I do not remember what happened when I met with my accident. All I remember was I woke up to a crying face of my little brother who was dismayed with my brutalized body and still trying to be consoled with my mourning mother who was putting a brave face to assure me that everything will be alright. My younger brother's and mother' crying faces brought me to that brief while sensibility when I said, I cant live without you and asking what happened to me? Why are they crying? My mother consoled, nothing happened, just do not open your eyes and sleep, you will be fine. She was afraid that if I do not listen to her, I may see my accident torment body and before I could sense the pain, it is better I sleep back. Getting me treated, hospitalized was "#Winning" for her that hour.
When I finally woke up to my full senses again at hospital and realized that how my life has changed and how the never resting me can now not even move her finger, I did no tears, I did no question. The only thing that I asked my doctor was- Will I ever be able to walk again? For me that moment, the ability to stand up and ability to walk, was #Winning for me.
This is how I wanted to tell you what #Winning to us is, case by case, time by time.
Oh Yes, in my recent, well recalled "epiphany" I see no God with flute or with cross, I saw a person who I met in bewilderness. He told me many a thing that I do not remember. All I remember was- I must keep going my way and the ways will find me. My victory will be my #Redemption.
Winning to me is not just self gratification but personification of all that I believe in, all that I strive for and all that I achieve- good or not so good. I have win them after all.
What winning to me is?
Winning to me is @Anil Agarwal , founder of Sterlite Industries, an Indian businessmen from Patna who also founded UK based Vedanta Technologies.
Winning to me is like blood that rush through all my veins, from powering my feet to my brain. Winning is never in vain. Winning is so much more.Winning to me like like this little poem that I penned when I was in school and on threshold of failure that soon lead me into winning. Here's few excerpts-
For Hopes never strangles
the breaths of faith
darker and darker the path,
True armor lays awake
For dreams won't shatter
If it is awaken to realize
& work towards attainment
Let my faith accomplice
For legs stops shivering,
goes all the butterflies
When soul access determination
and stood up for what heart underlies
For giving up is a folly
and cowardice, a cardinal sin
A Winner Never Quits
Quitter never wins!
[A poem by Ekta Khetan]
Winning is seeing, finding and attaining that light in the end of the tunnel
Winning is an ultimate redemption!!
Apartment to Let
lets talk about it structure and paint
lets entice some buyers
lets invite suitable tenant
Its windows told me a tale
tale of sleepless night
when there was only moon in sight
and loneliness prevailed
it stairs goes up right
built between a narrow passage
they takes stairs of flight
and fright, the one who is scared to climb
climb the vertical heights
Robert Sullivan lived above
he sold bicycles throughout
still his repair may not interfere
you can pull your drape and sleep sound
The "To let" said a rusted story
Resting in a rusted terrains
The rusted board stood still
it battled many rains
and suffered many winds
it told the whole saga in three simple words
it is not early if not too late
dust and corrosion made it fret
here stood a build of brick and mortar
with white blinds and corroded bars
The rusted board that stood still
It said- Apartment To Let!
Go for the kill!
Once upon a Hollywood studio
majestic, giant, of glamorous portfolio
The building needs to salvage
all the mortgage to bank
It was my abode, my dear
close to my heart, very near
before my financial lunacy beget
I will advertise it in open market
It is my apartment and
it is "Apartment to Let".

Ek "Koshish" to #DoRight, by Tata Capital
Yes, I need you to have a "heart" to hear it, a "heart" to listen to it and an equal "heart" to tell this to others who may listen.
Different is Beautiful
Two sparkling eyes, one camera and a million stories to be told
Who said that expressions are just limited to speech? Well if it alone was true than there would be no poem, no beauty, no picture and yes, no Camera! Yes, the still camera. The kids at "Koshish" found a new way for self expression and that is through pictures. Two kids- Shahin & Chetan were given mere 3 days of training on basic photography, a skill that soon changed their world. A skill that may change the world of several other such kids who are failed by "sound of voice" but the "frame of lenses" has found them. This small device still holds a great potential for these kids. How? Here's how-
- Medium of Self expression- when voice/words fails us, we click pictures and pictures tells us 1000s stories
- A new avenue to earn livelihood- Professional photography is very much in demand. A lot of people have not just carved their careers with camera but have also won accolades for their efforts and become world known to us
- Photo Journalism
- Photo blogging
- Camera for Curiosity- yes, you read me right. A camera would encourage them to search for new images, new pictures which in turn will motivate them to find new scopes like different flowers, animals, places etc which in turn may arouse their curiosity and help them learn about the world around.
- A medium for communication
- To help build and foster the culture of Inclusive Society
So, lets Shut out the noise, focus on the picture and tell a million stories, may be with a camera today. I believe there's a lot more thing that this camera will do for them. Here's the video-

Creating Gorgeous, Crazy and Sophisticated spaces in home
I am just few clicks away from it. As I tirelessly mentioned that I love "clear, clean and neat space" and I hate over accessorizing my house. I would go for simple, elegant and very choicest furniture and decor for my house. Here's my few giveaways-
- To begin with I would rather accessorize my walls and ceiling with beautiful paint works. The heart lies in choosing right color for right room. It also involves adding right textures to highlight the boring walls and make them look interesting.
- Less furniture but well synchronized with the wall paint, ceiling and to give an edge, I would love to paint that single panel wall that holds my LED TV in plain texture but the wall behind my bed in beautiful rainbow colors.
- Playing with natural sunlight and colors in rooms, allowing adequate natural lighting to accentuate the look
- Experimenting with new colors like Orange, Sunshine Yellow, Turquoise Green

The beauty is that it is easy to make and cost friendly to
customize with the age

Do not lose heart. Like all good stories with happy endings and a "Knight in shining armor", this story too got it's happy ending and a "knight", a "hero" of its own. The Hero was not one person but a group of people who joined hand and vowed to create a better environment. They together formed a cartel and took the torch in their hands. "We shall be the beacon and lead the change" was their motto!
