ममता के गढ़ को ध्वस्त करने की बीजेपी की जबरदस्त तैयारी

क्या पश्चिम बंगाल में क्या खिलेगा कमल 


कोरोना काल में विपक्ष के लगातार आलोचना का शिकार हो रही बीजेपी ने बिहार चुनावों के साथ उप चुनावों में शानदार जीत हासिल करके विपक्ष को एक बार फिर कमजोर साबित कर दिया है। इस जीत के बाद बीजेपी का हौसला 7वें आसमान पर है तो दूसरी तरफ विपक्ष अपनी हार पर केवल मंथन करने के सिवाय कुछ नहीं कर पा रहा है।

पिछले कुछ समय से बीजेपी ने ममता बनर्जी के गढ़ कहे जाने वाले पश्चिम बंगाल में अपनी जमीनी ताकत मजबूत क

रने में लगी हुई है और इसका प्रमाण 2019 के लोकसभा चुनावों में मिल चुका है और इसके बाद पंचायत चुनावों में बीजेपी ने अच्छी जीत हासिल करके ममता के गढ़ में सेंध मार दी है।

अगले साल बंगाल में विधानसभा चुनाव होने जा रहे हैं और बीजेपी चुनावों से पहले बंगाल को जीतने के लिए जबरदस्त तैयारी शुरू कर दी है। सूत्रों की माने तो चुनावों से पहले बीजेपी के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष के साथ कई बड़े मंत्री हर महीने बंगाल

का दौरा करेंगे। अगर बीजेपी बंगाल में वोट प्रतिशत के साथ सीटों की संख्या बढ़ाने में कामयाब होती है तो विधनासभा जाने का सफर ममता के लिए बहुत मुश्किल भरा हो जाएगा।

बंगाल चुनावों से पहले बीजेपी ने यह ऐलान कर दिया है कि वह इस बार बंगाल में कमल खिलाएगी और बंगाल का विकास करने के साथ सभी केन्द्र की सरकारी योजनाओं का लाभ देगी जो उसे अभी तक नहीं मिल पाया है।

Chaitanya Pandey Speaks About Post-Lockdown Golf

In conversation with Digpu, Golf prodigy Chaitanya Pandey talks at length about the impact of COVID-19 on golf, how is the sport expected to open post lockdown and his personal sports regime.

With the world in lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the casualties has been sports which had to take a back seat due to government-imposed travel restrictions and new laws on social distancing. Golf has been one of the sports most affected with courses shut up. One such golfer has been rising Indian star 8-year-old Chaitanya Pandey, whose meteoric rise to the top of his sport has been halted by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are the takeaways about Digpu discussion with Chaitanya Pandey on golf and life after the lockdown ends.

What is the extent of the impact of Covid19 on Golf ?

The obvious answer is that because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government lockdown, we are currently barred from playing or practicing the game. Courses are closed, many of them have had to lay-of staff and are just operating with a skeleton crew.

Some groups have been hard hit financially by the shutdown as well, particularly caddies who rely on golf for the day-to-day work and do not have any other income. There are also many casual workers like greenkeepers who have seen their income dry up overnight.

At the same time all tournaments have been cancelled, and it is by no means clear when events will be staged again.  I was due to take part in some big events in Europe & USA, i.e European Championship, IMG Academy Junior World Championships in San Jose, FCG Callaway World Championship & US Kids Golf World Championship but because of the pandemic I am not participating.

When competitive golf does return, it is likely to be completely different than it was before. Social distancing will need to be maintained, spectators may not be allowed to watch events in any numbers for months, possibly years to come, and there will be many health and safety precautions.

What would you do once the golf courses are open for play?

The first thing I would do is hit some balls again just for the pleasure and freedom of being able to do so. After months in lockdown, the fact of being on a golf course again will be a pleasure in itself. After I had got over the novelty, I would then go back to practising my swing and my short game again, but, in the first instance, being back on the course would be enough. One thing that golfers need to be careful of when they return to action is not to try and overexert themselves the first time they get back on a course.

How are you staying with the game during lockdown?

I am fortunate to have a small golf studio at my home so I am able to practice my swing and also work on my short game. I have also been doing stretching, yoga, meditation and running to stay fit. I love to watch videos and films of the top professionals, so I can learn more about their game and pick up tips and techniques to try and adopt when we are all able to start playing again. I also try and stay in touch with my coach Rohit Bose over Zoom. He continues to give me tips and advice and helps me stay motivated and focused on my game.

Tell us about your routine during lockdown?

Before I start my day, I try and exercise and run for 30 minutes on tread mill to get both my mind and body up and running. I like to stay on top of my schoolwork as it always come first for me. I am doing 5 -6 online classes conducted by my school on weekdays plus home assignment.  An hour of Yoga and Meditation helps me to stay calm and focused. Evening hours I love to dedicate to my game which comprises of hitting 200 balls and short game.
I am an avid reader so read lot of different kind of books and practice and compose music on my guitar. Lastly spend time with my family watching movies etc.

What is your advice to everyone in context to the present times?

Obey the government guidelines, stay safe and follow the rules. This is a really difficult time for all of us but we are all in this together, so we just have to be patient and wait until the situation is under control. One of the advantages of playing a game like golf is that it teaches you to be mentally strong. I think you just have to regard the health pandemic as like having a bad round of golf. It is bad for a while but does not let it shake your confidence. Tomorrow is another day and hopefully, you can strike the ball better then.

Turn recession into an opportunity, says Abhijit Adhya

Turn recession into an opportunity, says Abhijit Adhya

In conversation with Digpu, Abhijit Adhya talks at length about the top 5 things to be done by organisations to survive through this ordeal and emerge victorious through this COVID-19 pandemic.

