THINK GLOBAL START LOCAL

In the days of Covid-19 when there is no respite and we have to live with it for a greater period of time, I’m seeking ideas for a brighter future of all living species on earth.

I am thinking on how we can contribute to stay safe, live better, become more self reliant, using local products for daily needs, less dependency on foreign goods and to boost our economy.

Many among us might have similar thoughts. Thoughts like what we can do staying home where we are when there is no scope of a new job opportunity. How to become an earning member in the family.

Looking forward to learn from your ideas.

ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

It has always been a controversial social issue whether death penalty is a need or not for any crime.

I have little personal views on this topic. At present we have this provision for heinous crimes when the convicts under trial are found guilty of the crime.

We need to think how liberal can we be to either forgive or punish someone for a crime. The primary cause behind any crime is false education and lack of values. When people live a life not well connected with others in society they tend to develop criminal mindset as pain of others don’t affect them. They live and die for their own amusement.


Few tend to feel they are more powerful than others and what if they do something extraordinary that average people can’t think of. They can always find an escape route. They misuse when they don’t know the real use of power.

The purpose of any punishment should be to bring change in society. Change in our thoughts and action. We may look at change in others but the convicts are not allowed in this case. There is no scope for them to change and come back to society again. Have we started believing some people can’t be changed at all.

People with a criminal state of mind tend to be more inhuman by nature these days. They sometimes commit a crime to have fun without any thought of the outcome of their madly action.

With capital punishment the scope for change is shrinking and intolerance increasing leading to a more inhumane society. While some may see it as an example for others to guard themselves and not even think of committing such a crime, in reality we observe little change in society with the attitude of people. Fear factor may not work well all the time.

People these days demand punishment and they feel happy when government fulfills their demand. I don’t understand well if it’s to give justice or under pressure. They demand to put an end to another life that caused great pain to their lives. As an outcome the possibility of false encounters can’t be ruled out.

Inhumanity at rise and government feels pressure while making decisions. As citizens we need to respect a decision and should have no say in judicial matters. Media here has great responsibility not to provoke people.

There are many constraints now because of the mindset of people and the way we have built our society that prevents us thinking about any historic decision for sustainable social change. We grew ourselves up and developed that mindset over a brief period.

We have to think seriously now whether time has come or not. When I started thinking about this sort of punishment I went back to history and read what great personalities had to say about it. Below are few of the thoughts from great indian orators as it is published in the “penguin book of modern Indian speeches…”

GLOBAL SAFETY & SECURITY

Security is such a big concern and it has so many directions to explore, it’s difficult to ensure global safety unless we understand and work upon the need.

WHY SET GOAL !!

Growth is a common goal almost every organization works for. We do business for growth and nobody likes to run a business incurring loss every time. We should accept that both profit and loss are part of any business like success/failure. This is universal truth and we can marginalize the impact of a failure when we understand the causes and work on that to overcome. When i talk of loss i mean less profit and not a complete loss.

I’ve asked this question several times to my own and others among my contacts. What is the need of a goal? During my school days, i was often asked (by my elders) what my aim in life is. All/most of us could have similar experience in their childhood. Few of my friends told me their experience what they replied. Their aim was to become a doctor, an engineer and to gain all such positions well recognized in the society. Let’s think where they learn all that at an early age of 10/12 years. Frankly speaking, i had no knowledge of what a doctor or an engineer is at that age. How many of us truly understand this? So, for me it’s all went in vein without a correct understanding. It’s our society (we create) that feeds our mind what we should become to gain financial freedom and social recognition. Any deviation to the original track is not acceptable and you should study hard (from now) to realize your career goals.

By goals people usually think of their company in general. You can have your personal goals too. I got much information and our little younger generation have a different view. They feel goals are optional and have no relation with our work. They will say like… We have been hired for work and getting paid for that. Goals are not important and all that is important to us is our work and salary. It is their understanding and without a complete understanding. Goals can actually reward us. Pre-set goals can help us travel our road better. They will help us a guide constantly reminding us what we have planned and where we are now in the journey.

There are few obstacles that prevent us realize our common goals (like to achieve expected profit margin). It’s not always lack of good talent/expertize. There can be many other factors associated. I did some analysis (to my capacity and understanding) looking at present standards and processes. What i understood from my analysis, we need a strong value chain to realize (and carry forward) our common goals aligned with the vision and values of our organization.

I understand we can’t achieve more without clear goals in mind. So, there is a need for setting goals. There are several factors that prompt me to think of various goals and what we can achieve in long run by setting and working on our goals. The most important factor is not really because it’s a mandatory need from every employee. We do that but it’s not really the biggest motivational factor. I am a social worker and i always think keeping the need of our society in mind. This is the challenge and opportunity for me. i was thinking of goals that will help us overcome all obstacles on the way to realize our common organizational goals. One such goal could be to develop a better society. This is the base motivational factor behind my goal setting.

After all the research and discussion, I’ve decide to come up with goals (with clear objectives) that will help us realize our vision and values across all levels of our organization and society in turn. The foundation of all my goals will be to make our value chain more strong. Though all are my personal thoughts, i strongly believe they are in-line with our company objectives and will help us realize our goals in long run.

What are your goals and objectives? Share your thoughts to help me learn better in my goal setting process.
