As I look back, over the years, I realise that I've ventured far away from what I started my career with. I was supposed to be this management teacher whose passion lay in the areas of leadership and motivation. However, with time, especially after I wrote "The Great Indian Dream" with my father, I have given very less time to writing on management! So much so that when I look back today, ever since the start of The Sunday Indian, I have only and only written on economics and politics, and at times on sports and cinema, but never on management! So this time, I thought I'll write on my first love! More so, I have a reason for it. I really have been thinking with the way our system is functioning, the best way to feel good and change things around is by changing ourselves, and by ourselves being the change we want to see! There is hardly anything that we can't do if we want to, because we are all diamonds in waiting in various stages. Some of us yet to be discovered, some of us yet to be cut, some of us yet to be polished, some of us yet to dazzle. And some of us who have lost their sheen and sparkle a bit with time in need of a re-polish! But we are all diamonds, that's what I've always believed about human beings!
