Best Indian Corporate Blog
This is the best corporate blog I have read from any Indian corporate or from any foreign one for that matter.
Subroto Bagchi is the founder of MindTree - an Indian IT company.
He is also a bestselling author of 3 books.
In his corporate blog he is frank and wise and intelligent on a wide-range of topics including: IT, business, economy, India, people, travel, personal issues, etc.
It is exceptional to find such a leader to be so candid about a range of issues. He would have been a leader no matter what sphere of work he would have chosen. The amount of responses he gets for his blog posts shows clearly that he is not just a corporate leader but has fans across society.
He and his management also aims to make MindTree into a USD One billion company. They are appreciated by industry and liked by employees. MindTree’s website also reflects Energy, Enthusiasm and Success. They link to popular social networking sites and have podcasts as well.
Subroto’s blog is at: http://www.mindtree.com/subrotobagchi/index.php
Interesting recent topics:
Not one, but many Microsofts – about India’s lack of IT Products and Microsoft making USD One Billion revenue in India
My Mother is an Ugly Woman – about the educated Indians mocking India and its culture/ society/ people
Burial of the dead – about a man who built a profession around carrying unclaimed dead bodies by simply volunteering to be a good human
An old one and favourite - The Fallen Tomato Cart at Scribd.com
The corporate logo of MindTree is unique as is their views on business. All in all a great example of branding, communication and business intelligence combined with human touch.
