"On inherent knowledge and development paradox of man ***

Do you know something about the inherent paradox of human knowledge and development?

Well, I will tell you an example. We know what is happening millions of light years deep into the space. But our know-how on what is happening a few miles below the ground where we all stand is very limited!

And we explore planets to flee in case the Earth becomes uninhabitable. But we find it very difficult to take simple steps to ensure the Earth remains healthy."

"On self realization***

Don't discard your innate (basic) character without trying to understand its potential. World may ask you to mimic the popular. If you follow it blindly, you may be vandalizing a priceless gift."

"Few years back I wrote a Scientific Fiction titled Imanofutu (imaginary nation of the future). Wrote three short volumes and the fourth remains held up in Writers Block for many years 😀. It is not the matter of discussion here. In one of the chapters I imagined a situation in which all the existing aviation technologies fail because of the drastic changes in the environment - from continuous whirl winds to thunderstorms and more. Days on which the wind below your wings is no more a source of lift! Imanofutu is forced to invent everything anew - a completely different aviation technology.

Intuition is the most favourite choice of the #nature to communicate. Said that, we may want to share such intuitions, dreams and most importantly the impulses to 'step out side the box' of existing theories and think about the impossibiles today."

"Loose ends in the Global Economy

For the 2022 fiscal year, low-income economies are defined as those with a GNI per capita, calculated using the World Bank Atlas method, of $1,045 or less in 2020; lower middle-income economies are those with a GNI per capita between$1,046 and $4,095; upper middle-income economies are those with a GNI per capita between$4,096 and $12,695; high-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of$12,696 or more.

GNI per capita (formerly GNP per capita) is the gross national income, converted to U.S. dollars using the World Bank Atlas method, divided by the midyear population.

The Atlas conversion factor for any year is the average of a country’s exchange rate for that year and its exchange rates for the two preceding years, adjusted for the difference between the rate of inflation in the country and international inflation; the objective of the adjustment is to reduce any changes to the exchange rate caused by inflation.

Above theoretic framework produced the list available at the URL https://datahelpdesk.worldbank.org/knowledgebase/articles/906519-world-bank-country-and-lending-groups

While looking through the list I felt there are some loose ends. What are they? The first nomination for a loose end case came to my mind after a few seconds’ humming of neurons: "Can this gauge self-dependency or self-sufficiency of a country? No."

"Power of demand ***

In the context of global economy, only regulators have geographic boundaries. The demand works beyond all boundaries just like the sunlight reaches the Earth and it creates everything else including its fulfilment and the regulators. And the demand can be regulated at its source only when you can place moderator bars in the Sun to regulate its nuclear activities 🙂

Realization of this fact would be the most critical step towards prosperity as well as preventing reverse growth."

"Tonic Behaviors***

Some behaviors can effectively act as a tonic for mind and body - that is general health. One of it is keeping childhood hobbies in a controlled manner and without causing difficulties to others. For instance, dance like a child for two three minutes every day. We all do it during the ecstasy of jubilation. It makes your mind and body flexible immediately. But the problem is when others notice you are doing it regularly, they may tempt to think you are slightly lunatic 🙂 🙂 My tip would be to do it while you dress up for work - a time when attention of others on you will be minimal. And you will be able to start off work with a #positive spirit."

When you are in a difficult situation, most often, it will be the advices that you get from all corners excercise overwhelming pressure on you than the situation you are in - all of us know it well. Solution from my personal experience is : be receptive to all advices without any prejudices. Then demand to grant some personal time. Instruct your brain to process all what heard and clear the buffer of your mind. Keep it clean. Close your eyes. Meditate for some time. When you open your eyes, you will also receive some instructions from your brain. Follow it."

"Basic lessons of successful conflict management are, in fact, "very commonly common knowledge". Everyone out there does it in their daily lives. If you list it down, it will look like:

1. Always have a realistic assessment of your own ability to deal with the conflict(s) you face. Because, the most respected situation is you are in control of the situation by your own. To attain it, you must do this homework.

