60th Republic Day

Republic day, do we really give importance to this day? I don’t know for others but for me it is just like a day of weekend when i do not have to go office,watch movies on my laptop up till 3 0r 4 am in the morning  and sleep up to 12 noon.When I waked up today at 11 am suddenly some of my conversation with two guys from Holland and Kenya start playing in my ears. During my recent business trip to Holland/Netherlands i met two persons, one was my Dutch colleague in office and other one from Kenya who was sitting next to me in flight from Istanbul to Amsterdam.

I was talking to Kenyan men and during our interaction he came to know that I am an Indian. As soon as he came to know that I am an Indian he said:-

“Hey man, I am very delighted to meet you.You guys…I mean, Indians are really very smart and Intelligent in business.They are every where in the world and making good money and business.In Kenya, I have seen many Indians who have very big factories and they are giving employment to Kenyans there.”

“By the way what is the purpose of your visit to Amsterdam?” I said, “I am on a business trip from my Organization”. He said “Aha, as I said before you guys are really great in Business and work”

After that we had a long conversation about India and Kenya, life styles in both countries etc.

Next day I joined my office in Amsterdam where my business meeting was scheduled to take place.During roaming around the office in lunch and tea breaks I saw many Indians there in that office.KPN is the largest telecom and IPTV service provider in Netherlands and I was astonished to see that may Indians are working with such a big group of Netherlands.

On second day of my business meeting i was walking with my Dutch colleague and I said to him “I have seen many Indian faces here in this office” and on this statement of mine he said “Indians are very smart and Intelligent, they all got such a great memory power that they remember almost every thing.It seems that in few years Indians are going to take over everywhere.They are so humble in nature and professional in work that they can pursue any one”. I gave him a cynical smile as I was wondering whether he is saying all these things sarcastically or he is really impressed with Indians but I was very happy to hear all these things from him ignoring the fact in which way he said these things to me.

Every quiescent of my body was feeling proud to be Indian at that time and same feeling was there when I interacted with a Kenyan Guy in flight.

What I believe is that we have the capability to rule the world and one day we gonna do this.

India is integrated  from 28 states, 1618 languages, 6400 castes, 6 ethnic groups, 29 festivals.

PROUD TO BE INDIAN. Happy Republic Day.

Welcome 2010

Hey Fellas!!!


As we have entered in New Year, Let’s move like birds leaving behind what we don’t need to carry with us like Grudges, sadness, pain, fear, regrets and bad memories of last year (Just Shift+Delete them from brain).


Let’s keep all good memories of last year.

Let’s keep smile on our faces so that world can smile with us.

Let’s start accepting things with open hands.

Let’s start accepting people around us as they are.

Let’s start forgive quickly.

Let’s start be more sincere but not serious all the time (Thanks to Chetan Bhagat for this line J).

Let’s open the book in which its pages are blank and start putting words in it ourselves (The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day).


God bless you and keep you safe not only today but throughout life that is coming in your way. May year to follow be among the best you have ever spend.


Life is beautiful, let’s start enjoying it more. aal izz well J


Welcome to 2010 !!!
