6 People I am really thankful to…
For convincing me that, even with so much selfishness, there is still a thing called ‘Love’. If someone just comes up to me and tells that there is no such thing as love, I am going to slap him/her (or better still, throw a slipper on him ;-), and become a celebrity), and ask the person to go and look at the Taj. Its impossible to make such a monument without a feeling called love. For those, who have still not seen it; I can only say that I feel sorry for you. Go and see it. Its once in a lifetime or I don’t know what, that love is personified s beautifully. Don’t miss it for anything. And please don’t go alone. 🙂
Couldn’t have been more thankful to anyone else. It is because of him that we have all our books today. If he had not invented the printing press, we would not have been able to read all those books that surround us. If it hadn’t been for him, we would still be reading text written on leaves!!!
Thank you so much for making this knowledge so accessible to all of us.
Thank you for almost everything we have today.
Before knowing him, I believed in Chinese Prime Minister’s call – “To be rich, is glorious”. Now before you make a biased opinion about me, let me clarify that I was not a person after money, but yes, who doesn’t like making money? Then Mr. Buffet came into my life (No, I haven’t met him. But I have read and researched a lot on him). Being the richest man on planet is not an easy task. But being the richest and still knowing the value of simplicity, frugality and stability is really somehting. And this is what defines him. Giving life much more importance than money. Money is there to help us lead a comfortable life. And its is really not the other way round.
Life is not there to earn loads and loads of money. LIfe is there to live life.
Thanks sir. Thank you so much for making me realise this truth early in my life,
So being selfish is wrong?
She said no, its not. She made the world realise that we all are born for a reason. A reason that is not for the benefit of all, but our own. We are here for ourselves and not others. We can’t give anything to anybody, till we are able to create. Every man is an end in himself. Not a means to end of others.
Thank you so much for making me realise that I am not answerable to everyone.
Thank you for helping me to gain the ability to think objectively.
Thank you for giving me this ability to decipher between a creator and a parasite.
And when you said that love is exception making, nobody had ever before, been so right!
John D. Rockefeller

Thank you sir. Thank you for changing the definition of big for me.
Thank you for personifying the word ‘superlative’.
Thank you. Thank you for not being there.
Thank you for not being where I wanted you to be.
Thanks for teaching me that reciprocation is not obvious.
For teaching me that, we can’t have everything in life.
For teaching me that there is no point in forgetting things that hurt.
Because sooner or later, we become used to those things.
Thank you for teaching me that there is no point in running from the past.
Everyone is haunted by their past, and I am one of everyone.
Thanks a lot for teaching me that life does really go on.
Once again, thank you to all of you. I would really have been a different person altogether, if it had not been for you all.
