The sound of success and the light of happiness

The best part of our country India is that it is a land of celebrations and festivals. Celebrations are the most effective de-stressing events. Festivals are events where friends and relatives mingle with one another. These joyful moments add love and commitment to relationships. Children get introduced to the traditions and subsequently the  rituals get rolled over to subsequent generations.


A scene which I detest during festival days is that of the heaps of trash lying unaddressed on the streets. Meeta (assumed name of a homemaker) was very enthusiastic about Deepawali celebrations. She had loads of work to do before the festival. Not just the preparation of sweets and purchase of new cloths, major portion of her routine schedule was allocated towards cleanliness & housekeeping. A dirt free home is the wish of almost every family.  Even Meeta had arranged to sterilize her house. While her house was being cleaned all the garbage was getting abandoned into the nearby street. Litter generated inside house got dumped on the road side. This speaks about shortsightedness, “My house should be clean inside it does not matter if there is garbage outside”. Such individuals who demonstrate absolute lack of social responsibility should be condemned.  

Come deepawali and multifarious kind of crackers can be found creating noise pollution round the clock. The fireworks have become an almost integral part of this auspicious festival. It’s no more only the kids who have fun out of fireworks, it’s the grownups who play it more. Not many are aware that as per law it is banned to fire crackers with more than 125 decibel at four meter distance. Further there is a time limit beyond which one is not allowed to fire sound creating crackers. Insensitive and unlawful people do not bother about these rules. One can always expect ear deafening mid night blasts on the festival days. Their enjoyment seems to be more in breaking these rules and less in enjoying the festival.

I really get disquiet thinking how dreaded the new born babies would be in the birth centers or maternities on the day of sound and fireworks. Sometimes there are chances that this cacophony can even hurt a fetus in the womb. As a responsible citizen of this society we should be sensitive to these situations. If there is a hospital around or sick people in the neighborhood we should restrain from using high decibel crackers. The high level of noise generated by the crackers cause immense suffering not just human beings but also to birds and animals. Excessive noise can sometimes even cause hearing loss, high blood pressure or heart attack!

There is one sad angle to these crackers, few of us would know that the firecrackers which we use are mostly made by very young children in the factories. These child labours work under extreme unhygienic conditions and a continuous life threat. Since the substances being handled are extremely toxic many of these children get sick. The repercussions are absolutely fetal for these teenagers.

The fun and joy of watching the firecrackers is temporary. Permanent is the air pollution derived out of these crackers. Before bursting crackers for Diwali think twice and enlighten yourself towards the hazards that boisterous celebrations poses to our environment.  The toxic substances used in the firecrackers releases noxious gases which are harmful to the health of all living beings.  The heavy smoke is particularly harmful for eye, asthma & heart patients. Careless use of crackers in the vicinity of combustible and inflammatory things can cause serious fire accidents.  

It’s worth quoting an illustrious example which I observed last year at the time of holi festival. There was a death in the neighborhood and the families around in the colony decided not to have grand celebrations but limit to a modest event. Only children played with colours in the nearby garden while the senior members of the society gathered at the bereaved family’s house and exhibited their commitment to stand by them even in times of sorrow.

Finally a question to ponder over: what happens on the next day of firing millions of crackers? The streets get clattered with non degradable waste of cracker remains which further harms the environment. Recycling of this waste does not happen for ages. Diwali should be celebrated as a festival of light and not just sound. If at al there has to be a sound it should be the sound of success – a message conveying the victory of good over evil. There should be the theme of purity in the heart and not just cleanliness on the floor. Message here is to celebrate diwali and have as much fun as possible but with equal consideration for everyone and everything around. May the light of hope and happiness spread around this Diwali.


  • Plan to enjoy festival but do respect the well being rights of other people in the society.
  • Cleanliness at home is not enough, one should be clean at hear too.
  • Diwali is the festival of light, not the festival of sound.
  • In the event of fire, extinguish the flame by pouring water. Remember, every major fire is small when it starts.
  • Celebrate Diwali with the sound of success and the light of happiness.

Even a ten rupee bill can guard you September 24, 2011

Posted by aglakadam in Jara hut ke, Life and all.

