Is it tough to be responsible ? 

I wonder how some people always get away with all the horrible stuff they do ? Well fate or luck or whatever you name it , 'that' certainly plays a great role in making them win /shine no matter how much ever they stink ! 

When does man become responsible? Is this quality applicable only for things that are 'mine'.

The moment we are in the world , we are responsible to the world , the nature, the species around and yes society. The organisation you work for is also something you need to act responsibly . It never may be your organisation but once you get to some power be it an executive or a CEO you become responsible. 

The way you carry the brand or the organization does add or negate the level of respect and name the brand or corporate conveys to the world. 

The work i do , the money i spend ( as a marketer) i have to be concerned and most important responsible. I cannot flaunt and behave the way i am or think just because i happen to be the CEO. 

Even our own life cannot be taken ( suicide) as i dont own my life. it is with some purpose God has send me down on earth. I am responsible if i dont find and complete the purpose for what i am here for ....

Well this post is because i had  experienced that not all corporates are gifted with great leaders. 

Every leader is responsible for the way the organisation functions. It is only up to the individual to make or break a rich and developing organisation. 

As a young pony in this stable , i still have a long way to go before i make a mark for myself in this big mad world but thanks that destiny has provided me with some mentors guide me and now  'being responsible' is just as easy as ' i live'..... 

I just hope even the ones who are not so , teach me only 'HOW NOT TO LIVE' !!! 

OMG.... i am mad ... ie y so much prattling pls excuse .. 

anyways take care good nite and happy dreams !

yours truly ...

Dear Meenu

It is all about "SEE Oh! oh! " well the market or the bazaar like the magician's hats brings challenges every day. Today's CEO must be a role model, with lot of guts and inner voice to take decisions which is good for the company.
One has to be transparent and a six sigma person and should not be away from the entire process of marketing.
He/She has to keep the eyes and ears open and change strategies like T20 !!!

It is all about
responsibility
agility
being assertive and must know how to Pro-act...



Good article!
all the best for the future CEO!!!

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 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 211: Malayalam Movie Dialogue: Meleparambile Aanveedu "Velakkariya irundhalum"

How can I not have the great (read great great) Jagathy Sreekumar's at least one dialogue when I talk about Malayalam movie dialogues? He is an icon that no one can ever replace. Yes, the other actor who was so wonderful was Nagesh. But I think Jagathy can beat all of them with ease. He can outshine every other actor on screen. Jagathy's unique touch to every role and his antics (only he can- remember, Thalavattam?) can be ONLY played by him. He must have acted in over 1000 movies and I hope he comes back to movies very soon (He met with an accident a couple of years ago and he hasn't recovered yet). Malayalam industry that was blessed with some amazing character artists. 
This is from the movie "Meleparambile Aanveedu" and I think the role of Jagathy as the brother of the hero (Jayaram) is just brilliant and a laugh riot. This is a scene where he is trying to learn tamil to woo the 'servant maid' (Shobana). The dialogue reads as " Velakkariya irund…
