ITS NOT MYTHOLOGY

mahabharata_war

There is a general term that has been given to stories about the Gods and great Sages of India. It is also used in the context of the two greatest epics the world would have eve seen, the Ramayan and the Mahabharat. They are all collectively called Mythology.

Mythology means, myths collectively; the body of stories associated with a culture or institution or person. Well being a proud Indian there is one thing I believe, that these stories are not myths. They are our HISTORY. A history that the entire country is no doubt , entirely, extremely and totally proud of. I am proud to be an Indian and overwhelmed that my fate has given me a chance to be here.

I am proud that my ancestors were in some way connected to such great epics with the rest of the world studies and preaches.

TERRORISM

070430_iraqTerror_hmed_11a.h2

There is something we don’t know about terrorism. Something which our mind always ignores or to be precise, something that our mind is always asked to ignore. THE STUFF BEHIND THE SCENES.

According to me terrorism and its derivatives are the best sold idea in the entire history of mankind. It surpasses every other commodity including Pepsi by an astronomical margin. This term and its effects can me much worse than a worldwide war.

Just imagine, a man (Mr. X) used to take his dog out for a walk every morning until he saw the news and heard the world leaders preach terrorism. Mr. X is of a kind that constitutes 90% of the world’s population. These people believe what they hear or see. As a result, Mr. X stays at home almost all the time and even if he does go out, he is haunted by the scenes of terror attacks that he has been watch all day long on the idiot box. He has lost his peace of mind.

It so happens that every international summit including the G8 and the SAARC discuss terrorism to be a major problem world over. Day in and day out it is fed into Mr. X’s brain that terrorism is all around him and the best he can do to avoid it is to stay at home and obey the dumb leaders who manage to escape every attack in one way or the other.

Terrorism exists in our minds. What we know is what se see and we actually don’t know anything else. News is presented to us as a ready to digest meal every day and we just take it in without questioning anything around us. They expect us to fall into the traps that they lay. They want us to live in a terrified state for the rest of our lives and we are doing just that. This is where the catch lies. Let your mind decide what is right or wrong. Stop being a slave of what is being shown or told.

The only way to curb terrorism is to reach for its roots and not use it for dirty politics. Don’t blindly give into what is being shown to you. We don’t know what is INSIDE.

GREAT QUOTES BY MY IDOL

  • A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.

  • Apple’s market share is bigger than BMW’s or Mercedes’s or Porsche’s in the automotive market. What’s wrong with being BMW or Mercedes?

  • Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.

  • Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

  • I think we’re having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we’re always trying to do better.

  • I want to put a ding in the universe.

  • Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

  • It is piracy, not overt online music stores, which is our main competitor.

  • It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we’d given customers what they said they wanted, we’d have built a computer they’d have been happy with a year after we spoke to them – not something they’d want now.

  • Pretty much, Apple and Dell are the only ones in this industry making money. They make it by being Wal-Mart. We make it by innovation.

  • Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

  • The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay.

  • To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines.

  • Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?
  • You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.
