The Secret of Success

He stopped his van in front of a house, looked here and there and dashed towards another house to deliver a parcel which he was carrying. In a jiffy he returned and boarded the van and drove off. The all-in-all looked so smart that he captured my attention whenever I came across him carrying a parcel or driving his van crisscross the city. It was not as if he was doing something extraordinary but the way he did it was commendable. Such people are rare but efficiency comes in other forms which may not produce immediate results and yet, such workers can win your hearts by an innocent looking smile or appearing to be helpful!
Even as my mind was obsessed with that gentleman and the more or less similar workers, I happened to read an article from a top journal about global companies including the one in which the all-in-all mentioned above is working. Maybe such efficient workers are the secret of the success of such global companies.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
