Quality of Life

By Sanjeev Singhai.

Ufff…. tired… Feeling this, I was half lying on comfortable sofa of American Express Lounge at beautiful T3 Terminal of Delhi Airport yesterday evening. And to get rid of full day tiredness, I was enjoying my favorite beer pint. This is when, I saw a gentleman walking in a black suit. He walked straight to a corner table, kept his handbag and headed towards the buffet table to grab something for his eating. After filling his plate he turned back towards his seat and This is when I noticed that he was 70+ years old Mr. __ __ __ (forget it, name is not important here). But yes what is important is that he was one of the top 10 industrialist/ businessman of India.

What made me to write this blog was not the person whom I saw, but what I noticed? I noticed that he was too hungry. It was obvious that the Gentleman never had a chance to have his lunch and he was desperately looking for something to grab. […]

Sangharsho Me Bita Jeevan

By Sanjeev Singhai. जीवन का इतिहास यही है जीवन की अनबूझ राहों में, चलते-चलते यह बनजारा, गाता जाये गीत विरह के, जीवन का इतिहास यही है. यौवन की ऑंखों से देखे, वे सारे स्‍वप्निल सपने थे, जिन-जिन से नाता जोडा था, वे भी तो सारे अपने थे. सबके सब हरजाई निकले, जीवन का परिहास यही […]

Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

By Sanjeev Singhai.

I came across this amazing post on My Facebook and thought this surly has a place on my blog to share with a larger audience. Do share your comment.

On September 18, 2007, computer science professor Randy Pausch stepped in front of an audience of 400 people at Carnegie Mellon University to deliver a last lecture called “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.” With slides of his CT scans beaming out to the audience, Randy told his audience about the cancer that is devouring his pancreas and that will claim his life in a matter of months. On the stage that day, Randy was youthful, energetic, handsome, often cheerfully, darkly funny. He seemed invincible. But this was a brief moment, as he himself acknowledged. Randy’s lecture has become a phenomenon, as has the book he wrote based on the same principles, celebrating the dreams we all strive to make realities. Sadly, Randy lost his battle to pancreatic cancer on July 25th, 2008, but his legacy will continue to inspire us all, for generations to come. […]

Test of Three

By Sanjeev Singhai.

One day the great Greek philosopher Socrates (469 – 399 BC) came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, “Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?”

“Wait a moment,” Socrates replied. “Before you tell me I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called the Test of Three.”

“Three?”, exclaimed the student.

“That’s right,” Socrates continued. “Before you talk to me about my student let’s take a moment to test what you’re going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

“Oh no,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it.” […]

Remaining absent

By Sanjeev Singhai.

It is always challenging for a working person to keep pace with his hobbies and passions. And I think I am going through one such phase. Where one finds hard to find time for, what one want to do and his work (which always a top priority for workaholic like me), family, his personal hobbies and what is in top of mind.

Since, I started writing this blog, this has been the longest absent in my postings, so thought better I quickly inform my readers on the same and connect with them.

Also day before yesterday, I was speaking to one very close friend with whom I could not speak/ connect in recent past. I complained to my friend that why you never contacted me all this while, when I was too busy and pre-occupied and friend replied: as you never contacted, so do I. […]

Two Friends: Anger and Ego

By Sanjeev Singhai.

I posted on twitter today evening (now yesterday):”Why anger and ego are close friends? Any answers?”

I got only one answer from Anmol, that too on my Linkedin page (as my twitter is linked with it). He sent answer: “they come naturally with the influence of power…..they take away your down to earthiness…. humans should try to neutralize their achievements and failures together.”

Ego and anger are interconnected. These two emotions are very destructive. I encounter it daily and I struggle with it many times. I think ego is the source of many problems in our lives. The “I” drives the ego.  Anger makes one take unwise decisions, say hard words, destroys relationships and take undesired actions that we may regret later.  […]
