Adidas vs Puma: Story of two greatest brands

IntroductionToday we will know about the story of Adidas and Puma. Very few people know that Adidas and Puma were founded by two brothers, Adolf Dassler and Rudolf Dassler. We will also see how they became enemies and created the world's best shoe companies. Obviously, most of us do not know how the Dassler brothers became enemies and hence we will explore this fact today. We all know that Adidas and Puma are one of the biggest sports shoe brands in the world. Adolf Dassler founded Adidas and Rudolph Dassler founded Puma.
Initial DaysBoth Adolf and Rudolph grew up in a very poor family of Germany and their father used to work in a shoe company. Their father taught them about the intricacies of the shoe business. Soon dazzler family started making home-made slippers. These slippers became quite popular in the town of Dazzler's family. After a few years, the Dazzler brothers started a sports shoe company and the company was named "The Dazzler Brothers Sports Shoe Company&q…

Coronavirus Lockdown: Best use of this time

Yami Gautam with Bhagavad Gita
Did this lockdown period restrict you to go out? We know that you want to go out and enjoy nature but as Robert H. Schuller once said that "Tough times never last, but tough people do.” We need to spend this time at home and definitely, that time will come when we will be free to go out anywhere. Just think if this COVID lockdown happened 10 years back then at that time we might not have so many free and informative resources that are now available over the internet. I have observed so many people who are in the abyss of grief just because of this lockdown. So many people are talking about the lockdown and predicting the future of the earth. Don't worry as these people were also there when this lockdown was not there, at that time they were in fear of so many other things but now they are together and thinking about this problem and giving tips to cricketers, movie-stars, and even politicians. Today we will suggest five different ways by which you can learn very useful things in the comfort of your home.
1. Listen or Read Books online: This is the best time to subscribe to audiobook platforms. According to inc.com, the average CEO used to read 4-5 books every month i.e., 60 books annually. There's a very famous saying in India that Blind uncle is better then no uncle and similarly, if we directly target 5 books every month then our morale may get down but let's target to complete at least 2 books in this lockdown. Do you think why CEOs and other famous personalities used to read so many books? They know that our life is short and every experience cannot be taken on ourselves to learn a lesson but so many lessons can be learned by reading/listening to informative books. Apart from these books, we can also read transcendental books like Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam and Bhagavad Gita as material problems have a spiritual solution.

2. Join relevant online courses: Coronavirus lockdown has put a brake on our activities and we are experiencing a longing for our regular office work and projects. But surely Coronavirus cannot put a brake on our determination, do you know there are websites which are providing professional diplomas in skills like photography, digital marketing, Microsoft Excel, etc. So search for those courses and enhance your skills.
3. Work from home: Now vacancies are not available in the market but some companies are providing work from home. We must give our hundred percent towards our work in these difficult times.
4. Listen to useful TedTalks: TedTalks are the best way to grab knowledge about a variety of topics. TedTalks can improve your rational thinking and it's better than spending time on irrelevant videos or TikTok.
5. Improve your writing skills: Good writing skills can help you personally and professionally. People remember how you reply to their questions and it leaves an impression upon them. Initially, you can start with writing articles over social media like Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter and subsequently, you can start writing a blog.

Warren Buffett: Top 10 Rules For Success Part 2

There was a story regarding a little sparrow in the jungle. She used to listen to the good thoughts of a spiritual teacher living in the jungle. One day there was a very big fire in the jungle and everyone was running from the jungle. 
Big and small animals were running away to save their lives. Suddenly they observed that little sparrow was flying far away from the jungle to take little water in her beak and trying to extinguish the fire of the jungle with that water. She had continued this for a while. Other animals started asking why she was doing so? does she become mad? She answered that whenever people will read the history of the jungle then I don't want to come in a list of animals who were just standing by or ran away. I want to come in a list of animals who tried their best to extinguish the fire. Similarly, we used to just stand and see how our career is getting doomed and do not take any concrete action. Warren Buffett is the kind of person who had tried his best and ac…
