Life is not about the college you study from, the grades you passed with, the money you earn or the clothes you wear. Life isn't about having loads of friends or staying alone, it isn't bout how common or weird you are !!
Life is about who you love and who you hurt, it's about how you feel about yourself, it's about trust happiness and compassion, it's about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. It is about valuing a relationship, personal and professional
Life is about avoiding jealousy,overcoming ignorance and building confidence. It is about what you say, what you mean and what you do. It is about seeing people for who they are and not what they have or what they want to be. It is about choosing to use your life touch someone else's in a way that could have never been achieved otherwise.
Life is all about making choices...!!!

On 23rd of December 2009, 2 days before the bollywood's biggest hit "3 Idiots" was released, my bhabi gave birth to a baby boy. Back then, for couple of weeks he was called the "4th Idiot " but later given the name "Shlok", obviously by me. As with any other kid these days, the guy is quite smart considering his age and unlike me & my brother, he is quite photogenic. He somehow has the ability to locate camera from the corner of his eyes and pose for a picture. This one is just one of the many..!!
The guy passes smile to girls of my age and gets all the attention..somehow has love for Mobile phone & laptops from day 1...doesn't sleep before 12 Midnight..has enormous amount of love for ice-cream, cold coffee and mango...give him the phone and he will talk for long hours (in his own language)... Don't know if god is working over time to design these kids :P
I don't know how, but the dude recognized me even when I met him for the first time and he has been after my specs since then, oh yeah....just mine !! He deliberately wakes me up and signals towards my specs lying on the table or else where. He comes and sit in my lap, just when i am about to have lunch / dinner and obviously share some of it :-). He makes me eat his share of biscuits & chocolates and at times rice too.. pinch by pinch for half an hour or so. ...Plays with me just when I sit to work and list of our bonding goes on & on....
Sometimes its fascinating to see him being able to differentiate between a T.V Remote, a Mobile phone and a toy phone..from where can he know which charger fits into which mobile...how can he imitate everyone's actions so easily....how can he apply so much of brain in most of the things he do !! I am sure its just the start of thousands of unbelievable things which i am gonna witness about him.....these 3rd generation kids...beyond my scope to understand...!!
P.S - Shlok, if &when you happen to read this blog..you would know how naughty you were & how much happiness you bring to me and the entire family....:-)

When Sachin Tendulkar traveled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam.
When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to "open" the Nehruvian economy.
It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar.
We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had a Sachin Tendulkar and we never will.

Even if you are an Osama-bin-laden, its important that you are surrounded by terrorists and not by saints.
--Never compete with someone in his/her strength, use your strengths to excel in life coz you can't beat someone's good luck with your bad luck, you can't manipulate system better than someone who has done it from past 20 years. If hardwork has worked for me, i would be stupid to try my luck without working harder
--The world around us is not as ugly as it looks like, we just need to look at the brighter side of it and learn from it. It is a saying that a drunk guy is always honest, so either you can learn to be a drunkard or you can learn to be an honest person. It is not at all necessary to be drunk in order to be honest. Choice is yours !!!
--There are no substitutes for parents & no fhortcuts for success. No one except your parents cares about your happiness, everyone else has a selfish reason attached, for you being happy. About success, Sachin Tendulkar still has to go out in the sun to score runs even though he is successful at it, how can we call ourselves successful by scoring more runs than him on a play station against highest difficulty level ?? Either we don't know the definition of success or we are too lazy to put efforts !!
--It not necessary to fail in order to succeed coz out of the 1000 individuals who fail, only one become Bill Gates or Steve Jobs or J.K Rowling. Avoid getting failed, there are better ways to learn as well. Prevention is better than cure...remember ???
--There are always three choices for everything and not two !!! We subconsciously ignore the third one.....should i read this...should i not read this.... & the third one..should i know why it is written !! First two are too easy to decide...third one takes a bit of thinking !!
--Try to make progress in life always but never forget what you have achieved and what you have !! One makes your future better and one makes your present beautiful ...both are equally important
-- Lastly, sharing and saying ideal things are much easier than doing ...but then "doing" is the only way to make it real ....thinking / hoping / wishing wont result in anything !!!
P.S : Last couple of lines are just meant for me... :) ....and even if you can relate it to yourself... don't think that you want to be me...but think how can you be yourself !!!
P.P.S : Commenting on my blog is not at all compulsory from now on as if it was.. :P ...its an option...coz i anyway right about myself and for myself :)
Thanks to all those who are reading this & wished me on my birthday... :)
