I Urite to Wnderstand as much as to be wnderstood ;-)

Excerpts from conversations with master/yogi
me:what should I do now?
master: How can I answer that, a teacher’s task is to show the right direction ,its thee who has the choose the destination. Though I can tell you hundred things but its you who should find it out so that later on if you have trouble you don’t look at me and say “you asked me to do it” . so be an adult.

me:whom do you call an adult?
master: someone who does what he says . when you say something it’s like you are holding sand in your hand, you must be able to hold it as long as steadily possible.
And take the responsibility , own your failure .say it , i failed because i had wrong assumption or the goal was too realistic and it won’t be repeated.

I have taken decisions and I have failed but that won’t stop me from achieving my dream and grow into an adult. After all ,i am just 23 now.

My Idea Of Development

During my ycs ,youth citizen service, internship i could see a totally different picture of society. It was not as ‘i’ had ‘seen in movies’ or ‘read in books’ or saw in cities. The problem in there were not recent they were present since a long time ,longer than one can imagine .
stereotypes,inequality,lack of resources and lack of willingness all contributed a fair amount to make the problem gigantic leading to lack of educated youth ,lack of people who wish to stay in village and do something there.
I have heard my elders saying “he became rich and made a temple there” and then someone else said ,oh ,after all he did not earn it the right way so he is just spending some on temples.
I feel that personal interest is just initial force but the greatest happiness is when you see yourself “taking up a waste” and make it “into something useful”.
what can you do to fulfill the dreams of those who wrote
“sarve bhavantu sukhinaha,
sarve santu niramaya,
sarve bhadrani pashyantu,
maa kaschdita dukh bhaav bhavet”
which means
may all be satisfied and happy
may all get rid of diseases
may all See what is Auspicious,
may no one Suffer.
if this is the idea then imagine what effort it will need of the person .
but i am nowhere near to the person
i am lazy , i procrastinate and i am so ugly ,i have never topped ,made my investors happy .
my ideas are gonna die with me and the world will be worse than i entered here.
more plastics , more gap between rich and poor ,
but one good thing will be there.
“one less thinking human being”

but will i attain moksha , will be free from the cycle of death and birth
or
will i have to sit for exam again
until i get the certificate .
so it seems dying just like that is not an option.
rather
“kuchch kaam karte hain
kuchch waam karte hain
jag me re kar hi kuchch naam karte hain
jab mili hi hai zindagi toh
chalo apna hi upkaar karte hain”
may god bless everyone but starts with me.

so lets organize ourselves
lets build a team
lets know our roots ,the lineage
who were my grandparents parents
what they wanted to do but couldn’t achieve
let’s educate someone for free
let’s give healthy suggestion to old
let’s make someone happy by singing or acting

and live another last day ,last second ….after all
the journey should be worth to be told.
take this body and make it into something.

JOURNEY AS A FILM-MAKER

I HAVE SIGNED THIS PETITION AND SHARED IT WITH FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK. ITS A DIRECTION BOARD FOR MY MINI PROJECT OF MAKING A SHORT DOCUMENTARY ON “CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES USED IN DELIVERING BABIES IN INDIA 2017”.

https://www.change.org/p/make-it-mandatory-for-all-hospitals-to-declare-number-of-caesarean-deliveries-safebirth?recruiter=516116780&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink

“ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS”. I MAY BECOME A HUSBAND/DAD N I AM CONCERNED.

IT’S A PERSONAL ISSUE FOR ME . MY MOTHER USED TO TELL STORIES ABOUT EATING IRON RICH FOOD , PHOSPHATES WHILE I WAS IN HER WOMB AS SUGGESTIONS SHE USED TO GET FROM MY GRAND PARENT (BADE NAANU). WHEN DURING 8TH CLASS BIO LECTURE ,MY MAM TOLD THE CLASS ABOUT UMBILICAL CORD AND THE NAVEL AND THAT WE MUST NEVR HURT HER OR SPEAK BADLY ,IT WAS AN EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE FOR ME. EVERY HUMAN HAS SPENT THEIR FIRST 9 MONTHS INSIDE A MOTHER. ELEPHANTS GET MORE TIME THERE , 18-22 MONTHS, ALMOST TWICE THE TIME I SPENT AND LOOK HOW MAJESTIC HE IS.

I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING THE WEB FOR THE PAST 3 DAYS. LEARNNG ABOUT MIDWIVES AND PREGNANCY . HOW BABIES WERE DELIVERED 2000 YEARS AGO. YOU REALIZE THAT THIS IS NEVER TAUGHT OR TALKED ABOUT, WHY?? I MEAN ,WAS IT NEVER IMPORTNT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS AT STAKE WHEN YOU ARE BORN????

