Ye duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai. Years ago, Mohd Rafi sang in Pyassa, ‘Ye duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai.’ (Even if one gets this world, what is there in it?) Shahajahan built Taj Mahal in 22 years, and soon his own son Aurangzeb imprisoned him. Taj Mahal is still standing after 400 years but Shahajahan is not. Alexander the Great was to begin his journey to conquer the world. A ‘fakir’ sent the message to him that he won’t be successful. The king went to the ‘fakir’ who told the king that he had everything, why did he want to trouble so many innocent people. The king had a change of mind but his ministers who had made preparations to win made the king agree again. Alexander lost the battle in India and conveyed the message to the world, “I closed my fist with jewels and other costly stones to carry with me, but the fist would get opened again and again and I left the world empty handed.” The shipping magnate, Onassis, commented in his last days, “I was as rich at the time of birth as I am today, I do not know what I have been doing the whole life.” The dejection in his words was also seen in the life of his daughter who finally committed suicide. We see people loaded with money but with incurable physical, mental or social problems and they are more unhappy than the rest of us. These tell us about the nothingness of material possessions. Someone rightly said, “Man is the only living being who is seen crying when he is born, he blames others when he is living and he repents when he is dying.”

After completion of Lanka War Hanumanji was enjoying LTA with his friends. He got an email on his laptop from Accounts requesting him to clear his dues before 31st March - dues related to his tour for bring Sanjivani Booti for Laxmanji. He ignored the first mail. But after 3 - 4 reminders in two days time & receiving a call on CUG Mobile from Accounts Dept., he had to fly to Ayodhya canceling his leave. He submitted:- TA, DA Bill, Bills of Sushen Vaidya, Hospital Charges incurred for Bharatji when he met with an accident during his travel, Cost of Sanjeevani Booti for Laxmanji, Transport charges (1) Where is your tour sanction report ? Asked the HR & ADMIN Dept. Hanumanji got it done by requesting to concerned officials 2 or 3 times. (2) Hanumanji claimed T.A. bill for air travel - but he was given only second class sleeper charges. And all other expenses on medical,Sanjeevani Booti, Fee of Sushen Vaidya were not reimbursed. When he asked for the reasons, he was told that (a) As per his designation, he is entitled for IInd class sleeper only. (b) He can not get claim for other things as he does not have bills. Then Hanuman approached Shri Rama and explained to him about the deduction on his tour expense report : Then Ramji ordered the related official to pay for Air travel & other charges as claimed by Hanumanji. The officer came with the rule book & told Shri Ramji "These rules are created by the grandfather of Dasharathji, If you want to overrule your forefathers I don't have any problem." Ramji became speechless. So he thought for another way to compensate Hanuman. He called Hanumanji & gave him the claimed amount in cash, But how can Hanumanji take cash money from Ramji ? Hanumanji told " How can I take money from you for treating Laxmanji? Laxmanji is equally reverend to me as you are. " In his heart of hearts Hanumanji thought why he listened to accounts fellow, cut short his LTA, completed all the formalities & put Shriram in such an awkward position where he has to offer money to me. Hanumanji continued his work with the same attachment as he used to after this incidence also. Hanuman was almost a god, but for us mortals, learnt a different lesson & that was MORAL OF THE STORY : "NOT to do anything without proper sanctions FROM HR & IMMEDIATE BOSS : Whatever may be the urgency or importance of the job" At the most Laxmanji will die - nothing more will happen.

Worth reading…Written by one of the recruiters. Wishing you all Happy Recruiters Day! I love being a recruiter…Seriously, I think it’s the best job in the world. Yet 80% of people who enter this industry, fail in the first 2 years, leave, and are never sighted again. And it’s true, it is tough being a recruiter. And I believe in the modern era it’s getting even harder. During the downturn it got even worse. We all worked harder and harder, and earned less and less. On top of that, our customers seem to resent us more than ever, as can be seen in my recent blog, ‘God I hate recruiters’. Ironically there is a fate worse than being amongst the 80% of recruiters who fail. Yes, being an average, mediocre, ploddy recruiter who survives is real purgatory. Why? Because this job is too hard, has too many disappointments, not to be great at it. You have to be a great recruiter to reap the rewards that make it all worthwhile. So for the top 5%, the cream, recruiting is the coolest job in the world. Here’s why: Recruiting is a win/win/win. Unlike most commercial transactions, recruiting is not a win/lose scenario. If I sell you a car I aim for the highest price, you push for the lowest. One of us will feel we ‘won’, the other a bit despondent that we ‘lost’. But in the perfect recruitment scenario everybody wins. Happy client, happy candidate, happy you. This is not as trivial as it seems. There is something intensely rewarding about doing a job where everyone is grateful, everyone is excited with the outcome… and then you get paid as well. You create great outcomes Maybe the coolest thing about being a recruiter is that this is a job where you actually make good things happen. The candidate is reluctant to go on an interview, but through your influencing skills they reluctantly go along, do fantastically well, love the job, and get hired! The client won’t see your top talent because of something they spotted in the resume, but you persist, explaining the person is better than the paper, the client relents and your talent gets the job, gets promoted and in time becomes your client! For me, when I recruited, this was the real buzz. Making things happen. Controlling the process. I would crack open a beer on Friday and reflect. That would NOT have happened if I had not seen the opportunity and influenced the outcome. Beyond cool. What we do actually matters And of course that leads us to another reason why recruiting rocks. What we do actually matters. I mean it really matters. Recruiters get a horrific rap sometimes, and often it’s deserved but hey, at the end of the day, we find people jobs! And that’s a good thing right? Something to be proud of. It makes an impact. We change people’s lives. We solve companies staffing issues. We help people further their career ambitions. Fantastic! One of the beautiful things about our business is that it is so measurable. This does not suit everybody I know, but in recruiting there is nowhere to hide, and I like that. If you have the right temperament, you will thrive in this competitive environment, love the fact that you can measure yourself against your competitors and colleagues, and revel in the transparency of fee-tables and pay-by-results. Truly in our business, you eat what you kill. You can own your market. If you have longevity, if you maintain integrity, if you deliver service and outcomes that your customers want… you can elevate yourself to a true trusted advisor, and then recruitment becomes a beautiful, beautiful thing. All your work is exclusive, all your candidates come via referrals and commendations, clients treat you with respect, seek your advice, bring you into the tent . You actually ‘own’ your patch and that is a wonderful place to be! Yes it’s true. Recruiting Rocks. When it all boils down, what all of us want from a great job is just two things. Fun & Money. And if you’re a great recruiter you’ll get lots of both. The fun of winning, the fun of finding people jobs, the fun of working in a job that actually counts. And money? I don’t mean how much you earn, although of course that important. I mean working in a job where you get a great return on your efforts. That is where it is at! So if you are having a down day. Never forget. Fun and money. Recruitment rocks!

