India is a land of Gurus. Be it any community, we can find thousands of Ashrams, Sanghs & Maths, where we can find groups of sanyasis. While all Sanyasis are equally learned, having knowledge of same shlokas, mantras, prarthnas & shashtras, only a few of them are able to make their name. They are like a celebrity with a huge fan following.
Do you know? Why?
Because, only a few of them have the ability to express their ideas, present them to the audience and handle the questions asked to them. Don't you think the same thing happens even with Chartered Accountants, MBAs, Professionals and Graduates?
Imagine a Chartered Accountant sitting in the corner of a workstation accomplishing the work assigned to him. Compare him to another Chartered Accountant meeting with other people, sharing his ideas with his superiors and handling questions of his subordinates.
Success is determined by so many factors such as academics, presentation skills, interpersonal skills & soft skills. Academics is just a means. Groom yourself to add accessories to your academic qualifications.
