Slumdogs can take Sensex to 40,000

I am surprised to see hoardings in Mumbai and debate on television channel to attack Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire for peddling Indian poverty to west.

These great movies actually send out a strong message to the world that “India is all set to become Superpower”.

At one end, you have country "India" with approx 230 Millions people living below poverty line(as per year 2005). As per the World Bank definition of Poverty line, 85.7% of Indian population lives on less than $2.50 (PPP) a day. Also we have inequality in wealth distribution which is explained well by Gini Coefficent.

And on the other hand, you have same country which has a ability to produce engineering marvel as well as the most cost-efficient cars “Tata Nano” all by itself. It is the same country that provides engineering support to multinationals, writes software and hardware in the IT space that helps global giants and can even launch a Moon Mission by itself.

Just imagine, what wonders, this country can do if we have right leadership.India awaits a Leader which can provide proper employment opportunities to millions. It will help slumdogs to earn a reasonable life style with essentials like Roti , Kapada aur Makan ( food ,clothing and house ).

I am astonished by the fact that foreigner has depicted India‘s Slum story so correct. Slum life in the movie “slumdog millionaire” is absolutely correct

Its a key economic indicator for super rich communities/business people across the world. India is the Only country to invest as its moving up the value chain. Days are not far when you will see Sensex crossing the 40,000 marks .

"Slumdog Millionare" confirms growth story of Incredible India!

Negative Juice Theory

If you have come across the professional race of equals in the corporate world and couldn’t get the reason why one lost to another then the “Negative Juice Theory” will help you give a deep insight on it. Often I have found people, subscribing to this theory, are those in a weak position rather than those who are in the position of strength. People at strength are major contributors to negative juices in others and my effort is make people believe in the Negative Juice Theory.

Every transaction leads to juices in others. Motivation leads to positive juices and anything unreasonable generates negative juices in others.

Negative juice credits in corporate world are mainly due to Corruption, Misrepresentation of facts to seniors/peers/juniors, issuing unreasonable Transfer orders to remote locations, Sexual discrimination, suppression the truth, Incorrect appraisals, delays in leave approvals, delays in claim settlements, providing unjust rationales while handing over the pink slip so on …

All those who are victim of sadistic pleasures taken by the seniors have a reason to cheer. Remember negative juices that they generate in you by being unreasonable are all getting credited to their account.

Believe me, the impact of the Negative Juice is HUGE. Some of common symptoms in those who score high on negative juices credits are: Losing from their position of strength or divorce or Disturbed married life or No children’s or Loss of loved once or Getting diseased or meeting with accident or theft or property disputes so on.

Remember every rise has a fall and every fall has a rise. Strength to remain at the peak purely depend on you scoring low on negative juice credits which are unlike carbon credits.

I am scared of this negative juice and make sure that my team finds me reasonable in decision-making. Hoping that my negative juice account always remains in debit balance.

I should have written this blog few years back. May be this excerpts/passge would have helped B Ramalinga Raju of Satyam avoid the situation he is in today.
Hope this will save many others CEO’s going forward.

So,don’t wait any more, get your seniors read this blog as this will help them and also will do good to you.

Happy new year 2009.
