While we all wait for the launch of The Professional later this month, I have something special to share with you.
I trust that all of you are tracking the Zen Garden in Forbes India magazine in which I have had the rare privilege of hosting some truly remarkable people from Jimmy Wales to Siddhartha, from Anu Aga to Kiran Mazumdar Shaw. In this unusual column, I get to know of their personal space, their ideas about life and work and their life-lessons.
This fortnight, I have the rarest of rare occasions: His Holiness, the Dalai Lama is the visitor to the Zen Garden. He is, to me the CEO of the soul and entrepreneur of the spirit.
On behalf of all of you, I had the opportunity to converse with him recently in Delhi. We talked about today’s business crisis, on leadership and the young professional who loses affective regard for the idea of work while seeking early material success.
Do not miss it, you must pick up the collector’s issue from the news stand in the coming week and let me know your thoughts.
