Kargil 2013: The guns have been quiet for more than a decade now; but there is one woman whose voice echoes through the Valley—Anuradha Prabhudesai. Rama Sreekant met 

“Thodi si mein wife hoon, thodi si mein nani hoon, lekin pehle Hindustani hoon,” says 57-year-old Anuradha Prabhudesai, an ex-banker, whose story dates back to August 2004 when she was holidaying in Ladakh with her husband and friends.

Anuradha was ambling along the roads of Drass, drinking in the friendliness of the locals and the soldiers in a war-ravaged town, when she first spotted an army caption that read, ‘I only regret that I have but one life to lay down for the country.’ Intrigued, she stopped an army Khansama to enquire what had happened there. He in turn, unassumingly asked, “aapko pata nahi, yahan toh haazerein laashein giri thi?” That was Anuradha’s moment of introspection.

She pondered about her comfortable life back in Mumbai, the brief news about Kargil (in 1999) and the pseudo-patriotism she wore in her heart. Moved by what she heard, Anuradha, along with her friend Vikram Joshi, took an oath at Vijay Stambh (War Memorial in Kargil) to bring to light the sacrifices made by the Kargil soldiers and to visit Kargil for the next five years.

Back from the trip, Anuradha wrote several letters to army officials seeking permission to visit them during Raksha Bandhan in 2005. After some initial resistance, Colonel Jha finally conceded. The mission was possible but the trail ahead tough.

Driving through rough roads from Manali to Sarchu and finally into Leh, all seemed worth it when, after tying rakhis and distributing homemade food, the soldiers expressed, “Aap jo pyaar dete ho rakhi ke zariye, woh hosla deta hai ladne ke liye.” The bond strengthened when she returned in 2006 with a group of 36 girls.

Mission Possible
Anuradha has visited Kargil 14 times in the last ten years, and her work has been cherished by the army. She has published more than 400 copies of Hindi poems authored by her and several booklets on the Kargil martyrs. “As Indians, we do not know the names of the Paramveer awardees of our country but we know the names of new-born kids of movie stars, film award winners, etc. Where are we heading as a nation?,” asks Anuradha, who is the only civilian and only woman with access to all the regiments in the

Kargil region.

Having lived up to her five-year oath, in 2009, when Anuradha expressed her uncertainty to continue the mission to Brigadier Pal, he simply ordered, “Continue the good work.”

Subsequently, Anuradha formed the Lakshya Foundation with an objective to instill a spirit of patriotism in the youth.

In her journey so far, she has travelled to Ladakh with 450 civilians giving them first-hand experience of army life, delivered 105 lectures across schools and arranged get-togethers of army wives and war widows. Fondly called ma’am, maasi and ma, by the soldiers, Anuradha’s role in their lives kept expanding. On 26th July 2011, she received a memento from Lt Gn Dastane for boosting the morale of the soldiers and bridging the gap between civilians and soldiers.

This memento, she says, is life’s best gift to her.

Giving Back
Anuradha’s work for the soldiers through the Lakshya foundation has grown multifold. Their first activity was ‘Diwali with Soldiers’—an initiative to distribute sweets to the families of the soldiers. “Aaj kal insaniyat ki kami hai. It’s all about me, my family, my job,” she says voicing her pain.

Sharing several anecdotes of the lives of soldiers, who stay put at an altitude of 18,000 ft in bone-chilling conditions for several weeks, Anuradha urges, “If you meet a soldier, give him respect and love. That’s all he needs.”

Taking a leaf from the lives of the soldiers, Anuradha has evolved as a human being—less temperamental, more disciplined, calm and collected, with a better sense of time.

She has reoriented her life to a different compass. Now, 26th July, Army Day, is incomplete without Anuradha and Lakshya Foundation. Leading two lives—one of a middle-class, hard-working wife and another of a woman who is a beacon of hope for our soldiers, in January 2012, Anuradha quit her job, “I wanted to work for my country,” she says.

Anuradha persists in her efforts to break the barriers between soldiers and civilians. She believes her mission will be accomplished when every Indian dedicates five years of his or her life to the country.  That would be a truly patriotic India.

