I take decisions and then make them right." -Ratan Tata *More Quotes @ G (For entrepreneurs, some decisions can make or break anything. Ratan Tata firmly believes that sometimes you have to make the decisions and prove them right rather than taking the right decisions. Entrepreneurs and innovators are questioned every time they wish to venture into a new zone and a lot of people stress the importance of taking the 'right decisions'. However, sometimes the best way is to make a decision and then work to make it right. ) If still in doubt, access and listen to/watch this interview: https://yourstory-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/yourstory.com/2019/12/exclusive-ratan-tata-interview-life-dreams-equal-opportunity-india/amp?amp_gsa=1&_js_v=a6&usqp=mq331AQHKAFQArABIA%3D%3D#amp_ct=1606716910926&_tf=From%20%251%24s&aoh=16067168308585&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&share=https%3A%2F%2Fyourstory.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fexclusive-ratan-tata-interview-life-dreams-equal-opportunity-india A Interaction 1) V T Panchapagesan, Chennai Man is God’s masterpiece. Father and Son- A study worth knowing.. A young boy after seeing Mt. Everest with a frightened expression on his face said that he felt funny looking at the mountain that he was too small thinking the world is too big making me tiny..... Father explained to his son that he was yet a boy only. But, when he grows up he will be greater than this mountain as he will be knowing his existence as he has got a SOUL.... YES, God gave man free will, to accept or reject him...... But not without having to answer for his action. He made man free so that he might have the glory and the merit of freely choosing what is right..... As the illuminating sun shines upon all regions, above, below, and across, similarly, one God, glorious, adorable, rules over whatever creatures are born from womb, who by themselves possess the nature of a cause. Svetasvatara Upanishad..5-4 Be Well, V. T. Panchapagesan (Collage adds: Swetaswatara Upanishad Chapter V: https://www.esamskriti.com/e/Spirituality/Upanishads-Commentary/Svetasvatara-Upanishad-~-Chap-5-The-One-Immanent-God-1.aspx) 2) C V Subbaraman, Mysuru "Blogs and links from The Hindu are available only for subscribers. I am not one. Subbaraman" (As I am not getting print edition of newspapers, I've subscribed for Hindu Group online editions for one year. I occasionally access Frontline, Business Line and The Hindu. My understanding is that The Hindu allows free access of 10 or 20 articles a month for non-subscribers-Warrier) B Book Review: Wit and Wisdom of Ratan Tata https://vidhyathakkar.com/bookreviewthewitandwisdomofratantatareviewbyvidhyatthakkar/ C Tata Administrative Service https://www.tata.com/careers/programs/tas D Readers Write V Babusenan, Thiruvananthapuram Repartee The word 'repartee' had a French origin. It must be so because the French were once great conversationalists. The word stands for immediate and mostly witty response. It is like throwing a ball on a wall which rebounds. The thrower may catch it and be happy or it may hit him fully on his face. The word recalls to one's mind the famous trial in history known as the impeachment of Warren Hastings, the first Governor General of Bengal, in the last lap of the 18th century. The British Parliament was fully packed. The impeachment was led by the reputed Edmund Burke who took four days to narrate the misdeeds of Warren Hastings. During the course of his eloquent speech, there were uproars in the house and the Hon Speaker found it extremely difficult to control the proceedings. Once, using the hammer, he shouted: ''Order, Order". Almost immediately came the repartee from Burke: "Order, Order, my Lord, when the order of India is out of order." Repartees are mostly verbal. They may be in writing too. Here is one example of the latter: Bernard Shaw did not like Winston Churchill. It was a question of mutual dislike. Connected with the opening show of one of his plays, Shaw sent an invitation to Churchill like this: "I am reserving two tickets for you for my premiere. Come and bring a friend-if you have one." Pat came the reply: "Impossible to be present for the first performance. Will attend the second-if there is one." More well-known is Churchill's repartee to Lady Astor, Britain's first female MP. Once in utter exasperation she said: "If I were married to you, I would put poison in your coffee." The response came thus: "If you were my wife, I would drink it." In the House of Commons, a Whig MP stood up during the course of a heated debate and, pointing a finger at the Tory Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeili, roared: "Your end will be at the gallows or on account of a horribly nasty disease." The PM coolly replied : "Yes, it depends on whether I embrace your policy or your mistress." The White House is not devoid of repartee. Once a Senator, who was very close to Lincoln and who was free to enter the White House at any time, was flabbergasted when he saw Lincoln vigorously polishing his shoes. He cried out: "What is this, Mr.President? You are polishing your shoes!" Lincoln smiled and said: "Yes, I am polishing my shoes. Whose shoes do you polish?" Then both of them laughed together. E.

Maybe only when they're egg-cited. An invisible man married an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at, you see. I didn’t think the chiropractor would improve my posture. But I stand corrected. I took my new girlfriend out on our first date to the ice rink, and entry was half price. She called me a cheap skate. Studies show cows produce more milk when the farmer talks to them. It’s a case of in one ear and out the udder. I used to date a girl with one leg who worked at a brewery. She was in charge of the hops. My cross-eyed wife and I just got a divorce. I found out she was seeing someone on the side. My wife claims I’m the cheapest person she’s ever met. I’m not buying it. Did you know that a raven has 17 rigid feathers called pinions, while a crow has only 16. The difference between a raven and a crow is just a matter of a pinion. I told my carpenter I didn’t want carpeted steps. He gave me a blank stair. What did the surgeon say to the patient who insisted on closing up his own incision?
