कुछ रोज़ हुए तुझे रुखसत किया ख़यालों से। मिटा के सुबूते इश्क़ तेरे खतूतों को ख़ाक करके। वो आख़िरी तस्वीर भी गरक करदी उस बहते दरिया में फैंक कर। बहती आँखों से उसको भी मिटा दिया वो तेरा नाम जो लिखा था मेरे दिल के पास कहीं। फिर क्यूँ तेरा ज़िक्र बेचैन कर गया महफ़िल में आज मुझे।

Moving around and reading a large number of books on Leadership, I have experimented and achieved considerable success over the years in my professional life.
Does your success really matter for being a true leader??
May be,yes!! as most of the books carry examples of successful leaders who have excelled in their professional amd Personal lives. Some writers talk about the born leaders while others ridicule this concept of born leaders as they consider leaders to inculculcate the qualities and zeal to succeed in their attitude while the genes play no role in the making of great leaders
I happened to experience an all together different phenomenon of Leadership last Sunday. Our entire family unit is holidaying in USA these days and suddenly my grandson aged eight years suggested visiting Rockville a place for indoor rock climbing sport for a few hours. He is a genius at such a tender age and we couldn’t say no to his proposal. About forty minutes drive from our residence and we were there to see the anxious performance of the kids numbering four. The youngest being my grand daughter just four years old studying in her kinder garten school. After payment at the counter, the kids were ready in their sports gears and support staff. I was feeling relaxed in the company of My son/daughter and their families watching the kids trying to climb the vertical walls of more than 60 feet.
my grandson having already experienced this adventure alongwith the school team was quick touching the top repeatedly but all other kids and elder ones looked desperate. Every effort looked in vain as they felt out of breath and clapped at what my grandson was doing repeatedly.
Suddenly we could see my grand daughter trying to go up steadily but finding the task little bit too tough for her age had surrendered. She got up again and we stood motionless looking at each other as the four years old tried yet another time and clinging like a small creature from a distance she was trekiing up slowly . In minutes she was up there on top!!! Everyone started cheering her and waited for her return on the floor.
It was like an Olympic Gold performance as the cuddles and blessings showered from all over the place and we looked proud grand parents. The real story started after this wonderful achievement by the little cute girl. My grandson aged less than five years looked determined and so did everyone in the family. One after the other every member found the blood gushing in his arteries and to the great astonishment everyone tried and climbed the curved wall like really professional rock climbers!!
The inspiration and leading from the front attitude was shown by the little girl. Did she mean to lead the family?? Did she try to succeed professionally?? Did she have any ambition other than climbing the wall?? Not really but unknowingly she presented a great lesson on leadership and I wondered if any of the books written by the acclaimed writers had been able convey the
message which has this four years girl conveyed authentically
You are the True Leader indeed!!
Sipping coffee with one of my nephews in Delhi who visited my office to counsel his brother in law on the nitty-gritty of Home Loan financing I was shocked to hear a query from a semi-illiterate middle-aged visitor. ” Is it safe to invest in etherium and which company is good for investing Etherium” With banking background for more than 35 years and managing a Finance company after my retirement,I have just acquired a little knowledge about the cryptocurrency from my son in law who has mastered the complete theory of blockchain and its products during my recent visit to the USA. The subject looked interesting and on my way back from the USA, I managed to read two books on the subject which enlightened me further.
Finishing my cup of coffee, I looked amazingly at the visitor to know how he knew about Cryptocurrencies. Baffled by my direct query, he thought for a while and came up with another bombshell ” Perhaps you have not heard of Etherium so far. My son has invested Rs.500000/- and every day 10 etherium are credited to his account which he can encash after 15 days”
I could sense trouble for him and the family for having invested such a big amount without knowing about the product. On further investigation, I could google the name of the company which turned out to be a P2P Finance company misleading the poor investors.
This incident reminded me of the Harshad Mehta’s infamous regime when thousands of investors had lost their hard earned money by investing in non-existent companies. Every day the stocks were gaining new heights and more and more unsuspected public was getting attracted to the stock market. We could see application forms for IPO’s at the shops of tea vendors, Pan wallah, taxi driver and other such small shops.
Everyone was found discussing about the share market and trying to get rich overnight by investing in share market. Alas!! most of the investors lost their hard earned and sometimes borrowed money also.
I don’t think investment in Bitcoin or other currencies is going to behave the same way as the markets did during Harshad Mehta’s regime but my worries originate from the conversations I have started hearing in India and now Australia. People doing petty jobs and small shopkeepers, barbers have started discussing cryptocurrencies. Nothing technical but worried exclamations “Bitcoin is moving up, Ripple(XRP) is down, Etherium is inert, Ohh- I lost 1000$”
sentiments are also hurt due to daily reports of employees arrested by the enforcement agencies of various countries for mining cryptocurrencies in their office unauthorisedly using the infrastructure provided to them by the departments for carrying out official work. An advanced computer with a specific configuration is required for mining of crypto which consumes a lot of electricity causing loss to the department. The cost of mining goes astronomically high for mining on ordinary computers which forces the employees to use unfair means.
Now Google coming heavily by banning all ads pertaining to ICO and other related issues, the crypto has nosedived again and the short term investors or traders are jumping in to sell their holdings. This will again impact the valuation and a lifetime chance for long-term investors who could analyze the newly found internet product intelligently.
We know Bitcoin has already produced hundreds of Millionaires and who knows which of the more than 1400 cryptocurrencies takes a few more to this mark in near future
With millions of dollars being lost by the investors in hacking incidents rather than actual turbulence in prices due to unexplained reasons, the trading in this newly found currency has been facing uncertain future. The exchanges are going bankrupt and creating doubts in the minds of investors about the safety of their accounts. There is nothing of the sort who can be approached in an emergency as the entire system is digital and investor has only one key to control his wallet.