Who Inspires You

After a very long time i found something really inspiring….Kudos to this article…A perfect blend and flow with thought provoking snippet …Thanks to countingducks for sharing such a beautiful post 🙂

Recently I saw a brief clip of Stephen Hawkins on television : he communicates from his largely impassive face through imperceptible movements in his cheek which somehow translate into computer speech. Literally  he is an old man trapped in a wheel chair who can hardly smile and certainly cannot move a limb but he is rather more than that I suspect we might agree.

His is a powerful and original mind, but most of all he is a man of curiosity and a wonder which has transported him from the everyday, to look at things beyond his circumstances, and not within them. He still seems alive with an awe and insight, and even youth. Yes I’m sure he’d like to run and skip and dance as badly as I do, but his interest in the world around him, leaves him little time for a comparison of circumstances. It is easy to admire such…

Fading smile is slowly returning
I got to start the churning

Finally I caught another one.!!!!! . Usually I look for something unique and different in an inspiring article i want to share on the blog . This article in the newspaper, although a big one managed to caught my eye . The way editing of the article has been done is almost flawless and the sharp wisdom of Robert Steven Kaplan left me ponder a while. So my pondering I have always shared with the bloggers!!!!!! Hope you guys too enjoy it!!!!!….Again I don’t fail to mention. Its mere sharing and the views are not written by me . 

What Success Really Feels Like 

People have to take responsibility for managing their careers says Harvards Robert Steven Kaplan you cant be a bystander in your own life . 
As a vice-chairman-of-the-Goldman-Sachs- Group turned-Harvard-Business-School-professor,Robert Steven Kaplan often has graduating students dropping into his office for career advice.A typical case might go like this: the student applied for a high paying job in the financial services sector,but now that the offer has actually come though,hes not sure its what he wants.He feels guilty about his ambivalence since its a job everyone else covets and rejecting it seems selfish and self-indulgent.Maybe he should put his misgivings aside and do what his family and friends expect 
Many of us motor through our young adult years trying to rack up one achievement after another being successful, says Kaplan,who has recently authored a book titled What Youre Really Meant to Do: a road map for reaching your unique potential.I advise students to beware of conventional wisdom and focus on the difficult task of understanding who they are and where their interests lie.You cant be a bystander in your own life.Managing your career is 100% your responsibility. 
The problem is not limited to b-school campuses.Kaplan narrates numerous cases of accomplished individuals who find they no longer enjoy what they are doing.They dont feel successful,though everyone around them thinks they are, says Kaplan.In mid-career executives it manifests itself in a feeling of confusion about where to turn and a concern that they have painted themselves into a corner.In older executives and professionals,its sometimes reflected in feelings of bitterness and regret. 
Whatever stage in their careers they may be at,Kaplan advises his readers to go through a process of heightening their self-awareness.The first step here is to assess ones strengths and weakness,not in terms of vague character traits,but in terms of skills.These might include skills in written communication,presentation,quanitative analysis,negoatiation,interpersonal skills and ability to confront others constructively.The importance of these skills varies according to the job and the level of responsibility,so this analysis is an ongoing process.
A skills mismatch is one of the common reasons people find themselves unhappy in a job to which they have been promoted.In some cases,it is the reason they are not promoted.Kaplan advises everyone to make a habit out of introspecting on their skills so they may pro-actively manage their capabilities.This doesnt mean trying to develop a skill you are inherently weak at.On the contrary,it might be best managed by delegating that part of the job to someone who is truly good at it.
Kaplan presents an example from the financial sector,where a junior executive had excellent market knowledge and client skills,but lacked the quanitative skills required for financial modeling,an important part of stock picking.She was set to quit her job when her seniors suggested she might be able to offset her weakness by teaming up with others on her client teams.She stayed on and moved up to more senior positions where her job required less modeling and ultimately emerged as one of the top professionals in her firm.This is a lesson I learned in my own career: the capabilities of my assembled team needed to fit with my own skills and deficiencies, says Kaplan.
Another step to self awareness is to identify your passions.What Youre Really Meant To Do suggests exercises like thinking back to a time when you were at your best or asking yourself questions like If I had enough money to do whatever I wanted,what career would I pursue.Some people may not want to get into this territory,fearing it might lead them to do something drastic,but Kaplan says getting in touch with your passions is critical to reaching your potential : You dont need to immediately decide what action to take or assess whether your dream is realistic.But when youre aware of what youre looking for,it becomes easier to recognise opportunities. 
Before you start looking for opportunities to reach your potential,Kaplan recommends you pause and go through one more step: understanding why you behave as you do.The best way to begin is to write down your life story,starting chronologically with where you were born,describing your family,your growing years,key events.Most people carry two different narratives of their lives with them a success narrative they tell others,where they are the heroes overcoming the odds and a failure narrative which they never share,which is full of angst and self-doubt.The exercise of writing down both narratives will take time but it will help you recognize patterns in your behaviour.The effort is hard work but it can pay big dividends, says Kaplan.Sometimes we know what we should do but cant bring ourselves to do it.We need to understand the internal impediments that are keeping us from taking certain actions.

