Super KM Champion

This delightful creature was constructed by a bunch of KM activists in a client organisation, and then rendered by our regular artist Joseph Tey. Note the bulletproof skin! Being a KM champion is obviously not an easy task – we’ve drawn up a set of Guidelines on how to spot potential activists, appoint them, and support them, but if you like, just print out this picture and go looking!

smile In India, one of the Gods we worship - called Ganesha - has the head of an elephant. And what’s more, Ganesha is the God of success/victory - the God who removes obstacles!!! :D

Yes, in fact when we saw the draft drawings from our KM activists, Ganesha came immediately to mind, so we suggested this as a theme… but I didn’t know that he was the god of victory… thanks!

Ganesha is a favourite/role model of mine.

I have always felt that the way Ganesha removes obstacles is very pertinent to KM. He rides on a rat - to depict his cunning & wily nature.

Ganesha is also strongly associated with writing & knowledge transfer. He broke off one of his tusks to scribe the words of the Mahabharata as spoken by Vyasa.

So I am mightly pleased that this theme emerged…

I also spotted the similarity to Ganesha - particularly after just being in your part of the world last week!  Wikipedia also refers to Ganesha as “the lord of beginnings”. 
He also is considered the god of intellect and wisdom - appropriate.

He is also “said to be the most worshipped divinity in India”.  Would that it were so for KM champions…

Thanks again for the iKMS session - it was good to catch up with a few people there!
