A smile....

I was going on a bike to home thinking about something....and there I saw a person with smile talking on phone with someone....and I started thinking about a person's best appearance...when he/she is smiling....a smile can change a it did mine....I was in a meeting and was trying to sell my point to the client (back in MBA time, when I had dedicated myself to a crusade of earning monies through live projects)....I could see that I had failed miserably....and I returned to come back to sit...with a little setback....and I turned to see a person smiling....that was the best smile I could ever see at that was reassuring that I will succeed ....(needless to add that in the end I actually succeeded) is so tough to add a smile to anyone's face (and in life)...though I would love to believe that I am perfect in that :)....
I wonder why people do not keep smiling? I try to smile myself no matter what. I have failed miserably in life so many times and I could hardly summon courage from within to smile for still happens though now I know the art of masquerading with one can ever even see what is happening inside me...coz I am always there with a smile...

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.

Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