I never preserved purchase bills till this incident happened with me. A few years back I was in Mumbai and moving from Bandra to Borivali in a taxi. Somewhere on the way, mid afternoon, our taxi was subjected to police checking. Probably there was some crime suspect likely to pass the way and as such each one commuting on that particular road was stopped at the check post. Everyone was asked to produce a proof of identity and whereabouts. It was a tough interrogation. I was asked about the reason why I was in Mumbai and from where I was coming and where I intended to go. Fortunately I had saved the prepaid taxi bill procured early morning and also the hotel bill where I had my meals. These two slips helped me to prove my innocence and we were allowed to go ahead on our way. Many of us who were not able to prove themselves were asked to stay back! (what happened next to them is not known to me, anyway).

I learned a very important lesson to preserve the bill till we reach home. Most of us when we go to a mall or railway station or a hospital, invariably we park the vehicle in the designated parking yard. I have seen people throwing away the parking bill, the moment they cross across the parking barrier. To all such people I suggest “pl do not consider the ten rupees parking bill as scrap, this can be of great help someday for you.” Yet another phenomenon I have come across is that the bill collector at the parking yard is keen to collect back the parking bill from us at the exit gate. The only intention is to reuse and misappropriate. Friends please beware of such miscreants, never give away your bill to potential misuser’s. This is like mineral water bottle, please crush after use and ensure no misuse in future.

Though bills are ephemeral still they provide a lot of education to us. Recently I had breakfast on a highway motel. After the breakfast I was given a memo kind of a shabby sheet with the bill amount scribbled on it.  When I asked the billing counter in-charge to give me a proper bill he immediately replied “Sir, what amount of bill do you need?. Surprised and unhappy at this comment, I quizzed him : “What do you mean by what amount?”  Whatever amount I am supposed to pay, please provide me a bill for the same amount. The person across the counter apologized, “Sir, rarely I come across people like you, mostly I am asked for a pukka (proper) bill only when someone has to misappropriate and make a claim somewhere!”

Friends I think people in general need to be more alert and better sensitive about bills. A friend shared with me that in a big town when he went to a restaurant to have meals with his family he learned a new lesson. While ordering the food he was cautious about the figures mentioned on the right hand side in front of the dishes in the menu card. However after the meals when the waiter served the bill there was at least 20% deviation in the amount charged vis-à-vis the price mentioned in the menu card! When queried about this to the hotel management they informed that the new menu card was under print and in some fine print somewhere on the menu card it was mentioned about the pro rata changes in the item rates. Not confirming your bills with the services / goods received can be injurious to your budget.

I sometimes see people extremely careless about their purchases. A laundry owner cry’s his woes, “Most of the affluent customers tend to miss out on their bills when they come to collect their belongings!” We have created a special indemnity clause for all such forgetful customers. After the burglary one gentleman was not able to get insurance benefit only because he did not have sufficient documentation required to support his claim. Raja, an employee with an insurance company, bought a computer from a local vendor but did not preserve the invoice. After a few months when he approached the service center for after sales service, he was refused by the service company because he could not produce the proof of purchase!

I share an anecdote here. “Two friends from Delhi once went to London for an excursion. They were moving around in a rented car on city roads. While at the air station they paid their bill for the fuel and got the ‘money paid slip’ in return. As they moved out of the fuel pump the bill was thrown out of the window by one of them. To their surprise they were immediately followed & intercepted by the traffic police and fined for loitering the streets! (Something we can never imagine in our part of the country!). What happens next was a sure setback for the London police. The car riders paid their fine to the police and in return the police exchanged a bill for the fine amount. As they say old habits die hard, they moved ahead and the penalty bill was tossed out of the window again!

Lessons for Excellence :

  • Big lessons are hidden in small incidents; we should have an eye to grab those.
  • Bills are important, not just from registering your expenditure in the profit and loss statements but also to make your life easy.
  • Never temper with your bills, preserve them for some time period at least.
  • Always ask for a bill even against a small purchase, you deserve it.
  • Always check your bills for authenticity.

