GS executive speaks

If only everyone could have this kind of guts...

How did we get here? The firm changed the way it thought about leadership. Leadership used to be about ideas, setting an example and doing the right thing. Today, if you make enough money for the firm (and are not currently an ax murderer) you will be promoted into a position of influence.

I do wonder how we did get here too. Its quite a fair bit of distance from what the owners wanted... cherished and expected the firm to stand for. Any firm for that matter. Such a come down. Indicative of the current age or is this something more fundamental to the levels that we as a society have fallen?

Another one of the Fab Five bows out

A true sportsman and an even better gentleman.The first sports star in recent times,  as far as I can remember, who has appreciated the fans too. Rahul Dravid. He goes out as he came in. Untouched and untampered. Atleast not so much as the rest even after 16 years of being employed in a deeply political misfit organisation like the BCCI.

Take a bow!
