Bring on the madness!

Spring is on and with that the day light savings is in. While the debate continues as to the benefits of such time-shifts you would have already lost an hour of sleep from your Circadian rhythm (bio-rhythm). Now, add the NCAA basket ball/bracket frenzy to this month and it certainly brings a madness in every one!

Recently a North Dakota man was fined twice within an hour for speeding more than 100 mph. His genuine reason - he could not keep track of his speedometer while driving! GE reported recently that a 100 year old bulb found in Nela park facility at Ohio still shines. Unbelievable, right? In another news, a man in Dormant, Pennsylvania returned overdue library books from 1920s. It was borrowed by his father or uncle and was never retuned. If a 5 cent fine is computed from the day it was borrowed, it totals out to $1600. Not sure whether he paid or was asked to pay. Hope he was not asked to pay!

By the way, madness is not a bad thing. Without a little madness, we may never invent new things or evolve out of our comfort zone. As David Cronenberg said "Everybody is a mad scientist and life is their lab. We are all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend of madness and chaos." So bring on madness, let it sow the seeds for great minds!

In this issue, we have picked contents to relive your March madness. Along with those we have hand picked additional contents on Sales profession, Employee recognition, Women's day and Origami (paper art) images to celebrate the 100th birthday of Japanese Origami founder Yoshizawa Akira. Read, enjoy, share and relieve your madness!

Too much sanity may be madness ...


“Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all:
to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”

- Dale Wasserman, Man of La Mancha
