THE NEW GLOBAL WE.

City Level Experiment

Posted in Business, New by Harsha on April 7, 2008

One-hit wonder Bhatia is also on the board of Nanocity and is a founder of this idea. It is set near Delhi (a la Gurgaon). From http://www.nanocity.in/

Nanocity spans 11138 acres of flatland located just beyond
the foothills of the Himalayas. It is less than 25 kms east of
Chandigarh and just over 200 kms north of Delhi. Two
seasonal rivers form the eastern and western borders of the
city and two streams trickle within its boundaries. It is well
connected by National highway- 73 ( NH-73 ) and State
highway-1 ( SW-1). It is a public/private partnership between
Sabeer Bhatia Group and the Haryana State Government.

Does Bhatia really think that KP Singh of DLF is going to let him get away with this ambitious project? More importantly, with the millions of square feet in today’s burgeoning “Software IT Parks” business in India, is there not enough space that we now need a whole CITY?

What do you think?

Ever had one of those “oh brother!” moments?

I had one when I read about Hotmail co-founder Sabeer Bhatia’s newest and yet to fail venture SabseBolo.com. But that was not when I went “oh brother”.

I slapped my hand on my forehead when I read this quote from the one-hit wonder’s interview with The Financial Express where he says ““If there are 40,000 people using the conference facility a day, then I can make Rs 40,000 in a day too”

Why does this sound SO familiar???
