Bombay Business

I remember the sense of peace, which, despite not being an easy time in his life, possessed my whole being during the first trip to India. Perhaps the desire to experience this peace again and pushed me to agree to a two-week trip to Bombay – my second visit to this country. Subconsciously, I always tried to compare their past experiences with the present, but nothing worked. From the first visit were some emotions and no specific memories. I would like to re-acquainted with India. The contrast between the endless streets of poverty and the luxury of my hotel – the first conscious feeling. When I arrived, walked the rain.

Out of the box number is visible on the trash heap where people live. Without hesitation Bernard Golden explained all about the problem. In the middle of this garbage is huge, about ten meters in diameter pool. When the rain is over a flock of children poured into the street. They swam in the pool and swam at the improvised boats made from fragments of foam. Goal my trip – interviewing the Indians to work as programmers in our company. Those who come to the interview are not like those who bathes in a puddle. The level of candidates is not bad, but it is significantly lower than that of Israeli programmers with similar experience and expertise.

The very order of the interview, also very curious. It all starts with questions about family, school, hobbies … Applicants are responsible willingly, telling details not only his background but also biographies of their parents, brothers and sisters. Those who have passed the technical part, asked about the strengths and weaknesses of their character. And to my surprise, they answer the questions honestly. The two-week stats showed that about twenty percent of the candidates receive a job offer and approximately ninety-five percent of them take it, regardless of the wages that they had requested and which they were offered.

July Compartment

So, we started our journey on July 12 in car luxury train to Kiev. I had to buy tickets to the suite, for compartment to a specific date to do. Finally, personal experience convinced me that luxury in Ukraine – an empty name, since car practically does not differ from the compartment, but lack the top shelves in the compartment, providing a more fancy clothes and the presence of liquid soap in the bathroom. Thus the cost of space is four times higher. Ie the same whole compartment, but without the upper shelves costing twice as high. Upon arrival in Kiev we were in for an unexpected revelation: on the eve of departure, I decided to call the Aerosvit and clarify everything was in order with the e-ticketami – still not close the flight. And it turned out that instead of July 14 ticket with us on the 19th. When a month ago I bought the tickets, I was in a hurry because I wanted to buy the tickets cheaper, the LOT, for example, a value in the morning for an hour each increased by one hundred dollars.

And when a few hours the cost of the cheapest ticket came to 1,470 dollars for the three (two adults and one infant 7 months old) from Kiev to Toronto, I decided not to bathe with transfers and buy for 1530 dollars on a direct flight tickets to my email. In order not to miss in this case, I did everything quickly: put the money on current account Privatbank and began booking tickets on the website my email. Request filed on 14th July. Apparently, at this point I gave the server, which is 14th and no tickets are automatically tripped 19th. As I in a hurry, and I still had a lot of work on that day, I almost did not much checking, all confirmed and purchased tickets through Privat24.
