I have always been a happy victim of choosing the greater good . It’s a big trouble at my age to make decisions that are ethical and eventually helpful for me in the future . Of all the things that I am , I can’t be hypocritical. What I say needs to be reflected in my actions as well .
For years , I used to write articles about how our talent leaves the country and then goes on making the other nation great . When I reached that decision making point in my point , I faced some major confusion in my own head . I had aspirations for quite a few courses abroad . And yes there were admission confirmations as well . But something inside of me kept telling and shouting to me that I need to be here ! I need to change things here back in India . Maybe I can’t bring a massive change but atleast I can atleast die in peace that I contributed towards it . And my work with Honda Cars engages me with the supplier network and I work with my team on risk assessment ( IR and production risk)! Feels like I am contributing to a change in the manufacturing industry. It is also my dream to be here in this company and change the men to women ratio in manufacturing.
And more than anything Lean In , is a constant reminder in my life of the potential that exists in this country for moving and changing for the good !
I have and will always choose the greater good .
Yes , I face criticism from my family , from my peers and from my seniors as well !
But the right ones do support.
After all the question isn’t who is going let me ? The question is who is going to stop me .
