In December 2006, Abhishek Singh launched the first 90 generics in the pharma isolated market of Lebanon. In its first year these cost effective generics received more than 1 million users who could not afford branded medicines in their own county. This new avenue of choice was built entirely by Abhishek Singh, 21-year-old with no previous extensive work expertise in pharmaceuticals industry. According to CNBC, Singh learned everything he needed to know through practical experience at pharma manufacturing units, and proposed to develop 4,000 generics in the next decade as a core goal. One interesting bit of news that really got my attention this week was that of Abhishek Singh, the 21-year-old millionaire (yes, millionaire at 21!), who sold his New Generics to much in need countries such as Lebanon, Brazil, Senegal for millions! It’s quite an interesting story actually: Abhishek Singh started using the computer at 9, and began visiting his father pharma plants from 1999 when he was 11 – back when the concept of generic medicine was quite new in the market and India was known to only make copy products which are out of patent. Abhishek Singh’s first ‘success’ was with Tacrolimus Capsules, an immunosuppressive drug used mainly after allogeneic “organ transplant” to lower the risk of organ rejection. This generic launch was as quite popular – so much so that this was tendered by almost 28 countries in a span of 4 years till the new bio-similar sirolimus Capsule. Abhishek Singh was offered $300,000 from a Turkey based venture capital funding billionaire for Tacrolimus; to sell its technology with full rights. He refused this money, along with the feedback and criticism that selling such right of a bio-similar which was already not affordable in India; would further mean deprivation access to such life saving medicines. The Globe and Mail from Canada ran a cool story on the 21 year old’s rise in fame, as well as some unique advice offered to the young entrepreneur/ young millionaire. Worth a read! Abhishek Singh’s who is satisfied with his company’s current global exposure; highlights that it’s very easy get investment in pharma company; however, if greedy investors are allowed on the board of noble pharma companies; the greed always leads to drug price manipulation and then even though a company may become large scale, but essential purpose and motto of A.K.Singh from Taj Pharma may be defeated; human kind shall not make money from/at the cost essential life saving medicines and access to medicine shall be basic human right.

The Butterfly- SHORT STORY

The Butterfly- SHORT STORY

The Butterfly- SHORT STORY

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force
its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress.
It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.
So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and
snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily.
But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that,
at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support
the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the
butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and
shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the
restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through
the tiny opening were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly
into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom
from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives.
If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles,
it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been.

We could never fly!

Lessons to be learnt :
When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
Nothing in life is always smooth-sailing nor goes according to plan, hardships are there to mould us into stronger individuals.
Life is constantly about overcoming challenges, it’s only through tough times that we became more resilient

 

“I AM SORRY ”- SHORT STORY

“I AM SORRY ”- SHORT STORY

“I AM SORRY ”- SHORT STORY

Once there was a man who had 3 daughters and was a single parent to his children. One morning he asked his oldest daughter,

Sonia, to do the breakfast dishes before going to school. Not realizing that she was already running late and facing too many
tardy notices, he was stunned by her reaction. She burst into profuse tears. Again, misinterpreting the motive behind the outburst,
assuming that she was merely trying to get out of an unpleasant chore, he demanded that she dry her tears and get back to work
immediately. She reluctantly obeyed him, but her anger could be clearly heard in the careless clanking of the dishes in the sink,
she turned back to her father and stared sullenly out the window. Usually the man use to take advantage of the uninterrupted time
to spend with his children while driving them to school by teaching poetry or religious verses. However that morning there was
no songs- only deathly, stubborn silence. The man dropped his daughter, mumbled a good bye and moved to office. He tried to work
but couldn’t concentrate all he could see was his daughter’s scared, tear-stained face as she hesitantly climbed out of the car to
face her teachers and classmates.
The man began to realize that his timing had gone wrong and with the passage of the day he began to feel remorseful.
So he decided to say SORRY to his daughter and couldn’t wait till suppertime to apologize.
So he took permission from the school to take his daughter for lunch and was astonished to see the surprise on her face. He led her by her
arm through the corridor and as the doors banged behind them, he turned towards his daughter and said, “Sonia I am sorry.
I am so very sorry! It’s not that I shouldn’t have asked you to help out at home, but I had no right on it this morning without
any previous warning. I upset you at a time when you most needed my love and support- just before you went to school.
And I let you go without saying ‘I love you’. I was wrong. Please forgive me.”

Sonia put her arms around her father’s neck and hugged him and said “Oh, Dad, of course I forgive you. I love you too.”
The power of these restorative words, “I am Sorry!” is such that they heal relationships
– between us and our friends and loved ones, and between us and God.

Lessons to be learnt :
“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered.
Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.”

Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year 2017

 

Growing Good Corn

Growing Good Corn

Growing Good Corn

There once was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won a blue ribbon.
One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it.
The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.
“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field
to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn.

If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

He is very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor’s corn also improves.

So it is with our lives. Those who choose to live in peace must help their neighbors to live in peace.
Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.
And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.

The lesson for each of us is this: if we are to grow good corn, we must help our neighbors grow good corn.

It is possible to give away and become richer!
It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything.
Yes, the liberal man shall be rich! By watering others,
he waters himself.

Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year 2017

STORY OF A BLIND GIRL.

STORY OF A BLIND GIRL.

STORY OF A BLIND GIRL.
There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend.
He was always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she could see everything, including her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend asked her, “now that you can see the world, will you marry me?”
The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him.
Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying:

“Just take care of my eyes dear.”

This is how human brain changes wen the status changed. Only few remember wat life was before,
and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations.

Happy New Year 2017
