Let’s call him Raja. Yes, so we have Raja who is from a decent family and is at the point of making a life decision. The decision is to get employed or to become an employer. Raja can join his father in the business of manufacturing imitation jewelry or get a corporate job like many of his friends. Now our Raja is contemplating.

Whenever he talks, everyone listens and then there is this other (designated) leader, whose perception is like that of the famous ‘Hari Sadu’ the ever unhappy, always grumpy, questioning, blaming and full of excuses (read “reasons” to sound polite). What makes these two people different? Is it the situation they operate in?
