IT companies of Kerala -

As a silent spectator of incidents in Kerala like many of the Keralites living outside Kerala I was very happy when the news of Dubai Internet city coming up in Cochin was exposed to the world. But because of the political issues unfortunately it got delayed.There are lots of Malayalies who are working in software industry who are eager to come back to Kerala, if get a good opportunity to work over there. Let us hope that that dream will come true as early as possible.The proposed Medical cum IT Township at Kinaloor near Calicut by the Malasian initiative is also bringing hopes to mallus.The proposed Cyber park of Calicut is also a good initiative towards that, but only God knows when it will become a reality.It is known that very small entry-level companies (mostly web design companies) are operating from Calicut, mainly catering the local Customers. It is heard that few of them are getting exposed to clients outside Kerala and let us hope that sooner or later they may grow to the le…

Calicut shopping malls !!

Lots of malls are coming up in Calicut.Most of them hosts multiplexes and global brands.
Still I don't know how many of them are started functioning but according to the friend in Calicut sooner or later Calicut become the 'mall capital ' of North Kerala.
But still I wonder how all these Malls will manage to draw revenue from such a small town like Calicut?
Are they expecting spendthrift IT boys from Bangalore or Gurgaon?
See the list of malls below,

1.Focus Mall-Rajai Road -opposite to moffusil bus station -2.5 LSF
2.Meezan mega mall-Coming up - 4LFT

Cochin smart city

Cochin smart city hopes again rejuvenated on 16th November and Kerala chief minister V.S Achudanandan and Dubai smart city executive director Fareed Abdul Rehman laid the foundation stone.
As they claim this will be the biggest IT park in India once the park is fully functional.I have been to a company which is operating from the media city Dubai for a short assignment of two months.The infrastructure and the facilities is really amazing.
But who knows whether any software giants will be ready to operate from the proposed Cochin smart city?Those who knows the people of Kerala and their eagerness to protest to any 'good' thing by the influence of their political affinity.
Still some political parties are protesting against the smart city project merely to get the political advantage.
Needless to say no one cares about the common man !
