Wow !

So many Wows in this Video !

Firstly, the mention of Swami Vivekananda (by that Singh Ji), in whose name, I roam around every day, with Pride, at IIT Madras.

I think, he was paraphrasing this quote. One of my Favourites.

"So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every man a traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them. I call those men-- who strut about in their finery, having got all their money by grinding the poor---wretches, so long as they do not do anything for those two hundred millions who are now no better than hungry savages." - Swami Vivekananda.

 Then, Secondly, The idea of enquiring, that What is the thing, which keeps these officers ticking.  (I am very happy that Spirituality is one of those ticking forces.)

Here are some of the answers, which they gave, for the above Question .. 

  1. You have to find opportunities among adversities.
  2. Don't curse the darkness. Take up a Candle and dispel the darkness. (Reminds me of one of my friends, who spoke that her motivation to crack IAS is to dispel the ignorance of Masses in India, and give them, the illumination of Knowledge.)
  3. You have to be a performer, not a fault finder. 
  4. Lofty Challenges, bring out the best within us. 
  5. When Obstacles come in, we strengthen our muscles. 
  6. *Must be committed to path of excellence. 
  7. Let everyone see the Vision, with which, you approach the things....
    Once you yourself stop taking the credit, and give up the I , and convert the I into We, and take up large number of people with you, then your challenges that you face are reduced. Then, the entire team gets the credit.
Coming to the Second Video :
