Destiny’s Gift

Last night, prompted by this extraordinary story of a 40 year friendship (Link) I went to bed thinking of the most notable friendships of my life….The beginnings, the highlights and the endings and the different flavours. In this post, I share the story of an extraordinary friendship that grew most unexpectedly out of networking.

Late 2013-Early 2014,I wished to connect with a “Person”. I’ve always liked his approach to work. And I believed that I could add value to his work in a way that no one else could. However, the most obvious person I could enlist to make this connection was far from tech savvy.  I wished to be taken seriously for my abilities, not accommodated as a favour. So I spent a couple of months feeling stymied and was considering just trying my luck and cold calling. That’s when IndiBlogger announced the BigRock #Word-Up on the 20th of September,2014.One of the keynote speakers on e-governance was Vinit Goenka. He was the National Co-Convenor of the BJP-IT Cell then. The IT bit sounded good , though I had no idea where he stood in the party’s scheme of things or with the “Person” I wished to connect with . In anycase, I was game to try. At least I could draw closer and make my way towards what I really wanted, never mind the steps in between. So, I made contact ,drawing on the name of a family friend I judged as unlikely to draw extremely negative responses from any quarter. The name of our mutual acquaintance worked well enough to get me a visiting card and a first appointment. Below is a photo of me from a little while before we met. Yeah ! Life is strange we met in a pub……………a man who doesn’t drink at all and hates the very smell of liquor and a woman who hates the taste of most liquor and disguises it with copious doses of additives to manage the required social drinking to network…………..

Quite Literally

Think Before Chasing Money.

Wealth is frequently equated with money.

Before blindly chasing money, see what you are foolishly casting aside without due consideration.

Maximize wealth not money.


Quote For The Day

Choose Veera Lakshmi

wealthymattersVeera Lakshmi or Dhairya Lakshmi is the Goddess of bravery and fearlessness. She is the bestower of valour in battles and courage and strength for overcoming difficulties in life. She blesses devotees with a mind to conquer everything. To worship her is to know no hesitation , have no doubts of success and so have the self-confidence to ensure success of one’s ventures.

Here’s a story to remember.

Once upon a time there was a king named Bhoj Raj. Under his rule, the people was very happy and they had all the things they needed.

King Bhoj Raj was a devotee of the Ashta Lakshmi.

One day while he was performing pooja of Sri Ashta Lakshmi, he found that all the faces of Sri Ashta Lakshmi seemed to be a little  sad. He asked the deities why they were all sad. They said that the time had come for all the Ashta Lakshmis to leave his kingdom. They also added that as the king is a beloved son of them, they wished to give him a boon before leaving.