2. Based on the above, always strive to ensure no conflict is escalated beyond your own capabilities and capacities.

3. Whenever you find it may go beyond the above, have earnest efforts to de-escalate it to a level you can comfortably manage - exactly like what physicians do in the case of the body readings like temperature, pressure, sugar etc.

4. To do the above, you should list out reasons behind all conflicts and find out items that can be dealt with to de-escalate the conflict without causing much or greater loss to you. Finding a combination - that is - building an effective strategy.

5. When people examine above carefully, in majority of occasions, to their surprise, they find many reasons have been existing without much merits - ones that are assigned with highly inflated overdramatised weights as Dr. Rosling wrote in his book "Factfulness" while discussing about activists."

"Interdisciplinary Queries ***

Interdisciplinary queries are always a subject of debate in all human groups, societies, institutions and organisations. Whenever we hear a thought or query from a person belongs to a different group, whom we consider a layman to our relm of knowledge/activities/specialisation/mandates etc, there is an inherent temptation in most of us to prove the other person is wrong. That person has no 'locus standi'!

But I won't argue it is totally absurd. Because, we are actually helpless in this matter, if not get ourselves trained otherwise. Because we are built like that. Though man became vocal about information societies only in this 21st cy, nature created us really as beings thrive on information. We become the fittest to survive based on the power of information basically. Therefore, when someone else shoot a thought to our domain, our internal mechanisms identify it is a threat to our position as or journey to become the fittest. Then an organic, natural defense mechanism is triggered commonly in the form of efforts to prove the other person - the intruder - is wrong. It is not a guilt and nobody is guilty.

But the problem is, it is not the end of the universal algorithm written to acquire information supremacy. Above said defense mechanism is just an infancy stage mechanism. How we can progress from there? Will be sharing my thoughts on this in the next post.

Have a great weekend!"

"EV manufactures may provide an optional petrol genset power booster that supports to cover a minimum of 50 to 100 kms till charging stations are spread all over. It may not require a drastic design/technology change. Transitions always require an intermediate phase. Here a hybrid vehicle. It will help people to find a charging station, in the event of a complete discharge away from the nearest charging station. Also provide a universal app for easy mapping of charging stations and to constantly search route to the nearest charging stations ready to be displayed on the info screen onboard.

It will ensure 100% confidence in prospective buyers.

Think aloud, friends. Have a great creative day!"

"I thought this is the first time in the recent history, man prepares to co-exist with a (Covid) virus. But an article in the Scientific American says Man is made up of virus too! It says that "Biologists estimate that 380 trillion viruses are living on and inside your body right now—10 times the number of bacteria" !!! Many of them may be helping us to enjoy a healthy life!!!

"Continuation of last post *** It is time to set up an agency in the form of UNFCCC for safeguarding the MicroWorld environment (of microbes ) as the challenges from the micro-world is getting equally or more challenging as/than the #ClimateChange issues. Further, climate change exercises tremendous influence on it as well."

Friday, February 4, 2022

"The life in the macro world as we can see is greatly facilitated and regulated by the micro world of microbes, which consists of bacteria, virus and all such micro organisms and half-organisms we do not see with naked eyes. Said that, the issues there are more or equally sensitive as climate change. Perhaps, reasons also draw analogies between these two modern world challenges."

"It is time to give up under-developed, developing and developed grouping of countries. Instead, a four level grouping of countries was devised for the first time by Swedish physician, professor of international health at Karolinska Institute, public speaker and statistician Hans Rosling. Later it was accepted by World Bank also. Dr. Rosling provides convincing reasons for it, supported by authentic data, in his book "Factfullness".

While defining four levels, Dr. Rosling also warned that those are not separate/ distinct groups. They are overlapping. Each level has Individuals who meet the general parameters of all groups. It also means countries added to the lower levels might have attained the progress of higher levels in some or many areas. Also it is specifically noteworthy that all the countries in levels 2 to 4 (the highest) started from level 1 actually. Movement also two ways - there are upward and downward movements.

