Farhan Akhtars’ Workout Routine for Sculpting 6 packs to Play Milkha Singh

Farhan Akhtars' Workout Routine for Sculpting 6 packs to Play Milkha SinghI’m a big fan of Farhan Akhtar and I enjoy watching his movies as I come out learning so many important lessons of life. These days I’m on 90 Days challenge to sculpt 6 packs,  its been 75 days and so far I can see 4 packs are coming out and I guess it’ll take 3 more months to see all 6 packs.

I came across this article of Farhan Akhtar on how he got 6 packs, I would like to share with you all as I find it very informative and motivational if you want to sculpt 6 packs for yourself.

2,500 AB CRUNCHES A DAY TO PLAY MILKHA (by Ankit Ajmera, The Times of India)

Farhan on how he managed to look like The Flying Sikh

Farhan Akhtar has come a long way from 2004, when he had just directed Lakshya, and would walk out of Mumbai’s Otters Club in exactly 15 minutes after a haphazard weight training session. “I was never fond of it,”he smiles.It was after he met trainer Samir Jaura that he realized he has an active metabolism, and his body is ectomorphic or lean.“If I don’t work out, I lose weight,” he says.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra told Jaura to sculpt Akhtar’s body like Brad Pitt’s in Fight Club. “The idea was to get an athletic body, not the bulky Ghajini-type,”says Jaura.Akhtar started training in November 2011, beginning with a one-hour-a-day regimen, four days a week. It gradually went up to six hours a day,six days per week.Here,Farhan describes how he became Milkha Singh.

THE WORKOUT PLAN
I sport two looks in the film — the bulky soldier and the lean runner.I stand 5’9”tall and weigh 66 kilos. To bulk up, I had to gain an additional eight kilos. And later, I lost 10 kilos to weigh 64 kg for the second look.

WHAT IT TOOK:I had to first correct my sleeping pattern. No late-night parties. I was in bed by 10 pm and up by 5.30 am. I trained for two hours, three times a day.

ATHLETIC TRAINING: At 6.30 am, I’d start my athletic training with coach Melwyn Crasto at Priyadarshini Park in Mumbai. It involved one-and-a-half hours of sprints and flexibility exercises. Because running has a neuromuscular component, I was taught drills that break the monotony of running and help coordinate body movements. Referred to as the ABC of running, these drills isolated the phases of the gait cycle — knee lift, upper leg motion, and pushoff — and helped me become a near professional runner. The ‘A’s involve exercises that work on the knee drive, ‘B’s on leg extension and ‘C’s helped with pull through. When Milkha ran, his right hand would bend inwards. Crasto helped me get it right. By the end of each session, I would complete 12 sprints of 100 metres.

FUNCTIONAL TRAINING: After resting for six hours,it was time for functional training (working against gravity with your body weight;climbing up a rope or hanging from a height) and abdominal exercises for 1.5 hours. This ensured flexibility. I’d pack in 12 sets of ab crunches. One set included 200 repetitions, which means I did 2,500 repetitions in all.

WEIGHT TRAINING: At 6 pm, I’d spend two hours doing a combination of Hypertrophy Strength Training (HST) and Tabata. This was for the first six months. HST induces the fastest muscle growth over an extended period without the use of steroids. It involves increasing the load on muscles consistently with every session. This ups activity within a muscle cell, making it sensitive to incoming nutrients for repair. Every day, I’d work on my legs, back, then chest, shoulders,biceps and triceps.This was a 12-week programme. As the weights kept getting heavier, the reps decreased.

After three months, I moved to Tabata, a high intensity workout in which I had to pull off maximum repetitions in a given period. We combined two muscle groups every day — chest-biceps, back-triceps, and shoulders-legs. I did eight-10 sets (each lasting 90 seconds) per body part.

In the last six months, when I was supposed to slim down, I moved to endurance training with weights. We combined two muscle groups in a day and did 15 sets of 100 reps per body part. The weights remained consistent throughout all sets. I finished training in December 2012. I was left with just 5% body fat.

WHAT I ATE
I gave up rice, chapati and bread. Instead, I got my carbs from fruits and vegetables.

To bulk up for Look 1 (soldier), I was having 3,500 calories a day and five litres of water. My diet remained the same for Look 2 (runner),but the portions became smaller and I was down to 1800 calories.

I would have an omelette of six egg whites and mushrooms with orange juice for breakfast.The food was bland; I couldn’t have salt because the water retention would make me look puffy.Two hours later, I’d have a bowl of oatmeal with half a glass of skimmed milk.Half an hour later, I’d follow it up with naryal paani.

Lunch was sauted broccoli, asparagus, beans, baby cabbage and pak choy (250 gms) along with grilled chicken (150 gms),all made in olive oil.I’d have a protein shake after two hours. Berries were the only fruits I could eat as they are low in glycemic index and provide the right antioxidants. Every evening, I’d have a bowl of boiled chana or moong salad with cucumber,tomatoes and a low-calorie dressing.

Dinner was the same as lunch, but basa or salmon replaced the chicken. Before going to bed, I’d have a protein shake.

