The weather in Bangalore is at its best in recent times. Enjoyed the walk when it drizzled in the evening today. Watching the crucial CLT20 tie MI vs CSK. and as an admirer of Dhoni, wish MS and Team CSK to win today’s match.

Sharing one of my all-time favorite poems by Berton Barley:

” Success”

If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it

If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it

If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,

If gladly you’ll sweat for it,
Fret for it,
Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it,

If you’ll simply go after that thing that you want.
With all your capacity,
Strength and sagacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,

If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,

If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You’ll get it!

That’s it for today; over to match…Wao its 2 down for MI!

Good Night and Sweet dreams!
