Some of my tweets – Part-III

Posted by on May 4, 2011 in EPM World, Expressions, Humane, Leadership, Philosophical | 0 comments

Every day hundreds of thoughts cross through our mind.  We know the majority are involuntary ones.  At times, I try to divert my thoughts to a more purposeful subject.  I love to register those important thoughts on my Twitter account.

This post comprises some of my tweets.  This is one way of sharing my tweets and at the same time having a backup on my blog.

  • Every action of ours tantamount to meditation when it is done with devotion.
  • In every walk of our life, we should involuntarily compile a risk register to consistently succeed in life.
  • People who always tend to look things through negative lens also throw negative vibes.
  • When your work is inspired by dreams, it can make the impossible possible.
  • Product innovation reduces the burden of marketing innovation.
  • When the failure frowns upon you, use the magic wand called ‘confidence’.
  • Nothing is impossible to achieve through right and disciplined communication. Trade and commerce to divinity.
  • Can ‘growth’ be a regular point of business agenda? Does it reflect positive or negative?
  • We can eradicate pain and penury only when the world stops surviving on money.
  • We care about Voice of Customer & talk about Voice of People. The consistent need, however, is advocacy to Voice of Sufferers on the street.
  • We should not need an every time wake-up call to attend to the mute appeal of people under Below Poverty Line (BPL).
  • Positive revolutions take place when intellectuals break their silence.
  • Playing or interacting with children is a lesson to us. They help us learn many things & make us understand our weaknesses / shortcomings.
  • The biggest challenge in making a project plan is drawing pragmatic sales projections.
  • The temple which is built with bricks of purity and devotion is stronger than the God.
  • Life is like a long drive. Inherently, both have joy, speed breaks, congestion, accident, breakdown, companion, entertainment, and more.
  • The true success is not in the continuing journey of success, but one being humble through the success.
  • We will feel lazy to take His name or we will ignore His prayer till we continue receiving His blessings.

I would be happy to discuss on any point if you want me to elaborate further.

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by on Apr 24, 2011 in EPM World, Expressions, Humane, Philosophical | 1 comment

April 24, 2011. The day Sri Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the embodiment of love, peace, and sanctity left us. The day the color ‘saffron’ lost its brilliance, the day the color ‘white’ lost its abode, the day the humanity lost its leader.  The day I lost my life.

“You are seeking joy and peace in far-off places. But the spring of joy is in your heart. The haven of peace is in yourself” …………………………Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba


I have lost my heart, my Bhagawan, My Lord, and My Life – Please come back and lit the joy in my life.

Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba

Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba

Today, when I recall many sweet chantings like “Krishna Jai. Krishna Jai.  Krishna, Krishna, Krishna Jai” from His electrifying tone and as chorused by His disciple world, I am lost in myself.  My soul weeps at every thought, at every glance and at every sound representing my Bhagawan.  When can again I experience the loving gait of Him?  When can I enjoy the Godly, peaceful smile of Him?  When can I enjoy His every flowery movement and gestures addressing His disciples?  When can I listen to the invigorating, honeyed tone of Him?  When can I find His abode being ornated with His presence again?  When can I experience the sight of active spiritual corridors, sacred chants, loving thoughts, service hustles, and flourishing environs of Puttaparthi?

The true Leader of Humanity!  The true Leader of Reformation!  The only savior-being of this era!  Hey Bhagawan!  Will you appear back for us?  Will you again fill the holy moments of love, peace, and sanctity with your divine presence?  Can you hear our agony?

I am lost.  Do I need to prolong this life of mine when My Dear Lord, My Life and My Soul, Sri Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba left me?  My heart weeps and my state of mind says:

“When you are lost in emotional warmth, when tears drench your body, when your heart goes heavy, when your voice is choked and when your tonal chords turn the sweetest ever, he has occupied you.  Let the moment not leave you.  Make it eternal.  Let the life be taken over by Him”.

My mind left me for Him.  My body doesn’t want to feel its weight.  I am not able bear the loss.  I twice had a close glimpse of Him in my life.  Luck didn’t favor me again.  I am so unfortunate that I couldn’t experience the living God while he was present.

I will follow His preachings through my life.  I know this is the only way to connect with Him.  Bhagawan ke bina anand nahi.  Still, I want to live my life just to remember Him every moment and to spread around me the love, peace and joy.

Sai Ram, Sai Ram, Sai Ram

The perishing relationships

Posted by on Apr 19, 2011 in EPM World, Expressions, Humane, Philosophical | 0 comments

The one thing that touches me often is the matter of relationships and the changing perceptions of people about acquiring, maintaining and dumping relationships.  My observation herein is about the friendship, which has been the most sacred relationship experienced by us from childhood. I recall here the days of my schooling where I had several friends who were a mix of classmates and neighbors.  We had enjoyed a very close bondage till we reached college and had to disperse to different directions for further education and avocations.  During those 10 years of togetherness we never knew to have had any big differences of opinion or never had a judgmental view of each others personality or never tried to reckon any one from the perspective of social, financial or personal worth.  We had very natural and trivial issues that would disappear into oblivion sooner they occur.

