Arundhati Roy spreads poison as vilification of Hindus reaches all-time high – Maria With


Arundhati Roy

Maria WirthDid Arundhati Roy demonise Hindus to instigate Muslims to “rise up against the oppression” and prepare the world to believe that oppression by Hindus is for real? Is she trying to help Pakistan fulfil its “unfinished agenda” of taking Hindustan by force and make it accept Islam? – Maria Wirth

Sometimes I check the German TV channel Deutsche Welle (DW) to know what they want us, its viewers, to think. Unlike in India, most German news channels are government-friendly. Yet it always amazes me, although India and Germany are on friendly terms, how negatively DW reports on India, most recently, with the help of Arundhati Roy.

So when on 17 April 2020 DW ran a negative story on “Islamophobia at an all-time high in India” and claimed that the Modi government is using the COVID-19 crisis to stigmatise Muslims, I was not surprised. The report showed Muslim vegetable vendors complaining…

Fifty people who have affected Hindus and Hinduism in a negative way – Francois Gautier


Francois Gautier

In a recently posted article on François Gautier’s website, he lists the names of 50 people who can be described as enemies of Hindus and Hinduism. He says that he created the list, which is incomplete, without malice aforethought. 

Here is the list, 50 Biggest Enemies of Hindus (Dead or Alive), including the reasons he gives to justify his choice of enemies — Editor

  • Thomas Babington Macaulay – He played a significant role in introducing English and western concepts to education in India. This was worthy as no one can deny that English gives India an edge in dealing with other countries to penetrate into the era of globalization. Yet, Macaulay had very little regard for Hindu culture and education including all the books written in Sanskrit which actually contains all the historical information. Rather, the worthless abridgement used at preparatory schools in England is considered more valuable than…

Leading Their Needs


To love and Be Loved

Needs. Everyone has them. But do we know how to understand them in our leadership roles?

A number of years ago Hyrum W. Smith, the creator of the Franklin Planner, wrote a book entitled “The 10 Natural Laws of Successful Time and Life Management“. In the latter part of the book, Smith describes what he calls “The Needs Wheel”. In it, he states that everyone has four basic needs:

  • To Live
  • To Love and Be Loved
  • To Feel Important
  • To Experience Variety

At any given time, people will try to achieve simultaneous balance in all four areas. When one of these basic needs are not being met, then balance is off and their efforts go fully towards meeting it, sometimes to the exclusion of their other needs.

As leaders, we can use this model to more effectively meet the needs of our people.

For example, if a…

Too Much Of One Personality Leads To Culture Collision


Back in the 1950s there was developed a simple, yet effective, description of the psychological needs that drive an individual.

It’s called “The Needs Wheel”.

I was introduced to this concept when reading a book by Hyrum Smith, founder of the Franklin Planner and later Franklin Covey. His book “The 10 Natural Laws Of Successful Time And Life Management” devoted the fifth law to a life model based on the Needs Wheel.

The Needs Wheel was developed by Dr. Murray Banks and about a decade after Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs was published. It simplified the basic needs that drive human behavior into 4 core needs:

  1. The need to LIVE
  2. The need to LOVE AND BE LOVED
  3. The need to FEEL IMPORTANT
  4. The need to experience VARIETY

The observational theory behind the needs wheel is that while all four needs are essential to any person, each individual has a weighted…

Leading The Team In Interesting Times

Practical Practice Management A Division of Top Practices

I work in a private practice medical office and over the past 5-6- weeks things have changed a lot.

I am sure you probably are experiencing changes also with your business or place of employment. Many people are either furloughed, laid off, or working reduced hours. Businesses are closed and are now trying to figure out how and when they will possibly reopen. Along with that they are wondering what they can expect.

I have the opportunity not only to manage our practice, but I coach and consult with physicians and their staff across the country. I can tell you that everyone is experiencing “change” in how and what they have normally done and trying to figure out what the “new norm” is and will be in the future.

There is one thing that we all can do during this time to keep our work team headed in the same…

Accept The Challenge?

Practical Practice Management A Division of Top Practices

As I posted earlier this week, we are all in the midst of change.  Change of some sort, at work, from school, at home, in relationships, the list goes on and on.

I was listening to Ryan Holiday’s Daily Stoic video the other day and he happened to mention this quote above by Viktor Frankl and it really spoke to my heart.  We cannot change many of the situations we are encountering right now, so what can we do?  We must accept the “challenge to change ourselves” to move forward.

This sounds easy but it can be very difficult, but what is the alternative?  To stay where we are and be miserable, frustrated and angry or depressed.  These are all real feelings and I am not discounting their place during this time.

What we need to realize is there is something that we can do that is positive, good and…
