Kareena gives friends a ride!

>> Wednesday, March 31, 2010

It’s common practice for stars to ferry their friends and family to and fro from the studios. But on most occasions the star uses the smallest, most indescript car from his fleet for this chore.

Except Kareena Kapoor. The girl has bought herself a swanky car, and she encourages her friends to take the vehicle for a spin or to get dropped home because she truly believes that like her, her near and dear ones should experience the ultimate luxury. Must say Bebo has a big heart... and a bigger sense of luxury than most of the other B-town superstars, who believe in luxury for themselves, but are often stingy when it comes to others around.

Indian BPO market to grow 25% in 2010...

>> Monday, March 29, 2010

BANGALORE: The business process outsourcing (BPO) market in India is estimated to grow 19% through 2013, according to IT research and advisory firm Gartner.

The domestic India BPO services market grew by 7.3% year-on-year in 2009 primarily due to the global economic uncertainty which led to some price and volume pressures.

Gartner said in a statement it estimates the Indian domestic BPO market would grow into a $1.2 billion market by 2011 and grow to $1.8 billion by 2013.

"In the short term, market trends such as changing demographics and affluence levels, consumption of value-based services, increasing focus on service quality and the continued momentum of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) bear watching, as their impact is certain to influence shifts in buyer needs and behavior," said T J Singh, Research Director at Gartner.

The Indian domestic BPO market is one of the high-growth services segment and has now become more organised.

In the last two years, many established Indian BPO providers and some of the multi-national corporation service providers focusing primarily on the international offshore services market have shifted greater focus and investments to the Indian domestic market", said Singh. "The economic slowdown accentuated this phenomenon".


Obama makes surprise trip to Afghanistan..!!

>> Sunday, March 28, 2010

US President Barack Obama arrived in Kabul on Sunday for an unannounced visit to Afghanistan, his first trip to the country since becoming president and commander-in-chief of the US-led war effort.

Obama's brief trip was expected to include a one-on-one meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, an expanded meeting with Karzai's cabinet and US officials, and a speech to American military personnel.

A White House official, speaking before the trip, said Obama wanted to get an "on the ground update" about the war from General Stanley McChrystal, the US and NATO commander, as well as Karl Eikenberry, the US ambassador.

In December Obama ordered the deployment of an extra 30,000 US troops to Afghanistan and set a mid-2011 target to begin withdrawal.

That increase is under way, though only a few thousand of the extra troops have arrived.

Obama is expected to greet troops and meet with diplomats while in the country.

Obama's domestic victory on healthcare reform last week gives him political space to turn his attention to the Afghan war, which has mixed support from the American public amid rising casualties, costs, and corruption among Afghan leaders.

The trip allows Obama to see the early results of his troop increase strategy, show support for military personnel and refute critics who say his focus on passing healthcare legislation has diverted attention from foreign policy.

Obama traveled to Afghanistan during the 2008 US presidential election but has not been back since his victory over Republican Senator John McCain, whose criticism at the time prodded the Democrat's trip.

The White House official said weather and logistical reasons had thwarted previous attempts at a presidential visit since Obama took office in January 2009.

Much has changed during Obama's first year in office.

Top US officials held a multi-month review of the White House's war policy, culminating in the decision to send more troops.

When all 30,000 arrive by the end of this year, the number of US troops in Afghanistan will have tripled on Obama's watch to 100,000, along with more than 40,000 from other NATO countries.

Karzai, who remained in power after a fraud-marred election, has launched a high profile effort to reach for reconciliation with the Taliban, who have made a comeback more than eight years since their ousting by US-backed Afghan militias.

US defense secretary Robert Gates said last week the timing was still not right for reconciliation with senior Afghan Taliban leaders.

Obama speaks less often to Karzai than did his predecessor, former President George W Bush, who launched the war in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.
