How not to woo money - A demo by Tamil Nadu .
Recently saw the post by Kaps on Bill Gates visit to my hometown.
Yes, He went there to meet with some prominent locals.
Just as in any other place, my great home state of Tamil Nadu has two political parties. The ruling and the opposition.
Mr. Gates was in India on the request of a prominent Minister who happens to be affiliated to the opposition party. This guy is actually good, tech savvy and is the brains behind Intel, AMD, NOKIA and others even considering deals in India. Unfortunately, these politicians in India are in the habit of doing good deeds only if
a. they get the credit ! and
b. the other party gets penalized for not doing the good deed !
Wouldn't it have been great to have a bipartisan effort to woo Mr. Gates to Tamil Nadu and unload some stuff off his heavy wallet ? What a Shame !!
This is where we have to learn from the Chinese. We have a long way to go . . .
