It is success everywhere - Do I call it luck or hardwork?

I started blogging during one of the dull periods in my life, but now things have completely changed on a positive note right from my friends, to the way my parents treat me, my college life, studies, extra curicular activities and jus' everything around me looks rosy.

There have been time when I have so wanted atleast one aspect of my life to bring me happiness but I'm so happy with the way things around me has changed ..

Life is jus' speeding with so many activities, everything I try doing ends on a positive note :) Well, why did I actually come up with this post??

Yea, Me and my friend Dhruv had sent in a concept for developing a software product to be used in Mobile phones to the tech. fest(Shaastra '08) to be held in IIT Madras (one of the premier schools for Engineering in India) next month. And our entry has been selected :) We have been given the opportunity to attend the Entrepreneurship Workshop along with 48 other lucky people who got selected :).

This workshop had limited number of seats (50 to be precise) and I'm so so so happy to say we are among the lucky 50. The concepts we came up with was a flash of an idea to both of us and later we interlinked both to come up with the software concept.And 6hours of intese work for documenting and at the stroke of 12 at mid night on Sept 5th (due date and time) we sent in out entry. And here we are finally selected :) Do I call this luck or hardwork??

Hi Shalini,

Glad to see your project being selected..All the best !!

Regarding your query about Luck and Hard work, iam pretty sure you must be knowing the answer yourself. Yet will quote Thomas Jefferson's quote:

“I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.”

Keep Charging !!
