This was the title of the talk given by Capt. Raghu Raman, CEO, Mahindra Special Services Group. You can see Capt. Raghu Raman’s brief profile here and here. I had heard that this was probably one of the best, most well-received and most inspirational talks of last year and after attending it, I would say that it is probably the best I have listened to, till now @ ISB. Capt. Raghu had served in the Siachen and was trying to take us through what leadership is really all about. After seeing clips and snaps of the situations that the Indian Army faces in Siachen, I would venture to say that most of the decision making problems we face in our lives are nothing in comparison. Will try to post more on this topic soon.
You can write in your appreciation of the efforts of the people posted in Siachen at the following address:

The semifinals and finals of the ultimate frisbee tournament were held on Friday and Saturday. My section (D) won the semifinals convincingly to stage a fight against Section C. The final ended in a draw (5-5). Couldn’t be there to cheer my section as I was running high fever. Somehow managed to pull myself together for Capt. Raghu Raman’s talk.
Time to sign off and complete as much of the assignments as possible before the effect of Crocin fades away. Its the mid-terms this Friday 😦
