I love politicians; they are the bestest, awesomest, wonderful-erest dude, dudettes and duderinos you can find anywhere on this planet. Heck, you wouldn’t find such fine people in this whole universe or twini-verse, tripni-verse or quadrini-verse; and that’s a lot of ‘verse’, right there. Basically, they are the supermen/superwomen of this planet. I look up… Read More »

Strangely enough, it seems that the world is chock full of people who would like to wallow in a state of constant misery rather than enjoy moments of happiness. I am not saying we should be jumping with joy when the deck is stacked against us. We all go through our down days, we all have… Read More »
It always surprises me how people casually and flippantly exalt nincompoops to the position of a “leader.” The first time I witnessed such an event take place in the corporate world, it was during a town hall meeting I attended, eons ago. A so-called “transformational leader” was visiting us and there was a town hall meeting with him… Read More »

In almost all non-Information Technology (IT) organizations, the IT department/functional area, like transpiration or friction, is a necessary evil. The IT Department, in those organizations, is a cost center, which means it doesn’t generate any revenue for the company but costs the company money to run it. Therefore, you would hope that it is imperative… Read More »
What would you do if you learnt today that you have six months to live? Would you live the last few months to the fullest or would you spend your remaining days just waiting for the inevitable? Would you go into denial, turn bitter and angry at life, feel cheated when facing your mortality, or… Read More »
A few days back, a link to a video of a cattle smuggling “operation” across the India-Bangladesh border made its way to my inbox. The short YouTube video showed a few cattle smugglers “airlifting” cattle from India to Bangladesh during the early morning hours.

How many leaders—business, political and otherwise—are wearing “masks” to hide their true self? It seems that the world is full of people who claim to be leaders, but are faux leaders or, worse, no leader at all. Throughout history many powerful leaders who wielded absolute authority have used that authority to betray, manipulate, lie to and hoodwink the masses, to further their selfish agendas. It seems there are many sociopaths in leadership roles worldwide. Although, human history is replete with examples of destruction being wrought by faux leaders or false prophets, we the people are none the wiser about their hidden agenda. We remain divided over petty differences and continue to genuflect at the altar of these destructive individuals, and they continue to exploit us all. This cannot continue; a reboot is needed to usher in a new tomorrow, but the question is—How?
