Rocky: Our world is passing through an economic revolution. Every young man is interested in business these days.
Meera: We’re limited to two words: business and computers. People are becoming selfish and money-minded. Literature has been the soul of our society for centuries, which we are losing fast. Now, relations or friendships are hardly soulful or pure.
Sonia: Meera, you can’t live with a romantic approach. We must accept the hard realities of life. Nowadays, we have no time to listen to poets or read novels. Literature is a sheer waste of time.
Sanjay: We are diverting from our basic topic: the art of business success. So let’s discuss the same. There is competition in every field. We do need art to succeed.
Meera: You can get success in any field with a simple idea. Work hard and maintain honesty in your dealings. There is no other way to success.
Rocky: My approach is totally practical. All have yet to achieve success in business by applying these principles. Gandhian ideology doesn’t work in the industry. Speak as many lies as possible, but you must have convincing power. Otherwise, you will need help to succeed.
Sonia: I’m afraid I have to disagree with both of you. Both ways are dangerous. We need a middle path. Meera’s approach may become a burden. And if we start telling lies, people won’t believe us. We’ll become a failure. Sanjay, your father is a successful businessman. You can tell what can be the rational approach.
Sanjay: My father works very hard and uses common sense everywhere. It may be his principle. He is also a sincere person. Yet, most people need help with this approach. Success is more challenging than we think.
Meera: We should recognize the importance of luck.
Sanjay: Yes, I agree. Without luck, you can’t achieve anything in life. With my constant observation, I have also arrived at this conclusion.
Rocky: Rubbish. Only fools depend on luck. Luck may work once, but not every time. Different foreign powers enslaved India because Indians always depended on luck. Those powers were always small in number. But they were more disciplined. They used three basic tools, which brought them victory. 1. Modern war methods, 2. Strategy, and 3. Diplomacy. They never depended on luck.
Sonia: What about the lying principle you talked about? Your focus can’t create a good society essential for humankind’s happy survival. Moreover, we are talking about business success rather than about victory in war. I recently read in a newspaper that many modern management gurus advocate Gandhian principles to succeed in business.
Rocky: I must accept that I should have emphasized (overstressed) the principle of convincing lies. But ultimately, you’ll have to agree that there is no difference between war and business.
Meera: You’re again mistaken, Rocky. How did great people’s lives like Mahatma Gandhi and Edison become big success stories? By applying two simple tools: honesty and hard work, to give a touch of fire and uniqueness to your personality, a third tool is also necessary, i.e., continuously developing your talent.
Sonia: Meera’s ideas carry weight. But no more debate or argument! We are getting late for our homes. We must leave now.
Sanjay: Don’t be in such a hurry, Sonia. You know we are discussing a very important topic.
Sonia: Remember, there is no end to the debate. And now we have got enough ideas. Any sensible person can find a workable and practical principle of these ideas.
