India’s Most Loved CEO


Whenever I have a conversation with people who are in the corporate world, they complain about how they are bullied by their seniors and how diplomacy works against them within their team, though they do have a soft corner for the CEO of the company, why you may ask? It is the HR’s endeavour to keep the” bossy CEO” in good light so that the staff do not have complains about the CEO, sounds ridiculous right? Actually NO!! I have many friends employed as HR’s in different sectors and firms, any they love sharing stories.

 Who are CEO’s? Answering all the dummies and for information of the known – CEO’s belong to that rare breed of people who are responsible to formulate the RIGHT decisions, the people who take responsibility of switching from PLAN A to PLAN B.

Contradicting the above, let me shift focus onto INDIA’S MOST LOVED CEO, have you heard of this before?  Seems like quite interesting, doesn’t it?

Plan went wrong


My Friend Chatur Ramalingum explains his sorry exit from MNC … !!

And before I knew it, I had hit “Send”, oh god what did i do, i hope that this doesn’t reach them ! please god save me from this misery.

Guess what? here i was in a confused state !! when bad luck strikes it strikes hard, here is the insights of what i would say “this should not have happened”

Few weeks back, i was assigned a project to survey, a secret project to know what the employee’s think about their managers and boss, this does sound hilarious but as they say “the boss is always right”.

So here i was in a mission to betray my colleagues emotion towards their manager and boss on a PPT (powerpoint presentation)!

Plan was to disguise my talks in such a way that i had sympathy towards them, a sense of worry, this was the only tool to take out best of what they had stored inside them which they never had the guts to speak aloud towards their higher authority …

opportunities were ample … conversing when we had tea breaks, lunch, evening breaks, after office etc…!! so i used all of it to know what they felt and what changes they need !!
I guess i had cover all the employees and their frustration talks .. now was the time to had to the creative table and jot the points !! good part of this presentation was i wanted to keep the comments author anonymous, if the managers required details i might provide them on the basis that they don’t reveal the source as me !!

So coffee and laptop my 2 friends did there job and i drafted 2 presentation NAMED “DON’T BE MAD” and other “PLEASE CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE” !! lol i know its provoking to the managers but then it keeps them hooked to the presentation !!

The worst thing in the drafts were that i had not removed the names of the employees as for yet in both the presentation, which i was intending to do afterwords !! finishing the presentation on late sunday night i felt a sleep without removing the names and did not send the email…

As usual i woke up late monday morning .. My boss called up early and asked me: i cant see the presentation on my email! i was like (holy ****) i told him i have completed the presentation and would send him in 15mins !!

In a congested state of mind and my boss voice playing drums in my head … in a hurry i attached the 2 presentation without removing names of the employees in the comments and cc’d it to the team as well !! (in a team email every one in the office gets the email its like a broadcast message) … as it was my old habit to cc all being a HR of the company !

As i was having break-first i heard a ring .. it was my phone … boss calling … crap now what …
Boss exclaimed : i need you here right now !! i said leave everything and just rush to office !!
rest was history as they say !!!

Here is the snapshot which played R.I.P. for me !!

Refine to achieve


The world goes round in a circular motion
without any second thought
trusting the gravity
with utmost precision

Likewise, falling apart seems to be easy
but the thing that holds you back
is your destiny !

Destiny plays its part,
to make us understand what we have not achieved
making us refined in every stage
till we are refined to understand its meaning !

If there is a thought which needs refining
we listen our inner soul after consulting !
But when that refined thought needs consulting
that is what i call creating !!

The journey to create something new never ends
it starts when refinements are precised redesigned
to overcome all aspects of doubts
and have a functional excellence like no else !

What is recession?


This Story is about a man who once upon a time was selling Hotdogs by the roadside. He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers. He was hard of hearing, so he never listened to the radio. His eyes were weak, so he never watched television. 

But enthusiastically, he sold lots of hotdogs. He was smart enough to offer some attractive schemes to increase his sales. His sales and profit went up. He ordered more a more raw material and buns and use to sale more. He recruited few more supporting staff to serve more customers. He started offering home deliveries. Eventually he got himself a bigger and better stove. 

As his business was growing, the son, who had recently graduated from College, joined his father. Then something strange happened. 

The son asked, “Dad, aren’t you aware of the great recession that is coming our way?” The father replied, “No, but tell me about it.” The son said, “The international situation is terrible. The domestic situation is even worse. We should be prepared for the coming bad times.” 

The man thought that since his son had been to college, read the papers, listened to the radio and watched TV. He ought to know and his advice should not be taken lightly. So the next day onwards, the father cut down the his raw material order and buns, took down the colourful signboard, removed all the special schemes he was offering to the customers and was no longer as enthusiastic. He reduced his staff strength by giving layoffs. Very soon, fewer and fewer people bothered to stop at his hotdog stand. And his sales started coming down rapidly, same is the profit. 

The father said to his son, “Son, you were right”. “We are in the middle of a recession and crisis. I am glad you warned me ahead of time.” 

Moral of The Story: It’s all in your MIND! And we actually FUEL this recession much more than we think we do!!!!!!!!!! !! 

What can we take away from this story??
1. How many times we confuse intelligence with good judgment? 
2. Choose your advisers carefully but use your own judgment
3. A person or an organization will survive forever, if they have the 5 Cs * Character * Commitment * Conviction * Courtesy * Courage 

The tragedy today is that there are many walking encyclopedias that are living failures. 

The More practical and appropriate views on this economic recession is –
This is the time to reunite together for any small or a big organization 
This is the time to motivate and retain people which are the biggest asset 
This is the time to show more commitments to the customers
This is the time show values of our company to the world
This is the time to stand by our Nation.
