Psychology teaches us that people can live with anything and everything till the time they feel a sense of control over their lives. Even in the most adverse of circumstances, this emotion of being in-charge can do wonders and is perhaps responsible for miraculous tales of human survival that emerge out of calamities.

In the previous piece, I had referred to the increasing difficulty for an ordinary citizen to identify whether the medicine strip he has just bought is generic or branded as the packaging for both is almost similar, or at times, is almost a carbon copy of each other. Stakeholders, are unwilling to come on record, except perhaps the patients, who are unfortunate enough to have to bear with the exorbitant pricing of almost all kinds of medicines everywhere.

Human history has been a web of revolutions. From the times when thought and life seemed to stand still in the early modern world (except for local wars and disease that wiped out populations) to an era when we had the advent of the industrial revolution in the UK in the 1760s, the pace of change has been slow and gradual.

The internet economy has created several new jobs and concepts. One such concept is hacking, a profession that is only now gradually making its way to the mainstream, where people are running companies that offer solutions aimed at securing an organisation’s entire online infrastructure and data.

Going to court and settling disputes remains a scary thought for most of us. Even as we respect and honour the judicial system, the presumption always is — unfair perhaps — that settling any civil dispute in court should be the last option.

What is the most coveted hard-skill in employees? The answer in today’s multimedia and fast-paced world has to be the ‘ability to organise and make sense of information’.
