I love my India


Great Nations are built on the foundation of lot of hardships and the blood of our forefathers.

Indians are very well aware of their freedom and how it was earned. A sheer display of courage and pride for their country which was attempted to be choked by the invaders. Leaders and individuals alike fought  for their motherland in a struggle that lasted for years.

History experienced heroes, rebels, fighters and legends, who inspired souls with their determination, love for their country, their quest for peace, and above all the hope to bring a country to it's free state - free from slavery.

All this sacrifice and tolerance not for themselves, not for their families, but all for the sake of their countrymen, their country. This was no selfish deed, it was the calling of the true human spirit!

Years have passed since that time, 66 years! These years, the country witnessed enormous changes, right form the freedom of the country to the partition of Hindustan to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh; the wars and the fights that followed these partitions; the formation of the constitution of India; world recognition; advancement in science and technology; mastery in all fields of sports and games.....

But, above all, the best change would be the impression as an Indian, an individual of the country on the world map - which was the most magnificent.

Reading about history is one thing and living it is a pride in itself. I may not have witnessed freedom, but I am very proud to be an Indian, to be have born and brought in a country which is literally a genetic pool of individuals of various multiple innumerable religions, ethnicities, languages and cultures from various times, having their own individual history, Gods, prophets and dieties - which all merge together to give my country it's beauty!

God knows in how many languages are the newspapers, magazines, television shows, etc. printed or created on a daily basis in a country where thousands of languages are spoken, and is home to the 2rd largest population, 3rd largest armed forces, nuclear capability, space exploration ability, genetics research, etc.

Every other doctor or scientist in any other country is an Indian. Every other Owner or CEO of a company is and Indian. Indians are even amongst the richest people in the world. Home to nobel winners, reknowned scientists, knights, laureates, writers and poets. India - a country with cultures and traditions older than those anywhere else in the world, with religious texts older than even before the origin of most of the cultures and the countries.

Indian food and wildlife deserve a special mention - as they are the most beloved around the world! Indian food is perhaps the most cherished globally!
Within a short span of 66 years India has surely come a long way and is at par with the the leading countries of the world which have developed for centuries, and in most cases perhaps even better than them.

I can only say, the words for appreciating and thanking my country may end, I'm afraid they would not be enough at all to describe what it has done for all of us!

I just had this sudden urge to thank my country. Maybe this isn't even near to what I feel, and may even be quite abrupt, but I just had to put this down...

Blame it all on Quality


People from the Quality Industry can relate to this pretty well.

Aristotle has rightly said:"Quality is not an act, It is a Habit"

But the fact is, when there is the peak season and production is in full swing, some companies choose to ignore the Quality of these products, simply because Quality inspections demand time and accuracy, which the company looks at as loss.

Whereas even thought it is time consuming, it is an act that will enhance the Quality of your product and make it better, and in few cases even save you the trouble of a couple of lawsuits. But this is ignored by the management and the materials are dispatched, and when there are hoardes of complaints from the customers - the finger is quietly pointed towards the Quality team. Afterall it is the responsibility of the Quality dept. to look after that.

At that moment the production addicted management cannot gather the courage to take the blame for this.
Even if Quality dept. puts some stock on 'Hold' for analysis purpose, and there is shortage of goods in the market and a demand - the lot is dispatched by the management. Absolutely there is no concern for Quality at that point of time.

Meanwhile, no matter how many complaints arise, the Quality team also has to deal with that. Answering the frustrated and angry customers and facing them is perhaps the biggest challenge of them all. Even then, the Quality team is held responsible.

Today it has sort of become a universal process and almost every company does this. Wouldn't you agree?

However, there is a tiff between many departments in an organisation that leads to similar situations or even worse ones. I'll post about them later. Keep reading...