Now I see a sea change in the perception and meaning of relationships.  I find there is a glaring gap in the bondage and thinking in the relations unlike the earlier times of school and college.  There is a gradual waning of personal touch in the relations similar to the loss of taste in the food we eat today.  Relationship evolved to be need based and perishable.  Friendship started demanding perpetual incubation to keep it alive.  I mean one need to be resourceful, useful and materially strong to retain friendship.  Otherwise, friendship will cease to stay any further.  There is a negligible value to personal traits, personality and intellect of an individual.  An unfortunate incident or a misunderstanding or eves drop can mar the prospects of friendship.  People don’t have time to analyze the facts or appraise the situations to patch up the broken relations.  People don’t hesitate to swapping or switching of friendship should there be a benefit of relation.  Though such an approach doesn’t deserve the label of friendship; it still enjoys the tag of friendship.

The trend is also obvious within and among the family relations.  We like to see a friend in the spouse.  Our children want us to treat them as friends.  Friends are friends. All this is probably to make things flexible for dumping relationship any time.

A real friendship should:

  1. Value the positive personal traits
  2. Grow emotional and caring
  3. Conduct beyond worldly thinking
  4. Be void of inhibitions
  5. Inculcate openness
  6. Not hold closed view
  7. Be non-jealous
  8. Crave to retain relationship and value personal worth of individuals
  9. Try to improve the longevity of friendship
  10. Correct the deficiencies of friend

The obvious need of people in the society today is personal touch and to be humane.  If we are able to extend this we can contribute towards the common good of relationship and friends around us.

Some of my tweets on Twitter – II

Posted by on Apr 16, 2011 in Business, EPM World, Expressions, Leadership, Philosophical | 0 comments

I keep tweeting my thoughts and express opinions on business mundane.  Twitter is my favorite platform which gives us the freedom to be socially active.  I would like to share through this posting some of my tweets.

This is a better way of preserving tweets as at times old tweets disappear from display.

  • It is ideal to increase our focus on changing customer perceptions and requirements than a mere strategy to face competitors.
  • Every day review of his / her business is a big learning for entrepreneur. Personal touch in the context with customers is a big asset.
  • I won’t consider IRR alone for a given project if I find an opportunity to create higher brand value for a venture as I favor long-term returns.
  • Tweets are better than any news whether TV or News Paper. We can have what we want on the platter.
  • We should have more BPLAN fairs by VCs to attract and encourage innovations from small cities.
  • ERP application is like pillars and roof. Once deployed, it will be a big decision to replace or remove.
  • When rain copulates with the earth, livelihood sprouts.
  • Playing with children is a form of Yoga.
  • Every small good thing inspires me and every big blow strengthens me.
  • An entrepreneur who is at the brink of success should be more cautious.
  • We can raise the self-esteem of our team by treating them as ‘human intellect’ than human resources or human capital.
  • Business has evolved to be a bonding element in the society while insensitivity to human relations playing a major role.
  • Performance failure of an employee could turn the pointer back to mentoring, recruitment, welfare, growth or HR insensitivity.
  • There can’t be a better CSR effort than creating employment in the focused areas.
  • One of the important welfare measures, I prefer for my team would be an exclusive incubating center to prove their individual expertise.
  • Human intellect is the bonding agent in the business pyramid.
  • Entrepreneur is also like a King or ruler of a country who should think and work for the common and larger benefit.
  • Collective productivity and collective growth should be the tenets of leadership.
  • Visionary should be like a true film director who envision and steer movie for others.
  • Time doesn’t wait for any one. Our age doesn’t wait for achievements.
  • The base for human development and human destruction is human intellect. The difference is the purpose of its application.
  • If you are reciprocative, you are everything – responsible, mutual, accountable, professional, sensitive, and caring.
  • The one luxury that is abundantly enjoyed by the poor is sleep.
  • An enterprise which doesn’t define its Vision could carry the risk of making journey without knowing the destination.
  • In the worldly life, that we live, anger is an important tool at times to control others encroachment on our personality.
  • When you feel you are getting undeserved treatment from the God, talk to your strength.
  • Recession periods are shutdown times for maintenance of organizations.
  • Miscommunication is the seed for conflicts. Clarified communication is the best solution.

Will post some more sometime.

Expressions

Posted by on Jan 10, 2011 in EPM World, Expressions, Philosophical | 0 comments

The only thing that grows when we share is Love.  Peace incubates love.  This could be experienced by every one whether an individual, a living being, a country or any other entity. The sprout of true love raises from an unknown depth.  The depth that one can’t see,  the depth that one would always like to sink in and the depth that takes one to the heights of divinity.

I believe the God is the true formation of love.  He gave us the mother nature.  He gave us mundane things to savor.  He gave us freedom.  He created us just to let us experience all these things.  Does he ask any thing in turn?  No.  He won’t even appear to us.  That is true love.  The love that gives every thing without expecting any thing.

That is why I love God.  He is every thing to me.  I find peace when I take His name.  I feel confident when I pray Him.  I feel eternally protected whether I am in His prayer or not. The chanting of sacred AUM invokes perpetual peace.  As I have experienced AUM is the powerful tool to find happiness.  AUM is the path to the sublimes of love and peace.  Thus, I love AUM.  When I chant AUM I look into my self.  I see the depths of my self.  I find new world path in the exuding brilliance inside me.  The world that keeps me detached from everything including my own being.  It invokes marvelous happiness.  It is the God.  Who is residing in me.  He is my life.  I love this life.  I want a very long life so that I can experience the Divinity in me.
