HERE IS SOME RECKLESS INDIAN


YOGA ON CHAIR



Yoga is the boon given by  Rishis in India to live with vitality. Those who complain with no time, could now do it even on their chairs.  The above chart shows the asanas you could do on the chair.      

When your body becomes flexible like a rubber, it means that each of your cell could give optimum performance leading to robustness and decease-free life. 

LIVE WITH HOPE - A SHORT VERSE


Last week (November, 23, 2015) , when I read a news item which reported  suicide of  25 year-old woman at Yamuna Bank Metro station in  Delhi,  it ached my heart deeply.    The woman named Anjali ended her life out of depression over a failed wedding match.

By jumping in front of a train entering the station, the woman's death was instantaneous.  The manner of her ending life speaks her deep frustration.   Losing hope precipitated  her to wrap up  the earthly journey.   When I reflected on the incident, my pen wrote this light verse :

Don't sink
but sync with time.

Life is precious
So, be cautious 

Time is set automatically
for everyone's flight;

So don't be haste the end 
with your  own manoeuvre !

IRONMAN OF INDIA

In this world of achievers, only few would carve out a path for others.    

Most of us dismiss at first sight  this near impossible feat.  Some laggards even cast serious doubts of those who achieved it. But truth must  told unperturbedly.

Swimming, cycling and running individually are very energy intensive workouts.   Anybody could rarely think of achieving something with a mix of these three disciplines.

INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT

Image result for inclusive development
You can't blame anybody blindly.  There must be some cogent reason behind it  and I always wish anybody should  make only constructive criticism.

While doing so,  statistics may help you.

When it comes to statistics, they  always grab my attention. Because, they speak louder than words.   Over the years, I collected vast amounts of  statistics, not with an eye to write but to enlighten myself on issues of  my  interest.

The quality of life is weighed  through growth and development.  To know, where a particular State stands on these metrics, surveys always help us.   The governments must continuously work at macro  and micro level  so that  they help people in giving high standard of living.

APP-DRIVEN CLEANLINESS IN DELHI

Logo
These days for each problem, there seems to be a  solution from technology.

Though, E-governance has brought  some perceptive change in the citizen services,  India still has to travel a lot to bring it on missionary mode.

Some States are just  making baby-steps in this direction, but Delhi  is virtually on sprint with the creation of Android App called Swachh Delhi.  It aims to get the garbage cleared from  the roads and public places on war-footing.  

Partnering with citizens directly like this is a new idea and hope this drive helps city government   to provide  garbage-free roads.

THIS IS TRULY AN URBAN APP


Cover art
Urban life has its own sort of needs.  Because the pace of life here dictates  to run with time without loosing  action.

Imagine that the end-user is not connected with service provider which endangers both equally.

Technology by playing a catalyst role not only forge a better relationship but helps to improve the quality service at affordable price. 

I am living in South Delhi for the last five years and whenever I call a local electrician even for a small job,  he charges me a whopping Rs.300/- per visit and I have no option but  to endure the ordeal silently.   In another instance, I had to wait for a plumber for 24 hours to replace my burnt-water pump.   Getting AC mechanic in time is equally distressing  especially in the peripheral areas in mega cities in India. 

 But the democratization of information through Internet give a real  power to  this virtual world which is growing exponentially.   The buzz  now is, app-driven solutions to the services across the spectrum that confront daily life.

When success embraces you, you become a overnight celebrity.   The quantum of success decides the celebrity status. Then youth worship you and you will be in limelight for all good reasons.

The advantage for screen personalities is that they get quick validation from society than any other section of people.

But for a writer, the formula is little different.  Here the gestation period is too long unless an icon in the society vouch for the fact.  In business field also, people get fame reasonably in short period.

The pulse of society is driven mainly by youth.  Being blessed with one of the highest youth population in the world, India is a perfect barometer to reflect the trend of youth.   Youth are mainly influenced by  cinema,  so the screen-world mirrors the trend of society.

ELEVEN COMMANDMENTS OF LIFE


Book Review :

The beauty of Self Help books is the contextual insights that help to improve your productivity through self effort.  It is raising your bar of efficiency little by little and virtually there is no upper limit.

Live sessions of personality development gurus  will no doubt transform you by waking up from slumber and chugging your engine to success.

