Emerging India’s bright future

Today, I got a speech from very kind and witty ambassador of India, Vishnu Prakash. He asked whether we know story of Kim-Suro to explain how we deeply connected to each other. Following the story of Samguk Yusa, Indian princess Suriratna came to Korea in 48 AD, married King Kim-Suro and became queen Huh Hwang-ok. So that 5 million Koreans trace their ancestry to the royal couple. This story represents that there is deep historical links between Korea and India from long time ago. In the another story, Korea Buddhist monk Hye-cho visited India from 723 to 239 AD and wrote the travelogue, “Pilgrimage to the five kingdoms of India” which shows a vivid explanation of Indian culture, politics and society. Thus, even though two countries are far from each other but there are various connections between the two. The ambassador explained about characteristics of India. First of all, India has many races among its population like the picture of people he showed us. India also is rounded by many countries such as Indonesia, Pakistan and Nepal etc., These facts have affected to India’s cultures and policies. In the last two decades, Asia has been under huge transition in politic, economic as well as social ways. Now, people are predicting that in next 20 years the global centre of economic gravity might shift to Asia, especially East Asia. In this context, combined national wealth of China, Japan, Korea and India as well as ASEAN countries would exceed that of the US and EU. It means that Indian’s destiny in the future is related to East Asia. India has a potential as it described as emerging market nation, middle power, regional power as well as emerging power. India has a high potential of economic growth and actually has grown so far. When we look through detail of India, we see that why India will…...

Red from Green - Essay

...Red from Green It’s not easy growing up. Finding out who you are and discovering the hard truths about life. Inevitably we will all have to someday be able to stand on our own two feet, while in the process discovering things about ourselves such as our sexuality and where we want to head in life. In the short story “Red from Green” by Maile Meloy, It is at this crossroad that our protagonist, Sam, finds herself. She is forced to see herself and her father in a new light following a float trip where a grown man shows an interest in her. “Red from Green” is narrated from a third person perspective, and from Sam’s perspective. Sam is a 15-year old American teenager from Montana who is about to start her sophomore year. Because Sam’s mother died she lives alone with her father which has created a strong bond between them. Therefore they did not like to talk much about the fact that Sam had been offered a scholarship to a boarding school. She had not decided to take it yet and she was unsure how her father felt about it, “Applying had been her father’s idea, but now he looked dismayed every time the subject came up” (p. 1, l. 6-7). Sam and her father had been on this kind of float trip many times before, although this time her uncle and his client joined them. She thought the purpose of the trip might in fact be to gain the goodwill of this new client, “…it was the feeling she got - that they were going for the client” (p. 1, l. 15). The client, Layton, very quickly made an......

Learn from Mistake

...Learn From Your Mistakes Mistakes are unavoidable in life and leaders certainly make their share of them.  Any time you look to break new ground or technologies or whatever it is you are leading, you open up many new avenues for mistakes and they are inevitable with change. You can’t have one without the other and so learning to use mistakes well is an important leadership trait.  The first point about mistakes is that a great leader learns from their own mistakes.  They know when they make it and will quickly look at what can be salvaged or gained from the mistake as to avoid it in the future or to streamline some action or process to improve it next time.  This makes no difference if the mistake is big or small, there is always something to be learned from it and mistakes offer an immediate piece of feedback to anyone who is wise enough to learn from it. Mistakes are the usual bridge between inexperience and wisdom. (Phyllis Therous) Another point of learning from mistakes is to also be a leader in this area and actually admit your own mistakes.  Admit when you were wrong, and emphasize what you have learned from it and what your next steps are work around that mishap.  If you encourage and set the example of owning up to mistakes quickly and working past them, you can quickly inspire your followers to do the same and look at the value of the mistakes instead of hiding from them. Leave Room for Mistakes to Happen If you have done the first part and owned up and......

From W.S.

...The analysis of the story: From W.S. by L.P. Hartley Leslie Poles Hartley (1895—1972), the son of a solicitor, was educated at Harrow and Balliol College, Oxford and for more than twenty years from 1932 was a fiction reviewer for such periodicals as the Spectator, Sketch, Observer and Time and Tide. He published his first book, a collection of short stories entitled "Night Fears" in 1924. His novel "Eustace and Hilda" (1947) was recognized immediately as a major contribution to English fiction; "The Go-Between" (1953) and "The Hireling" (1957) were later made into internationally successful films. In 1967 he published "The Novelist's Responsibility", a collection of critical essays. L.P. Hartley was a highly skilled narrator and all his tales are admirably told. "W.S." comes from "The Complete Short Stories of L.P. Hartley" published posthumously in 1973. At the beginning of the story the author introduces the main character of it who is Walter Streeter. The first postcard he receives is from Forfar and is anonymous. Usually he answers to the letters but this one didn’t have any address so Walter was relieved that he doesn’t need to answer to it. The photograph of Forfar was uninteresting and he tore it up. About ten days later, Walter receives another postcard, but this time it was from Berwick –on –Tweed. After reading the second letter Walter began to wonder if the sender was a woman or a man. After some time he dismissed the stirrings of curiosity that...

