Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” ― Abraham Lincoln

Success is a journey and not a destination. In fact, there is no straight jacket formula for success. Though somebody may inspire us, butto be successful, we must tread our own path.

Abraham Lincoln in fact is a bundle of failures before he ascended the presidency of US.

- Lost job, 1832
- Defeated for legislature, 1832
- Failed in business, 1833
- Sweetheart (Ann Rutledge) died, 1835

Ralph Waldo Emerson says that “In my walks, every man I meet is my superior in some way, and in that I learn from him.

Every human being is potentially unique in his or her way of doing things coupled with abilities and capabilities specifically endowed by the Almighty. What we have to do is make everything and everyone as a learning experience. With this mindset, I try to learn something from everybody and never feel ashamed of, because the great people already disowned what they knew.

Recently I was crippled with the sudden death of my aunt who died accidentally when the horse carrying her slipped  into the valley when their family was on a pilgrimage  to famous Kedarnath Temple in Uttarakhund. The manner of death really shocked me and threw me out of gear for some weeks. After limping back to normalcy, I turned more spiritual. The incident had taken me to a new level of wisdom about uncertainty of life. I felt the  so called predicting business about future is nothing but a farce. What lies ahead of next moment is flatly unpredictable.

No doubt the image of India, after surfacing of 2G Spectrum scam, has severely dented our image and put us in total ignominy. However, we need to put a brave front to tackle the menace of corruption. Anna Hazare through his recent massive protest programme with youngsters as his foot soldiers almost shook the Establishment and our political masters appeared to have come to terms with the new reality and hope blossoms for brighter days ahead.

One reason why  America stood as the world leader is uncompromising patriotism of it's people and feel pride of their achievements. Over and above, their confidence to stand tall in all human endeavor made them the front-runners in all facets of human activity.

The Anna Hazare led public protest  on the  issue of corruption has still not faded from my memory.   What was started as protest programme turned into a mass hysteria as it  got a tsunami of support, especially from educated young.     The cause for which Anna stood is absolutely necessary in today's turbulent times.     Corruption  does not simply mean  indulging in financial irregularities or siphoning money or showing favoritism or violation of law.    Failure to give better service delivery i.e. what the Anna Team coined as Public Charter also amounts to failure to public service.

The whole issue here is service oriented mind which I  think in Govt. Sector is severely lacking.
