Sorry, could not send the INTERESTING FACT yesterday, as I was in a resort in the outer fringes of Kolkata and my Photon did not work!!


We all have intentions to save whatever we can – money, property, electricity etc. This ROL is dedicated to a friend of mine who demonstrated how he saves electricity in his organization (I am sure he does that at his home too).

I was in Asansol on 1-2 January 2016 to do a workshop on Motivation for the middle and senior level of employees in a Power Generation Organization. Subrato Banerjee is the Head – HR for the plant. To use a pun – he is a Powerful Personality in more ways than one.

We had dinner together on 1st January in their lovely guest house where I was put up – typical British architecture with huge rooms and ante rooms – a real luxury for people living in match boxes type flats today.

On 2nd January I went to his office in the Plant. After a brief discussion, he took me to meet the VP – Plant, who would be inaugurating the workshop. While going out, he switched off the lights (fan or AC was not required as it was winter). We had a discussion with the VP – a fine gentleman. We came to Subrato’s room again.  I took my laptop to the huge conference room where the training was to take place. Again I found he switched off the lights.

I complimented on his efforts to save power in an organization that generates POWER!! He then said and showed that on every switch board he has printed the following words “To save electricity please switch off the lights/fans/AC when not in use”. He was being the role model in walking the talk and demonstrating what he was asking everyone to demonstrate.

TAKE A BOW SUBRATO!!! You have become my role model as well to save electricity in whatever way we can.

Reflections – Let us save electricity and save the nation in our own little way.
