Why wait for an year to take a test, you can take a test any day of your choosing, and I will be prepared... Thats the essence of Karam Kiye jaao... I will work to the best of my abilities... and rest is in Gods Hands... unfortunately, we focus more on Gods Hands and less on "Karm Kiye Jaao". He says... Do your best and leave the rest to me... But we focus more on manipulating the REST rather than focussing on doing our BEST.. Because we have seen people who do so, succeed, though that success is temporary.

Guess its getting too long ...
Knowledge is undoubtedly invaluable. Absolutely no second though about that.

However, knowledge in your own head is nothing better than a library full of books!! Knowledge is useless if it is not used properly. Unfortunately, unless you score properly in exam, you are not given a single chance to prove your great knowledge. Why all those great Indian inventors are mostly NRIs? Why we have just one Kalam?

Talent is good but a talent in guided path is far better. I would not let my kid to grow on his own and show his natural talent, rather I will let him go through the path defined.

Thousands of people miss the obvious in this shloka. The word "phal" means "fruit", which denotes consequences, NOT goals! Nowhere does Shri Krishna imply that you should be aimless; on the contrary, your aim is SUPPOSED to be your "dharma".. or "duty". You may have goals, plans, actions; you may become extremely skilled and/or resourceful; you may be dedicated to a career - all that is normal. Arjun was the BEST warrior in the world!

ALL SHRI KRISHNA IS SAYING IS, you do not have an automatic RIGHT to EXPECT a certain result!!! There are other forces at work in this universe. Don't worry about them! Do your duty!! Let the chips fall where they may!!!! Whether you get what you want or you don't, it's all Krishna's will.. you don't need to get emotionally wrapped up around it.
I don't know what exactly Krishna told, what exactly was captured in Gita or what really he meant. If he really meant consequences then I agree with him to certain extend as long as the consequences are not bad. If the consequences are bad in context then I would say, you must know about the consequences too and act accordingly. If you are working and your boss gave a horrible rating, you can definitely slap him right away. Absolutely nothing stops you from doing that ... but you must know the consequences and act only if the worst consequences are acceptable to you.... don't say ke Krishna ne bola tha!!

There are many things where we never think of any return such as you love your parents or your parents love you ... but there are many things which does not make too much sense unless there are some phals. For example, if you ask me to go to GGN to GZB, I will not go. If you pay me Rs 1000 then I may not go but someone else will happily go. If you give me Rs 50000, then probably I will also go no matter carfew laga hua hain ki nehin ... but probably Kumarbhai will not go!!

The point I am driving is, definition of phal is different to different people and it depends on context

I am happy to have this brainstorming and, crux of the matter is, do your best, know your path, have goals but not get too happy or too sad about it.

As I pointed out earlier, “Nowhere does Shri Krishna imply that you should be aimless” and “you do not have an automatic RIGHT to EXPECT a certain result”.

I hope to get more insights on original question from the Thread owner. ..

Does anybody have any idea of setting up a sports bar/pub in Tier 2 city in India..

1.)Any specific approvals need to be taken and do they come easy.
2.) Profitability of these pubs
3.) Any surprises which one should be aware of.
4.) Last but not the least could it be good business proposition.
5.) Capital requirement

Brother, almost any investment in India with a balanced portfolio will yield you 11% returns or more, with yearly withdraws possible in certain cases, and a higher lock in period in other cases:

1. Gold and silver with FD
2. Investment with certain builders on security of their existing inventory (agreement in your name)- a couple of friends of mine have got between 18-24% and are very happy rotating part of their surplus funds in this manner.
3. Buy land in the new residential zones in Delhi- at prevalent prices which are cheaper than far off Delhi suburbs (i have interest in this as I have already bought land in zone P2, and have been joined by 26 other friends and relatives and we are looking for filling up the remaining vacant slots for commencement of construction).
4. The Indian stock market- selected scrips with selected timings.

Thanks for your POV. I have asked the similar question in gurgaon thread as well against your post. So what is the ongoing price of plots in delhi new sectors . Would you mind sharing how much does it costs/per acre and what is the way to get into some apartment or plots in new delhi sectors..

What businesses do you guys think could be done where one is not involved full time. I am looking for some business alternatives where I can start investing my time right now.. and after couple of years can retire with the earnings of the business.

Any suggestions ?
