Three dorms were evacuated as the gunmen holed up in a fourth and Kenyan Defense Forces surrounded the campus "I am saddened to inform the nation that early today terrorists attacked Garissa

started personalising their problems I realised the difficulties of their lives in depth The exploitation of one’s body the trade of body is never easy Hence there is always an anger So ‘maine sab

Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Charulata Ravi Kumar | Updated: May 23 2014 9:26 am Connecting with your audience and their needs and aspirations is key to all great presentations Related News Like a billion others I too waited with bated breath for Narendra Modi’s first post-election speeches in Vadodara and Ahmedabad Apart from the many opinions that the media the opposition India Inc and the aam aadmi will proffer over weeks to come I couldn’t help but be mesmerised by Modi’s oratorical skills The speech was in impeccable Hindi yet the nation and the world got his message Loud sharp and clear Here are some unmissable presentation tips from Modi’s speech So try these next time you face an audience and want to make a similar impact One spontaneity must be orchestrated While Sonia Gandhi often fumbled with speech sheets every speech of Modi’s appeared to come straight from the heart of his fiery determination Your speech must be rehearsed and purposeful but come through as a spontaneous flow of thoughts and intent For this a lot of homework is required Two connect with the right mood and words Modi has spent a lot of time understanding India’s angst and the frustrations of the Indian youth And while others spent their energies slandering the opposition he was focused on two key thoughts — good governance and development Note that these two words were consistently repeated in both Hindi and English So all who want it were able to understand his intent and retain those two words Why Because he wants to be evaluated on just these two parameters with no reference to the past Three present long-term commitments not short-term gimmicks The AAP failure could be ascribed among other things to speeches promising short-term benefits and then failing Overnight turnarounds of damage done over decades is a foolish dream Presenting a more solid vision especially if you have demonstrated success in the past is more credible The means to achieve it should be the supporting strategy and must not become the vision itself Four have a clear idea of the next action you want from your audience Modi wants India to give him time 10 years to be precise His reference to 40 years of the past leading to India’s sorry state of affairs is a way of getting people to see 10 years (two terms) as a reasonable timeframe for his government to show change He wants the nation’s patience and support for 10 years and not seek a change of government in the next term Five lead the presentation but let the team be involved Nothing is more annoying than having asix-member team with five as sitting dummies While Modi was delivering his speech his leaders (like Nitin Gadkari Amit Shah and RaviShankar Prasad) were lending strong support and solidarity and came across as an integrated team (addressing a concern people hadabout the BJP) Six choose the right time Modi cleverly chose the 9 pm prime-time slot to deliver his speech ensuring that all of India would be able to hear him Understanding the right time for your audience is crucial We had a client who was always happy on Friday afternoons and perhaps never figured out why he loved our presentations on Fridays so much and approved them faster Seven align your body to your mind and heart Body language is often an important reason for a pathetically failed or dramatically successful presentation Study Modi’s gestures and actions as he speaks to people He moves from side to side seemingly making eye contact with everyone Then every time he mentioned the word “vikas” two fingers would rise to point ahead into the future And every time he uttered “hum sab” his fist clenched with all fingers tightly held to portray strength in unity The words “acchhe din” were accompanied by a smile echoed by “aayenge” from the crowd He used his large frame to his advantage standing erect at all times and making himself seem larger than life his open-arm gestures indicative of a large-hearted inclusiveness Eight know the power of voice modulation A refreshing change from the plastic monotonous speeches of many Indian politicians Modi heightened the drama through his loud proclamations smoothed by his gentle pauses and synchronised with his hand gestures to evoke passion power and drive All that communicated his commitment to the people unlike Priyanka Gandhi’s feeble attempts to evoke empathy and sympathy for her family and the Congress’s or Arvind Kejriwal’s banter which was less about their visions and more about others’ faults Nine know your gamechanging three points “Hamara Desh” for others became “Mera Bharat” for Modi The Nehru-Gandhi legacy was changed to “woh platform par chai bechne wallah bachcha aaj aapke saamne khada hai” He changed the game from the unity of India to the development of India He shifted the battlefield and the “sava sau karode” army shifted with him Connecting with your audience and their needs and aspirations is the key to all great presentations But for this you must also have a strong connect with your inner self Only then will your belief and commitment show through Great presentations are a synchronised play of art and science but just the beginning on the road to becoming a leader of tomorrow In any case why subject your audience to boring speeches when you can delight them enough to desire an encore The writer

(File Photo) Top News The Delhi government’s labour department has been very inactive between 2011 and 2015 according to the CAG report In the last five years the department has a pendency rate of 58

labour laws and Acts and that “pendency does occur occasionally” “The issue will be taken on a campaign basis to liquidate pendency” an official said Of 16373 complaints filed by workers not paid wages under the Minimum Wages Act in three of the nine revenue districts surveyed in the CAG report inspections were carried out by inspecting officers only in 4432 complaints (27 per cent) The Act mandates a physical inspection of every factory or shop by inspecting officers The Labour department has also not brought in any mechanism to maintain a database on the number of shops establishments factories and the workers employed by them As a result the government has not ascertained which establishments are supposed to register with them and how many contractors have valid licences the CAG

under the Contract Labour (Registration and Abolition) Act Under the Factories Act a mere 10 to 11 per cent factories were physically inspected before licences were issued and only 38 to 50 per cent
