The story ..
When i brought Sheryl (my computer) into my room , I realized from that evening she is going to change my life. She showed me the possibilities .. She showed me the world that exists beyond this planet.
One Day she told me that she wanted to talk on phone. So she was online (internet).. That was the day she showed me that I can do many things and can really make the difference..
Now sheryl is old and she is not with me anymore… Linda, my new laptop..

I believe that “Human Knowledge Belongs to the World” . I believe in the open source movement. I don’t care about the business model (it feeds me though.. ) behind it but that fact that people are willing to share their knowledge excites me.
I believe in “Imagination/Dreams“. As Einstein puts it “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world“. He also said that “Logic takes you from A to B. But imagination takes you everywhere“
I believe that imagination and dreams are more important in Life. They are the driving force that keep this world moving. Today’s imagination is tomorrow’s reality. Imagination has no limits. Imagination defines your limits.
“Its Impossible” says Reason
“Its Reckless” says Experience
“Its Painful” says Pride
“Hard Rock” says People
“Try” says Dream
The challenge to Bring a Dream to Life
Want to know what my dreams are .. Just wait and watch when I fulfill my Destiny.
I have no special talents. I am just passionately curious!!
