Managers are born, not trained...........

Here is an excerpt from a group discussion on Managers are born, not trained. Though I wasn’t there as a member participating in it, but as a silent spectator. I was extremely moved by the way each person in the group played their parts. I would like to pen in all the points I scribbled due course of the discussion, though the words by the speakers mentioned below are not exact but I see to it that all the points are covered. Here it goes.( I prefer to pen it down as a conversation itselves so that its easy for the readers to understand and its easy for penning in too:))

Speaker 1- (after a good morning and intro). Well friends, the topic of today’s discussion is ”managers are born and not trained” and I completely agree to the topic. As a matter of fact , all of us sitting here do have some managerial traits and some among us have honed up the traits so that they become better managers than their counterparts. Moreover we also learn from our parents friends and relatives, some stuffs related to how manage certain things in life hence I feel that managers are born. Thank you

Speaker 2- I tend to disagree with my previous speaker. If according to him managers are born, then why are many management institutions running from the length and breadth of the country to produce some of the finest managers? Management is both science as well as an art. It is the art of managing things in a scientific manner. A manager needs to be groomed and later he specializes a particular stream which makes him an expert, so in my opinion one has to undergo training to evolve as a good manager. Thank you

Speaker 3- well, I feel that managers are really born; the qualities and attributes for a good manager are genetic. These inherent qualities come to the fore when the concerned person is exposed to the actual work scenario. Management basically means managing the people or the so called sub-ordinates who work under a particular manger thereby getting the work done at right time and in right orientation.If we take a look at some of the leading India corporates like the tatas, the birlas, the ambanis and the singhanias, we infer that none of them had any professional degrees or attended any formal management courses, yet all of them made a niche for themselves in Indian business. Similarly, general electric and ford motors did not boast of management cadre to begin with. Same is the case with the Japanese giant Sony. They have reached the present position without the professional assistance of managers. All the aforementioned are pointers to the fact that managers are born and not trained. Thank you

Speaker 4- I appreciate the arguments given by my previous speaker, which are true not doubt. But today the entire scenario has changed and the world has become more competitive, so today all the above mentioned eminent tycoons are facing stiff competitions from the market. This is an era of specialisation and keeping in view that all of us have managerial skills, one has to accept the fact, that is only after a formal training from the reputed institutes, we are able to find put in which particular stream, one can give his/her best. For instance a person can have very strong interaction with most of the people he meets but then can his communication skill make him a good negotiator?? If yes, then he can be a good human resource manager or a marketing manager. A professional training can help a person to choose the better option, which comes with honing of the managerial skills and discovering more about ones attitude and aptitude, hence in today’s context managers have to be trained. Thank you.

Speaker 5 (the last one)- No doubt, management is the in-thing today and I agree to my previous speaker that a training is a need to groom an individual to become a result-oriented manager, but at the same time the individual should have the qualities in him to become a manger, as the saying goes “ you cant convert a donkey to a race horse”. So it is important that the individual should have it in him to become a manager. Thank you.

Well, this was what all it was about. I think I have traversed through out its length and breadth and the information provided are the best recollected from my memory and from my notepad. Last but not the least along with the above I would like to pen in my views on the same here. Its as follows.

Speaker 6 (yours truly)- if we look at our mothers, we can see the epitome of good mangers is sans any management training. They look after our house, maintain the monthly budget and also see to it that the house runs smoothly. This fact will point that it is not essential that managers have to be trained or professional managers are trained managers. All of us have managerial qualities from a very early stage in life like managing our studies and at the same time managing out extra curricular activities and to a certain extent managing the amount of money we have in our hands, be it pocket money or the sum we earned. We also manage our folks indirectly by making them agree to our wishes and desires and at times manage our girl friends with sophistication (;-)). So why cant we manage our job without a professional qualification and of late we can see people with management qualification cannot manage a decent job for themselves. Whereas people with ordinary qual. Reach great heights just because of their managerial skills which they sharpen with each tide. As a matter of fact, with the exception of the premier institutes of management in the country , no other institutes are able to inculcate managerial qualities in an individual. As also management is quite practical unlike the theoretical aspects that are taught in various management institutes, so all said and done, an individual is a born manager and no amount of training can mould him into an exceptional manager………………

The above mentioned is what I have always felt regarding the case, but there are more pros and cons.
I hope you had a wonderful time going through the above and your valuable comments and suggestions are welcome, as this is a matter of generic opinion……….

