Dream big, Achieve bigger

Talking and writing about Dr. Abdul Kalam always gives me goosebumps. He is a man who made such impact and boosted confidence in our life. Below are the statements from the missile man of India often energizes me. Hope his words will truly enthusiast your daily lives too. He took only the positive side from his life, he given importance to his goal and don’t even know if he will achieve the target when he started. But I can say he become a very good example how to lead the life.
Dream Big:
There are many statements which he often told to students. Dream Big and Achieve Bigger., your dreams should not be kept within small boundary, it should wide the boundaries and become larger. “You have to dream before your dreams can come true” Says Abdul Kalam. The lesson which we learnt is not enough. One of my colleague taught me this quote which Abdul Kalam said it, “Dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is something that does not let you sleep”.
He even more specifies that, “Dream, Dream, Dream. Dreams transform into thoughts and thoughts result in action.”
He taught us to dream, how to dream and what could be the result of a dream. Great people’s dreams are helped humanity provided innovative thoughts. One person’s Vision, objective and goal can change many things, which he didn’t expected.
My dear friend, May I know what you are dreaming about.

After testimonial read by our Chairman, he stood up and started
reading his speech. Its started in formal manner, lauding about Engineers,
Architects, Doctors, Lawyers, Management students etc., Somewhere he sensed his
speech got into boring. He diverted the topic, started inspirational mode.
Talked about Quality, Time and Service. Everybody should think about these
three qualities in their life. 
Whatever you do deliver in a way that will
provide the value. Additional quality will lead to success. Don’t provide lame
excuses, procrastination is not ethical way. Don’t delay any works assigned to
you. Be genuine and do it in timely manner. Give yourself, immense on the work
you do. Do the work to society, be polite your higher officials, kind to
Finally questionnaire started, first
question itself, nobody expected that question. Sir, do you think we can
nullify the scams and bribes. He answered genuinely, at present time, we are
finding many scams yes! But if you think you can stop it. Don’t give bribe to
anybody in future. One have to start from themselves. Then their friends,
neighbors, street, and town at last it will definitely deliver to your country.
Second question, sir which religion you are following. I don’t like people
calling me with particular religion. I had all respects to all religions. I
always like to call myself as a good human being.

Finally we took a oath, he included that
we will not give bribe and we will try to nullify the bribe in future. He is
none other than Dr. Abdul Kalam.

That moment not only you are giving college bad name, also in your life that could be worst moment.

“Sir, come on, our department Humanities and Science ID cards are ready. We take it then.” You wait here, and make ready of all departments ID cards too.” Ok sir I nodded. One of the Senior lecturer came from ECE department, “What still ID card not ready for my department, how important that event, I will not allow any ID cards distributed without our ID cards are ready.”

“Jonny come, we can have tea and come”. Sir, still some works are pending. “Come da”, How your works are going, they given me the work of monitoring students.

Thinking inside and outside of the box

At World War 2, that is the time when Pearl Harbor incident took place. USA seriously thinking about reality. FDR thinking about the courage, weapons, soldiers. Nobody ready to go forward in the panic situation. Finally they started thinking about what they got, in reality they are not superior in that situation. In dark of night new plan arises and they got into new situation. Available weapons, flights, brave and smart soldiers given the opportunity lived up their dream. Given surprise attack and earned the respect back.
Way back in China, when their policies made impossible to come back, Xiaoping made a herculean effort to bring back China’s economy in normal mode. We can say from that time, China’s economy become global economy.
Nevertheless to say, these two stories are two examples of thinking inside and outside of the box. 
Synergy, this is most interesting word, when organizations got merged with each other or got into joint ventures they started thinking about the possible outcomes. They start thinking about the new opportunities to bring out their best. Legacy products will be strengthened and new products introduced, by the new alliances. This will be influenced by capabilities and capacities of the organization. Smart thinkers and internal management always brainstorm with the new ideas and excite the organization.
When I think about the SWOT analysis, business starts with opportunities available at outside. Most entrepreneurial immediate success was due to the opportunities which came on their way. New way of telling stories, solving the complicated issues, inspiring products which impress the customers. In same context one who helps the business grabs the opportunity by understanding the complexity. 
Organizations when thinking through convergent, also should give the opportunity to divergence. Creative and innovative thinking bring down many complexities. Not only brainstorming also understanding the outside world of opportunities make organizations grow.

NITI Aayog a new Think Tank

India has centralized government, were Prime Minister and
Parliament enjoyed centralized powers. Then came provincial governments now it’s
called as state governments, Chief minister of the state heading the government
for the state where the Governor as the representative of Central government.
Gandhiji voted for decentralized government where villages can resolve their
own issues, we had local panchayats and municipalities in cities. Still Central
government owing the major minerals and public sectors in their bucket. In USA,
government getting the powers from States, but in India, states are getting
their directives from Central government of India. 
Planning commissions’
setup and directed the financial allocations within the limits of state
government. But recently states like Tamilnadu, West Bengal & Uttar
Pradesh., earlier Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat & Karnataka working on their own,
with or without directives of government, they run their government and showed
their regional superiority to the other states. They utilized their own
resources and showoff the power of regional parties. 
Recent NITI Aayog
(National Institution of Transforming India), made end of Nehruvian’s socialist
economy. Joseph Stalin brought the five year plan to develop the Industrialization
of Soviet Union. Nehru thought of bringing agrarian development and brought
Planning commission in 1950. This will shed the light on State issues and bridging the Central and State Government.  Main objectives of NITI aayog are economic development,
ecological maintenance, skill development, entrepreneurial support, mixed
agricultural production etc.,