This change helps us to maintain a realistic view of the world. It also saves us from overdramatized misconceptions stealing away our opportunities.

I also decided to stop using the under developed, developing and developed classification.

Let us discuss in detail."

"Possibility, a lot of things that man considers as big issues and hence burn major chunk of resources on it currently world-wide would become insignificant by 2040.

Then the world can be led by only those civilizations that identify such overdramatised issues and stop getting entangled to it right now, and start focusing on working for the future.

Main reason for it will be the cumulative effect of climate change - another set of bigger issues, that are actually growing now either unnoticed or under-noticed. There are other reasons to supplement/ complement it as well.

This is not a new thing. This has been happening through out the history of man because of the changes in the living environment consequent on knowledge acquisition, innovations in social science, science, and technology. But this time, the speed will be overwhelming for the unprepared."

"New variants of viruses; copying error is one of the Villains : )***

All of us who use copiers at office might have suffered copying errors many a times. Viruses also a victim of it! Here goes the story.

All living things grow/sustain through cell replication, a kind of copying. Virus also does the same. But virus is technically not a living thing. Therefore, it cannot, by itself, replicate/copy. It needs the support of a living cell. For this purpose, once entered into a living cell, the virus hijacks the mechanism of the cell and change its functions in a manner the virus does want. And start replicate itself or generate its own copies in hundreds and thousands of numbers. As in the case of our office copiers, at times, copy errors do happen. Over a period of time, an accumulation of these errors along with other factors result in the formation of a brand new variant! Now, giving back a bit of idea from my copying experience to Virology. In the same manner the quality of a copier decides the quality of copies, if the infected cell is having too advanced mechanism or too bad mechanism for the poor virus to manage, copy errors will be definite. Superspread will enhance the possibility of viruses' encounters with such body cells.

Tailpiece: Some virologists now suspect Covid virus can proofread! If it is true, copying and hence the stay over of the virus in the human body may be got prolonged?

"The Economics of Law :: In Economics parlance, world wide, law making and enforcement have monetary as well as social costs. It is justified when these costs are nullified or brought to an equilibrium position, by an aggregate equivalent monetary benefits plus social benefits in long run. In this, the social costs should also be individually brought to an equilibrium by social benefits. It demands the highest level of vigilance and prudence in its making and application. Once made, laws have to be accounted as high value assets in the public inventory."

"All economies in the world will initially suffer from combat against climate change. It should not persuade you to stop the combat. This combat is for saving economies as well, because money shall have no value once MOTHER EARTH IS SICK.

"Medical analogies for #management

In #Medicine, at times we can see, though surgery is the standard primary cure for some illness, considering other factors that may make it more risky and tarnish the intended purpose, prudent surgeons device alternative protocols containing a host of activities that can provide a cure without surgery. Here, the goal of the surgeon is always the cure, not the conduct of a surgical procedure. Mangers can also keep it mind, always. "

"On Climate Change and the Need for Adaptation

While the World becomes more aware, responsive and proactive in combating climate change, we should also recognize the fact there could be things irreversible, partially reversible, and those require many generations time for tangible rollback. Among these there also could be irreversible things that occurred due to regular life-cycle activities of the universe.
The current status of our awareness may not be helping us for such a classification of climate issues and device different approaches. All these make #adaptation - living in harmony with nature - as important as the mitigation measures. It is inevitable for survival. I think, #PRIMO Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi rightly emphasized this aspect on Nov 1 at COP26 - UN Climate Change Conference . Let the discussions happen in this aspect as well. We need all these as if the constituents of an effective medical treatment protocol for regaining health ( from this terminal illness of climate change). It is scientific.
As proposed by the #PRIMO Modi, this should find an important place in the school curriculum across the world. I should say adaptation should be a part of life skills training from the early childhood.

Moreover, environmental aspects should be taught and trained to ensure decades long action plans announced by various countries are taken forward effectively by the future generations."

