ADDENDUM : How to deal with anxiety ? [-]
"Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength." - Corrie ten Boom

"Man is not worried by real problems so much as by his imagined anxieties about real problems" - Epictetus

"Okay, so, flying," I started, taking a deep breath and focusing on the thing I loved most in the world. "Flying is … great. It feels great when you're doing it. It's fun. Pure freedom.

Thing to ponder over :
"All truly great thoughts
are conceived while walking."
- Friedrich Nietzsche,
Twilight of the Idols

[It's enough story"]"Until you get enough of enough, the "enough" that is never enough, you dare not quit! If your good is better, your better can be best; your best too can become excellent!"

Enough It is enough for me by day

"Enough It is enough for me by day To walk the same bright earth with him; Enough that over us by night The same great roof of stars is dim. I do not hope to bind the wind Or set a fetter on the sea -- It is enough to feel his love Blow by like music over me." - Sara Teasdale, Love Songs

Wait-a-minute!
Reality kicked in after marking its spot `position vacant' for the short and pleasant while. He groaned mournfully as he found himself staring at the inside of his own eyelids. The first thing that occurred to him was the terrible bone-wracking pain running up and down his spine. Pain? No, curiously enough. It was the memory of it that seemed to hurt so much. Maybe that's what scared him. Or maybe it was the creaking of the ship around him…" - Christina Engela, Blachart

Forever 'More!'
"Enough is never enough. Not for our massive, marauding, relentlessly acquisitive egos whose eternal cry is 'More!' 'More!' Forever 'More!' Wisdom, then, is the simple realization, the grateful acknowledgment, 'Hey, I'm good.' I have enough. I don't need more." ? Lionel Fisher, Celebrating Time Alone: Stories Of Splendid Solitude

"Nothing is sufficient for the person who finds sufficiency too little" - Epicurus
"The Master doesn't try to be powerful; thus he is truly powerful. The ordinary man keeps reaching for power; thus he never has enough. The Master does nothing, yet he leaves nothing undone. The ordinary man is always ding things, yet many more are left to be done. […] Therefore the Master concerns himself With the depths and not the surface, With the fruit and not the flower. […] Teaching without words, Performing without actions: That is the Master's way. […] The Master arrives without leaving, Sees the light without looking, Achieves without doing a thing. […] The Master is above the people, And no one feels oppressed. She goes ahead of the people, And no feels manipulated. The whole world is grateful to her. Because she completes with no one, No one can complete with her."- Lao Tzu

Have you ever considered what Adam and Eve were doing when they got into so much trouble?
"Have you ever considered what Adam and Eve were doing when they got into so much trouble? As I read the story, they were shopping. The forbidden fruit was not scattered throughout the garden, not in many places, not in multiple locations, but one place, one site, one location and one location only. Perhaps they just came upon it, "Oh, look, the forbidden fruit…" or, perhaps, they were looking for something, searching, shopping. Somewhere in their dissatisfaction they thought, "If only we had something more…"- David W. Jones, Enough: And Other Magic Words to Transform Your Life

 

 

 

Nature
"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein "Faraway a leopard barked that high, dissatisfied deep roar it cuts off so sharply, as if its annoyance is too great to express, can only be appeased." - Mike Bond, The Last Savanna
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter." - Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
"You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place in the family of things." - Mary Oliver
"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness." - John Muir
"The mountains are calling and I must go." - John Muir The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles." - Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

...there are people who try to look as if they are doing a good and thorough job, and then there are the people who actually damn well do it, for its own sake. - John D. MacDonald, Free Fall in Crimson

"It is interesting that this thoroughness, which is a virtue, is often misunderstood. When someone says a thing has been done scientifically, often all he means is that it has been done thoroughly. I have heard people talk of the "scientific" extermination of the Jews in Germany. There was nothing scientific about it. It was only thorough. There was no question of making observations and then checking them in order to determine something. In that sense, there were "scientific" exterminations of people in Roman times and in other periods when science was not so far developed as it is today and not much attention was paid to observation. In such cases, people should say "thorough" or "thoroughgoing," instead of "scientific." ? Richard Feynman

""I'm an oracle of the past. I can accurately predict up to 1 minute in the future, by thoroughly investigating the last 2 years of your life. Also, I look like an old database – flat and full of useless info." - Will Advise, Nothing is here...

