Politics: Macro Strategy vs Micro-Efficiency

When it comes to Politics, particularly in Elections season,  we often here brave and gigantic ambitions of every political party. This is a macro strategy of what we should do to become a better and more prosperous state. But when once the party comes into power, they soon realize achieving those dreams is a very tough task. Many a times, they have to start from scratch, built an eco system, create an establishment, policies, guidelines and advocate and teach so that beneficiaries will start using it. Another aspect of it is, it takes time to do all this and they may not even see any tangible political benefits in their own term. So, instead of pursuing those dreams, despite the hurdles, many tend to focus on Micro-efficiency, making an already working system, little better, for easy political mileage.

We are fortunate enough to have at least few leaders that could see beyond their own term and change the direction of the ship and take huge risks at a Macro level. For instance, Chandra Babu Naidu is a prime example for many such Macro strategies that finally brought once a 15th rank state not only to limelight but also to put at 2nd Rank in many aspects of development.

Major problem with Macro strategies is that almost 99% of people do not understand the impact. Because, many people are short sighted and demand instant gratification, than a substantial gains in the long term. So, there is  a huge risk of people considering it as 'anti-people' or as we have seen in last elections, 'anti poor'. Its neither.

You may compare with all the terms Congress was in power and Chandra Babu Naidu at the helm of office. You would see what we saw. Its a huge difference in attitude and direction. Even operational efficiency was at the peak during TDP's term.

Please note that we are not supporters of TDP or Chandra Babu Naidu. We are only reminding a few macro strategies he decided on, that have been generating much required traction for the state economy. For which, we truly salute ( a politician finally).  We also covered an Insurance for poor scheme being piloted by current Government, recently.  By covering say, we don't support Congress as such, but just the noble deed.

Let us know what you think is more important and how people perceive major political and economic strategies.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
