Excellent lessons on Situational Leadership are offered in a Hollywood Movie "Twelve O'Clock High" of 1949, starring Gregory Peck. In this movie, a tough-minded General (Geegory Peck) takes over a bomber unit with low morale, and transforms that unit into a star team with stellar performance. I learnt a great deal about Leadership from this movie - long before my MBA course on Leadership. You can see how a true Leader advances the followers beyond their normal limitations, over the course of their association, by first telling, then selling, followed by collaborating, and finally delegating the assignments. A true leader creates and nurtures many next-generation leaders; the lesson that I learned and have always followed successfully as a committed leader. Thanks to 'Twelve O'Clock High' for such wonderful lessons in Leadership.

Chaos is come again.

– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book! a message to us from the dead -- from human souls we never saw, who lived, perhaps, thousands of miles away.

Excluded by my birth and tastes from the social order, I was not aware of its diversity. Nothing in the world was irrelevant: the stars on a general's sleeve, the stock-market quotations, the olive harvest, the style of the judiciary, the wheat exchange, flower-beds. Nothing. This order, fearful and feared, whose details were all inter-related, had a meaning: my exile.
