Pankhon ko hawa zara si lagne do.....take risks!

Was listening to this inspiring song from Rocket Singh on the way to work yesterday. And what followed was a spotlight in the newspaper on the Irish runner who scored a gold in the 1500 mts at the paralympics. Seeing all the pics of the runners with the blades (and without legs!) with this song playing in my mind brought me back to another oft repeated statement "Whatever the human mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve." So what if you don't have legs? You can still choose (yes, choose, not wish!) to participate in a running race for your country.

And yet, how often people like us, with all physical capabilities, by the grace of God, still want to land and remain in a "secure spot"?

The "blade-runners" did move a few strings of my soul. They will have made many people consider getting out of their nests and attempting to fly, I think....
