Shaivam - A way of life.

Ganapathy - Vision and Initiative Vision is something that is not present today but picturize it so that you will achieve that picture one day. For example, Right now there is a lot of poverty in the country, you will have a vision that one day there is no poverty that everyone get sufficient food, water and shelter. Vision is a picture that is not real during the present time but will be in the mind for the future and you take initiative towards that. Ganapathy is a representation of Vision and Initiative, therefore we have a human body with elephant head to symbolize something that is not real for now but you still get picture of it. Ganapathy is also the symbol of initiative and as you take initiative you will be removed from all obstacles automatically. Lord Subramaniam - Local importance and destroying internal evil. Local importance is anything that gives importance to self and any associations with self. It could your locality, your family, or any associations. Lord Subramanian

  Do you know Nataraja idol in Chidambaram praharam has one significance? It was built by the pallava kingdom, and the significance is that it looks like a man for men, woman for women. Original name of Nataraja was called Viswesa - Vis (man) + Wes (Woman) + a (authority) = The authority of man and woman. The symbol has nothing got to do with dance, the symbol represents that  lokame shiva mayam .

Organization Culture

Image
It is important for an organization to be high performing on a long run and there are many reasons for organizations to have difficulty in dealing with employees, their relationships, their preferences and also help them to be highly productive. How to make them more engaging and productive? Is it good salary? Is it career growth? Is it motivation or encouragement? (Well, that's impossible on person-to-person basis) So, what is missing? Even when we as a management address each of these, is there one pill that solves all the problems? Organization Culture The best way we can address employees' needs and help them to be highly productive is to align them with the Org Culture. To achieve that we need to DEFINE the culture. An "inclusive, productive and growth"' culture can look to answer the following points: Productivity: 1. Employees' objectives - Whether he/she is clear of his/her objectives inline with the organization's business goals. 2. Visibility on

Shaivam - A brief introduction

Image
  What is Shaivam? Shaivam is a rationale of protecting the good by destroying the evil. Is there is anything called 'Protecting the good' when you can destroy the evil? Well no! There is nothing like 'Protecting the good' when you can destroy the evil and that is the only way you can achieve 'Protection' . The evil can be in any form be it people, individuals, intentions, perspectives, mindset, situations etc. Not only we destroy the existing evil, also we anticipate and remove them as well. Why the present world is in disarray? Because there are lot of people who believe in protection by allowing the evil to grow, encouraging them for the sake of protection of good. Can we be better off if the evil is never encouraged? Yes, humans still have lot of challenges in positive direction towards growth and that should be our only focus in life. Some people profess 'Protect the good' by creating evil and destroying them, thereby leading people to be focused on

It is very difficult to find a person to have a road map  of his own life, further it is very uncommon for one to have a purpose in life, on top of all these it is extraordinary for a person to have a vision for the society. Bharathi was a person who was considered eccentric during his time, everyone assumed him to be crazy, everyone tagged him to be outrageous, still he had only one thing in mind, his vision.  He was not only influencing people through his poems but also his works were elegant with unconventional language. He was reason behind the new age style in Tamil Language that used to be classical and required a niche eye to understand them. He was the first one to voice his concern for women, mainly because he had the flair for women which is very uncommon during his time.  He talked about the united and independent economy of India, he talked about women’s welfare, he talked about fairness and his writings clearly exhibit his passion to be fearless, his passion to be cari

A cultural problem

The idea of separate life/location for youngsters, especially after marriage, from parents is actually justified. Unlike old days, now youngsters are in a need to perform independently in order to be successful in their career. They need a freedom of mind, with due apologies presence of parents in the same house actually interferes with the freedom of mind for the young generation. This is mainly because of generation difference and youngsters are forced to be conscious about their parents. Parents are generally outdated with their expectations/behavior and our adjustments to them may not be relevant to our times. This is particularly true if one decides to spend his/her entire lifetime with parents. Although it is our responsibility to spend time with them but in reality spending time with them cannot be considered quality time with respect to the youngsters' prospects or growth in present times. Youngsters will always strive to stick to the culture as much as possible and be resp

Paradox

For system to be successful, people should focus only on their own passion and satisfaction. Isn't it a selfish life without much thought and care about others? Well it's a paradox. If someone focus only on his self-satisfaction, humans by nature, will be helping others to satisfy oneself. Is it always the case? Yes it is always the case! A simple rule. Everyone should take care of oneself for his betterment alone. If everyone apply this rule society will be safe. Then why is that everyone is so selfish? because the present system is not suitable to satisfy oneself, everyone is struggling for their own survival, no one has time for his own desire/passion/satisfaction. Do you mean no one has no time to exercise his own desire? Yes. All the brouhaha about society happening all over the society is just an illusion and a false impression, it is a cry of everyone as an outcome of unfulfilled life. Also whoever is very selfish in life is not exactly selfish, it is the because of

Importance of parenting

Image
It is important to know about parenting, apply it consciously and nurture your kid who will be a leader in the future. Traditional upbringing is a dangerous proposition as the child maybe lost without much involvement in the present day race. Every parent will have expectation for his/her child to be a winner among his/her peers and leadership skill should be honed right from infancy to adulthood in order to be successful in this super fast changing world. Encourage the kids to make their own decisions, allow them to act themselves as much as possible. Minimize your interference on them. They may fail in their endeavors, maybe repeatedly, but when every time they fail motivate them to do better next time. Minimize advising rather encourage by showing them ways to improve or have a better life. Instead of saying "You should not do this" we can say "You can do that which is better". Many a times he/she may end up taking wro

Chase of the moment.

With her legs tied, she tried to get near the water jar, lifted it slowly so that no one could hear her and as she was drinking there was a sudden thudding sound of the doors opening. A fully armored man with a large sword over his hips approached her, struggling to get past her fierce look, he untied her legs, dragged her to main hall. "Did she say anything?" asked the rebel chieftain. "No! not a word" replied the armored man. Angrily the chieftain approached her face "You will pay for your insolence, you dirty little pigs! You all will die in my hands, I will crush them to a piece of dust", she waited silently to have him finish his words, then quickly kicked him on his groins and as crouched back in pain, she shouted "Only in your dreams, you little bunch of cowards!". "Hang her tomorrow, I need to see that for myself" chieftain shouted still holding his hands on himself with pain. That night was silent, with distant howls she could