AND I CRAVED
I love ice cream and gulab jamuns. My only cheat while training was a big glass of Dilli lassi every 15 days.

I SUGGEST
You set a goal. It will push you towards what you want to achieve.

How To Get Motivated and Keep Moving Forward To Achieve Your Goals?

motivation - keep moving forward

Even the most motivated of us — you, me, Tony Robbins (Famous Motivational Speaker) — can feel unmotivated at times. In fact, sometimes we get into such a slump that even thinking about making positive changes seems too difficult.

But it’s not hopeless: with some small steps, baby ones in fact, you can get started down the road to positive change.

Yes, I know, it seems impossible at times. You don’t feel like doing anything. I’ve been there, and in fact I still feel that way from time to time. You’re not alone. But I’ve learned a few ways to break out of a slump, and we’ll take a look at those today.

I would like to admit that many times myself get demotivated in my life t
o do anything, I feel all my life energy has drained, sometimes I struggle to motivate myself to exercise — and I would like to use that as an example of how to break out of the slump.

When I fall out of exercise, due to illness or laziness or injury or disruption from things going on in my life, it’s hard to get started again. I don’t even feel like thinking about it, sometimes. But I’ve always found a way to break out of that slump, and here are some things I’ve learned that have helped:

  1. One Goal. Whenever I’ve been in a slump, I’ve discovered that it’s often because I have too much going on in my life. I’m trying to do too much. And it sucks out all my energy and motivation. It’s probably the most common mistake that one can make: if you try to take on too much, try to accomplish too many goals at once. You cannot maintain energy and focus (the two most important things in accomplishing a goal) if you are trying to do two or more goals at once. It’s simply not possible — I’ve tried it many times and always failed, I learnt this in last 5 months 13 days  like I tried to take –
    • Challenge of 6 packs in 90 days,
    • Solve Rubik’s Cube in 1 minute (my best time is 2.04 min),
    • Give one public speech every week (Toastmasters),
    • Read career book daily,
    • Improve reading speed to 1200 words per minute (So that I can read more books in less time),
    • Learn Bangla language in 90 days,
    • Learn Classical Bangla music,
    • Learn Guitar in 90 days,
    • Complete all the certifications of Digital marketing,
    • Write one blog post daily,
    • Start Wedding Photography,
    • Learn how to make investment and trading,
    • Read one book in 1 week,
    • Meditate daily,
    • Jog daily,
    • Practice Pranic healing daily and list goes on and on,
    • But You have to choose one goal, for now, and focus on it completely. I know, that’s hard. Still, I speak from experience. You can always do your other goals when you’ve accomplished your One Goal and my current goal is 6 packs in 90 days (I’ll share my journey of 6 Packs challenge in other blog post and what are the important lessons of life I learnt in this process).
  2. Find inspiration. Inspiration, for me, comes from others who have achieved what I want to achieve, or who are currently doing it. I read other blogs, books, and best is watch motivational Youtube videos, I Google my goal, and read success stories.
  3. Get excited. This sounds obvious, but most people don’t think about it much: if you want to break out of a slump, get yourself excited about a goal. But how can you do that when you don’t feel motivated? Well, it starts with inspiration from others (see above), but you have to take that excitement and build on it. For me, I’ve learned that by talking to my friends about it, and to others, and reading as much about it as possible, and visualizing what it would be like to be successful (seeing the benefits of the goal in my head), I get excited about a goal. Once I’ve done that, it’s just a matter of carrying that energy forward and keeping it going.
  4. Build anticipation. This will sound hard, and many people will skip this tip. But it really works. It helped me quit many bad habits and unproductive daily patterns after many failed attempts (I’ll write about how to get out of your daily negative or unproductive patterns which is the main reason of why your life sucks in another mail). If you find inspiration and want to do a goal, don’t start right away. Many of us will get excited and want to start today. That’s a mistake. Set a date in the future — a week or two, or even a month — and make that your Start Date. Mark it on the calendar. Get excited about that date. Make it the most important date in your life. In the meantime, start writing out a plan. And do some of the steps below. Because by delaying your start, you are building anticipation, and increasing your focus and energy for your goal. (Like before starting 6 packs challenge I was anticipating it for one whole month)
  5. Post your goal. Print out your goal in big words. Make your goal just a few words long, like a mantra (“Exercise 15 mins. Daily”), and post it up on your wall or refrigerator. Post it at home and work. Put it on your computer desktop. You want to have big reminders about your goal, to keep your focus and keep your excitement going. A picture of your goal (like a model with sexy abs, for example) also helps.
  6. Commit publicly. None of us likes to look bad in front of others. We will go the extra mile to do something we’ve said publicly. For example, when I took 6 packs challenge I announced it in my office group mail and invited people to join and take this challenge with me, So that I couldn’t back down, and even though my motivation came and went, I stuck with it and it is still going on, I’m going GYM daily without any fail or excuse. Now, you don’t have to commit to your office group mail (My case was different as its a small company with family like culture), but you can do it with friends and family and close co-workers , and you can do it on your blog if you have one or post it on your Facebook wall. And hold yourself accountable — don’t just commit once, but commit to giving progress updates to everyone every week or so.
