The 7 Calls You Need to Make Now

first_imgChallenging Client: You know the client that pushes you to improve your results, the one who wants your very best performance. They nag you non-stop to do something about the systemic issues your industry experiences. They want you to be more resourceful and come up with something. Call them and see what’s on their mind.Dream Client: The biggest prospective client. The one you have pursued for years with no movement. Your competitor has them now, and they’ve kept them locked down for ages. You are never going to win their business if you don’t do something. Make that something a phone call.Lost Client: I know. They said they would never use you again after the problems you caused them. Never is a lot longer than most people understand. Time heals all wounds, and in many cases, the wounded has moved on and doesn’t work for your lost client anymore. Never can only be never is you give up. Call them and ask for a do-over.Best Client: When was the last time you thanked your very best client for being just that? When was the last time you told them you are grateful that they trust you with their business? Ask for nothing. Don’t talk for a long time either. Just call to let them know you are grateful for them.Best Mentor: There is someone who provided you with the right advice at the right time. They were there when you need some help and some guidance. Pick up the phone and call them to tell them how they improved your life. If you can and you will, tell them you intend to pay it forward.The One Who Needs Help: There is someone you know that needs your help. They need someone to care. Something as little as a well-timed call can help turn someone around. Make the call and do something to help.last_img read more

Wedding bells finally ring in newly-electrified Rajasthan village

first_imgWedding bells rang for 19-year-old Urmila in the nondescript Rajghat village of Rajasthan’s Dholpur district earlier this month, on the day the villagers cast their votes for Lok Sabha election, shortly after electricity reached the village. The small village with a population of 350 had been living in darkness since Independence.The village, which shares its name with Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial Rajghat in Delhi, falls in the Chambal river basin region on the Rajashan-Madhya Pradesh border, which is a forest area. Because of the technical glitch of its location within the Municipal Council’s jurisdiction, the rural settlement was deprived of the benefits of schemes designed for panchayats.Electricity has arrived in Rajghat through a transformer installed by the State government after sustained efforts of a medical student and his friends, who have launched a campaign for improving the living conditions of villagers for the last four years with the help of donors and crowdfunding. The group also undertook a social media drive with hashtag #SaveRajghat.Urmila’s wedding took place after sunset on May 6 and a feast was given to the villagers and the baraat (marriage party), belonging to Agra district, for the first time in the midst of lights all around them. The poor villagers rejoiced at the ceremony, as the power discom officials promised to lay the lines to connect all the 39 households in the village with electricity supply.Crusader’s effortsSituated on the banks of Chambal river, barely five km away from Dholpur town, the small and dusty Rajghat village has no roads, water pipelines or basic medical facilities. The lone government primary school has only a few students. Ashwani Parashar, an MBBS student in Sawai Man Singh Government Medical College in Jaipur and a native of Dholpur, took up the task in 2015 along with his fellow students to provide basic amenities to the villagers.During the last four years, a kuchcha access road and community toilets were constructed, solar lamps supplied and reverse osmosis water filters installed with the help of donors. The power connection is the latest achievement of the group of students, who have also distributed utility items and clothes among the poor in the village.The villagers living in the vicinity of the river still have no access to clean drinking water. Urmila’s father Deendayal Nishad told The Hindu on Monday that the villagers bring polluted water directly from Chambal, where animal carcasses can be seen floating, and clean it with the help of filters. Though girls from Rajghat are married off to other places, the boys face difficulty in getting married, as no parents are willing to marry their daughters in the village because of its pathetic state. In May last year, when Pawan Kumar, 23, got married in Rajghat, the villagers were witnessing such a wedding after a gap of 22 years.last_img read more
