I had gone to hear some music at the Shankarlal Music Festival and there I met Smt Veena Shroff, a person who has studied traditional hairstyles and ornaments. When she told me that she was in her ’70s, I asked her what was the secret of her looking at least 20 years younger! She replied that she never thought ill of anyone. Not that she did not know that people could be very bad and cruel but she would always try to bring out the best in them by thinking very positively about those whom she came in contact with. There is the good and the bad in us all. Our greatness lies in being able to elicit the best in human beings whom we meet in our journey through life.
