Alarming Indiscipline in Indian Education

“Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model.” - Abdul Kalam Currently there is a growing indiscipline in Indian educational institutions and it is time we addressed this issue earnestly to shell out quality students who can grow as good citizens. Students are more demanding in terms of knowledge, freedom and facilities. They are becoming rights-oriented rather than duty-oriented without realizing the fact that duties and rights are two sides of the same coin. This is…

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…

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

“It would not be right to compare me to Gandhi. None of us could equal his dedication or his humility. He showed us it’s necessary to brave imprisonment if truth and justice were to triumph over evil.” Nelson Mandela. With the passing of Nelson Mandela on December 5, 2013, the world has lost one of the towering personalities of the 20th century. He is known to the world not as a black leader but as a global leader who made a significant difference to the world with his convictions to…

It is the time for us to think about volunteerism and nonprofits to make a difference to the world.

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…

Gossip Reporter’s Death Haunts Chinese Media

BEIJING: On a balmy spring day in the capital city of China, a China Radio International (CRI) employee had discovered a dead corpse lying beside the radio station’s apartment complex. Yan Yinan, co-host of the gossip talk-radio program, China Drive, had died in an apparent suicide. It occurred on a Good Friday, which is three days before Christians celebrate Easter.

Absence of Impartiality in UN Internal Justice

This is a copy of my messages sent to the SG and UNAT Judges which –for sure– was either classified or sent to the shredders (as usual). In order to avoid embarrassment the UNAT Judges keep dismissing and ignoring my submitted requests containing justifications and proves that refutes my fabricated charges in order not to admit that their initial decision was wrongly made, also to avoid involving the person(s) who forces them to violate their own statute and rules of procedures to take such wrong decision destroying the career and…

What is Inner City Press?

A news website that claims to conduct hard-hitting investigative journalism on the United Nations faces questions over its credibility and motives. The Inner City Press posts articles with on-the-record quotes by high-level UN officials while exposing shocking details of alleged corruption. This seems relevant for the mainstream media, since there are many rumors and innuendos of rampant corruption at the UN, while officials enjoy diplomatic immunity so they can act with impunity and above the law. Yet, Inner City Press’s sole reporter is rarely mentioned by legitimate journalists when they…

Accountability – Transparency: Deceptive UN Words

Here is another disturbing case of the United Nations lack of Accountability and Transparency. We received this article from a current staff member of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), who requested to publish this article without revealing the identity of the staff member, to avoid reprisal. It is hoped that Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations Secretary General, will respond to these serious allegations, which if true, the United Nations top management will have a lot to explain. The article is published below: Whether you are a skeptic or…
