Some Basics...............

Some Basics...................

1. When Snake is alive, Snake eats Ants.
When Snake is dead, Ants eat Snake.
Time can turn at any time.
Don't neglect anyone in your life.

2. Never make the same mistake twice,
There are so many new ones,
Try a different one each day.

3. A good way to change someone's attitude is to change your own.
Because, the same sun that melts butter, also hardens clay!
Life is as we think, so think beautifully.

4. Life is just like a sea, we are moving without an end.
Nothing stays with us,
what remains is just the memories of some people who touched us as Waves..

5. Whenever you want to know how rich you are?
Never count your currency,
Just try to Drop a Tear and count how many hands reach out to WIPE that-
that is true richness.

6. Heart tells the eyes “See less, because you see and I suffer lot”.
Eyes replied, “feel less because you feel and I cry a lot”.

7. Never change your originality for the sake of others,
because no one can play your role better than you.
So be yourself, because whatever you are, YOU are the best.

8. Baby mosquito came back after 1st time flying.
His mom asked him "How do you feel?"
He replied "It was wonderful, Everyone was clapping for me!"

Now that's What a Positive Attitude….

Interactions with American clients - Useful tips

Interactions with American clients - Useful tips

1.         Do not write "the same" in an email - it makes little sense
to them.

Example - I will try to organize the project artifacts and inform you of
the same when it is done.
This is somewhat an Indian construct. It is better written simply as:
I will try to organize the project artifacts and inform you when that is

2.         Do not write or say, "I have some doubts on this issue"
         The term "Doubt" is used in the sense of doubting someone - we
use this term because in Indian languages, the word for a "doubt"  and a
"question" is the same.
         The correct usage (for clients) is: I have a few questions on
this issue

3.          The term "regard" is not used much in American English. They
usually do not say "regarding this issue" or "with regard to this".
         Simply use, "about this issue".

4.         Do not say "Pardon" when you want someone to repeat what they
said . The word "Pardon" is unusual for them and is somewhat
formal. You can say, 'Please come again or could you please repeat.'

5.       Americans do not understand most of the Indian accent
immediately - They only understand 75% of what we speak and then
interpret the rest. Therefore try not to use shortcut terms such as
"Can't" or "Don't" . Use the expanded "Cannot" or "Do not".

6.       Do not use the term "screwed up" liberally. If a situation is
not good, it is better to say, "The situation is messed up". Do not use
words such as "shucks", or "pissed off".

7.         As a general matter of form, Indians interrupt each other
constantly in meetings - DO NOT interrupt a client when they are
speaking.    Over the phone, there could be delays - but wait for a
short time before responding.

8.       When explaining some complex issue, stop occasionally and ask
"Does that make sense? ". This is preferrable than "Do you understand

9.        In email communications, use proper punctuation. To explain
something, without breaking your flow, use semicolons, hyphens or
paranthesis. As an example:
         You have entered a new bug (the popup not showing up) in the
defect tracking system; we could not reproduce it - although,
         a screenshot would help.
         Notice that a reference to the actual bug is added in
paranthesis so that the sentence flow is not broken. Break a long
         using such punctuation.

10.      In American English, a mail is a posted letter. An email is
electronic mail. When you say "I mailed the information to you", it
means you sent an actual letter or package through the postal system.
The correct usage is: "I emailed the information to you"

11.     To "prepone" an appointment is an Indian usage. There is no
actual word called prepone . You can "advance" an appointment.

12.     In the term "N-tier Architecture" or "3-tier Architecture", the
word "tier" is NOT pronounced as "Tire". I have seen many people
pronounce it  this way. The correct pronunciation is "tea-yar". The "ti"
is pronounced as "tea".

13.     The usages "September End", "Month End", "Day End" are not
understood well by Americans. They use these as "End of September", "End
of Month" or "End of Day".

14.     Americans have weird conventions for time - when they say the
time is "Quarter Of One", they mean the time is 1:15. Better to ask them
the exact time.

15.     Indians commonly use the terms "Today Evening", "Today Night".
These are not correct; "Today" means "This Day" where the Day stands for
Daytime. Therefore "Today Night" is confusing. The correct usages are:
"This Evening", "Tonight".
That applies for "Yesterday Night" and "Yesterday Evening". The correct
usages are: "Last Night" and "Last Evening".

16.     When Americans want to know the time, it is usual for them to
say, " Do you have the time?". Which makes no sense to an indian.

17.     There is no word called "Updation". You update somebody. You
wait for updates to happen to the database. Avoid saying "Updation".

18.      When you talk with someone for the first time, refer to them as
they refer to you - in America, the first conversation usually starts by
using the first name . Therefore you can use the first name of a client.
Do not say "Sir". Do not call women "Madam".

19.     It is usual convention in initial emails (particularly
technical) to expand abbreviations, this way: We are planning to use the
Java API for Registry (JAXR). After mentioning the expanded form once,
subsequently you can use the abbreviation.

20.     Make sure you always have a subject in your emails and that the
subject is relevant.  Do not use a subject line such as HI.

21.       Avoid using "Back" instead of "Back" Use "ago". Back is the
worst word for American. (for Days use "Ago", for hours use "before")

22.      Avoid using "but" instead of "But" Use "However".

23.      Avoid using "Yesterday" hereafter use "Last day".

24.      Avoid using "Tomorrow" hereafter use "Next day".
