The much hyped Middle Class in India are the biggest hypocrites.

Five years ago, one of my Colleagues, a Senior Consultant working in Oman, but hailing from Tamil Nadu was vociferous about the Corruption in his home State. 1/n Image
Most of the days one can hear him accuse both the AIADMK and DMK of destroying Tamil Nadu. He was a practicing Christian (his father having converted), and his wife was a Senior Government Servant. 2/n
We all used to agree with him that the politicians in TN were a class apart in looting the State and how black money was the root cause of all evil.

Then his son passed his XII standard with around 70% marks. 3/n

Born with Gaja Kersari Yoga, I have always been or aimed to be the leader wherever I am. If I am not, it makes me very uneasy.

Naturally born leaders in the Ithihasams like Sree Raman became my heroes. 1/n
However, Age has brought with it the much wanted wisdom, broader perspective and a fine tuning of the mindset which makes me appreciate the contribution of non leaders too. 2/n
There are many silent contributors in our epics, and in our work place who deserve much more respect and recognition than we give them. They do silently efficient work all the time, without being in the limelight, thereby allowing the leader to focus on other issues. 3/n

I dont remember tweeting this. If I had and someone has ready it already, my apologies upfront.

One of my earliest memories is the popular, melodious malayalam film songs blaring through a loudspeaker in Vadakara in late 1960's - 1/n
Songs played on well used Record Players using a primitive amplifier system. It meant that another 'Payattu' was being organized.

'Payattu' ('Kuri kalyanam' as it is called in some other parts) was a feature in northern Kerala those days. 2/n
It, to my mind, represented all that was good about the society. A society that came to the help of a needy person in a small rural setting.

The system works like this. 3/n

India has a culture that goes back more than 5000 years. The country has weathered many a storm, whether it be invasions, alien rule, colonial ambitions and a post independance chaos. The Indus valley civilization, along with the Nile Valley and Mesapatomia civilizations, 1/n
were far ahead of their time in the areas of management, planning and organization.

The problem with Indian Management Education and the Management style is that it does not take into account the Indian ethos. 2/n
Traditional wisdom says that Asians in general, and Indians in particular are driven by emotions than by reason, but the corollary is true for Westerners, basically the Americans, who developed the current management system. 3/n

Many youngsters from Kerala went to AbuDubai 😁 in 1970s. Most of their parents were poor rural folks. Their kids abroad will bring Silk Kurtas,Veshtis, Torches, Long Gold Chains etc every year

These changed the Parents. They became haughty and bragged 1/n
One such was our Appappan (Let us say Old Man).

He was in a rural town and made it a point to show of his chains, rings, dress, Rayban Glass to anyone whom he met

Someone would ask him

Appappa, Appappa entha ithu? (Appappa what is this?)

Appappan would reply swelling with pride,

"Atho makkale. Ente Makan Dubayinnu konduvannatha."

Then will pause and to give emphasis, will add,

"Ithu pole rendu moonnu veetilundu"

(Child, this is brought by my son in Dubai. There are 2-3 like this at home) 3/n

The year was 1983-84.I was in my final year of B Sc (Physics) in Govt Victoria College, Palakkad. We had lab sessions twice a week. Since most of the equipment in the lab were old, it was impossible to get the readings that confirms to the experiment, 1/n
especially in the Thermodynamic lab that has heat based practical. We had a very senior Professor in charge of our batch, Prof.Ramakrishnan Nair. A man with a heart of gold but a very hard exterior. 2/n
He signs our Record book but rarely comes to the lab as the lab duty is assigned to a young Junior Lecturer, Devaraj.

Devraj was an unfriendly character and viewed all students as his enemies. The sentiment was reciprocated by us and we locked horns with him regularly. 3/n