"If you need something from somebody always give that person a way to hand it to you." - Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Speech of Prime Minister (by Video conference) at the International Diamond Conference "Mines to Market 2017" on 19th March 2017

Distinguished Guests from India and abroad
Delegates
Ladies and Gentlemen

I am very happy to address you at this charity dinner at the International Diamond Conference. This conference is part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council of India. The conference on the theme of “Mines to Market 2017”, brings together miners, diamond companies, experts, retailers, bankers and analysts from across the globe.


Since the council was created fifty years ago, India has made rapid strides in this industry. As you all know, India is now the world’s largest manufacturer of cut and polished diamonds. The gems and jewellery sector is one of the leading sectors in India in terms of value of exports as well as employment generation. In the last four decades, India has emerged as the leader in diamond manufacturing and export. Exports of gems and jewellery from India account for fifteen percent of India’s total merchandise exports. This is one of India’s success stories. From just twenty eight million dollars in 1966-67, exports reached one billion dollars in 1982-83 and two billion dollars in 1987-88. It crossed ten billion dollars in 2003-04, twenty billion dollars in 2007-08 and is now nearly forty billion dollars.

Friends, till recently Indian importers had to go abroad to view and purchase rough diamonds. This reduced the efficiency of the supply chain. Many of you wanted us to enable viewing and trading to happen in India. In December, 2014 at the World Diamond Conference held in Delhi, I had announced in the presence of the Russian President that we would set up a Special Notified Zone to achieve this. This promise has been kept. Amendments have been made to our laws to enable rough diamonds to enter and exit, duty free for the purpose of viewing. The Special Notified Zone at the Bharat Diamond Bourse became operational in November, 2015. This has already shown good results. Earlier only eighty to ninety big merchants used to get access to global rough diamonds by travelling to Belgium, Africa and Israel. Now, about three thousand small and medium merchants have this privilege through the new Special Notified Zone. Many of the most reputed international names in the diamond industry have conducted over two hundred and forty four days of viewings. My intention is to make India, which is already the cutting and polishing hub, into an International Diamond Trading Hub.

Ladies and Gentlemen, our goal is to transform India in one generation. Since taking office, this government has placed emphasis on many transformative initiatives. ‘Make in India’ is one of them. Our aim is to make India a preferred destination for manufacturing. In the last fifty years, the gems and jewellery sector has accounted for four hundred and seventy five billion dollars of exports. This is despite the fact that India has little diamond or gold production. Another important initiative is Skill India. Skill India aims to ensure that new entrants to the work force have the necessary skills to contribute to the economy of the 21st century. The gems and jewellery sector employs 4.6 million people. Out of this, one million people are in the diamonds industry alone. Thus the gems and jewellery sector is a prime example of the potential of ‘Make In India’ and Skill India.

Today, we have with us Ministers from several African countries. India cherishes its excellent relations with Africa. Our shared post-colonial heritage and the similarity of the challenges we face, make us natural partners. I take this opportunity to assure my friends from Africa that India will be happy to support them in developing their gems and jewellery sector, and in training their technicians.

I began by saying that this sector has come a long way from where it was. However it is still far behind where it should be. Our strongest area is diamond cutting and polishing. In terms of the global value in the gems and jewellery market, our share is lower than it should be. Our future is much bigger than cutting and polishing alone. We have a lot of unexplored potential. Let me ask you a question:


What is your strategy for increasing India’s share of the hand made jewellery market?


I am told that to a significant extent, Indian exports are importer-led: the specifications and designs are based on preferences given by importers. This means that India is a follower of global fashion rather than a leader of global taste. This does not do justice to our rich experience and abundant design talent. Let me give an example. India has many famous icons, sculptures and statues dating back over two thousand years. Many of them are shown wearing jewellery. These works of art have captivated people from around the world. Have we documented these? Have we thought of promoting jewellery based on these works of art?


Friends. We live in an era where cloth retailers change people’s preferences. Even hair dressers change hair style fashions of their clients. We live in an era where diamonds are used in spectacles, watches and pens. Can’t our jewellers, with their skills, strengths and heritage, create and change global tastes and fashions?
In order to be able to influence and change global fashion, our industry first needs to have a thorough knowledge of its market. The industry collectively needs to study and understand the end-users and what they want: for example, some areas and some groups may prefer gold, others silver and yet others platinum. The basic point is that we cannot be world leaders without first connecting strongly with the client. E-commerce makes it much easier to establish direct contact with the end-user. This is a golden opportunity for the Indian industry. The industry could think of encouraging start-ups by young entrepreneurs who can create a growing market for made-to-order Indian jewellery.


