What’s Your Opinion – II

Posted: February 18, 2009 in Events, Literary Club

Probably one of the most oft repeated sentence which one might have heard as a teenager (some might be still hearing this!!!) from one’s parents is that “Cleanliness is next to godliness”. I guess we all will agree to this. Especially, when we are working in an environment where quality requirements supersede anything and everything else. After all, no good can come out of dirty, sloppy work. Right!!!

Scottish scientist, Alexander Fleming, was researching the flu in 1928. One day he noticed that a blue-green mold had infected one of his petri-dishes and it killed the staphylococcus bacteria growing in it. And thus was discovered Penicillin.

If he wouldn’t have been sloppy and would have followed his research more systematically and neatly, I doubt whether he would have stumbled on penicillin.

No doubt, systematic and methodical approaches are neccesary for solving problems but some how when it comes to discoveries, its exactly the opposite which seems to work. Chance is the the only factor which makes the difference. Infact, I would say – “Discoveries/Invention are Chances

Now one can always argue there are inventions/discoveries which were made not by chance but were actually intended. However, how many of these were used for the intended purpose they were invented/ discovered for in the first place.

In early 18th century, a pharmacy invented and sold a new cold syrup. However it was soon discovered that the syrup tasted better than actually curing the ailment(whether it actually cured anything is still a debatable topic). Hence was found what we all are addicted to, carbonated beverages or cold drinks.

It is a fact that Columbus discovered the sea route to America. But what is also a fact is that it is the route to India he intended to discover.

And these are just few of the many examples around. Statistically, more than 75% of the discoveries/inventions have been reported to fall in one of the above two categories. Hard work, perseverance, patience are all required. But more often then not these revolutionary findings which alter the face of the entire society is a product of Luck by Chance.


What is the key to success?

How to select the path to progress and growth?

What skills are needed to move ahead in corporate environment?


Technical Trainees Program is a platform for intellectual and creative growth of the Trainees.  In-order to compliment the technical skills, personal and professional development is also very essesntial.


As a part of this endeavour, an interactive session has been planned focusing on,


“How to transform yourselves from technical students to good professionals to future leaders”


The session will be facilitated by Prabir Jha, Global Chief – Human Resources & Corporate Communications


Date & Time: 5th March’09, 10:00 am to 12.00pm

Venue: Training Room, C Block, Basement
