“Do Indians Lack in Attitude, Commitment and Focus?”- Professor M.S.Rao

"No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated and disciplined." - Harry E. Fosdick

Some of the students often questioned me the reasons for lack of rapid progress for India. I wanted to address this issue as I am equally concerned about India. Like any other responsible citizen, I also want my country to grow globally as an economic super power.  I decided to put across my thoughts straightforwardly on this issue.

Indians are very strong in Information Technology and Mathematics. In early 2014, Satya Nadella was elevated as the CEO of Microsoft thus making many Indians proud globally. It proves beyond doubt that Indians are strong in IT. Indians have several strengths such as hardworking nature, adaptability, and rising to the challenges to name a few. However, some of the Indians lack the right attitude to avail the opportunities. They lack in commitment which is a cause for concern in the global workplace. They also lack focus which is very much required to grow as good citizens. Despite being strong in various areas their lack in right attitude, commitment and focus is preventing them from grabbing the opportunities.  Hence, Indians must address these issues earnestly without getting defensive to grow as good citizens. The objective of any feedback is to raise the issues that are causes for concern to bring out behavioral improvements. Remember, feedback is not criticism but a tool to bring out behavioral improvements to excel as better citizens.

It is unfortunate to note here that Indians are often not trusted globally due to lack in commitment. Due to this reason, those who go abroad work harder to build their credibility and commitment to excel professionally. If these qualities are imbibed within India itself sky is the limit for Indians.
