Wishing My Dear Reading Corner Family Friends the most wonderful next 24 hours
Any fool can know. The point is to understand. Albert Einstein
People laugh at me because I’m different. I laugh because they’re all the same.
Never trust your fears. They don’t know your strength. Start your day with faith and a prayer and god will give you the strength to do what is necessary.
Without curiosity, no innovation is possible. Curiosity creates questions. Questions lead to answers. And answers lead to the development.
A good life starts only when you stop waiting for a better one.
Nothing in this world is good or bad. Our thinking makes it so. A knife is good when a surgeon uses it to save a life and bad when a terrorist uses it to kill.
Many people don’t succeed because they spend their major energy in minor things.

WHAT DO YOU DO
During an investors’ conference in Mumbai, I once asked a guy, “So, what do you do?”
He was so stunned that for a few seconds he was speechless. Then, he turned to others and said, “You know, once, everyone knew me. Now I am asked what I do!”
Realizing that I had inadvertently punctured his ego, when I discreetly enquired, I found out that he was a founder of one of India’s earliest venture capital funds.
Naturally, he was once a big-shot, used to people lining up before him for jobs, funding, and press interviews.
But that was history. He was no longer with that fund, which had itself lost its position — newer investors were now hogging the limelight.
The world had changed but he was still caught in a time-warp.
The cycle of life does not stop — what is up, will someday be down. Life is a great leveller.
Better to stay humble and start every day as a beginner. That way, if someone asks our name, at the very least, we will have an answer.
