Dear Colleagues,

Three guys, named “STATUS QUO”, NO-NONSENSE” and “NO GOING BACK” are marooned in a no-man’s island for a long time.”Status Quo” was dominating over the other two and made their life miserable.

One day,”Status Quo” was walking along the beach and tripped over an oil lamp. There was a puff of smoke, and then a huge Genie came oozing out. He said, "I can grant you one wish"; but “Status Quo” told the genie that he must first grant one boon each to his other two friends. Genie agreed.

“No Nonsense” asked genie that he wanted to go home and be with his family. Instantly genie sent him to join his family.

“No Going Back”, asked genie that he wanted to go home and get married to a beautiful girl. Genie granted his wish.

Now “Status Quo” was alone. When asked by genie to wish for a boon, he said “I want ‘No Nonsense’ here and also ‘No Going back’. Gene knowing the intensions of “Status Quo” interpreted that the guy was serious and did not want to move out of the island. Gene told him “Be it so” and disappeared. 

Poor “Status Quo”; he was alone in the island.


- If you are not willing to change, you get trapped in the older ways while others make progress

- Nothing is static; it either gets better, or it gets worse.  So why not make it better?
