People's profit

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

There was something called the bhoodan movement in India initiated by

Vinoba Bhave. It was about those having excess land giving it to the landless. That was a great non-profit movement idea. But what really happened is that people were spurred enough to give away but just enough to give away wastelands ONLY. Some achievement, but one wonders if it's about satisfying...

Can NGOs and political parties be the same> Can pol parties float NGOs?

What happens when a political party says it has targetted to float a certain number of NGOs? Isn't this something contrary to non-profits? Isn't there supposed to be a distinct line of difference between non-profits and political parties. I am not suggesting that NGOs should not be political. We all... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes I get butterflies in my stomach looking at the way non-profits

function. In the name of collectives, they ensure the whole things slides on one or two persons perpetually. In the name of hierarchy, they throw their weight around. In the name of being non-profits, they make a claim to non-transparency. Why? There's nothing different about labour rights of people... Sign in to see full entry.

"Don't give a person fish, teach him how to fish" is still the credo of

many non-profits, but I guess over time it needs to evolve with the current challenges. Maybe we need to talk about making sure that we unitedly fight to make sure that the fish resources are not depleted and destroyed by irresponsible mechanised fishing and by other invasive interventions in the...

Cream cheese, golf, wrinkle!

If people at a non-profit are constantly seen eating cream cheese, playing golf and looking wrinkled with all the pampering, it's not something odd these days, cos there is a distinct corporatisation and co-option of non-profits happening Sign in to see full entry.

Can a Government-aided body or agency be a people's profit?

Surely not 'cos people's profit which is meant to be communitarian is the very anti-thesis of the State Sign in to see full entry.

Should people's profits complement each other's work?

That's what I thought they should. But what one finds is that they are steppin on each other's toes and there are whole areas that are very challenging and that lie completely unattended. Maybe there's no money in them, maybe it's not the kind of work that will fetch popularity. Sign in to see full entry.

Competitiveness should conceptually be uncharacteristic of a non-profit

But it appears that the non-profit is sometimes becoming just another corporate enterprise, or they haven't really thought through why they are a non-profit. Or else how does one explain the competitiveness rather than the conviction driving its functioning? One would normally have said the more the... Sign in to see full entry.

People's profit can only happen when diverse interests meet

and where specially the interests of various marginalised sections are factored in. This is the elementary truth that I think we need to contend with or else we are always seeking to exclude thereby making wholistic justice and profit impossible. What say? Sign in to see full entry.

Some people's profits sometimes have some high profile persons who...

who work little and gas much and profit at the cost of the hard working people in the same non-profits. Something seriously wrong here. The concept of people's profit is about giving credit where credit is due. From each according to his ability to each according to his needs. But what we find is... Sign in to see full entry.
