The second name of success 'Shah Rukh Khan' . It is very easy to rule the established empire , but it is really a tough job to establish your own empire . 'Asoka' on film screen is a real Asoka in his life too. As we have heard of the proverb 'If you are born poor , its not your mistake , but if you die poor then certainly its your mistake.' SRK is the best fit motivation who proves 'Nothing is impossible in life .' That's why we are presenting SRK on

SRK was born in 1965 to Muslim parents in New Delhi, India. Taj Mohammed khan , his father , was an Indian independence activist from Peshawar . According to SRK , his paternal grandfather was originally from Afghanistan.


Yet the family was middle - class , but dreams were not small . From childhood , SRK always believe in 'Where there is a will , there is a way.' He was a brilliant student and an all rounder.


 At St. Columba's School he won the prestigious 'Sword of Honour'. He was also the captain of his football, hockey and cricket teams all at the same time.

He started off his acting career from the Television shows . Both of these , Fauji and Circus , were the biggest hits of television at that time . In his starting years of acting , he always accepted what anybody else rejected .

“I signed films for the fear of poverty more than creative desire. Most of my initial films were discards of other actors. Deewana [1992] was discarded by an actor called Armaan Kohli, Baazigar [1993] by Salman Khan and Darr [1993] by Aamir Khan. I did them all to avoid unemployment. The time was right — I became a star,” he said in an interview published in The Express Tribune, September 30th, 2013.

He even did anchoring at several events , hosted several award functions , danced in several parties of rich persons , did endorsements , did motivational speaking in India as well in several other countries , that made him 'What he is today .'

 In 2008, Newsweek named him one of the 50 most powerful people in the world.
 In 2011, the Los Angeles Times called SRK "the world's biggest movie star."

Wealth-X's Hollywood and Bollywood Rich List released  in year 2014 puts comedian Jerry Seinfeld right on top of the rich list. With an estimated net worth of $820 million, the 60-year-old comedian emerged as the wealthiest actor.

However, it was Shah Rukh Khan, who was the only Indian actor in the top 10 combined rich list of Bollywood and Hollywood stars. Khan was found to be richer than Hollywood giants like Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood or Adam Sandler.

Hope you read our previous article From a tea-seller to a Prime Minister , today we are sharing with you

the success story of Namo himself .

So Narendra Modi is the next Prime Minister of India.

Narendra Modi is both an ‘enigma’ and an ‘open book’ for his supporters as well as his detractors.

Nobody can explain what exactly makes him so popular among hoi-polloi.  At the same time, he is widely

known as a person who wears his heart on his sleeves.

Even his opponents admire him for his bold and fearless stand on sensitive issues that can dent his carefully

crafted image of a no-nonsense man.

No other Chief Minister in India evokes as much hatred as Narendra Modi but at the same time no other

Chief Minister commands as much respect as Narendra Modi.

The hatred for Modi is community specific but he is admired across communities and his popularity

transcends  all barriers of caste, community and religion.

Let’s have a look at some of the little known facts relating to Narendra Modi who is positioning 

himself as a serious contender for Indian polity's most sought after 'hot seat' in  2014 general 


1. The biggest mystery of Narendra Modi’s life was his relationship status. The world knew him as a

‘bachelor’ till the time he declared himself as married in his election affidavit . A magazine

published a story in 2009 that claimed Jashodaben to be Modi’s wife. The fact that Modi never

contested the facts of the story gave credence to the content of the article. Modi's wife is a retired

school teacher and  lives in Rajosana village of Banaskantha district. She is said to got married with

Modi when she was 18. She had studied up to class VIII only and that is supposed to have spoiled

their relationship. It is said that Jashodaben does not like to be photographed as she believes she is

not good looking. Not only this, she is conscious of Modi’s high position and does not want to create

any embarrassment to Modi although she is hopeful that someday Modi will come to her and

publicly accept her as his wife. In 2014 elections the media covered when she went out and cast her


According to another popular story about Modi’s marriage, he got married during his childhood. It

was a child marriage and Modi never met his wife again as the ‘second marriage (Gauna)’ never

happened because Modi got attracted to RSS by that time and decided to remain bachelor for the rest

of his life. It is said that his wife also took the vow of remaining single for the rest of her life.

2.Narendra Modi is a patriot since childhood. During Indo-Pak war of 1965, Modi, as a 15 year old

boy, volunteered to serve the soldiers in transit at the railway stations. Similarly, in 1967 at an age of

17 years, he served the flood affected people of Gujarat.

3. Modi was born in an OBC family of grocers in Vadnagar of Gujarat. Modi wanted to become a

sanyasi when he was a child. In fact, he was always fascinated with Sadhus, different forms of

worship and meditation. He ran away from home after completing his school education. He visited

many places including Ramkrishna Ashram of Belur in West Bengal. Finally, he reached Himalayas

and wandered aimlessly and stayed with unknown but yogic Sadhus for months.

After two years of wandering in Himalayas without money and with two pairs of clothes, he

suddenly decided to give up ‘Sanyas’ life and returned home.

