Mother Of All Solutions: Be A Part Of Politics

I quote well phrased following extract from PPI:

“If India-born, India-educated Indians can run many global corporations which operate in hundreds of countries worldwide, with turnovers of thousands of crores of rupees, employing millions of people of every nationality, why, after six decades of self-governance, are 300 million Indians below the poverty line, and 350 million Indians illiterate ? Why are water and electricity still in short supply?”  Why should there be poverty and illiteracy in the first place?” The government has all the capabilities and resources to eliminate these two scourges but the willingness is absent.

Still we failed because there are many unenlightened and uneducated politicians, even criminals, sitting in our legislatures and making policy decision.  Parliament has to be run professionally like the way you run your respective organizations run.

Encourage your employees to participate in politics.  Spread the word.  Don’t be afraid. It is only when the educated and enlightened come into politics that things will change.  You don’t need to spend your time, effort, and money on uplifting literacy and poverty.  It can happen automatically if there is good governance in Indian politics.”

About badri

As I approached 68 (2013), my son, Anand insisted that I had proven enough in my 45-year long career and it was time I took life a little easier; enjoy traveling (that I love) and social life. Yet, I somehow wanted to contribute positively and was exploring my options. My son-in-law, Navin suggested that I should write and share my experiences, “being a self-made man, you should tell the next generation how you overcame various obstacles to reach this position, in both, business and social circles.” He pointed out that while I was sharing my experiences with family and friends, as they approached me, a blog had the potential to take your voice to many, many more. He also insisted that I start mentoring youngsters who were new in their businesses. I was convinced. I offered my services pro bono, as part of a Guidance Program. Also, I started writing on this blog, bringing out figments from my memory as experiences that might be of value to the readers here. My daughter Meeta is sweet enough to spare her time to edit what I write. As a youngster, I thought one meal a day, one set of school uniform a year, a public place to study, lack of finance and basic shelter would keep me from achieving my dreams. To compensate, I started giving 110% of what was normally expected. Yes, 110% even in bad deeds! This worked. The very limitations started inspiring me in different phases of my life – meritorious results in studies; strength to shoulder family responsibilities; satisfied employers; establishing a successful business of my own; and in my adventure trips and other travel plans. Having done what I wanted to, I agreed it was time for me to expose myself! I felt, through this blog, I could and should share my expereinces. Hopefully, readers would find some bits useful and if not, they’d enjoy reading. Look forward to interact with you. Happy Reading, Badri Baldawa
