A Phoenix called JAPAN

Hello everyone,

I went in to a state of poignancy when I came to know about the disaster that hit Japan. Thousands of people lost their families, property and much more. If you observe the pictures you can only see things like billowing smoke, blighted properties and people looking desperately for a helping hand. Some blasts occurred near nuclear plants in Japan and people are getting exposed to deadly
radiations coming out of those nuclear plants. Let us all wish that the loss would be minimal and the people get to their normal lives as soon as possible.

There is some sort of speculation going around that Japanese market is going to collapse and it take eons to recover from this disaster. I hope everyone of you remember what has happened in Japan during world war II. But with in 40-50 years after that incident had happened Japan took its place as one of the super powers of the world. It is the leader of Technology and Automobile industry. All the major brands of cars, electronic devices are from Japan.

Japan is one of the few countries which has their own competitive advantage to be one of the top foreign investment destinations. I don't think natural disasters like this can hamper the development of Japan. It has the ability to regain it's glory within a short time. It's the responsibility of everyone of us to bolster Japan to regain their momentum.


  1. 10 things to learn from Japan

    1. THE CALM - Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

    2. THE DIGNITY - Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

    3. THE ABILITY - The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

    4. THE GRACE - People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

    5. THE ORDER - No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

    6. THE SACRIFICE - Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

    7. THE TENDERNESS - Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

    8. THE TRAINING - The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

    9. THE MEDIA - They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No sensationalizing. Only calm reportage.

    10. THE CONSCIENCE - When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly
