Guy Kawasaki’s Mumbai experience

Recently Guy Kawasaki visited Mumbai for 3 days. He calls his visit a mind-expanding experience. Click here to read his post on Mumbai. Be sure to check out the slide show also.

Some of the his observations :

  1. “Traffic safety” is an oxymoron. Luggage isn’t tied down on roof racks. People ride on top of trucks. I saw a family of four on a motorcycle. Having said this, I saw no accidents.
  2. Speaking of traffic, it can take two hours to travel fifteen kilometers there. If you have a choice, try to arrive on Saturday or Sunday. Speaking of arrival, I’ve never been to an airport that’s jam packed at 2:00 am.
  3. India has it’s own version of Amazon.com. At two intersections, kids came up to the car to sell us paperback versions of current business books. We bought a copy of The World Is Flat for $3. Not sure if I should be happy or depressed, but The Art of the Start was not available.