Theater facilitaor-first time

I am ever excited to learn and explore new fields. like a river taking its course without any questions. i was fascinated by a play nirbhaya directed by YAEL FARBER

I really liked the idea of  theaterical response to the incident. like a powerful tool to challenge any deeply rooted evil.
with lots of excitement and emotions ,which i possess infinite in amount, i thought,”one day i WOULD ALSO share something there on the stage, but…..yeah there is a BUT . when , how ,how much , who , where and why an engg. student wanna learn theater , as if i am a machine now. oh please, i can be happy and this really brings me happiness.
The next was a solo play in Nsd , i can’t explain how mesmerized  i was after that.HE WAS again revolting about the machine noise in some place and how it had made people’s live miserable.
Forum theater or theater of oppressed is a way to initiate it. After a 4-5 performances with mittika.I WISHED TO LEARN THEATER.

https://www.facebook.com/Shapno-Ekhon-138693012854124/?fref=ts
sapno ekhon provided me with the platform to learn from professionals . i go there once a week and its called group day .i am looking forward for the next one. there is so much enthusiasm in the group and there is lot to learn from the team.
After world mental health day performance, which taught me to be compassionate with people and take a stand instead of being a rock, silent bystander.
I was reached out by

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Khushi-Rainbow-Homesokhla/126683931072562?fref=ts

priyanka, if u are reading it, thank you for sharing this wonderful opportunity.
As a theater facilitator.
and then i met these wonderful kids there .
i made sure that anyone who wanted to learn was not left and that topic should be understood by all.
Gender stereotype in public places was something everyone related to and hence we started with exercises and activities to understand more about the issue and the recent incidents.
I wanted them to learn to act and change their attitude, bring out the positive ,understanding the importance of group and unity.
This was a wonderful platform to showcase their acting talent and that could only be done through practice, practice ,practice.
We lacked initially in making screenplay as some students were part of dance also.
believe me we were so afraid before the performance as if we were going to embarass ourselves and those who had expected great show from us. dance performance had set the bar really high.
“theater ke liye jigar chahiye, tum logo ne mehnat ki hai….achcha hoga”
but only we knew the problems…
1.forgetting dialogue…s
2. who’s next…s
3.last moment escape..s
4.confidence..s
5.stage fear..s
6.what if..s
i hope that it next time i can reduce some and add a few more problems.
so, if u have to teach a new thing …
i can be your resource person.

First tell me,What you Want to do

kabhi socha nahi…

ye batao…achcha kya lagta hai tumko???…bta nahi sakta …for hint ,jaise ki

“natural calling”..

Do u mean, meditation.

yeah,some people call it meditation,  too. But i am talking about a life crisis.

Its a crime to be     turning 24    and    yet not  found your calling.its not so easy as a nature’s call after all.

so same is my answer, i don’t know.

I see myself as a tool in my parents’ and my guru’ hand. I will become whatever solve their problem.    one thing they            want for me is happiness and my mummaa  always keep telling me whenever she calls    ” mann lga ke padho” .

But i am trying to learn a few things to be useful , intelligent ,   do   some skill based volunteering  ,   improving my communications ,   learning by doing ,   making lots of mistakes    and    repeating them,  one of them is listening to nature’call.

1      mean      there           are       still tons      of things     i have     not seen, tasted , felt , lived , experienced,experimented.

&nd believe me when i say, i live as if there is no tomorrow.

So , i am  not  fit to be a  leader , a  post man , a  gardener , an artist , an enginner, a flautist,    a           photographer,    a programmer ,    a theater artist,    an ias/ips officer, a  ….

This reminds me of many occasions when i have been left speechless in front of many people on a stage, coz  i went there unprepared.

Then       why  did   i    go  ???    what was i thinking before going on stage….it was so shameful …i still feel my heart beat rising.I forgot my lines during my turn on stage…

remember what the hr told you 3 years back….if you don’t know where u will be in 5 years , u will remain there itself.

so start with diary writing,go back to school…read….re learn ….forget what u don’t need..

make a goal with what u want to achieve on a day,,write it down….

its going to be monumental..

task…your maann telling you to  listen to “manwa laage” but do that thing which u planned .

come  back after a week and see if there is any change, to make a difference

lessons from mit launchx

The MIT Launch X Student(s)

Research shows that 90% of students are interested in becoming entrepreneurs, but 75% don’t know where to start.
Meanwhile, two-thirds of workers are unhappy with their jobs, having not explored or prototyped  potential career paths that might allow them a more meaningful and coherent life.

Entrepreneurship is an effective means of prototyping multiple career options while building foundational skills and mindset that are necessary regardless of the career path chosen. Through starting a company, a founder can explore the real inner workings of an

What is an Entrepreneur?

Someone who pursues an opportunity regardless of any resource limitations

Explanation

Entrepreneurs mitigate risks, but are not always inherently risk-loving. Entrepreneurs also range in types from technical background, to designers, to marketers — they need not be the “business” type. Ideas are also often overrated, since success is more often about execution and a combination of additional factors beyond just the idea. Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity beyond resources controlled.

 

What are the components needed to succeed in entrepreneurship?

Heart, head, hands, and home

Explanation

Entrepreneurial success requires the passion and inspiration (heart), knowledge of the process and how to get things done (head), taking action by interviewing customers, prototyping, selling, and more (hands), plus having the community of mentors and colleagues for moral support and advice (home).

