Everything is Possible #madeofgreat-Dedication

I quite agree that Facebook has reduced our face-to-face conversations and taken our social lives online. One reason I like FB is when I get  connected to people especially the old friends from school, college and  other acquaintances with whom I have lost touch years ago. I was catching up with  one of my old friend recently on FB.It is always a feel good factor to reminisce those fond and lovely memories at college. What a golden period college life is:)
It has been close to a decade since we spoke. We had so much to talk and ask the whereabouts of our current lives like what we were up to, saying hellos to their families, asking about  married life, getting contacts of other classmates.. oh the list goes on.. I don't want to mention her identity here hence  I will call her Ann .
Ann was affected with polio at a very young age due to which she had lost strength in both her legs. She used wheel chair and other arm aids to walk. But at mind she is as strong as a rock. According to me she is not physically challenged but extraordinarily abled. She is a confident and independent girl. She never expected help from  other students. I can still recall a day when I offered to carry her bag when she had to take the stairs to reach the Botany lab.She smiled and politely said thank you but she could do it herself. Looking into her confident eyes I did not want to force her- instead walked with her. She was very good at her academics, especially an expert in zoology. Ask her anything about studies and she had the answers ready. She is  a very dedicated girl . I used to always find her in the library after the college hours sitting in the biology section of books to research more on the topics apart from the usual text books. It needs an undaunted focus to do that. She always knew what she wanted to see herself as in  the future. She worked for it. She believed  that her strength in her heart and passion for her dream had surpassed her physical weakness. Long ago.

She is a doctor today specializing in human anatomy. Not only she made her parents and her friends proud but she became a source of inspiration to many around her. The 'many' is a lot who are blessed with all the parts in the body working perfectly fine, have been given fair opportunities and facilitates to study, given ample chances to try and prove themselves. But, instead of putting them to use they find innumerable reasons not to succeed. I mean forget about success, as it is not every body's thing they don't dare to even try.Their mind does the out-of-the-box thinking why it is impossible for them instead of looking the positive shade of it.For such folks, Ann is a living example from whom one can learn  to focus on what God is bestowed and blessed us with, rather than cribbing and yelling at what we don not have. I have also seen her family undoubted about her or her dreams  because they strongly believed in her. Trust was all that was required to do the magic.Oh! did I tell you about  the drive with her on her scooty? She can drive effortlessly to commute from her house to college. After the farewell, she took me to her home and introduced her family to me. What a lovely people they were:) The house shone with positivity, confidence and trust.
I felt so good and inspired after talking to her in years time.She also said that she has huge plans to make difference in peoples live especially the kids who are deprived of nutritious food and basic education. My dreams on the similar lines became strong and determined after our conversation. Two old friends coming together with a common dream. I felt strong. Awesome experience it is.

For those of us who search reasons for not doing what we want /have to do when we are showered with opportunities I  think we should go ahead and call them handicapped. Mentally handicapped  to be precise. A serious disorder to consider. Isn't it??

Thank you Ann. 


Tell me who inspired you lately? Is it your old friend/ a family member/ a stranger or anyone else.

  3. The story of a Legend in herself – that’s how I will describe it in a short sentence. Very well written with words which enhance the simplicity yet greatness of the person. Salutations and very happy for you to have got inspired and bringing out your best in life.

    My answer: Tata is a name which any and every person can rely on for its honesty, commitment and perseverance. Lionel Messi is a legend who has carved his name in history books with total dedication to the game, simple living and improvisation which is seen with each game he plays. The association of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi as their Brand Ambassador will definitely give an edge to the Tata group over its competitors solely because the brand Ambassador also holds the same reputation of not letting his fans down ever, like Tata Motors who have given the best to the world over the decades. Its an exemplary association par excellence.

    My answer is:
    Authenticity, reliability, simplicity, as well as its commitment to innovation are the pillars of strength on which TATA have built a brand that has put India on the global map. It is a brand that has stood the test of time just like Lionel Messi who tackles opposition on the field with his skill,agility,strategy,brilliance and raw power to reach and score a goal so has been the track record of TATA motors who has become a brand leader and a global giant.

    Here is my answer.
    Like minds think and act alike looking at the track record of TATA Motors it has stood the test of time and built a business that was built using bricks of hard work on a foundation of trust. Authenticity, reliability, simplicity, as well as its commitment to innovation are the trademarks of brand TATA Motors. These same qualities are present in Lionel Messi who with his immense talent has made a mark for himself on the international football field .Facing all hardships he has worked hard toiling on the fields and in training sessions facing injuries and pressure to come out trumps and be a winner. Thus these two greats Lionel Messi and TATA Motors are made for each other .There association is a bond of two legends

  7. Tata Motors' association with Lionel Messi spells a significantly notable alliance that will steer the company towards favourable benefits. I always acknowledge Tata Motors as a distinctive name in Auto industry, which will not let the success 'larger-than life' elude from its fate now with a timeless guild with iconic figure Messi. I don't see this union of Tata Motors as an aspirational effort for garnering some quick publicity and evoke specific reaction from myriad crowd with Celeb branding, but is rightly an embellished handshake for keeping up the pace to get to the pinnacle of success graph. To sum things up, I am joyous to see the brand and the star uniting for 'One in a Million' #madeofgreat power-packed drive ahead :)

  8. Yours is a very well written post your .Its is a very nice description of #madeofgreat
    TATA Motors is a brand associated with performance, endurance and excellence. These words are also synonymous with Lionel Messi who plays as a forward and weaves his magic on the football field.Just as Lionel Messi is considered the best footballer in the world ,TATA motors which is Indias premier automotive manufacturer gives wheels to the people of India with its wide range of vehicles. Both believe in excelling in whatever they do and set examples for others to follow. They compliment each other as both are reliable trustworthy and leaders thus Lionel Messi is the natural choice as the brand ambassador of TATA Motors
