DEAR FELLOW HUMANS

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 !
