Glad to know that somebody wants to know about me...

Well, most of my life till now has turned out better than I wanted, expected, needed.

I have been blessed with the best of families I could get. The most loving, caring father, mother, brother and sister I could have got. I really love them. Looking back into the past, I realize the singular role they have played to make me what I am today.

I couldnt have a better set of friends, from whom all I have learned more than I could have ever imagined.

I am most thankful to God for giving me such wonderful friends and family.

I believe living is equivalent to learning and exploring.

And there are innumerable things to learn and explore...

If you have not skiied on top of very high snowy mountains, cruised on large stretches of water, sat on a machan in a tree in a dense forest to watch the scary wildlife, trekked on the Himalayas, sky dived, visited numerous countries, talked to people with diverse backgrounds, cultures, regions, went underwater diving, went beyond the earth's atmosphere (Space), learnt about different religions, developed the ability to appreciate art, you have yet to live your life.

I believe the highest virtue a man can attain is: interest in making other peoples' lives better.
Formally: non-voilence, honesty, kindness, truthfulness, non-harming, helping, etc.

I believe happiness is your wish. No person, thing, money, situation can give you happpiness. You can be happy if you want irrespective of anything else.

And one must learn to find happiness in the present, instead of setting conditions on it and hoping to get it in the future when the conditions are met. "Oh, I would be a so happy man if only I could have that....if only that could have happenned...", these are all useless. Be happy what you have, what exists in the present. This is "as good as it gets!".

Rest Later.

I will write when I have more time.

Enjoy Life in your own way, while it lasts.

Where is the time to hate,
When there is so little time to love.
