  1. The credential of the author are really impressive. If we read between the lines, the topic (VALUE OF FAILURE) itself creates ignites curiosity in us, to appraise and introspect, if anything contained is relevant to us. If yes, we can emulate the same and benefit from the same.
    Failure and success are the two sides of the same coin. If our efforts results in failure, we certainly feel, but it should never be forgotten that there is no smooth sailing. Impediments and pin-pricks are always there. We can make still more sincere effort(s). Our failings should not be construed as failings due to our capability or capacity to assimilate but maybe it is due to some extraneous circumstances beyond our control which we can overcome with experience of our ‘failure(s)’. Failure hardly means we cannot try again; trial and error method has proven that errors could be minimized in a few trials and obliterated totally by getting experience. If we ponder about the lives of great men who left their footprint in the annals of history goes to prove that they failure did not deter them to try-try again till success knocked their doors.
    It is true that everybody like to be successful but when it is otherwise, it should not be taken as mission failure but a temporary hiccup and spur us for more efforts. The way the ‘failure’ is construed in ‘Silicon Valley’ and how the person concerned gets branded is really disheartening.
    In Bhagwad Gita it has been clearly said: We should not get disturbed in life due to success or failure in it. We should remain calm at mind in all circumstances.
    Lord Krishna in Bhagwat Gita has very eloquently said: We should not get disturbed in life due to success or failure in it. We should remain calm at mind in all circumstances. Perform your duty equi-poised, O Arjuna, abandoning all attachment to success or failure. Such an equanimity is called yoga.
    Let there be failures in our lives, these should not deter us but should provide us the tools and experiences for not repeating the things due to which we failed. In fact in a ‘crisis’ situation, there is always a silver lining – an opportunity is always there. Need is to explore possibility of trying again for new opening and then the reality dawns. We should never over-awed by the ‘crisis’ but we should not lose ourselves in the bargain. If one path is filled with road-blocks, there is every possibility to take another path. For a person filled with optimism, there is always opening, another dawn.
    It should always be kept in mind that failure should not deter us for taking course correction and another ‘starting point’ could be explored. The example of Pepin in French Education is very interesting.
    The points enunciated are obviously very relevant and need to be practically used but one thing should never be forgotten that these are more relevant for smaller countries. What when countries involved are with more population and with less economical standings? The author should made deeper study and widened its scope to cover all economices – small, medium and large ones.
    Conclusively, the written material provided by the author is really very relevant and if followed with determination and with positivity can stand us in good stead. It is also a fact that FAILURE SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN AS FAILURE FOR GOOD but should be considered as one more challenge to be taken head-on. Fight and not fright in the face of failure then only we shall realise the true VALUE OF FAILURE. We failed because we have not put in our best so have to try again and God willing everything will fall in line for making us successful.