Differences Between Wine from Burgundy and That from Bordeaux

...Differences between Wine from Burgundy and that from Bordeaux These two types of wine come from France. Red wines are very popular in European countries. In the article “History of Red Wine”, Coffey discuss the history of Red Wine. In the early decades, European explorers travel around the World with their own wine because they really love red wine. Since then, the history of red wine infiltrates the history of many European countries. Today, red wines are worth in its healthiness and popularity that brings to us. In 6000BC places between Europe and Asia, are famous for the production of red wine. Grapes that used to make red wines are brewed by Egyptians and Romans and make their wine to 25 years old. The wines are shipped from the Bordeaux regions to the United Kingdom. Most of the wines made in Bordeaux are shipped to United Kingdom. Therefore, merchants from England, France and German take control of the production of red wine in the 17th century. (Coffey 2011) There are eight major types of red wine and those are Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet sauvignon, Malbec, Pinot noir, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and Barbera. Among those eight, Merlot is the most popular. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot comes from Bordeaux. Bordeaux is located in the Gironde on the Southwest France coast. Two river the Garonne and the Dordogne hit the north of Bordeaux. Let’s discuss Bordeaux first. When discussing about Bordeaux, I may have to tell a story about this red wine. In Ancient Rome, Julius......

...energy spent is a primary reason for obesity. Moreover, there are other causes of obesity such as direct food marketing and soft drinks in America and in Canada. In India, where obesity ranked the second, people who are obese are three times higher in urban areas than in rural. For instance, in Punjab, obesity rate for men is 30.3% , while for women is 37.5; however, in Gujarat, obesity rate for men is 15.4% , whereas for women is 17.7% ( National Family Health Survey 2007 quoted in Kalra and Unnikrishnan 2012). Chapman (2008 quoted in Victor 2010, 143) stated that in England 29% of older adults are obese; in addition, 43% of Aussie were overweight, and 24 were obese. This essay will examine three reasons of increasing obesity that result from lifestyle changes which are calorie consumption, ceasing of smoking habit, and physical inactivity. A majority of the World population lives with healthy lifestyle, but people gradually change it and that impact on increasing of obesity. One of the lifestyle changes is calorie consumption which leads to obesity and accounts for weight gain, because it tends to encourage positive energy balance (energy output that is less than energy consumption and results in increased body weight). Pereira et al.(2005) expresses that fast food contains substantial amount of highly purified starchy food and added carbohydrates, sugar that have been characterized as high in glycaemic index (a measurement carried out carbohydrate-containing......

From the Heart

...From the Heart: Healthcare Transformation from India to the Cayman Islands From the Heart: Healthcare Transformation from India to the Cayman Islands My immediate thoughts as I began to watch the movie, From the Heart: Healthcare Transformation from India to the Cayman Islands (Horstmeier, 2014), took me back to the time I spent in the hospital for my first born. My daughter was born with a birth defect and lived at University of North Carolina hospital until she passed away at five months old. I was not given a bill and forced to make an unethical decision like many parents around the world before she received any treatment or any of the five surgeries. After she passed away we received a bill for a half a million dollars. This bill was sent to me by mistake and was soon covered entirely by my insurance company. While losing my daughter was heartbreaking, I know that I am blessed. I was blessed to have insurance that covered the bill. The thought of paying for such a large expense and not even having my daughter is unfathomable, but yet this is the case for many parents who are faced with enormous healthcare expenses. The Impact of High Cost Many parents are faced with the inability to pay for critical heart surgeries. The video From the Heart: Healthcare Transformation from India to the Cayman Islands (Horstmeier, 2014), shows the extreme problem with healthcare systems around the world, and the changes Health City is making to the systems in India and......

...Bad & Good Effects of Computer Games on Students By Holly Smith eHow Contributor Child playing computer image by Ilya Postnikov from Fotolia.com Students these days are spending more of their free time playing computer games. There are positive and negative effects associated with playing video games. Set a regular routine for your child so he knows when it is time to do homework and when to play games. Health Problems Some students get carried away with playing their computer games for excessive amounts of time. Your child’s health might be affected negatively if he plays computer games persistently. His eye sight might get worse because he is constantly staring at the computer. Since your child sits in one position while playing computer games, he may be at risk of gaining extra weight due to lack of daily exercise. Encourage your child to play outside or get other physical fitness so she plays computer games for a limited amount of time. Lack of Social Skills If students are spending too much time playing computer games, they may not be getting enough social interaction at home. Students should have proper communication skills so they can interact with teachers and classmates while at school. Good social skills will help your kid feel healthy and happy at school -- and can possibly boost his interest in school work. Limit the time your child spends on computer games. Be interactive; play board games that can boost your child’s social skills. Intelligence......

