Saluting these 'migratory birds'

india Updated: Jan 09, 2007 18:59 IST

Migratory birds have stronger wings and the will of steel because they fly thousands of miles to benefit from the distant land and despite being an alien they can feed on the local prey. They are better exposed, have seen the world, survived in different climates and thrived globally.

Their credentials are universal and their might globally recognised.

The local species has not grown because of its merit but because of the conglomeration and patronage from the “spoils of war”. The local species is omnipresent and omnipotent in as divergent fields as textiles, oil, real estate, telecommunications and finance sectors.

Migratory birds flock to “land of opportunities” by creating it, shaping it and enjoying the fruits of their entrepreneurial enterprise. They rule the world.

Sometimes, they are born in “garages” and rise to be global players and do not belong to the dynastic empires who claim expertise in manufacturing anything from trucks to salt and shampoo, whatever their dynastic politicians (fourth generation) and bureaucrat friends can provide them and protect it for them for a hefty price.

Some of these migratory birds are the right-hand men of the second richest man on earth in Wall Street or sometimes these migratory birds sell their enterprise for $100 of millions to the richest man of the earth who has $50 billion net worth which is more than the GDP of any Indian state.

Sometimes this migratory bird controls the world production of steel by being the third richest man in the world even surpassing the Queen of England. Sometimes they produce the most exclusive sound systems and speakers that even Japanese wish to emulate, to excel.

The migratory birds will always create their own “silicon valleys”, their “Beverley hills”, and their own “casinos in the middle of the desert”. One needs a “mind-bend” to understand them and catch up with them.

Success lies in flowing with the flow of these migratory birds and letting these birds chase and realise their ambition. The future of humanity and human innovation lies in these migratory birds. They will conquer disease (AIDS, cancer, etc.), reduce distances (internet, optic fibre, travel at the speed of thought) and improve quality of human experience on earth.
