nethralaya and Airtel have all confirmed the company visits.  We are now juggling the dates. 
We have started planning the CXO dinner event.  We are waiting for the date to be given by the US Consul General Ms. Jennifer McIntyre so that we can finalize the event; she is the Chief Guest.  The dinner event will be held in the conference hall at the city offices of Surana and Surana, International Attorneys in Chennai.  This place is just half kilometer from the place where you are staying - The Raj Park Inn.

How to tune in?
As you all prepare to visit India, here is a suggestion on how to start tuning into India so that the 8 days that you spend here become productive.  You may want to read the following newspapers online - The Hindu, Times of India, Economic Times, BusinessLine - so that you start identifying some key issues that are current here in India.  This way, you will find the conversations here with CXOs more productive.
Looking forward to everyone's posts as we explore the enchanted land of India!
