Maran’s Sense of Humour

Here is a quote from Mercury News on Maran’s recent trip to the US:

Last week, Maran, India's Cabinet-level minister of communications and information technology, recalled a meeting with venture capitalists during a talk at a gathering at TiE, the Indus Entrepreneurs, a business-networking group.

One VC told him of a visit to India: `` `I was shocked at what I saw in the capital -- a guy taking a cow for a walk,' '' Maran said to laughter at the sold-out event.

``I said, `Did you notice what was in his other hand? He was talking on his cell phone while taking the cow for a walk,' '' the politician said. ``You have to look at India through the eyes of India.''


Although it is good to take credit for some of the developments in IT and Telecom, one should also remember that most of these developments would have taken place even if we didn’t have an IT / Telecom Minister. Maran might have been proactive in getting new investments, but some of this might have happened anyway. I would consider Dayanidhi Maran as a lucky person as he has taken charge at a time when his sector is at an all time high.

  • Anon,
    I have nothing against Dayanidhi Maran. He is definitely better than many other ministers. Maran might have done 10 things, but projects as if he has done 100 things. I feel that 5 out of the 10 accomplishments would have happened anyway. He is a beneficiary of being at the right place at the right time.

    For my eyes, it looks like he was talking on behalf of a country in another country.

    He makes sure he takes credit for things when he is in Chennai. Not in another country :)

  • You are right Kaps. All the anonymous buggers seem to have pounced. All that Maran is interested in is protecting his brother's business and side by side he looks after telecommunication as a part time
