Lists with This Book. I’m not much into management sorts of books, and considering that this was quite interesting. A narration by Bagchi about his life from which he drew out the lessons that he had learned along the way. Hence, the nuggets of wisdom that he tbe sprinkled through the book is not applicable just for work and for managers, but even to life itself.
Not a lot things that one won’t already know. However, he has this way of wrapping up those things in worldd sentences and it appealed to me. Also, it is he I’m not much into management sorts of books, and considering that this was quite interesting. Also, it is heartening to hear a person from the corporate speaking about values in black and white and taking a stand and such. I also liked the fact that worod book wasn’t preachy, nor was it a doling out success formula, but simply a story of a person and what he learned along the way.
What we want to draw from it is up to us. A quick and easy read.
Jul 16, Elson Joy added it. When you are continuously displaced, you make friends easily. You have low expectations from the unfamiliar; hence you are more pleasantly surprised than frustrated when faced with life’s many ups and downs. You explore everything around you, develop curiosity – new lands, customs, thee, and ways of doing things begin to draw you in. You learn to survive on the strength of who you are, just for this day, today.
You build ingenuity in order to survive. You trust strangers and hence, strangers trust you. You build intuitive capability to sniff trouble – which can tell you when to leave a bar!
You become an interesting person, because you have lots of stories to tell. Finally, you learn to move on. Seeing that I eas unable to comprehend, she knocked on the surface if the dining table, twice, gently and asked, ‘Where did the sound emanate from? Was it just my hand? No, it was the table replying to my knock. If I were to knock on any other surface, the sound will subroot very different, varied each time.
It is the way the seemingly inanimate world speaks to you. There is brhma in everything.

As long as you are willing to knock, even the inanimate will respond. Each time, without fail. Batchi there is shabda, there is brhma. Animate and inanimate are distinctions born of perception. In reality, everything is living. No other profession teaches you the true worth of your own abilities than a sales job. The reason is simple: Either you have made a sale or you have not.
Mitta I learnt that the first rule of managing is to listen. This is something most bosses find difficult to do because they do not know that in order to listen, you must first suspend all judgement. As chief technology officer of the corporation, Dr. Mitta was an epitome of accessibility.
The juniormost engineer could simply walk into his office, pull up a chair and sound out what could be sometimes the most absurd technical idea or a trivial pesonal issue. Mitta would always listen intently before offering his advice.
He also taught me the meaning of humility, that knowledge and arrogance are antithecal. To be a good leader, one must first be a good human being. Elliot Jacques first coined the term mid-life crisis in in a study of creative geniuses.
He found that during this period there are abrupt changes in lifestyle or productivity. It is accompanied by a desire for change brought on by fears and anxieties about growing old. In the Panchatantra, there is a story of a poor Brahmin who sees an old tiger in a forest. The tiger has a golden bangle in his paws and offers it to the man.
Go Kiss the World: Life Lessons For The Young Professional by Subroto Bagchi
The man is frightened and doesn’t want to go near the tiger. The tiger moans that he is too old to hunt and kill and is now at the end of his life.
He is toothless and his claws have all but fallen. The tiger wants to make penance by offering the bagle to a good man so that he can atone for a life of violence.
The animal sounds so genuine, the poor Brahmin pities the tiger; he believes the story. He enters the pond, only to get stuck in the mud.
The tiger promptly devours the Brahmin.
Who killed the man? Is it the tiger or the man’s greed? Many years later, I read Otto Scharmer’s book U Theory that reminded me of the sessions at the shore house. In many ways, our work during the two days was like travelling ‘through the U’ as Scharmer tells you – an experience of ‘sensing’ in the beginning as you travel down the U, ‘presencing’ as you settle at the bottom and then the experience of bagch as you move up the right side of the U.
The process is what he calls ‘leading from the future’.
As you move from sensing to presencing, you first learn to let go, before you can ‘let come’. Answers often jump out of the stillness of your mind.
Go Kiss the World: Life Lessons For The Young Professional
Uruguayan team’s air-crash case study: Flying over Argentina, the plane met with rough weather over the Andes and crashed and many aboard dies on a snowbound peak.
The people who were in the fuselage escaped miraculously as the rear section slid out on the snow. What followed is a tale of hope and hopelessness as the survivors went through a seventy-two-day ordeal during which they had to, at one stage, eat the flesh subrkto their dead compatriots in order to stay alive.
Through this real story of courage and determination, powerful leadership lesson emerged. Through the course of the crash and the return to civilization, those who finally made it underwent live lessons in leadership, emergent in a situational manner, witnessing power shifts within the group from one phase to the next.
Mother Teresa once said, ‘God does not require us to succeed, he only asks us to try. Unless the two are in harmony, there is inevitability of an organisation caving in kizs its own ambitions. Leaders need to view infrastructure at three levels: Never think of retiring,’ he repeated.
Go Kiss The World BA Summary – Geek Roll
But do not give up work. It is such a wasteful thought. All we need to do is to take a walk in a busy marketplace one morning and look at the number of daily wage earners who are looking for the opportunity to work. We do not realize how lucky we are to be kisd to get up in the morning and go to someplace where work awaits us. Open your mind before you open your mouth. Feb 16, JD rated it liked it Shelves: This is not a book about how MindTree to and its journey but this book is about Subroto Bagchi’s life experiences.
Its interesting to read how he got such a varied experience in Operations, Sales, Marketing, General M “Go Kiss the world” by Subroto Bagchi is nice book to read not only for person from IT industry but for person from any other professional world. Its interesting to read how he got such a varied experience in Operations, Sales, Marketing, General Management etc in his career and most importantly how a man who neither learn computers nor did any MBA, started India’s first Venture capital funded IT company.
But there is one thing which is missing from the book and that is how the MindTree “actually” started doing business. But there is no reference to how MindTree got their first client. Jul 29, Vamsi Sridhar rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book made me feel that adage “You don’t find the book, The book finds you” is indeed true.
Generally i find it an arduous task to complete an autobio but the bagcih narration of the book made this book an exciting read. One of the rare non-fiction books that i could not simply put down until it was finished.
