Quotation Freak - II

A continuation of my previous post Quotation freak,

"Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to be positive that counts" (If that somebody wudn't have said this line, I probably wud have ;)

A wise man once said “Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain.” Beautifully expressed thought on learning to live and enjoy life.

A stitch in time saves nine (As a kid, I always used to wonder what this ever meant, but now I realize that it is one of the most applicable lines ever said to mend anything, even relationships)

In deals and in life, you often benefit much more from not getting your way (This thought from a Private Equity Blog completes my previous post Think long-term and it amazes me how the author said so much in such simple words)

"Don't take life too seriously, nobody gets out of it alive anyways" (This has different angles to it and to me it means to live it your way)

Dar ke aage jeet hai (Simply superb theme from the Mountain Dew's campaign)

This too shall pass (Jewish wisdom in one line)

More to come...

Delhi and I

The city catches your fascination with its old qilas, impresses you with its architecture, pleases you with its gardens and makes you comfortable with its wide roads. It has got the best of foods in its majestic hotels and even better food on its streets, the best branded clothes in its sprawling malls and an amazing collection outside them - only you got to find out. With regular artistic performances, never ending tourist places, innumerable pubs and dhabas, the city has got something to everybody's taste. It has got men who are smarter and women who are more fashionable than you can find in the rest of India. With its huge variety and a political air, it fully deserves its title as the ‘Capital City’. My stay in Delhi has been eventful and even after 3 years of staying there, visiting quite a few places and participating in its diversity, I still feel like a stranger and the city seems to be beyond my grasp!

P.S: And don't I miss the unbeatable passion and spirit of Mumbai!!
