Do Tamilians experience difficulty in other parts of the world since the majority of them do not have surnames?
My surname according to the passport is Madurai Ananthakrishnan. When I first visited the US, I was filling out the form they hand out on the aeroplane before you land. Since there was a fancy inflight video instructing us on how to fill the form, I was taking it very seriously. This is when I realized the boxes in the surname column ran out and I was very worried about it. The forms were not that big a deal, but that's when I seriously wished they had clubbed my middle name (Madurai) with that of the first name like how it is supposed to be. It is extremely difficult when you are trying to resolve an issue over phone. Customer services with westerners get so tired typing it out- Imagine spelling out M for Mother, A for Alpha and so on, especially on an international call.I think it is a big inconvenience in all aspects to elaborate initials and make your name horrendously complicated. A meek M.V Varadharajan could transform into a formidable Manamadurai Venkatasubramanian Varadharajan in the process of expansion. I suppose our naming schema was not meant for western life.It used to be a common practice in Tamil families to name their children after their parents which could run into a recursive loop. For example, my father's name is Ananthakrishnan Srinivasan while his father's name is Srinivasan Ananthakrishnan and so on. I broke the loop by being a girl. Now people have ridiculously complicated names that fuses in all the fashionable names that they like. Add a dab of numerology and you will end up something like "Aaaarya", "Rawi". It is very important to decide what you want to be called as and then put that in your passport. Else, you will have tiring, bloodsucking bureaucratic hassles later, if you need to change your name in your passport or visa as Ramakrishnan Krishnan has mentioned in his answer.That said, there are so many celebrities with Village Name & Father's first name as their surnames. Example: M. S. Subbulakshmi, Vilayanur S. Ramachandran. Why, there is even P. Sundararajan who later came to be known as Sundar Pichai.
What are the best ways to encourage my sales team to keep their CRM data clean?
I’d say that the first thing you need to do to is make sure that your team knows the cost that they as individuals and you as a company feel when data is input without care. If they don’t understand the real problem with bad data, they might not be invested in being part of the solution.This also means that you have to really understand what the cause of your ‘dirty data• is. You have to undergo a thorough evaluation of where the problem is coming from and what steps you need to take to clean your data. Once you have a plan in place, you can generate buy-in by making clear your reps• responsibility to keep their data clean, incentivizing clean data with rewards, or disincentivizing dirty data with punishment (Carrot or stick is your call!).Once you’ve identified the problem, got buy-in from your team, and are ready to implement a solution, here’s some advice you can follow.There is more detail in this article • Dirty Data in your CRM? What's the real cost?, but this will give the highlights of how to have your team keep your data clean.One thing to note is that fraudulent data can be caused by humans and/or bots, so different causes will mean different solutions. If your team is creating fraudulent data to meet metrics, you have a bigger problem on your hands.Either way, as you work to detect fraud and dirty data, bots will get more intelligent and beat your systems until you outsmart them again, and the cycle continues. The human error that causes accidental dirty data will always be an issue, but there are several ways to drastically reduce the impact of dirty data on your business.1. Start With The Data You HaveUndergo an extensive scrub of your data. This will require an investment in time, headcount, and software, but getting your existing data as accurate as possible will help establish a quality baseline for the data that continues to stream in. Making clear the responsibility of your teams to keep the data clean from this point forward is key to long-term success.2. Implement A Data Quality ProgramIdentify the roles or programs you need to have in place in order to better find and filter fraudulent data, consistently scrub existing data, and house data safely. This part will likely require some help from your IT department, or from an outside consultant. Individuals on your team with these responsibilities have to understand their importance and be held accountable for egregiously bad data.3. Consider UX FixesRun through your customer-facing offers and forms to identify potential problem areas for accidental dirty data. Partner with UX experts to find ways to improve the customer experience and make it more difficult for users to commit errors.4. Make Data A PriorityUnless our titles have the term in them, most of us don’t think of our roles as data-oriented. But the truth is that anyone who works in sales is in a data-facing role. Get your whole team on board with the importance of making accurate data a fiscal and scheduling priority.Hope those thoughts give you some insight on how to get your team to recognize the importance of keeping data clean!