"On #rainfall in the fast changing nature

Rain is not the same as it used to be earlier in places having regular and lengthy rainy seasons. Then, showers were continuous and it started and ended more or less promptly. Now it takes lengthy gaps in the same season, sky collects water vapour tremendously in excess than usual, wind takes unexpected turns and trigger deadly cloudbursts. Following are floods and land slides. Probably it is an indication of the kind of rain we will be having in future. Said that, we have to study the markings these rains drew in the previous four or five years, keep our rivers and lakes broader and deeper more tributaries, and relocate habitats wherever found essential. Don't hesitate to change yourself to accommodate the changes happening in the nature. Because, it is such adaptations that helped all the living beings we have today, including the man, to write thousands of years of history of their existence.

Nature does not do anything with out giving repeated warnings. Because it really cares. It also provides inborn capabilities to all living beings for knowing that. But the human beings, may be because of the weight of their ability to think more, losing such talents quickly. It is against the science, methods and philosophy of existence."

"Enterprise as a public service

Application approvals for opening small shops to large companies by appropriate authorities are, in fact, a handshake between the respective governments and entrepreneurs to share governments responsibility of catering to the needs of the public ensuring fixed standards. If both the parties understand it thoroughly and imbibe the same into their actions, the outcome would be nothing else other than sustainable social and economic development.

"On this World Mental Health day, being a farmer deep within the mind, and the one always keeps the bonding with nature, my advice would be to enhance interactions with nature and see the result.

"The ultimate truth is that there is nothing like public and private industry unless some enterprise is established exclusively to serve own family members. And all other legally established enterprises share the responsibility of governments in serving the stake holders.

I think such a redefining of Industry would be highly essential in the years to come, in which all has to fight the effects of climate change as a single defence force."

"A “periscope article” to view “the Status quo Syndrome at the Transition Juncture”

The Economic activities of the World have arrived at a Transition Juncture. Journey further ahead demands migration to newer things more than ever. Whether it is principles, theories, technologies, strategies, policies - everything, length and breadth, demands it. Of course, the cause and catalyst are the same thing for majority of sectors – climate change, which is aggravated by fast declining natural resources. A few years back these were just hypothesis or concepts. Now we started to see things around us – no we are in it. Transition is a new idea to nobody. All know it is the basic science of this universe.
Then what is the peculiarity that causes the title of this article to be there? Being a part of the changes of different times, and also as agents of change who push the wheels of change to keep on moving, we invented a lot of socio-scientific-economic theories, built technologies on it and made products out of it. In that journey, quite interestingly or rather ironically, we have also invented a lot of things that are supposed to safeguard us from changes and keep us in the comfort of status quo! Quite naturally, adherence to status quo would cause a lot of changes remain overdue. And transition junctures are developed out of this status quo syndrome. It makes transition even more challenging.

You may be wondering why a serious argument without examples. Don’t be got perplexed. Place any example from any sector at the beginning of the article and pull it through the narrative under close watch and you would arrive at the last two words of second para “more challenging” in a convincing manner. May want to try it.."

" "If a man knows more than others, he becomes lonely" - a leadership challenge

Social Media always would have some hot quotes circulating. Now it is the turn of " If a man knows more than others, he becomes lonely" - a quote from the Retrospect Section of an autobiographical book "Memories Dreams Reflections" by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss Psychatrist & Psychoanalyst. The next sentence to the quoted text is " But loneliness is not necessarily inimical to companionship, for no one is more sensitive to companionship than the lonely man, and companionship thrives only when each individual remembers his individuality and does not identify himself with others."

In my opinion this situation happens when one learns a lot and share comparatively too little, "face to face". In another words a lot of knowledge a person thinks not sharable as such or not due to share or not experiential for that person and intimate ones or not due yet for its application. At some point, this accumulated and concealed knowledge will start to haunt the person. And its impacts would start from loneliness.

Therefore, the solution is, the person who acquires knowledge should synthesise it in parallel, convert it into a sharable format and share it for common good always.