Here,Kaplan narrates the case of a restaurant operator who he met at the owner-president course at Harvard.The man had started with a mid-priced Italian restaurant and had later expanded these to multiple locations.Now he was sick of the business and was considering selling.A longish conversation revealed that he came from a family of successful corporate executives and his dominant father had never approved of him becoming a chef.His passion was creating new dishes and serving customers but he had built a chain with a large number of employees because this measured up to his fathers idea of success.Now he was spending most of his time scouting locations and tying up finance for new projects,which he hated.As a result of this discussion,he realised he needed to drop the baggage he had been carrying to please others.He got back to what he enjoyed, says Kaplan.
Understanding what you really want is important,but in order to get it,you need to engage with the world outside.For one thing,it is essential to communicate your dreams to those who might help get you there,which,in an organisational set-up,is your boss.
Some people hesitate to communicate upward thinking it to be too political,but this mind-set can be self-defeating,says Kaplan: You may believe your boss or other senior people know you well enough to understand how your skills fit with your passions,but the truth is,they usually dont.They expect you to take responsibility for communicating to them what you want. 
For those whose dream job happens to be a leadership position,Kaplans advice is: be willing to act like a leader.This means speaking up for your convictions,judging your actions through the prism of whether it is good for the organisation,helping others without regard to whats in it for you,giving credit to others and doing the job with the next-job-up in mind.All of these are risky and many would find it hard to sustain this type of attitude over a career,but Kaplan believes those who demonstrate courage by questioning authority and speaking up stand a greater chance of advancing to greater roles in their organisations: You have to play the game with some degree of abandon.When the stakes get high,people become unduly hesitant or fearful.As a leader,you have to be relaxed and authentic and able to assert yourself. 
Lastly,and most importantly,you need to cultivate relationships try as you may,you cant do it alone.In the Facebook era,relationships may seem easy to develop,but being connected is not the same as having people you can draw on in times of need.In my experience,one of the biggest impediments to reaching your full potential is isolation.Its not lack of skills or bad luck that sets you back it is that you become isolated and loose perspective.You stop seeing yourself objectively and make poor decisions, says Kaplan.
Kaplan is the person a lot of people go to for help in a time of crisis and he,ironically,ends up advising them to communicate with individuals who are closer to their situation people they should have spoken to much before.Why didnt they reach out sooner There are lots of reasons they give, says Kaplan.They dont want to bother anyone.They didnt have a person they trusted or respected enough to confide in.They feared the person would no longer respect them.But the truth is,when you approach someone for help,most of them would try their best to be helpful.

Two Minutes To Notice

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the midst of crowd , I was waiting for a friend
Watching the hustle , passing by like a wind
Clouds were crying , umbrellas were dashing
Still I stood , As I had an errand

Then I noticed a hand with a stick
Behind him was one more without it
Through the struggle , lost in the hurry
My empty hands gave them a sigh of relief

We juggled through the path ,
they muttered to the world
As all they wanted was , to be heard

Two minutes to notice , all it takes
You blessed with whole , what is at stake ??

