Happy Birthday Mr.Endurance

It’s often said that when the going gets tough, it’s the tough that get going - and the toughest of them is my dad. 

Sometimes when I roll back in times and think of all those difficult situations and challenges that life had to throw at us, I do not get amazed by the kind of hardships and struggle it had, but what really amazes me is how my dad everytime managed to stay calm, positive and determined to show us the light at the end of the tunnel - so many times...

I dont know any other person in my life who would be able to survive and come out victorious of all this situations
  • Millionaire who was thrown out of his own house, builds a new life for his wife and son - giving them the million smiles
  • Man who survived a life threatening accident - feels never threatened by ups and downs of life
  • Person who helped many and  also got betrayed by few - still gives priority to other people's happiness before his
  • Human who has seen so much of pain in his life - skillfully manages to hide it and keep a smile
Today as we celebrate his 54th Birthday, I am proud to say that there is no father, no husband, no human who has more endurance than what Mr.Kshitij Shah has.

You continue to be our bright glowing guiding light for now and ever...

Dreams that want to live…

I have always believed that 80% of people fail to realise what their real passions and dreams are in life. And remaining 20%, who realise what really excites them, gives them high, makes them feel tireless, only 5% end up living their passions…

So what this belief of mine, means for me? I do not fall in 80% league, as I am confidentially concluding that nothing makes me feel more excited, addicted and charged then DANCE and DESIGN.  Dance has always been with me from my childhood – amateur dancer for past 27 years now. Dance lets me express, let me be free, let me be happy.

Design is my adulthood love, again an amateur at it. But ever since I started designing, the satisfaction and happiness I get when I end up making that clever logo or that simple and neat advertisement is beyond comparison. Gives me a great high!

I am a non conventional addict. Addicted to Dance and Design.

Good that I fall in the 20% that know what they love in life….but the rude reality is that there is nothing happening or being done for me to be in those 5% who end up living their passions. Whom should I blame it on? Myself? My job which sucks away more than 12 hours of my time? My fears of not able to full fill my responsibilities if dump away the mundane routine and start doing what I love? My constraint of going beyond my defined boundaries?