A wonderful experience that led to house arrest !!:((

I love rain. More than that, I love getting drenched in the rain. Its been a common scenario since I was a child. And on the other hand the people at my home hate it.Whenever they see me soaked , they start their usual routine of advices and reprimanding. I just hate it (used to), but no use. Have told a 100 times to folks that whatever they say/do, they can’t stop me from getting soaked in the rain as I do love it. Am I sounding “kiddish”?? well if it is, then I don’t give it a damn.(sorry for being rudeJ).

After my dad got transferred to some other place, there was a great relief for me regarding the above mentioned stuff. I get back home fully drenched on rainy days, mom screams, but I never care. But that’s not the case with dad. Though he is not a person from army, navy (or whatever be it) when it comes to strictness one would surely doubt that.

Last Friday I went to college with my buddy shivraj on his activa. Usually it would be the other way round, but due to the presence of dad in town that day I had to persuade shiv to take his bike so that we go to college. Situated around 15 kms from our place, the road to my college is completely guarded by plush greeneries. The most disadvantageous factor is that you don’t find much of a shelter to rest in case it starts raining.

It was around 7.30 in the morning. After my usual schedule, I called up shiv and fixed the meeting time and place. The sun was at its high. When I started to leave home dad asked me some stuffs, I would like to put the conversation in as-it-was condition:-

Dad- Suraj, are you ready?? Where should I drop you?? Did you call shiv??
( see how concerned he is!! He’s asking all these to a boy of 20.. I hate it)
Me- yeah I called him. He will be waiting near the bridge by 7.50. I will go by my selves.
Dad- I will drop you.
Me- No need. I told you I guess , that I will go by my selves.
Dad-(Angry)- don’t you understand what I say. Just come along with me. No more conversations.
Me- ( I knew this would happen, just not to worsen the situation I replied-) ok. As u say.( I was annoyed too.. it’s just because I hate people being overprotective and conservative!. My parents are one of such sorts, I have tried changing them but my views and conversations regarding the above mentioned were considered futile:(()
(got out of home.. me riding pillion to dad)
Dad- It seems it would rain heavily today. Have you got the rain jacket or umbrella with you?.
Me-( he knew that I don’t carry all these) No!! I don’t think It will rain. Even if it does I am happy to get soaked. I love rains.
Dad- (very angrily) I know you love rain. But once you are down with fever means its me who end up burning my pockets and time to drive you to-fro doctors place.
Me- I don’t fear fever. It can be bothered.
Dad- This is the problem with the younger generations. No matter how many times we plead to them not to do something, they seem totally unperturbed.
Me- ( was just listening all those patiently)(screamed) Would you please stop it??
( felt sorry for it laterL)
Dad- have this cap of mine.( he took it out from the front pouch of the bike)
Me- I don’t need it.
Dad- you will son. Listen to me. Its not going to make up much of a space in your bag.
Me-(just to avoid one more round of firing, took it and kept it on my bag. I was sure that I wont be using it no matter what.) Thanks.

He dropped me where shiv was waiting and we started off to college from the meeting place. Reached college about 15 minutes as this guy would swirl past you no matter which bike he rides. Being a “speed”/”velocity” lover I dint stop him going over an 80 km/hr in his bike. We reached college safe and sound.

It was around 3.00 in the evening. The sun was shining as it was in the morning. Everything changed all of a sudden. By around 3.45pm it started to rain. A question popped up in my mind on how am I going to reach home without getting drenched. I would have ignored this question, but since dad would be there at home, I had to ponder on that . Still around 45 minutes were left for the classes to get over. I thought the drizzling would stop by then. It dint. It was 4.30 and classes were over.

Shiv and me decided, no matter what we are getting back home fully soaked. As per our decision we started off from college in the heavy rain. We could have waited for a couple of minutes but we dint.

Amidst plush greeneries, heavy downpour, we kept driving back home. It was a very nice experience, ”kiddu” to be precise. I loved it as I was subjecting myselves to such a rain after a very long time. We got into a bakery near our meeting place just to dry ourselves. Shiv had something to eat, and I had one “veg puffs” and 2 bottles of cool drinks. (drinks during rain is an owesome experience u know?heh).

