Life is a journey that teaches every individual some lesson at every turn. The quote by Lao-tzu- “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” sums it appropriately. It is up to every individual to understand and make sense of what life teaches them.
It may not be always a rainbow of joy but clouds of sorrow, grief, suffering, and struggle that life presents to individuals. And the extent to which every individual bears this weather that life presents them with makes him/ her, an innovator, leader, or achiever.

Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan with his array of diverse performances on the silver screen has earned a large fan base not only in India but even abroad. He started his career from television and struggled dearly to get a break in Indian cinema.

Over the years he has dawned different roles, from romantic roles in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge to a more mildewed and sober teacher in Mohabbatein. All said and done, this Khan has proved that persistence pays in the long run!
Sachin Tendulkar is the epitome of hard work, dedication, and focus. A Demi-God in the world of cricket, this cricketer has gone where no cricketer has ever ventured. A classic act with the bat, he has broken and created records setting standards difficult for others to emulate. Sachin started playing cricket at the tender age of 16 and over the years his hunger to learn and excel has just increased!
An icon and a living legend of modern times, he is guaranteed a place in the memory of millions of cricket fans across the world.

Starting with a few Television commercials, she went on to deliver some laudable performances across comedy, drama as well as thrillers genres in movies. Off late, her appearances in movies have dwindled. The actress also is the co-owner of a cricket team in the Indian Premier League.
This write became popular with a series of releases starting with the book “The monk who sold his Ferrari”. The title sounds catchy indeed and the book too went on to become one of the hot sellers.