He believes we can turn the recession into an opportunity with responsive agility. Abhijit Adhya, a pro bono consultant on Business Transformation, Corporate Leadership and Change Management, is currently the Director, Business Transformation at GI, (UK) Global Delivery Centre in India, he leads the firm’s global Results Delivery practice, helping the organization get all it can out of major change efforts. He works closely with the Board of Directors on all aspects of the transformation process—from structuring, orchestrating, and enabling the change, to energizing the transformation and helping senior leadership lead these challenging efforts.

Abhijit has travelled extensively across the globe working with fortune 500 organizations in numerous industries on a
broad range of domains as Operations & Program Management, Transitions, Business Development, Marketing
Client Services.

Abhijit  says, “We have already stepped into a massive transformation which is going to shape the way we have been
doing business. We are standing up to change, and change is an open door for propels. Hence, we have the decision
to embrace change or succumb to it. The biggest question, standing at this juncture for any organization, is thinking
– what next?”

Here are excerpts from our conversation with Abhijit about the Top 5 things to turn the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent recession into an opportunity.

1. Over Communicate

In tough times like these, it is natural to get anxious about what is ahead of us and panic. Sometimes certain
decisions are made, anticipating worst of the worst situations when the facts are quite different. The magic lies in
communication. Communicate more than usual with your employees and your stakeholders. Over communication is
ok during these times. It helps instil confidence and provides enough time for the leadership to gauge the situation
with facts and take appropriate decisions.

2. Leaner Operating Cost Vs Cost Cutting

No, they are not the same! Adopting a leaner model will keep the business on its toes, keep bringing down the
operating costs linearly & keeps the company afloat with consistent quality of work. After the covid-19 situation
there will be a paradigm shift in the definition of workplaces. Remote working will take priority. Looking at real
estate costs, electricity and other ancillary costs associated with owning an office space, people may invest in shared
office spaces if required.

Letting go of employees is a common phenomenon during any recession time. Question is how would you determine who to let go? Would it depend on one’s performance or would it depend on staff who are drawing higher salaries?

What about loyal unproductive staffs who has been with the organization for many years? It is tough.
Start “Rightsizing” by making a list of critical functions and staffs working on it. Identify the consistent top & bottomperformers based on data. Identify roles which can be contracted out. Take decision accordingly. Never ever decide to lay off an employee based on higher remuneration only, as the remuneration was probably offered to the
incumbent due to a skillset and experience that the person brought on table. Alternatively, you may also look at
reducing salary for all staffs irrespective of band & designation, postpone promotions & increments for a greener time.

3. Invest In Artificial Intelligence

It is no more a question of whether an organization would want to invest and embrace AI or not. It is a question of
when? Start with identifying tasks which are repetitive. That is the easiest ones to get automated. This technology is
here to shape how future shall look like. If an organization engages the machine learning & AI technology, it has the capability to automate not only most tasks which are repetitive but also tasks which follows logic.
A forced down time is a particularly good opportunity to train your staffs and upgrade your organization
technologically. Start looking at start-ups or established companies who are providing such solutions. Talk and get
demonstration from a few before deciding.

4. Be Reasonable With Marketing And PR Budget

Curtailing Marketing budget completely, is a disaster. Organizations that curtail their marketing efforts during a
monetary downturn are really risking their long- haul piece of the overall industry. Consistent, reliable, and
persistent marketing is the only kind that is truly effective.

Marketing during recession means standing out when there is hardly any “marketing noise over the several channels
of media”. People are bound to take notice and thereby increase your credibility in the market. This is the time when
you can get good bargains all over the media channels, thus helping you save on the marketing budget. Move your
focus more towards activities such as blog posts, emails, newsletters, PR along with traditional advertisements.
These activities will not dent one’s pocket.

Marketing intelligently also grabs eyeballs of your competitor’s clients as everyone tries to look for alternatives
during this time. Apart from instilling confidence in your own existing clients, it will also draw good amount of
attention from your competitor’s clients. Your continued visibility during extreme budgetary occasions will be interpreted by your customers and prospects as an indication of dependability, demonstrating you are sufficiently able to endure the downturn and have the initiative to keep on flourishing. Decreasing your marketing initiatives welcomes contenders to exploit and fill the .
5. Diversification Through Value Add & Identify Geographies For Expansion

We all know that it’s wise to work on one’s core competence and make it rock solid! Agreed, however this is exactly
what all your competitors are doing! How will your organization stand apart? Discount wars between competitors
can never benefit any business, especially so when it is during a recession.

Start identifying “value adds” that you may be able to offer to your clients. Make an upstream and downstream
mapping of every offering that you currently have for your clients. Identify the services or ancillary products that are
currently not on offer and maybe required by your existing clients. Always start additional value add services or
products with your existing customers. You may choose to give them as an additional service or as a freebee with
earlier services already in place. In case you choose to provide these as additional services, this can emerge as a
diversification for your organization, no matter how small it is.

Expanding geographically within your organization’s expertise may seem like a workable idea. During these times,
slowly expanding your catchment area will be extremely beneficial. You will be able to give the required time (set up
a focus team to work on compliance and other requirements before proceeding in a new geography area) to acquire
new clients. Social media & internet marketing can take you anyplace, particularly on the off chance that you can create an expertise or a niche product or service.

In conclusion, organizations will need to make the right choices today and see the outcomes tomorrow. Gone are
those days where change management or looking at transforming businesses were one-time activities. The dynamics
of businesses today changes rapidly, much before we anticipate. The biggest survivors are the ones who anticipates
and move with speed and responsive agility.
