visited warangal, Andhrapradesh and talked to more than 500 students and faculty form Kakatiya university affiliated colleges. One of the new ideas which emerged was setting up of a Warangal District social venture fund. Prakash, an eminent educationalist and some other friends including the president of the asia’s one of the largest rural markets ( 1500 crores turnover) agreed to take initiative in this regard, thanks or Honey bee network ap coordinator, brig Ganesham, and mr sarma. Once such funds come up all over the country, nothing can stop an entrepreneurial revolution to take place, no matter how hard the Mandarins in Indian planning commission and GOI try to thwart it.
Dilip kumar, a young student asked me rather brusquely, i am not interested in what you are talking, tell me what are the three values you practice in your daily life? i said, frugality, samvedana ( ability to feel some body else’s pain as one’s own) and curiosity ( curiosity leading to enthusisams, enthusiasm generating energy and energy generating bliss, utsukta generating utsah, utsah generating urja, and urja generating ullas).
