Work-life balance is a concept including proper prioritizing between “work” and “lifestyle” .
Work-life balance is when your mental, emotional and physical resources are equal to the demands placed upon you, both personal goals and obligations stemming from the responsibility you own yourself, your family and your community.
Work-related stress has become a leading contributor to a myriad of physical health problem ranging from high blood pressure to auto-immune disorder. By keeping your stress levels to a minimum and prioritizing self-care, a balanced life may be the single most important lifestyle change you can make in achieving improved health.

WORK-LIFE BALANCE AS AN EQUATION:
Mental resources + emotional resources + physical resources = achieving your personal goal & fulfilling your responsibilities.

ROOT CAUSES OF WORK LIFE IMBALANCE:
Most people who suffer from working-life imbalance tend to assume the problem is one of time. They often lament, “If only there were more hours in the days!” But while we don’t have control over the passage of time, we do have control over what we do during it. If you feel that you don’t have enough time to achieve your goals and fulfill your responsibilities, then you may need to find additional resources to deal with them.

SOLUTIONS:
Recognize the role of work.
Develop one calendar for work and family. Create a daily routine.
Learn to breathe.
Make time for yourself.
Be present, consistent and accountable Exercise and meditate

A SMALL STORY:
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him, ”Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?” The crow answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.
A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up

CONCLUSION:
Working evening hours can put stress on your family life and relationships, knowing how to cope with the challenges is the key. Through communicating, dealing with problem early and prioritizing socializing and recreation, shift work will have a smaller impact on your life.

Bureaucrat

Kautilya (also known as Chanakya, 350-275 BCE), a pioneer in Diplomacy and Government Administration, Professor of Political Science and Economics in University of Taxila, an Indian Statesman and Philosopher, Chief Advisor and Prime Minister of the Indian Emperor Chandragupta, the first ruler of the Mauryan Empire. A man behind the science of politics - “Arthashastra”.


The Arthashastra gives information about specific topics that are relevant for rulers who wish to run an effective government. Diplomacy and war (including military tactics) are the two points treated in most detail but the work also includes recommendations on law, prisons, taxation, irrigation, agriculture, mining, fortifications, coinage, manufacturing, trade, administrations, diplomacy, and spies.

At the time of Kautilya, India was mostly composed of a number of small independent states, with the exception of the Magadha kingdom, a realm that controlled most of Northern India, which was ruled by the Nanda dynasty. The fame of Kautilya is owed to the important role he played in the fall of the Magadha kingdom and the rise to power of the Mauryan dynasty. In order to accomplish this, he became an ally and loyal servant of Chandragupta, a noble member of the Kshatriya caste, who was related to the Nanda family, but he was an exile. Before he became Chandragupta’s ally, Kautilya was introduced to the Nanda king, who insulted him. Kautilya untied his sikha (lock of hair on male Hindus), and swore he would only tie it back once the Nanda dynasty was destroyed.


Kautilya and Chandragupta raised a small army that lacked sufficient military strength to take the Magadha throne directly. Therefore, Kautilya’s strategies became useful: Chandragupta entered the capital of the Magadha kingdom, Pataliputra, where he triggered a civil war using Kautilya Chanakya’s intelligence network. In 322 BCE Chandragupta finally seized the throne putting an end to the Nanda dynasty and he established the Mauryan dynasty which would rule India until 185 BCE. After this victory, Chandragupta fought and defeated the generals of Alexander the Great located in Gandhara, present day Afghanistan. Following these successful campaigns, Chandragupta was seen as a brave leader who defeated part of the Greek invaders and ended the corrupt Nanda government and thus gained wide public support. Kautilya’s political vision had a heavy influence on Chandragupta, the first Indian ruler who unified Northern India under a single political unit for the first time in history. Even today, the Arthashastra is the number one classic of diplomacy in India and, within this category, it is one of the most complete works of antiquity. A number of institutions in India such as universities and diplomatic offices have been named after Kautilya in honour of his work.

