Let There Be Light

If your life is precious than mine
Then it is a very dangerous sign
You have the big power, fine
You may kill for one person, nine

 This is not what humanity is about
You must never ever have any doubt
It is not how the wars will ever end
It is not how World Peace is sought

Indirect compensation or benefits form an important part in the Management’s Kit for satisfaction and motivation of employees.

Indirect compensation is defined as rewards or benefits which an organization provides to its employees in addition to emolument.

There are several categories of benefits, which are required by Law to be provided. Whereas there are some, which are voluntarily provided, and others are subject matter of Collective Bargaining.

In view of diverse nature of benefits, as well as variations in the needs and preferences of employees, not all the benefits are taken positively   hence their effectiveness stands diminished. There are cases where although benefit may be regarded as reward, but its importance against emolument, status or development opportunities, etc. may be on a lower footing making it less attractive to a certain  category of employees.

International Day of Peace

The United Nations' (UN) International Day of Peace is annually held on September 21 to recognize the efforts of individuals, organizations and governments to end conflict and promote peace


What do people do?
On the International Day of Peace, also known as Peace Day, people around the world take part in various activities and organize events centered on the theme “peace”. Events vary from private gatherings to public concerts and forums involving large audiences. Activities include:
  • Interfaith peace ceremonies.
  • A toast for peace.
  • A peace choir.
  • Lighting candles.
  • Peace prayers.
  • A peace convoy of vehicles.
  • Tree planting for peace.
  • Art exhibitions promoting peace.
  • Picnics for peace.
  • Peace walks.
Organizations such as Roots & Shoots, an international environmental and humanitarian program for youth, show their support for the event on an annual basis. Young people involved in Roots & Shoots may engage in activities such as crafting giant peace dove puppets from re-used materials and flying the doves in their communities. People from diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds also commit to organizing an International Day of Peace Vigil. Some groups observe a minute of silence at noon in every time zone across the world on Peace Day.