After spending some time there, I got back home. Dad was sitting in the verandah, his posture and attitude was clearly reflecting that he was waiting for me to get back home. By the time I got back, my dress was completely dry. Dad asked me whether I got soaked or not? I blatantly lied to him that I dint.

The rest of the day went on peacefully. I started feeling a bit uncomfortable with my throat the next day.( it was due to the drenching+ 2 bottles of cool drinks) I kept quiet as I dint want anyone to know about this. I went to the nearby med shop and bought my selves some throat lozenges, expecting things to go off well.

The case was worse the next morning. I was down with very high fever and throat infection. And I had to go and let out things to dad so that I can consult with a doctor. And as I expected I got a round of harsh scolding from dad and he took me to the doctor then.

I was diagnosed with severe throat infection and was advised 650mg antibiotics three times a day for five days. Today is the second day of medication. I felt I could get up today, that’s why I am here now.

One thing that is pretty sure is “house arrest sucks”. Till now I was confined to the 4 walls of my room doing nothing other than sleeping like a log.I just realize now that if at all I had atleast used that cap which dad gave me, I would have extricated being bedridden for 3 days. Now that I lost many a attendance at college(as if I care..lols) and above all, there would be a new member in my bag from now onwards, a rainjacket.(:(()..

I feel I am making this a boring sort of a game, so its high time I bid a good bye and get back to my bed and take some rest.

Hoping to get well soon…………………………………………………………:):)

Last post: june 13,2009
Next post: july 21,2009

Well, folks this in turn provides for the basic fact that I am a procrastinator..( don’t be annoyed as the aforementioned is the only word used in my posts.. its just cz its an attempt to adumbrate the traits in me or in other ways the inferences from the so called “The process of learning and figuring out myselves”..) The time span from june 13- july 19 (i.e) around 1 month and 8 days weren’t a hectic slot in my life.. I used to do nothing during most of my leisure time other than “ sleeping like a log”.. And some useful things done in due course were:-
*Going to college(sigh) daily, not cz of fear of attendance shortage but the new semester (i।e) started off with some kinda funda in class which is been mentioned later in the post.
*Read some good books viz.
The great Indian novel by Dr।Shashi Tharoor, Ignited minds (APJ),Wings of fire(Dr।APJ), The Da vinci code ,The alchemist and so on।
*Started worrying about my future। It all started as a result of my stint at T.I.M.E trivandrum for couple of days as a student( I still am though).
*Started routine cleaning of my stuffs such as ma room(as a result of blatant request by mom),dads car and bike(which are been in use by me currentlyJ) .
The things done at college were(are):-
**Started playing cricket in class room( not the real one though.. it’s a nice experience u knoe/? Making balls outta paper and a portion of desk as bat... It used to be a common stuff at school but the same at college reminded me of ma school days.
**Started playing cards.. I never used to play cards before.. The basic reason behind that was my grandma who never allowed me to play cards. Being an orthodox conservative Brahmin old lady she got some jinx with cards and never allowed her children and grandchildren (now) to play cards. Though both the aforementioned used to do except me, now that I am also on the race. :D

As of now these are things which make up routine stuffs and new additions to these rouines (under construction) will be furnished in consequent posts........ :):)

