Generations have perished waiting
for their kings, politicians and corporate leaders to change their lives for
the better. The war between good and evil is still ongoing. Zero decibel level
sounds deafen the conscience of the mortals. It is rare to find time for
introspection. Everyone knows about the forbidden apples but do nothing about them.
Very few are inspired to follow
the messages of angels. A good lyricist, a script writer and an inventor have
exceeded the expectations from the angels. Spirituality is about inspiring us to
do good deeds, freeing all of us from the bondage of religious rituals.
Corporate spirituality through corporate ahimsa is one such deed for a
fulfilling life irrespective of success and failure. Stop waiting for a messiah
or angels as they have done their bit, it is now up to us to simplify
ourselves. Keep in mind God is an equal opportunity employer.
Munnishwar Vasudeva’s professional
journey in the corporate sector was a great success. But in his childhood, his
family lived on state subsidy for fuel, food, studies and clothing with the
hope that things will get better. His mother’s religious disciplined rituals
inspired his life and his father ensured the best of education was given to
him, making the onset of corporate life meaningful. The sense of insecurity
works as a positive asset that made him fearless. What he received from his
mother spiritually also gave him energy and he never got tired of professional
ambitions. The lessons from his father like see no evil, hear no evil
made a lot of sense. Experiments on Ahimsa principles with the seniors and
co-workers led him to believe in the relevance of corporate non-violence.
Looking back at the journey and counting his earnings, he understands that he
still has a positive balance of wealth and knowledge. It will be satisfying if
his experiences on corporate ahimsa that has been shared in this book manage to
send the messages of ahimsa to all his colleagues.
Post-graduation in engineering
from IIT was a contrasting experience to having a job in a company with a few
hundred thousand dollars turnover. Real survival in the beginning of the
professional career earned taught him tough lessons that were worth a lot more
than a salary. Transition to a company that was worth a few million dollars
further tested his wits – earning more money, gaining more knowledge and
getting unconventional lessons. An eventful transfer into a big corporate worth
a few billions with more than thousand colleagues allowed bigger
experimentation and resulted in big learning. A journey to the senior level is
like a journey of a technician turning into a politician – it is very tough and
requires a great survival skills. At the height of his professional career,
while writing this book, all his innovations seemed way smaller and
insignificant than his experiments with ahimsa principles.
