Individuals don’t make companies – Teams do…

Individuals don’t make companies – Teams do…

                     Fortunately, there is no need of some quantum technology to prove that “Individuals don’t make companies – Teams do… ”, as the dictionary meaning of the word Company itself defines as “A group of people who combine together to form a business” or “Being together with someone”

So, obviously the word Team bonds a ‘long-lasting – never-ending’ relationship with company when compared to the word Individual

Hence, Individuals don’t make companies – Teams do…

                   Then why don’t we here of some great teamwork when we speak of some great companies? Why is it just Mark Zukerburg and Steve Jobs that occupy the headlines of the Business World when other members of the team fail to do so..?

                  Well…The above condition is quite similar to the largest game of this planet – Football, where we here only the names of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo but not the other members of their teams…Because it’s them who score the goals… They are the players who bring the points for their team.

But that doesn’t imply that the rest of the team didn’t play ‘their part’ in scoring the goal.

The job of the defender is just to break the plans of the opposition striker. He hardly gets an opportunity to score goals in his career…But without him, there couldn’t be a team…

A successful soccer team contains a well organised members starting from strikers, mid-fielders, defenders, goal-keepers, managers, coaches, medical staff, and the list is considerably large… And even if one of the pieces is missing – the clock cannot work properly…

Hence even though “Individuals don’t make companies – Teams do…” We also need to remember that

“Teams don’t make into the headlines – Individuals do…”

So, it’s not about ‘Individual Vs Team’ that we need to discuss here – rather it’s about an individual leading a team or a team working collectively for a common dream, by respecting the work of his teammates…

The Behind-The-Hero Initiative:-

                     Tony Stark may be the action icon of the Marvel Avengers but ‘The Avengers Initiative’ doesn’t define some bunch of super heroes – It is actually much more than that…And the success of The Avengers isn’t just dependent on the action heroes as a dedicative person such as ‘Agent Coulson’ can also knockout the enemy without any super human powers…

So, it’s not just about the heroes on the screen – rather it’s also about the heroes “behind the screen”

And moreover, teamwork need not be some direct support for the mission – It can also be in the form of guidance and inspiration just like in the case of Batman – Bruce Wayne, where he drew the positive guidance from his long-time confidante, Alfred Pennyworth. And thus he indirectly teamed with Batman to catch the criminal masterminds…

Likewise, behind every great entrepreneur like Steve Jobs and Mark Zukerburg, there must be many persons supporting either directly or indirectly to achieve their dreams…

                   Thus their companies don’t just reflect their personal achievements, but it reflects a great teamwork ‘behind the screen’ which needs to be recognised and celebrated so that the future entrepreneurs may come to know that “ Starting a company isn’t a one-man-show, rather it’s a collective working of each individual and respecting the work of others while sharing a common goal…”

And thus, if you want to find yourself in the headlines of the Business World – you better have a team first…

teamwork wins...

Lets stop fooling ourselves…!

Things seems a bit odd when we constantly tell our brain that nothing is believable and no one can be trusted. Things seems a bit odd when we examine someone just like Sherlock Homes to know whether the other person is saying true or not… Well, things seems a bit odd when I say, “ I saw an alien “ – or in this case I am just fooling you…

Well… a lot of things happen on ‘The Fool’s Day’ – April the first and talking about fools, one thing clearly hits my mind. It is that we – The Humans are all fools to not live in the “fool’s paradise”…

In this quantum generation, we are all surrounded by numerous problems, well beyond the number of stars in our galaxy that we almost forget to enjoy our ‘One-and-only-one’ life in this Blue Planet…

Human development is going at a rapid pace but one thing that we are leaving behind that is quite essential for our sustainable development is ‘Peace of mind’… We are actually fooling ourselves in terms of progress and development, which is a like running around to touch the sky with our fingers…

So on this fool’s day, “ Let us stop fooling ourselves ” and let’s try to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine – the beautiful nature and more essentially the unpredicted life of a human being…

My Holiday Song …!

 

Once I am done,

Once I am free;

Its going to be,

Just me and me…

 

No more following some scary rules,

No more reading all day like fools.

No more uniform, no more sitting calm,

No more thinking of just school and school…

 

Now I am done,

Now I am free;

Its going to be,

Just me and me…

 

Now that its my holidays

I’ll enjoy it in as many ways

So much to watch, so much to play.

That’s what I need to do – all the day…

FACEBOOK FRIEND …!

One fine morning I saw a beautiful girl

Her eyes were just like a blazing pearl…

Then I made a deep dive in the ocean of love

I just wanted to talk to her somehow…

By the time I got my shoe

My girl just made a move…

I searched for her for an hour

And told myself that she belongs to me forever…

Fortunately I found her in the Facebook

Now what I need is just a new look…

Yeah…she became my friend

I just hoped her to stay till the end…

I was totally lost in the dreams of her

And didn’t even look at a single girl near…

Finally, one day I saw her in the books store

And without hesitation I asked,

“How about a dinner in the sea shore! “

She was just smiling

Which made me annoying…?

