बहु रत्ना वसुंधरा “Bahu ratna vasundhara” – our land is full of jewels

January 30, 2011

Whenever I come across some unusual human beings & their amazing feats, I am reminded of the saying – बहु रत्ना वसुंधरा “Bahu ratna vasundhara” – Any land is full of some hidden jewels

I was filled with awe when I read about Yiannis Kouros who had once ran more than 300 KMs in 24 hours !!!

And who does not get impressed when they read about Fauja Singh – a marathoner of 100 years!?

Another recent news about Fitness guru Jack LaLanne‘s death at age of 96 made me aware of his legendary acts depicting human strength & possibilities – to name a few are – At the age of 40, he swam the length of the Golden Gate Bridge (1.7 mile) underwater; at 43, he did a thousand pushups in 23 minutes; at 60, he swam from Alcatraz Island to San Francisco while handcuffed, shackled and towing a boat. At 70, he towed 70 boats with 70 people for a mile and a half, also while handcuffed and shackled. “I can’t die,” LaLanne would say. “It would ruin my image.” 🙂

Who/what inspires you? When did you feel ‘impossible is nothing’? Whom you would like to be considered in बहु रत्ना वसुंधरा (human jewels of the planet)?
