Nicely put on Productivity and competence !!!
Sometime back I got some plumbing work done. The plumber said the work would take around eight hours or one full day. Once he started working, it took me a couple of hours to figure out that he was basically wasting time and he could easily finish work in four hours.
I confronted him on this and he agreed. The logic he offered for wasting time was very interesting. He said, plumbing was a profession that needed some experience and expertise. He had the necessary experience and expertise and could work faster than the average plumber could. The trouble was whenever he finished worked fast, the customers would dilly dally in paying him, the amount of money, that had been agreed on.
The reason always offered was, “but that hardly took any time”. He found it very difficult to explain to his customers that it barely took any time simply…

Relationship between Share market and Hot wheels.
Today’s morning conversation between me and Abhinav which happened when we were riding on bike.
Abhinav: Daddy, are there any shares around Rs 200.
Me: Why are you asking? Yes , plenty of shares are there below 200
Abhinav: I have pocket money of Rs 200 and I want to spend by buying share.
Me: Very good.
Abhinav: Pl get all documents and details of shares. Let me select.
Me: Omg. Documents !!!
Abhinav: Is Hot wheels share available?
Me: No. Evening we will select your first share.
Me and Priya was very proud of his thought process.

This time Abhinav shown interest to participate in Spell Bee International though he dont like English much ( basically his 90% interest in Science and Maths only). But He want to see how the exam would be? We enrolled for the Inter-School level and exam happened last Month. Totally he would have spend 10 hours in preparation in which he gave more time for GK rather than English.
Yesterday His Teacher announced him as School Topper in his Grade. That means there are 12 section in Class 2. Each class has average of 35 students, out of which 10-12 students might be participated from his school. So it would be 150 students participation in Class 2 and Abhinav scored Topper and he is eligible to participate in State / Regional level competition. The cost of conducting Spell bee exam is Rs 400 plus for entry level and Rs 450 for next level. it is very very expensive relative to IMO (Olympiad exam is Rs 110). Spell bee management needs to consider this.
