Freedom is experienced in different ways. You even find it from the places and things you least expected. You are left to wonder, what was it exactly about that thing that gave you a sense of release? If you had known much earlier would you have gone and reached for it? But perhaps its wasn’t time, you may have not been feeling ready and that is okay. You don’t have to settle to what is seen to be the norm and much better for you as a person altogether. Or maybe it is just a journey, time to find yourself and build yourself without needing the approval of other people. For so long I felt there was strength and power in my hair. I remember being a five year old who identified as a boy and felt that my long hair means to be a girl. I just felt comfortable with short hair, but society said it was unacceptable. I felt my hair held my identity and if only I could get rid of it I would be who I want to be deep inside At the age of 14 years I was told to cut my hair because it was being damaged by too many chemicals. But then it was at this stage that I felt like, well without my hair I am not pretty enough as a women. How could I be a woman without long hair? I often had braided or weaves sown into my hair. Different colours, styles and lengths. But it had to be long. All the time, I was asked why did you cut your hair? I was once asked what about the boys, what will they think? I could only hear the words, you are not pretty enough without your long hair. I was even compared to male footballers who had the same hair cut as me. I couldn’t wait for my hair to grow back simply because I felt my beauty came from it and that its what made me accepted. So I hid behind wigs. I could not leave the house without it. So much pressure and questions of, who am I? Does my hair define me? I had been told that I prefer you with long hair from other women too. But hey, I got tired of pretending. So, I let it out. My short natural black hair. The first time I really stepped out and decided not to care, I felt a sense of freedom. Freedom that I hadn’t felt before. I felt comfortable and proud that this is me. Society expectations lied and made me a slave. But I am not my hair. My identity is not in my hair. I am not less of a women because I have short hair. So what if I want to colour it? So what if I want to be bald? There is more to us women than the length and style of our hair. We are all beautiful and we are enough. We do not need the approval of man on what our image should be. Cheers to all of us, whether long hair, short hair, bald, pink or blue hair, we are enough!

Meet Aditi Sood: A 14 years Old Artist who expresses her emotions in the eyes she draws and feels that there is a strong connection between Mathematics and Art
We recently caught up with Aditi for a discussion where she discusses her life, her inspiration, her motivation, her love for
#Drawing "eye" and if given a wish, she wants to give all #blind people an eye so that they can see how beautiful the #world is.
Nojoto Team: Hi Aditi, describe yourself. Imagine writing a story on Nojoto.  Aditi: I am 14 years old and study in Class 9. I am live in Kota, Rajasthan (India).
I love sketching, painting, paper cutting and I aspire to become an architect one day to make the place we call "Home" more beautiful.  

Nojoto Team: From where did you get the inspiration for drawing?  What motivated you? – Any person or a situation in particular?
Aditi: My mom is my Inspiration for my artwork. She is great with fabric painting & home décor.
My relative tells me when I was in my mother's womb, she used to do a lot of paintings, and I guess from there only, I got the skill and hold of art.

Mom is not just my inspiration, but my guide too, she guides me with how to make art how to sketch, and how to make it better and better.  
Nojoto Team: How did your parents, friends, school, hometown influence your passion for art?
Aditi: I spent my childhood in Kota, and ever since I remember, I used to make something or other and people around me used to appreciate them, and hence with that motivation – I kept on creating more and more art, and that's it.
Moreover, my father also loves my artwork. He clicks all things I draw and makes them his mobile and laptop wallpaper, and hence the strong motivation and love for my art motivate me to make more and more artwork.  Hence, I guess it's the people around me who've motivated me and has kept me going.

Nojoto Team: How do you take out time to follow your passion, considering you have to go school, study etc?
Aditi: I generally sketch on Sundays and Holidays, but more than that I always sketch whenever I have Maths Exam.

I believe there is a strong connection between Maths & art. I believe both are very similar in their nature, and at the end make things beautiful.

Nojoto Team: What is the most fulfilling thing when you share your artwork with others?
Aditi:  The most fulfilling moment is actually when I create an art, and the second best moment is when I receive a lot of Awesome, Comments, Compliments & feedback on my art. In fact, I love both type of feedback – positive, and negative - when someone tells me what I was lacking. 
In fact, most fulfilling is the moment - is when someone follows my art and tries to re-do my creation from his/her own imagination. This gives me another perspective to how he/she thought the concept and went about it.
Nojoto Team: How do you go about creating your art – Starting from thinking about it – to imagining about it – to actually drawing it? Describe the creative process, which you take generally?
Aditi:  Whenever I think of a concept, I search and see how other artists have gone about that concept, and then I re-think the concept with my own imagination. I mix both the inspiration I have taken from other artworks, and my own imagination and then start drawing/sketching. But I make sure that each artwork of mine has my touch. 

