“The Journey Is The Destination.”

The early years of one's life moulds a person's character. Your family environment, schools , close circle of friends all determine the formation of your personality, behaviour and mannerisms.

My involvement in the family's business at an early age,helped me in to understand myself. My interests and leanings better. I was always driven towards strategy based games which needed an understanding of people rather than just using physical strengths. This led to me choosing Chess as my extracurricular activity in school. I found I had a natural flair for it and soon played in competitions.

Since my father had been a football player, he stressed up us taking up at least one sport so We could be physically active and disciplined throughout our life. Badminton was my sport of choice, the reason I enjoyed it so much was that my elder sister was an excellent player and had very lovingly been teaching me to play. I find this game also very intelligent as one could predict and learn the behavior of a person, his endurance and mindset. Ultimately I competed in school badminton championships as well.

Being born in a Kshatriya Rajput warrior clan, my family's inclination for self defense had always been strong. I was motivated to learn Karate but after attaining an orange belt my interest waned. All that physical labor was taking its toll. I was looking for something more relaxing. My father's fascination with guns got me inclined towards Rifle Shooting. We had a shooting range in our farm house where I had a great time practicing on the weekends.

My teachers had encouraged me to participate in various activities during my school and college days such as social debates, GK quizzes ,essay writing competitions etc. I took up as many as I could, and have many testimonials for the same.

 I made some amazing friends in college who shared similar passions in driving, travel, adventure sports, etc., and soon we formed a tight knit group and started taking small trips in nearby cities with equal parts driving and trekking. We have covered most of Northern India ,especially the states of J&K and HP. On a memorable trip on college break , we drove to the Indian borders with China and Pakistan. Driving my 4x4 in one of the highest motor-able pass in world is an experience I will never forget. We spent weeks in the most sensitive parts of the country, and took amazingly thrilling, oftentimes treacherous treks to various passes, nearby lakes and to centuries old monasteries nestled in the heart of the picturesque mountains.

My extensive travels to countries like  UK, Spain, South Korea, South Africa, Qatar, Switzerland, Nepal, Macau, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France,  Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, UAE, etc with family and friends has piqued my interest in learning about different cultures. I read, write and speak 2 languages fluently (English & Hindi) and learning a 3rd(French).

I have also participated in many management, development and training programs organized by Mahindra, Hero Honda and other companies & Institutes. Recently I have been selected for a Management transformation program at IIM, Bangalore (Indian Institute Of Management). Which will be held in 2nd week of February, 2015.

Since I had a keen interest in trekking since my college days, last year I took up the challenge to trek  up to the Mt. Everest Base Camp. It was a  rigorous 15 day long  trip from Lukla, Nepal. When a few of my fellow Trekkers, who had good physical strength and training couldn't complete the trek and dropped out, I lost heart. In the absence of the rigorous training compared to them I was dreading the time when my body would give up and to halt my journey. But as it had to be, I successfully completed the trek in time with surprising ease, realising the tremendous importance of mental & psychological strength in surpassing physical barriers. This was a huge lesson learnt that sometimes the "journey is the destination" and all we need to do is to believe in our self.

We can do just about everything we want in life if we are determined and devoted and "Never Give Up”. 

"Joining Family Business @ Early Age"

 It is a general opinion that  kids with thriving family businesses have a comfortable ride in life. But that is not always the case. Working with your family member has its own set of problem and limitations.

In Year 1999, When I was 13 years old and in standard 7th like any other teenage boy, cars have always been one of the major attractions in my life. And being surrounded with automobiles since birth it has taken this interests into a new heights. We used to have dealerships of 2 wheelers, 3 wheelers, cars, trucks, jeeps, tractors etc. and with such wide variety of machines at my disposal my fascination grew into an obsession.

Unlike my friends my after school activities changed from cricket and badminton to hanging out with my elder brother and my uncle in our dealerships. Being given a firsthand knowledge of the latest in bikes, cars and technology gave me a advantage over other kids my age who could only talk about comics, sports and movies.

I convinced some of our workshop staff to take me out to learn how to ride a Moped on our family property and soon a 4 wheeler. I felt  like a fish that doesn’t need any training for swimming , it came naturally to me. I was riding mopeds and bikes and cars within a year and felt that now that I can drive I can do anything in life. It wasn't all that as I soon realised, after a  small and one major accident, and my family's knowledge of my extracurricular activities, I became very cautious, but it was all part of the learning process.

