In this episode of the Subhash Chandra Show, Shri Subhash Chandra speaks about the ‘benefit of foresightedness’ or being ‘doordarshi’, as they say in Hindi. He is speaking in Surat at the Science Centre auditorium. At the onset, Subhash Ji informs that the Friends of Tribals Society (FTS), the Vanbandhu Parishad have begun work on spreading awareness about education in tribal areas. Coming back to the subject of this episode, he talks about what is the ‘Art of Foresightedness’ and how foresight can help us gain success. Subhash Ji speaks of how a foresighted person once informed him that millions of jobs of today will extinguish in the future and so those many people will be jobless due to the increase of computers and drones. Such foresightedness will help in planning for the future better, said Subhash Ji.
An audience member says that foresightedness means to peep into the future. It is also assessing what may happen in the future based on present circumstances, says another. Anticipating change is a mantra for success, says Subhash Ji, and the way to anticipate is to ‘question’ things. Spotting opportunities is also something that comes with anticipation, he says.
