Reading Thresholds of Motivation: Nurturing Human Growth in the Organization by V.S. Mahesh
An analysis of how companies can effectively nurture human growth and potential that combines Western thinking with Eastern philosophical traditions. The examples used are both Indian- and US-oriented. The Indian case studies present fairly common problems, but unique solutions. A great book full of indepth insight on the inherent perfection in humans and how organisations can tap and nurture it in its employees - full of anecdotes and real-life examples.
At times each and everything seems so strikingly similar to what he writes A must read. Got the book by chance at work in our library, when I went to browse through some of the books

Also reading Honour Among Thieves by Jeffrey Archer . . . Not a great story - borrowed it from a colleague !

Also trying to start Alice in wonderland and Don Quixote (unabridged) in e-book format on MS Reader !

READ THE HECK OUT OF IT, EH!

ANY IDEA WHAT TO DO? Got the drivers from Linuxant.com and compiled using the kernel source and yet. . .
Kppp is not detecting /dev/modem seems /dev/modem does not exist - Lots of Googling turned useless . . .

Off to work again from tomorrow, was a bit busy the last week, some bit of pressure, for a module is to given tomorrow.
