“Karmayogi ” book on Shri E. Sreedharan : Gita for all the Project Managers

Karmayogi

Finally, today I completed reading this beautiful book “KarmaYogi” A biography of E.Sreedharan. Without any doubt I can say this book is a “Gita for all the Project Managers”.

I am a fan of Shri E.Sreedharan from my college days. The assertiveness, the honesty, mighty power of this Project Management stalwart always fascinated me. I am a big fan of people who take risks and assertively do what they believe without fearing anything.
However, I always wondered from where do these mighty people like E Sreedharan derive their strength from. How are they fearless. Is it just because on the grip of their subject. Is it because of their people management skills. It has everything to do with their value system which is Strong like a fort which is built because of spiritual strength. Such fearless, assertive people who are best in whatever they do are sincere servants of God. Immaterial of the religion they practice, the strength they derive because of the connection to God makes them strong, charismatic and humble.This brings immense grace, they have an aura which is unmatchable to any others.

Do buy this book and read it leisurely chapter wise, while reading each chapter research for videos, news ,documentaries related to each major project. You get to learn so many project management lessons, lessons of values, strength and resilience.

Do gift this book to all the people you care and want them to be best version of themselves.

Loads of Love,

Strength of a Woman

radharani

Some of the Indian advertisements, movies on women empowerment, feminism and equal society are misleading.

We see a girl in Saree or Salwar Kameez with Bindi, long hair ( basically it’s to depict illiterate state of that girl) joining a spoken English course, learning English and we see empowered version of her in “Jeans and Tee Shirts with short hair”( to depict the empowered state of her). Basically the morons want to convey that sticking to your roots, being traditional you can’t learn English or get empowerment.

We see a dark/ dusky skinned dull girl failing in everything and she applies “Fair and lovely”, she becomes clever, active and successful.Heights of assoholism of Indian advertising.

Dressing or skin color or being masculine doesn’t mean empowerment. They don’t define or contribute to the strength of Woman.I ain’t against in western dressing or whatever dressing..in fact I am fond of my Veramoda or whatever dresses equally to the extent I love my Kanchivaram silk sarees or Cotton Sarees. However, I feel funny when people start judging your “strength” by your dressing, your levels of “Aggressiveness” and other parameters. Being “Womanish” is not weakness, it is the absolute “Strength”. To fit into the World, woman need not make herself like a “Man”.

If we want to see real Women of Strength of India, We need to refer to the Women in Indian History. “Strength of Woman” ain’t in unnecessarily proving they are better than men. Strength of Woman is in celebrating the power of feminity and not letting anyone daring to treat you in disrespectful manner.

Radha Rani is one such woman.In my honest opinion, She is epitome of feminity and how powerful she is being feminine is something interesting.
It’s not that we can manage to live like her in 21st century, however there is so much to ponder, think about and realign our thoughts on “Feminism” 🙂

Among Radha’s innumerable transcendental attributes, below are few:

Radharani is very sweet and most charming to look at;
Radhika’s eyes are doe-like and restless;
Sri Radha’s face is smiling and every blissful’
Auspicious, beautiful lines adorn Sri Radha’s lotus hands and feet;
Srimati Radharani is the most exceptional singer and vina player;
Radha’s words are charming and pleasing;
Radha is expert at telling jokes ;
Srimati Radhika is exceptionally humble;
Radha is the embodiment of mercy and compassion;
Sri Radha’s intelligence and wit surpasses all;
Shyness is the shining gem in Radha’s character’
Srimati Radharani is the beacon light of modesty and never swerves from the path of honesty;
Radha is never perturbed by worldly sorrow or misery;
Sri radha has unbounded gravity and sublimity;
Radha possesses Mahabhava, the highest sentiments of love;
Radha’s transcendental glories are shining in all the worlds;
Sri Radha is most affectionate to her superiors;

Is Women’s Day Still Relevant ?

Women being Women is beautiful. Women competing with Men, Women trying to become like men is just trying to prove that Men are superior. Men are men. Women are Women. Both are necessary and equally important in nature. Agree that Women have come a long way to this point.

However, gone are the days when men can dominate women out of their male chauvinism; gone are the days women can play the card of “weak, tender, damsel in distress” in the world of tough competition. Glad to be in such generation and such societies where competent people survive immaterial of their gender. If you don’t study, if you are not financially independent, if you don’t own your life…you suffer whether you are woman or man. Struggle is same for every human in current society.

So celebration of womanhood, manhood is great today, tommorrow and everyday. However, acting as if all women are suffering because of men everywhere, anywhere at home or home or in street is stupid feminism.

Blessed are we who live in these days where women do all physically tough things too which were earlier restricted only to men…we are blessed to be in such evolving societies where men share the responsibilities of cooking, house work, parenting along with their partners.

True celebration of humanity is when we don’t have specific Women’s Day or Men’s Day. True celebration is when everyday is day of equality and celebration of every human.

I ain’t a fan of Women’s day or Men’s Day…am blessed to have several mentors who are men and women..I am constantly guided by them on how to be God conscious, strong and human all the times
At the same time am going to punch anyone badly immaterial of man or woman who treats me badly for no mistake of mine.

Listen to this beautiful song O Womaniya 🙂
