I was thinking of a suitable title for my blog. Something that would reflect my personal life. Then a thought flashed into my mind. "TWIST" of LOVE AAJ KAL. But then "the twist in my life" is greater than that. And the biggest twist in my life has been from BHEL PURI to JHAAL MURIE. And so here I go........ presenting myself to you.....n a Sweet-teekha-sour-spicy way....my cone of Jhaalmurie...
He was my classmate and best friend in my engineering college. At first glance he looks like a person who is fun loving and can never be serious in his life. He used to interact with all and have all the habits synonymous to non-studious students. He was a regular smoker, wanderer and avid moviegoer. He never missed any Friday show (he was more regular in movies during exam times). No one ever sees him studying seriously but he was the lone 10-grader of my college.
There were other classmates who were very serious about studies. Among them, one particular person always tried to compete in grades with my friend. That person never watched a movie in four years of engineering course and was always found engrossed in books. He used to read all the relevant books and other sources for a simple topic. He was always found in library during breaks whereas my friend used to have masti during that time. That person's sole aim was to beat my friend but was unable to do so.
People used to wonder why my friend always topped the chart inspite of extra involvement in hobbies and other extra-curricular activities. I know the reason and the only reason was his strategy and dedication. He has a unique way of studying. He used to read, understand and then write everything. He used to follow a fix routine and never broke it for anyone or even me, inspite of being his close friend. He never studied for 12-15 hours in a day but used to dedicatedly spare 1 hour and that was the reason for his victory.
In a nutshell, I will say that he didn't focus on what he didn't have like extra books, Internet or computer. He focused on what he did have. Using what little he had, he used to beat all his fellow competitors.
Be like HIM. Don't focus on what you don't have or what others have that's bigger, stronger and supposedly better than yours.
Focus on the talents and resources that you do have.
