Dalai Lama Visits Zen Garden

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.

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.

Subroto Bagchi and Dalai Lama

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.

Dear Subroto,

Little disappointed to know that I have to wait till end of September to see ‘The professional’ in my hand. I have already booked it from Indiaplaza.in and counting the days.

Dear Sir,

I look forward to reading the 2nd issue of September edition of Forbes-India magazine. I also look forward to lay my hands on the upcoming book ‘The Professional’.

A suggestion. I would request if you could bring out a collection of your column ‘The Zen Garden’ on an yearly basis, since there are possibilities that most of us might miss out a few interviews, which we could catch up through the yearly collection. I guess this suggestion might be a bit too early, but please do consider this when the appropriate time arrives.

My beauty is not eqievalunt to my dress size otherwise, I’d kinda be a loser. LOL.My beauty is not determined by how much pain I’m in with my lupus. I’m as beautiful as I let myself feel. So I’d damned better believe in myself, shouldn’t I!Mae recently posted

Ou on peut se dire que chacun est différent, fait face à l’adversité, à la vie selon ses moyens et ses préférences.Et qu’il n’y a ni solution miracle, ni voie pré-tracée et généralisable à chacun.C’est un peu plus proche de la réalité que vos propos légérement manichéens.
