Computer–a memory lane:


download (3)

Years back I was in Toronto (Canada) attending a meet on computers leading a delegation as from State Bank of India. All heads of the local organisations, particularly the Banking, attended. Those days the  more stress was laid that is it possible to run the computers where there is no electricity. It was in the context of some representatives raising questions on functionality of computers in the areas where there is no enough of electricity supply or no supply. While interacting with the Chairman of Bank of Canada on the subject I said ‘How come in a country like India where there is no electricity at all in the villages and even urban areas there is large number of bigger cities facing this problem. You are the one who has no such problem. At this point he robustly reacted saying ‘No, no, Mr. Awasthi, there is problem at this end too. Only two years back there was no electricity at all in the whole city for three minutes. Every body laughed and the meeting got adjourned for lunch.
