20. A LEAF FROM MY SCRAP-BOOK (THOUGHTS)


Rummaging through my old papers, I came across this advertisement of Kawasaki Bajaj which I have been keeping with me since 15th Feb 1999 for the sheer power, mental strength, grit and determination it conveys. 
I can't help sharing it with the readers of my blog, many of whom may be feeling exactly like this. Here go...


The more I sweat,
The more I shine.
I'm not a star,
There is no halo over my head,
Fate does not like the colour of my eyes,
Struggle and strife are old friends of mine.
Who am I?
I'm survival.
I'm guts.
I'm pride.
I like odds,
Especially when they are stacked against me,
Because there will come a time,
When I will stare them in the eye,
And smile the smile of
The one who's pulled it off.
I'm the person who will have
Deep line on his face some day
And it will make me feel good,
When I laugh
Because that is the day
I will fear no fear,
And taste sweat that is sweet,
And look back for the,
Very first time and say,
I did it my way,
The long hard way!
