10 Things to learn from Japan

Its not that we have no good examples, but this is not from an individual/s. It is the entire population and all elements within that showed collective learning.

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 silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

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

Finally I have settled on a Theme (I think)

Well for the last whole week I have been trying to find the correct theme in my mind and apparently not getting what I want.

I m looking for a theme which would look decent, clean sheet, a business look and of course with which I can change over to a shared/self hosted service later on for some online business, affiliate marketing, advertising etc.  It should also give me (the laymen) to work around few things and placing pictures, tags, links, pages etc at exactly where I want. It’s pretty strange I have not come across a theme something like WYSIWYG editor. Or am I looking at the wrong place?

On a separate note, I m keen on jumping on the wagon with ‘PostAWeek2011’ group or if things work out fine ‘PostADay2011’ wagon.

The funniest thing is even before I start blogging in this I have written a blog just within a day at posterous.com as deensblog.posterous.com. about posterous itself. I m planning on edit or rewrite the blog in this.

Since I m very much interested in writing various subject which includes reviews, motivational thoughts (which can be read at my blog at blogspot), ideas, how to tips, social media, etc, I m looking for that perfect theme which would let me take my fans, subscribers, readers etc etc along with me to whichever the paid service I choose to move in due course.

Please do drop into this site/blog as often as you can to check on the latest. Like I said there will be something weekly with “postaweek2011” motivation. Finally I will get enough encouragements, ideas, comments and reviews to enhance the quality of the content of this blog.

Cheers
