चिड़या नाल मैं बाज़ ल्डावां, तभी गुरु गोबिंद सिंह नाम कहवा!

(I will make the sparrows capable of fighting the hawks, for it is only then that I will be able to uphold my name.) ~ Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Khalsa, created on the 30th march 1699, by Guru Gobind Ji was purely based on the belief of being fearless in spirit.

Fearless, during that time was in context of fighting for the good of country and people without looking at your weakness and resources. Oftenly we say people were different at that time and could do such great things but now it is not possible. It was never limited to that time zone but saying so is merely an excuse.

On a lighter side, today we can find a lot of “Fearlessness” on roads leading to ever increasing Road-Rage incidents.

 Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, Abraham Lincoln, Dhirubhai Ambani, Charlie Chaplin, Steve Jobs, J.K. Rowling, Oprah Winfrey and most recent Shri Narendra Modi who became Prime Minister of India are all belongs to unknown and poor strata of population.

List of such will be very long if we start digging out the data.

Google shows About 15,50,00,000 results in one of such query.

What made them to achieve so higher? Did destiny play the role?

I say No!

Quote of the day - Ravinder Goyal-172
Size doesn’t matter if you are exceptionally determined to win ~ quote by Ravinder Goyal

We can find many names now and then in news papers where autorickshaw driver’s daughter tops CA exams or a rickshawpuller’s son cracks IIT-JEE, or  a peon’s daughtercrack the tough civil services exam. There are in fact enormous such success stories but are left unveiled due to low TRP for media.

If you search google, you may find such stories in every aspect of life. People have done wonders across platforms. Online stores are just one another example. Success striving people could see the opportunities and created huge wealth out of something invisible at their beginning.

Sometime you need to weave your Dreams using invisible but scantily available threads.

The success lies behind may have undisclosed agendas or aspirations but for sure they all have gone through rigours hard-work and definitive agenda of excelling in life, which initially was to live better and fight the odds in their early childhood. During the course, achievements may have enthused them to reach different peaks.

We generally say that there is no written formula to be successful. But isn’t it.

To be successful, you should not go after the life but should follow the dream so badly that you stop seeing anything else.

Would love to end this with a beautiful song written by Javed Akhtar Saheb:

दिल ना उम्मीद तो नहीं, नाकाम ही तो है

लंबी है ग़म की शाम, मगर शाम ही तो है


ये सफ़र बहोत है कठीन मगर

ना उदास हो मेरे हमसफ़र


ये सितम की रात है ढलने को

है अन्धेरा ग़म का पिघलने को

ज़रा देर इस में लगे अगर

ना उदास हो मेरे हमसफ़र


नहीं रहनेवाली ये मुश्किलें

के हैं अगले मोड़ पे मंझीले

मेरी बात का तू यकीन कर

ना उदास हो मेरे हमसफ़र


कभी ढूंढ लेगा ये कारवां

वो नई जमीन, नया आसमान

जिसे ढूँढती है तेरी नजर

ना उदास हो मेरे हमसफ़र