So, with a brave heart I proposed “I LOVE YOU”

And then she replied to my first question,

“CAN I BRING MY BOY FRIEND TOO!!! “

Forest – For Rest …?

Millions of years ago, there was an event named “ Carboniferous Rainforest Collapse ”, where sharp climatic changes destroyed tropical rainforests, causing the extinction of many plant and animal species… Since then, there was a gradual decrease in the worldwide greenery…

The decline in the forest affected the climatic conditions and those climatic conditions declined the forests even further…

It’s hard to believe that a single event could change the course of the history. And one thing which comes along with the history is – It cannot be changed…

Change – Change in the human behaviour – change in the course of the nature or in this case ‘ gradual increase in the forest cover ‘… On this World Forestry Day – 21st March, let’s celebrate this change and make it as an example for the coming generations…

Earlier it was thought that the decline in the forest area is unstoppable and inevitable; forget about the increment, many organisations fought just to stop the unnecessary destruction… Forest area, which contains about 90% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity, was soon assumed to be taking rest – forever…

Forest – for rest …?

Everything went gloomy and downhearted not until the dragon country – China determined for the “ Green wall of China “  project. And now, its forest cover which was 12% some two decades ago grown to 16.55%… And each present growth in the forest area can remove billions of tons of carbon each year, emitted into the atmosphere. Now that’s what called the best example you could set for the future generations…

Forest – for the best…!

            So let’s cheer for all those who created history and let’s start working together so that the possible extinction could be prevented.

Let’s do it for our ‘Mother’ Nature…

Forest – For the Best…!

 

Let’s dream with the Mega Mind…

“Some say Life is not a race to be won – But it’s a glory to be achieved.” Well, in either the case, there need to be a specific target in our mind so that we could focus all our attention on that single thing.

But what if it is achieved ? What if the race has been won? What next…?

Well, Flynn Rider once said, “ Go look after an another dream…” Fortunately our human dreams are endless. But the point is which dream is worth achieving ? which dream is worth running ?

Believe me, when I was watching the animated movie “MegaMind”, all these things zoomed across my grey matter…

In the movie, when MegaMind defeated his arch-rival  superhero, he was left with no other work to do… He felt really bored and its then he made all the stupid mistakes, which had some serious impacts as the movie progresses.

So whose mistake was it then…?

Was it the mistake of MegaMind to feel bored ?

Was it the mistake of the Superhero to lose that easily ?

Or was it the mistake of me for naming it as a mistake ?

Even according to the Science, a Human brain can go fuzzy if we don’t have any specific idea on what we actually want to think. Hence, what we choose to think matters a lot…

So, do we need to maintain a list on what we should choose to think after we lived this dream ? I guess we should  – and I call it a “ Mega Dream List “ It’s more like a ‘refill to a pen’ – If one gets out of the ink, we need to replace with another one and start writing…

So let’s take a ‘strategic timeout’ in our life race and start thinking about our next dream…

Let’s use our MegaMind…

Mega Dream List…?

If the Earth dies …

“If the Earth dies – you die.

             If you die – the Earth survives…”

Every day – we ’The Humans’ think that we are contributing for something great on this planet. We think that the Earth must be fortunate enough to carry us…But after reading the earlier dialogue, we realise that we are nothing more than some complex organisms, who first searched for food, clothing and shelter during the early evolution process and later utilised every possible resource of this Earth – for his own personal needs and greed…

The starting dialogue of this article is from the 2008 American Science fiction film, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”. It follows ‘Klaatu’ [An alien messenger in human form], who comes here as a result of humankind’s environmental damage to the Earth, to change our human behaviour or to eradicate us from the Earth…

So – do we deserve a second chance?

Well…I don’t believe that some alien Klaatu will to ‘America’ to remind us that we are out of time…And hence there is no question of a second chance here.

Then who will tap us when we are sleeping in a room full of poisonous fumes..? Our nature will. And it will act as the messenger as well as the Executioner…And unlike the Klaatu, it isn’t going to speak clearly in English, “You are running out of time…” It does leave clues, but we need to be patient enough to think about them.

2013 is termed as one of the hottest year ever! Isn’t it a straight forward clue that our atmosphere is no longer in a position to withstand such a large quantities of Greenhouse gases…

So let’s start to think before it is too late… And first, let’s create awareness among the people about the disintegration of the Natural environment and its harmful effects on plants, animals and also the Humans…

Everyone make mistakes. It’s in the Human nature… It’s also in the nature of humans to learn from their mistakes… and if we don’t – then what’s the point in living? What’s the point in a second chance? And above all, what’s the point of our evolution…?

Do we deserve the second chance...?
Do we deserve the second chance…?

 

 

 

Edward Snowden – The Person of the year 2013

Internet is not just a basic utility, but it is rather considered as oxygen now-a-days as things tend to freeze without it – even for a single minute…With the ultra-fast and secure communications, internet became a ‘faithful messenger’, who can literally travel the whole world…

That’s the power of the ‘internet’.

