Another Someone who is #madeofgreat

If think deeply, for me, apart from my father if there is a second someone who is #madeofgreat it has to be none other than my uncle. I learnt the art of patience from my uncle. He is a very cool man. I never saw him agitated or shouting at anybody. In childhood when I forgot tables and committed the same mistake again and again I got scolding from mother, father but never from uncle. His patience was even talked about in whole family. When everybody shouted on delayed gas connection, everybody at home got restless and shouted at poor infrastructure and corrupt Government but uncle kept his faith strong on the power of patience.

I’ll narrate one story here today where you’ll be amazed by my uncle’s patience and salute my reason for considering him as someone undeniably #madeofgreat. Summer heat was getting out of control and we went for a pilgrimage trip. We mean- me, mother, father, uncle and aunt. We went to a Shiva temple. Our darshan was uneventful and all fared as per assumption. But while returning weather turned violent and nothing much we could do to return back home. In those days we were not having our own vehicle. Buses from there to our hometown got cancelled due to cats and dogs rain. But still, some pilgrims managed to book few ambassadors to return back home. They agreed to share the expense of cabs among themselves. Like everybody else my parents and aunt was happy too and nodded their heads for the same. After all what could be better than a same day return in a wicked summer tiring day! But somehow uncle didn't like the idea and he explained other three adults that there’s no harm in patiently waiting for the good weather as the temple had adjoining lodging facilities for the tourists. Everyone disagreed but seeing the raging lightning cutting through the horizon they had to sick back to uncle’s plan. Next day we came to know that the pool en route had broken down and two taxis packed with pilgrims fell from such height that they couldn't even get a chance to reach hospital alive. Well you may call it the power of intuition but I call it the boon of patience. My uncle left a lasting impression on me and so I consider him as someone who is #madeofgreat!

Lionel Messi is a legend who has carved his name in history books with total dedication to the game, simple living and improvisation which is seen with each game he plays. The association of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi as their Brand Ambassador will definitely give an edge to the Tata group over its competitors solely because the brand Ambassador also holds the same reputation of not letting his fans down ever, like Tata Motors who have given the best to the world over the decades.

Both believe in excelling in whatever they do and set examples for others to follow.
