    Just as being able to see your reflection in the mirror helps you to fix your own face and hair, feedback on your characteristics and behaviour helps you to develop your management skills and improve your judgment.
  15. Companies invest money in the name of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Well, on the surface, I suppose this should be seen as a ‘good’ thing that they realise their responsibility towards the society. However, I would like to ask them a simple question: Instead of looking for some mega projects for the so-called CSR, can they actually take a more responsible role in the society by doing less damage, if not more good?

    No, I do not intend to get into any discussion regarding the wounds that Mother Nature has suffered due to the corporate greed - though this adds to the list, it is still more evident and concrete and, in some ways, already in discussion in some form or another.
  16. Have you ever thought about it:
    • Why are our schools such boring places that the children wait for this punishment to get over?
    • Why do the creativity and excitement of the child get killed in the name of the so-called ‘discipline’ or ‘good behavior’?
    • If one purpose of education is to think, reflect, ask questions and seek answers, why are children discouraged to ask questions? Why is the focus on compliance and conformity, not creativity, reflection and critical thinking?
    • Why are the children not allowed to read what they want to read and when they want to read? Why is learning compartmentalised unnaturally into grades, subjects and lessons/ periods?
    • If every child is a unique creation of God, why do the schools expect them to learn (in fact, memorise) the same thing, the same way, and why do they measure them against exactly the same standards?
    • What rights do the schools have to tag the children as ‘slow’ learners or as ‘failures’? And, why does the system see it as a fault of the child, and not that of the school or the educators that they have failed to provide a context where the child can take interest, engage and evolve?
      If you think deeply, you will realise that the whole system of schooling is geared towards matters (uniformity, competition, standardization, grading, conformity and compliance) that are the least important for our children’s upbringing and education, whereas, the most crucial matters (collaboration, cooperation, compassion, gratitude, creativity and critical thinking) get completely ignored!

  17. It is our nature to emulate people who we look up to as role models. Our attachment to their ‘good qualities’ makes us blind to their faults and we become so much like them without realizing the effect on us and on our surroundings. A society’s values are reflected in its role models. When a Donald Trump, Barak Obama or anyone else becomes a President/Leader elected by majority of voters it is clear what that society values the most.
