Awesome Bharat


On this Republic day of 26th January, let us all step back for a moment and admire some 
awesome facts about a magnificient land. We the people have to listen to own hearts and 
rediscover our greatness to build a better India and a better world

The challenges we face our immense and probably more than anywhere else in the world. 
We are surrounded by an unruly, violent and dangerous Pakistan, a beligerent and 
aggressive China and a ravaged Myanmar.

 Yet it is even more astounding that the most diverse nation on Earth, with hundreds of 
languages, all religions and cultures, is not only surviving, but thriving.

Bharat the nation we know as India.
Land of spirituality, tolerance, compassion, diversity, wisdom and wealth,

  • where  Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism were born, which is the second largest Muslim nation on Earth;

  • where  Christianity has existed for 2000 years;

  • where  the oldest Jewish synagogues and Jewish communities have resided since the Romans burnt their 2nd temple;

  • where  the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile reside;

  • where  the Zoroastrians from Persia have thrived since being thrown out of their ancient homeland;

  • where  Armenians and Syrians and many others have come to live;

  • where  the Paris-based OECD said, was the largest economy on Earth for 1500 of the last 2000 years, including the 2nd  largest, only 200 years ago;

  • where  3 Muslim Presidents have been elected,

  • where  a Sikh is Prime Minister and the head of the ruling party a Catholic Italian woman,

  • where  the past President was also a woman, succeeding a Muslim President who as a rocket scientist is a hero in the nation;

  • where  a booming economy is lifting 40 million out of poverty each year and is expected to have the majority of its population in the middle class, equal to the entire US population, by 2025;

  • where  its optimism and vibrancy is manifested in its movies, arts, economic growth, and voting, despite all the incredible challenges and hardships;

  • where  all the great powers are vying for influence, as it itself finds its place in the world.

My countrymen and women, I congratulate you on this Republic  day. I send to you my 
salutations and pray for your individual happiness and our collective success.

     Jai HInd

  2. Dear Rahul,

    Thanks for your kind words.
    Can you post your comments directly on the blog page so as to start a dialogue thread so others can join in?
    At the moment I am entering it under my name which is not really encouraging others because it looks like I am talking to myself.
    Talking to myself is actually quite helpful for me. However many people may not understand it as yet.

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.

What are SOP or Standard operating procedures?

I wear many turbans, serving as a teacher, consultant and advisor to many organisations most of whom are quite sincere in their efforts to improve performance and profitability. 
Sincerity is key for success, as are the attitudes, skills and knowledge, of people. Yet organisations fail to succeed primarily because of a lack of good and relevant management systems.
Good or bad, every functioning organisation evolves a culture a system and a way of doing things. 
Good systems are well thought out and are relevant. They delight customers, improve morale and helps the bottom line. Customers are usually delighted by high quality of products and services, and prompt deliveries.
Their design is robust and effective, preventing problems and facilitating rapid correction with minimum heartache and headache. 
Bad systems on the other hand lead to bottlenecks and paralysis, caused by too much centralising of work or a large lumbering bureaucracy.  
Centralising occurs when organisations and systems r…
