Lot of messages are being exchanged these days about government giving importance to private companies at the expense of public sector companies.
Wish you all a blissful Vijaya Dasami, Dassehra , Durga Puja, Navaratri and Bathukamma celebrations.
This day reminds me of the beauty of our blissful land BharataVarsha and the culture of Sanatana Dharma.
Remembering Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary. Mahatma is the father of the nation but also one of the key architects of this eternal land, Bharat i.e. India.
Few are destined and mandated to shape a nations history.
1. Mahatma Gandhi – Architect of Independent India
2. Sardar Patel – Architect of United India (living in Hyderabad, always indebted)
3. PV Narsimha Rao – Architect of Modern India
4. Narendra Modi – Architect
USA and India, two major democracies of the world, complement well.
India is a land of spirituality – eternal, energetic, and the pursuit of bliss
USA is a land of freedom – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
No better time than the leadership today to further it.
Howdy, Modi. wishing the event @ Houston, TX all the best.
Notwithstanding debates about future of automobile industry (uber/ola vs own-car), world economy will certainly be dictated by following:
– Generational/Aspirational Shift
– Business Model Shift
– Technology Shift
– Consumer Awareness Shift
Policy makers of all the major countries should be willing to address them in order to recalibrate for the new world.

Many times we don’t know ourselves.
We assume our identity to be the new clothes (new body for our soul) that we put on and forget our true self.
Then we keep searching everywhere to get self realisation.
We need to take a step back, reflect and look inside and we will be able to realise the self.
In search of truth – Blissful journeys of Venky Rao
केयूराणि न भूषयन्ति पुरुषं हारा न चन्द्रोज्ज्वलाः
न स्नानं न विलेपनं न कुसुमं नालङ्कृता मूर्धजाः ।
वाण्येका समलङ्करोति पुरुषं या संस्कृता धार्यते
क्षीयन्ते खलु भूषणानि सततं वाग्भूषणं भूषणम् ।।

కేయూరాణి న భూషయంతి పురుషం హారా న చంద్రోజ్వలా
న స్నానం న విలేపనం న కుసుమం నాలంకృతా మూర్దజా
వాణ్యేకా సమలంకరోతి పురుషం యా సంస్కృతా ధార్యతే
క్షీయంతే ఖలు భూషణాని సతతం వాగ్భూషణం భూషణం

keyūrāṇi na bhūṣayanti puruṣaṁ hārā na candrojjvalāḥ
na snānaṁ na vilepanaṁ na kusumaṁ nālaṅkṛtā mūrdhajāḥ |
vāṇyekā samalaṅkaroti puruṣaṁ yā saṁskṛtā dhāryate
kṣīyante khalu bhūṣaṇāni satataṁ vāgbhūṣaṇaṁbhūṣaṇam ||

Bracelets do not decorate a person, nor do necklaces glittering like the moon.Nor bath, nor smearing the body with fragrance, nor flowers, and nor decorated hair.
Nor bath, nor smearing the body with fragrance, nor flowers, and nor decorated hair.
Only that speech embellishes a person, which has been upheld with cultural refinement.
Indeed, all ornaments decay. Ornament of speech is always the real ornament.
Recently a young student shared this with me. Not just the young graduates but most of us face this at different stages of life and feel stuck. Isn’t it?
If we can’t win a stupid game, it is time to change the rules.
If we can’t change the rules, change to a better game for us.
Let that monkey and bird play that game.
There is enough water in the world for seal and fish to not only survive but have fun and live a blissful life.
Penguin will find its habitat, so are the dog and elephant and will find their strengths to blissfully live their lives rather than feeling lost and failed.
Monkey will succeed in that monkey business since even the bird will soon leave it and soar high in the skies.