And now if you suddenly reveal that all your messages weren’t that secure in the hands of that “undercover” faithful messenger – a revolution was about to happen – or in this case Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden, a former C.I.A and National Security Agency [ N.S.A ] employee, who unveiled the mass surveillance program of NSA – or we better call it PRISM was named as The Guardian “Person of the year” – 2013.He also received the famous “Sam Adams Award” this year…

Now what made Edward Snowden the person of the year ..?

He didn’t just reveal the secret of NSA, but he did it on knowing the consequences he had to face form the government… In one of the interviews he told, “I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions, and that the return of this information to the public marks my end.”

Thus the Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has described Edward Snowden as a “hero”, declaring that “history will judge him very favourably.”

So let’s hope that Jimmy Wales words come true…

Long live Snowden – The person of the year 2013…

Thor – Director General of the Energy Corporation…!

If you have ever forgotten a phone charger, you know what it’s like to wander through an airport – staring at all the available electrical sockets you just can’t use… All that electricity available for taking – only if you had the right equipment…

It fits very similar in the case of the ‘lightning’…

With each bolt of lightning carrying a relatively large amount of energy of about ‘5 billion joules’, the concept of “harnessing the power from the lightning” is mouth-watering…

But why aren’t we making progress in this arena…?

Well, harnessing the energy from the lightning is just not as easy as it feels. With a bolt travelling some thousand fold times faster than ‘Usain Bolt’ ,the machinery must be very efficient to absorb such a large amounts of energy in such a short span of time…And even though if you designed such a massive infrastructure, you can’t afford to install them in ‘every corner of the world’…

‘Unpredictability’ and the ‘stabilised control of the input’ are the other factors which delay the production of this much awaiting form of energy.

And this is exactly where Thor can come into play…

He can use his hammer to focus all the lightning on a single power plant, in a much controlled manner. Thus can solve all the above stated problems…

Long live Thor – Director General of the Energy Corporation…

And as a matter of fact, How is electricity manufactured in your planet..?

Lets light hopes in this planet...

The Wind, The Blood and The Dried leaves…

Once upon a time, there lived a lion who was the king of the jungle. He ruled the jungle with all the wisdom and hence all the animals lived happily. And just when all the things were going perfect, the king fell ill… He was no longer in a position to rule the jungle. Hence he appointed his brother as a stand-in and went deep into the forest to have proper medication.

The brother had neither wisdom nor the knowledge to rule the jungle. The entire jungle was unhappy about his rule. Unable to tolerate this nuisance any longer, a brave centaur went into the forest to inform his beloved king about the present situation.

Unfortunately, he didn’t make through the forest… he didn’t return back to his family either… He was been killed. And everyone knew who did it. Hence the strongest and the bravest men in the jungle formed a union and started towards the king…

And this time – the result was even more devastating. Those men fought in vain but they had no chance against the mighty clan of lions.

Things seemed very much tangled when the mass murderer himself came to the public and warned them that any interference to his governance is no longer tolerated. All their fates were sealed…

The only possible way to get out of this not-so-friendly situation was to inform the king about the present status – And since they couldn’t do it directly, they searched for other alternatives.

All the animals gathered a pile of dried leaves and dyed them red with their own blood and scattered them in air. They hoped that at least one leaf would reach the king and convey their condition.

The wind favoured the weak and thus their beloved king was back and killed his brother. The rogue soldiers were banished. The king later came to know that his brother was forming an alliance with their rivals and they were all planning to take on the king himself. Thus the red leaves didn’t just save the helpless animals; they saved their beloved king too…

That is the power of media.

That is the power of the citizens, when they work collectively for a better society…

And that power – that fire is at its best when the ruling government is democratic as the democracy is itself defined as the government of the people – by the people – for the people…

In a country like India, were the politics are generally avoided by the educated people, the encouragement of the working class to participate in the democratic dialogues is very essential…

Media plays a vital role here. Just as it was the ‘wind’ in the earlier story, media can actually [ and virtually ] connect the people with the government. And just like in the case of wind, it works best at the times of utmost need.

But not all the situations are urgent. Some are worth discussing in the public so that a better solution may be obtained on a longer run… And this is where media can invite the public to confidently exchange their thoughts. When public starts to react along with the media, there is no special need for constructive reforms… The government will either act or be forced to act positively…

That’s the power of ‘blood’.

Without blood, there is no great significance for the wind in the story…

And going back to the story, one more element acted simultaneously along with the wind and blood to bring back smiles to the animals…

The ‘dried leaves’ – just the similar comparison to the present day ‘internet’ – fast and light weight…

With the evolution of internet, the boundaries of social media were expanded beyond their imagination and various organisations like Avaaz.org, ifocusmission.com are involving citizens – especially the youth in the social activities, where our each click will define the well-being of the future generations. And you don’t need to shed even a single drop of ‘blood’ in these online social movements… It’s like providing a ‘bottle of ink’ to the animals in the story…

It is the fastest and the easiest means to react to the immoral and to gather support from everyone…

And finally,

No matter how many leaves we gather,

No matter how much blood we gush,

No matter how strong the wind is…

The ultimate aim must be the well-being of the ‘future generations’.

“Because either the way, History will remember us…”

lets build a perfect country...
lets build a perfect country…