Presentation Two females were chatting in office. Woman 1: I had a fine evening, how was yours? Woman 2: It was a disaster. My husband came home, ate his dinner in 3 mins & fell asleep in 2 mins. How was yours? ... Woman 1: Oh it was amazing! My husband came home and took me out for a romantic dinner. After dinner we walked for an hour. When we came home he lit the candles around the house. It was like a fairy tale! At the same time, their husbands are talking at work, Husband 1: How was your evening? Husband 2: Great. I came home, dinner was on the table, I ate & fell asleep. What about you? Husband 1: It was horrible. I came home, there's no dinner, they cut the electricity because I forgot to pay the bill; so I took her out for dinner which was so expensive that didn't have money left for a cab. We walked home which took an hour & when we got home remember there was no electricity so I had to light candles all over the house!! Moral: Presentation does matter. No matter what the reality is!

Wealth..dark side In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago's Edgewater Beach Hotel. Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the United States at that time. These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men: The president of the largest steel company, The president of the largest utility company, The president of the largest gas company, The president of the New York Stock Exchange, The president of the Bank of International Settlements, The greatest wheat speculator, The greatest bear on Wall Street, The head of the World's greatest monopoly, & a member of President Harding's cabinet. That's a pretty impressive line-up of people by anyone's yardstick. Yet, 25 years later, where were those nine industrial giants? Let's examine what happened to them 25 years later. 1. The President of the then largest steel company (Bethlehem Steel Corp), Charles M Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt. 2. The President of the then largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane. 3. One of the greatest commodity traders (Wheat Speculator), Arthur Cutten, died insolvent 4. The then President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail. 5. The member of the US President's Cabinet (the member of President Harding's cabinet), Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail just to be able to go home and die in peace. 6. The greatest "bear" on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide. 7. The President of the then world's greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide. 8. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed suicide. 9. The president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless. What they forgot was how to "make" life while they got busy making money. Money in itself is not evil; it provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy; Money is only a medium of exchange. We need two kinds of education: a) One that teaches us how to make a living and b) One that teaches us how to live. Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face existential problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction. Similarly we live in time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will surely become a means of destruction for us as well!

The greatest "bear" on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide. 7. The President of the then world's greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide. 8. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed suicide. 9. The president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless. What they forgot was how to "make" life while they got busy making money. Money in itself is not evil; it provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy; Money is only a medium of exchange. We need two kinds of education: a) One that teaches us how to make a living and b) One that teaches us how to live. Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face existential problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction. Similarly we live in time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will surely become a means of destruction for us as well!

Wealth..dark side In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago's Edgewater Beach Hotel. Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the United States at that time. These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men: The president of the largest steel company, The president of the largest utility company, The president of the largest gas company, The president of the New York Stock Exchange, The president of the Bank of International Settlements, The greatest wheat speculator, The greatest bear on Wall Street, The head of the World's greatest monopoly, & a member of President Harding's cabinet. That's a pretty impressive line-up of people by anyone's yardstick. Yet, 25 years later, where were those nine industrial giants? Let's examine what happened to them 25 years later. 1. The President of the then largest steel company (Bethlehem Steel Corp), Charles M Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt. 2. The President of the then largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane. 3. One of the greatest commodity traders (Wheat Speculator), Arthur Cutten, died insolvent 4. The then President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail. 5. The member of the US President's Cabinet (the member of President Harding's cabinet), Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail just to be able to go home and die in peace. 6. The greatest "bear" on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide. 7. The President of the then world's greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide. 8.
