Professor M.S.Rao’s Republic Day Message — India is a Land Where Dreams Become Realities




“Let new India arise out of peasants cottage, grasping the plough, out of huts, cobbler and sweeper.” — Swami Vivekananda


Indians celebrate Republic Day on 26th January every year as the Constitution of India came into force on this day in 1950.  Here are some areas we must consider improving to build a strong and prosperous country.

Education: We must emphasize making Indian education system practical. Currently it is following rote learning and producing educated illiterates. We must emphasize more on employability than employment. Employability is about upgrading skills, abilities and knowledge constantly to stay relevant as per the current times. It is to learn, unlearn and relearn regularly. Employment is the ability to grab jobs. Due to rapid growth in technology, the skills and abilities are getting irrelevant quickly. Hence, we must learn constantly. Additionally, there is no permanent employment, but only permanent employability in the world. Education must open the window to the outside world. It must make people understand what is just and right. It must help them realize their hidden potential to add value to them and society.  
Economy: Indian economy is not growing rapidly. We must utilize our natural and human resources to ensure rapid progress to build a strong economy. India is still a developing nation in spite of achieving independence almost seven decades ago. There are four countries — BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) that have potential grow globally. India is blessed with the young population in the world. Hence, it is time for all Indians to work hard and smart to leverage the youth to build a strong economy.
Environment: We must stress on ecology to build a clean and healthy environment. We must protect our mother earth by taking environment-friendly measures to ensure better civilization.  
Empowerment: To achieve rapid economic growth, empower people with right tools and techniques. Emphasize on women empowerment to take country forward rapidly. Remember, no society can grow without the active participation and support of women.
Ethics: We must emphasize more on means than ends. We must achieve success with integrity. We must emphasize on spiritual values rather than on materialistic ones.


Conclusion

“Toleration and liberty are the foundations of a great republic.” — Frank Lloyd Wright

India is a land of dreams where dreams become realities. We must be proud to be born in a country where a Sikh can become the Prime Minister. We must be proud to be born in a country where a Muslim can become the President. We must be proud to be born in a country where a woman can become the Prime Minister. We must be proud to be born in a country where a woman can become the President. We must be proud to be born in a country where a tea seller can become the Prime Minister. India offers equal opportunities to all Indians irrespective of gender, region, religion, race, ethnicity, language and community. That is the greatness of India!  We must be proud of being Indians first and last. Above all, we must be proud to be born as Indians. Jai Hind!


“We are Indians, firstly and lastly.” — B. R. Ambedkar

“Leadership Lessons from Chiranjeevi, India’s Megastar” ―Professor M.S.Rao





Happy Sankranti and Pongal!

“Many think that the mark of a great champion is the nature and margin of their victories and the peaks they scale and reach. That’s only part of it. The mark of the greatest of champions is how they react and respond to defeat. That is when they become enshrined in our hearts and minds – as they rise again and into the immortal pages of history.” ― Rasheed Ogunlaru


India’s megastar, Chiranjeevi is back to Tollywood after a gap of almost a decade. It is a matter of excitement for Telugu people across the world. There were whispers within the political and film industry that Chiranjeevi was finished forever. Several people in politics and film industry openly criticized for his failures. Some critics went to the extent of hitting him below the belt. They failed to recognize that immortality lies in his name. Of course, Chiranjeevi never reacts but only acts and responds positively to criticism. In fact, every leader has his ups and downs, and Chiranjeevi is no exception.  

Now the boss is back (Chiranjeevi) to the Tollywood, people celebrated his 150th film ‘Khaidi No. 150’ with excitement. His fans across the world including in USA have conducted car rallies and went to cinema halls to enjoy his film. Because of his film, the festival of Sankranthi has started on 11th January 2017 itself. This massive hit is possible because entire team of the movie worked voluntarily very hard not for remuneration but to see the megastar back on the screen again as a number one hero. What goes around comes around. Chiranjeevi helped many people in the film industry, and that has paid him rich dividends now.  


Chiranjeevi ― A Self-Made Man

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing.” ― Pele

Chiranjeevi is a self-made actor who rose from ranks without anybody’s support. He is a role model for achievers and aspiring actors for his hard work, discipline and dedication. He voluntarily gave up film career and floated Praja Rajyam Party to bring social justice. His party’s merger into Congress Party was not appreciated by many people. It adversely affected his image and cost his political career. Currently he is in political hibernation. He underwent several failures and insults for the last eight years. It has made him as a stronger person and a better leader. For Chiranjeevi, failure is only a comma, not a full stop. He is a continuous learner, and has the great habit of learning lessons from failures and moving forward with energy and enthusiasm.

After he left the film industry several stars surfaced. Thanks to Chiranjeevi for creating vacuum in the Telugu film industry and paving the way for many actors including Pawan Kalayan to become stars! Now the boss is back with a bang!


