I'm Not Saying Mum Had Favourites, But...

we always knew when my oldest brother was coming home for a visit, because suddenly there would be real butter and Nescafé coffee in the house!

And then she'd bake oven scones... which, if any of the rest of us tried to nick when they were hot and fresh out of the oven, we'd get our fingers walloped and told to "Get the hell out of those!"... but The Golden Child could waltz in, go off with 6, and Mum would half-jokingly say "Leave those alone", before going back to her mixing.

Don't get me wrong... I love my brother... but it was funny!

Nice post. It is always good to see people expressing themselves in different ways.

Since you seem to be associated with Management, I would like to suggest you a new magazine - PEOPLE MATTERS started by an ISB Alumni, which was suggested to me by a friend and which I have found very useful.

It deals with various important aspects of management, especially those related to Leadership & People Management, which the mainstream business publications often ignore.

It's also relatively cheap. I guess its annual subscription is about Rs. 400 (US$ 8 approx) which is even less than the cost of a standard Pizza.

Their last issue had an enlightening article by Robert Kaplan (the co-founder of Balanced Scorecard method, if you remember) where he talks about how organisations can create opportunities out of current economic downturn.

I got its subscription online through their website: http://www.peoplematters.in

If you like the magazine, kindly refer it to your friends or colleagues in the organization you work. They may be interested in subscribing to it.

Thanks
