The beginning of 009…


So, after the blistering 2008, 2009 has finally arrived, as I said in my last post, intentionally unintentionally we coin several expectations from a new season, be it connected to business, connected to our family or even the nation… As expected, due to crisis and terror, the year didn’t start with a bash. On an average everyone had a noiseless public display…!!

When I was reading the 17th Anniversary issue of Business today, I came across certain meaningful things various leaders have said, not the political leaders, but our corporate leaders, from the 30 + quotes I read, I found few really inspiring… They are not just quotes but the principles that every life must incorporate in him/her…

Some of them are:

1. Listen to your inner voice

2. Out of every 10 men are born in this world, 9 out of 10 works for the 10th one... prepare to be the 10th.

3. Reach for stars with foot on the ground

4. Results matter, efforts doesn’t.

5. Be successful , but not at the cost of principles

6. It’s better to go wrong with your belief than somebody’s else

Of all those phrases, I liked these, all had some sort of values involved…Every one of us is good at making efforts, we all have similar ingredients in the efforts we do, at times we lack from the best in terms of values…

A crispy post in my interest.. :-)

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks. 
The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr…

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have. 
I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat. 
I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing th…
