Revolutionize Indian Education System

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires". William Arthur Ward. The current observation is that most of the educators don’t add any value to students. On the other hand, it is the students who add value to educators by working very hard for exams to pass out with scores and grades from Indian educational institutions. Even in some of the prestigious educational institutions like IITs and IIMs in India, it is the students who slog hard to achieve the scores rather…

Corporate Governance and Ethical Leadership

"There are seven things that will destroy us: Wealth without work; Pleasure without conscience; Knowledge without character; Religion without sacrifice; Politics without principle; Science without humanity; Business without ethics". Mahatma Gandhi. When you evaluate the reasons for the collapse of global companies such as Enron, Tyco, Lehman Brothers, WorldCom, Global Crossing, and Indian company Satyam Computers, it is obvious that there was a complete disregard for ethics in their leaders. There is a need to emphasize ethics to ensure corporate governance.   Corporate governance means how companies can be controlled…

William Arthur Ward. Leadership is a widely talked about subject internationally. It gives lots of energy, enthusiasm and inspiration to many readers.

Build Leadership for Women Leaders

“A woman is like a tea bag, you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt. International Women's Day is observed on March 8 every year. I would like to write a few words on building women leaders as a mark of respect to women. Although leadership is not gender specific, we find a very few women leaders globally due to cultural, religious, social and other factors including glass ceiling. The good news is that currently women are kicking the glass ceiling and…

Mandela – Mahatma Gandhi of South Africa

Triumph of Falsehood

I have to admit that in spite of many attempts, I failed to transmit my last message of 02 Oct. 2013 to Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, the UN Secretary General, due to the violent confrontation of those around him who barred its arrival to him. Human life has totally changed; today group of mighty are controlling the world, crushing the vulnerable, indifferent without conscience and with no mercy, undermine the rules to fit their personal interests. Unfortunately, the law of jungle is realistic and has embarked on implementing it on the…

Religion and Love to Achieve World Peace

“We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.” William Gladstone. Currently we have too many religions in the world. Some of the people from their religious faith believe that their religion is superior to others leading to conflicts and terrorism globally.

Human Mind: Drunken Monkey or Mighty Creator

Mind, until governed by soul wisdom, is very complex and tricky. In fact, Swami Vivekananda used to say that a mind that does not learn to meditate is like a drunken monkey bitten by a scorpion and possessed by a devil’s soul. Indeed, governing the mind is a hard job. We shall see here how to discipline, befriend and optimize the mind. Most people confuse between the mind and the brain; they are not the same. The brain is an organ, like any other organ, it has a definite location…

The Key to World Peace

We all want peace and happiness for ourselves. The wise among us desire peace and happiness for all; they feel concerned about conflicts and wars anywhere in the world. International leaders and philosophers have said and written volumes on the subject of World Peace. Yet how World Peace eludes us!   Some think it is poverty or want that is at the root of conflicts, but even prosperous nations have had internal conflicts. Some say, it is the lack of education, but literacy does not guarantee values, either. Religionists may…
