Meaning is not something you stumble across, like the answer to a riddle or the prize in a treasure bunt. Meaning is something you build into your life. You build it out of your own past, out of your affections and loyalties, out of the experience of humankind as it is passed on to you, out of your own talent and understanding, out of the things you believe in, out of the things and people you love, out of the values for which you are willing to sacrifice something. The ingredients are there. You are the only one who can put them together into that pattern that will be your life. Let it be a life that has dignity and meaning for you. If it does, then the particular balance of success or failure is of less account.

John Gardner

    Hey Ashwani !

    Good job – I have read your “Helpless principal” & ” Kya Chori Karna Apradh hain blog ” and found them very interesting. Your views are very common to Aam Admi views and I would motivate you to write more and what better way than expressing it through blogs to the world !

    My request would be to write about general instances which happens to all of us on daily basis but we ignore them. I would like to read some of them.

    Looking forward for more reading !
