"A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves."
- Anonymous

On this day when so many people, from political junkies to casual observers, are focused on changes in Washington DC, our thoughts naturally turned to what all these events are fundamentally about - leadership. So many of those in the public arena today embody the boisterous, combative, egocentric style of leadership. As his friends tell us over and over, Anuj was just the opposite. He was a true leader because he led by example. Anuj focused not on himself but rather on ensuring that those around him realized their true potential. He believed in people and made sure they knew that. This gave them the confidence to succeed, thereby allowing Anuj to calmly and quietly lead them to accomplish the goal at hand, whether it was small or large.

Given the innumerable stories related to us about Anuj's leadership, we suspect this will be just the first of many posts on this subject.

Morning of Nov.9Th. I got up this morning little early. I don't know why. Sitting in the room start reading a book.After a while I heard the same sweet & mild voice of my beloved Anuj Wrist Watch. Thinking why it happened, nothing is special today.After 5 minute, same sweet & soft voice started ringing in my ears again.Stressing on my mind ,I realize that it is birthday of his unfortunate mother. Instead of calling me from Philadelphia,his M.B.A. Business School, this morning, I heard his Wrist Watch, saying happy birthday mom.

We all love him & miss him so much

GOOD SOULS do not have a long tenure on earth. They come and go back as soon as their goal in this life is achieved.
We pray God to give strength to all of us to bear such irrepairable loss to us.