J.JAYALALITHA the Actor,Administrator,political leader and THE  21st century Cleopatra of Tamil  Nadu

J JAYALALITHA was born in a tamil iyengar family in mysore,Karnataka in february 24th  1948.just an year after india’s independence and also the real independence of many Indian women caught by the disadvantage of being a women In a society were it was looked as a burden and many social evils which mostly affected women.Jayalalittha became the representative of south Indian women aspirations and dreams .  even after her death she has affected the masses by her sudden demise .she began her journey in life in mysore were she was named komalavalli by her parents after her grandmothers name . She did her schooling at a bishop cotton higher secondary school.she did excel at academics and become a school topper in tenth standard board examination .she discontinued her studies at eleventh standard. she had her ambition to become a lawyer  but her destiny had other ideas as she had to enter the film industry accidentally due to pressure from her mother .


JAYALALITHA THE ACTOR had a great film career spanning almost two decades even though she debuted in a kannada movie CHINNADA GOUMBE.she acted mostly in tamil films earning praise from people and filmgoers .Her tamil movies ayirathil oruvan and adimai penn won her recognition and fame in tamil film industry .but her association with MGR and her screen space with him as the leading lady for almost 27 films later proved to be a pathway for her into politics, with the help of the charisma and the screen presence that made her one of the most recognizable and revered stars in the film industry , though there had been many affairs regarding jayalalitha and mgr she acknowledged him as her guide and  rumors posted about them and her association with other male stars, she did rise above them and proved them wrong and that to in her own style .she was bold ,defiant and confident in her approach  and was even admired for her courage by the late mgr himself .


Her entry into politics was not the profession chosen once again by her as she was nominated by her political leader and guru who believed in her education and English speaking skills .hence she was nominated by her leader mgr as a rajya sabha mp .she was again nominated in a post as a propaganda secretary by her mentor in the world Tamil conference in madurai in 1987, but once she was into it she never looked back and also wanted and strived to make a name of herself in whatever field she was thrown into she came back with overwhelming success.her grit and determination to bring back the old strong organization structure of aiadmk when it became a fledgling unit with a split in the party and she came back as an opposition leader in 1989 assembly elections .the incident in which she became a full fledged politician in which her  indomitable spirit was shown to her followers which was due to the incident were her clothes were torn and her hair was pulled by DMK MPs caused public outrage and anguish from people in tamil nadu and add to that the public sympathy of the death of Rajiv Gandhi and her coalition with the congress in 1996  earned her rich dividends politically.she rode herself to power for the first time and then her corruption scandals in her first term in disproportionate assets case , 100 crore big fat wedding of her adopted son , tanci case , etc and her relationship with sasikala and their direct indulgence in her day to day affairs of the government  had  made it  test people’s patience as they showed her the door in the subsequent elections in 1996 by even making her lose her own MLA seat .

       But yes even in her first term a few noteworthy things were done like the all women police station ,free cycles to girls and mass wedding of women below poverty line and their dowry expenses borne by her etc .in which she again proved that she was not only a powerful women leader but also she took keen interests in the welfare of the women and the upliftment and empowerment of women from all classes , rich, poor , castes ,religions, etc. and it did become her core constituency of voters till her last breath.

                       When everyone did write her off , she made an astounding comeback with a electoral victory by stitching together an alliance electorally powerful as she rode to power again to be dismissed due to her earlier corruption scandals as it did haunt her again and again at inconvenient time when she had the people’s mandate  majority or in her critics or political opponents words her followers mandate. Her indecisiveness in going ahead with sacking government employees and their reduction in their salary pay became a political blunder and her party men riots in the Dharmapuri bus firing , Coimbatore riots , by her partymen when she was convicted by the trial court became an united opposition war cry to oust her from power .as the opposition stood strong she used her political wit gained from her past election experiences made sure the DMK government to be formed became a minority in the 2006 assembly elections and add to that the dmk’s sudden populist decisions such a free colour tv ,free gas stove and one rupee rice  elected him to power.

       
                       
         In  her thid term she created the successful and the most populist scheme of her regime the AMMA brand were AMMA RESTAURANTS,AMMA SALT ,AMMA CEMENT ,AMMA MARKET,AMMA WATER BOTTLE ,AMMA RICE,AMMA THEATRES,AMMA MINI BUSES ETC. it did make it politically relevant by appealing to the poor masses but it also did drain the state economy further after the populist regime of dmk with free tv,free stoves ,etc by the dmk government .the tamil nadu state budget deficit crossed to over 9000 crore  and also the debt burden has crossed over 2 lakh crore . this has severely drained the states economy. And also the Chennai floods in the year 2015 and her governments deep slumber which was its official reaction at that time and her stickers applied in the flood relief materials at the time of emergency were food supplies were in demand caused public tirade which turned towards her .she did manage to scrape through the 2016 assembly elections thanks to her political acumen with the experience of many bitterly fought elections.

