981: Optimization In Life

Optimization is a mathematical technique,
Gets you the optimum even when it’s not unique,
Constraints restrict the feasible options,
Lesser the constraints better is the solution,
Complicated constraints may spoil your function,
Though the objective takes you to a very close junction,

Life is not as mathematical,
Constraints are values and ethical,
Optimum may most often be infeasible,
Still can’t afford violation of ethics becoming visible,
Got to take hard decisions and reformulate your problem,
Can’t compromise on basic ethics and values at the helm.
