WHAT IS HAPPENING AT THE END OF THE DAY?

German poet Goethe said, “Never let a day pass without looking at some perfect work of art, hearing some great piece of music and reading, in part, some great book.” We all have missed the best of the life. We all have at least missed 5 great opportunities that can help us in climb out. We all have missed the best of ...

BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER

They met on Boston Common – two men with little in common. One a well-heeled, high-powered attorney, the other a street-schooled, often ignored homeless person. Rob slept on a sidewalk. Peter had a swank condo in the Back Bay. But every morning they would cross paths here in the park and over the course of several months, actually became good ...

Character Will Not Bury

No one can live with pride under the sky and over the surface without the strong character to protect his life and to achieve final objective of the life. You can have 100 definitions of character. If you ask 100 people, “What is character? You may get at least 50 components of character.” I try to focus on the following ...

WHEN WILL INDIA VALUES KNOWLEDGE WORKERS?

Nationally, the average annual pay for professors in U.S. Public Universities is $115,509. Compare to this what Indian professors of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) get annually – is just a paltry $12,000. Although the cost of living in U.S. is higher, the gap in the salaries of the professors needs correction. Is this what the nation builders ...

I‘M KILLING MYSELF

Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra says, “I have been warned by my parents (both are doctors) and well wishers not to let work takes toll on me. And, though I wish to pay heed to their advice, I can’t stop myself from getting excessively involved with the work I take over. Honestly, I drive myself to a point of no return. ...

ARE YOU MULTI TASKER? REALLY!!!

Multi-taskers are considered as the geniuses created by God of the 21st century. Have you ever wondered what is it that multi-taskers do that you can’t? The answer is nothing. Stanford University researchers have challenged a prevailing myth that multi-taskers are better at processing and organizing information. The people who multi-task the most are the ones who are worst at ...

HOPE THERE IS NOTHING STOPPING YOU

There were about 15 of us folks chalking in front of the downtown Berkeley BART station. We started with about ten adventurers and as the momentum increased, we gained more energy, creative inspiration, and people. In the beginning, many pedestrians stopped by us, paused briefly out of curiosity, and for the most part remained rather perplexed by our so-called ‘deviant’ behaviour.  However, ...

ATTACHMENT AND DETACHMENT

I find many managers carry files to home. If they do not carry work to home physically, they bring it psychologically. Mentally, they are with work. They discuss office at home, on cell or with colleagues, or internally with themselves. (Such discussions hardly add value to their lives.) But, they fail to play another role of a father, husband, brother and ...

IN THE RIGHT LIGHT AND TIME, EVERYTHING IS EXTRAORDINARY

To get to the place in Boyle Heights where the spirit of summer lives, I first passed through a neighbourhood of stout little houses, where the streets were too quiet, too lonely and much too dark. Next I passed through a tunnel where the concrete walls gleamed and pulsed ominously with taggers’ spray paint. And then, suddenly, I saw it: ...