Competition, success are now a days more synonymous  with Private Sector in India where the employees need to hone their skills to fight everyday battles of professional life.  You need to adopt thousands of tricks to impress the customer.   The sales professionals work day is very energy intensive and unless they show up the results at the end of the day, their survival in the organisation becomes questionable.   For people of such background, this book is a minefield.

I bought this book in May, 2013 and my intention to buy the same  is to understand Santosh Nair's core principles for life maximization.      His expertise lies in sales, leadership and entrepreneurship skills.   He is a known corporate trainer whose target work is productivity enhancement.

                                           This water-colour painting had been made by me in 1990s

                          

                        Note :   
                                 I have not been trained in this talent from anywhere.
                                 I picked up the brushes during my class 10 and continued till
                                 my graduation i.e. 1990. After that I stopped doing and
                                 now it is 25 years of leaving this hobby.

HOW TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE AND YOUR JOB

      Book Review 
Image result for how to enjoy your life and job book

Investing rupees hundred on this book more than a decade ago introduced to Carnegie's literature  and thereafter ignited me to  read more self help books of West.

The principles underlined in this best seller is known to everybody, but the implementation part  differentiates  a successful man from that of failed one.  In fact, this book is a compilation  from the two great books of Dale Carnegie : How to Win Friends and Influence People and How to Stop
Worrying and Start Living
.

Carnegie wrote these books in 1930s, but  the ideas and strategies he recommended remain unchanged as there would be no change in human dimension.  It is only the context changes but the thinking remains same in any generation.  New technologies may give new comforts but man's explorative mind don't alter with time.

BEST FREE RESOURCES ARE HERE FOR SUCCESS


In my numerous earlier posts, I dwelt at length the aim of this blog : Dig the World Wide Web for bringing  the best free resources in front of you for your personal growth.

Here I take the role of  perfume dealer. In the process of selling, he tests each perfume to find it's suitability before it is put to sale. This makes him to know more about perfumes and their quality.

In fact, this simile is an attempt to reflect my  deeper feelings of how best I could make this blog Number One Knowledge Portal in future.

DELHI - IS IT SMART CITY ?

A road in Kotla Mubarakpur in South Delhi, just touching South Ex market - courtesy: My smartphone Samsung E7

The present government is investing Rs.48,000 crores under the ambitious project called 'Smart Cities'.  It's a very good idea as such thought did not come to previous governments.   The basic infrastructure like better roads, sanitation, drinking water are long demands of people but due to one reason or other, they have taken back seat.  Our cities and towns urgently need a face-lift in basic infrastructure.  

Being a  dweller of Delhi  for the past 5 years, I have my own views on this  city.

PULLING HIS LIFE

Courtesy : My Smartphone Samsung E7 with 13 M.P Camera
These are really unsung heroes of our lives.   Imagine a day when your maid takes a leave on being ill or you don't get a rickshaw to your last mile of destination.  Life almost comes to standstill.  Even a thought of it would swirl your mind.

Those who do manual labour  have a special  place in my heart.  The reason is simple.  I can't play their role  and that's why I would be little more compassionate when I pay for their services.    It is a kind of feeling blessed while  interacting with these humble souls.   Some times such interactions  give very valuable inputs  and help us for a course-correction in life.

THE LEADER IN YOU

Book Review

Dale Carnegie is one of the foremost personality development gurus of 20th century in America.  Wikipedia dubbed him as writer and developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking and interpersonal skills.

Now so many leadership courses are on offer at http://www.dalecarnegie.com/ and all the current courses are based on the ideology of  Carnegie whose books are sold everywhere in almost all railway stations through out India.  His famous books include How to Win Friends and Influence people and How to stop worrying & start living.

The above book is in fact not written by Dale Carnegie, but each chapter of the book starts with Carnegie's famous quote.  The chapters dwell at length on the real life situations underlying the core management principles of Carnegie.

The back flap of the book says  that the co-authors Stuart R. Levine and Michael A. Crom offers Carnegie's time-tested human relationship principles to demonstrate how anyone can harness creativity and enthusiasm to work more productively.  The book offers very rare insights of authors of how to strike a balance between work and leisure.  The book also guides you to achieve  your goals and increase your self-confidence and above all, the book facilitates you to identify your own leadership strengths.
