New Year Wishes from a CEO – from the book “Life & Society”


Wish you and your associates A Very Warm and Prosperous Happy New Year!

Our organization has been functional as a small unit with all ups and downs shared together, every moment enjoyed together and every wish cherished together. This bonding has surfaced us from all turmoil of whatever nature we have come across...

Just a matter of banking on incorrect person – From the book, “Life and Society”

Today was again a regular day for me to begin with but proved to be a big eye opener at the end. I could not believe what my faults were but yes I was at the receiving end since it was I who made the choice. I had not shied away from working hard and working coherently but yes I found wanting when the chosen team was needed to deliver. Off course I was to be blamed for my choices. People at helm never see intellect, commitment, limitations or resource crunch but the performance and output. For them, everything can take a back stage but the front tier should be taken only by the performers and proven performers.

I was again asked the same question as what the status of the ongoing project was on which I had the same repeated response since I could not connect the team properly...

The hazard of Immature Discussion

This is a good communication trail to portray how a communication turns into heated debate by missing certain facts and by biased opinion on general norms. The communication took place between clusters of school friends one of whom happen to serve the army who sent some patriotic quotes by army for others to read. The next message trails took place which is narrated exactly as mentioned below.

How advanced we are as a society?

India has seen a lot of upsurge in the name of digitization with people opting for smart hand held devices and wi-fi connectivity to showcase themselves as the acceptance and adaptation to the digital era. We, the poor Indian, fail to understand the very meaning of the word digitization. Our mindset is yet to develop further and our intelligence has mile to catch up to think beyond. We are still seeking solace in the virtual world. Social maturity and adaptation is far beyond our recognition. We often long in luxurious vehicles and we do not know how to drive in a single lane or we are unaware of the existence of any traffic sense. We live in a world of understanding where we only know traffic sense as street red light which we feel privileged to jump very often...

Accidental Chance and Reaction

Life usually remains very hectic throughout the day and even if we need some groceries or vegetables, we prefer post office hour and a super-mall so that we might not have to spend much time looking for things here and there, from stores to stores and rather get everything a single store as we have to rush back to our home for other activities which definitely is not productive. We have grown so busy that we hardly make time for other social activities.

Same is the case with almost every metropolitan citizen who has plenty of time for television and smart phones but not a single minute for neighbors. As usual and being with mass culture, I too rushed to the super-mall on our way to home from office in order to finish off the routine purchase on the way...

The legend of Being Aamir Khan

I have been very fascinated to shortcuts and easy solutions from my childhood. Most of the times, I used to make out my own ways of shortcuts. Slowly I learnt the art of being a good listener, recollecting facts and information, analyzing the facts to come up as close to the point in a factual and realistic manner as possible. Although it needed a lot of patience but the outcomes would generally be equally sweetest. The most satisfying ones are the associated influence that the efforts accompany with and make others appreciate the work. Gradually, I grew a fondness to the researched grey matter which might have one point for one but innumerable ones for others.

Indian film industry is the largest film industry in the world still it lacks freshness and innovations...

The real problem of plenty – Information

The more we get informed, the more we unearth the facts. However, most notable point to make is, do we have time for information assimilation or rather do we have intent to look after facts? Someway down the informatics graph, we very often realize that our problems are not what we have been longing the solutions for as it comes out to be a mere mirage where the more we look for solutions, the more problem keeps running away from our reach or rather the problem resurfaces with new challenges. On our endeavor to understand, ask questions on every possibility and analyze the facts and details, we very often witness that we have been chasing the wrong ones. This is where our most virtuous intellect turns into a fool’s paradise where solutions are in plenty but the real problems are in scarce...

Best line by a sister, “My sister-in-law should be very beautiful. That’s all. I know that rest everything will be managed by my brother”.

Nation like ours gives us a feel and exposure of varied culture, different thinking, unique beliefs and most uniquely every belief has some meaning at one segment but extremely different at other. Whatever might be the difference of belief and opinions but the bond of blood relation is what distinguishes us and identifies us. Every now and then we could witness the strong affinity and affection. Perhaps, this is how our society is bound and held together.

Recently I have been to one of my pals place and was extremely touched by the sense of affection prevailing over there. I could see the siblings of the family very dedicated to each other. They could do anything for each other. There was no sense of you and I...

Bane of Unrealistic Opinion

One of my colleagues was having a very happy relationship when suddenly they faced same situation out of nothing and resulted in strained relationship which was so intense moments before. The couple was having very lovely moments around with hours on chatting and talking over the cell. Although there are various other negativity involved for long use of mobiles but that is immaterial now with the context and scope of this article. Coming back to the point, the couple was very happy and seemed too much involved although both the girl and the boy came from different origin, different background, different region, and different culture and were even different positioned...

Side Effect of Heading to All Views

The most bizarre incident can be considered as this one. One of my dearest pals got married. They were having the happiest life possible. The house was visited very often by the relatives and friends. They were having a great time together. Suddenly one day, one of the relative of the boy suggested that things should be done this way and not that way. Since the boy had some respect for that person, he started pointing out the suggestions of the so called intruders of their happy life. Things started taking turn and they are separately living now. The thing is that we are too fond of giving suggestions and opinions to others that in the process we end up harming them very often. And most unfortunate is that we take pride in such things.
