NARAYAN MURTHY

It has been a long time since I wrote anything and I am thankful to 3 of my friends who even asked me.whats up:)..actually i was out on my annual trip to my hometown and then my son and Son and DIL came with our little moppet...
I have so much to share, but dont know from where to start...I shall start with what I heard on TV yesterday.it was a conversation with Narayna Murthy about going for a better samaaj( I wrote it in Hindi, because word society doesnt give me the same feeling as samaaj:)..Whatever he said were the golden words to be remembered by everyone....

First we must start with making a custom of respecting 10 people in our mohalla every year..people who are honest and ethical..make respectable more respectable..show it that it matters to everyone.

If we get a GDP growth of 6% with the values and transparency, its far more better than 9% growth gained thru corruption or without values.

Till every child in our country gets the basics..food, clothes, shelter, education and health care..all wealthy people must live simply.....vulgar display of wealth is violence.

One may fare better in the short term, but in the long term only ethics and honesty gives the good returns and long lasting happiness.

I have always admired him, but now I am in real awe...He is a real icon.

I agree with all the points. They make a lot of sense.

My journey said...

Yes he is the real icon and hero for all the young entrepreneurs who aspire to achieve big some day. He always speaks golden words. His simplicity and honest speaks volumes about him. Even after achieving this much he is still so down to earth. Respect!!

I love this line - "Till every child in our country gets the basics..food, clothes, shelter, education and health care..all wealthy people must live simply.....vulgar display of wealth is violence". Imagine society with simple weddings - rather than spending all that money for a 2-3 day social circus it can actually be spent on some charity.....

true Golden words..must abide ..
its very sad to see kid dying of hunger and on other side ..plate full of food goin to a garbage,,,
people jus think before you waste anything ,,,,think of those unprivileged people and try to be generous with show-offs!

harman singh said...

*try to be generous without Showoffs
that was a big mistake I made while writing..which changes the meaning altogether.

chitra said...

I go with you Renu. Extravagant spending is a crime.
Hope you are enjoying with your son's family.I was away and was not regular here.
