20 Years after Xth Standard !

Time just flew....cannot believe that it's been 20 yrs since I completed STD X at Marian Junior College (Old name for Marian Sr. Secondary School, Kalathipady, Kottayam). Excited about meeting my classmates and teachers at the 20th Anniversary Re-Union which is scheduled for tomorrow (26th Dec) at Kottayam, the land of 3 L's (Letters, Latex and Lakes). Social media was the backbone for Organizing this event, thoughts about which were initiated about 2 yrs ago :-) Facebook page, which was created to link (and search) the batchmates (V-Marians 1979-92) helped us reach out to over 65 batchmates - over 25 have confirmed to attend the first such event organized by any batch from our Alma mater. Looking forward to the D-day tomorrow.

De-Mystifying 'Understanding of Business'

A laudable effort by SHRM India - here's an article by Pradeep Mukerjee on their site .. I thought Pradeep hit the nail on the head with this statement: Understanding business: why is it important? It is extremely important for any professional to understand what the business he or she is in is really about. Without such an understanding a professional will have a limitation in appreciating how his or her role contributes to the larger whole. A role may boil down to a set of tasks - done because they need to be done. We all know what that does to an individual’s motivation levels.
