Lessons from work #1

I’ll thank my company for giving me a chance to actually go out and attend an event today. I had a lot of things on my agenda, a lot of business needs that needed to be addressed but what really justified attending the event was that I got to hear Aman Nath. He is the Founder and Chairman, Neemrana Hotels and was the keynote speaker at the conference (summit).

Now, I have been an audience to people like Harsh C. Mariwala, Founder, Marico; Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman of Microsoft India; Ashish Vidyarthi, Film Actor and several others but Aman’s keynote was one of the best if you were to ask me (maybe because I heard him speak today only). He started by telling the audience how he made the Neemrana hotel when he bought the property which was a ruin for 7 Lakh back in 1986. In fact, is a historian and doesn’t have any formal education in hotel management or in business

Since the summit focused on HR and how to manage people, he shared a few pointers and how he manages the people he employs. He says:

1. There should be no need for hierarchy
2. An individual should be given a chance and shouldn’t be judged by the level and quality of education he/she received
3. Stop telling them you are better than them
4. Make them feel better than they are
5. Talk nicely to people and pay them respect

Now, I don’t want to make this casual post into a knowledge one but I loved the fact that he tried to keep things simple and really shed some light on how important it is to be human again. A great personality and knows how to tell a story.

I am sharing a few photographs that I managed to take

There is no introduction.

I’d write an introduction but I have no clue what content it would carry.Starting a blog has been on my list for a very long time,but I keep telling myself okay I’ll start tomorrow and it has been 4 years(call me lazy or call me clueless).So I just decided to start and let everything fall in place.
I write about people,about things I come across in daily life,incidents that happen and they often go unnoticed,but they sure have something to offer.I aim at touching lives and extracting out positive from everything.You might get to read something that comes straight from my mind(my thoughts).A book review maybe in a week or more,and maybe some of my photographic and poetic work too.

A little bit about me-I like to read,travel,socialize,photograph things,write and talk.

Join me in my adventure and suggestions/comments/questions are always welcomed.

Come aboard.
