I have recently finished reading "The World is Flat". This book is written by "Thomas Friedman". The book talks about the benefits of economy boom in countries like India, China, Vietnam & Mexico. It elaborately discusses the impact of the flat world and how it has changed the economic equation of the world. Fantastic Read - would happy to suggest it to anyone who is half serious reader.
There is one quote in the book which goes something like this -
"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn’t matter if you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better be running.
What an amazing quote - it inspires you to the core.
