Disease of the century

Disease of the century

Sunday, 23 January 2022 | Pramod Pathak

If we ask somebody what is the disease of the present century the answer we are likely to get would be Covid-19.  How ironical and sad because the disease of the previous century also was something similar though it was called by a different name — Spanish flu. Two conclusions...

Happiness: A Vedantic view

Sunday, 22 December 2019 | Pramod Pathak

The word Vedanta means the “end of the Vedas”. In the literal sense this denotes the final knowledge or the ultimate Vidya. The Vedas are our oldest scriptural texts that have been claimed as the most ancient of the books of knowledge. These are compiled into four volumes, each having...

The strength of character

Sunday, 08 December 2019 | Pramod Pathak

There is an old saying: when wealth is lost nothing is lost; when health is lost something is lost; when character is lost everything is lost. The saying needs some elaboration as the context has changed. It was coined when wealth was not the be all and end all of...

A lesson in leadership

Sunday, 24 November 2019 | Pramod Pathak

Progress is the law of life; Man is not man yet. These famous words from Robert Browning once again stand vindicated as Kenya’s Kipchoge breaks the Marathon record by running 42.195 km in less than two hours. It was a good 75 years ago that Roger Banister had achieved something...

Sunday, 27 October 2019 | Pramod Pathak

As we celebrate Deepavali/Diwali, greetings and best wishes pour in as people exchange social pleasantries. However, there is a subtle but noticeable change in the way people do it now. The traditional expression was to wish a happy and prosperous Diwali. Slowly, there has been a change. A new kind...

The world of paranoia

Sunday, 13 October 2019 | Pramod Pathak

A popular acronym doing round these days about the kind of world we are living in is VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous). Whosoever coined this may not be credited with finding a path breaking idea as the world has always been like that. But the emphasis on volatility certainly...

Gandhi: The global icon

Sunday, 29 September 2019 | Pramod Pathak

India is celebrating 150th year of Gandhi. And rightly so. A fitting tribute to someone who is India’s biggest global icon, whether anybody likes it or not. When his birthday is recognised by The UN as a global affair, the man must be having something. It is important, therefore, to...
