The longest journey begins with a single step.
I accidentally bumped into article on Siddharth when I was doing some other search on google ( you could see the article is dated March 2005 ). For someone with cereberal palsy to be able to successfully complete a post-graduate degree and also find a decent job on is own, is stunning by all standards.
"Leading a simple and beautiful life", and what would that mean? The best of the lives are lived by the unknown, in anonymity. I have come to believe that a life lived beautifully has a subtle and positive influence on many, even after the actual physical demise of the person. How then would we know a beautiful life? We do know that beauty is a relative term and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So by logic, there is no definite definition for beauty.