In organizational context, starting from family to any larger institutions, the context as identified by Carl G Jung is a hard challenge but successful leaders always tackle it effectively. Ultimately I see the quote of Carl G Jung as a leadership challenge.

" Identification of the real challenges- challenges that are core to existence-, addressing them and progress is the natural way of life. Ironically, most of the issues in the human societies across the world are not the product of these real challenges, but the product of diminishing ability to identify real challenges from the information overload and incompetence and/or lethargy to face the identified challenges 🙂

" Capt. Sully, that 30 seconds and some management lessons
Sully is a very interesting 2016 US movie based on the autobiography "Highest Duty" by Capt. Sully Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslo. Capt. Sully, a US Airforce fighter pilot turned airline captain, carried out an emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River. After three minutes into the flight, at an approx height of 850 m, the Airbus A320 strikes with a flock of birds, which damages both the engines. Though a return to the nearest airports is considered initially and gets ATC clearance for it, Capt. Sully decides to ditch the flight on the Hudson River in which all 155 passengers and crew survive with only minor injuries. An enquiry by NTSB follows the accident. In the film, at the time when flight simulations could have proved Sully's decision was wrong, the veteran pilot brings in "human factor" into the public hearing process. It is the time taken by the captain and his first officer to assess the situation, which the simulations did not consider. In the simulation, the flight returns to the airport at the very moment it strikes the birds as if previously instructed to do so, with no time for thinking and deciding, which shall not happen in actual situations. After some strong arguments, it is decided to input 30 seconds as decision making time into the simulation. With this delay the simulations are run again through the same navigation route for an emergency landing at the airport. This time the simulated flight hits high-rise buildings, and Sully's judgement is proved right.
The movie, apart from picturizing a veteran flight captain’s honesty, thorough knowledge, expertise etc also packs an amazing message to management practitioners in Sully’s 30 seconds human factor. The quality of that 30 seconds decision making time remains critical in all organizations when it comes to choosing the right from among plan A,B,C. In the movie, the Plan A remains theoretically the best choice till the Plan B is established as the right choice that saved all the lives on board. Even while Sully fixes his mind on Plan B and proceeds with it, the ATC is trying to convince him Plan A, that is returning to the nearest airport safely, is possible and he should consider it. But it does not alter his final decision and at the end his decision proves to be the right decision. He also thoroughly realizes during the course of decision making that the time taken for analyzing the situation has already made Plan A a bad choice. A lot of management lessons….

In the Sully, Clint Eastwood proves again he is an amazing director and no words to praise my all-time favourite Tom Hanks’s naturally awesome performance - as usual."

" Teachers Day is Mentors and Trainers Day too, because mentoring and training are integral to teaching. Story of a successful experiment.

In 2016-17 period, at ASAP Kerala (Additional Skill Acquisition Programme - Kerala) , we successfully experimented “Organic Development of Training Framework alongwith Master Trainers through an embedded Protocol” - don't be got frightened with the lengthy (self explanatory) title 🙂 you can call it "Organic Protocol" The application strategy of the protocol is organic and hence very simple. Handpick potential Master Trainers from among those who have thorough understanding and experience in the related domain and get them go through a three days residential workshop. You prepare a detailed storyboard (we also called it a Clap Board, since completion of each activity in it gives a reason to rejoice and clap) for them ensuring following outputs: identification of training needs of the trainers, design a framework for T o T, develop content, map delivery methods and experiment and develop training tools. But you don't reveal it, you will use it only for mentoring without creating a feeling of intrusion. In that interactions you will get tremendous opportunity to improve your storyboard. Till the end it will be an evolving, a dynamic one. And never becomes an authoritarian rule book. On the opening day, after appropriate icebreaker, just tell them "You have to Design and Conduct your workshop" End of the event you will find you have effectively and successfully conducted a Master Trainers Training programme that has given you an improved framework for Trainers Training with suggestions for improvements in the actual training framework and content!!! Try it out 👍👍 Happy Teachers - Mentors - Trainers Day ❤️ A special Teachers Day Greetings to all the awesome Mentors and Trainers worked and working with ASAP💐💐