Basant Panchami Festival February 8, 2011

Posted by aglakadam in aglakadam, Jara hut ke.
Tags: , , , , , ,

आज बसंत पंचमी है ,माता सरस्वती की पूजा और आराधना का पर्व | |बसंत पंचमी के पर्व को मनाने का एक कारण बसंत पंचमी के दिन सरस्वती जयंती का होना भी बताया जाता है। कहते हैं कि देवी सरस्वती बसंत पंचमी के दिन ब्रह्मा के मानस से अवतीर्ण हुई थीं। बसंत के फूल, चंद्रमा व हिम तुषार जैसा उनका रंग था।

बसंत पंचमी के दिन जगह-जगह माँ शारदा की पूजा-अर्चना की जाती है। माँ सरस्वती की कृपा से प्राप्त ज्ञान व कला के समावेश से मनुष्य जीवन में सुख व सौभाग्य प्राप्त होता है। माघ शुक्ल पंचमी को सबसे पहले श्रीकृष्ण ने देवी सरस्वती का पूजन किया था, तब से सरस्वती पूजन का प्रचलन बसंत पंचमी के दिन से मनाने की परंपरा चली आ रही है।

सरस्वती ने अपने चातुर्य से देवों को राक्षसराज कुंभकर्ण से कैसे बचाया, इसकी एक मनोरम कथा वाल्मिकी रामायण के उत्तरकांड में आती है। कहते हैं देवी वर प्राप्त करने के लिए कुंभकर्ण ने दस हजार वर्षों तक गोवर्ण में घोर तपस्या की। जब ब्रह्मा वर देने को तैयार हुए तो देवों ने कहा कि यह राक्षस पहले से ही है, वर पाने के बाद तो और भी उन्मत्त हो जाएगा तब ब्रह्मा ने सरस्वती का स्मरण किया।

सरस्वती राक्षस की जीभ पर सवार हुईं। सरस्वती के प्रभाव से कुंभकर्ण ने ब्रह्मा से कहा- ‘स्वप्न वर्षाव्यनेकानि। देव देव ममाप्सिनम।’ यानी मैं कई वर्षों तक सोता रहूँ, यही मेरी इच्छा है। इस तरह देवों को बचाने के लिए सरस्वती और भी पूज्य हो गईं। हमारी भारतचीय परंपरा में शिक्षा मुहूर्त के लिए इस दिन को श्रेष्ठतम माना गया है। इस दिन छोटे बच्चों को माँ सरस्वती की पूजा करके अक्षर ज्ञान कराया जाता है।

इस दिन सौंदर्य के अलावा ज्ञान और कला की देवी सरस्वती की पूजा का विधान अकारण नहीं है। इस समय प्रकृति के साथ मनुष्य भी शीत की ठिठुरन से मुक्त होता है। यह मुक्ति उसमें उत्साह का संचार करती है और वह साधना की ओर प्रवृत्त होता है। उसकी रचनात्मक शक्ति जागती है और वह सृजन में लग जाता है। बसंत पंचमी के दिन घर पर माता सरस्वती की के साथ ही पुस्तकों, कलम और कापियों की भी पूजा की जाती है। घर में रखे हुए धार्मिक ग्रंथों की पूजा भी बसंत पंचमी के दिन की जाती है। परम-पिता माता सरस्वती के साथ वेदों में निवास करते हैं अत: इस दिन वेदों की भी पूजा की जाती है। संगीत के विद्यार्थी घर में रखे हुए वाद्य यंत्रों की पूजा करते हैं। पूजा में माँ सरस्वती को पीला और धानी रंग का वस्त्र भेंट किया जाता है। इस दिन प्रसाद के रूप बुन्दियाँ, बेर, मूंग की दाल चढ़ाई जाती है। माता सरस्वती को ब्रह्मा की पुत्री भी माना गया है। जो छात्र संगीत एवं किसी कला का ज्ञान प्राप्त करना चाहते हैं उनके लिए माघ शुक्ल पंचमी यानी बसंत पंचमी बहुत ही शुभ मुहूर्त होता है।
परीक्षा के समय में हर छात्र चाहता है कि वह परीक्षा में उत्तीर्ण हो बल्कि उसकी दिली ख्वाहिश होती है कि वह अच्दे नंबरों से परीक्षा उत्तीर्ण करें । कई छात्रों की समस्या होती है कि कड़ी मेहनत के बावजूद उन्हें पाठ याद नहीं रह पाता, वे जवाब भूल जाते हैं । छात्रों को अच्छी सफलता के लिए खूब पढ़-लिखकर ज्ञान व विद्या की देवी सरस्वती की आराधना करनी चाहिए ।—-Varsha Varwandkar ,Career Psychologist ,www.aglakadam.com .Raipur

