COLORFUL HERITAGE

 

Heritage

 

India is a beautiful land full of rich culture and heritage. These timeless heritage and culture makes us stand tall. Our history is full of men and women, who have left a permanent mark not only on us but also the world as a whole.

Every nook and corner of this vast country is filled with rich tales of its glorious past. A past that makes us proud hearted and head held high. To cover the richness of this country i am not an apt blogger. So, just a glimpse of the full of life city.

Calcutta or Kolkata,is  a metropolitan city in the eastern side of India. A beautiful city, made more charming by its history and without any doubt its people( like me!)

These are just some of rare moments that our city is full of. Come and visit the country, India and the state West Bengal to feel the vibrating pulse and rejuvenate yourself with its culturally rich traditions and heritage.

TEMPORARY ILLUSION

Daily Promptsratan-tata2

Superb speech by Mr. Ratan Tata, an Indian enterpreneur at a reputed educational institution.

Don’t just have career or academic goals.Set goals to give you a balanced sucessful life. Balanced means ensuring your health,relationships, mental peace are all in good order. There is no point in getting a promotion on the day of your break-up. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions. Don’t take life seriously. Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are all like a prepaid card with limited validity.

I just loved the speech to the core. It is meaningful in  present day scenario plus insipirational too.
