Thought Leadership

It is indeed tragic that most Indians across generations are groomed from their formative years to subscribe to a flawed interpretation of the Karma theory and the caste system built on a fatalistic premise, which assumes without second thought that whatever happens (or does not happen) is the outcome of our good or bad karma

I have immense respect for Infosys co-founder NR Narayana Murthy and his brand of entrepreneurship. Having said that, I don't believe in advertising one's work ethics and routines for posterity.

Doctors and nurses work round the clock to treat patients, and they had no 'work from home' option even during the peak pandemic waves. We don't broadcast our hectic schedules or highlight how many times we have to wake up in the middle of the night or rush for ermergencies in the wee hours of the morning. We accept this reality as an integral part of our lives and move forward. Most of us are not billionares, but we believe in ploughing back profits for fundamental research.

Scores of unsung heroes in India put in more than 70 hours a day and begin their day well before 6.20 am including farmers, factory workers, migrant labourers, municipal teachers, and rural activists. They don't have time to shout from the rooftops and underline their contribution towards India's economic prosperity.