In the Year 2000, Destiny has some other plans for Me. Due to some unavoidable circumstances myfather and uncle went their separate ways and my father being the chief promoter got a huge responsibility of running the entire business alone. Both me and brother had this sudden sense of growing up and filling my uncle's space. We were itching to prove that we were worthy. I felt that ishould help him, what was a hobby for me become a duty and religion. Both of us started going to office regularly after school hours and started taking responsibilities in whatever way we can. Despite of the fact that our father was very uncomfortable that were coming to work, and that we should be devoting more time in studies. We started giving more time and taking active role in business. I started looking after the two wheeler dealership and my elder brother after the tractor business. As i had some knowledge about the technical aspects of the bikes I started communicating with customers who visited the showroom and started selling bikes. Once when I heard office mangers discussing that this particular model is not selling. I took an initiative to display and demonstrate that model to the customers and with the support of the senior staff we managed to sell a few. This changed their attitude just from indulging me as the boss's kid to someone who had some potential.

Few months with this work I realized that we didn’t have enough snazzy accessories and with my father permission, I set a small boutique for the same after procuring the items through a 3rd party vendor whose reference I got through a local shop.

My first solo venture was a huge success as I learned by practically working :

1)Customer Handling 

2)Sales Closure 

3)Purchase Planning 

4)Inventory & FILO

5)Vendor Management 

6)Cash Flow

7)Pricing & Negotiating  

8)Staff Handling 



Within 2 years I was given charge of handling the 2 wheeler dealership (Hero Honda Motors Ltd) . It was extremely satisfactory for me, when my father recognized the increase in sales and customer satisfaction. This motivated me to be more engaged with the staff and With my new confidence I made them aware of drawbacks and discussed new strategy planning.

By the time I was in Grade 11th I was the sole in-chargeof two dealerships (Hero Honda & Hyundai Cars) . All I had to do is find a way to communicate to the management and balance my studies and work. Which I was successfully able to because my father owned the business and I knew in and out of it. It was in my blood. Being the third generation in a family of auto dealers , I felt it was my destiny to follow in their footsteps. I was so young that our customers used to get shocked at times and also pleased with my knowledge. Reminiscing about those days always brings a smile to my face.

Things started rolling and i got more and more involved ,but as my father has always been very determined about our education I was forced to leave for my higher studies.

But I remained in touch with my staff throughout and despite of my prolonged absence they continued to perform well. I remember rushing back on my breaks whenever I could. It paid off. My determination was rewarded when I joined back again after 4 years , I was been given more authority and  responsibility in the business.

Since then I have expanded in : 

1) 2 New Dealerships (Mahindra & Navistar Trucks).

2) Education Sector.

3) Finance Company (Auto Loan).

4) Insurance Brokerage Company.

5) Centralized Call Centre For Group Services & Promotions.

6) Managing a NGO for Social Welfare.

7) Co-Founder In Media Company (Daily Hindi Newspaper).

8) Co-Founder In Mining Company (Mining Of Minerals).

9) IT/ERP Implementation Across Group.


I have always believed in the saying: “The Champion Of Working Man Is Never Yet Been Known To Die Of Over Work”

Into The Doubt Zone

In my life i have done many travels But the journey to Himalayas changed me and my life for Good.

Many people ask me why you went up there? What did you learn? How was it? When is your next trip? and Where to ?

Seriously people, maybe i can answer your question but whatever i may say it will never be the Truth and complete or  explain what it was and how it was. There aren't enough words to express the true feeling and emotions which you feel while doing the journey to the Himalayas through the various Mountains, Forest, Paths, Water, Air & Life.

While many people do take this kind of journey often, but many people can't even imagine doing this even once in there lifetime. It challenges not only our Physical abilities but our Mental and Psychological  strength as well. When you take a long journey of 15 days and when you are far away from a basic thing like the presence of Oxygen and breathing becomes difficult, your mind starts asking millions of questions and  you start doubting on the world forget yourself.

The Doubt Zone

Why i even signed up for this trip? Where am i? What is going on? Why should i do this?

and Lastly the most repeating :


These questions keep popping in your head like a spam pop up you get on your browser when you open a website which has a virus to hang your system.

While these questions are also like virus which pops up to hang your body and mental abilities and trust me many people get infected by it and retreat.

Some Sense Of Humor..!!

Human Body , Karma & Actions.

                     The Most Difficult, Yet Soo Simple...!!

I sometime fail to understand why we are the way we are?? Then i realize we are made very logically and intelligently by our creators(FYI : I Liked The Concept In Prometheus And Matrix) and So that no matter what happens our body, its functions never ever stops until and unless there is some Physical abuse and disturbance to it.

