From my early childhood days, I have been bombarded with stories about the bravery of Banda, the courage of Nalwa, and the glory of Ranjit Singh. As I grew older, I encountered the strategy of General Arora and the charisma of Jarnail Singh. I wanted to fly like Superman, dunk like Jordan, and kiss the noose like Sarabha.

Life has become so transactional these days. Wake up. Get kids ready. Send them off to school. Go to work. Attend client meetings. Respond to deadlines. Pick kids up.

Answer emails and phone calls when able. On weekends, take them to their games and Khalsa School. Everything has a deadline and life has become a competition. The drive is to outperform the competition rather than to develop the best with us.
