Character – An inspiring anecdote

purshottam_das_tandon

Rajarshi Purushottam Das Tandon was at the time a Member of Parliament.

Once, when he went to collect his salary cheque in the Parliament Office, he asked the clerk there to transfer the amount directly to a “Public Service Fund”. The officials over there were pleasantly surprised by his generosity. One of his colleagues standing nearby said: “There are hardly four hundred rupees as your allowance for the whole month. And you are donating the entire amount for social service?” Tandon ji humbly replied – “You see, I have seven sons and all are earning sufficiently to raise their families; each one sends me one hundred rupees per month.

Entrepreneur Nation

Entrepreneur-Nation-2

I remember my first visit to Taipei in late 90's. A prosperous capital city of a small island country.

As a visitor from India, I was awestruck by the well functioning city, beautiful people and all round prosperity. I later visited other parts of Taiwan and even in smaller towns & cities, the trend was pleasantly replicated.

I was really surprised as to how a small island nation, with little or, no natural resources could afford to become such a success.

And why, we in India cannot?

Turn Problems into Opportunities

Once upon a time, there was a farmer and he had a donkey. On an unfortunate day, while going to the fields, the donkey fell into a well. It cried frantically to be rescued.

The former thought the donkey is old & useless. In any case, the well was not being used and he had been planning to shut it by filling it with earth.

"Let me fill up the well and this will also alleviate the suffering of the poor animal", he thought and tried to justify this course of action.