 

 

 

The Emotions Of Strength

 

The cry of born baby is always fascinating
The cry of the growing baby is happiness of first walk
The cry of child is a playground wound
The cry of the boy are his high demands
The cry of the youth is his teenage problem
The cry of a guy is his lost love
The cry of man is his fate
The cry of an aged is his weak bones
THE cry for the person is for a lost life

     All cries are experienced
But to save are very handy
Depressed cries are the worst
But it strengthens your emotions like a burst
Each step gives you a skilled strength
But bottle of emotions still filled in heart
To conquer the bottle is difficult
But to flush out has to be the final result
The Emotions Of Strength are tough to battle with
But an ultimate part of body to fiddle with

Doubts Cripple

MM900395769

 

 

 

 

What if are the two words
the mind always asks

You take a new step
Yet boggle there pops

A chill via body you
feel it in the heart
The voice of those
words become a
weak part.

Never let the ‘Doubts
Cripple’ is easy to pester
To start that battle is
difficult to muster.

Hypocrisy is a persona
in each one’s thee .
To hyperbolize in words
is the loose way of me .

Still with the write it
eases my impair
My goal to do the same,
for everyone in despair .

 

Hard Is The Fake

422546_10150678019087658_259297565_n

 

Rising in the morning
There starts a day
For you it has become
just another say

legs want to run far away
But your chair is clung in
utter dismay

Mood-swings are high
deep down you cry a
silent sigh

The face is same to all
lone eyes are scattered
with thoughts

Hard is the fake, you smile
As to hide the real , you
sense a pile .

To emote is not everyone’s
nature
But to gain the tough ought
be your future.

Still hard is the fake , now
you are unable to make
Write a poem , would be
done with a little ache .

 

 

In The Midst Of The Crowd

DSC00718

Lives are running
You are marooned in
a rote
Don’t know how to
get out of it’s mote

Always bemused
in the situation
I couldn’t understand
my phobic agitation

Mind occlusion
has worsened
it’s complications.

In the midst of crowd
I felt no one is hearing
But then realized I
need to be my cheering

Choosing a wrong path
is ever an alternative
Clear conscience is
your ultimate motive

The world is bad,
slogans are shout
Saving yourself
has now become a
doubt

You go with the twine
Still try best for your
pine.

The Endless Wait

DSC00007

The road is risky
You knew from the start
Still you chose to get a
new heart.

Bumps are bound to
arrive
With which it is difficult
to survive.

You knew the bumps
are growing bigger
But never knew the
wait could trigger.

The path seems to
be an endless wait
Yet you conquer
wisdom in freight.

The patient phase
is killing you inside
Still don’t let your
anger slide.

Each time I want
to end the poem
in black
But I cut myself
a slack.

As I Know one
day the road
shall welcome me
back.

The Two-Minute Solution to Coping With Disasters 


For someone who has spent most of his childhood in Uttarakhand and trekked through remote villages in the magnificent mountains of the Himalayas,I feel not just pain but also a sense of violation seeing the man-instigated natural disaster unfold in front of my eyes.

The region is on tethers,nature is wounded and thousands of army personnel are still battling the odds to ensure we dont lose innocent lives for decisions and actions on which we should have spent two minutes more.

Why is the question many are asking.Deforestation,human greed,exploitation of the poor,lack of education,mindless projects in the garb of development,lack of accountability for inaction any or all of these could be the reason(s) why we have lost so many lives.But whatever the alibi,it is sure to be forgotten soon.

Going by past trends,there will be pity,sympathy and blame-games followed by short-term memory loss,and soon,we will go ahead as if nothing had happened.

India is home to some of the oldest civilisations and we are proud of our heritage and history.But I wonder whether future generations will say this about us.Or will they see a generation utterly self-involved and selfish ?

Indians future will be secure only when Indians wake up to not just their rights but also their responsibilities.We need those extra two minutes more from each one of the billion Indians,every day,to think of Indians first.These two billion minutes we have each day could solve many problems and save many lives.These minutes hold the promise of changing mindsets where development will be viewed from the lens of inclusiveness and long-term sustainability.

When you throw plastic in the river,uproot a tree to plant it in your backyard,cut a tree to build a dream home in the hills,build roads from nowhere to nowhere,build dams to feed the unending hunger for urbanisation in the hills,do take those extra two minutes and think Indians first.When you travel and enjoy the beauty of Himalayas and stop to distribute toffees and not books to children,think those extra two minutes.When you see shops that sell tobacco and gutka coming up in every remote village but no medicine shop for miles,take those extra two minutes to think of our future.When you see empty school buildings with no teachers and children doing manual labour,remember,they are screaming for your two minutes.When you vote the next time,think hard for those extra two minutes.When you see deforestation and exploitation during your travels,ask for the road to the district officials and raise your voice in those two minutes.