I also follow different types of artists and keep seeing what they are doing and I believe Nojoto actually helps me follow other artists so that I can know what they are doing.

And there are also times when I just paint/sketch my creativity, and actually not see what is already created.  Below is one such art called "Glamour" 


There are few more doodle arts, which I have created, and below is from them. 


Nojoto Team: Have you ever drawn yourself or your parents or any other friend? If yes, what was their reaction after seeing it?
Aditi:  There was one time in school when I was sharing my artwork online, and my maths teacher saw it and loved it. He requested me to sketch him, and I asked him to send a high-quality photograph to me so that I can sketch.

It was my first sketch where I sketched an individual from his photograph. And as soon as, I sketched and showed him, he loved it and in fact made his display picture across social media networks.
Below is the same:


Then birthday of a friend was approaching and I asked her, what do you want as a birthday present, and she said, nothing could be more beautiful than a sketch by you. And after seeing the sketch, she then told me - that it one of the best birthday gifts I have ever received.
And then this series continued.

Nojoto Team: What types of art you have experimented with?
Aditi:  I started with sketching, then experimented with a glitter pen and people loved that too. I've also tried my hands at crafts and they too have come out very well. I also have a collection of my crafts i.e paper-cutting arts on Nojoto. And if anyone wants to follow my crafts, can follow my crafts collection.
Nojoto Team: What is your most favourite procession with respect to creating an art?
Aditi:  While I love all things that help me pour my creativity and make something beautiful, but I believe my favourite procession is Pencil. Because with Pencil, there is a freedom to rub it off and change something if you want.
With the pencil, I generally start with the outline, and then little shades of what I want to draw, and then slowly I give it the final shape.
Eyes generally are the last part of my sketch, because that requires the most amount of precision and imagination.
Nojoto Team: Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Aditi:  I am an extrovert.

Nojoto Team: You know people love the way you express "eyes" through your art – What is the story behind it? And why do you love drawing "Eye" specifically?
Aditi:  I believe Art is all about expressing your feelings. The drawing we make is 2D, but because it needs to communicate the feelings and emotions and hence I believe eyes & lips communicate feelings and emotions better than anything else.
Also, when you see the process of a woman dressing up, you will see that she makes sure that she spends the most amount of time in doing her eyes, and that is why when I draw/sketch a woman, I make sure that the eye is given special importance.  

Nojoto Team: If you could do one thing for the World, what would it be?
Aditi:  I would give all the blind people in the world an eye because I believe with eyes people can see the world and enjoy its beauty.
Nojoto Team: - What is "your" favorite art till now?
Aditi:  The one below is my favorite art till now


Nojoto Team: What do you love about Nojoto? And why do you like it?
Aditi:   I like the concept that you can find people with Similar Interests on Nojoto and the fact that when I share my art on Nojoto, it reaches people of similar interests. 

Moreover, the point that I can create different types of collection for different types of art  – and hence organize my artwork better is good.

I have two types of "Collection" on Nojoto – Under "Traditional Arts" - One is for my sketches and other is for my paper craft.  

Nojoto Team: What is your message for other kids who are young and have a passion for a particular interest? 
Aditi: 
- Keep working on what you love, perfection will come automatically.
- Do not get demotivated, if you do not have perfection for something you love, keep working on your passion and one day you will achieve perfection. 

Nojoto Team:  What an Amazing Talent you are Aditi, We wish you tons of Luck and hope that many more people after reading will follow their passion as passionately as you.

Looking forward to more seeing more amazing artwork from you on Nojoto!

माँ उस रात चैन से सो गईं होगी 
बछड़ों के स्वप्न चले गए होंगे मानिद में 
घर में आश जगी होगी 
चूल्हे में आँच सुलगने के लिए अडी हो गी 
पिता ने पहली बार 
घर में उतारी होगी 
अपने थके काँधे से 
अनाज की बोरी 
माँ हरख से रो पड़ी होगी 
दौड़ी होगी देवी देवताओं को मनाने 
बिटिया ने जल थमा दिया होगा 
पहली बार घर भरने साँस ली होगी 
पहली बार पिता के छालों ने 
पसीने की गंध ने 
संसार की तखति पर लिख दिया हो गा 
पिता 
यूँ पिता ने पिता होने का 
हक़ अदा किया होगा  #NojotoQuote

Elon Musk chose himself: here’s how
Choosing yourself means taking risk, means not being afraid what people think, or your chances of success or failure.
It means doing what you want and hopefully helping the world along the way. Because when you help others, that’s how you get paid in a choose yourself world.
Elon Musk is inspirational to many people, including me.