"As India celebrates Teachers Day tomorrow (Sept 5th), following are my suggestions for future
1. Primary education should get the topmost priority with more research, recognition and stronger ecosystem - because basic molding happens here and other tiers cannot guarantee wonders if it doesn't happen here. We are talking about deciding the future of the nation.
2. In technology institutions of all types, teachers should get opportunity for industry deputation and professionals from industry should get academic deputation.
3. All research programmes - Arts, Science and Technology - should be well aligned to the development goals of the nation - at least for next 30 years.

"#PopulationChallenge*** Before the end of this century, the world would face yet another challenge as grave as climate change - how to engage more than 10 bn population creatively in the society to make world not a bad place, if not a better place, for all.

"#StrawTheory for #management

This is actually an analogy between yesterday's relearning of atmosphere and management 🙂 When you drink something using a straw from a bottle or cup, you think you are sucking the liquid. No, you cannot suck a liquid. Instead you are sucking the air over it to create a vacuum or low pressure area so that the weight of the air in the atmosphere pushes (atmospheric pressure), it up through the straw and into your mouth. Here, weight of the air is a contribution of the gravity. Then we come to see that, it is the gravitational force that plays the most critical role in the above activity. This can happen in management as well - while leading an organization/mission, carrying out an activity etc real leaders and efficient managers never daydream it solely their ability. They will rightly find out the gravitational force of any event/context, all other players/forces, and draw the right relationship with proper recognition. Understanding the above context is your management capability. The straw is your management tool for effective and efficient deployment of all the above. And creating a vacuum over the liquid in the straw is your management skill .

Have a great day!"

"Creative thinking along with household works

In my observation creative-thinking-homework that you may carry home from work can go along household works like, sweeping, dusting, washing clothes, rearranging things, gardening etc (please supplement the list). You will not be booked by your family members for stealing family time for work. By the way, many brilliant people in the past, like Einstein, had the habit of walking extensively for creative thinking. What I am proposing is a tweak to it befitting to the present day living environment 🙂 But do not attempt it while cooking or assisting it, eating together, sitting together, while going for a picnic etc End of the day you will be having a pleasant family (because you are not keeping family members and family commitments away for homework) and fulfilled work place commitments. It is all about 'I can do it' kind of positive attitude and approach without any gender bias. Try to practice it, if you haven't already. 👍👍 Happy Sunday #CreativeThinking>"

"Social Chemistry of Transformation

The experiences of the world tell everyone that the only workable thing transformation agents can do for transformation is remaining to be effective catalysts that trigger and nurture urge for change in the right direction. Transformation is a sustainably and positively progressive change, which should be acted upon by the subjects of transformation themselves. Three reactants in this process are people, nature and time, with nature and time posing greater challenge for the catalyst. Perhaps the greatest challenge in this process is the fact catalyst is also a reactant in dual role. Therefore, the catalyst has to manage its internal chemistry in a way that facilitates its external catalytic role. Any action or reaction that undermine this rule of social chemistry would end up with short-living physical changes. #Transformation

Human beings (most other animals as well) always need efficient, effective and powerful leaders, who can channelise the collective intelligence, creativity and power of people for the betterment of all - the real guidance. In the modern technology parlance, leaders mostly act like high-tension electrical lines connected to distribution equipment. If there is no such a high-tension line, people's power will be radiating almost like unpredictably deadly thunderbolt - tremendous energy that we cannot tap and causes destructions. Therefore, for existence, all human societies should ensure, they are led by efficient leaders, who emerge quite organically. Emergence of such leaders, in fact, was the starting point of formation of all civilizations we had/ have."

However it does not discourage you from keeping copies of vital information in external devices like note book, diary, tab, mobile phone notes etc. But while doing so, you should treat it as a common data security measure instead of an action out of distrusting your brain.

