Paradise of Competence

Lately a dear friend spoke of the legendary prayer that Shri Rabindranath Tagore gave this mighty nation on how it ought to actually be.. and wondered could we relate to such an expectation from the corporate world. What could perhaps detail out the utopia here? And that set my mind on fire and I here have voiced out for the millions of us who get up every morning and convert our capabilities into delivered competencies. Our dream of the corporate paradise…

Where talent works without fear and delivered capabilities are held high

Where voice of reason is free

Where the organisations aren’t broken up into silos of predilections espousing sycophancy

Where actions only come out from the depths of competence & values

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards collective goals

Where the budding rivulets of excellence are not devoured by the wretched swamps of apathetic cultures

Where the mind is led forward by leaders who first demonstrate steely will to walk their asks

Where padrones aren’t allowed to make pariahs of the capables by punitive practices

Where meritocracy isn’t decapitated by the gigantic guillotines commandeered by reprobates

Where excellence is a way of life and not a boardroom sermons of logic

Where transparency & care aren’t embellishments on the sepulchres of the intimidated souls of their meritorious

Into that paradise of excellence, my God, let my competencies be employed.

    And, there, doesn’t exist one! 🙂
