I guess you know how much I love movies! While most people watch movies for Entertainment and others think that movies are waste of time, I watch movies to learn life lessons too. Infact I’ve learned many valuable lessons from different movies I watched. Wish I could share all those lessons with you (may be I will someday). But today let me share lessons from 3 South Indian movies I watched recently – Kick, Nayak and Mirchi. Keep reading, I am sure you’d love it.
Life teaches us lessons every moment, isn’t it? If we are willing, we can learn from anyone and anything – from nature, the books we read, movies we watch, people we encounter, experiences we face. Though I believe that everyone learns best from their own experiences, but if we take some time to share what we are learning, it might make someone else’s journey a bit easier. That’s what I do, that’s what my purpose is. And in this post I’ve compiled different lessons of life, business and social media I’ve learned in my journey. Instead of writing only long paragraphs on the lessons, I’m sharing these lessons as inspiring photo quotes. Keep it on your phone or computer, pin it, share it, send it to someone who is in need of that particular lesson right now.
How can I not write about this crazy man with white long beard, when the motto of my blog is ‘live your best life’? Who else can inspire us better than Rabindranath Tagore, to live our best lives? I listen to Rabindrasangeet sometimes, honestly not much. I read many of his writings, but honestly not all. I can’t claim myself a Rabindranath expert, but the little I got to know about this person in my life, the philosophy of life I got to read in his writings or listen in his songs, literally gave me the courage to follow my heart and live my best life. Forgive me for saying this, but right here in West Bengal, where he was born,most people are very passionate & proud about discussing his work, but very few actually follow his philosophies to improve their lives. My purpose of writing this post is to remind you about those philosophies, that can really transform your life.
Today’s post is very very special for me. You must have noticed that I always repeat the statement “Live your best life. Live your best life.” But what is ‘best life’? Well definition of best life is very different for different persons. But it can be generalized as ‘living upto your highest potentials, enjoying life at its best at every parameters, making a difference to the world’. So far, I’ve got the best definition as: “Living your best life means being a Rajarshi. Rajarshi = Raja (King) + Rishi (Saint). Your best life is when you will have wealth, name, fame – all external forms of abundance like a king, and also kindness, humility, giving heart, spirituality – all inner gifts of a saint.” And you know this definition changed my entire life. How? Keep reading. Read more
I was considered normal as long as I was walking the road of life according to what others decided for me. But from the day, I started following my own heart, people around me (yes my parents too) started considering me not-normal ( just because abnormal sounds too rude). How can a normal person (according to them), leave academics after passing out from two of the finest institutions of our country ( read ‘Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission’ & ‘Shibpur BE College’)? How can a normal Bengali boy decide to start own business instead of going for MNC / Govt. jobs? ( Don’t you know that God declared in an ancient pamphlet “Bongs can’t do business”?)
Thank God my friend Anand Brian sent me to this video! This young guy Varun Agarwal is a real inspiration. When most of the children in our country are being brainwashed by their parents and society to become an Engineer (remember the movie 3 Idiots?), no matter whether they have any interest or not, Varun’s story will be a ray of hope and source of strength for youngsters who want to follow their heart instead.
Today I’ll share a very fascinating story of another friend cum brother of mine – Anirban Saha. I met him on Twitter around 2009 I guess. We met face-to-face first time in a Kolkata Tweetup at 2009 year ending. And for last few years he has been one of the best friends I found online. Over the years, I observed him closely online. I am really astonished to see the way he has grown! From the day he started working in TCS, he became a mystery to me. How can one person do so many things? He is devoted about his job, he takes amazing photographs, his works are used by renounced people/ organizations/ events, he gets featured as a model in Sananda magazine, he blogs, he writes valuable Facebook notes, he always interacts on Social Media, he learns Rabindrasangeet, he attends networking events, he takes time to photograph his cute niece… lots more! Aren’t you wondering like me “How???”. That’s why I so wanted to know his story. Let’s discover Anirban together. Keep reading.
