Wonderful post! Thanks to Sujat for this great reflexion

posted by Anand

Response of Sujat when I asked if I credit him in FR for sharing this article with me:

"Of course, do share Arthur Ashe's incident. Only thing, things come through various channels - channels r simply like cables conducting energy (eg: electricity).... and surely the energy is more important than the cable it comes through. :)

There is no need to mention the cable, particularly when it is a simple zip-chord yet working to be free of resistance!! :)"


Wonderful post... smple and subtle and also very always yearn for whT you don’t have and in that yearning you forget to enjoy what you do have! So ironical

FR reader

Thank you Anand for your Friday diligence and for sharing all these inspirational stories


A wonderful post, Anand.. thank you for sharing!!


You want own happiness when you are young, then you think you will be happy when you successful. But at our age, we should realize happiness is all about attitude

this is ridiculously good!


True. In chinese we have a saying of people who are in the circle of walls envy the life of those r outside of the circle if wall. Vice versa. We have to cherish what we have.
In chinese it means 感恩

Beautiful post! Thank you Anand. Humbling and worthy of long reflections.


Beautiful and absolutely true!


Really like this post. It helps us to see the true values we should pursue.


That is a beautiful message. Arthur Ashe is one of those heroes like Muhammad Ali and Jackie Robinson. His career was hugely successful and he was a pioneer in sports, but we remember him most as a great role model, and for his magnanimous humanity.

"You're born of a free will. You can play, or you can not play."

"True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost." (BBC documentary about Arthur R Ashe Jr.)


Shared with my Toastmaster club today. They loved the story

Thanks Anand this is truly enriching sharing


Wonderful article, Anand. And a great reminder to thank God for everything we have. Sometimes it’s hard to be thankful for the trials, but they teach us so many things in life.
