The Right Question

Asking the right question can make all the difference.

It was the right question that led Atanu Dey to a different career. His question: “Why is India poor?” This is a question which can, I hope, one day transform a nation’s future.

I thought of this again when Bhavana (my wife), after walk/runn-ing the half Marathon, asked “Why do my feet hurt?” Coincidentally, I had got a book from a well-wisher “Born To Run” which had the author asking the same question. So, I started reading the book, embarking on a fascinating journey into the world of ultrarunning.

In work or in personal work, asking the right question can open new vistas. As long as we are not afraid to seek out the answers.
