A short synopsis of the plot -
The first story has been picked up from the warzone of Mahabharatha. The fight between the Pandava and Kauravas. The fight between dharma and adharma.
Bhishma had the boon of death by will. However, his death was critical for achieving Dharma. So in the war zone of Mahabharata, Arjun who sought the guidance of Krishna - his coach, killed his grandfather Bhishma because he chose righteousness and dharma over convenience and adharma respectively
1. When you need a knife, a thousand spoons will not help. The death of Bhishma became inevitable by the mere presence of a character called Shikhachandi. The respective character did not fight but just by being there on the warzone was able to accelerate the entire warshow. Shikarchandi represents that team member who carries a unique advantage that can't be logically traced to any effort. But the advantage of this character is irrefutable.
2. Put aside ur ego & ask for help. It is rare we find a right mentor and if you find 1 do not leave them. If u do not have, pray to the universe to give.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
