Satyamev Jayate is NOT Mahabharat

Listen to this one Satyamev Jayate

Very recently I participated in a event where all participants are requested to donate/contribute some money for development and charity projects in Asia and Africa. I was very humbled to see the compassion of the Norwegians(in general Europeans) for such purpose. They were very sincerely and quickly filled the forms that says that they are ready to give away x% of their salary every month for this great NGO.Hats off to such initiatives.
While coming from there , I was thinking that can this kind of charity solve the problems in developing countries alone. Being an Indian obviously my mind was forcing me to think in the context of India and my conscience said- NO NEVER... DONATING MONEY CAN NEVER SOLVE THE PROBLEMS IN INDIA.WE ARE NOT SHORT OF MONEY.

What we need in India is a junoon to do the things for people.Love for money is prevailing over love for country/society. By the grace of God in India we have ALL - natural resources,human resource and technical resource  and billion of rupees as well. We have enough food to feed our country(Nobody should die of hunger), We have enough medicines to give better health services and we have enough engineers to automate the whole process to block loop holes in system. But hunger for money/profit is number 1 and this is affecting the behavior and attitude of common Indians.

What is the use of more money if that money is going towards corruption or become black money(and making all of Indian even more debt ridden). For uplifting the society India need money for sure but money is not first thing first things are following:
1. People who think for society/India.
2. Better Policy which serves the majority not just minority.
3. Better implementation of government schemes/projects.
4. Harsh punishment for people who obstruct point 2 and 3.

Unfortunately Anna Hazareji's movement is working for option 4 while Aamir khan is working for option 2 but nobody is working for option 2 and 3.

India can not be better place if we just once a while launch a good TV show(eg. Satyamev Jayate) or Anna anti-corruption movement. People will appreciate all this and forget once TV started broadcasting IPL and other soap operas.
We need to understand that Satyamev Jayate is not Mahabharat, which we can watch and forget. It is not history that we should just 'KNOW' for the sake of knowledge.It is not the serial where we just say 'what?' and 'Ohh' and then continue with routined life. It is 'Agaaz' of  a movement which should not stop after some Sundays it should become the JUNOON of todays India.Awareness is good for only those who don't yet not aware of it for others it MUST BE 'JUNOON'. A JUNOON to make India a better place for all of us and our coming generation.Remember that Gandhi,Subhash,Ajad, Bhagat they never spread the awareness alone they spread the junoon. If those people can spread the junoon 70-80 years back without media then why can not we do it with media, technology and even more intelligent and learned India. Aamir can do wonders !!!

In my opinion Aamir should repeat the same episode with new contestants(only those who got effected after first episode on same theme) after six months and then take it from there.We should never stop this junoon movement until we covered the point 2 and 3 as said above.Because then only we will be on the track to make India 'Shining'.

Signing off with the following song... Satyamev Jayate
Satamev Jayate....Jai hind.

SlideShare acquisition - a different perspective

I was reading a news about the SlideShare acquisition by linkedin for 119 million. It was inspiring to know that an Indian led company has achieved so much success. SlideShare wasstarted in 2006 and so it has achieved the status of no.1 presentation sharing site of the world. One could not ask for better success than this and that is why Amit Sinha says - "We could not be happier about this....". I was more interested to know 'Why' about his decision when he has acieved so much in 5 years and so went to SlideShare website and read his own comment where he pointed out following reasons :

One : "I firmly believe that SlideShare will grow faster with LinkedIn."
Question :
Growing faster in which domain ? Userbase,Branding or Revenue 
- In area of userbase , SlideShare does not need linkedin's help. It has it's own and very large userbase.
- In area of Branding , It has established itself as leading brand in content sharing and even can do more if diversify itself in some areas.
- In Revenue : I guess this is the area where Amit seemed more tempted but ....

Second : "I have watched as LinkedIn has grown from being a place to share your resume to a much richer site, where you go to keep up with what your professional network is doing and sharing. We like the path they are on, and are excited to join them on this journey."

Question : It is good that you are inspired by linkedin but you have much scope of as well. Why to sell ur own baby ..just collaborate with other majors and you could have be flying as well.....

As I was not much satisfied by above 2 reasons so I tried to analyzed this by another NON-Business way and found this as another example of Indian tech company bought by American giant just because they lack the world leadeship and tempted by the money.He did following  :

1. Worked for Americans companies
2. Left American firms and start their own business
3. Again worked hard to develop the business
4. Developed recognition
5. Sold the business to another American company
6. Ready to start American company again(After earning 119 million)

So he completed a cycle from step 1 to 6 with more money but lost the opportunity to make it BIGGER like LinedIn or Facebook.

It is not the first time that an IT guy has done something like following example :

1. World fame Sabeer Bhatia, got educated in India and US.
2. Worked for apple as hardware engineer
3. Worked with Jack smith to setup and developed the world famous email brand - Hotmail
4. Sold Hotmail to Microsoft for around $400 million in 1997
5. Worked for Microsoft for 1 year....and now a days doing many things like ......

Above is my thoughtabout this acquisition and somehow it gives me an idea that America are the real business nation who knows how to do the business and dictate the market. They have the simple practice either grow faster or buy the one who have the potential to make Americans grow faster. Indians who are god gifted,hard working and laborious( and have seen life in India ) and love money and recognition falls easily into the trap.......they get everything but INDIAN Business loose the opportunity to be the lead the world and be 'LEADER'....:(

PS : A question that is popping up in my mind ...why India does not even a single world leading product brand ???...may be someone have answer .....
