I just finished watching Invictus and all i could say at the end of the movie was "wow". It really blows your mind and heart away.

This movie is pure inspiration on Leadership. It connects to you on all levels. Re-building a nation takes more than just being in power. Being at the top with all the power also means the responsibility to lead those who are under you. This is what Invictus is all about. Pure leadership.

Leadership at its best...

Clint Eastwood/Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon have done an amazing job in making such an amazing movie.

For all those who havent seen it, then let me tell you are missing out on something really amazing..

Being at peace with myself

What does going to a place of worship like a Gurudwara or a temple mean to anyone?

I dont know what it means to others but for me it is the chance or the opportunity that i get to be with me and only me. Sitting there listening to the shabad kirtan (hymns) simply allows you to be with yourself and let go off everything else. It allows me to seek forgiveness for anything wrong that i may have done intentionally or unintentionally. It allows me to forgive those who may have done wrong to me intentionally or unintentionally.

Being there allows me to be at peace with myself. It strengthens my faith in the fact that there is someone out there watching over you who will be with you till the time you are doing the right thing. It allows me to be a stronger man to take on the world and fight another day.

Sometimes i get to go to the Gurudwara but sometimes i dont and when i dont all i have to do is close my eyes and say to myself a small prayer concluding with "Wahe guru ji da khalsa..wahe guru ji de fateh".

sher o shayeri

Uski aankhon main dekha to...
uski aankhon main dekha to aisa jaise ki bahar agayi....

apni aankhon ko band kara to..
apni aankhon ko band kara to dekha ki hamare beech ka faansla mohabbat kha gayi

something i wrote after a long time

Jetlite S2 656

I recently had a very interesting flight on my way back from Goa (official conference). On our way back i was on board the Jetlite S2 656 flight from Goa to Mumbai.

Once everyone was onboard and the doors were shut...the captain spoke "Ladies and gentleman and kids if any, it is my pleasure to welcome you aboard our Jetlite flight s2 656 to Mumbai. Flight officer Ms abcd efgh will be flying all you wonderful people to Mumbai on her first flight today. Our spectacular crew led by Ms xyz will try their best to live upto your expectations so that you have a wonderful flight. Having said that let me also tell you that once we take off for the passengers sitting on the right side of the aisle will be able to see the wonderful beaches of Goa and for the passengers sitting on the left..umm..sorry..theres ntn on that side. They say that a man's best friend is a dog but for all the passengers on the right side their best friend at this point of time would be a pair of powerful binoculars"..and he went on for 5 - 10mins...this ensured that everyone was laughing like crazy on the flight..

and then in the end he said.."folks, let me tell you that we are going to be on the taxiway for some more time as we dont have take off clearance yet and i dont know how long it can take"...

this is something that should have had everybody cursing the flight crew, the airport authorities and what not but then here on this flight..even after saying all this..the passengers gave a big hand and applauded the effort of the one seemed to mind that the flight got delayed..

This is what is called innovation in customer service.