Rising mental health issues - a societal equivalent to climate change

As per a news article on WHO website dated 30th January 2020, more than 264 million people worldwide are affected by depression. The report also tells us the burden of depression and other mental health conditions is on the rise globally (Here depression alone accounts for more than 3.5% of the world population!)

A World Health Assembly resolution passed in May 2013 has called for a comprehensive, coordinated response to mental disorders at the country level.

Recurrent depressive disorder involves repeated depressive episodes. During these episodes, the person experiences depressed mood, loss of interest and enjoyment, and reduced energy leading to diminished activity for at least two weeks. Many people with depression also suffer from anxiety symptoms, disturbed sleep and appetite, and may have feelings of guilt or low self-worth, poor concentration and even symptoms that cannot be explained by a medical diagnosis.

I consider, the rising mental health issues as societal equivalent of climate change. It may change (perhaps started to change) the over all social climate. If it is not harnessed now, the results would also be similar to what happened when world was too late in recognizing climate change as a reality.

The contributing factors have to be identified and addressed root level. Information obesity could be a major contributor. Imprudent use of information platforms by individuals makes minds a duping yard.

Let us think early!

Mass media has strong influence over the thought process of people. The things that are repeatedly projected in their minds would influence everything they do. Therefore, every professional in the mass media may want to ensure daily dose of information given to people is a scientifically healthy mix that would nurture healthy minds - today and tomorrow. It is very similar to the healthy food for our body. Please think aloud because it is powerful enough to decide on the destiny of civilizations!

Intuition is also produced using some crude logic by the brain, which works in the subconscious and cannot be traced. That is why those who make statements like “that is not right, that will not succeed” etc out of intuition answer the “why” question with the stereotype response “let's wait and see”. It does not imply all the intuitions are nonsense. Quality and reliability of intuitions depend heavily on the authenticity of regular intake of information by the brain. A person's regular sources of information exert very strong influence over the making of intuitions in the absence of the application of self developed or trained logic. This is a self analysis of my own brain :)

Deteriorating listening skills and increasing personal and social issues are inversely proportional, visibility.

" When we go back through the time line, to the maximum extent our information and thereafter imagination can take us, we see that, during those days knowledge acquisition happened in open environment and flourished through collaboration. Therefore open learning and its collaborative development are natural ways,and hence there is no question about their success or sustainability. But what happened to us is we are now far away from that natural ways, and the present generation has to learn to retrieve such skills. Of course, we additionally require some more measures and frameworks to measure the learning process as well as to ensure quality that are being demanded by the present living situations. We have promising technologies and techniques in hand to pursue this process."

" I think further concerted efforts are required in HR planning and R&D in health care. Since environmental issues are accumulating day-by-day paving way for new diseases and increased occurrence of existing ones, the demand-supply-gap in HR as well as Equipments in health care sector might become drastic in the years to come. We may require more devoted contingents of well trained physicians and simpler and low-cost technologies and equipments.

"It is quite common that first launching of technology devices, especially in places with high density of population, generates a public sentiment that the new system is either improper or inadequate. In certain cases perseverance alone will help people to overcome this situation. But in other cases corrective actions will be necessary. The problem need not necessarily be with the technology, where as, in most cases the villain is the inadequacies in the strategies that are being deployed to develop and maintain the new systems. Failures in the part of the authorities to create awareness as well as train people in using the new system add oil to the flame. Sudden/premature and massive implementation of technology to replace manual systems will be like massive cardiac arrest. Well planned and phased implementation with community participation will ensure success. It points to the need of proper training to implement e-governance initiatives – whether in academic or administrative or commercial establishments.

"I think, education is embracing ICT tools more and more strongly all over the globe. It is the need of the hour in fact. We have to establish more tested and reliable systems in place to overcome the pressures from over population (which is feared to cross 10 billion by 2050), climate change etc. Expecting online learning to adore the main stream position of education seems to be not a wild dream any more Definitely, now it is not an issue of pedagogical principles alone, where as it is greatly becoming a means for existence as decades pass.
