Is the food security bill / ordinance what the UPA government claims it is? Why have they chosen the ordinance route for this bill? Is the government sure about hte number of poor in the country that are to be benefited by the implementation of the bill?
The planning commission of India has yet again redefined the poverty line in the country. This time they have stooped to yet lower levels to show the UPA government’s performance in poverty alleviation by showing the sharpest decline in poverty in the past 9 years.

The amount of automation in the factory is negligible when compared to the other mass market car manufacturing plants. The utmost care and deliberation that goes into the production of each car simply blew my mind away.
Creativity is the mother of invention. And that is what is taking the world by storm in the near history. Invention in the true sense is creating something that was not present in the past. And that is possible on by the imaginative powers an individual possesses. So, only creativity or only imagination can not be the abilities on which one can reach the pinnacles of success.

After having a look at the info-graphic above, you would most certainly ask me how does it apply to blogging. Well, this applies to blogging for sure.

Well, it took me time and became clear once I read the book – the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. The first chapter of the book describes about Paradigms and Principles and details how a paradigm shift can give a person an altogether different perspective of a thing that he or she envisioned in a totally different light. And that is exactly what happened. I too realized that the principles of lean can be applied to anything and everything in life and hence to blogging too. And here it is.

Matters would have been a lot better had there not been graphic ads in the form of banners found in between the content and at strategic locations that attract your attention away from the content you were trying to find.
So I am starting a new series on blogging – Lean Blogging Series and this is the introduction.
