They say if “to sell you don’t have to tell, but to sell well , you have to tell well..”  That prompts me into thinking, after all everything we do is about telling a story .


In his post Is marketing evilSeth lays a fundamental proposition on Marketing .

“Marketing is beautiful when it persuades people to get a polio vaccine or wash their hands before doing surgery. Marketing is powerful when it sells a product to someone who discovers more joy or more productivity because he bought it. Marketing is magic when it elects someone who changes the community for the better.”


Think of it, if you can tell a story that persuade people to “DO” (Lead India Campaign) or ask “India” to learn to teach the disadvantaged children in the rural and under funded schools (Teach India)

Or, bring that sense of Unity through they Free hugs or “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” . I think its all about how we tell the story, how compelling can it get .



 Telling stories that change, inspire, and persuade people into believing and seeing that creative common vision is where our future is, for it is only when we take  collective stand ,that the hopes and dreams  morph into reality , for when we start to work, no destination however distant seems unachievable.


The future for something to believe in , and persist is infinite. Stick on !

I was just reading  Becky’s  post on Finishing alone.

At the prime, it sends out the message loud and clear, “Don’t play to win, instead to finish..”

Human brain is remarkable in that way,for it can recall the precise moment something relevant happened,and it triggers you back like it was a time machine.

I just remembered a race in school where a close friend had participated. It was a big ground, and we had to take 10 turns and after 6 rounds my friend lost her breath, then.. A teacher walked up to the middle of the field, and ran along with her(actually they walked the rest 4 rounds together), and my friend was given a special price. Back then, I was a little jealous, as kids of our age are! But now, I know that it is important to finish what you start, or you had never started in the first place..

Reading through, I went to introspect my feelings, and what was I up to lately.

I think we don’t get what we want, because each of these days, we quit in our minds and our hearts. We are afraid of failure, of persistence, and of self discipline. We are afraid to show our face to people, whom we had proudly declared that we would be doing a gig or other.

That was insecurity is a part of human psychology. There are times we want to quit , but just because we are afraid about the **people** we don’t strive to make things right,and give it all that we CAN..

Sometimes I get up early in the morning, and feel that I am running out of ideas, may be I am skeptical of doing, or just that I feel that what I think is not worth sharing, but heyy..”I never said what I think or do, will be valuable to YOU..may be you know it already or may be I am adding to the clutter, you need to sort..” **



But deep down I have a satisfying feeling…I did, and that is enough..

**adapted from .. Elizabeth Gilbert’s Thoughts on writing,

<< I have a friend who’s an Italian filmmaker of great artistic sensibility. After years of struggling to get his films made, he sent an anguished letter to his hero, the brilliant (and perhaps half-insane) German filmmaker Werner Herzog. My friend complained about how difficult it is these days to be an independent filmmaker, how hard it is to find government arts grants, how the audiences have all been ruined by Hollywood and how the world has lost its taste…etc, etc. Herzog wrote back a personal letter to my friend that essentially ran along these lines: “.Quit your complaining. It’s not the world’s fault that you wanted to be an artist. It’s not the world’s job to enjoy the films you make, and it’s certainly not the world’s obligation to pay for your dreams. Nobody wants to hear it Steal a camera if you have to, but stop whining and get back to work.” I repeat those words back to myself whenever I start to feel resentful, entitled, competitive or unappreciated with regard to my writing: “

It’s not the world’s fault that you want to be an artist…now get back to work.” Always, at the end of the day, the important thing is only and always that: Get back to work. This is a path for the courageous and the faithful. You must find another reason to work, other than the desire for success or recognition. It must come from another place.



Every morning in Africa, a deer wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be eaten. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest deer, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or gazelle – when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Hey there, would be nice to have you around !
