No Job Is Small or Big; It Is the Way in Which You Do Makes It Small or Big
I was born in a middle-class family. I was schooled in small towns of old Madhya Pradesh. Thanks to my mother who taught me basics very early with her meager qualification of just primary education, where of course she was a topper. My father was in the State Government service. I have fond memories of my childhood. Once I was given an opportunity to deliver a lecture on “Goswami Tulsidas” representing the primary school which fetched me a medal. I clearly remember the process of overcoming the stage fear in that big Town Hall packed with elders where I was feeling too small. I little realized then that it would be at the bottom of a long series of invited lectures and standing ovations at international forums in 5-continents including my lead speeches at the United Nations, Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the World Bank etc. and 20 professional awards.