Inspiration is somewhat of a risk: it takes you outside the world you once knew and introduces you to a new thought, person, idea, or something totally unexpected.

I want to find Elon Musk’s most inspirational quotes. The ones that might give clues to how each inspiration leads to the next. The ticking of the clock.
Here’s his quotes that most stuck with me.
1. “If something is important enough, even if the odds are against you, you should still do it.”
I often get stuck: what if something really is impossible?
But Elon Musk then takes it to the next level always: “let’s go to Mars”. Or “let’s make a billion dollar battery factory.” So at the very least it’s always worth exploring the delicious curvature of the impossible.
2. “Going from PayPal, I thought: ‘Well, what are some of the other problems that are likely to most affect the future of humanity?’ Not from the perspective, ‘What’s the best way to make money?”
I've interviewed over 100 people now on my podcast. Each of the 100 have achieved amazing results in their life.
That's a subjective opinion.
"Amazing" to me.
But none of them have done if for the money. I was talking to Coolio, for instance, who had the best selling song of 1995.
He started writing lyrics every day in 1977. It took him 17 years to have a single hit.
"Never do something for the money," Coolio told me. "Or the girls", he added.
3. “(Physics is) a good framework for thinking. … Boil things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from there.”
My guess is he is not referring specifically to the science and theories of physics but the act of visualizing something, coming up with an idea or a theory of why it might be true, and then figuring out how to prove that theory.
To me, thats what physics is. Since the rules are constantly changing, which is another fascinating aspect of physics.
Visualize a possible universe. Prove that it can happen.
4. “The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur.”
I wonder about this. What's impossible? Maybe a time machine is too hard to figure out.
But to make an electric car you can imagine first a hybrid car that has a trunk filled with very efficient batteries so you don't ever need the gas part.
Then it becomes a function of probabilities versus possibilities.
5. “It’s OK to have your eggs in one basket as long as you control what happens to that basket.”
Many people think entrepreneurship is about risk. In fact, it's the opposite.Good entrepreneurs don't learn by failure (the popular "failure porn" all over the Internet).
Good entrepreneurs learn by solving difficult problems.
Elon Musk controlled his outcome with Page on x.com not by destroying the competitor but by merging with it (paypal).
6. “Persistence is very important. You should not give up unless you are forced to give up.”
I always think this is the magic equation: persistence + love = abundance.
You have to love something enough to persist. You have to persist enough to deepen your love.
This is true for a career. True for a relationship. But only true for YOU and not what someone tells you to do.
And then abundance is the natural outcome. Not just for you but for everyone. Since wealth comes to those who create wealth for others.
7. “You want to have a future where you’re expecting things to be better, not one where you’re expecting things to be worse.”
This is incredibly important. News reporters have zero qualifications to inform people and yet they are all doom and gloom to sell subscriptions.
But people who choose themselves... first imagine a better world and how to make the leap to get there.
8. “It is a mistake to hire huge numbers of people to get a complicated job done. Numbers will never compensate for talent in getting the right answer (two people who don’t know something are no better than one), will tend to slow down progress, and will make the task incredibly expensive.”
When I was running a software company, we always knew it would take one great programmer to solve a hard problem in one night versus 10 mediocre programmers taking a month to screw up a problem even worse.
Ultimately, if you want to make a TV show, don't rely on the gatekeepers.
Take a camera. Make a youtube video. Make 100 youtube videos. Now you have a show. All by yourself.
9. “If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic – being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.”
And now imagine what it will be like 300 years from now when people look back at today. "They had to actually 'connect' to an Internet then!" or "It took them 7 hours to get from NY to CA!"
10. “My biggest mistake is probably weighing too much on someone’s talent and not someone’s personality. I think it matters whether someone has a good heart.”
I recently watched a company go from a billion in revenues to zero when a founder stole $90 million from the company.
Integrity, humility, and doing your best is by far the most important consideration when evaluating whether to work for someone.
In order to choose yourself, you have to make sure you have completely surrounded yourself with others willing to take the same leaps. Else you will all fall into the ravine you are leaping over.
11. “When I was in college, I wanted to be involved in things that would change the world. Now I am.”
