Enjoy Challenges Together

March 30, 2009
While I was clearing the old papers in my house I have come across thorough the ECT training file which we have carried out during June-99, almost 10 years ago. I have kept that file a side and cleared all the other papers. When I have opened that file after a while, lots of memories have surrounded me at once. To my surprise all of these memories are still fresh as if we have experienced this in the last few days.

I have remembered the beach cricket we have played on the arrival day. I have remembered Ullas explaining the rules of the training. I have remembered the Uduppa lighting the lamp and asking us the importance of lighting the lamp before starting of any training program. I have remembered the Khajana ki khoj we have filled as our values which will transform as Vision.

I have remembered the eggs can fly game we had played, I remembered the Blind fold we had played with our team mates. I have remembered Rakesh Sarin telling the perception and ways of changing it. I also remembered him telling how different people have different perceptions for the same act. I have remembered Bala telling us the Commitment and its importance. I have remembered the 5 minute play we have played and me playing as engine.

I have remembered each and every incident we had come across. But I wonder why these memories are still very fresh. We have gone though the various training programs in these 10 years. We do remember these trainings but not fresh as this.

Because this training was designed to encounter the day to day life, both in personal as well as official. We must be using these techniques every day. Naturally these memories will be fresh as we remember some part it every day.

This is a very nice training program and I see a lots of difference in myself. I sincerely Thank Wartsila management for designing such a great training program.

Eye donation camp on 15-03-09

March 30, 2009

We all know that eye is one of the most important organ in the body. There are millions of people in India are suffering from corneal blindness and waiting for the cornea donors. At the same time there are thousands of people die every day with good cornea, and due to lack of awareness and ignorance and even superstions, none of these corneas reach the needy people.

Firstly I have decided to donate my eyes on the eve of the new year 2009. I have contacted Dr. Agarwal eye hospital for this. While discussing with the hospital manager he had informed me the above. I thought that donating my own eyes will be of less importance if I could make at least another 10 people to motivate to donate their eyes.

I have discussed the same thing with the hospital management. Surprisingly they had come up with great support of free eye check up. Now I need some place to carry out this activity. Immediately I had approached our dealer M/s. Four stroke for using their office premises for this Camp. Then I was stuck up the expenses required for the camp towards tent, chairs, water, tea, coffee, biscuits and lunch for the doctors and other volunteers. I have decided to raise donations form the individuals for this.

Every body I have approached responded positively and donated liberally. Then I was with some excess money. It lead me to another thought. I have decided to sponsor spectacles for the poor people.

On the day of the camping the mood was total offbeat. People from our dealers employees with families, our Cummins entity employees with families, our customers and many more invited people had participated and made the camp a successful.

Mr. K Krishna kumar and Chandrasekhar of Four Stroke had worked as volunteers and made this camp a great success. Totally 50 people had donated their eyes. 60 people had got checked up their eyes. We have donated spectacles for 8 poor people.

I Thank every body who has worked, donated, and even visited this camp.
