Our mornings are incomplete if he does not converse with us. His day starts up pretty early and ends up the last. He is always around us and takes care of each one of us. At every moment there is something that you can learn from him. He is a believer, an entrepreneur, a man with principles and rules. The man I idolize, I am talking about my granddad, and some day I wish, to follow his steps and rule the kingdom with hard work and patience.
At this age of 85, he is the active man I have met till date, the simplest person who has created an empire for his family. The mantra in his life has been – SIMPLE LIVING, HIGH THINKING which has got him to the place that he is today. It all started with little he says, and as time went by things fell in place and there was no looking back. On this day too he does not carry a wallet and believes in utmost saving. He has his values and he definitely has changed with the times. Everyone loves his company, be it an elderly person or a youngster or a kid, a stranger he talks to all and inspires each one of them. This is the best quality that I like about him. Encouraging us in academics and our ambitions has gotten us closer to him.
The other day while he was playing badminton with my younger brother, he kept telling him stories of him being a kid and how things have changed till now. Little did my brother understand but we definitely loved his real life incidents. The number of places he is traveled and the aura that he has across when he meets people is rousing. I feel like travelling with a V.I.P when he is around – Fluent English, charismatic nature, soft spoken, kind hearted. Learned and spiritual combined together best defines him.
There are some people who are rough on the outside and the opposite in the inside. He is one of them. It is just amazing to me how he can be so quick and sharp with the calculations and business terms. That’s when I salute his years of experience and his energy. I hope we do you proud as you did us and each one of us looks upon you as a mentor in our lives.