Leadership Lessons from Chiranjeevi

“Embrace failure. Missteps and roadblocks are inevitable but are ultimately an opportunity to learn, pivot, and go after your goals with new perspective.” ― Jenny Fleiss

Several analysts fail to understand how Chiranjeevi rose like Phoenix. The fact is that Telugu audiences are always loyal to their heroes irrespective of the films’ outcome. That is the strength for Chiranjeevi! Here are some leadership lessons to learn from him.
  • Age is not a deterrent. Age is not an obstacle to pursue your passions and accomplish your goals and objectives. When your passion is strong, you can start your life at any age.  
  • Failure is only a comma, not a full stop. Everyone fails at some time in life. In fact, failure teaches many lessons for the people if they are willing to learn lessons to grow as better human beings. Remember, tumble makes people humble. Ben Stein once remarked, “It is inevitable that some defeat will enter even the most victorious life. The human spirit is never finished when it is defeated…it is finished when it surrenders.”
  • Hard work pays. Although Chiranjeevi had rich experience in acting, he didn’t take it for granted. He worked very hard for his 150th film to come to a shape and improve his body language to suit to the audiences.
  • Connects with common man. Chiranjeevi knows how to connect with the common man with his simple dialogues rather than with lengthy dialogues that confuse the audiences.
  • Promises less but delivers more. He is a man of a few words. He stands by his commitment. He believes in hope, not hype.
  • Show the way for others. Chiranjeevi showed the way for other Telugu heroes including Pawan Kalayan, Allu Arjun, Ram Charan, Varun Tej, Sai Dharam Tej, and Allu Sirish.  If there were no Chiranjeevi, there would not have been these heroes.

Chiranjeevi is the least controversial leader. Some individuals make irresponsible statements to draw the attention of the people, or to kick up controversies to be in the limelight. Chiranjeevi doesn’t believe in such cheap tricks and gimmicks.  

Chiranjeevi is a transformed man. Now he knows who are his real friends and foes. He should avail this new platform to do his best as a film star and politician. Chiranjeevi is an ideal example for others that everything is possible in the world. Tough times don’t last but tough leaders like Chiranjeevi do last.


A Sweet Warning to Chiranjeevi!

Telugu people don’t let down their leaders. They have big hearts to forgive their leaders for the mistakes, and offer further opportunities. Hence, Chiranjeevi must learn lessons, reform and work for people. He must keep others’ interests above his own interests.

Chiranjeevi must be careful about the enemies within and outside and take precautions. He must remember the people who betrayed him for the last eight years and take appropriate steps accordingly to avoid further disasters. Above all, he must remember that people are Gods because they decide the fate of the actors and leaders. He must reinvent to entertain audiences, and evolve as a better leader to serve people. Jai Hind!


“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” ― Nelson Mandela

The Power of Ideas to Achieve Entrepreneurial Success!



“There Is One Thing Stronger Than All The Armies In The World, And That Is An Idea Whose Time Has Come.” ― Victor Hugo


Some people complain lack of resources and opportunities to accomplish their ambitions. They complain their circumstances and the people around them for their challenges and failures. On the other hand, the extraordinary achievers explore ideas to overcome their challenges and achieve success. They are rare breeds who don’t invent excuses to overcome their challenges.


Ideas versus Resources

Ideas are more important than the resources. When you have ideas, you will find opportunities and develop the mindset to raise resources. When humans undergo challenges their real strength surfaces and they unlock their hidden potential. Challenges lead to creativity paving the way for innovative solutions. The most inventions occurred during the global crises and challenges. During The Great Depression, several global companies were founded. During the Second World War, atom bomb was invented. True leaders run behind ideas, explore opportunities and raise resources instead of running helter and shelter during crises.  


Technology is an Advantage for Entrepreneurs

Technology has become a boon for entrepreneurs. With amazing ideas and without any capital, entrepreneurs are starting their businesses globally. There are several companies that grew with less capital and human resources. For instance, Whatsapp has a few employees; Google doesn’t own content; and Uber runs business through ideas, not by owning cars. It is obvious from these inspiring examples that ideas are more important than anything else in the world. When entrepreneurs have ideas and audacious vision, they can accomplish their goals and objectives effectively.


Ideas Lead to Success

Ideas lead to success as they serve as seeds to development and growth. It is essential to capture the ideas whenever they pop up in your mind. It is advisable to record them in your journal to reflect during your leisure time. It is from these ideas the civilization has advanced. And civilization will go to the next higher level. I get lots of ideas to author books. Whenever ideas pop up in my mind I scribble them immediately in my journal that I always carry with me. I develop them during my leisure time. It is from these ideas I could author 36 leadership books including the bestselling ‘21 Success Sutras for CEOs’ https://lnkd.in/eqwk9uZ.


Opportunities are Infinite while Your Life is Finite

Currently there are immense opportunities for the individuals with ideas and ambitions. Only thing they must do is to take risks to explore and apply their ideas to accomplish their ambitions. They must remember that life is very short, and they are blessed with one life only to explore and avail the opportunities to make it big globally.  Remember, opportunities are infinite while your life is finite. Hence, make your decision to follow your passions to provide meaning to your life.

