On parent’s outlook to the young generation:


A Lebanese poet Khalil Jibral says, “Your children are not yours; they are son and daughter of Life longing time, They came through you but not from you, You can give them your love, but not your thought”.


Effect of foreign influences is cutting our roots. We are becoming materialistic and godless. We need to accept the good things of foreign with discipline. Swami Vivekananda says, ” Hold your one hand tight and keep all the value system, bring them close to your heart and stretch your other hand to west, collect as much good things you can.” Dharma is the sole of Bharat; Religion is the life of our country.


Substances of external values have collective sub consciousness of our country. We have to recreate/ rebuild these cultures by organized efforts. We are the biggest democracy but not the best one. It must be transformed into the intellectual democracy. Create NGO, go to people. Mahatma Gandhi says, “India will become great if the last man of India become great and have food to eat”.
Managers along with professionals must indulge in these sorts of stuffs to rebuild the nation.
