Mentor


I have been trying to get a mentor for me, I have been stuck in so many things professionally, technically that I am in lockout stage of my life.

I wanted someone to go in my head, come to the same pitch and help me, someone to hold my finger and help me walk.

In short I am finding a father figure, the world which is short of, in case you don’t have a father.

I need pampering, spoiling, spanking, that one stare, bear hug etc etc etc.

Hope to find that I person before I depart from this world!

Things to look for!!!


It’s tough these days to stay afloat to what one wants to achieve or do. Things keep us at bay by one hurdle to next. But now I am getting firmer day by day on one believe, as long as one keeps on doing it, irrespective one reads a page of book once a week or month. The important thing not to leave it.

Far better if instead of reading once a week, we read two lines of a book in a day. We must keep on doing it.

I have been keep chasing my dreams and passion similarly. I love motivation and self development stuff since day 1. So thought to share something for those who are into it.

Below I am jolting down couple of things that I have been going along, thought those who might be interested should look at it, if you already deals with some of these below mentioned things, do share your experience with me, if not, spare sometime and go through to these personal preferences of mine in my daily routine. I am sure you will love it.

So here are the list of things I have been taking with me, in-spite of all my laziness:

  1. Install TuneIn Radio app, an excellent app I would say to keep it glued in case you want to self indulge yourself.
  2. Follow Tim Ferriss show, book, blog, podcast. I would specifically advice to download podcast app, that helps you download all the podcast of him. He talks to famous personality and breaks their routine, habits, likes and dislikes. Have been actively following him for sometime, and I must say, he is the first one, who kept me glued with his podcast. One has to be very attentive while listening to all his podcast. It’s way excellent.
  3. I recently came across an excellent website for those who wants to learn programming. It’s so simple and easy to use, that I am in love with it. There is 800 hours of teaching material in it. It’s so simple and amazing that you will be indulged into it. The name of the website is http://www.freecodecamp.com
  4. Those of my Muslim friends / readers who want to do Zikr, there is a great app by the name of tasbeeh counter by AwardSofts, it’s amazing simple and easy to use and track and follow up on your progress.

I will look forward to your comments, as to how you like my recommendations.

Take care and stay best.

Being Busy


It’s been a long passage of inactivity, a place which I once decided, to put my thought have been taken over by a healthy, active, questioning, full of life, giggling and smiling daughter. She turned 3 with the blessing of God.

Not a single day pass, that she didn’t took my stress away, with her loud, soft, muted voice and giggle.

So all the plans, decision, goals, ambitions etc etc are directed to one and only life pill.

Thought to share to those who might wish to stay connected through this mode of channel with me.

It’s been loads of inactivity but I am continuously seeing people have gone through my post, for which I am deeply honored and blessed.

With the grace of God, I intend to keep this space occupied.

Take care and stay best.

Stay Humble


“At the peak of my career, I was once travelling by plane. The passenger next to me was elderly. Dressed in a simple shirt and pant, he appeared middle class but well educated. Other passengers kept glancing at me. But this gentleman appeared unconcerned. He read his newspaper, looked out of the window, and when tea came, he sipped it quietly. Trying to strike a conversation, I smiled. The man courteously smiled back and said hello. We got talking and I brought the subject to cinema and asked, “Do you watch films?” The man replied, “Oh, very few. I did see one many years ago.” I mentioned that I worked in films myself. The man said, “Oh, that’s nice. What do you do?” I replied, “I am an actor.” The man nodded, “Oh, wonderful.” That was it. When we landed, I held out my hand and said, “It was good to travel with you. By the way, my name is Dilip Kumar.” The man shook my hand and smiled, “Thank you. I am J. R. D. Tata.” I learned, no matter how big you are, there is always someone bigger. Be humble. It costs nothing.”
– Dilip Kumar

The Art of Applying Knowledge!!!


– One lamp to the other.
– Close fist with open fist.
– Choose the easiest way out of the options.

Today’s lesson came from one of my colleague, I have been facing some issues on which I have been working on. It has been 3 years or so since I have been working in my present organization, and recently started to have sedentary sittings with him.

It’s mine and my other colleagues admiration towards him (Masha Allah, Alhamdolillah and In sha Allah Taalah) that the way he tackle with the issue has led me to write this blog post.

This is was second major sitting with him, when I was stuck up with something big, and in each of my issues, he came up with some very simple, logical, practical and objective driven answers.

When we are finished, I asked him the secret ingredient/s of his simple magical trouble shooting tip.
He said, before I start anything or is involved in any issue, I recite the following Quranic Verses:

سُبْحَانَكَ لاَ عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلاَّ مَا عَلَّمْتَنَا إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ

English Translation:

“Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what you have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise.”

Reference: Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) Chapter 2, Verse no. 32

He said, The most important thing is to give everything into the Hands of Allah Subhan Waa Taalah / God. Once you are submissive to HIM, you will realize, how things started to work out for you.
Secondly, As per the teachings of the Last Prophet of Allah Subhan Waa Taalah / God Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, is to choose the easiest option out of the available choices. He said, when you are submissive and gave everything to Allah Subhan Waa Taalah / God to help you, your mind comes up towards either the exact solution or different options comes up in front of you. You just has to choose which is the easiest amongst the choices.

That’s the secret ingredient of his simple trouble shooting tip.

He carries on and gave me one more great advice, which I would like to share for my future reference and for everyone.

He said, my father advised me, if you light one lamp, from another lamp, the light of the first lamp will never fade out, similarly, when you share knowledge with others, it will never fade out, instead it will grow. He further gave an example, if you close the fist of your hand with something, what lies in the fist will remain, but if you open it for everyone to take what’s in it, you will end up not only giving what you have but also in receiving more as well.

Similarly, when you share knowledge it will never be reduced but enhanced unlike wealth. If you give it to someone, you will be left at one time with nothing, but if you spread the knowledge, it will remain with you forever.

He said, in our profession which is Finance and Accounts and generally as well, people have a natural tendency, to hide things, not to share so that others with benefit, he said, if someone is destined to be in my seat, he will come irrespective, I share something with him or not.

Ladder to success and achievementThat comes to my final lesson of the day, Don’t read Quran or any other book the way it is, apply what’s written in it, in your practical life, only than you will get the charm and benefit of it in real life, which is THE “Art of Applying Knowledge”.

So today’s lesson for me and for everyone is:

– GIVE SUBMISSION TO ALLAH SUBHAN WAA TAALAH / GOD BEFORE EMBARKING INTO ANYTHING – SMALL OR BIG TASK.

– HAVE FIRM FAITH AND BELIEVE THAT IT’S UPTO ALLAH SUBHAN WAA TAALAH / GOD TO DIRECT YOU TOWARDS THE SOLUTION. EFFORTS REMAINS IN YOUR HAND!!!

– SHARE AND SPREAD KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT SEEKING ANYTHING IN RETURN.

– KNOWLEDGE WILL NOT DECREASE LIKE WEALTH.

– APPLY WHAT YOU LEARN OR READ.
