My grandpa died before 4 years at the age of 97+. He lost memory during his last few days. But whenever he was able to recollect his thoughts & was able to understand what’s going on, he used to talk about his involvement in Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi movement during India’s freedom struggle. Khadi means hand woven cotton fabric.
He used to preach few things till the day he was alive;

1. Saying/wishing/greeting RAM RAM is not a religious thing, even though LORD RAM is the highest celebrated deity in Hindu religion. It’s about seeing divine in other human life & exchanging equal amounts of respect for that reason.

2. The biggest sinners in this world go to church/temple/mosque very often. Because they have to keep reminding god to wash their sins.

3. 10% of your wealth/income must go towards DANA (in Sanskrit it means DONATION), donation towards helping underprivileged & upliftment of society.

Not a secret, i own a small health supplement business since September-2017. And now that business enjoys a loyal customer base because of good quality products & quick customer query resolution. With those fitness enthusiasts in mind, i started an athleisure clothing brand in August-2019.

Like every other human, i am not perfect & my business is also not perfect all the time. Especially the atheleisure clothing brand i am talking about, not talking about profit or loss. My operation is small and we never made a loss. I am talking about clothes not being perfect sometimes. While manufacturing/stitching/printing, in few cases there’s a misplaced logo or a packaging label mishap, a stitching at wrong part of the clothing material or short hoodie strings, so we reject few clothes while passing it through quality testing. But even those quality reject clothes are completely usable, sometimes even i use them as my layer-1 clothes during winter. Like previous year, this year too we will go to a nearby orphanage & a refugee shelter to donate some winter clothes/blanket/woolen socks. There’s an amazing feeling of fulfillment while giving it back. I am forever grateful to almighty for giving me little more than i can consume.

(In case anyone wants to join, i have updated the address in our CMU university group. Please don’t try to overcrowd the place, 12-13 people are enough. It bums my mood to see people roaming around without mask, so please wear a mask while coming.)

Let me tell you something funny today.
Now a days we all hear once in a while someone random comes online in YouTube or any other social media & says, “You don’t need a school/college/university degree to be successful in life”.
Even Elon Musk once said “You can learn almost anything from internet for free”.
My question is; “As a human & society as whole, do we value free things?”.
I totally agree you can learn any skill for free if you have a strong willpower.
But that doesn’t take away the fact that a good school/college/university education is important.
Rich people don’t want competition. It’s beneficial for them if a major chunk of population stays under qualified, cheap labour you know.

Let me bust all these crap today.
Roughly 7.9 billion human population in our world & 92% adults don’t have a college/university degree.
And the rest 8% people who have a college/university degree own 74% of entire world’s wealth.
So don’t take advice from people who haven’t walked that path.
In most cases what happens; even getting into a good university or any ivy league school is a big deal here, that says your mind is ready for the big game.

Education is necessary.
Qualification is important.
Skills you learned will take you places.

A high school teacher once said;
“Being close & open to your opposite sex is important, you become more transparent, there’s no insecurities which makes you more confident. Later that also helps you build better relationship/friendships”.
I took those words bit too seriously i guess.
Even though my name is bit spoiled with university girls, I haven’t dated many in my almost close to 30 life. Actually i never missed dating someone. Being an extrovert & a LEO, I always had/have options to choose with whom i want to hangout/party/travel/workout/get cozy/watch Netflix/movie night/go hiking or shopping.

Now back to the story/confession/realisation, here it goes:
Way back when I was getting over a breakup, I used to spend most of my night filled with anger & a boyish temper. I didn’t realize it back then, I had so much to achieve in my life & such negative feelings weren’t helping. I wondered why she was able to get over faster than I was. Later I realised, it’s because I was spending so much time hating that situation rather than getting over it.

Anyone from my university friends scratching their head which breakup i am talking about; it’s my bestfriend DEMI. We are bestfriends since 7th century, but we have a mad crazy past. We dated for a very short period of time, I wasn’t ready for a COMMITMENT & i literally thought we were just fooling around. Fault was mine. I said YES to 4 girls for prom night & 2 out of those 4 were our seniors. I was expecting DEMI will be cool with it. To fight back & make me jealous, DEMI went on a date with one of my friends named Ivan. Being a loyal bro, Ivan asked my permission whether he is allowed to take DEMI out for a full monty brunch. DEMI didn’t like her date. She wanted to patch what fell apart in between us, but i was more focused with my studies & part-time job. I didn’t care much because i am the kinda guy who’s happy when my bank account grows, my life is more about my growth rather than allowing someone to mess with my piece of peace. Let’s say, I am a happy man because i am married to my bank account.

