3 As

There are 3 things needed to achieve anything... Aspiration , Ability & Approach...
Most of us seem to concentrate on 2 out of these 3 requirements, leading to partial success, or even failure...

Though aspiration is important, it has to be supported by your ability, or atleast someone able enough should be supporting you. The same goes for approach...

There is no benchmark for these things I guess... and no tried and tested proportion either...

Year of Change

With the run up to the General Elections in India, it is amazing to see how policies (across states) are being pushed, and decisions are being made. It almost makes you wonder why they were sitting on all of it for the last 4.5 years when they were agreeable to the change in the first place. 

Be it the Lokayukta Bill, or the Environmental clearances to 70 odd projects... The running government (please read ruining government) is making amends in their style, as if the box has suddenly been open, and all decisions will be made overnight.

The Aam Aadmi party is attempting to make the phenomenon in Delhi nation wide, and they just might succeed in some pockets...

Eitherways, this will be an year of change.. 

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

~ J R R Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