The human brain considered one of the most vital, critical, sophiscated, agile, important, smartest and technologicaly advanced organ or system known to us.

In human body the Mind has been programmed soo brilliantly that no matter what happens the ROM commands in the nervous(Brain) system which functions like a BIOS of computer and keeps the default functions operational at all Time.

We believe that this Body is ours and its in our control but its not Right, we are not even a Operator of it, we are more like a passenger who is traveling and passing through for a limited time.

As rightly defined by many Religions and preachers and philosophers that Body and Soul are two different entities wherein the life of body is limited to a certain period after which we wont be able to use it any further.

The Concept of soul preaching is also wrong, the only concept which is right and can be logically defined is "Karma."

Because whatever we do good results in good vibrations and whatever we do bad results in Negative Vibrations, in this world wherein we know now with proof that whatever we say never gets lost or in simpler terms dies, how come we fail to believe and understand that whatever wrong we do will also stay and come back to us, Period..!!

Everything we do, say, act, think : Stays Intact, Very much here only and later on we call it as the Karma, it comes back after completing its journey and circle at the right time  to get you for all the rights and wrongs and then we are rewarded or penalized depending upon our conducts, on how you treated yourself and others.

The human body is made with some basic functions which no matter what happens at all the time for example :

1)Breathe: In Hale and Exhale

By these functions I want to clearly state that we are just a mere Passengers in this human body form which keeps its primary functions always on wether we like it or not, it's like a plane on Auto Pilot mode wherein we don't even have access or control to switch the auto pilot off. 

With our souls ever travelling and evolving in different kinds, we should never confuse ourselves as the owner of it.

We are here to perform and do the "Karma".

PollTricks & The Second Life

                                The Use Of Technology In Elections & Life

The 21st century  has bought a lot of change in the Indian Society, it's getting more matured and technologically advanced in every field.The Politics is also not left out and making its presence felt in every nook and corner.

If your personally ask me i would rate Mr.Narrendra Modi & BJP(Bhartiya Janta Party) at forefront & pioneer in india for bringing this Change, it's enabling and reaching the intellectual level of the people and places of the society which was untouched before.

While the use of SMS was years old now the social media is gaining momentum wether its Facebook or Twitter or Blogs or Website., Earlier internet was considered a medium to send low cost mails which was also not a legal documentation, but now with the Indian Law System getting advanced and open to accept the new Technologies its gaining momentum in every aspect. With the use of Digital Signatures the acceptability and cheap cost of Electronic space is acceptable to the masses.

The speed of light in communication is widely known but i got a first hand experience for its usage in politics during a recent Campaign of Shrimati.Sonia Gandhi and Shri.Narrendra Modi in there rallies at Chattisgarh where Mrs.Gandhi made a statement that we never count or big mouth or show or display what we have done for the Country and within few hours Mr.Modi in his campaign gave a response to her by Saying :
"Today madam (Sonia Gandhi) too is in Chhattisgarh. She also gave a speech. She said her party does not talk but does the work. Yes, her party does not speak. When coal was stolen, did they talk about it? Did they talk about the 2G scam?" he said amid loud cheers. "There is a scam under the ground, on the ground and even in the sky. Madam, you are right, you do everything without speaking. And what you talk about, you do not do. People know that," he said.

"Madam, the country is very smart. Our elders used to believe in your lies. Now, young people have woken up. Now the country won't accept your lies," he said.

Mr.Modi Makes the use of technology at the core wether its personal recorded voice phone calls or addressing the NRI's  abroad, He went a step ahead and had live dialogue with the public on Google+ Hangout, which gave him a International presence and connect with NRI's. Because of the past riot issues in Gujrat and specially the negative attitude of US towards him he is leaving no stone unturned to gain wide publicity even outside india. 

 The use of Twitter is gaining momentum like crazy, with the live twitter feed over National Televisions it is spreading like a whirl, lots of indian politicians are very famous for there regular tweets over apposition and remarks of the society.

The recent development of 4G Technology by Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries is going to bring a sea of change in how we communicate and in our daily routines. The massive project undertaken by him in his recently launched vertical named "Reliance Jio" Will give tough time to all players in Telecom, Television, Mailing and anyone who is in any sort of Communication or media business. What he wants to do is make a virtual life a real life in totality specially by how we communicate. Soon audio calling will be something like a Fax and Telegram which is no more in existence. With high data bandwidth the video calling will become dirt cheap and redefine the communication technology. The Only challenge left is making these devices reasonable so that it can reach to the masses, but what reliance did in past with there Monsoon Hungama in Infcomm Business the rest is better no to be written about and more over the expensive iPod, iPhone, iPad and iGeneration is making this possible, wherein people are ready to shell out there hard earned money just to be a part of IT.

