Bharathiraja Ramachandrabose - Process Consultant, Adea International’s Bangalore Office

I am a process consultant with Adea International, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you my views on cultural differences, life in India, and the technology revolution. The cultural difference between people across borders, states, towns and even two neighbors is something that has always excited me. Study of different cultures has been one of my favorite subjects at all times. There were times when I used to spend hours together thinking about the cultural difference I saw at my neighbor’s house itself.

Out of all that I come across and think about, there may be thousands of things that I discuss with friends, enemies, relatives and the ones who don't fall in any of these categories. The act of thinking, which is supposed to be a lazy man's act (mind you, there is no action involved!), is fed by the innumerable observations that he makes every nano-second in his existence. I am driven crazy by the observations that I make everyday. I love observing people and their odd and even behaviors. When the innumerable - intensive observations taught me that there is nobody who could listen to EVERYTHING that I talk about, the habit of writin…
