This is who I am…!

The merit of originality is not novelty; it is sincerity.

-Thomas Carlyle

 

 Life will never be perfect, no matter how hard we try.

Yes,we know it well. 

Yet, why we feel so miserable most of the time…!

May be because we all the time want to please someone or everyone...We want to be everything to everyone. We all the time want to meet other people’s expectations.Unfortunately, such expectations unconsciously take on a life of their own.

We are swayed by the channels of possibilities…because this is what everyone is expecting from us.We maneuver hard to get qualified in the eyes of others. We are obsessed to seek approvals. Our search is for acknowledgments. All what we do is for others. Today we are chasing a world which is literally edging-out our true self. Ironically, our so called projected front is full of synthetic content. It is a never ending rat-race of living up to what we think other people expect from us. Such enslavement to other’s endorsement thwarts the full expression of the real self from being out in open. Moreover, our very decision to continuously oblige their expectations reinforces them to force-fit us in their mould. We are not a label on a billboard. So stop trying so much. There are most definitely many out there who do not like YOU or what you DO.

The Tipping Point for the Indian Entrepreneurs…!

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”

 -LaoTzu 

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.”-William Shedd. Entrepreneurs are like ships...fronting rough ocean and blustery weather in their voyage to realizing dreams.

I do not think there will be anyone who would strike down the obvious fact that we are almost at the gateway of the Asian Century.The dawn of a new era of global power and energy hustled by emerging Asian middle class is eventually likely to polarize the world.

Yet, in some senses, the voyage for India is going to be bewildering.  India has not come out of the economic rubbles of last few years of indolent regime.

Although for this fiscal year, our GDP may brush little plus of 5.5% but other economic parameters, like, government and corporate debts, inflation, pitiable infrastructural support, daunting energy famine, hysterical inflation, and massive sleazy scandals, are still lecherously ogling at us. The only hope possibly is the decisive victory of the new government. At least, government has a comprehensive mandate to legislate pervasive reforms.

The obvious evidences are the opening up of foreign direct investment (FDI) in several sectors, Standard & Poor’s raised credit rating, unprecedented support of hoi polloi to Mr. Modi, and anticipated administrative, economic, and fiscal reforms. I am sure India is going to be the most dazzling investment destination for many. While government appears to be constructively disposed towards strengthening Indian business milieu, it is equally inclined to encourage foreign investments in a big way.We are definitely picking up the momentum.

Things are changing rapidly…But, we are still not out of the mess.
