MANAGEMENT DECISION & PRODUCTIVITY
In the ancient Tamil
Nadu (India), there was a place called
Pandiyanoor", named after
the King "Thiramyp Pandian", who ruled this area in the 8th
Century AD. (In Tamil, Thiramy =
Productivity oriented ability, Pandiyan = Dynastic name of
the King's family, who ruled the ancient South-Eastern
districts with Madurai as the capital, Oor = Place).
The speciality of the king was that he indoctrinated
the concept of "Productivity" and "Faster Decision making"
ability among all his Administrative Heads, Citizens, Workers and
even among the Army Personnel. He encouraged and
rewarded the individuals who come out
new ideas to save cost, energy, resources, time etc...
One of the most Practical Decisions and Productive achievement of
"Thiramyp Pandiayan" was, raising the height of the
boundary walls of all the irrigation tanks and crop
fields, in his ruling territory. This was as per the
short and ingenious words "Varuppuyara", of the Ancient Tamil
poetess "Avvyyar" of 7th Century AD. (In Tamil "Varappu"
means boundary wall of water storage/crop fields, and "Uyara"
means acquire more height). As per the words of the
Poetess, raising the boundary walls of irrigation tanks and crop
boundaries will raise the
level of stored water. This will increase the "Paddy"
outputs (the main crop which needs a constant wet earth) and feed
People who eat well will be more healthy and be more productive by
their ability to contribute more work. This productive
ultimately strengthen the kingdom, and result in increasing the
fame of the Ruler to greater heights.
CHOZHA KING MEETING
adjacent to the Pandiya Kingdom. In 8th Century AD this was ruled
by a King named "Kadal Konda Chozhan" (Kadal = Sea,
Konda = Victorious possession,
Chozhan = D
name of the Chozha King's family). He heard of the
fame and capabilities of "Thiramyp Pandian", and
developed an interest to meet him, discuss and gather some new
Productivity and Management Decision concepts, for improvement of
the self as
well as the Chozha kingdom. He sent his envoy to
Pandiya Kingdom to convey the same and get an
acceptance for his visit. "Thiramyp
Pandian" was two fold happy to meet the envoy from Chozha King.
Because, he wanted to strengthen the Good will with his
neighbour as well as to gain the secrets of the
ability, intellegence and oveseas victories of
to intensify his Productive thoughts and decision
abilities. Immediately he called the Royal Astrologer
to fix a good and auspicious day for the visit.
The astrologer said that the best day is the next
immediate Full Moon day, at 7.11 PM. It is because :-
Moon which controls the mind, is exposed to the total
and it reflects the
whole Sun light towards the earth in the night, which
is synonymous to an ability to use all the acquired
energy to enlighten the worldly subjects. Hence, the
Meeting on that day shall provide the optimum knowledge
At 7.11 PM the Moon enters the "Rishbha
Rasi" (Taurus/Bull sign) at "Karthigeya Nakshathram" (Star
Alcyone), the King of the "Krithiga Group" (Pleiades
Cluster), having over 200 Stars configured inside. If the
meeting takes place at this point of time, both the Kings will
have the driving power of the Bull and reach some constructive
action plan to benefit a large cluster of subjects in both the
7+1+1 = 9,
representing the maximum of any number of digits in
single or in clusters. This is
in numerological science
said that the meeting should take place without any disruption,
as happened to him in the past, due to his minor health
had a copy of the horoscope
Pandian". He studied and found that the Mercury was in
at the time of his birth.
It is a
(Debilitation or Neecham)
Mercury. Pisces is a Water sign and Mercury is the
hottest and fastest rotating planet (closest to
the Sun). Their combination boils and evaporates the
aquatic contents, as well as pump them fast inside the
person, born with this combination. Astronomically, it should
cause Digestive & Blood pressure problems to the King. Hence, he
asked whether the King had frequent problems of this
nature, hindering any important appointments. The King was
surprised, and said that he should positively make the meeting
with the Chozha King.
The astrologer suggested to "Thiramyp
Pandian" to initiate the meeting with a light meal made of "Cholam"
(Indian Corn) and "Kondai Kadalai" (Whole Bengal Gram). Both are
nutritive, improve and moderate his Digestive and Blood pressure
systems. Also the names
Kondai and Cholam" synchronises with the name "Kadal Konda
Chozhan". This is a favourable combination as per "Vasthu
Sasthram" (Mixed Science of Nomenclature, Numerology and
The king immediately
called the Royal Chef and
orderd to make the initiation dish with "Cholam" and "Kondai
Kadalai". The Chef said he will make "Cholap Poori" with the side
dish of "Kondai Kadalai Koottu" (Koottu = Liquid mixture).
See Recipe below.
Accordingly, Thiramyp Pandian fixed and conveyed the date of visit
He also made an elaborate Red Carpet Welcome, with 21 Gunshots. He
called the best Soldier "Veera Senan", in his army. Veera Senan
has contributed many ideas,
implemented and saved the Army expenses, by many short-cut
strategies, Thiramayp Pandian told him that as soon as the Chozha
arrives in the Pandiyan Border, he should shoot
Innovative and Inquisitive "Veera Senan" said "Great King, I have
a small cost saving suggestion ?" Thiramy was very glad
to hear that and said, tell me your suggestion for a
good and improved welcome to the Chozha King. Veera said
"Respected King, Should I waste my second shot, if I can get
the Chozha King in the 1st itself !!! I am very
confident of my shooting ability, and I will be happy
to save the 20 shots as a cost saving service to your great
Kingdom Sir !!! I have already taken such productive
and creative decisions
in the past Sir". With widely open eyes, looking for greater
rewards from the King, he continued ".
Tiger entered the
"Karumbu(ch) Cholai Gramam" (Karunbu = Sugar Cane. Cholai =
Rich Farm Yard. Gramam = Village)
and was hiding behind the fully grown and tall Sugar Cane crops,
instead of hunting it with a team of 14 Army personnel for a
long time, I detonated the area with a cheap "Fragmentation
bomb". Even though
about 50 acres of land
became barren, the Tiger ran away once for all into the
forest. Even it comes back, it will be openly visible, as the
whole area is deserted !!!"
Thiramyp Pandian, felt a strong shock, first in his life time, and
go back to your Army base immediately", in a shouting voice.
Immediately, he created an ordinance that "If the
subjects of the Kingdom gets any productive and cost
saving ideas hence forth, they are not authorised to
implement them immediately. They should be written and
deposited into a "Karuthuk Kudam" (Idea Pot), which
will be installed in every road junctions. The ideas will be
evaluated by a panel of Ministers, with reference to a
broad-based "Social and Economic justification" and
then a decision will be taken to Implement or
Appropriate award also will be given to the idea givers.
Frustrated Pandiya King decided to
welcome the Chozha King with all paraphernalia,
including the Chola Poori & Kondai Kadalai Koottu, but without the
21 Gun shots.
: Productivity is a relative and two-edged tool. Productive to one
area could be un-productive and even be destructive to another
vital area. If it is not viewed with reference to a broad-based
benefit orientation, it may induct many dangerous end-results.
Similarly the (Government & private) Management Decisions, if not
evaluated for its implications on a wide range of after-effects on
a society, it may result in many dangerous and injurious
