Contribute to the art form don't compromise.
Don't let commercial considerations rule
your creativity and
respect your audience because
the listener is not a fool.
Don't close your ears to any kind of music,
you've done that you've also
closed your mind.
Inspiration is actually a result of effort.
Be what you are and do what you believe in.
The greatest risk
is not taking a risk.
Don't let any one stop you in achieving your goal
and don't let
anyone shake your confidence
inspite of all odds…..keep fighting.
Be true to your task and do your best, leave the results to God,
he watches everyone and everything. Every man gets what he
not what he desires.
I believe that only four things are pre-destined in a human's life:
Birth , death, marriage and childbirth. Everything else is changeable
and each person's karma will determine the journey.
Of the people you meet in your life, some will be
some may be not, but experience
will show that it never
pays to be too
friendly or to have sworn enemies.
One never knows
when the friend may turn against you
when you may need your enemies help.
God gave us parents as his representatives on earth.
and always seek their blessings.
Be proud to be Indian.
