India today conclave 2014



“In 1995 I had $7 bucks in my pocket and knew two things: I am broke as hell and one day I won’t be.”

                                                                             Dwayane ‘The Rock’ Johnson

“One day I won’t be”  He said it all, in this killing phrase.

Johnson’s thoughts added robustness to his cache of the  positive energy  which embarked upon his character and thereby his destiny and unfailingly made him touch the pinnacle of success. He redefined his life’s equation to be an all time WINNER.

The element of spunk running down your nerves and the chunk of tenacity hitting the center spot of your mind is all about my definition of WINNING.

It’s simply a mind game. Focus befogged, and the goal is missed.


लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती.

नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है,
चढ़ती दीवारों पर, सौ बार फिसलती है|
मन का विश्वास रगों में साहस भरता है,
चढ़कर गिरना, गिरकर चढ़ना अखरता है|
आख़िर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती|

Translation :

The boat that qualms the waves
never gets across.
The mind that dreads and dares
has never been at loss.
The tiny ant, when it carries the grain
lays it up into the heights of the wall.
Falls slipping a hundred times,
Just as it tries again,
the faith in the mind
stirs courage in the nerves.
It soars and slips, then slips and soars again
Until its efforts have not been in vain…

The inspirational lines from a poem  by Late Shri Harivansh Rai Bachchan enkindles vigor to accept the short term  failures with a smiling face as they are nothing, but the challenging milestones.The moment  your mind and heart  sets in consonance with the spirit to try again, after a fall , you WIN ..

It’s not about the number of awards being showcased on your name, it’s not about the inflow of fame and money, and it’s not about being in the first position every time. Winning is all about, how easily you carve your way through failures, how swiftly, but with all the dynamism you face the world each time you are being knocked down, how indubitably you shed your fears and inhibitions, and verge upon a new YOU.

Any exacerbating or ill-fated situation swishes you completely, but if your core strength is intact, it helps to overcome this fiasco. You find yourself transformed having an entirely new perspective towards life, adding more to your vertical and horizontal bandwidth.

“Never say no to new learnings and opportunities.” 

“Rediscover the awe-inducing power of looking at things with the spirit of a child.”

“Ramp up your expertise and resiliency each time, get back up and keep fighting.”

Every time you accept a challenge and fulfill it ;every time you hook up again to your dreams; every time you smile after being bumped into an unpleasant situation; the WINNER which is already inside YOU gets an extra barrel of oxygen  impregnating a headstrong spirit to begin the game of life all over again.

Seep into one’s heart, and touch the soul,

Keep forging ahead towards your goal.

Spare your comfort for others happiness,

Dare to dream ,and struggle seamless.

Lights, camera, action – BEGIN,

Say, I can do-  with all the zing.

It is possible – just imagine,

Push hard , hope high,

and let your heart sing.

Nobody is a loser, because

WINNING is your own measure.

 Write your own innings…

Syncopate it ,and  that’s  WINNING..
