Research Center..Bank..Radio/TV Center…

Wednesday 15th June 2010

A so so day….the Biomedical research center went above everyone head when the speaker got into details of the types of T lymphocytes…we then went to the corner bank to meet the head of the credit card division…Apparently there are only 2  banks which give credit cards…well it is a population of only 7 million people so I guess it is not surprising that only 2 banks are active…

The interesting thing about the cards was that people can choose a design for their card from a predefined set of designs …or even make their own personalized design by uploading personal images(pets/wify…family…favorite painting etc)..and the card company would print this card for them at a nominal cost…don’t think I have seen this in India yet..but though it was an interesting idea…

After the bank visit…we went for lunch…..had some amazing pizza…..with a topping of something white which is a by product of making cheese…ideally I should take a little paper and write these things so I remember them and if I ever see then in an Italian restaurant in India I can order it…will carry a little book from tomo…but alas…hardly anytime left in the Italian part…L

After lunch…we went to the radio and TV studios ….saw the place…took some pictures…the TV studios looked deserted…but we got some nice pics as it is a visual media…the radio was interesting…we say some live recording…..these RJ’s are good…they talk on and on without a script….

Another interesting thing in the radio studio was the  a room which was used to make various sound effect for radio plays….it was interesting….I want to go back to Mumbai and do a RJ course…I think I will be good at talking nonsense non stop…

At the end of the radio visit….it was the best part of the day…..we came to the hotel…and I crashed out for an hour….:-) felt super good…and then it was time to get ready and rush for the presentation about India to the rotary club….

We dressed up in our Indian clothers….I wore something Indo- western…a long skirt…black top…mala…and a scarf….this was the first time we actually dressed up for a presentation as the presentation was after a break….and it was in the hotel that we were living in!

The presentation was rocking…to have a room full of well connected swiss people….listen to you….smile..non..and give you a thumbs up once you finish is a good feeling….:-)

After the presentation….we just had to travel a flight of steps to get back to our rooms…which was a major relief…cause the last few days we have had to take a train and come back to our hotels…so this was a fine luxury….

It was then bonding time within the team…J we played dumb sharades….was good fun…and then I saw one of the artistic team members of mine do a painting in the middle of the night….

Overall a good long day…..a day that ends well…..feels like a rocking day…
