10 Happy Moments by Aakriti Kochhar Sachdeva

10 Happy Moments of My Life 1. The first time I held my baby sister in my arms.  I was happy I had someone I could bully! 2. The first time I saw the Eiffel Tour twinkle.  There is nothing about Paris that didn’t fascinate me: the wine, the fashion, the culture, the gastronomy and the people (especially the men!) Then first time I saw the Eiffel tour was like a long awaited dream come true! The better part, I sponsored my own trip! 3. When I brought my first puppy home and my life has never been the same! My dogs have taught me to love selflessly and to always look where I put my foot (if I don’t, its usually in dog poo) 4. When I entered Disneyland! The first thing on my bucket list was going to Disneyland since I could probably spell ‘Disneyland’! I was longing to go to the happiest and most magical place on Earth! Going there with the love of my life made this experience even better. 5. When I met my childhood friend after many years over drinks and realized distance didn’t ch

5 Things I Learned in my 20s

I was young, wild and carefree in my 20s and had one motto in life – experience everything at least once in my life with no regret and irrespective of its consequences and repercussions. As I inch closer to turning 30 next year in February, the world went into a lockdown and it gave me ample amount of time for self-reflection, soul-searching and making lifestyle changes to condition my mind as to how I want to shape the next 50yrs of my future life. The following is a list of 5 things/lessons that I learned in my 20s from life:- 1. Restrict your Social Circle You can have a hundred fair-weather friends but once you identify your core set of five to ten people whom I refer to as “permanents”, that’s enough to sustain a happy and fulfilled life. Of course! Lesser the friends, lesser is the drama. Oh! I’m a lucky man, To count on both hands, The ones I love, Some folks just have one, Yeah, others they got none, Stay with me, Let’s just breathe 2. It is okay to FAIL!

When I met GOD - Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar at MCA, Bandra My semester break was on from college and I was just whiling away time when I received a call from my friend and he said, "Come to Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) right now, Sachin is here". I couldn't believe my ears, I picked up a plain white t-shirt to get his signature and headed to Bandra. We waited for almost 4hrs and in the process ended up meeting Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh and Ashish Nehra in the locker room. But like any other Indian, we were hopeful to see Sachin Tendulkar that day because such opportunities don't come by every day. The moment arrived, he stepped out of the indoor practice nets and around 50 people crowded him. I managed to hand over my t-shirt to him and he happily signed. The Indian Cricket Team was leaving for Sri Lanka I think for the 2011 Cricket World Cup and we begged him to click a picture with us. The Little Master obliged and as I stood right next to him, I took the o
