“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” – Reinhold Niebuhr
The word Sandeep derives from Sanskrit — Sana, which means eternal and Deep which means light. So the meaning of the name is most accurately translated into Eternal Light. Daily chanting of Vedic mantras reveals the illuminated path — the path of positive mental attitude. It gives him the strength, courage, and determination to see the world, as a whole. And, he journeys on this illuminated path, where there is nothing but pure bliss and happiness. However, he does have a tendency of flying off the handle but he follows Aristotle’s pure thought: “anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy”.
“Poets are all who love, who feel great truths,
And, tell them; and the truth of truths is Love” — P J Bailey
Even though Sandeep means Eternal Light, this light can be characterized by the glow that illuminates or the glare that obscures. This depends on who is looking at the light — a friend or a foe. Nevertheless, it is said that everything is extraordinary in the right light, at the right time, to the right degree. Somehow, in Life’s Journey, with the help of his SOUL, he became a creative writer (poet). He’s talented and embraces a very deep loving nature.
“Love is the most terrible, and also the most generous of the passions; it is the only one which includes in its dreams the happiness of someone else” – Alphonse Karr
Sandeep N. Tripathi is known as a man of great integrity and character. He is well versed in life’s joys and sorrows. He has always reached out to help others — whenever, wherever and however possible. People confide in him and rely on his judgment. He’s a great observer; and, an extremely good listener.
“I am not concerned that I have no place
I am concerned how I may fit myself for one
I am not concerned that I am not known
I seek to be worthy to be known” — Confucius
Aside from being a bright individual, Sandeep is a highly versatile individual. Every experience, no matter how great or small, has molded him into the current state of being. He possesses the ability to solve problems more realistically and methodically while having the potential to excel in anything (almost). He is a quick thinker, quick-witted and comprehends life’s challenges wondrously. He connects the dots, by making use of his intelligence, to solve life’s mysteries. It’s a learning process exemplified by a change. John F Kennedy said – “change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future”.
“For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it” – Ivan Panin
