How to manage a Country of a Billion People – III – Case Study (Germany)

Germany along with the rest of the Europe countries like England, France led the World with its philosophical and scientific work which would go on and give the World the material wealth it has today.

Germany’s Struggle to Find Itself: The World Wars

Germany’s ambition led the World into two World Wars (I and II)  in the early 19th century. It created vast scale loss of life and destruction of property for the World. But it also heralded Germany into the leading countries of the World with excellent infrastructure. It would go on to become one of the leading exporters of the World for house, automobile and clothing industries. Germany is the only country in the World which symbolizes “Perfection” and it can be seen in its
manufacturing output.

Revolution: Philosophical, Industrial, Nuclear , Automobile, & Construction

Germany saw many revolutions in its country: philosophical, Industrial, Nuclear ,  Auto-mobile, & Construction. The philosophical revolution in the 17th and 18th century with the likes of Kant, Schopenhauer established the social fabric in the country. This led on to the Industrial Revolution (along with England) where it build world-class infrastructure for its citizens across the entire country.

It would also go on to see Nuclear, Automobile, & Construction Revolutions in the country where it would build Energy products, World class Auto-mobiles and road infrastructure products and home construction products. Scientist like Einstein, Heisenberg and Schrödinger would give the World Nuclear Energy. Pioneers like Gottlieb Daimler would give the World high-speed cars.

Leaders: Philosophers, Scientist

Germany has produced some of the most prolific personalities in the world with the likes of Albert Einstein, Schrödinger, Immanuel Kant, Schopenhauer. They have given the World some of the leading ideas, inventions and products which have bought immense wealth. This has again emphasized that a country is known by its leaders.

Road to Perfection

Germany’s continuous strife for Perfection has led it to be one of the wealthiest Societies of the World with the best available infrastructure. India can learn a lot from Germany’s risk taking abilities, its drive for perfection, to build the best in class products. India currently imports everything in the World and is only an outsourcing destination till date. If it has to go anywhere (ditto China), she has to build products. Products with Perfection. Borrowing a page from Germany is best what we can do as we are at least a few centuries behind them.

Germany has the one of the World’s leading Civilizations where its leaders are pondering on issues like Multiculturalism, Arms & Ammunitions, World Trade and Economies, Employment. It will continue to be one of the World’s leading countries for centuries to come.

Love, Lust & Money

November 29, 2010

Love, Lust & Money

I woke up
this mornin

Wonderin about
Love

The short burst
of happiness

Which can carry
one for a
lifetime

And then the
long wait for
reunion

In between lies
the mountains
& oceans

To cross

The waitin
can drive
one crazy

Makin me
wonder

Whether its
worth it
at all

The noon
& the evening
passed

I saw many
ways

Some off
Lust

The others
of Money

None brought
me home

To Love

The night
came crashin
on me

I am still
a lonely
Soul

With only
memories

Memories of all
the good
times

We spent
together

The Look

November 28, 2010

The Look

One scans
the depths of
the oceans

And hiked
many a
mountains

Looked at
a thousand
faces everyday

For a
hit

All one gets
is a
byte

Which makes
one
wonder

Is it worth
livin anymore?

Then one
meets
someone

The heart
ticks &
rolls

Life gets
another
kick

Till then
one ambles
on

Here &
there

And to
nowhere

Walkin a
tight rope

Lookin out
for the same
look

Once again
& again

I sit &
wonder

Is this my
story?

How to manage a Country of a Billion People – II – Case Study (USA)

November 26, 2010

How to manage a Country of a Billion People – II – Case Study (USA)

This is the second in series of the Blog “How to manage a country of a Billion People”.  Hopefully we can take on some of the goodies from America and implement them in our country to build a Society.

Fabric: Social Revolution

After sailing from England, the white immigrants entrenched themselves in America. The civil war united South & North America to United States of America. Then the black revolution which went on for almost an entire century (20th century) liberated the blacks from slavery in America. Today, a black African-American is  the president of the country.

Values of America

What makes America tick as the foremost superpower of the World? It has excellent values & Environment for Innovation: Support for Underdog, Risk Taking, Courage, Fairness, Immigrant Friendly Country, Capitalist Society. It is the only country in the World where one can go from rags to riches fair & square.

Infrastructure: Industrial Revolution, Automobile Revolution, Computer & Internet Revolution

America went on through a number of revolutions to make what America is today. The Industrial Revolution along with Europe in 18th and 19th century. The Automobile Revolution in the 20th century and the Computer & Internet Revolution in the 21st century. It is currently producing a Biotech Revolution with Silicon Valley taking the lead. Some of the prominent Biotech companies are Genzyme, Genetech, Amgen & Biogen

Immigrants

It is said, America has been built by immigrants. It still attracts the largest number of immigrants from the World. The immigration laws are the most lenient among the Western countries which makes it home to the best of the talent in the World. Immigrants continue to see America as the #1 destination for building their lives. Some of the prominent immigrants who made it big are: Obama, Google (Sergey Brin, Larry Page), Yahoo Founders (Jerry Yang & David Filo), Vinod Khosla.

