ये बुज़ुर्ग की नहीं, पूरे समाज की मौत है!

कल मुम्बई से जुड़ी एक ख़बर  पढ़ी। बाद में टीवी चैनल्स पर भी उससे जुड़ी एक-आध रिपोर्ट देखी। एक शख्स डेढ़ साल बाद जब अमेरिका से घर लौटा तो देखा कि उसका फ्लैट अंदर से बंद है। उसकी मां उस घर में अकेली रह रहीं थी। जब बार-बार घंटी बजाने पर भी दरवाज़ा नहीं खोला, तो दरवाज़ा तोड़कर वो अंदर घुसा। उसने देखा कि फ्लैट के अंदर उसकी मां की जगह उसका कंकाल पड़ा है। पिता की मौत चार साल पहले ही हो चुकी थी।

जब मैं 3 वर्ष का था तब मैं यह सोचता था की
मेरे पिता दुनिया के सबसे मजबूत और

So I thought I would put together this list of five questions I think every employee should ask their CEO in their life.
