Do we need to be a copy cat ?

I always used to wonder do we need to be a copy cat ? People tend to always compare with people successful(according to some parameters of their own) and start saying they did some X and they are if you want to that you should also do that X.

I was thinking....there are different routes to a destination.Each one can chose his own according to his choice,passion and dreams. Do all of us need to chose the same path?

I like and admire lot of people...Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa,Mahatma Gandhi,Martin Luther King,Nelson mandela.....and recently our Barack Obama.

They are successful in their own terms and contributed alot to this world. I admire them and love to get inspired and motivated by them.

But does that mean I have to do the same things they did..? Don't I have a brain? Can't I think ? Do I not have the ability to analyze/know what suits me....Ok lets assume I went wrong or failed(according to the so called set parameters of being Successful..and fast settling in life).... with my choice.......Are they not lessons....learned... Ok lets say "In few situation we can't afford to take chances..."..But does that mean we should just.....copy and be a photocopy..... If this happens everywhere in the world.......i fear that there will be a world that will come to an end because there are no new ideas or innovations and no creativity..........

Glad is not happening...and people are still innovative,creative,independent and at the same time responsible and can work as a team for a good cause

May 13 - The day an era has come to an end.

May 13 - The day I can't and shouldn't forget in my life because this is the day i came to know that a great soul and an inspiring lady and my mentor is no more there physically in this world. Her life is an inspiration to so many of us in our family and especially to me.She is my Grand Mom(Rama Tulasamma) aged 86. 1923-2009.

I am where i am because of her. She supported me in many ways and she was always there for me.

I wish I had the chance to talk with her before she departed this world.

Few last moments of me with her...

Finished one Chapter and Opening a new chapter in my book of Life

Graduated from Masters in Computer Science. Break for a while to go college physically,attend classes...but i guess i wouldn't stop learning...but this time the method of learning might change. Practical experiences might be the lessons..