What did you notice during an interview that made you not want the job?
This answer is going to make me sound like a spoiled brat, but here goes…I wasn’t actually looking for a new position, but I was contacted by a company for a position in a company about 5km from my house. The company was in the most beautiful office park, and I often commented that I wished the company I worked for would move there. Close to home and beautiful. There was a lake with ducks and Egyptian geese.So when they asked me to come in and have an interview, I agreed.The first interview turned out not to be an interview at all. They just wanted me to write a test. I suppose they wanted to make sure I could do the job before offering me the position, which is fine but I wanted to make sure the position was something I wanted first anyway.The second interview, was more what I wanted. After answering all of their questions, I got to ask mine.Mel: Do you have flexi-hours?Interviewer: No, but if you travel from very far away, you can start at 7am and leave at 4pm rather than the usual 8am - 5pm.Mel: Can I work from home at all?Interviewer: No. Never.Mel: What makes this a nice company to work for?Interviewer: We have a pool table. Sometimes after work we will play pool. Also the directors are really nice and we aren’t afraid to talk to them.Mel: Is that all?Then I told them about the company where I currently work.We have a pool table and 2 ping-pong tables, and a foosball table, and a dart board. Also Jenga, Chess, Pictionary, Scrabble and various other board games. We play sometimes after work, or during lunch, or when the company decides to host a tournament, or that time when there was a power failure, or when a director has challenged you.We have flexi-hours. I can start work at 6am and leave at 3pm and miss all the heaviest traffic. I also get to work from home 2 days a week.One day a year, we can spend doing work in our community. Some people work at a school, in an impoverished area nearby. Some of us go and work at an animal shelter, in that same area. The company arranges it for us, and our pay gets affected, not at all. And volunteer work is so good for the soul.The company pays a catering company to make lunch for everyone at work, every day. They also prbread for us to make ourselves breakfast, if we want. With the bread, they also prmargarine, jam, peanut butter and other such things.On Fridays, at 2pm, we can buy beer and cider at cost (actually rounded down) from the company and drink it at our desks.And as far as having directors that aren’t scary, ours sit with us at lunch.I told you, I’m a spoiled brat. No way would I go and work for that company when I’m already working for such a great place.Sure, sometimes I get grumpy about how hard we have to work. Especially since we are geared towards being able to work from home, it means that even when you’re home and relaxing in front of the TV, you could get a call to log on and fix some urgent defect.It’s still worth it. I bet the people at that other place have to work hard too, but they don’t get to sip on a beer while sitting at their desks on a Friday.
How do I deal with rude flight attendants?
Last time I flew in an airline -I won’t name,the flight attendant forgot to get me my meal. By the time the trolley reached me, the non-vegetarian meal rack was empty. I was told that they will get me the meal in 5 minutes, I told them even if it’s a vegetarian meal it’s fine. It wasn’t really an issue for me as I don’t like troubling them but they insisted that they have more fish packs and they will get me one.My wait was for half an hour, with them avoiding me,avoiding my call and not even looking at me. They didn’t even get me water. I got pissed. I literally raised my voice the next time with an “Excuse me, are you deaf?” and the flight attendant was like, “yes,mam can I get you something?” and my soft reply was,”YES! Your complaint book and it should not take half an hour, I want it right now.”That led to some prompt working and them apologizing for some 15 times in next 15 minutes, they offered me meals (which I refused) and goodies (I refused them as well) and as I didn’t accept their peace offering or apology, in the end, after our landing the ground staff met me and after another series of apologies they refunded my ticket.It’s not about the food,it’s about their non-caring attitude. I have paid for that seat and that meal with hard earned money. If one form of meal is not there, I understand it’s not their fault but if they refuse to get me any meal then I can get nasty as well.So, asking for the complaint book work wonders, do it the next time they harass you.PS I am not proud of what I did but it was needed.
