Within an hour I’ll reach to Delhi and visit Goonj. Its very foggy and deadly cold here. Till today tour was quiet interesting but sometimes I was getting bored with cont. injections of social entrepreneurship. One more thing which I didn’t like here is many Yatris are trying to pretend that they have done something greatly, something different. All show off. People speak in English all the time unnecessarily…I really feel pity for such poor fellows. 🙂
Some of the stops of TJY are really nice. I was amazed after watching the world created by Dr. V (Arvind eye care). There I read a wonderful thought by Dr.V – “Intelligent and capabilities are not enough. There must be the joy of doing something beautiful”. Visiting ISB, Hyderabad campus was one more thing which I cant forget to tell you. Its really huge and wonderful, I am in love with the campus of ISB. CNBC panel discussion on funding entrepreneurs (at ISB) was damn good. It has cleared many misconceptions about start ups and VCs.
The model of Gram Vikas (Joe Mediath) and Kuthambakam village (Elango) are quiet similar to Ralegan Siddhi of Anna Hazare. Elango himself told that he is inspired from Anna Hazare. But their dedication to work and hardwork to transform drams into reality should be appreciated.
Tata Steel, Jamshedpur is a true symbol of strength and power. We have just went through the plant by Bus, didn’t get to see it properly. Tatas have really contributed a lot to nation. Almost 60% of their profit goes for some productive work. Then we have enjoyed cultural program at Jubilee Park. A professional group entertained us with some popular dances of India. But watching Lawni on the lawns of park was real fun…
