Eight years of stubbornness to give birth to their roti-maker

Two years after quitting her job to focus on inventing a machine she hoped would change the lives of flatbread lovers everywhere, Ms Pranoti Nagarkar Israni and her husband, then in their 20s, were nearly broke.

“We were almost going negative in our bank accounts,” she said. That was in 2010.

Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew

“Thirty years ago, my colleagues, younger and more dreamy eyed, settled the words of our pledge. We did not focus our minds on our navels or we would have missed the rainbow in the sky. We pursued that rainbow and that was how we came to build today’s Singapore.”

“For the young, let me tell you the sky has turned brighter. There’s a glorious rainbow that beckons those with the spirit of adventure. And there are rich findings at the end of the rainbow. To the young and to the not-so-old, I say, look at that horizon, follow that rainbow, go ride it.”

“This country belongs to all of us. We made this country from nothing, from mud-flats… Over 100 years ago, this was a mud-flat. Today, this is a modern city. Ten years from now, this will be a metropolis. Never fear!”

“You begin your journey not knowing where it will take you. You have plans, you have dreams, but every now and again you have to take uncharted roads, face impassable mountains, cross treacherous rivers, be blocked by landslides and earthquakes. That’s the way my life has been.”

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.

R.I.P. Robin Williams.  He is my favorite actor.  “Patch Adams” was one of the first few movies I watched which made me fall in love with cinema.
