  12. There exist two very significant things that our generation swears by, something that is enough to propel us to chuck the comfort of our monthly paychecks in a jiffy. Those two golden factors are the possibility of living our most earnest dreams, and the promise of succeeding in that endeavour - both of which we hold very dear. But as soon as we look around, it becomes pretty clear that success (really) comes to those who will and dare, and merely wishing for it will not lead us closer to fulfilling it. The path of pursuing those dreams will be a struggle on most days - marked by days that are dreary, with an occasional glimpse of vitality. But if things ever seem to bear down too hard upon you, and you wish to rise above it all, read through the stories of these 5 men, who charged through their share of struggles, to live the dream they dreamt for themselves. 1. Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty © Youtube Better known as the man who pioneered inexpensive cardiac surgeries in India, Dr. Shetty was born in Karnataka. The second-youngest of nine siblings, he had his heart set on becoming a heart surgeon. Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Shetty performed numerous feats that brought him name and fame. That includes India's first neonatal cardiac surgery on a nine-day-old baby and the first video-assisted open heart surgery! It is, however, his personal project of opening a chain of hospitals, now known as Narayana Hruduyayala, that placed him on the national pedestal. His aim was to provide life-saving cardiac surgeries at an affordable price to millions of Indians. 2. Deep Kalra © BCCL Apart from being the founder of one of India's most loved online travel company, Deep Kalra also boasts of great educational merits. He is a St. Stephens graduate from the University of Delhi, and an IIM-A alumni. Life turned into a perfect dream when he landed a well-paying job at a bank, right out of college. However, within just a few years of trying his hands at many other business options, he decided to go on a sabbatical so he could figure out his real ambition in life. After having saved a fair amount on his travel booking to Thailand, Kalra decided to dive into the e-commerce space. Having gotten there in 2000, at the beginning of the internet boom, the enterprise now posts annual revenues of over 152 million dollars. 3. Siddhartha Lal © BCCL Credited with the turnaround and revival of the "Royal Enfield Bullet" motorcycle in the country, Siddhartha is the epitome of how conviction is the greatest tool one needs in order to succeed in life. Enfield's sales tremendously dipped in 2000, with the brand resting on the brink of pulling the shutters. However, Siddhartha stepped in time and decided to revive the lost glory of the motorcycle. He closed 14 other businesses to focus entirely on the automobile sector, and over the next few years, Royal Enfield was reinstated to its former glory. Not only did the sales improve, but the brand itself became aspirational. From selling just 25,000 bikes in the year 2005, the Royal Enfield sold 67,000 units in November of 2017. 4. Karsanbhai Patel © Quora Mr. Patel is the reason why Nirma is the pasand of 'Hema, Jaya, Rekha aur Sushma'. The founder of the Nirma empire, Karsanbhai Patel started his journey by making detergent in his own backyard and selling it door-to-door on his bicycle after his regular government job in Ahmedabad. The affordably priced Nirma, named after his late daughter, was introduced in 1969. The low price point and a quality product made Nirma an instant hit amongst middle and lower-middle-class families in the country. The rest is history. 5. CP Krishnan Nair © BCCL Mr. Nair is the founder of India's leading luxury hotel chain Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts. Born into a large family with eight children, and limited means in Kerala, luck shone upon the man when he received a lifetime scholarship from the ruler of Chirakkal. The future would see him join the Indian army, rising to the rank of a captain. In 1951, he set up the All India Handloom Board to promote Indian yarn on foreign land and this exposure to international hotels led him to open the first Leela hotel, named after his wife, in 1987 in Mumbai. In 2016, it clocked revenues of Rs 661 crore! Inspiration shall seek you out if you're looking in the right places. These people followed their hearts and fulfilled the dreams they lost their sleepover. How's that for your dose of daily motivation?

