One of the requirements for a CEO to be loved by the nation is that he has to be a leader of the masses. Befitting the above pre-requisite is Mr. Manohar Parrikar. Although he is not actually a CEO, he is a great leader and would make a great CEO.
Had the incumbent finance minister, Arun Jaitley continued holding his initial set of ministries on his own, the humble face of India’s most loved CEO, Mr. Manohar Parrikar would not have found a spot on the foremost page of numerous national dailies.
Formerly, while Manohar Parrikar was the Chief Minister of Goa, the Goans exerted unconditional love for him. All of it can be credited to his humility. Unlike his counterparts, who form the nucleus of a templated set of commandos, the citizens were quite accustomed to finding the Chief Minister of Goa state shopping vegetables in the market and shaking hands with people he met. The reachability of this CEO is probably the basis of his popularity.
Allotment of the Defence Ministry was clearly an escalation of his responsibilities. However, the CEO fulfilled his new duties impressively through his initiatives which clearly asserted within it, the welfare of armed personnel. Taking care of those who work under him, has always been a part of his gesture.
The Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and CEO Mr. Parrikar have something in common. Both of the prominent CEOs abruptly refuse to follow a mundane dress code. This feature of the CEOs coming from two nations at opposite ends of the globe is symbolic of a bigger statement. This clearly exerts that they constitute the entities of a free world and even the paltry shackles of a uniform are what they deny to bend over.
Not even remotely allured to his office, Mr. Parrikar is a believer in work rather than rhetorics. Thus, his actions speak for him instead of his words. And, what he has for wealth and power is pure apathy. These qualities make him a responsible leader of our nation.
During a rescue operation of the Indians in Yemen, Mr. Parrikar himself travelled to the troubled country to mitigate the horrors of those entrapped there. It is this valorous and unprecedented act of the CEO that contributes majorly towards granting him the rubric of being India’s most loved one.
His recent initiatives providing equal opportunities to women in defence forces have been towards gender empowerment. This is the first time such an initiative is in place, even after almost 70 years of being independent. Thus, we can clearly consider that the CEO is most legitimate one at his position.
It is because of his considerate nature, his reformist initiatives and his wise actions that Mr. Parrikar could be India’s most loved CEO.
