tigers or donkeys- comments needed




Personality traits of Tiger like person.     Tigers are a strong and fearless people who are respected for their courage. Tigers make great leaders and will stand up and fight for what they believe in. Charming and magnetic, many find the Tiger difficult to resist. While they can be considered self-serving at times, the Tiger is also a creature of giving and generosity.

The same warmth and urgency that drives the passion of the Tiger causes some conflict. Hard working and enthusiastic, the Tiger will usually take over a project or task completely in their eagerness to finish it. Money is never the goal of the Tiger, only success in a given endeavor. The Tiger not only wishes to complete a given task, but also do it right the first time. This pride in work translates into wealth for the Tiger when they need it most.

As passionate, fire driven creatures, the Tiger are intense lovers and pros at dating. Tigers burn hot with passions and romance but will have a hard time to keep this intensity under control, which can spell danger for a lover.

Personality traits of Donkey like person.      Donkeys bond hard with their owner and very common are one person animals. They may ‘tolerate’ those that aren’t their owners, but usually will just work for that one person once this happens. They have to

trust you do what you are asking, that’s where the ‘stubbornness’ comes in.

They aren’t stubborn, they are highly intelligent animals and unless they can mentally understand why you are asking what you want, and if it’s safely in their best interest… you better be a good negotiator. They will never do anything to harm themselves, they have to think things through, which are why for every one hour of horse training, about 3 more go into donkey training.

They are sober, domestic animal and can share space comfortably with cows, buffaloes

Why people like Tigers more than Donkeys.  The reasons can be easily understood as we are driven by glamour more than other reasons. The tiger has personality, speed, agility, fierce, sturdy, strong, king of the jungle & an independent animal as compared to a simple, docile, intelligent, friendly animal like Donkey. Be it a functioning of organization or sports, it is the tiger which will make or a battle or a match.

Is Tiger an answer for all Our Requirements?            No certainly not. Tigers are definitely born leaders but we need to have Donkeys to propel the war or team machinery to victory. So, in almost all organization wherever we work, whenever we are under somebody we should be like Donkeys and whenever we are leading a group we have to display characteristics of a Tiger.

What we are a Tiger, a Donkey or something else? As we think towards the animals and their characteristics. Human Beings processes a complex mixture of many different animals. As far as to be a good leader and a follower is concerned there is I think a proportion of both the characteristics needed. A slight variation and adoption to the type of role we are performing in an organization will go a long way in deciding our fate and effectiveness for the role we play.  So, in spite of the glamour associated with tiger, a good proportion and like-a Donkey personality is good.

As you read the blog, check out the usefulness of Donkeys to humans and the latest news is the Donkey milk is very good nourishment for all of us. It is sold at a whopping Rs 2000/ litre in Andhra Pradesh.

So, start liking Donkeys and don’t ridicule or insult a donkey.


Need for uniform speed breakers

Over the last 6 months, i happen to cover about 5000 km by road , passing through a number of states. During this entire journey, i have been to the state of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharastra, Goa, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Certainly the condition of road depends on whether we are travelling on Express Highway, NH, AH (Asian Highway), State Highway or District Roads. One thing which stands out common is non uniformity of speed breakers, infact it can be called as vehicle breakers. Express highways are well planned.

There are different types of speed breakers which i have encountered which are by design and by accident. By accident i meant the craters which developed due to rain, bad maintanence etc. Speed breakers by design implies the different types of speed breakers which are made to ensure that the vehicle speed of a vehicle plying on a particular road reduces by the extent desired.

The designed speed breakers which are encountered are the one with a very big mount , having six- seven smaller mounts,  and of course the gentle ones. Overall there is no standarisation for speed breakers. Several times, the driver doesn’t know about a speed breaker unless he encounters one.

This calls for correct signaling mechanism of speed breakers, and a method  which clearly tell driver to reduce speed. Like there is a need to display speed breaker ahead atleast 500m before its approach , white lumninous paint on the speed breakers. There can be only two varieties of speed breakers, one which reduces speed of vehicle to say 15 kmph and the other one to about 30 kmph.

This standardization will certainly go a long way in increasing the overall life  and an effective speed reduction mechanism of vehicles.