Import/Export: Do you have to fill out a customs form every time you ship a product from the USA to the rest of the world?
Somebody has to fill out a customs form every time a product is imported into a country for commercial use. It can be the seller or the buyer but even if the import is duty-free there will be a form to complete. I'm sure there are automated solutions so a form doesn't have to be completed manually but the cost may not justify the benefit.
How and what forms does a customs broker fill out for imported goods?
Omg I really don’t know :)I am a permanent client of brokers from https://clearit.ca/ , they usually solve all the details so that I don’t need to worry about any forms and other things.I will subscribe to this question, I am really interested now.
If India is so good, why do Indians leave India?
I would answer that using two words -”MOUKA” (Opportunities) and “THAPPA” (Seal of approval).But wait! There is more.Apart from obvious reasons of high-pay and opportunities, let me add a few more points, quoting examples of people who actually migrated from India.Who is he? - Venkatraman ramakrishnanWhat did he accomplish? - Awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “studies of the structure and function of the ribosome.”What would he be doing had he stayed in India? - Would have probably become a researcher in a central institute, but would never have got his research funded “because he is a chemist and ribosome is a topic of biology.”Who is he? - V S NaipaulWhat did he accomplish? - Awarded Nobel Prize in literature.What would he be doing had he stayed in India? - Struggling to get his work published. Probably also being ridiculed behind the back for claiming that his works far far supersedes those of the Chetan Bhagat.Who is he? - Dr. Har Gobind Khorana:What did he accomplish? - Awarded Nobel Prize in medicine for “Interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis”What would he be doing had he stayed in India? - Probably a professor in one of our universities, checking practical copies and complaining about “the system” for not giving sufficient funds for a project.Who is he? - Amartya SenWhat did he accomplish? - Awarded Nobel Prize in Economics for “his contributions to welfare economics.”What would he be doing had he stayed in India? - Would have made his parents proud for working in a “stable, well-paying government job” as an accountant in a bank.Who is he? - S ChandrasekharWhat did he accomplish? - Awarded Nobel Prize in Physics "For his theoretical studies of the physical processes of importance to the structure and evolution of the stars”What would he be doing had he stayed in India - A professor in a university, perhaps a popular one because he could not only solve each and every numerical but could tell exactly which book it was from, which chapter and even page number.In short, we don’t get the opportunities, the infrastructure and the flexibility in India as compared to west.I never mean any disrespect to any of the laureates or to my country, what I want to say is that there are perhaps hundreds of Amartya Sen and S Chandrasekhar out there, who are forced everyday to kill their dreams and get settled.Once you go to west, you can’t be pressurized to follow the beaten path.You are ENCOURAGED to look at things from a different perspective. And a “stable, secure life” is NOT encouraged. Risk takers are NOT frowned upon.But apart from the obvious I would put one more reason - RECOGNITION.Yes, at times that “THAPPA” from the west creates more impact than all your qualities, your dedication and your good nature put together, even to your closest ones.Remember this man?Of course you do.Did you know him before 2022 when he got that “THAPPA” of Nobel?Wasn’t he working already?Aren’t we supposed to know him because he lives among us?WhyArre THAPPA yaar THAPPAPerhaps this is why “NRI Ladka” is such a fad among upper middle class fathers looking for bridegrooms for their daughters.Forget Mr. Satyarthi, do you know this man?Whenever I talk to someone about Swami Vivekananda, the first thing people mention is his Chicago Address.Seriously? Among all his contribution to philosophy, the only thing people find worthwhile is an address to Americans.I am sure it was phenomenal, but see, even Swami Vivekananda’s biggest accomplishment is his “THAPPA” from west.Forget even him, remember this man?One of the greatest man to walk on the Earth.Do you know that his methods were unique and he was the one who made our freedom struggle mass-based and not limited to elites.But do you know one of the reasons he was able to gain such a wide popularity in congress ranks, so soon after his return from Africa in 1915, was “his contribution and works in Africa.”I am sure Mahatma Gandhi would have been a great figure even without those credentials. He would have eventually achieved the respect and recognition he deserved.But even for him the “THAPPA” acted as a launch pad, even if it was not from west.Need I say more?Edit 1: BTW this was Saurabh Kumar RoyI am sure you will find my other answers insightful as well.Saurabh Kumar Roy's answer to Why is Narendra Modi making more foreign visits?
