About myself-Spade a spade
Motto: To work with honesty and integrity.View Point: Everyone has the right to live with dignity and to progress provided one serves the mankind with honesty and devotion and does not trouble anyone. Concern: Different rules for different people, Fun and frolic prevailing over sense, Facing irresponsible propaganda that stems without weighing both the sides of the coin, Passing the buck, Hasty and opportunistic opinions not based on facts that are later on defended by hook or by crook. Anathema: Rabble-rousers and mischief-mongers, Nuisance emanating from spicy and entertaining rumors, Modern day monsters adept in clandestinely pitting two parties against each other to promote their interests, Demonstrating power over innocents. Dilemma: Making friends without creating enemies, Taking stands, To do exactly what others think I should be doing especially when they also have divergent opinions, Tackling Hobson's choices, Getting one and losing two in the process, To somehow look happy and smart amidst immorality to prevent ridicule and to get deserving benefits. Mistake: Posting CV on line when it was too late - My fate was by then already decided by cosmetic considerations. I am still paying for mistakes and even suspicions of others. Whose business is it anyway! Risk: Proving well placed persons wrong even inadvertently. Lamentation: First fighting odds and then unreasonableness if physique and looks don't support capabilities and performance contradicts judgements. Challenge: Wooing detractors after I am wronged by deceit and deprived of chance to justify myself. Dream: A systemwhere empathy replaces sympathy and which is free from intolerance, superstition, selfishness, ill-will, jealousy and exploitation. Promise: Compunction towards those who I unintentionally hurt and forgiveness to those who intentionally hurt me. Wish: Peace, progress and prosperity for one and all. Submission: I need to be unambiguously told where I was or I am wrong so that I can also help myself. Otherwise I invoke my fundamental rights including nil interference from others in all my matters. Finally: I too have good intentions. May Almighty bless everyone! My heartfelt regrets if it is also taken with a pinch of salt.