Examples of Society @ Work: Traffic Sense, Old Age Homes, Social Security

The American Civilization is at the foremost of the Human Race with a number of facilities for its citizens to make it the best Society in the World. Old Age Homes, Social Security, Medical Care are among some of the many infrastructure measures which America provides for its citizens. It has an excellent traffic sense which is the most basic measure of a Society unseen in the East yet.

Lots of Leaders

America has continuously produced leaders which take the country to its next peak. Its excellent environment for talent has produced leaders like Obama, Google (Sergey BrinLarry Page), Yahoo (Jerry YangDavid Filo),Vinod KhoslaAbraham Lincoln, Feynman, Martin Luther King, JFK,  Intel (Gordon Moore, Craig Barret), IBM (Thomas J Watson), Ford (Henry Ford), Howard Hughes, Clint Eastwood.

America continues to reinvent itself: Socially, Politically, Economically and as a Civilization. It is perhaps the only country in the World which can make the planet a better place to live if it chooses to embrace the rest of the World citizens.

The End

November 26, 2010

The End

Centuries pass
by

Empires come
and go

People fade
into the dust of
time

A few of
them become
immortal

The Old Man
wants to stay
away from his
death

The kid wants
to break
free

The boy wants
his pot of
gold

And the girl
the sight of
her Lover

Me in my
mid thirties

A bit old,
weary and
wiser

One night
i sit

Up and
wonder

To what
end

Does one
live

I scanned
my childhood

My school &
college days

The teenage
life

And the outside
World

My end stealin
on me

The answer remains
elusive

I must still
walk on

Island of Love

November 26, 2010

Island of Love

In the vast
oceans of
this Universe

Wave after
wave

Of Empty
Humanity

An uneasy
calmness

Of Unending
darkness

One is lookin
out for a
tide

To take
them

To the island
of Love

One sometimes
drifts

Away from
one’s Loved
Ones

Into the arms
of greed &
lust

Some drift
forever

Wither away
never to
return

To the island
of Love

I wakeup
one day

In the middle
of a storm

I must
swim

Or hitch
a ride

To my
Love

To the island
of Love

Paradise of Love

November 25, 2010

Paradise of Love

In the Paradise
of Love

One can sleep
forever

With Peace

One wakes
up

To a Sunny
day

Vivid with
Energy

Walkin on
one’s own
path

When you have
gone a
distance

The Sun breakin
on you

And you can go
no more

One can return
& rest

To the Paradise
of Love

One then gets
up

Looks around

And starts once
again

On one’s
Journey

When you have
gathered
enough

For your Love,
Friends &
Family

And the night
becomes cold
& misty

One can come
back Home

Into the Paradise
Of Love

Day in &
day out

When one has
seen & felt
enough

And has
no more
desires

The eyes
weary

And the will
extinguished

To go no
further

One can sleep
forever

With Peace

In the Paradise
of Love

The Enemy

November 24, 2010

The Enemy

I heard
once

From an old
man

“The only enemy
is within
you”

I always
believed

It was the
other way
round

Cursing the
whole world

Now with
the dusk

Approachin
me

With each
day

Passin by

I am begginin
to see the
light

Which the Old
man

Tryin to
shine on
me

I stumble
on

My own
feet

Greed, Lust,
Fear &
Anger

Are my
friends

All the noble
values

For which
saints yearn

Have left
them far
behind

In my
childhood

I am a
slave

To my own
faults

“The only enemy
is within
me”

The Touch of Love

Love unites

Talent to
its Craft

An Actor
to the
Movie

And one
Country to
the another

Love heals

The empty
Tummy

The cryin
Eyes

The Wounds
in a
Battle

Love binds

The Ally &
sometimes
the Enemy

The Poor
& the
Rich

The near
& the
far

Love bonds

A Daughter

Mom

A Friend
with another

And the Lover
to her
Love

Seasons

November 23, 2010

Seasons

Love saws
the cold
winter

And soothes
one in the
summer

It provides
shelter in
rain

Love is for
all Seasons

It provides
hope for the
underdog

And shade for
the harrowed

The poor wear
it as a
blanket

And the talent
as their
armor

Love is for
all Seasons

The farmer,
soldier &
the craftsmen

The Mountains,
Seas & the open
Skies

Cities, Countries
& the World

All have
been conquered

Love is for
all Seasons

With it

The young ones
cling to their
Mom’s

The dogs to
their masters

And the boy
to the girl

Love is for
all Seasons
