How to Approach Life & Win it!

Its easier said than done. I am trying, maybe because I want to create the change from within myself to those around me. When you say you want to go up, you need to say that I have to increase my worth so much that there is no other way than UP.

But most of the time this isn't what we see. What we see is that others are growing, and this somewhat pushes us down. The fact of the matter is we look up to someone from the Top to pull us up. This type of attitude is always wrong. When you want to go UP, you have to raise UP, otherwise there is nobody who is going to give you the respect you deserve.

Yes, you deserve respect, not PITY. You will be pulled up only if you get PITY. If you raise up, everyone says that you deserve this and that provides respect.

So how to raise up, can the government policy get me up. NO, NEVER. A Government is there to manage things. For them to easily manage anything, they need to have a steady state. That is stable income from direct & in-direct taxes. Stable economy, which grows at a steady rate, like inflation, gdp everything needs to be predictable to be easily manageable. 

Because of this, they tend to build policies which doesn't disrupt anything majorly. Like the population of poor is not allowed to grow or diminish - which will damage the vote bank politics. Similarly, the growth of middle class is also never let go to get out of hand, thus managing a fragile balance of eco-system where there is a steady supply of labour, employees, as well as those who survive from them. 

Always there are sharks, but no small player is easily allowed to become a Shark. The ecosystem disruption cannot be tolerated. For example, if everyone can survive owning a Business, won't everyone get out of balance and work for themselves. This isn't inherently bad, because we live in and are in need such an ecosystem to cherish mutually. 

Now if this is pre-programmed, how can I become the one I want to be rather than languishing where I belong. Now, that is the question to ask!

If you want to lift yourself, you need to give yourselves the push to cross all these hurdles, ie., the government, your fellow status-quo-guys, the norm guys (something which is acceptable in the society - Normal). And basically keep these things as far away as possible and work single-mindedly to achieve your goal.

Only if you want to make the revolutionary change in your life, will you be able to raise above all odds and crack it. I have found it time and again that if you don't raise up to those challenges to create that revolutionary change, you will never raise UP, never really.

The normal definition to be successful is to feel secure, that if you die at this very moment your loved ones are taken care for - even as you are not here.

For me, to be successful is to create atleast one human being who was working with you or along you to that normal definition of success. If not, my friend, if not, then you have failed this miserable life.

Some days are pretty nostalgic

For most of our college mates, their journey through the special college life began today, 10th of July 1996.

For me, Yogi and few others the batch started on Aug 16 1996, I still soak with memories of all the happiness I felt on that very first day. It was a great feeling to see how an Engineering College will look like, which was not much different from the school we were used to.

The fact remains I didn't understand which class we were attending, when I entered the class and started listening. I asked the fellow nearby(who accompanied me in my bench) for which class this is. He told he didn't know. I thought it was Chemistry and started taking notes. I was asking most curious questions at the same person throughout the period, but he said didn't know or sometimes didn't answer. At times I thought this fellow is being a little cruel and doesn't like me taking place beside him.

At the end of the class (it was the fourth hour), we were breaking for lunch, I asked fo…

Everybody has their own journey through life - III

The Lakshmi English School taught me the fundamentals, but due to an unavoidable circumstance I was forced to leave the school over there and join another. If the previous school gave me the basics, the next taught me to use them well. Application is one of the most core part of the studies that you should never forget to learn. The school which adopted me for that is named Vallal Sabapathy School (so was it called then). Here I learnt how to apply myself into studies itself, because there was no more spoon feeding. I had to live in a different environment. Funny though still I can feel that environment which threw me out of no where. There I was in Lakshmi school where it was strict, disciplined and more and more academic oriented. Here I got a lot of freedom. Freedom of playfulness, naughtiness, craziness, funkiness, etc.

Freedom from all the academic clutches, our batch moved towards excellent schooling. Enjoyed many aspects of life. Like playing around in school hours, engaging in…

Its Adorable when you see your Little one on stage!

Definitely, adorable. Even when you can't hear a single word she spoke, because the amplifier got haywire. The thing in enjoying this moment is just that, enjoying that moment. Finally, I got to enjoy that moment fully, as I had gotten rid of the cameras I used to carry for the first time.

Earlier I simply had to carry a Video Cam, Digi Cam, spare batteries for both and always on the lookout for what will go wrong, who will block my view, will the tape be nice, etc., Sure it is nice to have a copy of the video for a lot of remembrance. But, still this should not be at the cost of enjoying the live moment of what was happening. This was not thrust upon me by anybody, but myself. I had an obligation to show our very close relatives how she did on stage, time and again. But, today my wife gave me a reprieve. She said, "we will buy the video which the school was shooting" (earlier it certainly was not the case).

This was certainly a relief for me. It also was a relief for mo…