She also had her flaws  like her political mentor MGR as she hid her health condition from  her  people who elected her many times as a public figure it was her duty to reveal her status of her health and also even she was unable to control the corruption and riots done by her party men and ministers as she was herself caught in many corruption scandals which did threaten her political career. These were the same blemishes her mentor MGR committed himself with the exception of any direct involvement in corruption or being convicted at that time .but jayalalitha did successfully manage to cling to her image of a messiah in public life and as leader for the downtrodden people.
But she left the people and her party men , followers in the beginning of her term. Her demise is a large vacuum unfilled in national politics. But she was the Cleopatra for the tamil people as she won people with her beauty and gracefulness in films and also she won the people’s heart and admiration by her intelligence and shrewdness in politics  and administration.

Today, being happy at work is no longer a luxury. It is a necessity! Everyone wants to find a job they love, be happy at work, and create a great workplace. Can we create workplaces where happiness is the norm, not the exception? The answer is a resounding YES.

Why is Happiness important?
The Organization offers the opportunity to celebrate and harness our intellectual capabilities while creating economic benefits for ourselves, our customers and society. Our minds work better while we are happier and at peace.
This is substantiated by an abundance of research that increasingly points to the fact that happy people are ‘better workers’. Happy employees are more sensitive to opportunities in the work environment, more outgoing and helpful to co-workers, and more optimistic and confident all of which are positive features for the organization. It has also been found that in order to have happy, satisfied and loyal customers; organizations should have happy, satisfied and loyal employees. Even with teams that do not have direct contact with customers, there was a positive association between how employees feel and customer attitudes.

Culture of Happiness Evangelism
With a simple, yet, lofty mission of “Happiest People . Happiest Customers”, Happiest Minds, a digital transformation company, focuses on the twin themes of disruptive technologies and people happiness. Our name reflects our mission and is indicative of the culture that we are building,
Happiest Minds is a pioneer in the creation of the role of a Happiness Evangelist, someone whose role is to sensitize each Happiest Mind to the Happiness Agenda; synthesize the tenets of happiness into organizational practices; and assess the effectiveness of people practices through Happ’o’meters.

Who then is a Happiness Evangelist?
A Happiness Evangelist is one who: looks for opportunities to appreciate others genuinely; listens with empathy; strives to increase harmony and collaboration; is polite and courteous; displays kindness & concern for others; is willing to help others; encourages new thoughts and ideas, even if they are not aligned with his/ her own; is willing to share knowledge; cultivates the culture of WE instead of I; dis¬plays calmness in challenging situations; Goes the extra mile to keep the customer (internal/external) happy; and has a high commitment to results.
The three C’s will helping enabling happiness in work place:
Cultivate a sense of meaning and purpose - Rosabeth Kanter, Professor, Harvard University wrote that people want to work for companies where they feel they are making a meaningful difference in the world. People want to feel as if their work matters, and that their contributions help to achieve something really important. People who believe in what they are doing are happier, more motivated, and more productive.


Create a collaborative community - Community at Happiest Minds fosters a work environment that encourages mutual respect and sensitivity. You like the community and the community likes you. This creates a sense of belongingness, respect and pride - which leads to employees taking on more responsibility. Close, trusting and supportive relationships are hugely important to one’s state of mind and their willingness contribute to a team.

Capacity to make choices - People like to have a say in shaping their workday and controlling their own destiny. “We found that knowledge work¬ers whose companies allow them to help decide when, where, and how they work were more likely to be satisfied with their jobs, performed better, and viewed their company as more innovative than competitors that didn’t offer such choices,” wrote Diane Hoskins in the Harvard Business Review.

The impact of happy employees on an organization is dramatic. We need organizations that create satisfied and happy employees who can help create resilient companies - ones that can withstand the challenges of an ever changing, increasingly competitive marketplace.

