VC-with a purpose

How long will I be a team member?? When will I lead a team?? These questions keep haunting me over a long time for now… having gained apprenticeship under seniors for Sensors’ 07; I decided to contest for vice chairman for ICEA, Instrumentation control engineering students association. The seniors completely satisfied with my work for sensors & instantly approved. With meesai (vinayakk) getting unanimously elected for CICREP (placement rep), I surely thought there would be an election for VC post. I thought if someone like dev is contesting, then no use in me contesting. Obviously he would win due to the female votes. Just because I don’t get an opportunity, rather the need, I don’t talk to gals. May be to a few whom I know well… :( :(

When naveen (shamsu) briefed about the election, I won the confidence of shamsu & ab (balaji). All the class decisions involve them. So I moved onto the centre stage next to shamsu. An applause that I received from frenz…. That was heavenly…. I wouldn’t forget in my life…. Then came bharat (goyal)…this didn’t surprise me, as bharat worked equally for sensors. Every time I was the one who gave him the work… but no one contested against me other than him…hmmm... This heaved a sigh of relief…
I was confident to win …

The election began. People began to write ‘V’ 4 vinod, ‘B’ 4 bharat in a paper & expressed their franchise. The counting began… I took a lead from the initial stage. Many people casted bogus votes as they didn’t write their roll nos. bharat was the worsted affected with his. So I asked to count those bogus votes tooo…. Final tally 38 – 24... I won …. Yippee…

But general view about sensors…. Its chaat... an excuse to get an off from college. Nothing innovative…. For those people who gave me such a feedback, please be the changes which u wanna make… don’t jus keep repeating these age-old lines again.

The Indian Reliance

The sensex touching 20,000 mark. Only second market after Hong Kong’s in South Asia. The market is booming....the FDIs pouring in... But the brand leading the Indian business contingent Reliance. Be it mukesh or anil... I heard that soon there would be an ad with this concept. “From the time a person gets up from his bed, till he gets back home in the night, all the products which he uses would in daily life is made by reliance…”well.. It symbolizes the reality.

The remarkable growth of reliance empire is triggered the Indian economical development. A man who didn’t even know to speak English, who just had his trading acquaintance in an oil company, started his business. Yes … Late Dhirubhai Ambani, the founder Reliance group. His dream has been fulfilled. Infact more than what he expected.
The bifurcation of his assets had further intensified its growth, with mukesh holding the big powered industries. There on …. The growth has been unprecedented. Mukesh at around $42billion closely catching up the toppers Bill Gates, Carlos Slim, Lakshmi Mittal. With his ratings increasing, there is an increase in share value, further increasing his worth. Be it mobiles, reliance product is there. Be it consumer goods, reliance product is topping the list. So when it’s good for the nation, why bother… he’s developing his industries… not only that, he’s taking the country economic growth with him.

Definitely its on a positive note. lets Look at this growth from a different perspective.
You have reliance products in all fields. It makes life difficult for the retail investors. Then for budding entrepreneurs, each move should profitable and innovative to fight the reliance empire. The market is getting dominated by reliance industries. Sooner it could be reliance who would be calling the national budget. The finance minister should chart out ways to allow reliance to grow, as economy is growing with it. If reliance succumbs to pressure, then the markets would tumble.

Whether their business strategy is right or wrong, the development of the country should be main issue. They should allow other entrepreneurs to grow and do not affect the common retail investors. What Indians are expecting is … India shining campaign to become a reality…

be GOD..

A man went to a barber shop to get his hair cut & his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work . they began a good conversation.The conversation touched upon various subjects and finally reached.. "about the existence of god".
The barber didn't believe in the existence of god. "why do u say that" asked the customer. "well..if u step outside the shop..onto the street..there are so many abandoned children.. so many sick people wouldn't die.."the customer taught momentarily , and decided
not to get into an argument.. "let him finish his work.otherwise the barber would try his new skills on my head..alert.. "
after the work was over, the customer paid and left the shop.As he walked down the street,he saw a man with long robes,stringy n dirty hair,his untrimmed beard reached his chest. suddenly a ray of light seemed to have strike the customer. he turned back and went to the barber again..
he said," u know what??barbers don't exist.. ."surprised by this statement,barber replied.."I'm a barber.I just worked on you..""then there should be no man with long hair and untrimmed beard like this one.",exclaimed the customer.
"This happens only if people don't approach me"replied barber. the customer reaffirmed that:" people don't go to him and look to him for help.that's why this pain and suffering on earth."
well ll.. thats the whole point..
anyone who helps the needy is a god to them. A kind hearted,benevolent person who serves the poor is a god. Just in case if the TAJ MAHAL,the symbol of love is no more .. will the people stop loving each other???God is in people who do good to be god...
