Respect And Protect Women!

Bhishma, the warrior hero in Mahabharata, had once advised Yudhishtira-“A society that does not respect women will perish.” it was this lack of respect towards the fairer sex that caused the two great wars in our Hindu epics- the 18 Day Battle in Mahabharata after Draupadi was humiliated in front of all the men and in Ramayana, the war in lanka when Sita was kidnapped by Ravana.

Even Chanakya refers to the priority that must be given to women during a crisis:

From a dangerous situation he should move away with effort, after removing the womenfolk.”

In other words, even when one has to run away from disasters, or a dangerous situation, he should do so only after rescuing the women. one may ask, where is the need for such lessons when there’s so much gender equality?

Well, ask your own female friends and relatives whether they feel equal in society, and if any harassment aimed at their gender has ended completely.

Base Your own decisions on their answer. And if you believe a change in mindsets is a must, read on to see how we can respect and protect women in our daily lives.

In our work places

》Today, the number of working women has increased in all areas. Be it in the field of business, education, or civil services.

All of us have to interact with women. Remember that men and women think differently. It’s a basic psychological difference.

when men and women work on a common project together, they bring in different perspectives. Now if you are the boss, see to it that there is a gender mix in every project. If you are an employee, inculcate not only respect towards women, but also a receptiveness to their point of view.

In our homes

》 while a house is incomplete without a woman, the women in our family also have talents that need to be given wings.

identify their talents and give them freedom to explore their potential, regardless of whether it’s your daughter, wife, sister or mother.

As A Nation

》even though women have proved themselves in every field, We still have a long way to go. Just look at the number of female infanticides we still hear about, the low percentage of girl literacy, the prevailing evil practice of dowry, etc.

Swami Vivekananda had rightly said- Educate the girl child and the nation will awaken.”

Ethics In Business!

There is a huge misunderstanding about Kautilya, also known as Chanakya. People generally believe that he was a shrewd and cunning person. That’s just a myth.

While training his students in the management of a kingdom, he emphasised the importance of having a sound philosophy in order to become a good leader. Ethics And Morals were top priority for him.

In the very first chapter of Arthashastra, titled The Topic of Training, he outlines the importance of a spiritual foundation.

Therefore He says in the Arthashastra,

philosophy is ever thought of as the lamp of all science, as the means of all actions and as the support of all laws and duties.”

The root of any business lies in its core value system – its philosophy. This was also pointed out by the father of modern management, Peter Drucker. He said, “profits are by-products of business, not it’s very goal.” Kautilya brings out the finer points of the importance of ethics in business.

Guidance

》The value system created by the founders of an organisation always becomes the guiding force for the organisation. Even during calamities and difficult times, these values becomes a lightoue, providing direction. like a lamp, it guides us through darkness.

Decision In Action

》How to proceed, even when drawing up a plan, is always the big question in business. Either one can take the easy route where success is quick and, yet, short-lived. Or, one can take the road less travelled where success is delayed, but is everlasting. only an ethical person can easily handle these tough decisions.

Adhering To Law

》A good businessman is not just law- fearing, but also law-abiding. He follows the law of the land as set up by the constitution. At the same time, he also understands the higher universal law of nature. His thoughts become very powerful. Such a businessman contributes to society and brings great economic prosperity to all persons connected with him.

Doing one’s Duty

》For such a person, duty is priority over rights. He understands the importance of giving more than what is taken and producing more than what is consumed. His work and duty is not influenced by pressure, but is born out of joy and service.

FAILURE IS IMPORTANT!

All we do is to be successful in this world full of strugglers. But most people quit when they face failure. Failure is just a first step towards success.

Failure is what which teaches us the right way to get succeed, failure is what which makes us strong by learning the mistakes, failure is what which makes us responsible for not making any mistakes ahead.

When Failure occurs, We either fight it back or we just bend down to it. The problem is that when failure occurs, we forget about our goals, our efforts which we have given all into it, our sacrifices which we have made for that goal but when we face the beginning results we can’t afford to lose the end results.

Failure is what which makes us to hustle more harder, it is what which shows that we are on the correct path.

The path is beautiful if you start enjoying every failure and success and learn from your mistakes and be a kind and humble when you become successful.

Life is beautiful in it self, so every step means something new for you.

Most Won’t I Will!

This Is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

there was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job.

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

it ended up that Everybody blamed somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

“if there’s a job that needs to be done, and it’s not specified who’s job it is… just do it.

Do The Things, that most others aren’t willing to do.”

Control Over The Senses!

As Stephen Covey Says In SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE, “Private victory Leads To Public Victory.”

A person who wants to be successful in his life has to avoid Certain Negative Behaviours. Controlling those senses is what makes you an extraordinary person.

1.LUST( KAAM )

LUST is the deep hunger for any object which results from over- attachment.

2.ANGER ( KRODHA )

Maintaining a cool head is very essential. A Short- tempered person is neither Appreciated nor liked by any one of his loved ones. Such A person Is Very Unpredictable. One Should be able to control oneself in all circumstances, mostly importantly in Public.

3.GREED ( LOBBHA )

GANDHIJI had rightly said ” There is enough in this world for every person’s need but not enough for one man’s greed.” Satisfaction does not mean complacency.

4.PRIDE( MANA )

Even when at the top, a person should be able to initiate more and more work. However, a feeling that “I Am the doer” should not be entertained. A Highly Egoistic person is sure to lose his worth in the long run.

5.ARROGANCE ( MADH )

An arrogant person will always take the credit for every success, while he blame failures on others. His motto should be, ” It is ‘we’ who have succeeded not ‘I’.”

6.OVER-EXCITEMENT ( HARSHA )

A person should never get over excited. Expressing extreme happiness or sadness has to be avoided. when the whole world is on fire, it is only one with a balanced mind who can find a solution.
