The Final Farewell

In midst of smoke under the same roof 
following those who have gone,covered with silk and scarf;
I will be alone, 
watched by the crowd, biding farewell. 
The fire that warms my body now  
will engulf my bones and  flesh, turning me into ashes and dusts. 
The air that freshens me now will blow me to be smoke and vapor.
I will be going into the  mysterious world,  unknown, unseen 
but the world much talked about. 
left will be the memories of my deeds.

My closest friends will moan. 
Strangers will see me go and show pity of my departure. 
Yet no force can stop me from leaving the world.
coz  the force of the unknown world will be the strongest;
to pull me away from the much known world.
 No matter how much I wish to stay  here, 
heedless of the want to hold me by  loved ones , 
I will have to bid  farewell .
My hard earned fame,name and wealth will be of no strength.
My body will cease and soul will depart ;

Guided by chants of  monks into the path I have never taken. 
I will be alone, scared and anxious. 
My companion will be the dark hollow space.
To the spiritual guidance I will seek my refuge
To transform me into the higher  space:
take me to take the path of  higher truth
leave  no trace of sadness in me 
to leave the world of mine: once loved and cared.

 O  the enlightened ones ! I seek your  blessings,
To show me the way towards your  path
Let the end of me be the best beginning of me.

Scolding is not Inspiring

People often mistake scolding as an ability  to change other person in people management. That is the greatest mistake  a person can ever make especially when other person is no more a kid. Instead, scolding creates repercussion  that may not be desirable as thought by the one scolding. 
I often wonder why people resort to scolding when there are many other means to solve the problems. Scolding generates negative energy among  people who are the victims. It agitates people and makes them repeat the same thing intentionally.

Does scolding solve problem? No, it does not instead  complicates the situation. It disheartens those people who need  support and and guidance. A scolding without any analysis of situation of  other person is a sheer blunder. A leader/Manager/Supervisor needs to understand this. Listening to people who lick your boots to please you  shows your inner values and principles.It portrays firmness in your decision-making and your leadership quality. Leader of such kind are not so wanted by many people except the boot lickers.    Scolding your subordinates is not a solution to any problem. Instead listen to them. Have patience to look from broader perspectives the  challenges you are face with regarding people management.
Life could not be any miserable than having to be in a place where your boss is listener to boot lickers and your voice is not at all considered. Leave alone considering your opinion, if it  is just rejected the moment you start to raise will be the worst experience for any person. 
 To inspire people is to encourage and influence their mind and soul . Scolding is  definitely not  an Inspiration. It is rather  something that stimulates nerves than  souls.
