Maximizing yourself

The release of Bollywood movie (or should I say a self-promotional Indian film) Aap Ka Surroor speaks a lot about how the Indian mind works. Taking advantage of a certain monopoly over a particular industry and promoting yourself to do something that is clearly not within your set of talents is what Mr. HR has unsuccessfully tried to do with his film.

When I first saw the promos of the movie and there was a different name in the Producer slot, I wondered whether HR had used a pen name this time. Because it is ridiculously clear that it was his movie through and through.

Self-promotion has been taken to a new level through the release of this definitely do-not-see movie. With this emerges a new concept of selling yourself, but definitely not a pleasing one…..

Progressing towards a new horizon…..

1 $ = Rs. 40.something
Inflation – drops to 4.8 percent.
Sensex – continues to boom.
Growth rate – Crossed 9%.

The above statistics are beginning to implicate India’s stunning recent growth and progress. And leave me, for one, very pleased. In the age of rapid globalization and liberalization, India is beginning to emerge as the focal point of the spectrum of progress in developing countries.

Add to that, justice being imparted to the victims of the 1993 Mumbai blasts, a Formula One race track in development at Delhi by 2009 and the potential return to form of both the national hockey and cricket sides and you feel like there’s positivity flowing all around.

In the end, the country’s vast talent pool is all that makes the difference…..
