Did you know that- the Japanese worker gets part of his salary as Patriotic allowance?
This is given to any employee who gives a suggestion to reduce raw material cost for a component so that it is not produced next time, for you to waste again. A part of the amount thus saved is given as Patriotic allowance to the employee.
After the terrible earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan here are some things the world should learn from them.10 things to learn from Japan
1. THE CALM Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
2. THE DIGNITY Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.
3. THE ABILITY The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.
4. THE GRACE People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.
5. THE ORDER No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.
6. THE SACRIFICE Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?
7. THE TENDERNESS Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.
8. THE TRAINING The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.
9. THE MEDIA They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.
10. THE CONSCIENCE When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly…(source: user mohanrao on 24.12.2013)Did you know that- the Japanese worker gets part of his salary as Patriotic allowance?

It’s a common grumble that politicians’ lifestyles are far removed from
those of their electorate. Not so in Uruguay. Meet the president – who
lives on a ramshackle farm and gives away most of his pay.
Laundry is strung outside the house. The water comes from a
well in a yard, overgrown with weeds. Only two police officers and
Manuela, a three-legged dog, keep watch outside. This is the residence of the president of Uruguay, Jose Mujica, whose lifestyle clearly differs sharply from that of most other world leaders.
President Mujica has shunned the luxurious house that the Uruguayan state provides for its leaders and opted to stay at his wife’s farmhouse, off a dirt road outside the capital, Montevideo.
Continue reading the main story “Start Quote I may seem a mad
and eccentric old man. But this is a free choice ”Jose Mujica The president and his wife work the land themselves, growing flowers. This austere lifestyle – and the fact that Mujica donates about 90% of his monthly salary, equivalent to $12,000 (£7,500), to
charity – has led him to be labeled the poorest president in the world.
“I’ve lived like this most of my life,” he says, sitting on an old chair in his garden, using a cushion favored by Manuela the dog. “I can live well with what I have.” His charitable donations – which benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs – mean his salary is roughly in line with the average Uruguayan income of $775 (£485) a month.
In 2010, his annual personal wealth declaration – mandatory
for officials in Uruguay – was $1,800 (£1,100), the value of his 1987
Volkswagen Beetle. All the president’s wealth – a 1987 VW Beetle
This year, he added half of his wife’s assets – land, tractors and a house – reaching $215,000 (£135,000). That’s still only about two-thirds of Vice-President Danilo
Astori’s declared wealth, and a third of the figure declared by Mujica’s predecessor as president, Tabare Vasquez. Elected in 2009, Mujica spent the 1960s and 1970s as part of
the Uruguayan guerrilla Tupamaros, a leftist armed group inspired by
the Cuban revolution.
He was shot six times and spent 14 years in jail. Most of his
detention was spent in harsh conditions and isolation, until he was
freed in 1985 when Uruguay returned to democracy.
Those years in jail, Mujica says, helped shape his outlook on life. Continue reading the main story Tupamaros: Guerrillas to government
*Left-wing guerrilla group formed initially from poor sugar cane workers and students
*Named after Inca king Tupac Amaru
*Key tactic was political kidnapping – UK ambassador Geoffrey Jackson held for eight months in 1971
*Crushed after 1973 coup led by President Juan Maria Bordaberry
*Mujica was one of many rebels jailed, spending 14 years behind bars – until constitutional government returned in 1985
*He played key role in transforming Tupamaros into a legitimate
political party, which joined the Frente Amplio (broad front) coalition
*Uruguay profile “I’m called ‘the poorest president’, but I don’t feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle, and always want more and more,” he says.
“This is a matter of freedom. If you don’t have many possessions then you don’t need to work all your life like a slave to sustain them, and therefore you have more time for yourself,” he says.
“I may seem a mad and eccentric old man. But this is a free choice.”
The Uruguayan leader made a similar point when he addressed the Rio+20 summit in June this year: “We’ve been talking all afternoon about sustainable development. To get the masses out of poverty. “But what are we thinking? Do we want the model of
development and consumption of the rich countries? I ask you now: what
would happen to this planet if Indians would have the same proportion of cars per household than Germans? How much oxygen would we have left?
“Does this planet have enough resources so seven or eight
billion can have the same level of consumption and waste that today is
seen in rich societies? It is this level of hyper-consumption that is harming our planet.”
Mujica accuses most world leaders of having a “blind obsession to achieve growth with consumption, as if the contrary would mean the end of the world”.
Mujica could have followed his predecessors into a grand official residence
But however large the gulf between the vegetarian Mujica and
these other leaders, he is no more immune than they are to the ups and downs of political life.
“Many sympathies with President Mujica because of how he lives. But this does not stop him for being criticized for how the government is doing,” says Ignacio Zuasnabar, a Uruguayan pollster.
The Uruguayan opposition says the country’s recent economic prosperity has not resulted in better public services in health and education, and for the first time since Mujica’s election in 2009 his popularity has fallen below 50%. This year he has also been under fire because of two
controversial moves. Uruguay’s Congress recently passed a bill which legalized abortions for pregnancies up to 12 weeks. Unlike his predecessor, Mujica did not veto it.
Instead, he chose to stay on his wife’s farm He is also supporting a debate on the legalization of the consumption of cannabis, in a bill that would also give the state the
monopoly over its trade. “Consumption of cannabis is not the most worrying thing, drug-dealing
is the real problem,”. he says. However, he doesn’t have to worry too much about his popularity rating – Uruguayan law means he is not allowed to seek re-election in 2014. Also, at 77, he is likely to retire from politics altogether before long. When he does, he will be eligible for a state pension – and unlike some other former presidents, he may not find the drop in income
too hard to get used to.

It’s been exactly one year now since God took dear mom from us. Very unfair on His part. Still seems like a nightmare, but alas, this one got real. One little infection and suddenly things began crashing. Couple of painful days and sleepless nights and everything changed forever. One year and we all can still feel her with us. Around us. We miss every little thing about her. An epitome of love, warmth, care. A teacher. A corrector and above all, a very loving mom. Maa. Mum. Mummy.
Every evening that I would come home, I would be shouting a hello. Loud. And hug her. She was always there. With a loving welcoming smile. Even though when she was confined to the wheel chair. Even when she was dazed after the painful dialysis sessions. Even if she was very unwell. She was always there. For me. For us. The loud hello still echoes as I enter but the smiling one is gone. Void felt. Hugs Missed. Terribly.
I have no complaints with God. Maybe that was an end to her sufferings. But the only thing I have for Him is, “Thora time aur ruk jaate. Thori baatein aur karne dete.”
The only solace is, we cannot see her, but I am sure she can. She cannot talk to us, but we can. And I do. Whether it’s a new project or a big problem solved. I keep talking to her. Lessens the pain. We can feel the aura. I just know she is around. But there are many doubts and queries in life that only she could answer. From simple ones like “what gift should we give them” to complex ones like “mom, what should I do in this situation”, there are moments in life only a mother can pull you out from.
Today I would just like to tell her, mom, wherever you are now, you will always be fondly remembered and greately greately missed. Forever.
Love you maa. And miss a you lot.
