A majority of the men do find it very hard to cope up with strong, assertive, talented women at their workplace. They seem to them as domain intruders in the corridors of work, foreign bodies in the system of life and an invader of their own territory.There is a fine line between strong willed and bossy, arrogant, self-centered, and controlling. A man or a woman does want to necessarily control or dominate, but neither does he/she want to be controlled and dominated.
Life's biggest challenge is deciding what's important - then disregarding the rest.
Life in Dentistry is not all despair; there is a hilarious side to it too! I got to witness it during this week end.To break the tedium of people’s daily struggle to survive, in the mayhem that prevails in the absence of anything resembling governance, there are entertaining, almost comical, distractions provided by the architects of professional despair – the aspiring honchos of certain specialties or may I refer to them as “Chief”...or even better “Big Chief”
Corruption is so well prevalent in this world that it has become a tool for people to be ahead of others using short cut methods. The science of Psychology states that every person wants to be ahead of the other by using any means. To get anything done in this world without sweat u need to pay a bribe or else wait in the queue which never ends.
Education is a crutch with which the foolish attack the wise to prove that they are not idiots…said Karl Kraus…People find it more convenient to bribe and lament later than to fight it out then and there!
The Reality is that a person in position becomes wealthy. He becomes powerful and no body questions how he has earned that wealth. He is capable of destroying any one coming on his way…and I for one have been a victim to this “removing anyone coming his way” remedy!
What strikes one, is how the people have become immune to corruption. Are their skins so thick? Are their consciences so dulled and dead? Fraternity in fact becomes the best advocates for the corrupt! Why for heavens sake can’t the members choose a capable leader?..and not just a temporarily preferred choice?
What comes first-the calibre,speciality/science or the merely a position offered by a scientific society? Just a measly dinner (of course with unlimited intoxicants and financial aid demanded from investors) or even an authoritative phone call from a past “guru” would influence us to exercise a CHOICE which could be based on competence rather than obligation?The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voters said Winston Churchill…how true!
The biggest blow to the scientific credibility (if it has any left) is the appointment of a moron of the lowest order, who is already an active member of a blemished body as Chef de Mission! This surely goes to prove that nothing limits achievement like small thinking!
Gosh!… Till death do us part…
Maybe some colleagues may opine it is again democratic decency to accept the verdict of a registered society.. .As though there were none with an unblemished record!..This goes to prove that as far as balloting is concerned it follows no moral values and probity in it’s choices but has only its own vested interest! To safeguard its own omissions it has handpicked some people and placed them in constitutionally deemed highest posts.
It is ridiculous for members to not empower themselves with the knowledge required to exercise their ballots in a fair and just manner. Maybe some of our predecessors had also resorted to nepotism but, what I saw is nothing which feels short of a mind bogging SCAM!
Two wrongs will not make a right! How can one compare a robber and a terrorist? I surely see that there is an indication of righting the wrong. One the one hand you have a dynamic visibly competent potential leader and the other hand a dullard who has absolutely no track record whatsoever!...have educated and experienced people turned so myopic?
One of our biggest drawbacks is that we do not take responsibility for anything. If the nation is corrupt government is to blame. If the society is corrupt surely not my problem. This denial precludes any improvement in our society. Are we actually expecting someone to come from outside or even an incarnation to get the society rid of these vices?
We have to act in our own small ways if things are to improve, otherwise time is not far that we will be the most corrupt in the world. second issue is our own conceptualization and perception of corruption, that is why many feel stealing from the government is OK, Or I just picked up a little(lesser in degree) , or everyone does this so it is expectable. This tendency to justify personal shortcomings and blatant thefts leads to this culture of corruption. It cannot be relative, cannot be in terms of degree of corruption, as small events breed tendency for more corruption.
I pity all the members who have helped dentand denigrate the highest constitutional post! How literal could “dentists” get!
Now to tackle corruption - where do we start and how?
Only solution would be becoming a “Rambo” or the "Indian" or "Wednesday" movie way. That would be 100% remedy .I don’t see any other solution. If anyone can give an alternate solution, I would love to hear it as I have been thinking about this for years together!
The duds in power must realize that this profession is not one of nincompoops and zombies. We are professionals capable with tremendous common sense and are highly intelligent scientifically and socially. They cannot try and play the ‘God Father’ story or “The D company” story in India. In my opinion they cannot take us for a ride all the time. There is a limit to tolerance.
When it was the entire King’s men story with the regulatory cartel I knew we had thrown all Ethics to the winds of so called democracy. Having gained majority by mere numbers by tokenism and offering silly favors and promises surely do not mean the Chair has the vote of the people. This is going to be the moron’s biggest liability when a healthy society soon realizes that those who did not understand an iota of democracy, handpicked the Chief!...merely by numbers!!!...just for a few favors more!
This currently elected Chief is so capable that he would never be heard until he farts!...of course quite a coat hanger too!....atypical case of Big shit No Chief!
Till death do us part!!!...some morons are married to TITLES!
Leadership in my opinion is not a one-day thing. It is a constant commitment to excellence, a habit . . . a daily practice……
