Feel like scribbling down something again. What are the flip sides of extreme professionalism. I think it often imposes goodness on people without having personal regard for one. Brief tenure are pre-requisite that is why. After all how long can a person play what he naturally is not.u can sit all together, walk in uniform, dine out formally, all the time.but life cannot be like that , in least for people of all age groups. That’s why disc, pubs bar, freak out points are a must for all so-called ‘professionals’. Once in a week they want to throw out, to dope, to coke, to shit, to scream, to sex…so on.

Clearly ‘professionalism’ then is not meant for those with strong ‘moralistic’ growing up. I wear the sacred red thread of Hindus, the Kaleva, on my wrist too…to remind of the moral values of religion and family. Then what kind of a professional am i?? Sometimes professionals are required to travel a lot. Surely that exposes them to various attractions of life, of food, taste, smell, beauty, and everything. My own present profession can be a best masterpiece. So how do I enjoy the riches of my professional life with this Kaleva on my wrist--- a vegetarian can't enjoy all sorts of food??? I am a cheat or I am an idiot. It just can’t be a third way. I guess so far I am part fity-fifty. All the IT professional go abroad, mostly to Europe and America, for on-site jobs. If they enjoy going out then they too must be the same. I know it for sure that all go to striptease, lap dance, rave parties, etc etc. both boys and girls alike. The kaleva then becomes a symbol of our hypocrisy also. For the medieval Hinduism has lots of do’s and don’t about these activities.

In my personal life, I have saved my free-thinking religion, the shamaism, by returning to the era of kamasutra and Vedas, the true sanatam way of life. U are here to live a life not to comply the socially created do's and don’t. Isn’t that what Swami Vivekanand wanted. The carnal restraints in me now remain only for the habit of them.

The summary, >> if thou desirest a true professionalism the truest pursuit of thy thoughts, then open up, enjoy life and people. Social taboos of medieval era don’t yield a professional.--the one who has sincerely set out to make a discovery

PSUs should become a trainer only

PSUs should become a trainer only


Public Sector Units adapted role in the ascendant Multi-nationals environment

Seen NDTV 24x7 or Aaj Tak and then Doordarshan ever?!?
Flown in the Indian or Air India?
Studied in or met an IITian or an IIM grad?

Worked in the SCI???

What’s common in all these activities?
They all set comparative standards for anything that is “government” or “sarkari”. They all perform but only one task..to teach and train people. Mr Pronoy Roy earlier appeared in the famous ‘ The world this week’, long time ago. Today he owns the NDTV. Aaj Tak flagged from DD National. Today it’s a different entity much larger than its original promulgators.
Pilots obtain training by flying the Indian and the Air India and then themselves fly off to other hi-paying companies. IITians and IIMs only come to study in these institutes and then go away abroad for work. And similarly people obtain training from the SCI and then navigate away to all other companies leaving the SCI virtually stranded!
And that, this is the commonest fate of most of the India government ventures.
The explanation behind this characteristic of government enterprises is that they
also-intend to achieve social welfare. Then how do they solve the crisis of human resource shortfall they themselves all are faced with. I would say that with the kind of business restrictions they have imposed on self, they should re-frame their policies to act like a Training-provider only. They must continually and in very large lots induct people so as to be able to handle they shortfall that has become their fate now.
In addition, they can also consider seeking the governmental intervention for levying taxes on all business groups from abroad recruiting Indian human resource. But that might show up as a deterrent to foreign recruiters for once; in which case, the PSUs may plan to invest greater in inducting and recruiting people by reduction in their profit accounts.
Retention or Loyalty Allowance!?!? Nah, these PSUs are less likely to measure up to the liberated, elite masses expectations. Employment reservation, as it is, has made them the abode of under-skilled , provincial people. In fact, the management should even start framing it’s rules also in such a way as to ensure it’s desired and correct interpretation and implementation by people who should assumed to be coming from rural set-up. Feudalism prevails large in such places. Having born and brought up in such atmosphere these people tend to be more oppressive, ‘practical’-compliant in their work method. (May be they have never dreamt of a perfect world and so never even set forth to reach it.)
