Some Links from the Net

Hirotada Ototake is a Japanese who has strode his way up againts all odds. He was born without arms and legs, but that did not prevent him from realising his dreams. This bestselling author of his autobiography Noone's Perfect recently hogged the limeligh by starting to teach at a school in Japan. Check the detail story here.

Talking about biography, I was moved by The Washington Post former executive editor Benjamin Bradlee's interview taken by Shekhar Gupta, Editor in Chief of Indian Express. I look forward to reading Bradlee's A Good Life which according to Gupta is every journalist's bible. Happy reading!

I've read about him. Thanks for the referral- he is such an inspiration. Today, I also heard about a paralyzed scientist who is finally going for space travel- I mean he would be in zero gravity. Sure- they will keep on inspiring a number of people in days to come.

Thanks for sharing it. Like Salik said, people like Steve Hawkins are great motivation to all.
