  1. Dear Ramesh,

    I was searching the net for saarcuaeexchange website, that is when I happened to view your blog. I was wondering when I read quality minded people, what on earth does that mean? management professionals come up with fancy terminologies every now and then...Though, I did not have the time to read through your site, just happened to have a quick tour and I liked it. For me I am new to UAE. Came for work, and it has been two months in Abu Dhabi. Your site is insightful, interesting and intriguing. When I get time next, I will surely go through the pages and give my comments. Good luck for the movie. Are you planning to have A R Rehman as the music director by any chance?
