Humbled by Limca

Limca Book of Records recognized my achievement. I am the youngest, in India, to have four post graduate degrees. I completed four PG degrees by the age of 27 while the previous record was held by Deepak Bansal at 29 years.

विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद्याति पात्रताम्
पात्रत्वाद्धनमाप्नोति धनाद्धर्मं ततः सुखम्

vidyA dadAti vinayaM, vinayAdyAti pAtratAM |
pAtratvAddhanamApnoti, dhanAddharmaM tataH sukhaM || 5 ||

[(true/complete) knowledge gives discipline, from discipline comes worthiness, from worthiness one gets wealth, from wealth (one does) good deeds, from that (comes) joy]

Am humbled by the response. Let me start by thanking God Almighty for his blessing. My Mom and Dad deserve a special mention at this juncture for their love, perseverance and motivation all through... Thanks for driving the importance of being well read and humble. But for you.. this means nothing. My friends who are J and making others J, thank you. For all the wonderful institutes, luminous faculty, authors, books and so on.. thank you. As I said, am humbled.

@New Indian Express:

Why am I doing this? Here is an answer from Sanskrit “Subhashithani”

Na chor haryyam, cha na raj haryyam Na bhratri bhajyam, na bharkari Vyaye krte vardhate ave nityam Vidya dhan sarva dhan pradhanam

Not so philosophical though, I just read for fun.
