One word responses
Based on my ADVENTURE CAPITALIST column published in BUSINESS GOA magazine this Podcasts speaks of importance of letter writing that is being considered as a "dying art form".
Friends are not causes of one’s happiness. Foes are not causes of one’s misery. Wisdom is not competent to bring an accession of wealth; nor wealth competent to bring an accession of happiness. Intelligence is not the cause of wealth, nor is stupidity the cause of extreme poverty. He only who is possessed of wisdom, and none else, understands the order of the world. Among the intelligent, the heroic, the foolish, the cowardly, the idiotic, the learned, the weak or the strong, happiness comes to him for whom it is ordained.
Why India was a global economic power
Ancient Indian, or Vedic, philosophies and scriptures have provided valuable knowledge for the betterment of the human race. Yoga, Ayurveda and meditation are just three diverse aspects that have come to be revered by many across the globe.
However, there’s another facet of Vedic knowledge which we’ve virtually forgotten – the economic and administrative (read management) aspects. Vedic people were not just healthy, innovative, and intellectually stimulating with scientific tempers – but also prosperous. Prosperity is a mirage in the absence of a sound economic system; you don’t need to be an economist to agree. Yet, we’ve never bothered to appreciate the wisdom of Vedic people, let alone study their system, probably assuming that age old traditions and practices have little to offer us in this ‘advanced era’ of globally connected economies.
