Why you should startup

Why you should startup | Self Improvement & Business | Scoop.it
This is not a success story nor is a step by step guide on how to start a company. This post is just about the thought process I had while starting a company and why I decided to ignore everything and still startup.   We live in a country where our parents teach us and keep reminding us again and again that If we don't study we will not get a good job, we ll miss the chance to be a doctor or engineer and worse will not get married If we don't have a job. This fear is what drives most of the kids of this generation and they are sub consciously aiming at landing into a good pay job from the day someone first asks them - "What is your ambition in life.? What do you want to be when you grow up?". I am sure it happened to everyone reading this article and If this never happened,....

Teaching and learning

It feels better to describe the thing as an outside observer and then explain it to an inside participant. That is why I will remain outside and refer to ‘you’ the insider. Do you think teaching improves the learner? Have you ever asked yourself what constitutes real learning? I bet you have been, and you are going through the process of learning. You claim you will continue to do the same until you die. Relatively lesser number of human beings claim they teach whatever they know to others and in the process they get all the pleasures of higher learning. All parents claim they teach their children at some point in time or another. No one seems to be evaluating the results of all this teaching and learning, let alone evaluate the effectiveness. You can contest the previous statement as it c....

On enlightenment

Enlightenment is the topic everyone is interested in. Since I am writing on enlightenment, I am not in a position to claim that I am not interested in that.The fact must anyway be indirectly stated. I am not chasing the enlightenment for obvious reasons. You should be contesting those unstated reasons vehemently. In any case I have been bestowed with some great thoughts which are related to this hot topic. Mind you, they are very important thoughts. One person who claimed himself as enlightened also said he got nothing being enlightened. Of course, that was two and half thousand years ago. That leaves me with a question. If enlightenment results in getting nothing why hanker for it? Perhaps, the answer itself might turn out to be a very enlightening one. Recently, there were few other clai....

Rajinikanth Marketing & Management Mantra

Entrepreneurship Development

Entrepreneurship Development | Self Improvement & Business | Scoop.it
Entrepreneurship is the process of setting up one’s own business as distinct from pursuing any other economic activity, be it employment or practising some profession. The person who set-up his business is called an entrepreneur. The output of the process, that is, the business unit is called an enterprise. You may invoke ‘subject-verb-object (SVO)’ relationship in English grammar to clearly understand these terms. (See Figure on SVO Analogy) It is interesting to note that entrepreneurship besides providing self-employment to the entrepreneur is responsible to a great extent for creation and expansion of opportunities for the other two economic activities, that is, employment and profession. (Can you think why and how?) Further, each business gives rise to other businesses– the suppliers o....

Fighting against

At the outset of this short essay, I am inviting you for a fight. You might ask ‘fighting about what?’ I do not care. I have given you an invitation for fighting with no reason. Don’t you take a lot of pride in being recognized as a fighter? As far as I can see there are umpteen number of people in this world who would die to be recognized as a ‘great fighter’. Are you having any doubt? Check with any politician worth his salt. Why only politician? Check with a religious leader. Soldiers dedicate their life for fighting. I invite you to take up the fighting with me on the opinion expressed in this essay. That is going to tell me in no uncertain terms that you are a pretty unique person in this world because you do not have any other pending fights in your life. Such people are a very rare ....
