Deep Diving Into The Uncharted Waters
Everything starts from zero. Every beginning has an end. Every ending has a new beginning. And, life is actually a long journey into the unknown. “What’s the point of life then?” your logical mind asks you, in a slightly derogatory tone. You cannot comprehend the vast nature of life. Similarly, you cannot really understand the recipe for success. It changes constantly.
One thing that never changes is team work. You need divergent skillsets coming together in order to create something unique and awe-inspiring.
Kanchipuram sarees are considered to be outstanding for their quality and craftsmanship. The sarees are woven from pure mulberry silk that comes from South India and the zari(a type of gold thread used decoratively) comes from Gujarat.
In a genuine Kanchipuram silk saree, body and border are woven separately and interlocked together. The joint is woven so strongly that even if the saree tears, the border will not detach.
And these are sarees with rich woven pallu(hanging end of a saree) showing paintings of Raja ravi Varma and epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. These features differentiate Kanchipuram silk sarees from the others.
This just goes to show the importance of proficiency in a team, in order to achieve something truly astonishing.
Kanchivaram, a tamil film depicts the struggles of silk weavers and Prakash Raj won the national award for best actor. This also proves the fact that an unachievable feat like weaving a Kanchipuram silk saree can inspire an artist to showcase his talent.
Here comes the next part. You need a leader who can motivate you and show you the way. Who is a leader? What are his/her qualities? How can we trace them? There’s abundant learning in a failure story as compared to that of a successful one. Have you watched Chernobyl, HBO miniseries? If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favor and watch it on hotstar.
On 26 April 1986, Dyaltov supervised a test at Reactor 4 of the Chernobyl nuclear plant, which resulted in the worst nuclear plant accident in the history. It was found that Dyaltov threatened some workers with job terminations if they did not proceed with the test that night in Chernobyl. Dyaltov is the complete opposite of a leader. Knowing how you shouldn’t be brings you closer to how you should be.
Sandeep Singh, who’s known as Flicker Singh, is an Indian professional hockey player. Singh was seriously injured after being hit by an accidental gunshot in Shatabdhi Express train, in 2006. He was almost paralyzed and on wheel chair for almost 1 year of his life. He not only recovered from that serious injury but also established himself again and played world cup for India in 2010. He’s Arjuna Award recipient for his achievements in hockey.
Soorma(2018), a movie based on his life depicts the emotional turmoil of Sandeep Singh during his dark phase and how he received support from his family members. You need people who support your dreams and never ever let you give up on them. You don’t necessarily find help from your family, every time. That’s why you need a team that believes you and trusts your leadership.
Every adversity, every challenge, every setback should invigorate the collective energy of the team. This is AN INDISPENSABLE quality of a successful team. It’s not the failure that decides your fate. It’s the mindset that is unable to fathom it that’s fatal.
You ONLY need COURAGE to actually deep dive into uncharted waters.
Courage to continue.....
Courage to accept.....
Courage to sacrifice.....