GST is one indirect tax for the whole nation, which will make India one unified com¬mon market.
GST is the single tax in the supply of goods and services , right from the manufactur¬er to the consumers. Credits of the input taxes paid at each stage will be available in the subsequent stage of value addition, which means GST essentially a tax only on value addition at each stage. The final consumer will thus bear only the GST charged by the last dealer in the supply chain, with set-off benefit at all the previous stages.
OBJECTIVES OF GST:
Ensuring availability of input credit across the value chain.
Minimising cascading effect of taxation.
Simplification of tax administration and compliance.
Harmonisation of tax based laws and administration procedures across the country.
Increasing the tax base and raising compliance.
Prevention of unhealthy competition among states.
BENEFITS OF GST :
Easy compliance.
Uniformity of tax rates and structures.
Removal of cascading.
Improved competition.
Gain to manufacturers and exporters.

At the central level the following taxes are being subsumed :
Central excise duty
Additional excise duty.
Service tax
Additional custom duty commonly known as countervailing duty
Special additional duty of customs.

At the state level the following taxes are being subsumed :
> Subsuming of the state value added tax/ sales tax.
> Entertainment tax (other than the tax levied by the local bodies), central sales tax (levied by the centre and collected by the states).
> Octroi and entry tax.
> Purchase tax.
> Luxury tax
> Taxes on lottery, betting and gambling.

GST would be administered in India, The federal structure of India , there will be two components of GST - Central GST and State GST. Both will simultaneously levy GST across the value chain. Tax will be levied on every supply of goods and ser¬vices. Centre would levy and collect the state goods and service tax on all transac¬tions within a state. The input tax credit of CGST would be available for discharging the CGST liability on the output at each stage.
Similarly the credit of CGST paid on input would be allowed for paying the SGST on output. No cross utilization of credit would be levied simultaneously. On every trans¬action of supply of goods and services except on exempted goods and services goods which are outside the preview of GST and the transaction which are below the prescribed threshold limits. Further, both would be levied on the same price or value unlike state VAT which is levied on the value of the goods inclusive of central Ex¬cise.

BREXIT - > Britain exist from EU
Results were released on 24 June.
52 % opted for Leaving EU
48 % opted to stay

What may happen if Britain stays with EU?
They will have good support from rest of the countries in the European un¬ion for the security
Since Britain is a small country in terms of both size and population (less than8.5million)they need all the support to be global giant
What are the advantages of leaving the EU?
Britain pays a large membership fee to be a part of EU, that can be avoided They can reframe immigration rules and stop eastern Europeans from working in Britain

Effects of BREXIT:
Britain can frame new workers policy and can reduce the money which they spend for immigrant workers.
Free trade agreements will be hard Investment in Britain from foreigners will reduce Inflation will increase

Effects on India:
Jobs and education opportunities will be limited for Indians as laws and rules will be strict
India can have direct Trade agreements with UK
Indian companies cant penetrate the euro market by establishing their business
in UK .

When Indian markets began trading that Monday, they had to factor-in the pact of Rexit: the Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan's exit from the central bank once his term finishes in September. However, a much bigger event, the referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union (EU), which resulted in its exit from the EU—Brexit—spooked the markets. The Sensex opened lower by 635 points and went down by 1,091 points before bottom fishing brought some stabil¬ity. Even as the index recovered 486 points from the day's low, it still closed the day with a deep cut of 605 points or 2.24%.

The debt market, which reacted negatively to Rexit, with 10-year bond yields spiking on Monday morning (markets, however, recovered the same day) remained relatively calm on Brexit. However, the currency market took a beating and the rupee lost on both Monday and Friday and ended the week with a loss of 89 paisa against the US dollar.
The biggest worry about the Brexit vote is that it has opened a Pandora's Box. Emboldened by the Brexit outcome, groups opposed to the EU membership in other European countries have already started demanding their own referendums. The im¬mediate impact of Brexit is an increase in risk aversion when it comes to investing.
"Risk aversion is likely to take hold across asset classes," says Michael Strobaek, Global Chief Investment Officer, Credit Suisse. The first hint of this was seen when crude oil fell while gold rallied 5% each.

Among the global currencies, only the Japanese yen and the US dollar appreci¬ated (considered as safe currencies by the market). Currency deprecia¬tion will further increase risk aver¬sion and put more pressure on the weak Asian currencies.
"Asian currencies, excluding Japan, could be hurt if other EU countries follow suit and call for a referendum," says a recently re¬leased DBS report. The Indian rupee won't suffer much but won't be left unscathed. "The direct trade impact (on the rupee) is limited from UK, but global risk will likely weigh on India in the near term. So we revise our 2016-17 average US dollar target to Rs 68.5 from Rs 67.9," says the Kotak Economy Report.