 

What is the 80/20 rule applied to startups?

80% of the results come from 20% of the effort / tasks

Explanation

This rule applies across many aspects of business and life in general – 20% of customers typically supply 80% of the revenue / profits, 20% of the text of a book delivers 80% of the insights and lessons, and 20% of the effort and tasks that you can do for your startup will yield 80% of the results. The key to time management early in your company is to try to find these high impact tasks, and to avoid being a perfectionist about going for the remaining portion of the 100% results.

 

When should you seek investment?

Explanation

When you have proved yourself some in the market

A potential investor will ask for too much of your business if you go to him or her with just an idea or team. Even if you have a prototype, there is still lot of risk to the investor, since they are not yet sure if there is customer demand. The more risk you can remove for the investor, the better reception you will have. Think about it from their perspective – how much confidence is there that there is demand for this? That it will work? And that someone else could not do it just as easily?

 

What is a customer need?

Customers have a need if they are not currently being served well enough.

Explanation

Customers have a need if they are not currently being served well enough

 

What is a market gap?

Opportunities to appeal to new customers who aren’t currently being addressed

Explanation

Customers who aren’t currently being addressed are gaps. Recent developments are trends. Under-served customers represent needs.

 

What are the two main categories to filter and choose an idea?

Personal Fit and Market Potential correct

Explanation

The two key dimensions align with how investors assess a business – the entrepreneur themselves and how well suited they are for the business and market, or the fit (their passion, drive, skills, and experience in the field), and the market and business viability and value, or potential (the differentiation, traction, etc.).

 

Which is the preferred early market research method of the ones shown?

Interviews

Explanation

Interviews will give the most actionable insights, plus an understanding of the real needs and frustrations, assuming questions are structured in an open-ended way so as to not bias the interviewee.

Surveys cannot uncover needs or frustrations, since they will already have a hypothesis about the need to validate or not.

Google can be great for market sizing, but is not a means of validating needs and frustrations. The data is too general and often dated.

Focus groups are similar to interviews, but susceptible to group-think.

 

Which of the following is a good question to ask a potential customer during market research?

Can you walk me through your typical use of this product?

Explanation

Open-ended questions that allow the interviewee to share stories are best, since this opens the opportunity to then dig further as you learn more about different needs and frustrations that may be of interest.

The other questions are leading, biased, and difficult to evaluate.

 

What are the important considerations in choosing a target customer market?

Large need or frustration

High willingness to pay for a solution

Moderate size — focused but with large potential

All of the above

 

What is a Customer Persona?

One customer in your target market

A tool to ensure company alignment

A person you can call for input when making company decisions

All of the above

 

 

What is a Value Proposition statement?

It tells the proposed pricing of your product

It tells the specific benefit you can provide for your target customer, and how you will deliver it

It is a statement of how you will create value for your investors

All of the above

Explanation

The value proposition statement includes your specific customer, industry, promise of value, and strategy. It is your sales message of what you will do for your customer.

 

What is Entrepreneurial Strategy?

Your plan of creating and capturing value, and sustaining over time

Explanation

Strategy is how you capture and sustain value. All companies have some competition, since customers are solving the need in some way today, even if that is just the need to be entertained. Strategy goes beyond the idea and is about executing and commercializing that idea.

 

What is Competitive Advantage?

Better meeting the needs of the customer along their top priority

Explanation

A company should not seek to be better than competitors on ALL dimensions, since there will need to be trade-offs for the company to be sustainable over time. The key is to determine what matters most to the customers you are targeting and better meeting needs on those dimensions.

 

What is your MVP?

Minimum Viable Product

Explanation

MVP is commonly defined is the Minimum Viable Product, though we also sometimes refer to it as the Minimum Viable Proof — how you will initially prove your offering. This varies some depending on whether you are developing a product, service, or app.

 

How do you develop an MVP?

Sketching it to make sure everyone is aligned

Determining the few features that will most easily impact the customer needs

Isolating what assumptions are new and need to be tested

All of the above

Explanation

Ensuring alignment and keeping it simple are important

 

What is a method you can use to acquire customers when just starting your company?

Personal selling

Explanation           

Personal selling is a recommended strategy – pound the pavement – get out there and sell! The other listed strategies require existing customers to use, so cannot be part of your initial strategy. They are valuable later on, though, so being selective about the customers you target and about how to retain them is important.

 

Why is keeping customers important?

It is more expensive to find a new customer than to keep an existing one

Losing customers can cause a negative impact and work against you

They can provide positive reviews, referrals, and word of mouth

All the above

 

To whom might you give an elevator pitch?

Investors

Friends

Potential partners or suppliers

 

 

What important component do you need to include in your elevator pitch?

Your vision, introducing the company or framing the problem

Explanation

You must include the vision and introduction to the company and problem you are solving. The other components may or may not be relevant depending on the specifics of your business. Since an elevator pitch is short, you do not want to overwhelm your audience with information, so keep it simple, and focus on getting people interested versus telling them everything they may want to know.