Even in recent Campaigns of BJP and Mr.Modi in Delhi the 3D avatar branded as "MODI SHOW"was used for masses, which didn't got much response but yes off course it was redefining moment for everyone in the history of Indian Political System. With the concept like 3D avatar and live streaming in large mammoth size LCD during the Campaigns the future seems to be very bright for people in this space.

So the question arises are we heading towards the SECOND LIFE ?? The widely popular game of 21st century launched by the Linden Lab in 2003 named as Second Life which has over 33 Million registered users as of 2013. The game is redefining and life changing as you can OWN A HOUSE  and EARN MONEY TOO. The currency used in SL(Second Life) is Linden Dollar which has a exchange rate too and redeemable in the RL(Real Life) as well. Many people are getting into relationships and speeding hours and hours in SL. This concept is very popular and many people are meeting and getting married too because of SL the story of first married couple from US & UK in 2006 gained wide publicity. The SL has all the concept of RL wherein religion has also existence and many international Brands as Hardrock Cafe, Dell Computers, ABN AMRO BANK, BBC Radio ,Car Maker Mazda, Harvard & Imperial College have presence there. All these Significant Big names have visualized the future and the growing strong hold among the upcoming generation which is why everyone is in hurry to have presence in it.

So its your personal call wether you want to be part of this or FALL BEHIND.


                      The Maturing Indian Society & The Role Of Media.

"Everybody is right from their own point of view, but it is not impossible that everyone is wrong."                                                       - Mahatma Gandhi -

2013,  A year where the dynamics of the indian society has evolved and people have started to accept things which where earlier considered Taboo or even Illegal and Harmful.

Indians have started accepting this new change with there open minds and heart and this can be verified up-to certain extent with the Acceptance and Success of new TV Advertisements and Movies which has shaken the very the culture, traditions, rituals myths and concepts, It has made us realized the truth that we have to Evolve and People are Evolving and to a certain extent have Evolved.

The concept of Live In Relationship, Second Marriages, Love Marriages, Inter-Caste Marriages, Surrogate Child, Relationships, Premarital Sex, Young Girls Falling For Older Guys or Vice a Versa, Breakups, Gay And Lesbian Sexuality, Matrimony search through internet all are gaining momentum and people are open about these concepts & acceptance is coming from even the rural parts of the country.

The century old International and one of the Largest Indian Business house, TATA Group has become the Pioneer in driving and taking this BIG MOVE., There two Brands Tanshiq, which deals with Ornaments & Jewellry Business and Fastrack which is into trendy bags, Eye Glasses and  gears have showcased this in there recent advertisement where a ordinary looking girl gets married to a decent looking guy and the girl family is happily getting her married by showering her with Fine and exclusive jewelry and her 6-7 years old Daughter peeks into the whole ceremony then requests her mother to make her part of the Phera where her mother refuses for the same but her father to be picks her up and makes her the part of the ritual and then the daughter is Full of Joy and Mother has a sign of Relief and Satisfaction on her face, then in the end the daughter asks : "Can I Call You Daddy From Today?" The advertisement states "A Wedding To Remember".

Another Big Brand Fastrack by TATA group only in recent  showcased many Advertisements which are very progressive a mindset which is bogged down and considered taboo earlier but with the evolving young youth and defeated society rules its gaining popularity and the whole family watches these advertisement on National Channels, the recent 5 TV advertisement of the brand wherein they showcased five different Taboo concept of Lesbian relationship, Pre Marital Sex, Live In, Mature Relationship & PDA.

Wherein the first and most recent advertisement There is a Pink closet which is shaking and then  Two girls walks out from a closet and sets there dresses, wherein one girl is a cute sophisticated pink dress and the other is in a more masculine outfit, after the get out they stare at each other and start walking in opposite direction. Then the  advertisement states : "Get Out Of The Closet & Move On".The short and crispy advertisement showcases how the indian youth of the country is evolving and ready to accept and change with the new Concepts.

The second advertisement states Blame Fastrack wherein a girl wakes up with a half naked boy in bed walks out of Boys hostel and dresses up on the way and states "Blame Fastrack" and "Move On". The society for youth is very difficult as they are being blamed for everything so this advertisement states that the new age Girls are here to enjoy and they don't have any regrets for getting what makes them happy and satisfied.

