The word veteran per se is so sacred and inspiring that it enriches a hapless heart with the strength of conviction and rays of optimism. Some of us have the inveterate tendency of linking the word veteran to the old age, whereas the connotation of the same is not necessarily so. Veterans are those peerless personalities who have grown senior in or have long experience of any office, position or any area of constructive activity; they indeed are jacks of many trades and masters of some. Years of odyssey in the school of this God-built world objectively bestow the perspicacity of mind, astuteness of intellect and discrimination of the judgment on the veterans – the honorable personages. These people undoubtedly know that great organizations are measured and evolved not by megalomania and stinginess (inexplicable cost-cutting) but by integrity, appreciation, ethics, empathy and attitude. They are well aware of the fact that the human resource is the most indispensable and worthy resource of any visionary organization.its natural tendencies to procrastinate.
Despite the spectacular wisdom that our veterans are so liberally equipped with, we are, I am afraid, helplessly witnessing a selfish breed of shortsighted pseudo-intellectuals adulterating the efficacious systems of our endearing organizations. Those selfish and ignoramus position-holders, masquerading as experts, are audaciously corrupting the backbone of our country like education system. The qualified, learned and productive employees are finding it arduous to perform ethically and optimally in this miasmic culture of enduring negativism. Whereas, the under-qualified people who are arrantly subservient, charlatan and sycophant are leaping to limelight by engaging every trick in the book against the competent ones. Why is it that the deserving candidates are encountering a Hobson’s choice of settling down for lowly and affected tasks vis-à-vis their qualifications and skills? Is it because a majority of our veterans are smitten by complacency and insecurity bug and have therefore taken the back seat in terms of constructive creation of fair, systematic, effective and efficient culture and systems? Are we really experiencing the inactivity of good veterans who have the caliber and wisdom of taking the defunct systems in their hands and changing it? The answer is a resounding YES.
Of course, it is the activity of bad people that corrupts an institution but more than that, it is the inactivity of good veterans that does more damage. Our societies today are afflicted by a crisis, and a crisis is never caused by faulty systems but the faulty people. No game is good or bad but the players make it so, in the same veins there is no bad organization or government but its authorities make it so. Majority of the seasoned position-holders who have the reins of the systems in their hands are rubbing the organizations the dooms way. Every move of those egocentric people is motivated by avarice and ulterior motives. They are leaving no stone unturned in depriving the capable aspirants of what they actually deserve by bamboozling and daunting them. They have made the social ills like rule-violation, corruption, nepotism, jealousy, lip service, indifference, antipathy etc the order of the day.
A stupendous void has occurred in our society because of the dearth of experienced ones who have the courage of standing firm on values and compromise on the petty matters. Our youth is tired of being actively misguided by bad leaders; it is now desperately craving for active guidance by good leaders. We all are fed up by the coward and autocratic breed of people who are exploiting us for their personal gains. We are urgently seeking out for the people-centric leaders like Andrew Carnegie, Peter Drucker, Jack Welch, Charles Schwab and Lee Iacoca etc. Majority of the workforce is disgruntled with the troublemakers who have never learnt to obey but are ever ready to command. It is henceforth the high time for the veterans, who are soaked in human values and people welfare, to steal the show and snatch the baton from the barbarians of the society. The current generation as well as the posterity is making an earnest appeal to the veterans with a profound blend of head and heart to stop sitting on the fence and plunge into serious work. They shouldn’t exhibit fatalistic attitude or be pessimistic about the seemingly incorrigible state of affairs. With the force of ripe age, right knowledge and coveted virtues they can move heaven and earth to purge the workplace and bring peace, prosperity and justice to the deserving stakeholders. The charisma of their longstanding experience and deep-rooted ethical stance will surely bring about the much sought-after transition in our country.vv
The time for the empathetic, altruistic, philanthropic and pro-change veterans is now. Let them bid goodbye to the people who prefer leisure over work but are stuck to the chairs like pests. The veterans should act their age and position, take the responsibility, fill the bigger boots and manage by walking around (MBWA philosophy). They should muster up massive will and shouldn’t worry about ways in which this daunting mission can be accomplished for where there is a will there surely is a way.