I always wonder about the phrase "change the world". Can one person change another.
Perhaps the most valuable starting point is to do everything I can to change myself each day: to be physically healthier, to be around emotionally healthy people ,to be create, to be grateful.
To try and improve in these areas 1% a day.
Then maybe I can have a head start on changing the world.
12. “I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.”
I'm invested in about 30 companies. The companies that fail are when CEOs smoke their own crack.
Technology, competition, customers are constantly changing. But we have a cognitive bias to think that the activity we have invested the most time in is, of course, a GREAT activity.
What could be wrong with it?
So it's important to constantly question this evolution-based cognitive bias with constant questioning as if one were an outsider looking in. Without that, businesses fail.
And if you have trouble taking your own feedback, find someone you trust. Find an accountability partner. Ask: am I choosing myself?
And when you find one...find a group. Have a meetup of like-minded people. Together, is how we individually choose ourselves.
13. “I wouldn’t say I have a lack of fear. In fact, I’d like my fear emotion to be less because it’s very distracting and fries my nervous system.”
A small level of fear is motivational. It forces me to have a backup plan. The average multimillionaire supposedly has seven sources of income. They all have backup plans.
Even Elon Musk has Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, and probably a dozen other companies he's peripherally involved in.
Any endeavor I do, I always ask two questions: "What is my plan B?" and "What is my evil plan?" Meaning what do I hope to learn from this that nobody else expects.
14. “Life is too short for long-term grudges.”
I always think that I'm the average of the five people I spend the most time with.
So this quote is important to me. Don't spend time with people who can even incite a grudge. I try to spend time with the people I love and who love me.
Even when something bad happens, rather than blame, I try to think about what I learned. I don't want to make the same mistake again.
It takes practice. I am very trusting. But I hope to learn a little each day.
15. “Don’t be afraid of new arenas.”
Again, inspiration is a risk. It means stepping out of the comfort zone where you've never been before.
I try as an exercise to figure out at least one thing a day to do that is outside my comfort zone.
The other day I went up to people and asked them if I could buy a $1 bill with a $2 bill. Interestingly, everybody who was white avoided me. I was a lunatic. But everyone else took my $2 bill in exchange for a $1 bill.
You never know what you find when you experiment. But it's always fun and scary and good practice for getting out of the comfort zone.
16. “I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.”
I thought about this when I read it. I think it's ok for "ordinary" people to be ordinary also. Ordinary is beautiful.
But I think every day it's worth trying to be a little better (1%, an amount so small it can't be measured) in physical health, emotional health, creativity, and gratitude.
Maybe that is a path to extraordinary as that 1% compounds. But I don't want the pressure of "future extraordinary". I just want to be a little better today
17. “I could either watch it happen or be a part of it.”
Sometimes people say to me, "I missed the boat" or "I am too late". I think it's never too late to do what you love.
What you love is always on the shore, waiting for you to arrive, waiting with open arms.
18. “Being an Entrepreneur is like eating glass and staring into the abyss of death”
People say to me, "I hate my cubicle. I want to be an entrepreneur."
Entrepreneurship is a disaster. 85% of entrepreneurs fail and failure is not fun at all. Not to mention you have to deal with customers, employees, investors - they are all your bosses and not the other way around.
Then you have to sell, you have to execute, you have to build, you have to exit, you have to grow.
I like Elon Musks's approach of having many things to work on. Many Plan Bs. So any one entrepreneurial endeavor doesn't take up all the mind space.
One secret, though, to beat that 85%. If you start off with a profitably customer, the odds of failure go from 85% to less than 20%.
19. "I would like to die on Mars. Just not on impact."
I highly recommend Andy Weir's book, "The Martian". He self-published it. Then it got picked up by a major publisher. Now Ridley Scott doing the movie.
Discusses this very topic.
20. On his favorite book when he was a teen, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy": It taught me that the tough thing is figuring out what questions to ask, but that once you do that, the rest is really easy."
Here's my favorite part of Hitchher's Guide to the Galaxy: the idea that all you really need from a materialistic perspective is a towel.
Then the Universe sort of takes care of things after that. Hygiene is key.
21. "I just want to retire before I go senile because if I don't retire before I go senile, then I'll do more damage than good at that point."
The two most critical years in terms of dying are the year you are born and the year you retire.
So I doubt Elon Musk will ever retire.