Chiranjeevi’s ‘Khaidi No. 150’ ― The Boss is Back and Balakrishna’s ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’


Happy Sankranti and Pongal!

“The greatest height of heroism to which an individual, like a people, can attain is to know how to face ridicule.” ― Miguel de Unamuno

Chiranjeevi’ return to Tollywood after a gap of almost a decade raised lots of curiosity and expectations in the film industry. Many analysts are pondering whether he will recreate magic as a Megastar?

Chiranjeevi is a self-made actor who rose from ranks without anybody’s support. He is a role model for many achievers and aspiring actors for his hard work, discipline and dedication. He voluntarily gave up film career and floated Praja Rajyam Party to bring social justice to the society. His party’s merger into Congress Party was not appreciated by many people. It adversely affected his image and political career. Currently he is in political hibernation. He underwent several failures and insults for the last eight years. It has made him as a stronger person. For Chiranjeevi, failure is only a comma, not a full stop. He is a continuous learner, and has the great habit of learning lessons from failures and moving forward with energy and enthusiasm. He is blessed with grace.

After he left the film industry several stars surfaced. Thanks to Chiranjeevi for creating vacuum in the film industry and paving the way for many actors to become stars! Now the boss is back with a bang!


Will Chiranjeevi Succeed as a Megastar?

Undoubtedly, he will succeed because he is passionate about acting, and he ruled the film industry for more than two decades. V. V. Vinayak is an amazing director. Telugu film industry is blessed with such a wonderful professional and humble director. He knows what the audience wants. He knows how to get the best out of Chiranjeevi. He knows how to present Chiranjeevi the way his fans want. He showed his stamina and showcased Chiranjeevi successfully in the film, ‘Tagore.’

Chiranjeevi’s 150th film ‘Khaidi No. 150’ (to be released on January 11, 2017) will be a treat to Telugu audiences for Sankrati (Pongal) festival. Another great Telugu hero, Balakrishna’s 100th film ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’ (to be released on January 12, 2017) will be a treat to the Telugu film industry as it highlights the first Telugu emperor, Satakarni ― an unsung hero. Balakrishna’s body language and oral language will be an asset to this film. Undoubtedly, he is the apt hero for this film, and Krish is the apt director for this film. I hope audiences will enjoy viewing these films on the eve of Sankranti.  


“As you follow the escapades or the journey of the hero through a story, it evokes some kind of emotion in the viewers. The director's job is to make sure that the audience goes through the journey and has an emotional reaction.” ― Don Bluth

Happy New Year 2017! ― Acquire new Habits to Achieve Excellence





Dear friends,

Happy New Year 2017!

The year 2016 passed peacefully. It is time to celebrate New Year with optimism and excitement. Take feedback for the year 2016 and carry forward the goals that have not been accomplished. Analyze the reasons for not accomplishing them to do better in 2017. Most people fail more due to distractions rather than due to their personal mistakes. If you feel that you failed due to the distractions from external environment, you don’t have to regret. Develop a right attitude to understand the realities to move on.

Set your goals. Goals remove negative thoughts from your mind and replace with positive thoughts. Hence, set your goals. Acquire attitude for excellence.
Understand the power of reflection. Reflection helps you understand what worked and what didn’t work. It helps you focus more on your passionate areas.
Carry a notepad with you. Develop a habit of taking notes and carrying a notebook wherever you go. It helps you capture the ideas that pop up your mind and helps you reflect a lot. Remember, a short pencil is always better than a long memory. We tend to forget many things in this complex world. When you observe successful people including Richard Branson, they carry a notebook with them.
Learn when to hold and when to fold. It is tough to make decisions in the current technological world. We cannot predict what happens next due to volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. You must let go off your unpleasant events and experiences from your life to recharge yourself with more energy and enthusiasm.
Avoid negative people around you. Always associate with people who emphasize ideas rather than individuals and issues. Create a healthy and positive environment around you.
Use social media judiciously. Social media is both a boon and bane. It all depends on how you utilize it. You must understand its usage to reap benefits. It is good to adapt to digital technology. At the same, it is essential to maintain physical relations with others. Remember, physical network is more meaningful and fruitful than the virtual network.
Fail differently. Nobody wants to fail and everybody wants to succeed in the world. But you cannot avoid failure. Failure is an integral part of life, and it teaches you to be humble, and be empathetic toward others.
Cultivate the habit of gratitude. Never forget the people who helped you during your life journey. Don’t expect anything from others. Do good to others. What goes around comes around. Express your gratitude to the people who laid the ladder for your success. 
Provide meaning to your life. Remember, life is very short. Hence, make it sweet. Don’t run behind success. Keep doing your work sincerely and the success will chase you. Enjoy the journey, not the destination.

To conclude, acquire new skills and habits and focus on a few areas intensively rather than on many areas. Take one specific area and work on it sincerely for 10 years to become an expert and an international authority on it.

Good luck!





Life is great!
