Nilanjana Bhowmick’s article on the Barefoot College from the Ecology issue of Motherland is featured in French newspaper the Courrier International today. The piece focuses on Barefoot’s work with the rural women they train to be solar power engineers in their villages. To all you Francophones out there, do take a read.
We love it when people come visit us from other W+K offices, and this is not just because we get to show off how much spicy food we can handle or how we are fine despite the 50-zillion degrees celsius of the Indian Summer. It’s always interesting to know what’s going on in the network and hear all the exciting plans the company has for the future – yes, it’s a lot of exciting plans; and no, we cannot speak about them.
Anyway, look who was here yesterday:
Our COO Dave Luhr! Dave has been here before and this time he didn’t come alone, but with awesome CFO Claudia Valderrama (first time in Delhi office!). They had some really interesting things to say (confidential, of course) and we had the opportunity to ask a lot of questions. Most of them were about travelling. For work, duh. Because The Work Comes First.
We were so excited that to show some proper Indian hospitality we didn’t just bring out beer, chips and peanuts, but we offered ample amounts of mayo dip too.
We hope they enjoyed it as much as we did and that they come back soon.
Stay tuned to see who’s going to be the next visitor to venture in the wild territories of Delhi office. It’s almost hot, the snakes will come out soon.
Disclaimer: Dave and Claudia aren’t the first W+K International Visitors of 2012. Our good friend Spence Kramer was here last month, but we forgot to take pictures of him. How could we, you ask? We really don’t know. But thankfully god created Internet search and we could easily find several pictures of him to steal. We chose this.
Spence, we love you bro, come back soon and we’ll take your picture too.
