Talk Chineasy welcomes a new guest in April: Guruduth Banavar. Guru Banavar is the vice president and the chief science officer at IBM. Aside from work, Guru is an active musician! Recently, he released an album “Rise 8 times,” which is a reference to a Japanese proverb “You may fall seven times, but rise eight times.” When life knocks you down, stand back up; what matters is not the bad that happened, but what one does after.