This advertisement states don't blame us, "Blame Fastrack" and Move On.

The third advertisement is where a couple cuddling and while making there Temporary Air Home which is a deliberately put to state that these Live In relationships are not permanent and the girl makes cute face while the male is pumping the air in, the girl then holds the hand of the boy and takes him inside, which also means you take a step and then the females will lead on, then the advertisement  states " Live In" & "Move On" which means start living in and don't worry about the society.

The Fourth advertisement states a Married couple with there daughter and her boyfriend having a meal, The boyfriend is playing footsie with the Mother of his Girlfriend  and the father is eating food without any idea of what is going down and while the footsie continues even mother blushes and seems to enjoy the play and attention she is getting and the Advertisement states : " Mature Is In".

Few other advertisements by the same brand is very progressive which states Couple making out in cars and why hand brakes where made, A boy busy on phone and his Girl friends leaves the house and it states why answering machine was made, Virat Kohil and Genlea Starter advertisement where Virat has a hickey on his Neck and Genela covers it with his bag. All these advertisement shakes our concepts and old society rules, and specially when it comes from a Brand like TATA. 

When asked from the Marketing head of Fastrack and Titan Industries Simeran Bhasin states : "We Never Take The Role Of The Moral Police And Decide What The Line Is. The Campaign Just Reflects What's Happening In Youth's Life Today."

Which i strongly believe is very true, who are we to Judge what the LINE IS?? These are very sensitive and personal choices which can not be considered right or wrong its just a matter of personal preferences and how we take it.

The Old Spice TV Advertisment namely "Mantastic Man"starring the matured and good looking Milind Soman who is in his 50's with grey and showing a good shaped body, being rich and successful living in a fort having tea in a silver cup and a young female mesmerized and all over him, somewhere states that even society has accepted that females are looking for security and stability and they wouldn't mind being with older guys also if there aforementioned need is addressed.

The case of Amrita Singh & Saif Ali Khan who has a status of Nawab from Patadoi also raised a sensation when they two got married and divorced recently. 

The Concept and Advertisement of Bharat Matrimony and  is also very appreciated because it is helping the parents for finding the right kind of groom and bride for there kids and what is more surprising is the increasing number of Personal Profile posted by individuals looking for partners. Which is definitely very good as marriages has been very difficult in Indian Family Setting.

When we talk about people's personal life the recent two high profile cases of having Surrogate kids of Aamir Khan & Kiran  & Shahrukh Khan & Gauri Singh raised a eyebrow and gained a huge media attention, both being married in intercaste and having prior kids and having surrogates later. Even having surrogates kids is now becoming a part of society and everyone is accepting without any objections which was showcase in the Super hit movie staring Salman Khan,Rani Mukherjee and Preity Jinta named : "Chori Chori Chupke Chupke"

The movie Shudh Desi Romance starring Parreneti Chopra and  had a very strong message of Pre Marital Sex and Sex Relationship where in i can say its a Indian Version of Hollywood Movies "Friends With Benefits" starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kuins. The Latest released movie Ramleela which is based on "Romeo & Juilelt" is also a strong move by big directors like Sanjay leela Bhansali and wherein the senior actor like Amitabh Bacchan blogs that he has seen the movie thrice in 24 hours and craves for more. Not going far back the Super Starer Salman Khan & Katrina Kaif in "Ek Tha Tiger" showcased the Intercaste Marriage and controversial Pakistan Indian Relationship, involving ISI and RAW, not going back  Sharukh Khan & Preity Jinta's "Veer Zaara" was also based on similar story not to mention both very Super Duper Hit.

The movie like Pyaar Ka Punchnama openly talks about Live In relationship and Pre Meritial Sex, Wherin the Karan johar and multi super starter movie KANK(Kabhi Alvidha Na Kahne) showcased the crime of Passion and wired & twisted relationships between new age married couples. Few year old movie Life In A Metro was also a very good Example of extramarital affairs which had stars like Shilpa Shetty and Shiny Ahuja.

Movies like Cheeni Kum starring Amitabh Bacchan and Tabu and  Nishabd, Joggers Park openly talks about Mature relationships where in girls falls for mature guys and vice a versa.

These concepts are widely accepted and showcased in Hollywood and part of western culture and life, now we are also getting our own share of there culture with the rise of Globalization.

