Failure is the fertile soil where the flowers of success blossom

Who doesn’t want success. That’s ok. The problem starts when one expects a continuous trajectory of successes. Failure is something that is frowned upon by the society and colleagues. Sharing the story of failure with others is not easy, so we tend to hide them, as they never happened. We need to change that, at individual level and cultural level, because most successes are built on failures only.

All of us have failed at one point of time or another. When we had been learning cycling, did we made it in the first attempt. Failure in a battle is ok as long as we are in the war. One of the reasons for failure, may be is, when one tries to do what is beyond his/her comfort zone or present skill set. And that’s good. These failures are the fertile soil where the flowers of success blossom. We as a society are at this place, because someone somewhere in history tried the impossible. Its your turn.

Four tools for bringing ‘Change’

As an individual all of us can use four tools to share our thoughts, ideas, dreams… with others.. for adding value to the society … for changing the world…they are..

Word, Picture, Video and Code

* WORD : The words we share with others.. via writing..a blog, Facebook wall update, twitter … through any means (laptop, mobile …) … Earlier called it Pen, Kalam… I would call it  WORD…the power of words… Share.. e.s.p. the things worth sharing…

* PICTURE: Equal to 1000 words…   it touches the heart directly… don’t be shy to flash your mobile camera… to capture the moments…that can inspire 1000s of others…

* VIDEO: A short two minute video shared on YouTube or else… would repeat your message to 1000s of others… day and night… for the rest of your life… why not use this tool…

* CODE: Code represents the SYSTEM… It can be Linux… it can be Walmart…means making  a system… how a thing will work… It can be Facebook/android app… a law like Janlokpal… it can be for your home… or for the universe… draft/make it and share with others…

Best wishes to you for bringing the Change that is needed…

Sarkari naukri

I don’t know about other’s, but i am amazed to see the love that the parents of most middle class families have towards a ‘Sarkari naukri’. For them there are two worlds one is ‘sarkari’ the other is private. ‘Achcha sarkari naukri me hai, konsa department… bahut badhiyaa’ and on the other side ‘hmm… private me hai.. kya baat saarkari ke kosish nahi ke… koi jack wack lagaya hota’. Entreprenership seems to be a far off thing is this ecosystem. If someone jumps into being an entrepreneur, the majority thinks… ‘ ye to paagal ho gaya :)’ And there is also an interesting thing, the love of the country towards IAS (Indian Administrative Services). I don’t know what’s there is in that particular post, as the majority aspires to be one. (due respect to the post of IAS), I am not discussing the ones who are IAS, but the masses who aspire to be one. Does the best brains of India deserve to be an IAS or something else, there are plenty of options – scientists, entrepreneurs etc. Diverting these minds to which field is good for India, is the question