Just a post...:D:D

Huhh…3 days passed by… Was least aware of it… The basic reason is I wasn’t even able to stand up after the compiler design test… It was neither an innocuous one nor pretty harmful.. I don’t know.. Seriously this is my current position after spending my most precious 3 years of life doing btech.. Was I not interested in doing it before getting into it ??? or was I interested?? Anyway ! right now I want to extricate… Extricate from this suffused Btech stuff… The question of interest is of least importance now…Well!!.. I still have got 3 more exams to go for completing the sixth semester, appended with the phrase “not placed or unemployed”… At times I just ask myselves what is “that thing” which is a “feel good factor” which has struck me over the past 3 years?? and the answer is pretty obvious.. It is nothing but “nil” .. All I can say is for the past 3 years I was not “me” and it continues to be like this until june 2010 when I pass out of the college with a btech degree in hand(hopefully).. On a serious note, I can say , I got to learn many things from college... Got to deal with variegated mindsets etc.. If I am asked whether I had my life at college?? Even then the answer would be the obvious one..(i.e), NO… But still I have got one more year to be spent at college. Maybe things can change… The interesting thing is within a couple of weeks, I am going to be the super-senior at college… It could be “we” rather than “I” , with a special mention to my friends at college as well.. I still remember when I was a new admission at college , the way I used to get “ragged” by the super-seniors. And in a couple of weeks time its my chance to rag all the juniors of mine.. Could have done it earlier but I dint do it.. There is no particular reason behind it…And now will I do it ?? I still think I would preferably spit out a “NO” again.. People say ragging is the best way to establish amicable relations which juniors.. But as far as I am concerned I would totally disagree with the aforementioned. Is ragging the only way to befriend juniors?? Well that requires a bit of thinking… Above everything all I know is “ I am going to be a 7th semester b tech student soon” and within a year I am going to bid adieu to my college and its surroundings… Am I happy about it or not?? Well I guess this is not the right time to answer the question as I already mentioned about the year ahead which I am going to spend at college as the senior most student. . Hope fully I will be able to pen in a new post titled “What b tech has left me with” within a span of an year…. A long wait till then…………………………….:)

hartal->black day......

Sunday,8/9/09…. Time- sometime around 7.30pm…. Flash news on air, “CPM has called for an hartal tomorrow in TVM city and cannanore”…. I was watching some old movie in kiran t.v when I got to hear my phone’s message tone… It contained a message from a friend of mine, it was “JAI KU… Our elective exam has been postponed”…. I dint understand anything as I wasn’t aware of the flash news…. I replied to the message asking for the reason.. Got a reply about the hartal .. Soon after that my mobile’s inbox started to flood with the flash news and about the postponement of exams. I was wondering! , why because the exams where scheduled only for Tuesday and hartal is on Monday… Anyways I was least bothered as I don’t have any exam on Tuesday.. I switched over the channel to “manorama news” where I got to know that this hartal was called as a consequence of governor sanctioning the CBI to prosecute a top CPM leader.. As I am not interested in politics that much, soon after getting to know the reason I switched back to the movie channel and continued watching the movie, though I lost many a portion of that movie due to the channel switch.. For some time after that I kept on watching the movie and no other thoughts crept into my mind... Then came an advertisement in T.V regarding some “Do’s and Don’ts while selecting a college to pursue higher studies”.. I started getting calls from some of my friends who were supposed to take their “software project management” exam on Tuesday, all of them were extremely happy that they got it postponed, and also for the fact that they get more time to study for the compiler design exam. Akhil told me the aforementioned reason and it was at that spur of the moment I realized that I haven’t bought the text book of compiler design and I cant buy it tomorrow if there is a hartal.. I started getting worried about it and at the same time cursing myselves for being a hardcore procrastinator. I planned to buy the book last Thursday and its next the Monday now , still no book in hand.. Just imagine what kindof a procrastinator I am.. I lost all my mood as I thought my plans to study atleast from tomorrow is going to be a failure... I went down to have my dinner and while I was having it, I got message from some other friend of mine which said” The hartal has been called off”… I dint believe it when I read through for the first time but later on I got to hear from dad that the hartal has been called off.. I was on seventh heaven.. I thanked god a lot as the shutters wont be closed tomorrow and I can buy the book… at the same time I was very eager to know the reactions of my friends who had exams on Tuesday. As the hartal has been called off its obvious that schools,colleges, exams etc will work as per schedule.. Though nobody were sure whether the exams have been postponed or not , I was kind of contented and satisfied that I could buy the book. I just thought to put the t.v again, but this time I wanted to know the reason behind the calling off.. Some news channel displayed “ HARTAL CHANGES TO BLACK DAY”… Black day???? What is that???? Well, whatever be it, there wasn’t any news regarding the rescheduling of exams.. It still displayed “ KU,MG, KANNUR university’s have postponed their exams to be conducted on Monday and Tuesday, and the new dates will be published later.”.. It was then I realized that one simple call for an hartal helped 1000’s who were to take exams on Monday and Tuesday and at the same time normal life of masses is not going to be affected as the hartal has been changed to black day(“kari dinam”)… All these makes one proud of the Kerala government, and as far as the student community is concerned , Govt. of Kerala rocks a big time…….

