Is your scorecard balanced?

In management there happens to be a term or a concept called A balanced Scorecard also known the BSC. It is used to check whether the small scale operational activities of a company or an organization are in lieu with that of the vision and the final objectives of the company as a whole. This concept started way back in 1987.

Now, I was reading about this balanced scorecard, I thought how true is it to our real life way. Actually I felt we could look at 4 perspectives in life for each one of us. (Actually in the BSC they have used four perspectives or process to work out the card)

They are –YOU, WE, THEM AND THE REST-THE UNIVERSE.

You – it means just the you, your health, the knowledge you have gained, your learning, your style, your thoughts. All these small- small things do matter for making the you. The habits you adapt, you follow, the way you talk, the way you treat others, the way you behave all that leaves a mark within yourself – i.e. the final you. It in turn means your conscience.

We – It is you and your family , close kins , close friends, the relatives , siblings , the best buddies and all who help you , who live with you , for you and in some way or other have been through your ups and downs. So it does matter how you treat them, how you repay them, how you love them and how you place them in your heart- more than just placing in heart that needs to reflect in action too, the behavior ultimately reflects in them, their living. You need to work with your family and friends by sharing both joy and sorrow, supporting mentally, financially and physically at hard times and being there to watch all smiles at times of joy. Hence it s a team work – that is why I call it “WE”

Them – the them includes that place where you live, the society, the neighbours, people may be strangers who walk past you, the chaikada owner where you have your lonely morning tea, the rickshaw man whom you bargained with to be dropped at your place, the bus drivers, shopkeepers, the sabjiwala, and yes, leave them all even the small cute kid who had entertained you while on a train journey. The way you treat them , the way you care for them be it even for a min all does adds on to your scorecard of moulding a good and pure self .

It is rightly said, if you want to be loved, love –Si vis amavi, ama!

The Rest – that is the universe-I strongly believe every living being has God within, even the non living things when treated with respect does respond back to our thoughts... Else how can there be sensible air conditioners which work adjusting to human body ;) well I know that’s different but it is said even stones can go soft with love. So the rest of the world , the universe- that is the nature , the animals , birds , trees , plants and the entire world , the millions of people – both good and bad all reflect to us the way we treat them .

We shower love, we show concern, we work for the betterment surely we can make a difference to at least one person on earth, and then I am sure our score card will get balanced for good!!! Hope I do that soon at least make something better for somebody at least.

Humanism is the ONE RELIGION the ONE FAITH that binds every other man of every other and faith on earth. – for there it is bound only by love , care and affection. Aint it??

So how far are your score cards balanced??
See ya ! Have great days!

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 207: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Nadodikkattu "Ethra manoharamaya"

Dasan and Vijayan team is one of the most popular character pair in Malayalam movie fraternity. Every Malayalee will remember the dialogues from these movies. The pair of Lal-Sreenivasan as Dasan - Vijayan just brought (and still bring) smiles and simple joy among movie goers. Between Sathyan Anthikkad and Priyadarshan, there were three movies directed using the same team for the lead pair. With the script written by Sreenivasan himself, these movies have become immortal in the history of Malayalam cinema.
Among the set of 3 movies done using the combination, the first one was 'Nadodikkattu'. The picture that depicts the dialogue is from that movie. The second and third were 'Pattanapravesham' and 'Akkare Akkare Akkare'. Even though each movie was good this one is something very special. The dialogues are so popular that I don't think any of us would 'not' use them in everyday life. 
This one given below is by Vijayan (played by Sreenivasan) that s…

Day 210: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Diamond Necklace "Arunetta"

Time for a recent movie context. This is one of my new favorite actor- Anushree. This scene is from a movie called Diamond Necklace. It is not a comedy movie but this specific actor's character does bring in innocence and sweetness that will make you smile. Why do I like her? Well, she has a beautiful knack to enact serious, comedy, strong roles with ease. She came into movies through a reality show and trust me she is a real find. This is her first one and she plays a small role as the protagonist's innocent wife. The innocence of 'Rajashree' just won so many hearts. 
The dialogue reads "Ende Arunettane manasilkkan ini vere aara ullathu" means "Now, who else is there to understand my Arun":) For those who understand the context you can smile, the rest, please go and watch this one :)
