Happy Diwali

29 Oct

” I was 21 and had spent the last few years in Stanford University Engineering School at California. Many people advised me to take up a nice, cushy job rather than face the challenges of running a hydrogenated oil business. Looking back, I am glad I decided to take charge instead. Essentially leadership begins from within. It is a small voice that tells you where to go when you feel lost. If you believe in that voice, you believe in yourself.”

― Azim Premji

Azim Premji is an Indian entrepreneur( Wipro) whom admire for values and capacity for social good with philanthropic ventures in school & education.   I read this quote yesterday and wanted to share for you dear friends. Leadership begins within. We should trust our inner voice more..

I want to wish friends and every one kind enough to pass this space a Happy Diwali. From these parts on this day of festival of lights, hope every part of your life blooms with love and grace. Smile and stay happy for no reason. Reason may flow…

My apologies for not being regular as much wanted to be on blog. I am struggling with a infection and a punishing schedule. I love blogging and so miss it terribly. It’s the only voice that have. I will try to squeeze some time and energy. I will make it up at least on weekends.

I still struggle with some memories of life and the lonely and often turbulent path that have taken, the loneliness and struggle come back to me often as packets of synapses and sometimes it’s a trench that dig myself. I think there is no solution and am not sure if there is anything as permanent consciousness or everlasting meditation or grace. If there is, am not there yet. I have to battle with myself. I have no battles outside.

So is it all struggle? No at all..

Very early in life inspired by reading french philosophers, work of scientists, entrepreneurs and writers my goal was to take a original path and change the world. My failures are completely my own. My  humble success due to opportunities given by others. I wanted to do great work. I still have an opportunity and that have been trusted with a big opportunity in my organization, makes me excited and grateful…

Yes want to change the world. I may not have anything else, but the opportunity to work makes me happy. I need to do two things:

– Personal life : Be the person always was, naive, curious, naughty, loving, happy, quiet..

– Professional life -Be the person when started work self confident, vulnerable, irreverent, happy, belief..

I am grateful to all good memories and bad memories that have shaped me.

I hope am not self engrossed. Robert De Niro said in a talk ” Without pain , what is there to talk about..”

So wish you a happy weekend and festival of lights. I miss conversations and if you wish to comment on anything, please comment or reach out at : sureshnair71@hotmail.com. I will try to respond as soon as possible.

As for friends, please call….

Happy Diwali and much love. Suresh