It became a runner/chaser situation for a week. Sad to say, i was the runner. One saturday evening it was snowing really bad. It was a lightbulb moment for me, I invited DEMI to try my homemade sourdough pizza. It wasn’t tasty like store-bought pizza, but we both ate it with pin drop silence. That was my first try with sourdough fermentation. Next day DEMI came to my apartment early morning, we followed another recipe from some website & we baked that pizza perfectly. We both were upset about each other’s behaviour. An amazing conversation after a good pizza helped us heal. We both got the closure & clarity we needed.

Coming back to this current day called TODAY, the only person who still sits on my lap is DEMI. I can ask her for a head & back massage anytime i want. We go on long drives. It’s a weddings/royal dinner invitations/travelling to some islands during weekends, we are each other’s +1 partner. If weather is not ok, we make it better by cuddling/spooning each other. 3-4 times she suggested whether we can date again! And as usual, I am not ready for dating experiments. But we already have an amazing equation, i don’t want to destroy that by allowing some romantic melodrama. We have a verbal agreement, there’s a sweet punishment if we miss each other’s phonecall or facetime. Last time i missed DEMI’s call when i was attending a university seminar, i had to send a butt naked snapchat streak to all my 186 friends as punishment. Our communication is flawless. The truth is, it took us a long time to build the amazing equation we share & i am not strong enough to hurt her. If i know someone who is TRUTHFUL & CONSISTENT so far in my life, it’s DEMI. Now there’s nothing except RESPECT & ADMIRATION towards each other.

Takeaway:
Whatever struggle you are facing in your life,
make sure you are not poisoning yourself with anger when you could be giving yourself love.
When you are filled with anger or hate,
the only person that suffers is you because most of the people you hate don’t know it and the rest don’t care.
Fill yourself with SELF-LOVE & SUCCESS before you are in search of LOVE.

In our modern world most people stress about their job/career/professional life without even thinking “your skills are equally important as your qualifications & you don’t have to settle for a career”. Most people believe that the career they choose coming out of college will put them on a path they must follow for the remainder of their lives.

But the truth is that they could stray from that path whenever they want and finding new paths is actually becoming more common in our ever-evolving world. Having diverse jobs and experiences is better than limiting yourself to only one thing. Career changes are possible for anyone who is eager to learn and adapt. So don’t worry too much. You can always change the course of your professional life if you’re not happy with it.

The usual rate of success in any field of life is somewhere around 3% to 5%. What about rest 95-97% who are left out in the race? The answer lies in “LACK OF SKILL-SET CAUSING LACK OF SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

Developing the right set of skills is a major pillar of success. Confident people never neglect their skills & people with right skill-set are confident about what they do. So much of low self-confidence comes from not having the skills or training needed for great success. Those with confidence see clearly what they need to do to improve their chances of success. They are willing to commit the time and energy in improving their skills, advancing their training or getting more education in order to be more confident in their abilities. First master your SKILLS before marching on your journey to SUCCESS.

Smile & Laugh are two different things. In my case, I laugh a lot & I hardly smile. For an example; whenever I meet few girls from my uni, that ass makes me smile but that intelligence makes me laugh. (SUP ZK).😝

There must be a feminazi somewhere thinking “HOW THE FUCK THIS GUY CAN QUOTE GIRLS AS DUMB!!”. Please calm down. You can swap the genders & read it, I still mean the same. I am just saying “Lack of knowledge is dumb. And information is knowledge, not your university degree. According to my analogy, every lazy person is dumb due to their lack of interest in information & slow easy mindset towards life”.

I need to smile more. Maybe you need to laugh more. Smile & Laugh both. Life is fun, let it be.

I just don’t understand this new hate wave among few old high school/college/University mates. Money is money, there is no emotions behind it. Make it or stay shunned. Peace.

Fuck you if you have the audacity to judge me behind my back. I may have 100, I reveal 10. Because it’s my call what to show. If you have dealt with me during my high school/engineering/university days, please don’t hate me for my past behaviour. You know what I was going through.

I never have/had a backup plan in my life. Never took impulsive decisions. Still I am asking for a FORGIVENESS for my part of mess & a tiny invitation for a coffee with full monty, let’s mend the shits went wrong. I think twice before my actions, that’s why I have no reasons to rethink after my actions. Doesn’t matter you treated me good or bad, I am welcoming you open arms with an offer of friendship. We can’t change the past. Why don’t you ring my number instead of calling everyone & saying you are SORRY for what you did with me! I am still using the same number since 2009. My phone will be general after 5pm weekdays. Don’t be afraid. Let’s catch up.

(Targeted towards my mate C*****. Stop stalking & start talking please.)

We are living in a world where 14 year olds are advertising being TAKEN & 30 year olds are regretting about “why they didn’t go for a good university program and how to woo that Asian/American working in any fortune 500 MNC who earns 150grands package!!”.

First invest in yourself to become the best possible you can ever be. Rest assured, someday you will end up in a stable secure togetherness.