It from India

...IT from India’ to 'IT for India' Bottom of Form India has come a long way as a supplier of IT services to the world. Analysts say that India has revolutionized the services sector the same way as Japan changed the manufacturing sector. But, Indian IT sector has mainly catered to a global market, and very little was done for the local market in India in the past. India presents a very large untapped market in terms of technology adoption and usage. The scope of technology development for India as a market is at a position when the world was some 15 years ago. The major advantage is that India can start implementing technology from the point where the rest of the world is right now. It can leapfrog ahead of the rest of the world with very little legacy technology to cope with. Indian Market-India should be considered not as a country but as another world in itself. People have committed the mistake of considering it as a single big unit of similar attributes and needs or in other cases, seen little value in understanding the diversity of the country. They concentrated more on the well-off English speaking crowd of the country and never seen any true value in tapping the regional segments. FMCG, Education, Entertainment almost everyone else except IT has understood the value of tapping into the regional segments. This can be mainly attributed to the fact that IT was never meant for the Indian market. While other industries aimed to cater to local demand, IT was basically......

Away from Home, Far from the Same

...Joseph Donnelly and Shannon Christie come from two very different worlds. Joseph lives on a farm and is barely making enough money to pay the rent, where Shannon lives on acres of land with horses to ride and butlers to boss around. As it turns out, Shannon’s father is the landlord of the land Joseph and his family lives on. When they are evicted Joseph goes to the Christie house declaring revenge on them. This is where he meets Shannon. She tells him that she is not going to end up like her mother and that she is going to America for the free land they have. This captures Joseph’s attention. Since Joseph is poor, Shannon pays for his boat ticket but makes him her serving boy during the trip. Once they land in Boston, Shannon’s silver is stolen, the only form of money she has. This forces the pair to find jobs. For Shannon this is harder than it is for Joseph. Most of the movie is set in Boston developing the characters and slowly transforming them before they go west. Far and Away shows how the west purifies and transforms people in order to achieve the opportunities it has to offer. Through the entirety of the film the characters’ class status, attitudes, style and surroundings change as they get closer to the west. By the time they get there the movie is ending and the characters have done a 360 degree transformation. Shannon gets her silver stolen as soon as she gets off the boat in Boston which initiates her transformation. She went from having money and the ability to......

From the Balcony

...From the Balcony to the Dance Floor James “Dennis” Warman Leadership in the 21st Century LED 603 May 29, 2015 Instructor: Dr. Ellen Kaye I really desire to put into practice what I have learned from Leadership in the 21st Century college course. I have a deep desire for my organization to become a true learning organization. The irony to my desire is that my organization is involved in education of children kindergarten through twelfth grade. I have set up learning environments in my organization, but not based on the art and practice of learning organizations. The trainings were designed to meet an immediate need based on a lack of knowledge or experience. Currently, we have five different levels of training based on time on the job or position. Peter Senge, in an obscure little sentence in his book, says, “ To be a true teacher, you must be a learner first” (Senge, 1990. 2006, p. 332). He adds that the teacher’s passion for learning inspires their students. He further insists that managers, which I will translate to organizational leaders, must commit to be practitioners, not just “advocates” or preachers. My goal therefore is to use the theory from Peter Senge and apply it to my organization. The challenge is to take the theory and put into practice. Senge’s five key disciplines are mental models, shared vision, team learning, personal mastery, and systems thinking. Senge believes that the five disciplines converge to create new waves......

Motivation to Refrain from Drugs

...Motivation for Refraining from Drugs Cindy Torres Psy/355 Monday, June 4, 2012 Julie Fenyk Motivation for Refraining from Drugs There are several things that influence brain structures and functions associated with the motivation to refrain from the use of drugs. Important factors are intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, heredity and the environment. Motivation can be challenging. In order for a person to change their behavior, an individual’s internal point of view and external forces must be considered. Environmental and biological factors play a role in a person’s desire to refrain from the use of drugs. However, brain structures and functions of the brain related to motivation play a bigger role in the ability to do so. Brain Structures and Functions The Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines addictions as a “compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; persistence compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful.” The human brain releases chemicals called neurotransmitters when we feel pain or pleasure. For example, a person touches a hot stove and immediately our brain registers the pain and tells us to remove our hand. This is a survival mechanism. Not only does pain cause us to react, but the neurotransmitters released also serve to reinforce this behavior whenever we react by avoiding it (painful stimulus). Our brain forms a neural pathway......
