93 and 89

Few weeks ago, I was asked to take half-a-day workshop for the new batch of MBA students in the same college that transformed my life nine years ago. I readily agreed and volunteered to speak about the topic of my interest ~ 'passion'. It was a very nostalgic experience for me to visit the same classroom and interact with the students and share some perspectives with them. While browsing a bit on the web and preparing myself for the class, I came across a video and thought it would give a perfect closure for my talk. I watched the video 5 or 6 times before I played it in the class and every time I watched the video, it gave me a very unusual adrenaline rush. It is about Fred Becky, 89 year young boy climbing the Dolomites. The only reason for him to climb, he says, "because I've never climbed Dolomites".

And today I came across one more video and was absolutely bowled over by the same. It is about Jack English, 93 year young boy, a violin bow maker living in a remote cabin of Big Sur, California. The reason he moved into the wilderness he says, "I love this kind of life".

and there will be many more...to pick ourselves and move on!
