Oh yeah.  Sound marketing strategy Aditya.  You can never sell prevention.  At least not like gang busters.  Selling cures is the way to go! ;)

HI Pankaj

A Million $ question...:)


01.
If you go to see money is nothing...a green or orange coloured paper...but to live a royal life..money is everything...and no harm running after money so far as you are earning it the sincere and hard way to suffice your needs.....and help the needy..........

02.
but then to run after money entire life...is ...hmmmmmmmm...........sometimes just for the kick of earning, Like " IT's not about the money, it's the Game......" :)

03.
"Money is not the prime asset in life, Time is ..."
...and money can be a ROYAL ditcher..."Money is a 'something' that never sleeps"

 

MONEY is Important for the real good reasons.....!!!

Regards

Not a single activity in this world can be culminated without the involvement of money. This intrinsic force is much more powerful than the natural wealths many may attempt to compare with.

Money is an important ingredient to stay afloat ..... the quantum decides the extent of comfort or luxuries you can get into ! But without money .... you will not even get a cremation for yourself !

I defer on that Pankaj.  Just because the current simulacrum of society pegs our existential essentials to a bank balance it does not mean that this will remain true for ever or that it was true in the past.  The transactional model of merit based rewards is at best a fractured tin soldier with a crutch (it is of course better than the charity handouts).

 

However one thing which has not changed and which I doubt will change is value.  So if we rephrase what you said as: 

Not a single activity in this world can be culminated without the involvement of value. This intrinsic force is much more powerful than the natural wealths many may attempt to compare with.


Value is an important ingredient to stay afloat ..... the quantum decides the extent of comfort or luxuries you can get into ! But without value.... you will not even get a cremation for yourself !

If you say that, I will whole heartedly agree.  Today's representation of value has been hardened to a singular representative coin...aka...money.  While "real value" floats distinct and separate.  A market economy driven society centers "value" in a "paisa phek tamasha dhek" culture.  However therein lies its weakness. It periodically implodes and after each implosion, notional wealth is borrowed from the future to shore up the present. Thats what happened with sub prime and every other financial meltdown before.  However this borrowing cannot go on infinitely so eventually it will implode.  A pundit said financial meltdowns are cyclical and has a 40 year lifespan...with the internet I think it will take half that and have bigger impact... I estimate we'll see the next cave in around 2030ish....it will rain wall street and dalal brokers again (as in them jumping from their high rise windows) ;) .....

 

Sorry went a bit off topic with that but my point is this. Money is a representation of value.  As long as we are able to nail the value, we can show the finger to money anytime - use it for our purposes without concern....short circuit the rich man's burden before it leaves the gate....

 

All this I know sounds like a vague arm chair philosopher's abstraction that won't hold up in the heat and dust of the marketplace.  In the coming years I hope to demonstrate it in action....

This is an interesting read on Quora, on a similar topic if not the same.

Society drives the value of money in a person's life. When you no longer care to be connected to the society, the quantity of money no longer matters.
Interesting food for thought.... probably my anti-social streak shining through :D

whew ..... but your last two lines summed you up. Well said.
But then ... without money .. you have no Value !!
No philosophy or Dr.Johnson like explanation here ... just simple ... reality is also bought by money nowadays !!
Why is everyone relating the importance of money to being rich?
"without money .. you have no Value !!"

not really, the most important contributions to mankind have been made by paupers - the Buddha, Jesus Christ, Socrates, Plato etc etc.

A direct test is to see if you remember any rich man just because he is rich. Once the rich man is dead he is just like the poor man: dead, forgotten, and ignored. Value doesn't reside in having or not having money.

Not to divert away from the topic of having money against being rich, but how many poor people do we know that has brought in a change or made a mark in the past few years. Achievers no longer get their due respect in today's world, unless the achievement resulted in a lot of money.

 

If someone is asked to name the top 10 famous persons of the world or the country of today, I bet all of them are rich irrespective of which field they belong to. And being famous tend to bring in the delusion of being good or being idealistic for the rest of us. (Not talking abt Osama here)
