Seth’s Blog: Cities don’t die (but corporations do)

Seth’s Blog: Cities don’t die (but corporations do).

During my stay of almost 8 years in Kutch – a sparsely populated,largely lagging in industrial or commercial activities till last few years area in the western part of India – we did come across many villages,almost if not completely, dead, simply because all those young and capable citizens had left for greener pastures, leaving very old and otherwise not very enterprising people in the villages. Villages wore countenance of a highly frail old person. Not dead, but almost at the brink of death.

I really wonder whether this can be brought under ‘ failure at the fringes’ and (gross) deviant behavior!



In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
