To desire or to deserve.
1. Learnt how to solve 3×3 rubik’s cube from cousin. Another thing off my to-do-list-before-i-die.
2. It isn’t all that easy getting into Stanford.Especially if you’re an international student. I hate to tell it to people who mail me with SOP’s and resumes and ask if they will make it here. Sometimes it may make more sense to spend a year (MS) at an Indian university like IIT and improve your resume rather than apply to some lower university in the US. Its 10 times more expensive. There is big difference between desire and deserve. And also understand that sometimes you might deserve it, but for some reason still not get it. Thats life.
3. “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader” ~ John Quincy Adams (6th US President (1825-29), eldest son of John Adams, 2nd US President). I like this quote. It succinctly conveys what i truly believe in and hope to achieve personally.
