It’s a Wonderful Life:Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?

Batman Begins: 

1. And why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up again.
2. To manipulate the fears of others, you must first learn to master your own.
3. It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you. 

Once Upon a Time in Mumbai: 

1. How big you shall become is dependent on how big your heart is. 
2. “Whose Destiny is the same are bound to meet up in the path”
3. “A man’s greatest weakness is always more powerful than his greatest strength”
4. “When a man becomes immensely passionate about something, that passion becomes his true identity

3 Idiots:

2. Need for revamping conventional educational system.
3. The difference between knowledge and its application.

1. Importance of taking responsibility E.g. a. For transforming the nation (fighting against the corrupt system), b. For your actions (killing the corrupt defense minister.)

Finding Nemo:

1. Step out of your safe zone: Like Nemo, you sometimes have to go beyond your safe zone to really find yourself. Be brave.

2. Even in the murkiest water, you are not alone.

3. Just keep swimming. Like Dory says in Finding Nemo, Just keep swimming. Don’t stop, don’t give up. You might not always know where you’re headed, and sometimes it will feel like you’re heading in the wrong direction, but if you stop swimming, you’ll never get there, you’ll never get anywhere. Just keep swimming.

Harry Potter – It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

No  man is perfect. Throughout the 7 books, Harry Potter has taught me that  it is our decisions that decide our character and not our abilities.  Lord Voldemort is possibly the most able Wizard in the world but that didn’t mean he is the greatest.

Moneyball – We’ve got to think differently.

Moneyball taught me that success can be achieved even under impossible situations. All you need to do is think differently. If there is one way to do one thing, then there are other easier and quirkier ways to do the same thing.

Into the Wild – The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences.

I’m not going to abandon my family and walk into the wilderness of Alaska but Into the Wild has taught me that human spirit can only be fulfilled through new experiences.

The Lord of the Rings – All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you 

LOTR has taught me to do things with what I have. You can whine, you can complain and you can cry but your hand has already been dealt. There is no going back. But, you can control things that happen from this moment.

The Prestige – Man’s reach exceeds his imagination!

The Prestige has taught me that Man and Mankind in itself will never be satisfied with itself. The power of human obsession has done some terrible things to this world and it the same obsession that has enabled Man to exceed even his levels of imagination.

Iron Man – Heroes Aren’t Born, They’re Built

Quite a weird choice one might think. But, Iron Man has taught me never to underestimate the power and reach of Technology.

And hey, who doesn’t like Iron Man?


Lesson 1: Naked Wife
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.

After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks,…

“Who was that?” “It was Bob the next door neighbor,” she replies. “Great!” the husband says, “Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Lesson 2:
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish” “Me first! Me first!” says the administration clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.” Poof! She’s gone. “Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii,relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.” Poof! He’s gone. “OK, you’re up,” the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”

Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say.

Lesson 3:
A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said,”Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest removed his hand. But,changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest apologized “Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.” Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”

Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Lesson 4:
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him,”Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?” The crow answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.

…A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.

Lesson 5: Power of Charisma
A turkey was chatting with a bull “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.

Lesson 6:
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Moral of the story:
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend
3. And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut !
