Awareness is life (Column: Spy's Eye)
It is interesting that of all the professions it is a career in Intelligence that works for sublimating three important mandates that governed life. First of all, being well informed about the people of interest for you -- in both the work area and the personal sphere -- brings in success in any field. For national security, all information about the thinking, plans and movement of the leaders of a hostile country had to be accessed, collated and evaluated and in business also similar initiatives had to be taken for studying the rivals. In personal life too, one had to be aware of whatever was happening to one's family, friends and supporters to appropriately respond to them. Life itself, it can be said, is all about interacting with other human beings and hence an awareness of human psyche, behaviour and emotions helps to wade through it successfully at the workplace or at home.