Wherein having a premarital sex & live in relationship is getting acceptability, becoming a unmarried mother is also somewhere starting to showcase in Bollywood now , Saif Ali Khan & Preity Jinta Starter Saalam Namaste showcased this beautifully wherein the couples had there issue and Saif was not ready to become a father wherein because of Contraceptive failure, Preity accidentally becomes. It states there beautiful journey of Life through Ups & Downs.

The common slangs and PDA was widely displayed in Aamir Khan Produced and Imran Khan starter Delhi Belly wherein the song Bhag DK Bose become a national sensation and controversy,The movie also has a song with lines like "Daddy Mujshe Bole Tu Galti Hain Mere". Wherein Kalki starter That Girl In Yellow Boots showcases the bold new young women doing sexual work for living hood and finding his lost father.

So what's there to gain for the Advertisement Company and Movie Makers, well as we all now the circle  of life, where we start from it ends at the same spot, we are also somewhere in the same circle with the showcase of these progressive contents, In the lack of fresh and innovate ideas showcasing truth is far more acceptable, cheap and redefining. The concept of Reality TV is a living proof wherein the serials like Master Chef, Big Boss, Swammbar, Indian Idol, Roadies, Kaun Banega Crorepati is a Huge Success.

Its not only the media which is evolving, the society at large is also not lagging behind, the CBI director giving a statement like making Cricket Betting LEGAL was definitely a bold move but yes he had strong logic and definitely it will lead to fair games and better Vigilant and stopping the use of BLACK MONEY. 

While reading a Book called Freakonomics there was a concept where it showed how Prosperity and Depression effects the Crime Rate, the author gave a very good insight and logic which stated that Crime Rate is directly related to Prosperity of people, whenever there is ecnomoic slow down it leads to Job Cuts and it enhances the crime rate including Suicides and Bankruptcy.

The latest news of Making Marijuana(Cannabis) Legal in some parts of US hasn't shocked anyone, when people compare it with Smoking normal cigarettes its considered better in term of damage to the human body and the non addictive feature of Marijuana, the days are not far when rolling a joint will be common and legal in india too.

The oldest known trade to us "PROSTITUTION" is also widely discussed and debated world over for making it legal as in few countries it is, well if u ask me what is my take on that i will say its a matter of personal choice and preferences and i will say at the last as again i mentioned before :

"Everybody Is Free To Wear SunScreen"

                                          by Baz Luhrman

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97,

Wear sunscreen. If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.The long term
benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis or
reliable then my own meandering experience. I will dispense this

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, nevermind, you won't understand the power and
beauty of your youth until they've faded, but trust me in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of
yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.You are not as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future, or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra
equation by chewing bubblegum.

The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind: the kind that blindsides you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.


Don't be reckless with other people's hearts; don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy.  Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.  The race is
long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive; forget the insults. (if you succeed in doing this, tell me how).

Keep your old love letters; throw away your old bank statements.


Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life.  The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives; some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don't.

Get plenty of Calcium.  Be kind to your knees -- you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't.  Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't.  Maybe you'll
divorce at 40; maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.

Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either.  Your choices are half
chance, so are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body: use it every way you can.  Don't be afraid of it or what other people think of it; it's the
greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance...even if you have no where to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions (even if you don't follow them).

Do not read beauty magazines; they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents; you never know when they'll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings: they're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in
the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but what a precious few should hold on.  Work hard to bridge the gaps and geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard.
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths: prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old; and when you
do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble, and children
respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you.  Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse,
but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair or by the time you are 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it.  Advice is a form of nostalgia;
dispensing it is a way of wishing the past from the disposal--wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts, and
recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me, I'm the sunscreen.

Looking At My Own Odometer

I Have Always Believed That When We Drive We Should Always Look At Our Own Odometers.

Whats the point of getting into a Rat Race in which we know we will be guided and driving according to other persons Style and Strength.

Wherein there are  1000% chances that we are capable of something more but just because we end up driving according to other person we loose our own strengths which leads to a very high chances of getting behind and maybe loosing control.

Ultimately its not us driving anymore, its the other person who is guiding without any real guidance.

The Life is all about walking at our Pace and Doing the things which we are capable of not what others..!!

We should definitely look up but looking up doesn't meant looking left or right means looking at things which defines the whole world.

The Greatest of men and people who had been the Most Successful in this human form had been doing it from Generations , Why Cant We ??

When we take Full Responsibility and  Charge of our life we deliver and Perform the Best..!!

Maybe it can be considered not the best as per others criterion , but being the best at first is Sheer luck and destiny and life is all about constantly trying and thriving.

So Stay Hungry , Stay Foolish and Never Give Up....!!