Corporate Social Dabawalas! November 10, 2010

Dabbawala’s are very famous, not just in Mumbai & India but across the world. When I say Dabbawala, I am sure you immediately start thinking of the dabbawala’s of Mumbai who have an impeccable record of delivering more than 200000 lunch (tiffin) boxes to the respective users everyday within a time frame of 3 hours from 11.30 am till 1.30 pm. Day on day for the last few decades the dabbawala’s have been demonstrating zero error in their services to an extent that they have been recognized as Six Sigma Performance! For those who are still not aware about all this I encourage you to just Google dabbawala and see the 29400 results!

As per Wikipedia the definition of dabbawala goes like this : A dabewala, also spelled as dabbawalla or dabbawallah, literally meaning person with a box, is a person in the Indian subcontinent, most commonly found in the cities of Mumbai and Karachi, who is employed in a unique service industry whose primary business is collecting the freshly cooked food in lunch boxes from the residences of the office workers (mostly in the suburbs), delivering it to their respective workplaces and returning back the empty boxes by using various modes of transport.

Friends, here in this writeup, I am not intending to poke my nose in the business of the dabbawala’s who every day crisscross Mumbai by about 60 kms in the locals trains. I however refer to those dabbawala’s who haven’t yet found space in the treasury of Google though they are rife almost in every city in India! Yes I have discovered a new breed of dabbawala’s in the corporate world. A breed with a variety so unique and hi profile that it may take Google years to get an insight into these dabbas. I take this opportunity to share my observations on these dabbawala’s in this write-up. This is a post deepawali discovery.

These real dabbawala’s are actually found only in the festive season of deepawali. These are people with sweet boxes trying to reach and please their respective business beneficiaries prior to the festival day. This is a typical syndrome in the PP (public private) mode of “life – business – governance cycle of operations” in the corporate world in almost every city in India.

The nature and truth behind these dabbas (boxes) and the corporate dabbawals has though evolved over time. The journey of the dabbas started as a good will gesture when friends & relatives used to exchange sweets on the auspicious festive occasion. This was a well intended exchange of wishes and had nothing quid-pro-co hidden inside. Over ages now the tradition of dabbas on deepawali has evolved to deliver different motives.

You can find various kinds of contents floating in these dabbas today. I met one such gentle man who is a typical babu and a proud receiver of dabbas every deepawali. He received more than 35 Dabbas this deepawali. I was enlightened with academic information that these days not all the dabbas have sweets inside, in fact most of the dabba’s do not have sweets inside. Many other kind of items are also found in these sweet boxes like latest mobile handsets, video camera’s of small sizes, biscuits & coins (of course made of gold), diamond rings (to please madam), different variety of gift /travel vouchers etc. Stretch your imagination and you will still fall short of thereality… these sweet boxes have hi fi dimension products inside… They say that majority of the dabba’s in deepawali are used to guise the exchange of hard cash! As per one guesstimate the exchange of ‘green’ can accumulate to the tune of a few thousand crore rupees on a pan India basis. All these transactions just over a couple of days!

Once upon a time the burnt cracker debris in front of your house was an indication of how well you celebrated the festival. Today it is the count, variety & size of the used dabba’s thrown in the dustbin indicates how “wealthy” festival time had been for you. Hopefully now the IT sleuths will have a special drive from the upcoming festival season to take a count of the empty dabbas in front of houses in the streets.

Festival time dabbas are increasingly becoming an integral part of our corporate culture today. If a business unit does not indulge in dabba’s the happiness quotient in times to come is likely to come down, the payment lead time is likely to increase, the discounts or giveaways will be forced to be hiked and worst the future business prospects are at stake! Considering all this it makes sense for a business unit to distribute dabbas in advance of the festival. This is very much important the dabbas have to come in advance, if it is delayed the boss might not be pleased enough!

