Pop ‘I will give you a chocolate if you study well’

Kid ‘I will give you two chocolates if you become serious at work and not take leaves as I do not know why you love to be so easy in life’

Pop is annoyed with this bluntness

Pop ‘this is not done.. I was trying to motivate you’

Mom ‘This is not the way you talk to elders..  you are a good kid.. say Sorry’

Kid ‘Mom.. I will say Sorry but let Pop say Sorry to his boss too’

Pop looks at his wife ‘you told him right that I am lazy and not taking life seriously’

Mom ‘No dear.. the kid is growing.. see’s you at work from home everyday and feels you are lazing’

Kid ‘mom.. study from home? does it exist.. I too wish to do that’

Mom ‘am not aware of this dear’

Kid ‘start one.. I will have my friends come too for the same.. keep watching something about startup.. you should start one.. money too available’

Pop looks zapped

Mom too

Mom ‘you are just 10 and talking like a prime minister’

Kid ‘I know .. I wanted to test if the prime minister really distributes money for startup or just talking.. ‘

Pop ‘I will not work from home dear’

Mom ‘I too am rushing for work.. please take food and study well’

Kid ‘Mom.. Will watch some comics too.. love you mom and dad’

Game Changer

The Prime Minister of a country decides a unique option to resolve the society mess.

A massive campaign begins..

‘THINK LIKE A PRIME MINISTER AND SOLVE A PROBLEM’

The entire media gets confused.. What could be the agenda of this VVIP Individual who has decided to empower all the people to log a problem and solve it too? and it carries a US$500 provided for small problem solutions, US$50000 for medium problem solutions and US$500000 for complex problems and US$5000000 for critical problems.

Is this a US game changer.. ? No it is in a developing country

Rule of games
1) Log problems
2) Each problem will be ranked by voters
3) Highest score problem will be awarded as per complexity
Provision of funds to solve 1200 small problems. 120 medium problems, 12 complex problems and 2 critical problems in a year = US$60000+US$6M+US$1.2M=US$1M = <10M investments for over 1334 problems… in a year..
It means a 50M$ investments for a 5 year road map…

Who is the entrepreneur here?
Need less to say a political entrepreneur? Mr Prime Minister

All are zapped of wits.. Is this country gone nuts.. Which Investor can attempt doing this? Who all? What complexities will come in money role off.

Industrialists begins brain storming… What if 50 Industrialists put 1$M each and invest.. It is a bigger advertisement outreach to promote their products in big way…

It catches attention of world media..

The country having population of 10000000 and calls for 10000000M$ = Just 10$ investment per individual..

Does it really work.. this model…?

Soon the Prime Minister is surrounded by investors wishing to pump in the money..

Investors 'Who gave this idea to you in first place'
Prime Minister is silent.. and then shows a blog..

Investors 'It is crazy.. A thought in a blog by a common man.. and you decide to implement it?'

Prime Minister 'Just a thought to attempt.. why not.. would you have invested in the blog owner?'

All remain silent…

Prime Minister 'Just because am a celebrity in own way.. hence it reached world news'

Investors 'Are you serious to implement?'

Prime Minister 'Game changers mean path breaking.. It is disruption and the blog is disruptive to our mind and thoughts.. Anything and everything is possible in the blog'

Investors 'Which blog?'

Prime Minister 'Let us get to work'
