The news of Ratan Tata showing gates to Cyrus Mistry was a big delight for an HR professional like me. I take this event as a starting point of a corporate renaissance. The Indian professionals have always seen corporate houses like Tata, Wipro, Accenture as dream companies- not because of their brand value but because of their corporate culture and job security.

Neither me nor my son has any relation with atrocities faced by partition related incidents. I always wonder how to explain my son about the scene in the movie Bhag Milkha Bhag where he visits his village and goes to his backyard in Pakistan. The hardships and agony faced by our ancestor's is beyond words and imagination of generation X.