4. After returning from Himalayas, Modi ran a tea stall with his brother at the State Transport Office

in Ahmedabad. Modi sold tea for many years. That was the time when Modi learnt what hardship

really meant. It made him more determined and resolute in his approach towards life.

5)  Narendra Modi is very particular about his appearance in public. He prefers trimmed beard and

hair. As for his clothes, his favourite cloth store used to be Jade Blue of Ahmedabad. He ensures that

he looks elegant whenever he moves out.

6. Narendra Modi has done a three-month course in US on public relations and image management.

This could be one reason why he has succeeded in positioning himself as one of the most affable and

sought after politicians in India.

7. Narendra Modi adores his mother and never forgets to take her blessings whenever he undertakes

any new initiative- political or otherwise. Even today he went to meet his mother after it became clear

that Modi is going to be the next Prime Minister. In fact, she is his only closest relation. He has got

all traditional virtues of an Indian man. He  is a teetotaler. He doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke. He is a

complete vegetarian. In nut-shell, he is miles away from even minor vices.

8. Women all over India and cutting over age bracket adore Modi. In his home state, he is seen as a

sex symbol among women. A close look at his public meetings makes it abundantly clear that

women outnumber men among attendees. Analysts say this is mainly because of his emperor like

image exuding absolute power and authority.


9. Modi is a prolific writer and poet.He writes in Gujarati language and his favourite topics include life and

teachings of Hindutva icons. Narendra Modi is a big fan of Swami Vivekananda. His most recent election

campaign was christened as ‘Vivekanand Yuva Vikas Yatra’

10. Narendra Modi sleeps only three hours. He is a workaholic. As CM of Gujarat, he reports to his office 

around 7 in the morning and works as late as 10 or even late in the night.

"Value of emotions"

Today we are sharing with you a very interesting story . Here it begins .

Once an Indian Guru (sage) was teaching the art of archery to his disciples. He took a bird shaped

toy and put it on a tree which was on a distant location . He then told his disciples to target the bird's

eye . He then asked one of his disciples , "Dear, what are you seeing ? " The disciple replied ,"Trees ,

branches ,leaves ,sky ." He told that disciple to shoot . The disciple missed the target .

Guru then asked the other disciple to describe what he saw . The disciple replied ,"the eye of the

bird". Guru told him to shoot . The arrow hit the bird's eye .

Moral : Unless we focus , its certain that we can not achieve our goal . It is hard to focus and 

concentrate, but it is a skill that can be learned.

Value of emotions

Hope you read our previous article

"God help those who help themselves"

 Today we are sharing with you a story of Mahatma Gandhi .

 In 1925 , the Charkha Sangh was formed .

Gandhi went from city to city, village to village collecting funds for the Charkha Sangh.

 One day he was addressing a meeting in orissa . When he finished his speech , a poor old woman

came to him . She was very old, her hair was grey and her clothes were in tatters. The volunteers

tried to stop her, but she somehow reached Mahatma Gandhi . "I want to see Mahatma," she insisted

and touched the feet of Mahatma on reaching him. She told him ,"Mahatma, you are doing a great

job. I want to contribute to your mission ." She brought out a copper coin from the folds of her saree

and placed it at his feet. Gandhi picked up the copper coin and put it away carefully.

Jamnalal Bajaj , who was the incharge of fund-collection of Charkha Sangh, asked Gandhi for the

coin but Gandhi refused.

Jamnalal Bajaj laughingly said, "I keep cheques worth hundreds of rupees for the Charkha Sangh,

yet you are not  trusting  me for this copper coin."

 Gandhi said ," This copper coin is worth much more than those hundreds of rupees " .He added ,"If

a man has several lakhs and he gives away a thousand or two, it doesn't mean much. But this coin

was perhaps all that the poor woman possessed. She gave me all she had. That was very generous of

her. What a great sacrifice she made. That is why I value this copper coin more than a crore of


Gandhi Ji's these words show that its not only money that has value , emotions also possess a great

God help those who help themselves

Hope you read our previous article  

"Little Things Make Big Difference"


Friends we always say , " God will help us ". But there is a fact "God help those who help

themselves. " Here is a story narrating the same .

Once a flood was threatening a village . All the residents

were in a hurry to leave that place except one person who

was saying , " I am not escaping , I have strong belief in

God , He will save me ."

As the water level rose , a rescue-jeep came to save him .

But he refused saying , " God will save me .I don't want to go ."

With time , water level rose more . The man moved to the third storey of his building , then a boat

came to save him and again he refused .

The water level rose further , and he moved to his terrace . A helicopter came to save him but he

refused again saying ," God is great . He will not let me die "

The water level rose more and the man drowned . When he reached the God , he angrily asked

him, " I was having strong belief in you . But you make this happen, why ".

God smiled and replied ," Who do you think has sent you the jeep , boat and helicopter ? I have

helped you in many ways , but it was you who rejected all my offers ."

Moral : God help those who help themselves .And it is well said ," It takes action, preparation and 

planning rather than waiting, wondering or wishing, to accomplish anything in life ".