  15. Social media is where the current generation of tech-savvy and information-hungry junkies live. We breathe in the latest updates in the form of push notifications and tend to our serious cases of FOMO with the help of social networking websites. Not just that, the social media has also helped us in sorting out our need for instant gratification, by the means of bringing our every need within the reach of our palm. Whether it is food or entertainment we seek, it's all available at the click of a button. With as many as 3.196 billion global social media users, and almost 42% penetration in 2018, as per a 'We Are Social' special report, this power has also helped to change the lives of many commoners like ourselves. These people have explored the potential of social media to the fullest and emerged as the greatest social media celebs our generation has ever seen. For some, life has changed overnight, while for others it took a little longer. But they are here now, and they are causing quite a stir online. Here are the success stories of 5 young social media celebs of recent times. 1. Ashish Chanchlani © Instagram YouTuber and Viner, Ashish needs no introduction. It was a short video by David Lopez that changed the life of this engineering graduate. He initially started out as a motivational speaker of sorts, but it was his comic vines that earned him crazy popularity. With close to 8 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, his videos are hilarious with a lot of cuss words that make up his earnest expressions on the camera. He hails Akshay Kumar as his role model and is said to have started his YouTube channel as a means to accomplish his desire to act. Youngsters across the country love his work, and his online presence keeps on growing bigger and bigger. 2. Srishti Dixit © Instagram It was probably her take on the iconic character of Poo from K3G, played by Kareena Kapoor, that changed the Kanpur girl's life forever. In the video shared by BuzzFeed India, not only do we come across Srishti's acting skills, but also come to love her comic timing. And just like that, Srishti became internet's new celeb overnight. Her wit, brutal honesty and authenticity make her a relatable personality that her audience can instantly connect to. What's more, she has gone on to appear on various shows and shared the stage with prominent personalities like Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor. More recently, she also graced the pages of Verve magazine with Cyrus Broacha, his dog and her cat Patches. 3. Amit Bhadana © Instagram With over 11 million subscribers, Bhadana is one of India's most popular YouTubers, perhaps second to only Bhuvan Bam. The 24-year-old Gurjar boy from Delhi is popular for his honest and uber hilarious takes on relationships and intricacies of people's personality. With a bachelor's degree in Law, Amit had a hard time convincing his parents that YouTube is what he wanted to do full time. What's more, his parents were clueless about his endeavours when he started out. In an interview with HT, he said that it was his online popularity that finally gave him away. An absolute hit with young Indians, people cannot seem to get enough of his funny bones. 4. Tushar Lall © Instagram The mastermind behind one of the greatest musical revolutions to have gripped India in recent years, Lall is the man behind 'The Indian Jam Project'. The idea was to bring Indian classical musicians onto one platform and recreate popular movie and TV scores. A Music Production student from Dubspot, New York, Lall always wanted to bring together Indian classical music into the contemporary music scene. When BuzzFeed and MTV Indies picked up his first raw take on the musical fusion with 'Game of Thrones' opening theme song cover, he became an internet sensation overnight. The Indian Jam Project's work has caught the attention of prominent personalities such as Emmy award-winning composer Michael Price, actor and novelist Mark Gatiss, and Hollywood film score composer Clint Mansell, among others. Some of his covers of cult scores, such as the theme music of 'Harry Potter' and 'Star Wars' have gotten them a lot of eyeballs (and ears). 5. Kenneth 'Kenny' Sebastian © Instagram One of India's most beloved comic stars, Kenny's USP lies in his ability to satirise the trivialities of the Indian middle class, thrive on the idiosyncrasies of the underdog and bring out the relatable side of the most mundane aspects of human existence. His rendezvous with stand-up comedy happened by chance. It was during his days in college that he decided to participate in a stand-up competition being held by IIT-Mumbai during its Mood Indigo Festival. Guess what? Not only did he win the competition and the cash money, but also got his first break to perform at the prestigious 'The Comedy Store'. With close to 2 million subscribers on YouTube and a huge fan following outside of the virtual space. He's a super talented musician besides being a filmmaker and stand-up comedian. The guy holds a bachelor's degree in Visual Arts and is a trained painter too. How talented! Inspiring people, aren't they?
  16. Foreign Office building in Islamabad, Pakistan. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday said that Pakistan does not agree with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson?s recent statement about Pakistan. In a town hall meeting with the employees of the US State Department, Tillerson had said that he does not enjoy the task of dealing with countries like Pakistan and North Korea. "We do not agree with the comments and perception of Secretary Tillerson," Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted. He further said that Pakistan has undertaken largescale operations against terrorists and their safe havens across the length and breadth of the country with notable success. "These operations are being carried out in our own national interest and Pakistan is determined to rid its soil of the scourge of terrorism and extremism." Do not enjoy dealing with Pakistan: US Secretary of State Tillerson?s statement was made during a town hall meeting held with employees of the US State Department According to the US Secretary of State, relations with Pakistan which he termed an important and valued partner had drifted and had to be brought back to one of common interest. Tillerson visited Pakistan in October and held meetings with the country?s top political and military leadership. "Pakistan is important regionally to our joint goals of providing peace and security to the region and providing an opportunity for greater economic relationship," Tillerson was quoted as saying during his meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. The US Embassy, in a statement released, said the secretary of state reiterated President Trump?s message that Pakistan must increase its efforts to ?eradicate militants and terrorists operating within the country?. ?The Secretary outlined the United States? new South Asia Strategy and the vital role that Pakistan can play in working with the United States and others to facilitate a peace process in Afghanistan that can bring stability and security to the region,? said the statement from the US embassy. During the meeting, Tillerson also expressed appreciation for Pakistan?s sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. ?The Secretary also expressed his gratitude to the Government of Pakistan and the Pakistani Army for their cooperation in securing the release of the Boyle-Coleman family from captivity,? added the statement.

