Book Of Destiny
When I was a kid,
My father used to tell me,
About the stories of success and destiny,
& I was to young to understand,
What the word "Destiny" means,
And on asking about it my father replied that destiny means fixed future,
That made me fascinated,
And one day while telling me some more stories,
He mentioned about a book,
"Book Of Destiny" is its name,
Now,I don't why it sounded so cool to me,
But,that made me more fascinated about it,
I kept making grandiose fantasies about that chimara,
And,kept on finding it at every possible place,
So,after applying bone breaking effort,
When,I was unable to find it.
I went back to my father,
& simply asked,"Dad,where will that Book Of Destiny can be found?"
And,my father don't want me to know about it,
Before my age of understanding about it,
So,he simply smiled at me,
Saying,"my child just keep on searching and one day you'll find it out way soon."
So,after getting an unsatisfactory answer I returned to my room & made a wish to get this book,
From that day,I kept trying and praying for that book,
And,when I came to my +1 and chosen my stream,
My dad gifted me a book named as"Book Of Destiny"
After getting this dream as a present,
I eagerly opened it and found nothing,
It was just a blank diary,
Which was just named as BOOK OF DESTINY,
and after that extreme level of joy,
I found complete disappointment,
But,the words of my father after giving me that present confused me more,
That this is your very owned Book Of Destiny,
So,I started searching for it again,
& after 2 years of efforts,
I, found my Book Of Destiny,
Yes,it was that diary which my father gave to me,
& I found this fact too,
That this is not a book,
Its just a diary which will be blank,
Till,you write your words of destiny in it,
& at the end of this diary,
You'll definitely find you very owned one...
Book Review: The Hard Thing about Hard Things
I recently read this book
Something About Gitanjali Ravindranath Tagore, a man who won Nobel Prize for Literature, was the first non-European who bagged this rare award. India and we Indians are always proud of him. From childhood I am fond of Ravindranath Tagore’s writing but didn’t get a chance to read his books. In addition to that didn’t have a Bengali friend in past, who would lead me to read Tagore’s writings. Now I am in Bangalore. This city is mini West Bengal you can say. Even Mamta Didi can win polls by contesting from Bangalore, we use to say funnily. I got a very first book of Ravindranath Tagore called Gitanjali. One of my friend’s sister gave me this awesome book. Some people called it as poem book or collection of poems. This book was published in 1910 and the English version of book came in the year of 1912. I got the English version of the book. One drawback of English version is that it has only 103 poems. Other side the original carried total 157 poems in it.
Elon Musk Reading List
Elon Musk is one of the greatest minds of our time. He is the Founder, CEO and CTO of SpaceX, an aerospace manufacturing company, which claims that it can drastically cut spaceflight costs “by a factor of 100” and is currently being tested. The goal of SpaceX is to create the technology to reduce space transportation costs and enable the colonisation of Mars. In fact, SpaceX might beat ISRO by developing cheaper technology and we all know that he is the genius mind behind Tesla as well.
In addition to being a brilliant businessman, Elon is also an avid reader. In fact, when he was once asked how he learned how to build rockets, he replied that he reads books. So for all entrepreneurs who want to follow in his footsteps, here’s a list of his favourite books that might inspire you.
The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R. Tolkien
Elon has admitted that he faced a tremendous existential crisis between the ages of 12 and 15. During this time, he resorted mostly to science fiction and fantasy novels. He said that the heroes of these stories helped him shape his vision to save the world. As Galadriel would put it, “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”
Benjamin Franklin: An American Life - Walter Isaacson
Benjamin Franklin was one of the founding fathers of the United States. A renowned polymath with skills in writing, printing, statesmanship and diplomacy, he was also well known for his inventions of the lightning rod, bifocals and the Franklin stove. Although he was born in South Africa, Elon moved to the Unites States, where he completed his education, founded his businesses and gained citizenship. Writing on Elon’s reading list on Inc., Contributing Editor Geoffrey James says, “Musk probably sees Franklin as the type of American he himself would like to be and become: a combination of statesman, inventor and businessman.”
Einstein: His Life and Universe – Walter Isaacson
Being a keen student of science, Elon looks up to Einstein as a source of inspiration, and this book offers an insight into Einstein’s life as well as science, in general. One of the most famous quotes from the book goes as follows:
"An appreciation for the methods of science is a useful asset for a responsible citizenry. What science teaches us, very significantly, is the correlation between factual evidence and general theories, something well illustrated in Einstein's life. In addition, an appreciation for the glories of science is a joyful trait for a good society. It helps us remain in touch with that childlike capacity for wonder, about such ordinary things as falling apples and elevators that characterises Einstein."
Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies – Nick Bostrom
Elon has called artificial intelligence “our biggest existential threat”. In this book, Nick Bostrom explains his view on what would happen if computational intelligence surpassed human intelligence. It’s no wonder that Elon, who has always advised exercising caution while using artificial intelligence, is interested in this book. In fact, a lot of his thinking appears to be based on the themes addressed in this book.
The Foundation Trilogy – Isaac Asimov
In an interview with The Guardian, Elon said that this book taught him an important lesson: “The lessons of history would suggest that civilisations move in cycles. You can track that back quite far – the Babylonians, the Sumerians, followed by the Egyptians, the Romans, China. We’re obviously in a very upward cycle right now, and hopefully that remains the case. But it may not. There could be some series of events that cause that technology level to decline. Given that this is the first time in 4.5 billion years where it’s been possible for humanity to extend life beyond Earth, it seems like we’d be wise to act while the window was open and not count on the fact it will be open a long time.”
