How to recruit the right person for the job.

How to recruit the right person for the job?

Put about 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window.

Then send in 2 or 3 candidates at a time into 
the room and close the door.

Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks, 
Put them in the accounts department.  

If they are recounting them.. put them in auditing .

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks,
put them in engineering.

If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order.. 
Put them in planning.  

If they are throwing the bricks at each other, 
Put them in operations .

If they are sleeping, put them in security.

 If they have broken the bricks into pieces. 
Put them in information Technology. 

If they are sitting idle. Put them in human resources.

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet 
not a brick has  been moved. Put them in sales.

If they have already left for the day. 
Put them in marketing.

If they are merely staring out of the window. 
Put them on Strategic Planning.

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved, then put them in top management

My  thanks to Mr. Madhu Kumta for this article

Aurangzeb's lust for power was insatiable. In this quest he spared no one, imprisoning his own father, and slaughtering his brothers and nephews. He inherited an expanding empire which permitted him to rule the largest area of the Mughal empire's history, before he led it into decline. 

He felt that his actions had probably made him repugnant to the people and his legitimacy to rule would always be questioned. So he adopted a frugal life style and tried to be a good Muslim to appease the powerful clerics, soldiers, noblemen and the muslim public, which would allow him to rule effectively.

Like many other misguided men he came to believed that Islam meant only violent, subjugation and persecution.…

False opinions are like false money

False opinions are like false money, manufactured first of all by evil men and thereafter circulated by honest people who perpetuate the crime without knowing what they are doing.