What happens to all of the paper forms you fill out for immigration and customs?
Years ago I worked at document management company.  There is cool software that can automate aspects of hand-written forms.  We had an airport as a customer - they scanned plenty and (as I said before) this was several years ago...On your airport customs forms, the "boxes" that you 'need' to write on - are basically invisible to the scanner - but are used because then us humans will tend to write neater and clearer which make sit easier to recognize with a computer.  Any characters with less than X% accuracy based on a recognition engine are flagged and shown as an image zoomed into the particular character so a human operator can then say "that is an "A".   This way, you can rapidly go through most forms and output it to say - an SQL database, complete with link to original image of the form you filled in.If you see "black boxes" at three corners of the document - it is likely set up for scanning (they help to identify and orient the page digitally).  If there is a unique barcode on the document somewhere I would theorize there is an even higher likelihood of it being scanned - the document is of enough value to be printed individually which costs more, which means it is likely going to be used on the capture side.   (I've noticed in the past in Bahamas and some other Caribbean islands they use these sorts of capture mechanisms, but they have far fewer people entering than the US does everyday)The real answer is: it depends.  Depending on each country and its policies and procedures.  Generally I would be surprised if they scanned and held onto the paper.   In the US, they proably file those for a set period of time then destroy them, perhaps mining them for some data about travellers. In the end,  I suspect the "paper-to-data capture" likelihood of customs forms ranges somewhere on a spectrum like this:Third world Customs Guy has paper to show he did his job, paper gets thrown out at end of shift. ------  We keep all the papers! everything is scanned as you pass by customs and unique barcodes identify which flight/gate/area the form was handed out at, so we co-ordinate with cameras in the airport and have captured your image.  We also know exactly how much vodka you brought into the country. :)
Why would Brexit be better under the WTO rules (which doesn't cover services anyway)?
There are ways that Brexit can be successful, but WTO rules is not one of them.WTO rules are not effective at preventing non-tariff barriers. For example, when I worked in a US bank, we had to set up an office in the EEA in order to lend to companies in the EEA. It is against EU law for a US bank to lend directly. This isn’t to do with US regulations being different from EU regulations (in fact they are coordinated globally). It is just the EU law, and the US has not challenged it. The UK would face the same barriers that the US faces.There are upsides to Brexit[1], and these will offset the negative impact of those non-tariff barriers. My preference is for a close relationship with the EU (with fewer non-tariff barriers), but I can see someone with different preferences might prefer a Canada-style deal (with more non-tariff barriers).What strikes me as entirely without merit is an argument that on top of all these non-tariff barriers, it would be fine to introduce WTO tariffs. Why on earth would anyone on either side want that? The EU have already said they don’t want tariffs, so it would be a spectexample of UK self-harm to pursue this.Additionally, it lacks democratic legitimacy. The Conservative manifesto[2] promised a “deep and special relationship” with a “comprehensive free trade and customs arrangement” and a “frictionless [Irish] border as possible”. There would need to be a new manifesto and a new election before it could be said a WTO solution would respect what the people voted for.However, it seems likely that a Conservative party proposing WTO rules would lose even more support than “no deal is better than a bad deal” lost them in 2022. There are too many people who normally vote Conservative who would either not turn up, or vote for a different party. Unless there is a change in public opinion (which would take time), that would likely result in a Labour government.Footnotes[1] Daniel Burn's answer to In the media, we mostly hear about the anti-Brexit arguments.
