India-Superpower in 2048?


Recently, came across this enthralling TED video based on statistics. Do we envision a hope here?

I am optimistic if there is good leadership at the center of Indian Politics.

The greater fool


“The greater fool is someone with the perfect blend of self delusion and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed. This whole country was made by greater fools.” This is when Sloan Sabbath tells Will McAvoy in the recent popular series of ‘The Newsroom‘ created by Aaron Sorkin.

I am amazed by this dialogue in the sense how perceptions work in nations with same kind of investors all around. This is not applicable only to principles of stock investing but also to our daily life situations. We believe in few things, go against those beliefs and then justify why we did. If you are in a consultancy business or a stock broker or a palm reader or a lawyer, you know your previously held beliefs over fundamentals but just to keep up with the business you are in, you tend to make sell what is against your belief just in the hope that someone will buy it in the future. Thats when we learn how to play games. Not just this, there are people who are tend to modify their beliefs over time because that’s much more comfortable and easy to maintain. Who is the greater fool then? Do we realize how we become one in real life situations?

This greater fool theory relies on trends, opportunities and psychologies in surviving in life and in stock markets. Its one thing which is common in all the nations. All of us try to supersede our peers by becoming that greater fool and make beliefs over experiences which were sustainable and not out of the box. We tend to lose out on our passion in the process of becoming that common fool and run with the world around us. Anticipating a life which we wish to live, we think, talk and express other than what is right or wrong? We know there is someone in this world who might not be as capable as you so as to buy that plan. Be it the blame game or pushing sentiments over love, honesty and integrity. When will the world be a place where we get suggestions not based on hypocrisy, advises with no manipulations, words with no hidden interests and love with no condition? World will be a better place then. We must not share what don’t believe in. Its better to remain silent then to spread something which we can’t practice, social issues will then be resolved. Until then we are all greater fools, and some of us greatest.

Gun Control, Really!


Saddened by the news of death of children in the US, there is an instinct in me which can relate the unfortunate event of the west with the old issues in the east. The twitter is trending with Gun Control as a measure to control the misuse of arms by few socio-paths existing in the world. But, is this issue really an obstructive one? And how is it related to the east? Well, several nations need some effective regulations in Gun politics as the measure to eliminate this misuse. There are several mishappenings around the world over these issues and how terrorism is reaping the fruits. Human mind is that complex web that can work the worst things out in the best possible way. Will this destructive human mind ever be cured? I am sure there are issues that are known and by awareness can be cured.

While there are so called entrepreneurs who have businesses in selling and exchanging these weapons to private license holders, there are also numerous ways that these dealings take a different approach. One of that is the dealing of weapons under government scrutinizing body. Why can’t it be possible that these private license holders not just take a permit from the government but also from an investigative body that carries out the due diligence over these licensed permit gun holders and keep a track on them. Moreover, the influx of these weapons should be through a structured approach even if they imported from different countries. There must be certain rules and regulations passed to protect this. Many more parameters can be included in the approach and make it more effective over different Arms Act or policies brooding over it and not preventing it. A good government can always solve this problem of Gun Politics. And this should not do anything with the defense sector of the nation. That is a nation’s right over security and control. But, the small businesses over weapon trading and manufacturing should be solved with tight protection and should have a justifiable reason to carry it.

This is not just a problem of one nation but many. Simple governance methodologies can solve this problem and it won’t give space to one in becoming a weaponizing socio-path and break the law. The law can change it. Strict laws can control the network of terrorism which is a huge act and castigate them. Civilized can be controlled, freaks can be prevented in becoming mass murderers and a man can be saved in becoming someone treacherous over religion.
