A leader Who had No Title - A Review

  "A captivating story that teaches as it delights" read the quote of Paulo Coelho on the cover page of a book titled "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari", authored by Mr. Robin Sharma. The quote made me to add the book to my cart.  When I finished the book, a feeling perhaps it has to be the best book I have ever read. Googled more on Robin Sharma, and realized Mr. Robin Sharma is one of the top leadership guru's in the world. Felt a little ashamed that day that I never have heard about Mr. Sharma before reading the monk who sold his ferrari. Googled more on Mr. Sharma's books and realized every book of his is a best seller.  The day I finished the ferrari, I rushed to crossword to pick up the next one :"The Leader Who had No Title".

This world cup format sucks...

 2 groups. 7 teams each, 4 teams who play cricket, and 3 who are learning. 4 from each group qualify for the quarter finals. Look carefully, all the good teams need to do is to beat those 3 dummy teams and you are into the quarter finals. Once in quarter finals, now, all a team needs is to play 3 days of good cricket and you will be the World Champions of cricket, immaterial of how good or bad you were during the league stage. Just 3 days of cricket to call somebody a champion?

And they say, we are a developing country

  15th August, my country got its Independence. 26th January, which passed a few weeks back, my country became Republic. With Independence, India became a country which can be ruled by its own people, whether you like it or not. Republic, gave a constitution to us, formulated with it the fundamental rights for every citizen. Today, a simple question I ask myself: Are we democratic?  Do we still enjoy our fundamental rights?