I m not anti-development;the key is to ensure sustainable and environmentally sensitive development like the Amazon Region Protected Areas (Arpa) programme in Brazil and other state-led initiatives that have slowed down the Amazon deforestation and biodiversity hazards considerably with the involvement of local communities.As I write this piece,millions of Brazilians are on the street because they care.The Jasmine Revolution was caused because the common man cared.Indians are fighting against corruption as never before because we care.Now we need to care about the fine ecological balance given in trust to us by the previous generations.

As a young kid,these mountains and rivers were my family members,and the flora and fauna were part of my community.As the images of the vast devastation started flashing on TV screens,I thought of how we have let down these mountains,how we have abandoned the community and turned our backs to the responsibility.Now we will spend billions in rebuilding homes and in trying to reinstate the faith of people in our country,but what about nature,who will earn her respect and who will say we understand and care

I am a relentless optimist and believe that when we Indians decide to turn a corner,we are unstoppable.Thus,there is always hope if we look at this disaster as a reminder of the two minute responsibility we owe to our nature and biodiversity,cities and villages,humans and hills.Just two minutes every day in our own way.Think about it.My two minutes start now,and yours

Hoping The Expected

DSC00026

 

Deep down you know
it will not happen
But an inch of hope
becomes your weaken.

You wait for months
to hear the delayed
A voice still whispers
don’t bother the yield

You knew the day
was not yours
But still expect a
secure thought

The hold is done
expected is recurred

Yet you believed
unexpected to occur

Hoping the expected is
what must have accepted
But miracles do happen is
(expected)

You shed few more tears
which was done during delay

Now no more wait
no more tears

You get up again and
begun a new gear

Something which i felt like sharing in the blog

Dhruv Lakras courier firm delivers 25,000 packages every month by a deaf-only staff

You dont except pin drop silence at a courier office during peak business hours.But at Mirakle Couriers Churchgate headquarters,the only dominating sound is that of a whirring air-conditioner.Without exchanging a single word,its 49 staffers,all deaf,successfully deliver 25,000 packages a month within the city.Dhruv Lakra,its 32-year-old founder,who holds a degree in social entrepreneurship from SAID Business School,University of Oxford,stresses the difference between the deaf community and the hearing impaired.While the latter carry a hope of medical correction,the deaf have no choice but to resign to a life of silence.And yet,he doesnt approve of the term disabled for his colleagues.They are just differently abled, he says.They are great with operational work,good with directions and incredibly honest apt for the work they currently do.
After a job with financial management and advisory firm Merrill Lynch and a volunteering stint with Mumbai-based NGO DASRA,Lakra decided hed use the best lessons from both experiences to launch a socially-conscious business idea.Mirakle Couriers was born in 2009 with just two delivery boys.It now operates out of two branches (the other is at Bandra).
Remembering the incident that spun his life around,Lakra says,I was sitting in a BEST bus beside a boy who was looking restlessly out of the window.He was lost although the conductor was regularly announcing the next stop.I tried asking him what was wrong,but he didnt respond.Thats when it struck me that he was deaf.I helped him through handwritten notes,but I had come face-to-face with their everyday struggle.
Lakra decided hed come up with an entrepreneurship plan that would empower others like the boy.
And he sure has.Amarjeet Mistry,a confident middle-aged staffer communicates animatedly through sign language while Lakra interprets what he is saying: I was a carpenter and it was tough to make ends meet.How was I to fend for my family Things changed after landing this job.My daughter can speak English,you know!
While Mistry and his male colleagues manage delivery,the women,including Lata Upadhyay (name changed),operate the back office.Upadhyays parents were unwilling to let her work late hours.When Lakra learnt of this,he changed their schedule.We come in early and are back home before sunset, she says.I didnt want mere labourers.The idea is to get women with a difficult past to enjoy their work.They are my responsibility,so assigning them comfortable working hours keeps me at peace too, says Lakra,who learnt sign language as part of his field research.
In the absence of the spoken word,text messages have proved to be Mirakles lifeline.Its through SMSes that the staff effectively communicates and tracks deliveries.Their professional track record has helped bring in prestigious clients like Mahindra & Mahindra,Godrej & Boyce,the Aditya Birla Group and Under The Mango Tree.One staffer opens his eyes wide,and flays his arms to symbolise the fancy tall buildings they deliver packages to.
Its evident that Lakras idea is a hope for the community when he tells you he receives calls from eager parents looking for a suitable boy for their deaf daughters.It takes a while for me to explain that we are only Mirakle Couriers,not Mirakle matchmakers, Lakra smiles.

