Few random thoughts triggered by CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)…

…on

THE INNATE GOODNESS IN HUMAN BEINGS

DESIRABLE LEADERSHIP TRAITS …

And a MUST RETHINK on sophisticated jargons and cliches that seem to drive democracies all across the world …

1. A crisis of this magnitude has once again emphasised the presence of INNATE GOODNESS IN HUMAN BEINGS ( barring a few exceptions on the part of countries, institutions , individuals )

2. Leadership Traits that have been exhibited in India and other countries …highlight the fact that we need such compassionate and creative leaders…not necessarily during crisis…but at all times ! While the leader has to be ‘tough’…he/she needs to be humane …primarily !!!

3. Not only the the top leaders , but everybody down the line in a hierarchy need(s) to see themselves as servant-leaders and not some privileged ‘ nawaabs’…at all times !

4. Many cliches and jargons seem to have become hallmarks of democratic governance ..
And these need to be thrown out ASAP…

THESE ARE : ( a few )

A. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS/EXPEDIENCY

B. COLLATERAL DAMAGE

C. NEED TO KNOW BASIS

D. ” LAW SHALL TAKE ITS OWN COURSE”

E. RELIGIOUS/IDEOLOGICAL/CASTE VOTE BANKS…

5. IN A SOCIETY OR A DEMOCRACY…each one should be accountable…primarily to oneself…be it the common folk or the leaders…
SELF ACCOUNTABILITY … and listening to our INNER TRUE VOICE…is the only way forward on the road ….of human evolution !

Thanks…. and kudos to the inherent goodness in all of us !

OUT OF THE BOX THINKING

OUT OF THE BOX THIN KING

 

Is it out of the box thinking?
Or an out of the box ‘thin king’?

Thin king is almost an abnormality
as fatheads are being elected in every single city

and….’Thinking king’ is seldom a possibility…
people simply vote….they don’t check the ability

In these places called mature democracies
We often come across certain hypocrisies

Those who think , are out of the mainstream anyway !
Let them think ; in or out of the box…while we make hay!
