#madeofgreat

The first person who comes to my mind when I think of #madeofgreat is her, my source of inspiration, my loving grand-mother.

I call her aai (Marathi word for 'Mother') even though she is my grandma. And why shouldn't I!! Even before I took my first breath in this world she cared for me by nurturing my mother when I was in her womb. She is the one in whose hands I feel joyous. Holding her hand I walked in every garden in the vicinity. She truly did and still shows what 'Unconditional Love' is. I think that's what drives her and makes her who she is. A loving, caring person filled with life.


 

She is, no doubt THE BEST COOK in my life. I swear by my words that I eat ANYTHING she cooks even when I hate that vegetable (lady-finger to be precise). I love her cooking so much! Her new recipes that she tries even today are such a delight to me that I give her the credit to make me a foodie. She calls everyone on all festive occasion and serves them home-cooked food with love. Her dawat (feast) not only fills my tummy but gives energy to my soul. This fearless attitude of her trying new things even at the age of 76 has a great impact in my life which teaches me that; only when you try you’ll succeed.

 

Rhyme is the only way I think I could express myself and how she is my world to me.

I Never asked for anything still you gave me everything...

When you used to lift me in your arms...
It hid me away from all the harms...

When you used to sing Lullaby...
I used to fly-by stars & galaxy...

When you used to play with me...
I had enjoyed so freely... 

When you made food...
Its soooo Wonderfood...

Whenever I used to cry...
You were always there for me to make my pain die...

Your Care is so pure...
Your love has all the cure...

You are more than God to me...
Can never pay back what you have given me...

I can't ever describe what you have done for me...
Yet I know you will always stand by me...


I Never asked for anything still you gave me everything...


The way that stubborn little boy made Lionel Messi GREAT! In the same way my aai (grandma) is great by her unconditional love & young heart which never stops trying new things. Do visit http://madeofgreat.tatamotors.com/ for more greatness.

Success is relative

Time is relative. This is what Albert Einstein determined in his Theory of Relativity. To explain you this in simple words as I recollect from my school days I'd say if you are spending time with your loved ones then one hour spent with them would feel like few minutes but if you put your hand on a hot pan for few seconds it would feel like minutes. Considering you understood my example I'd like to take it further and relate it to a very important aspect of our lives. Success What is success? Is it money, social status, traveling around the world, having a relationship or starting a family, commencing your own business or getting a job? Well as I see it success is anything which you dreamt of and worked hard for and achieved it. It can be as simple as getting up in the morning or sleeping on time in the night. It can be getting your driving license or buying a car. It can be spending a quality time with your family or buying a home for them. Is success time bound?

#EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise?

One of the everyday thing which we use all around the world is a clock. It has become such an integral part of our lives that neither the day starts nor the night ends without it. But have you #EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise? i.e.: From left to right. Why is it not the other way round? The answer to our curiosity lies in sundials and in which Earth's hemisphere the clock was invented in. Sundials was an earlier mechanism which were used to keep the track of time. They used to cast shadows with reference to the sun's position as it moved from East to West. Later when civilizations advanced mechanical clocks replaced the sundials. But even though they replaced them, the mechanical clocks where calibrated to match the speed of the movement of shadow of the sundials and also its direction of movement.
