The relationship between Money and a Company

What is money ? what is a company ? we know that money is what drives a company- but what is that intense personal relationship between both of them that binds them together? Lets try and find out....

A company is a realisation and product of a person's thoughts. a kind of mental process being made real.... It is a personification of a persons convictions in his dreams and in his abilities...It is also a kind of means towards a common end...a company becomes the assembly line where the person's dreams are made true.

Now, money. Money is that quantity which is a measure of a person's value in society. it is a collective measurement and is not of a particular person's opinion. It has that true and pure nature of the river ganges - it brooks no one person's opinion. it is so pure, because it is a direct reflection of the society's need for the object in question , opinions and discussions be damned. It is true- because it cannot be explained or rebuffed - it simply …

The root of money - From Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand

"So you think that money is the root of all evil?" said Francisco d'Aconia. "Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil? "When you accept money in payment for your effort, you do so only on the conviction that you will exchange it for the product of the effort of others. It is not the moochers or the looters who give value to money. Not an ocean of tears nor all the guns in the world can transform those pieces of paper in your wallet into the bread you will need to survive tomorrow. Those pieces of p…

An amazing definition of Ego

The first thing to be understood is what ego is. A child is born. A child is born without any knowledge, any consciousness of his own self. And when a child is born the first thing he becomes aware of is not himself; the first thing he becomes aware of is the other. It is natural, because the eyes open outwards, the hands touch others, the ears listen to others, the tongue tastes food and the nose smells the outside. All these senses open outwards.

That is what birth means. Birth means coming into this world, the world of the outside. So when a child is born, he is born into this world. He opens his eyes, sees others. 'Other' means the thou. He becomes aware of the mother first. Then, by and by, he becomes aware of his own body. That too is the other, that too belongs to the world. He is hungry and he feels the body; his need is satisfied, he forgets the body.

This is how a child grows. First he becomes aware of you, thou, other, and then by and by, in contrast …

Just an observation

I read yesterday that Modi was elected on the basis of his performance and not on the basis of his presentation. an amazing thing. if nothing it shows that my countrymen have matured. more so , it is a sign that from now on, only performance will be sen, reviewed, rewarded.
one more thing that troubles me is the status of IT in India. Somehow i have this really bad feeling that technical services will somehow reduce in India - If it comes true most of the companies are going down.......actually it already did - wipro has opened a call-center in indonesia with a capacity of 900 employees. Is this a start of a depression or is this just a flash in the pan - only time will tell....
on a different note , it will now be difficult for my engineering brethen to get well paying jobs in the it sector. i saw an interview on NDTV with one of the people of tech-mahindra -these guys are putting up a university where people will be trained and the best selected. that makes sense - a ready pool , obs…