It was a surprise for me to know that most of the corporate’s in India spends at least two weeks time in advance to fulfill this corporate special responsibility! At times even an especially dedicated taskforce is set in action to work out the logistics and allocation of dabbas. The CSR administration machinery works round the clock to work out the dabba inventory. Which dabba to be handed over to which babu /
beneficiary and by whom at which place is a critical decision.

The best part is one cannot apparently identify these sweet boxes as bribes yet those hand’s who deliver the business checks gets greased. The giver and receiver of the dabba’s as well are much relieved from the pseudo sense of sin involved in the exchange of bribe. After all deepawali symbolizes the victory of good over evil and hence one need to be careful & safe!

वैज्ञानिक अनुसंधान – हिन्दी के प्रयोग से भी दिमाग तेज़ होता है March 5, 2010

Posted by aglakadam in Jara hut ke.
Tags: ,

विज्ञान पत्रिका करेंट साइंस में एक अनुसंधान का विवरण प्रकाशित हुआ है, राष्ट्रीय मस्तिष्क अनुसंधान केन्द्र द्वारा किए गए इस अनुसंधान का निष्कर्ष यह है कि अंग्रेज़ी की तुलना में हिन्दी भाषा के प्रयोग से मस्तिष्क अधिक चुस्त दुरुस्त रहता है।

अनुसंधान से संबन्धित मस्तिष्क विशेषज्ञों का कहना है कि अंग्रेज़ी बोलते समय दिमाग का सिर्फ बायाँ हिस्सा सक्रिय रहता है, जबकि हिंदी बोलते समय मस्तिष्क का दायाँ और बायाँ, दोनों हिस्से सक्रिय हो जाते हैं जिससे दिमाग़ी स्वास्थ्य तरोताज़ा रहता है। राष्ट्रीय मस्तिष्क अनुसंधान केन्द्र की भविष्य में अन्य भारतीय भाषाओं के प्रभाव पर भी अध्ययन करने की योजना है।

अनुसंधान से जुड़ी डॉ. नंदिनी सिंह के अनुसार, मस्तिष्क पर अंग्रेज़ी और हिन्दी भाषा के प्रभाव का असर जानने के लिए छात्रों के एक समूह को लेकर अनुसंधान किया गया। अध्ययन के पहले चरण में छात्रों से अंग्रेज़ी में जोर-जोर से बोलने को कहा गया और फिर हिन्दी में बात करने को कहा गया। इस समूची प्रक्रिया में दिमाग़ की हरकतों पर एमआरआई के ज़रिए नज़र रखी गई। परीक्षण से पता चला कि अंग्रेज़ी बोलते समय छात्रों के दिमाग का सिर्फ बायाँ हिस्सा सक्रिय था, जबकि हिन्दी बोलते समय दिमाग के दोनों हिस्से (बायाँ और दायाँ) सक्रिय हो उठे।

अनुसंधान दल के मुताबिक, ऐसा इसलिए होता है क्योंकि अंग्रेज़ी एक लाइन में सीधी पढ़ी जाने वाली भाषा है, जबकि हिन्दी शब्दों के ऊपर-नीचे और बाएँ-दाएँ लगी मात्राओं के कारण दिमाग को इसे पढ़ने में अधिक कसरत करनी पड़ती है, जिससे इसका दायाँ हिस्सा भी सक्रिय हो उठता है। इस अनुसंधान के परिणामों पर जाने माने मनोचिकित्सक डॉ. समीर पारेख ने कहा कि ऐसा संभव है। उनका कहना है कि हिंदी की जिस तरह की वर्णमाला है, उससे मस्तिष्क को कई फायदे हैं।

अभी तक हम हिन्दी के समर्थन में आर्थिक, सामाजिक, सांस्कृतिक एवं भावनात्मक तर्क देते थे, मगर इस अनुसंधान के बाद अब यह वैज्ञानिक पक्ष भी जुड़ गया है। आशा है इस तथ्य को जान लेने के बाद लोग हिन्दी प्रयोग की ओर अवश्य प्रवृत्त होंगे। अतः हम सबका यह कर्तव्य है कि इस समाचार का अधिक से अधिक प्रचार करें। Source :राष्ट्रीय मस्तिष्क अनुसंधान केन्द्र
