No one can travel to the other end of the decision before executing them

No one can travel to the other end of the decision before executing them. It is only the strong conviction, undying positivity and immense efforts which convert decision to success.

A journey of friendship….progress in approach with age.

A journey of friendship….progress in approach with age.
When you are in junior school, friendship is being and enjoying a relation which is not bound by limitations, priorities, expectations and rules. You dont even know who is a friend and who is your enemy. You are going to play, fight and have fun with all in the school, colony or apartment. At times you also involve parents, they fight on your behalf and create distance between each other and ruin their impression. But you are again back with your friend. There is no memory maintained for good or bad. Fun and company to play are the only criteria on which friends are made. And since communication is on daily basis, and no great expectations so life and people (friends ) are beautiful. You dont think before you speak.Your anger, happiness, appreciations all are momentary. So no baggage carried.

Then you go to the next phase college, you start developing emotions for others’ actions. You start categorising and labelling people as good, bad, closest, not so close and further reciprocate in accordance. Your memory card starts popping up their actions from past making you judge people on their long term sustained actions, behaviour. You avoid people based on compatibility issues. You want people to be a part of your problem and fun, both.

Thereon you move to next phase, your career, you lose touch with many of your friends from school and college. But when you interact with them you relive that approach in words alone. But now, when you make newer friends, you are very cautious about their status, their background, judgemental and calculative at the same time. You have limitations, expectations, rules and priorities well defined against each friend of yours. Relations get formal. Assumptions are made about what other thinks, the behaviours are judged. Lesser communication leads to misunderstanding. You think before you speak. Further distance and extremely busy life adds to the relation turning out more formal.

Words can be fabricated. Actions can rarely be.


Actions speak loud and clear and are to be read .Words are always misguiding and used to capture people emotionally most of the times by wrong people.

Words can be fabricated. Actions can rarely be.

Further, showing consistency in fabricating actions takes a lot of toil over oneself. So people resort to words to impress and influence others.

Be impressed with consistent actions of people. Actions which are for your good, helpful and supportive. Never get carried away with words. Words like looks, may be deceptive.

New Normal : Six months of covid, Three years of Economic slow down, Taking us 20 years ahead or 20 years behind?

New Normal means what?

It means
Nothing will be normal like how it used to be earlier. But still we do not have a choice than to adapt and accept.
Social life, Professional life nothing will remain the same. Even after vaccination is invented. The impact of Covid 19 on the Economy will take the legacy of Covid 19 ahead for few more years. And thereafter we will find our own old ways of life strange and alien like how now we feel about the lifestyle of 20 years back.

Who is standing between our success and us?

Our trust in us.
Our efforts to the required extent.
Our ignorance nourished by us.
Our reasoning that ‘We cant do than the fact that We wont do.

How stable and sustainable planning to opt for the future?

Indirectly, more stringent control on the people, and better initiatives by Govt. Hopefully, the implementation also turns out successful. I just predicted this in my blog on May 2nd and here we go…..
Three months pandemic -lockdown effect impacting a forthcoming three years functionality and pulling a few sectors two to five decades behind. How stable and sustainable planning to opt for the future?

• Landbank being developed in Gujarat. Tamil Nadu, Andhra to offers twice the land for companies opting out of China.
• UP Govt appealing new ordinance on labor reforms.
• India already preparing the road map to accommodate business out of China.
• More investors, more companies to be welcomed to India to revive the economy and make a golden opportunity out of the situation.

Though sad, a very historical initiative by UP Govt to
• Give holiday for most labor laws for the next 3 years
• 72 hrs engagement per week and 12 hours working/day as normal
• No minimum wages applicable
• Hire and fire at Company’s will.

Will there be a cascading effect upwards with these norms. Will there be a better engagement of well-paid resources too Or will only the lowest rung suffer?

COVID Scenario

COVID Scenario
Everyone’s hypocrisy surfaced.

Here we get to know, who valued lives, people’s security, money, or their wrong decisions as Govts and Leaders in the world.

But we as people (society), do we value our own lives, Do we take precautions, follow social distancing, save for future, better our performance to support our company, economy, and country?
So eventually, we also got to know how we as people behaved. We expected others to care for us and did not deal with ourselves logically for our benefit.

State Govts fighting over who would bear the travel cost of migrant workers
Projects, Manufacturing plants given green signal along with migrant workers to travel back home. Who is expected to work in factories, projects, and make them functional?

The economy needs to be supported by sympathizing with people or supporting the assignments of these sectors? How is our lockdown exit-plan or was there any plan in place?
Was our focus 360 degree or we just thought we had a magic wand?

We haven’t learnt our lessons. The crowd outside the liquor shops, the way we gave reasons to authorities to go out for unimportant things, the way we reacted to health workers and journalists, the way we cared for the poor as human beings.

We complained of no food, no job and there we were paying double the amount for liquor or standing in long queues in the hot sun.
Any society has a mix of good and bad. But if not for such scenarios will we ever be able to hold a mirror to ourselves and understand ourselves as a society?

There might be a fierce battle for us ahead, why not be happy about what we felt than being worried about what is approaching us in the future.

It is very disgraceful to be thankful about the lockdown. There have been traumatic conditions for many of them out there but, this phase made us wiser,

• Brought us more closer to our family,
• Gave our children more time with us,
• Addressed most of our complaints like long travel hours, unhealthy diet, lack of time to live our hobbies
• Spoke to our parents, family, and friends pretty often
• We understood how our spouses are so occupied with their work at home and office as we got to see each other’s work closely.
• We learned to respect each other’s work.
• We probably did many of the things which we longed to do for years now
• We understood the definition of sufficiency.
• We understood dependencies on domestic help where created by us
• We understood the difference between need and greed.
• We understood luxuries and necessities.
• This phase gave us an opportunity to look inside us.
Of course, there might be a fierce battle for us ahead, why not be happy about what we felt than being worried about what is approaching us in the future.

The only thing that won’t change about the future is, it always houses our fears about it.
