Every creature has a defence mode. Few have skill and few others have strength. And are used based on the opponents.

As humans, we are skilled. But when it comes to animals we neither know their skill nor their strength which induces more fear. So revealing self enables the other person to anticipate the threat from you. The unknown are more feared.

Do people deliberately reveal your secrets?

Everyone is close to a few people—generally, more than one. 

So when you reveal your secrets to your closest friend, he/she would further share it with another friend closer to him/her and then to another more intimate friend. And that’s how it spreads. Not in deliberation but to share info or a topic to speak of or sympathise about someone’s situation or to find answers from others to the problems.

The moment you speak of elections and voting, you become a brand ambassador of a political party. Should it be so? 

Can’t you be called a citizen who has invoked his responsibilities as a citizen of India and not merely a political activist?

Only 55% of Bangalore voted.

What an irony!

The youngsters feel voting is involving in politics. It is a waste of time to invest in polls. They feel hanging on instal or having fun with friends is more important than voting.

The educated crowd feels there is none worthy. All the parties and politicians are the same. It’s better to watch a Movie. Go on an outing with family, then go and vote.

Finally, these people are commenting on the decision on freebies and electricity tariff raise. You do not have the right to speak if you haven’t done your bit to bring in a leader who understands your basic concern.  If not a problem solver, not a problem creator either would have been a better choice.

We don’t have Buddhas to lead us. But definitely, we have the wisdom to choose between Shivaji Maharaj, Chandragupta Maurya and Aurangzeb. History has given us at least the fundamental wisdom to do so.

Do not fear to commit on deliverables with respect to timelines or performance metrics.

Your journey to success begins from there.

Safe play restricts your potential of exploring self and outgrowing your limitations.

Wash your hands before and after eating anything.

Do not wear your outdoor footwear inside the house.

Change to your home wear clothes once you are home.

Wake up early.

Do not sleep in the evenings at the time of lighting the lamp.

Eat home food and not junk food.

Eat your food in the designated eating area.

Play games which will tire you physically.

There were many a thing we learnt from our parents as default habits.

The irony is today; all those lessons have to be methodically taught, repeating with deliberation to our children.

Again, only if you can follow all the above rules religiously as parents.

People reinvent the same wheel just to have jobs for themselves. Else, they will end up with no job at hand or fewer people in their teams. What a classic way of wasting an organisation’s money! 

They are additionally found being struck on where they are forever.

Few other people will wait for automation from an external agency to streamline the system because they fear owning, correcting and setting up the process because it comes with more effort initially.

And they fear failure and rejection too.

Just imagine the time and money involved in proving their false worth.

Thank you.

Being grateful to someone is a symbol of strength, not weakness. People feel if I’m thanking someone, it’s because I’ve been helped with something I did not possess or was my weakness. So, thereon showing gratitude is accepting my shortfall or weakness on which I fetched some help

No, being grateful is showing courage to seek help. To reduce your trials in obtaining success. And the gesture of gratitude is reciprocation for receiving support in time and motivation for the one who helped you to help you again. And for the others to help you too. Celebrate your gratitude towards people so that more people will be willing to help you.

The life you envy isnt the life that brings happiness to you. 

 The one you have is envied by someone else. Make the best with your life. Ammend the wrong approaches. Cherish the right ones. Ignore the wrong in people. 

Appreciate the right. Life has to go on. Just carry miles of smiles.

New India – A hope. A sense of responsibility. A sense of mutual benefit.

All prevail because of the courage to stand up and own your words and actions, courage to turn wrong into right, courage to show inside out – transparency, courage to make things visible, courage to speak out, and courage to allow deserving and knowledgeable people to carry the baton and run towards the goal. Persistence, Clarity and, sustainability in communication, selflessness motivate the common man to raise the bar in expectations from Govt and bureaucrats.

We are humans but expect others to be God. 

It’s OK to expect consideration, empathy, responsible and ethical behaviour from others. But it’s more important to reciprocate the same way. And here we are in a world where our expectations are,

We must be forgiven, but we won’t forgive others.

Our ignorance must be permissible, whereas others’ ignorance is a crime.

Our irresponsibility is a natural tendency; others’ irresponsibility is intentional.

Our justification goes like, we can do wrong to others, but no one should do evil to us.

Hypocricy was born deep inside our mind. So all our sins and mistakes were allowed by our mind. But, the basic expectation was others should always behave like God.
