Which is the eye and ear of my learning, and the mirror of my life.
As a kid I was always intrigued by the mysteries that surround people, places and incidents. I have been a researcher in terms of looking out for the truth. Though curiosity can lead to problems but I feel that it gives you a sense of satisfaction and mental peace once you get the closure.
In the hope and positive attitude that the heartfelt emotions being presented by me in this book will reach the people who want to build a good and strong character. Earning good money and achieving degrees and popularity are of No worth if a person’s values are at stake. I have learned in all these years of hardship that Morals, Upbringing and Values should never be compromised if one has to reach the top. Because the Sooner you will reach the top, the faster you can fall on the ground. So let us all be careful and maintain our dignity.
I have been hopeful however, I have had many setbacks. But this is Life…full of ups and downs. In a few people’s period of existence there is more pain than blessings. Therefore, one must strive to do good deeds to earn more blessings.

Learn to catch and harbor them
Accept Life the Way It is,
For it is the Hallmark of a Human.
Let’s get started with the roller coaster ride and the amazing events that define the life of today’s human being. Stay with me in this journey and delve deeper into the real meaning of liveliness, faith and confidence.
