[www.keralites.net] Laundry to London: The rags-to-riches tale of JSW Steel's Bikash Chowdhury

 




Laundry to London: The rags-to-riches tale of JSW Steel's Bikash Chowdhury :- The associate VP of treasury at JSW Steel was the son of a Kolkata laundryman who pressed the clothes of the family of Arun Lal, the former Indian cricketer.




Chowdhury was the first in his family to study in an English medium school. Lal's wife Debjani offered to help with the language. And along with the tuition she always gave Chowdhury — he was about 12 then and is 39 now — a refreshing drink. "I would go every day to study because she would give orange squash," the soft-spoken Chowdhury says in an interview over tea on a Saturday evening at his apartment in Sewri, Mumbai. With some striking art around the house, the surroundings are a world apart from the footpath in Kolkata's Bhawanipore area where he grew up.



A relationship that started with English intensified. The Lals, who don't have kids, took Chowdhury under their wing, and guided him to milestones. Chowdhury, splitting his time between the Lal home and his father's pavement dwelling in Bhawanipore, went on to do BCom and MCom. Then he appeared for the CAT. In 2000, got into IIM Kolkata. Jobs with Deutsche Bank and Credit Agricole followed, including a stint in London for DB.



A new family for Chowdhury "I have two sets of parents, Mr Arun Lal and Mrs Lal and the other, my biological parents," Chowdhury says. On his part, he has generously expressed his gratitude to the Lals. Chowdhury has gifted them a Mercedes, while driving the relatively modest Volkswagen Vento and Renault Duster.


He also financially aided the Lal family when they wanted to move from an apartment into a bungalow. As the ultimate tribute, the Chowdhurys named their daughter Arunima after Arun. Asked what kind of a person his improbable story has made him, Chowdhury says, "I hope into a better one.



"We gained a son. He is a terrific human being and I am grateful to the Lord for Bikash," said Arun Lal.

DEAR ALL,
 
http://onlinedarshan.com/Janamashtami/pic/krishna_janmashtami.jpg
 
The festival of Krishna Janamastami is the celebration of Lord Krishna's birthday.Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, is a unique character in Hindu mythology.
 
alt
 
The birthday of Krishna falls on the Astami of Krishna Paksh (the eighth day of the dark fortnight) in the month of shravana (August-September).
 
Significance:-
 
There is a tradition among the hindus, that whenever the wicked annoy and persecute the righteous, god undertakes an incarnation, not only to protect them, but also to save the world from destruction, due to their evil deeds.Krishna the incarnation of lord vishnu was born with this purpose.
 
 
The Story of Krishna Birth...

Mother Earth, unable to bear the burden of sins committed by evil kings and rulers,appealed to Brahma, the Creator for help. Brahma prayed to the Supreme Lord Vishnu,who assured him that he would soon be born on earth to annihilate tyrannical forces. 

One such evil force was Kamsa, the ruler of Mathura (in northern India, now in Uttar Pradesh state) and his people were utterly terrified of him. On the day Kamsa's sisterDevaki was married off to Vasudeva, an akashvani or voice from the sky was heard prophesying that Devaki's 8th son would be the destroyer of Kamsa. The frightened Kamsa immediately unsheathed his sword to kill his sister but Vasudeva intervened and implored Kamsa to spare his bride, and promised to hand over every new born child to him. Kamsa relented but imprisoned both Devaki and her husband Vasudeva.

When Devaki gave birth to her first child, Kamsa came to the prison cell and slaughtered the newborn. In this way, he killed the first six sons of Devaki. Even before her 8th child was born, Devaki and Vasudeva started lamenting its fate and theirs. Then suddenly Lord Vishnu appeared before them and said he himself was coming to rescue them and the people of Mathura. He asked Vasudeva to carry him to the house of his friend, the cowherd chief Nanda in Gokula right after his birth, where Nanda's wife Yashoda had given birth to a daughter. He was to exchange his boy and bring Yashoda's baby daughter back to the prison. Vishnu assured them that "nothing shall bar your path".

At midnight on ashtami, the divine baby was born in Kamsa's prison. Remembering the divine instructions, Vasudeva clasped the child to his bosom and started for Gokula, but found that his legs were in chains. He jerked his legs and was unfettered! The massiveiron-barred doors unlocked and opened up.

While crossing river Yamuna, Vasudeva held his baby high over his head. The rain fell in torrents and the river was in spate. But the water made way for Vasudeva and miraculously a five-mouthed snake followed him from behind and provided shelter over the baby.

When Vasudeva reached Gokula, he found the door of Nanda's house open. He exchanged the babies and hurried back to the prison of Kamsa with the baby girl. Early in the morning, all the people at Gokula rejoiced the birth of Nanda's beautiful male child. Vasudeva came back to Mathura and as he entered, the doors of the prison closed themselves.
When Kamsa came to know about the birth, he rushed inside the prison and tried to kill the baby. The seventh child was "Yoga-Maya" who slipped out of the hands of Kamsa, warned him of his death.
 
alt
Lord Sri Krishna said in the Gita: "To protect the righteous, to destroy the sinful and to reinstate morals, I am born again and again in every age"; now, you get a special meaning. In every age, the Lord takes birth on this earth to destroy evil and protect dharma.
If Sri krishna(The lord) has to be discovered in our heart, the mind(Devaki) and Intellect(Vasudev) must integrate.Six impurities----desire, anger, greed, delusion, intoxication&jealousy must be given up.One must rise above the spiritual powers(Yoga-maya).Finally the lord is born and he kills the EGO(Kamsa).