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Well .. After a vexatious day, I am again here in front of my laptop for the sole reason….. u know what?? Hmm I will tell u.. Just to post in about something that made my day a vexatious one…. As it was mentioned I retired to bed around 9.30 yesterday as usual making my plans for the next day(i.e today). U could just imagine what plans a person or a boy of 20 would make if he’s currently traversing through an exam season. Hmm.. that’s quite obvious again.. Have got an exam this Thursday and the weirdest part of it is I haven’t bought the text book. Its been a usual routine in my house that folks wont allow me to sleep after 6.00am on sundays(how cruel is it right???)L, I know, but I don’t have any other go other than to wake up. If I don’t get up by myselves or soon after the first call from either dad or mom then the day would start with me listening to the biggest thing I hate in my life, u know what?? Its listening to their advices.(some people precisely call it “chori” in mallu). And you want to know what my folks spit out as part of the above mentioned “chori”? hmm.. here it goes,
Mom-(from downstairs)- “Suraj(scream)…. Get up its getting late..”
Me- “Mom I want to sleep for 30 more minutes please, I was studying all the night.”(anyways that’s the usual excuse I give and mind in return I am given some time extension but not more than 15 minutes:( )
(after some time, a screeching noise from downstairs again, its dads turn now)
Dad- “Dai…. Get up…. Enough of sleeping.. get up and do something useful like studying or some exercise..”.(I don’t know why dad always wants me to do yoga in the early morning.. I have heard that its very good for your all round development if you practise yoga daily.. Due to his blatant request I once joined a yoga coaching centre near my house and for my dismay I was tortured like anything there.. a thin man of average height would come and start standing on his head, shoulders etc.. I wonder why these people do like this, and moreover they make us do too. That’s ridiculous.. Unlike him or all the other people who came there to practise yoga I wasn’t able to stand on my head and all. And moreover slumber is something I cant despise too. So I left the place after giving the first instalment of fees :-D.
Me- “Appa i was studying all the night and I need some more sleep”
Dad-(to mom)- “ Look at your son, this guy wouldn’t even get up early atleast during exams.. and I don’t understand why he is not scoring at all inspite of studying all the night?? Simply trying to prevaricate by saying that he was studying all the night.. I wont believe it at any cost.”
(I was half asleep and I could hear all these and moreover I heard the sound of some footsteps climbing the stairs, I knew it could be either dad or mom)
Suddenly I jumped off from the bed and went inside the bathroom. After taking sometime to get over from the slumber I opened the door of the bathroom and saw mom waiting there. I knew she was about to start reprimanding for something because her face expression is usually very obvious. I thought it is for not studying the whole of yesterday + sleeping for long hours.. But I was wrong.. the reason was different today and it was the silliest reason ever.
Mom- “ Your room looks nightmarishngly untidy. You do whatever you want but I want it cleaned by noon otherwise no lunch today”
(The above mentioned were the only words from her mouth)
This is the smallest and lightest ever scolding that I have ever got from her. I meant it in terms of its duration and intensity respectively. I decided to clean it up. ( I forgot about compiler design :( ) .
To be frank, I occupy the whole of first floor of my house, except for one room which is dads, but he never gets into it. So literally the whole of it is used by me. So its always my responsibility to keep it clean. I dint have the mood of cleaning the whole thing up in the early morning but I had no other go. I started of with the drawing room and moved on towards the bedrooms and dining room. Initially it was just lifting up the papers lying on floor and basketting(my usage:-D) it into the waste basket kept at a distance. ( Basket ball has been my passion since 4th standard, so I have the habit of throwing things like the players thrown ball into the basketJ). It took me around ½ an hour to do so. And the next was destroying the cobwebs and removing the twigs off from the air hole which was occupied by a group of pigeons. I never wanted to “shoo” them off but it was dads order to clean that too. After all these heck stuffs one thing I got to know that is I wasn’t the only habitant of the top floor but also some rats and cats. Careful observation made me find all their homes and yeah I did destroy all of them too.

The time was around 2.00pm (remember I haven’t had my breakfast). Well once I finished the cleaning works (they are carried out once an year or twice, but not more than that) I called up the judge mom(:-D) to put marks(hehe). She came , saw the whole place neat and tidy and was happy. But she wasn’t sad that her son didn’t have his breakfastL.. poor me, got too strict parents.

After that I had a bath, and ran to dining room for lunch. I had a sumptuous lunch( my mom cooks really well). Meanwhile a thought of compiler design exam passed by my mind. I was feeling too tired after the cleaning works but still I thought after lunch I should study something.

Followed by the lunch I quickly skimmed through newspaper and came up planning what and to study for the day. It was around 3.45 when I came up.

I searched for the syllabus and luckily I found it out. But.. it was then only I realised that I dont have the compiler design text book with me.(haven’t bought it yet)… I wanted to buy it yesterday but dint go out due to laziness. And no book shops today. So I had nothing to do other than sleep or switch on my lappy. I was not in a mood to get another round of reprimanding for the day for sleeping again. So I just switched the lapp ON and decided to post.

Well one thing is most obvious about me I think is “I am a procrastinator”. I didn’t postpone the cleaning works because I am fed up of getting scolding from folks, they do treat me as if I am a small kid aged not more than 10. That’s ridiculous. Anyways I cant start studying today too as I don’t have the book. Better get a new one tomorrow and start afresh.:). I hope atleast from tomorrow onwards I will start studying. And luckily if that happens I am sorry to let you know that I will be away from this place until 9/june/2009 else this will be continued without a break….. :)

Ohhh Boy!!! After a very long time… I guess I had to wait for this day to restart my diary… But this time I thought y not try out a blog… Apart from the usual cut-paste topics it would be more realistic too… After a very stressful week writing my computer graphics and advanced microprocessor exam in the worst ever manner possible I just thought to switch ON my lappy which was lying unused or precisely in a “sparingly used” state.. I just realize these days that when I had that old Pentium IV, desktop of mine, I used to perpetually online, chatting, playing, blogging cut paste stuffs.. hehe. (by the way the links to those are attached, just take a look if possible.. dnt know u might get some useful redundant info(:-D)(:-P)), Too much of multitasking made that old desktop go bonkers…sorry!!! it made me go nutz all the time... All those made me force folks to buy a new lappy so that I can use it without much of a stress(luckily I got the “yes” node from dad when I asked about it for the first time) heh.. Well I guess I m running away from the topic... hmm.. after a hectic week of 2 nerve-racking xams we got 6 days holidays for preparing for our next exam (i.e) compiler design, at the same time some of my classmates are getting just a day for preparing CD(compiler design).. I bet those people will score more than what a person would score if he’s given a week’s hols… And if it is me…huhh…. m blogging now… heh.. Hope it is being not viewed by my teacher a.k.a keerthy miss and I m sure that she would thrash me If she gets to know that I was blogging during the study hols and that too before her subject’s…hehe… Well, I was clinging on to my mobile for some time in the after noon, before taking a nap (looong one which lasted around 4-6 hours) i made a stern decision that I would start studying in the evening(evening means around 7.30-8.00(:-D)) and as always I dint feel like touching the books but for the first time I felt like touching my lappy and that too for penning a blog… Aint me a hardcore procrastinator(or not??)..???? I think I am..(heads up with lot of courage and enthusiasm)…. I was thinking of studying some academic stuffs since the day amp(advanced microprocessor) xam got over.. and I knew that I wont be touching the books until it is the eve of the next xam.. And gulping up some academic stuffs on the eve of the xams wont fetch you anything I guess.. (aint me right????).. But still I stand wonderstruck when I see many guys doing it on the eve of the xams and scoring helluva scores… And I got to see this from the semester 1 university xams of mine(our’s) in college… I basically feel that u don’t even get time to go through the portions the day before the xam and its great(n sarcastic too .. that I cant do it) to see that many jus open the buks the day before and score high…. Is that a special gift or do these people study without anybody’s knowledge??? I don’t know and I m still on the process of finding out the secret behind it… Anybody frank enough to let it out???? This space welcomes you then…hehe.. Oops I its around 8.00 in the evening(night… to be specific(:-D))… n yeah another day without touching the books… It might sound as if the day is over..heh.. yeah its just like that for me because I get busy after dinner strait jacketing my selves to slumber mode…. Hoping that I take out the books and read something atleast tomorrow(the next day)… And that’s my plan at the spur of the moment and I think I just post this blog and move on with my usual routine…… Good night… n sweet dreams… for all and myselves…(:))
