Comment: I am certain that there are millions of young, enthusiastic, talented, gifted and globally enviable people in India bursting to be given a chance to prove their worth.
Any public or business leader, worth his/her salt, must recognise that there are staff, in all organisations, wishing to change for some time who are highly self-motivated, talented and innovative bursting with ideas, energy and enthusiasm to excel but have been stopped by senior colleagues or by other barriers. The crucial leadership & managerial task is to seek out such gifted gems and to dismantle barriers to performance and productivity and channel talent into avenues that will directly contribute to the achievement of the organisational goals.
