Dear Dr. Subramanian,

Thanks. Happy  Ganesha Chaturthi. This reminds me of a well known
story about Lord Ganeha. Mother Parvati put her two sons, Lord Kartikeya and Lord Ganesha in to a competition for winning her necklace . Competition was, who ever does the Parikrma(Going Round) of the Brahmand (whole Universe) first, wins her Necklace. We all know very well how Lord Ganesha won the competition and the Necklace.  Lesson from this:


It is the Smarts who win the game and not people who just do Hard Labor without thinking.


Note:  Recently I heard this story and the lesson (in India) from a well known
           Management  Guru.


Regards.

Dear Er. Pandyaji,

Thanks for the message. I always used to wonder that our scriptures and very old sayings contain all the essence of our life. I remember reading a book 'All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten'  by American minister and author Robert Fulghum (Ivy Books, 1988) long ago. This slim book of 186 pages explains how the world would be improved if adults adhered to the same basic rules as children, i.e. sharing, being kind to one another, cleaning up after themselves, and living "a balanced life" of work, play, and learning.(also see:http://www.pa-fsa.org/Assets/files/All_I_Ever_Really_Needed_to_Know.pdf). Unfortunately we forget all we learnt in Kindergarten and pay huge sums to learn them again in Management schools, with lot of abstract theory!

May God Bless you!

Regards
NS

Dear Dr. Subramanian,

I agree. If you allow me to  put it in my own way "Indian Grand Mothers who teach such things to their Grand Children, will put  best in business, management guru's  out of business".

This is just a joke. No offense to our management teachers.
