Nischint was a maverick boy, always involved in doing something new. But, he often did not persist with an idea too long. He would be satisfied with a sub-optimal solution too soon and then move to another idea. His teacher and also the hostel warden, were not very happy with this habit of his. His teacher realised that if Nischint continued with this jugaad mentality of getting around the problem rather getting over them, he will never be able to make a breakthrough. read more

No matter how vulnerable one is, one often searches for a more vulnerable person to blame for one's own inadequacies. Given the economic stress, many small entrepreneurs face enormous challenges in the market place. It is not easy to get payment on time for supplies made. In the light of everrising expectations of the clients, the quality control also requires considerable attention. Some of the problems are inherent in the processes and materials used for manufacturing different devices or components. In various meetings, it was common to hear small entrepreneurs blaming workers for leaving for better pastures after they were trained. It was alleged that they did not work hard, they were unwilling to learn and so on. It seemed that a large number of problems of small enterprises owed their origin to the rising aspirations of the workers and inability or the unwillingness of the entrepreneurs to meet those. read more

Once we approach the summer, cool breeze will set in. The moist breeze compels the male weaver birds to build compels the male weaver birds to build nests over wells and in the branches of dry tall trees, like the goddess Durga, the female weaver bird will come and inspect the nest; if not to her taste, she will destroy it and the male bird has to build the nest all over again. No matter how many colours he adoms himself with to lure her to his nest, it is not just his dress that she pays attention to. read more

\"Why do some trees disappear?” Sonam asked his teacher. It was a beautiful, sunny morning and the teacher had taken the class to a monastery. His students were not surprised because the teacher would often take them out for a walk in the woods or along the river. This morning, the teacher had given them a giant task. He had asked them to bring their foot rulers and measure the length and breadth of the monastery. It was just a few more metres away, on the top of the mountain. The children ran towards the walls of the building and all of them started measuring from different ends. read more
