Thoughts on Education system of our country
Good education system in India. Sometime feel for more details but applicability depends on the field of study.
My strongest skill
To observe the situation in overall perspectives, not just one aspect. To site an example, at 38 years age I joined as CEO of loss making District Central Cooperative Bank in India to turn around it. In the beginning, make detailed study within month with the help of present stakeholders to find out reasons of huge losses and solutions. Overall study gave clear picture of what is happening right now and immediate actions required. Then implemented with strong determination and courage to get the desired result and got it. Spirituality added flavor of values in the huge task with balance.
Important lesson learned
Everything is possible with strong determination and courage with trust in self and Almighty. Life with values go ahead with efforts and bliss. Situations come and go but stability of mind more important than other aspects of life.