  21. I can't think of a better deal for men than women openly voicing out what they like and don't like. It's almost like you don't have to try too hard to figure out why women are mysterious, as long as they're vocal and if I have to give any advice to you lot, it's just going to be about how you should already know what women want, by the virtue of how they express themselves often. Don't get me yet? I stumbled upon this excellent compilation of 'women sharing their first date experiences' on Twitter and some of it is actually avoidable. It's only helpful for you because you're hearing it straight from the horse's mouth! © Pinterest A Twitter handle by the name of 'A Tribe Called Breast' asked some ladies to share their first date experiences and the ladies didn't stop telling since! Here, take a look and get some ideas, and the dos and don'ts in place! Ladies: tell me your worst date. — A Tribe Called Breast (@_ItsMissBre) 23 August 2018 A guy spent all of dinner telling me about his ex-girlfriends and how after each break-up he had to move out of their place and move back home. Then he asked how big my apartment was. https://t.co/XgbDwzzHhO — Danielle Sepulveres (@ellesep) 27 August 2018 Wow. Talk about a serial apartment inhabitant! Like seriously, why would you even bring up your ex girlfriends? That's one thing YOU should never do, unless of course she asks you point blank! Took me to a dinner where he didn't make reservations, so we couldn't get a table. Go to a different place where he proceeds to drink too much. On the way home asks me to get out two stops before my actual station to watch him pee into the train tracks. https://t.co/nLQ5Ecg0Kr — Natt à¸à¸²à¸£à¸¸à¸à¸£à¸±à¸à¸©à¸µà¸§à¸à¸¨à¹ (@nattgarun) 29 August 2018 Really, don't know what to say to this one except maybe plan your date better and don't drink like a thirsty goat on your first date? Why would you want to get drunk out of your mind instead of getting to know the woman you're on a date with? Oh and don't make her watch you pee? He picked me up on a Sunday morning. Thought we are going to have a breakfast date at a hotel. Ended up in the hotel's conference room where his church gathersð® Had to sit through a 2 hour church service ð¥ https://t.co/AL8br17vB2 — La Dolce Far Niente (@Onhwa86) 27 August 2018 Did I ever tell you about this one time I was on a date with a guy and he spent the whole evening trying to tell me about the goodness Christianity brings to people's lives, hoping I'd convert. He even tried to hand me some pamphlets. It was really weird. I mean what the fu** right? This one's exactly like that. Don't talk about religion on your first date. It really doesn't serve much of a purpose. © Pinterest Over coffee, he told me he was married but that his wife was "flexible". There was no second date. https://t.co/A20N8kGcl8 — Elizabeth (@historyinpearls) 29 August 2018 Uhh seriously? Don't pull this off. Ever. He talked about himself nonstop and only asked me two questions: 1) Was Michael Jackson guilty and 2) What was the point of the Dewey Decimal System? Then he got an emergency text about a fire in the chemistry lab he was supervising and invited me to come. HARD PASS. https://t.co/V6LUzTKJZ1 — Danielle Dreger (@DanielleDregerB) 28 August 2018 Okay guys, another reason why you may never get a second date is because all you did in the first date was talk about yourself and made the evening all about you and then just asked her to go home with you. I mean, why would she? Balance it out and ask relevant questions. Walked me to the bar, popped me down on a seat, said he was going for a shit, never came back. https://t.co/DC4aBoJbBH — Quim Jong-un (@sheikyerbouti_) 28 August 2018 Ouch. What a shitty excuse. © Twitter I showed up to meet a guy I'd only talked to online and the first thing out of his mouth was "You looked prettier in your pictures." Coincidentally it was also my shortest date. https://t.co/0vdA17mlnk — holly. (@hollydiggity) 28 August 2018 Yeaahhh, for all the 'blind daters' and people who meet online and then plan a date offline- if you don't like what you see, then be polite about it. He was a professional athlete who kept making sure I knew how impressive he was, and then told me in the car ON THE WAY to the restaurant, "There's a 90% chance I'm gonna sleep with you tonight." I guess he underestimated my 10% say in the matter. https://t.co/XlsKdTErvE — Kristin Butz (@TheRuralGaucho) 29 August 2018 This is just bad date ethics. Absolutely bad! Don't overestimate anything, ever! First Date: he took me home and we cooked/ate dinner with his mom and dad. https://t.co/jXBhnc2NOF — Kara McDowell (@karajmcdowell) 28 August 2018 Umm, why would you have a family dinner with your first date? What kind of a hurry are you in? Watched The Dark Knight in his room and he kept pausing it to check that I understood what was going on. Also lent me Sophie's Choice so that I would understand his degree better (he did philosophy) https://t.co/Zam06DkSGR — fre shavoc a do (@charlotteearney) 28 August 2018 I literally have no words except, don't underestimate the woman you're with, ever! © Thinkstock And here's 'Just Some Guy', acknowledging how 'wild' these stories are! the stories you all are sharing about worst dates are mad wild — just some guy (@b_eternal757) 23 August 2018 But seriously, if you're ever out on a first date with a woman, just be yourself, don't get too drunk or rude and underestimate her! Don't get ahead of yourself and certainly don't eat with your mouth open and always listen to the ladies!
