What nations must do. What organisations must too.

Every political party in India is at pains to assure us their choice of presidential nominee is so they can restore glory days. Of course, everyone else knows that's pure bunkum. Political parties don't give a damn what happens to everyone else or even the country, they're just busy settling scores, and scoring political points.

Take a moment and take this reality in.

In the guise of furthering the nations' glory, all political parties do is further their own fortunes, individually, and as a collective. Note, such 'selfish' games play out in organisations too. In the guise of furthering the organisation's growth, there are employees who shamelessly pilot their own fortunes.


By nature, humans are wired to seek their own good over others. When people come together to work as a collective the unsaid understanding they share is that the collective can achieve far more than what they could have, for their own selves. 

Ditto for a nation too.

Its important nations rid of themselves of acts that work against the very reason by which nations exist. Organisations too must do the same. Its the only way nations can march ahead assuring its citizens the best there is. Its the only way organisations can tap into value in the collective and translate that into superior value for their consumers.

Sir,

This is an article that i was reading through and thought might interest you. The whole thing t made me think of the overreaction by the people of our nation towards the comments given by Barack Obama. I felt as though the writer got the feeling of the people bang on.
