A lot of people are playing cricket, but they are not enjoying it because they want to get 1,000 wickets, 100 runs, so they are playing for the wrong reasons. This will put a lot of pressure on you even in a normal game and it will freeze you. So, just enjoy the process.
Mahatma Gandhi loved his country and culture while recognising its disfiguring qualities. He was not a jingoist, a xenophobe or a nationalist who believed that his country was perfect.
An Air Force officer today spoke to me to say that the picture of [PM] Narendra Modi flying in an Air Force jet without the glass cover 25,000 feet above and waving out is fake because at that height Modi would have been sucked out by the atmosphere and fallen to the ground.

I felt I was not doing anything exciting. The world was moving in that direction, which is when I had the desire in me to move a different way. The universe then aligned itself.
