We approach problem solving in a holistic manner. We do not ask for help. We do. We have to design our problem solving in such a way that it is a for-profit activity for our partners and scalable. We do not want a single business that is a stand-alone as that is only one economic unit. We want a business where we can get 1,000 units which employ 20 persons or more directly. With one effort we have created 20,000 jobs and the management can be done with few resources from our side. Look at TIGER STORES, VIEW TIGER STORES. it is a perfect example.
It is unrealistic to expect others to solve our problems only from the goodness of their heart. People somehow are more willing to participate in solving problems, when in doing so, it also solves their problem of day-to-day living.
Vissitudes: The Solution to Water shortages onboard ships carrying slaves were to throw them overboard. An example of poor problem-solving.

Imagine the rush of doing something few or no one has been able to do! This is our motivation. We are not trying to help any one, we are selfishly thinking about our children. Our children will want to breath one day - so we have to think of the quality of the air. Does any of you not breath? Since we’re now able to rely on renewable energy sources for our power consumption and the top 50% of the dirtiest power generation resources could be retired early, using the latest technology in power generation - we focus our energy in this direction. We can now have cleaner, smaller, and more resilient energy grids, that can be deployed quickly for use in both urban and rural settings. This was like the change from land line telephones to mobile telephones. Tesla is an energy innovation company based in Palo Alto, California.

The Zong massacre was the mass murder of an estimated 132 – 142 enslaved Africans by the Crew of the Slave ship Zong in the days following 29 November 1781. The ship was owned by the Gregson Slave-trading Syndicate, based in Liverpool, which participated in the Atlantic slave trade. As was common business practice, they had taken out insurance on the lives of the slaves as cargo.
When the ship ran low on potable water following navigational mistakes, the crew threw slaves overboard into the sea to drown, in order that the remainder could survive. Chains would be attached to them to make sure their bodies remained at the bottom of the sea. After the slave ship reached port at Black River, Jamaica, the owners of the Zong made a claim to their insurers for the loss of the slaves. When the insurers refused to pay, the resulting court cases (Gregson v Gilbert (1783) Doug. KB 232) held that in some circumstances, the deliberate killing of slaves was legal and that insurers could be required to pay for the slaves' deaths. Do Not Blindly Obey the Law.
The judge, Lord Chief Justice, the Earl of Mansfield, ruled against the syndicate owners in this case, due to new evidence being introduced suggesting the captain and crew were at fault. Following the first trial, freed slave Olaudah Equiano brought news of the massacre to the attention of the anti-slavery campaigner Granville Sharp, who worked unsuccessfully to have the ship's crew prosecuted for murder. Because of the legal dispute, reports of the massacre received increased publicity, stimulating the abolitionist movement in the late 18th and early 19th centuries; the Zong events were increasingly cited as a powerful symbol of the horrors of the Middle Passage of slaves to the New World. The non-denominational Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade was founded in 1787. The next year Parliament passed the first law regulating the slave trade, to limit the number of slaves per ship. The massacre has also inspired works of art and literature. It was commemorated in London in 2007, among events to mark the bicentenary of the British Slave Trade Act 1807, which abolished the African Slave Trade. A monument to the killed slaves of the Zong was installed at Black River, Jamaica, their intended port.
