The happiest are those who live with their own selves- PP Wangchuck
One of the things we need to realise early in life is that if we dont respect ourselves, nobody will. The idea of self-respect is a positive one, and it goes well with the time-tested adage. Clarity being at home. Respecting yourself means you are being good to yourself, and a good person can`t but be good to others.

One of the favorite sports of India`s middle classes is bureaucracy bashing. It is an easy game to play and can be quite a lot of fun. Everyone has their favorite, outrageous story about an encounter with the bureaucracy. The inefficiency, corruption, insensitivity, stupidity and Kafkaesque circularity of bureaucratic procedures and rules are legendary. That India`s bureaucracy is one the most stifling and difficult to deal with has now been revealed in a survey. Over a thousand expatriate business executive rated India`s bureaucracy the most annoying in Asia.
The problem with India is no, as we in the middle class imagine, that we have too many idle and corrupt bureaucrats. The problem is that we have too many rules and regulations and too few officials to implement and monitor the regimes, and bring to book those who flout the rules and regulations. As India`s population grows, the disequilibrium is only going to grow: more rules and regulations to be applied to more and more people by a bureaucracy that is not high enough.
A conclusion: either we expand the bureaucracy or else the government will gradually wither away to the point that India will join the ranks of failed states. That would be a calamity for the Indian people.
Best Wishes!

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has enunciated an excellent principle by stating that life stories of living individuals should not be part of school text book. This came in response to move by Gujrat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan governments- all of them BJP ruled- to introduce a chapter on his life in their school textbooks. One of the reasons the Indian education system does not deliver the goods today is that it is overly politicized.

Finding Happiness: The only formula for happiness is to manage problems rather than forget about them. Problems are created by man but not by nature.Because according to nature, problems ar nothing but challenges. Whe you call a problem a problem, it seems to be an evil, but when you call it a challenge, it becomes a useful part of life, something that spurs your intelligcual development. Kind Regards!
