Why is the name secret ? It is an open forum after all and we are discussing IBM, TCS, Baan and all. Plus you do mention that it was a nice gesture.

I hate this 'n' fold increases promised everywhere.

not so long ago, indian ministries were going ga ga over expected 2 million IT jobs.

brainless, senseless hypes creating unnecessary hopes for young students.

The biggest threat to USD to come from China and Mid -East. The currently launched Iranian Petro bourse is going to trade on Euros. The chinese holding a huge amount of American Treasury Bonds which they may encash under pressure if the USD goes further on lower levels and others include middle-east, india may follow the suit.

As of today Indian exporters are also started quoting Euros.