There was a time in the past where some products from India had achieved a global reputation. Today, India has acquired a global brand for high skills and excellence in software.  We are yet to do that in jewellery. If we do that, the potential is huge. This is a task which the Council should take up in right earnest. But the states also have a role to play. Since taking office, we have encouraged state governments to take an active role in export promotion. I hope the industry is in constant touch with them. Apart from exports, India as the fastest growing economy in the world will also see increased domestic demand.


It is important for the industry to plan its growth. But that is not enough. It is also necessary for you to think of the weakest among you. The Council should consider taking a census of the lowest-paid and least prosperous persons in your industry,  for example the workers living in places like Jaipur, Thrissur, Varanasi, Rajkot, Jaipur and Coimbatore. Can the industry ensure that every one of them is enrolled in the Government’s low cost social security schemes like

-- the Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana for accident insurance
--the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana for life insurance
and
--the Atal Pension Yojana for an assured minimum pension?


The accident insurance cost is about a rupee a month and the life insurance costs about a rupee a day. A bank deposit of approximately five thousand rupees would earn enough interest to pay these premia permanently.
Friends. India will celebrate the seventy fifth anniversary of its Independence in 2022. What goals is the gems and jewellery industry setting for itself by that date? What can you do for the country by then? Where do you think the industry should be by then? How will you get there? How many new jobs can you create? I call upon you to give this a serious thought and come up with a plan. If changes are needed in regulations, I ask you to come up, with specific and practical suggestions. We can certainly consider them if they are in the interest of our country.


I conclude by thanking you for this opportunity to share my thoughts. I wish the conference all success.

NEW DELHI, MARCH 20 :
"The importance of cultivating assumption of the best intentions in others cannot be over-estimated. Fostering this principal of, "goodness of intent," and committing to seeing others and the world through this lens makes for a successful, happy field of vision. This enables us to put our focus and energy to positive, productive outcomes.

Big Pharma needs sick people to prosper. Patients, not healthy people, are their customers. If everybody was cured of a particular illness or disease, pharmaceutical companies would lose 100% of their profits on the products they sell for that ailment.

Are global supply chains creating new service jobs?


Globalization has radically altered the way things get manufactured. Increasingly, manufacturing goods are created with inputs from all over the world, through a complex web of production that links workers and companies from different sectors and countries. In particular, the services sector has become an ever more important input provider to this production process, a phenomenon that some economists refer to as the "servicification of manufacturing".


The increasingly globalized production and the rising importance of services in manufacturing goods production have led to a boom in related service-sector jobs in global supply chains. That's a topic we explored in a new research paper entitled "Linking jobs in global supply chains to demand". How big is this phenomenon, why did it happen and what are its implications for the global economy?

NEW DELHI, JANUARY 19 :
India's labour force will expand by 160-170 million in 2020, depends on various factors which includes population growth rate, labour force participation, education enrolment at higher levels etc, an ASSOCHAM –Thought Arbitrage joint study has pointed out.


Overall, the labour force increased from around 337 million in 1991 to around 488 million in 2013 – an expansion of 151 million in labour force in roughly 22 years. Employment level more or less followed the same trend as shown by the labour force but employment level fell short of the labour force throughout the period, creating a consistent gap between the two. Employment in India witnessed an increase to 470 million in 2013 as compared to 323 million in 1991, the ASSOCHAM-Thought Arbitrage joint study on 'Employment Generation and Rebooting India' noted.

Cervical cancer is preventable


Cancer screening, and HPV vaccination - key to prevention

Authored by Dr Lata Kini, Lead Clinical Pathologist, CORE Diagnostics

Top question of the dying: "What made me sick?"
― Steven Magee

Ask any 10 women in India whether they have ever undergone cervical cancer screening and about 9 of them would have not. Despite the readily available and convenient screening modalities in the form of Pap smear test or liquid based cytology that can help prevent cervical cancer or detect it in its asymptomatic stage, most women in India do not undergo regular cervical screening. As a result, an overwhelming number are diagnosed with the disease in an advanced or invasive stage, by when it becomes difficult to treat.
