It's Caterpiller That Becomes Butterfly

Academically, how rich you are? Dropped out or not enough to be excited? If yes, so what! Still you have the potential to be something significant ... something influential like:

Valentina Terescova: Cosmonaut, first woman in space to orbit the earth.

Mary Lyon: Women's education pioneer, founder of Mount Holyoke College (America's first women's college)

Agatha Christie: Best-selling female author of all time; the most translated individual author in the history.

Helen Gurley Brown: Editor-in-chief of the Cosmopolitan magazine, the highest paid copywriter in the 60s.

Florence Nightingale: Modern nursing pioneer, nicknamed as "The Lady with the Lamp."

Marilyn Monroe: Model turned actress-singer, the only woman to have been listed in Forbes’s richest dead celebrity list.

Aretha Franklin: 20 times Grammy winning singer-pianist, the first woman artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Mildred Zaharias: Women's sports pioneer, won six gold medals and broke four world records at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics.

So when people look at your academic qualification and say, "Isn't your education a drawback for your career?" let them know, success isn't limited without formal education; success is limited without vision. What's your vision?

Today Is The Youngest You Ever Could Be

I can't wait all my life
On a street of broken dreams.
~ It Could Have Been You, Journey

We program our mind that life would be better when we'll complete our higher education from a reputed university, have a fat job, and then another. When we reach that reality, we tell ourselves that our life will be complete when we’ll get a spouse, a nicer car, or able to go on a nice vacation.

But the truth is that future is always beginning now. It’s the NOW that turns into WON. If not now, when? Life always grows through the challenges. And it's best to admit this to you and decide to be happy anyway.

Happiness isn’t any reward we get by the standard of our way of living. Happiness is the way of living life. So, treasure every moment that you have. Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized.

So stop telling yourself: “Let’s wait till I finish school … till I lose ten pounds … till my teeth get whiter …. till I get married … till I have kids … till my kids leave the house … till I retire … till IPL ends … till I get a new car or home … till my car or home is paid off … till Monday … till Tuesday … till Wednesday.”

Isn’t it so painful that we are always getting ready to live but never living? Honey, future isn’t a place to place your better days. Because piling up too many tomorrows gives us nothing but a bunch of empty yesterdays.

Jab Bhi Tu Milta Hai
Tujhme Naya Sa Kuch Milta Hai Mujhe
Aei Dost Tu Mujhe Meri Tarah Hi Dikhta Hai
Jab Bhi Tu Milta Hai
Har Subah Ke Sath Mere Wo Muskurata Hua Chehra
Yeh Teri Duaka Asar Rang Lata Hai
Jab Bhi Tu Milta Hai
~ Kiran K Singh
Friends, friendship or friendship day—what’s more important?

1. Friends. It means you are more concern about the counter-operation than co-operation. Gita says, love but don’t get addicted either to love or the lover. Here, you’re addicted.

2. Friendship. Here, you enjoy the process because you’re not driven by the outcomes. You value it not because your friend has a Shahrukh-kinda smile, Ritwik-kinda dancing skill or Salman-kinda waxed figure or Abishekh-kinda surname or Ambani-kinda bank balance. Here, you value your friends because you value friendship. It’s your instinct that drives you, not the reasons. You celebrate it because you value the celebration.

3. Friendship day. Why do you need reasons to celebrate? Yes, why limit your celebration only for 24 hours, whereas you can celebrate it anytime you want.

Every second is a moment. And every moment can be celebrated. What’s wrong, if you don’t limit the celebration within a day!

God Didn't Create Fear ...

On my last trip to Kolkata, I met a linguistic historian. As usual like all other historians, he was busy telling what he knew and surprisingly, he succeeded. Because he was telling about folk music and I never minded to be a listener here. Then, he shared this 700 year old folk song and swept me over in a minute. Though, he couldn’t remember the tune but I didn’t forget to remember the opportunity to record the conversation. Here’re the awesome lines:

Synopsis: Maa Yashoda was going to the river and the little Krishna was following. Yashoda said: “No, don’t come! There is haung (a term to frighten children).” Krishna replied: “Mother, I have created all. Tell me, who has created this haung? I’d go with you, show me the haung.”

The Destiny's Child


Beyonce Knowledge competed as part of girls group, Girls Aloud, on Star Search but lost to her cousin Kelly Rowland.


Forget about her influence on being the sailor of the best-selling girls group of all time, or winning 5 Grammy in a single night for her debut solo-album, Beyonce is the first and only female artist to have a number-one album and a number one single in the US and UK simultaneously.

Isn’t Tough?

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven.
~ Tears In Heaven, Eric Clapton

When Bhishma was on the verge of dying, lying on the shafts of Arjuna's arrows, looking to his great great grandfather, Arjun couldn’t stop crying,. Then lord Krishna told him: “Hey nath, come on, you are a jyani. Jyani doesn’t cry because a jyani knows the truth of death and life. A jyani knows that death is inevitable to everyone. Stop crying. Accept the truth”

Now the question is, doesn’t knowing the truth and then swallowing the truth take time?

Isn’t tough when someone who always has the unconditional cares n prayers for you, left you without giving you an opportunity to say thank you?

Isn’t tough when you find that you have lost a part of your childhood memory?

Isn’t tough when someone’s absent erase a part of your existence?

Isn’t tough when one of sweetest reasons to smile stop kissing you smile?

Isn’t tough when you lose a place where you can crawl back to hide, anytime you want?

Isn’t tough?

I miss you dida, I couldn’t fulfill your last wish you have asked to me. I’m sorry!
