The list grows

I don't trust most politicians for obvious reasons. When approaching a police official, I don't know if he is a rare honest and hardworking law enforcer or the more frequently found corrupt one. When going to a doctor, I don't know if the medicines he prescribed is what I need or they are prescribed because he gets cut money from the medicine companies. When seeking justice, I don't know if the lawyer only does lip service to his "noble profession". It's a long list, but there were still a few sectors / industries which I believed won't join the list.

But, when one of the top IT companies in India, whose shares determine the fate of the Indian Stock Market, with numerous awards including a recent award for corporate governance, with a blue eyed boy of Indian IT sector with several "Entrepreneur of the year" award as it's CEO, with one of the top ranking auditor firms auditing it's accounts, is involved in a humongous financial scam, I just don't know what's next in the list.

True, Comforting words these days just appear as false and hopeless promises to ourselves :(( !!

I have given up on following the news and it keeps me unrealistically positive and optimistic :)

As mentioned above, don't let this compromise your new year resolution.

Whats next... hmm... anybody's guess !!!

Meanwhile, have a look at this :

The World Bank said on Sunday it plans to publish the names of all companies it bars from receiving bank contracts, and named three Indian firms. "There are currently three companies that (have) been debarred along with their affiliates under the Bank group's corporate procurement program," the bank said in a statement. It said it had barred IT company Satyam Computer Services for eight years and Wipro Technologies for four years for "improper benefits to bank staff".

Not letting these things break my resolution, but it bothers me.

I believe if quite a few bigwigs(not just IT) are really checked i am sure there will be lot of similar scams.. just that they probably do it in a better way..I know for sure big deals even with MNCs and big indian companies doesn't get through if you don't pay huge sums of money.. A friend who had passed out of IIM-B and a bunch of other who are in marketing keep talking about it.. they Quit marketing for the same reason

@Sanjit
I saw the blog... you can't call some of them A grade for sure. You are bored in Singapore? How can one get bored in Singapore? There are so many places to see, things to do, food to eat and stuff to buy!