LEAN IN – SHERYL SANDBERG

lean-in_custom-575cb1cc7e2e0e704abfffbc2a0ce498dafad0f8-s6-c30

I am an avid newspaper reader. Long time back a very nice motivational article had come in the Economic Times with headlines-“Build Your Skills…Not Your Resume” , quoted by Sheryl Sandberg . In a niche it summed up the some leadership quotes and stuff. Till date whenever I feel low I go through that article .(I feel everyone should have something like this , it can be anything a book, a movie etc which will keep us optimistic). Anyway coming back to the point . After reading the book I realized that some of the points were from her book LEAN IN-SHERYL SANDBERG .

I was going through a low life (infact I am now a bit) and this book has turned out to be a savior . It has been a long time when I had read any book at one stretch . (Nowadays that’s more possible with sitcoms seasons) . It took me two nights with some interruptions to read the ebook. And the second I finished I ran to grab a copy from the crossword .(I got to have its hard copy )…something technology can never give (cuddle and doze off with).

I have never been a lover of non-fiction . I love to read management articles but books not much. Back then I have tried with Jack Welch ,Malcolm Gladwell etc but just couldn’t complete it …(Sorry no offence) The only book I remember finishing was The monk who sold his Ferrari. …Anyway again coming back to the point. I thought reading again would help me in writing the review in better way. But in each read ended up highlighting different quotes . …(So got more confused). I have never written a book review and this book left me pondering from where should I start if I want to . Because its difficult to leave anything . …(You ought to read the book). Still Here I start.

                          It’s a sort of women centric book with women issues . At times quite humorous. It highlights why women progress gets stalled in the corporate world and why men still run the world . Its not exactly her autobiography but a blend of her past work personal experiences, self-analysis of the public speeches given by her and other short accounts. Many statistical data’s are presented. They are more with concerned to US country . But India stats were frequently mentioned. (Hello There INDIANS did you know….

In India 11% seats in parliament are held by women.

A Meager 4% of the fortune 500 CEO’s are women .

Indian women hold 5% of director ships among the 100 companies listed on the BSE. 11% of the top 240 Indian companies had female CEO’s

In India about 13% of children live with one parent , usually a mother

In India , women do more work than ten times as much child care and nearly thirty times as much housework as men.

Each title of the book is a very apt and reasons out beautifully. She has tried to explain how work-life balance can be achieved without making any career sacrifices(especially women) and how equal parenting can lead to successful life. The book each man and woman should read it …(Highly recommended by me). The wisdom attained is insurmountable. Many critics have retorted and tagged it feminist , gender-issue based book ….I am like common dude have you read the book properly?? – when revealed the definition of feminism as

A feminism is someone who believes in social ,political and economic equality of the sexes” the stats increased from 24% to 65% .

Don’t we all are then? . There are many other quotes which gives you a wise laugh

LIKE – “Legendary investor Warren Buffet has stated generously that one of the reasons for his great success was that he was competing with only half of the population” OR another one

Where everyone of us are fraud and Fake it till you feel it strategy helps at times.

OR

The one where a women revealed something like this – “I shouldn’t confess it publicly but she puts her children to sleep in their school clothes to save 15 minutes of precious minutes in the morning.”

OR

Its heartbreaking to think one woman holding another back. There is special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.

The best one – Heidi/Howard case study of HBS …(People who don’t know this please read it on the net).

The (OR’s) continue with many other wise and inspirational quotes. …May be it will turn out as one of my new blog post. …(So read the book people) . Like I said before I have never written a book review and probably at the end I suck at it.   My intention behind it was to make this book known to as many people as I can . But I realized something – my tvhookedfigures have turned out to be in major number woman . ….I can’t help it .

I am waiting for Benedict alias Sherlock to return.
