It all started when I was a kid. I had this habit of reading books every day. I used to read as many books as possible whenever I got time. What started with reading story books has converted now to reading books on living meaningfully with understanding.
Back then, I usually read at high speed with a bit of greediness inside me. The greed was to finish as many books as possible, as if I will get some medal for reading so many books. I would start reading a new book immediately after finishing the current one.
It’s only now that I realize how wrong I was in doing so. It really doesn’t matter if you have read a thousand books or just one book.
What matters is how much you understand about yourself and how many actions you take in your life, in the right direction.
Reading and Thinking without any action means nothing.
Luckily for me, I started reflecting upon what I read as I grew up and this habit remained with me ever since then.
What I didn’t knew then, was how valuable is this habit of reading good books and how greatly it can help us in living a simple and beautiful life. Something which I came to realize when I was maybe 16-17 years old.
Since then, I have read tons of books and articles about improving oneself personally, professionally and spiritually. By the way, I am 28 years old now.
So within this gap, between my teenage years and today, I have read, contemplated, understood, practiced, experienced, and observed the outcome of various ways, by which we can improve our life and live with happiness.
The idea about writing my own life experiences and sharing it with other like-minded people was always there somewhere in the back of my mind. I am glad I have at least taken few steps towards giving this idea a shape and form.
This blog is a sincere and honest attempt to share everything I have learned in this journey, with the hope that anyone who reads this blog will benefit from it.
Every one of us has to start as a beginner in life, and keep on learning with each passing day. This is the place where I share life lessons from one beginner (me) to another beginner (you).
Thanks for being here. I wish you all the best in your journey and hope that, we succeed together in achieving the purpose of our lives.
[Special Note: My grandfather passed away on November 30, 2012. This website is my tribute to him. I owe everything I am today to his kindness and love. He will always remain a great source of inspiration for me and I hope he continues to bless me as he always did. I dedicate my work to him and may it bring happiness in the life of others, just as my grandfather brought in my life.]
