Some Inspirational Thoughts....

This is going to be my first post in the year 2012...

Wish all my blog readers a very happy new year...!!!
I know it is late. But they say better late than never... :)

So in this post I would like to add some thoughts delivered by Dr.Abdul Kalam in a lecture @ UOM on 22nd Jan 2012 and which I collected from the Facebook updates made about that event by Vishaka Madam and undergrads of UOM.

*) You were born with goodness and trust.
  You were born with ideas and dreams.
  You were born with greatness.
  ... You were born with wings.
  You are not meant for crawling,
  so don't, you have wings.
  Learn to use them to fly.
   - Jalaluddin Rumi - 13th Century Persian Sufi Poet

*) An ignited mind of the youth is the most powerful resource on the earth, above the earth and under the earth

*) Finally, I would like to ask you, what would you like to be remembered for? 
You have to evolve yourself and shape your life. You should write it on a page. That page may be a very important page in the book of human history. 
And you will be remembered for creating that one page in the history of the nation 
- whether that page is the page of invention, 
- the page of innovation 
- or the page of discovery 
- or the page of creating societal change 
- or a page of removing the poverty 
- or the page of fighting injustice 
- or planning and executing energy independence mission

*) You cannot change your future.. but you can change your habits and surely habits will change your future
