Concept of cloud burst Very often, simple incidents in day to day life provide insights into the manner

in which organizations operate. These incidents could slip out of our sphere of learning if we do not periodically pause and reflect on them. However, the pressure on time deprives us of these two aspects, (i.e.) PAUSING and REFLECTION. 'CLOUD BURST' is designed such that it will take only few minutes to read. It will not be a 'periodic' release. As the title suggests, it would be 'Sporadic'. It intends to disseminate a value based message as a food for thought. It is with this objective of providing insights to us as individuals; we shall disseminate some thought from time to time titled as 'CLOUD BURST'. The first copy of 'CLOUD BURST' was released on 6th Dec., 1994. PT&D IC is refreshing the time-honored practice & brings forth the next significant yet a simple message Please go through the articles given below. Regards