There are no regulators as the block-chain is meant to be transacting business without any third party interference to maintain privacy about the transactions which doesn’t cost much too.
Australia and Japan have allowed various exchanges to transact business through BITCOIN but making it mandatory to ensure compliance with AML and KYC norms. The basic purpose seems to control anti-terrorist activities by not allowing money to flow the unintended destinations.
Other countries like China, North Korea, and Russia have their own definitions and interpretations of the cryptocurrency but the Indian Govt has clearly stated BITCOIN to be an illegal entity. However, the blockchain technology remains opened to improve the efficiency and cost of the transactions in India.
Bitcoin-like cryptocurrencies can be regulated by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), U.S. District Judge Jack Weinstein ruled recently in his judgment. The federal judge thus upheld the CFTC’s position from 2015 that cryptocurrencies are commodities, saying it was supported by the plain meaning of the word “commodity” and that the agency had “broad leeway to interpret the law” regulating commodities.
Now coming to the ruling by the US Courts, if the bitcoin is treated as a commodity, the same will be regulated under SEC and CFTC, the regulators defeating the very purpose of creating BITCOIN by Satoshi Nakamoto. Will this commodity be as acceptable as has been so far giving the valuation to BITCOIN as high as 18000 US$? I have my own exceptions here! Although the total supply is fixed at 21 million and the last lot of bitcoins is destined to be mined in the year as far as 2146 but the system getting more and more transparent through regulators, the demand of BITCOIN may subside bringing Bitcoin to the sensible tradeable levels
The only good news is coming from the USA with a billion dollars hedge fund floated to rope in long terms investors in the cryptocurrencies and that makes sense too as short-term investors/traders are just scaring away with the present valuation of almost all the cryptocurrencies. Another credit card comapny has come up with cash back scheme in cryptocurrencies. This may boost the comfort level of people who are watching the movements of these currencies from a distance.
The past several years have been relatively placid for the banking industry. After the wholesale failure of the system during the financial crisis, banks gradually recovered their footing. Aided by essentially free money from the Federal Reserve, bailouts, and widespread federal and central bank guarantees, banks once again became rock-solid American institutions. As the expansion rolled on, companies and individuals did a much better job keeping up with their financial obligations. The result: record profits for banks and an extremely low rate of bank failure.
In 2016, banks covered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation showed huge profits and only a few banks failed last year. What’s more, the banks that failed were truly marginal, counting just 18 branches
But something worrisome is happening in 2017. So far this year, seven banks have already failed. More important, the banks that are failing are significantly larger. Guaranty Bank of Milwaukee bit the dust. A few months before, it was First NBC Bank of New Orleans Financial failure begets financial failure. For the first time in nearly a decade, this is what it has started to happen in US.
The U.S. economy is, by most accounts, rolling along. The current expansion is now in its 95th month. The economy has added payroll jobs for a record 79 months, and the unemployment rate is at 4.4 percent.
When expansions get longer, a few things happen. Banks, consumers, and companies all get more confident about their ability to handle debt, which leads to more credit being extended. At the same time, lenders seeking growth start to become more aggressive about putting money in the hands of people. Once all the people who can easily afford to purchase cars have taken car loans or mortgages, banks seek out more marginal borrowers in order to keep boosting their profits. And once credit gets distributed a little too widely, borrowers begin to default—even if nothing else changes in the economy or the climate for credit.
But something is changing. For the first time in a decade, the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates—thus increasing the cost of borrowing and servicing debt. Before December 2015, when the Fed boosted the federal funds rate from zero to 0.25 percent, it had been 9.5 years since the Fed last raised the interest rates it controls. The Federal Reserve has since raised rates in 0.25 percent increments twice. Yes, interest rates are still remarkably low, and the moves have been small. But it’s the direction that matters. For a decade, people in the economy had been conditioned to think that interest rates don’t really go up—and they borrowed and planned accordingly.
When interest rates were low and generally declining, people could refinance their way out of trouble. But when interest rates go up, it becomes harder to avoid trouble. And so as rates rise this deep in an economic cycle, it’s not surprising that the rate of financial failures is increasing. After hitting the lowest level since 2006 in the third quarter of 2016, mortgage delinquency rates rose in the fourth quarter to 4.8 percent. The delinquency rate on credit card loans, while still at a very low level, rose for three straight quarters in 2016. The volume of auto loans that are delinquent is rising rapidly. All these metrics will likely continue to rise.
In addition, it’s worth recalling that this recovery has been remarkably uneven. Amid the long expansions, there are always pockets of distress. So if you’ve extended credit aggressively in an area that is struggling to begin with, and interest rates start to rise, you’re likely to run into trouble quickly. Guaranty Bank, which failed in early May, lends primarily to lower- and middle-income people in urban areas, a demographic slice that hasn’t fully participated in the expansion. New Orleans’ First NBC Bank, the biggest failure so far this year, is a relatively new bank (founded 2006) that lent heavily to the oil and gas industry, which has been traumatized by persistently low prices.
None of this is to say we’re going to have a repeat of the financial crisis or there is any danger of a recession but the spate of failures should set off alarms. The forces that have helped turn the direction of delinquency rates around are still very much there. The business cycle continues to age, What’s more, a sudden increase in financial failures tends to push banks and other lenders to pull back credit and tighten lending terms—which means it will be harder for people to refinance their way out of trouble or ask for leniency.
The two biggest democracies have different perceptions and strengths to tackle the problem of growing NPA and sick financial institutions but we have seldom heard of failure of Banks in India that credits the US with more transparency and freedom for the institutions to decide future of their own. Yes the Indian system remains protective under the bigg Government umbrella