  7. Think about it daily. If you think about your goal every day, it is much more likely to become true. To this end, posting the goal on your wall or computer desktop (as mentioned above) helps a lot. Sending yourself daily reminders also helps. And if you can commit to doing one small thing to further your goal (even just 5 minutes) every single day, your goal will almost certainly come true.
  8. Get support. It’s hard to accomplish something alone. When I decided to take challenge of 6 packs, I invited my friends and colleagues to take this challenge with me, many of them joined but later their motivation level dried off but there were few who actually stick to me, now I have one friend who daily goes Gym with me, he is like a great support to me, who motivates me to hit the gym floor daily without any fail, he encourages me to raise my level every day and try harder and harder till I finally get there. Find your support network, either in the real world or online, or both.
  9. Realize that there’s an ebb and flow. Motivation is not a constant thing that is always there for you. It comes and goes, and comes and goes again, like the tide. But realize that while it may go away, it doesn’t do so permanently. It will come back. Just stick it out and wait for that motivation to come back. In the meantime, read about your goal (see below), ask for help (see below), and do some of the other things listed here until your motivation comes back.
  10. Stick with it. Whatever you do, don’t give up. Even if you aren’t feeling any motivation today, or this week, don’t give up. Again, that motivation will come back. Think of your goal as a long journey, and your slump is just a little bump in the road. You can’t give up with every little bump. Stay with it for the long term, ride out the ebbs and surf on the flows, and you’ll get there.
  11. Start small. Really small. If you are having a hard time getting started, it may be because you’re thinking too big. If you want to exercise, for example, you may be thinking that you have to do these intense workouts 5 days a week. No — instead, do small, tiny, baby steps. Just do 5 minutes of exercise. I know, that sounds wimpy. But it works. Commit to 5 minutes of exercise for one week. You may want to do more, but just stick to 5 minutes. It’s so easy, you can’t fail. Do it at the same time, every day. Just some crunches, 2 pushups, and some jogging in place. Once you’ve done 5 minutes a day for a week, increase it to 10, and stick with that for a week. In a month, you’ll be doing 15-20. Want to wake up early? Don’t think about waking at 5 a.m. Instead, think about waking 10 minutes earlier for a week. That’s all. Once you’ve done that, wake 10 minutes earlier than that. Baby steps.
  12. Build on small successes. Again, if you start small for a week, you’re going to be successful. You can’t fail if you start with something ridiculously easy. Who can’t exercise for 5 minutes? (If that’s you, I apologize.) And you’ll feel successful, and good about yourself. Take that successful feeling and build on it, with another baby step. Add 2-3 minutes to your exercise routine, for example. With each step (and each step should last about a week), you will feel even more successful. Make each step really, really small, and you won’t fail. After a couple of months, your tiny steps will add up to a lot of progress and a lot of success.
  13. Read about it daily. When I lose motivation, I just read a book or blog about my goal. It inspires me and reinvigorates me. For some reason, reading helps motivate and focus you on whatever you’re reading about. So read about your goal every day, if you can, especially when you’re not feeling motivated.
  14. Call for help when your motivation ebbs. Having trouble? Ask for help. Email me. Join an online forum. Get a partner to join you. Call your mom. It doesn’t matter who, just tell them your problems, and talking about it will help. Ask them for advice. Ask them to help you overcome your slump. It works.
  15. Think about the benefits, not the difficulties. One common problem is that we think about how hard something is. Exercise sounds so hard! Just thinking about it makes you tired. But instead of thinking about how hard something is, think about what you will get out of it. For example, instead of thinking about how tiring exercise can be, focus on how good you’ll feel when you’re done, and how you’ll be healthier and slimmer over the long run. The benefits of something will help energize you.
  16. Zap your negative thoughts; replace them with positive ones. Along those lines, it’s important to start monitoring your thoughts. Recognize negative self-talk, which is really what’s causing your slump. Just spend a few days becoming aware of every negative thought. Then, after a few days, try zapping those negative thoughts like a bug, and then replacing them with a corresponding positive thought. Zap, “This is too hard!” and replace it with, “I can do this! If that wimp Rana can do it, so can I!” It sounds corny, but it works. Really.

Forgiveness – The Pure Happiness

Today I gave following speech at Toastmasters International Speech Contest (Club level), I didn’t won but I felt very good after giving it.

Tragic Story

On October 2, 2006 a terrible incidence of violence occurred in an Amish village in Pennsylvania. A young milk delivery truck driver entered an isolated one-room school carrying a loaded rifle. He ordered the teacher and the male pupils to leave.

Eleven young girls, the oldest 13, were lined up for killing. The oldest girl, in order to gain time for the others, asked to be shot first. She was shot and killed. Her 11 years old sister offered to be second. She too was shot. The gunman shot all of them killing five on the spot and injuring the rest. Then he shot and killed himself.

The girls’ families and the entire Amish community felt shocked and hurt.

But they responded in a most extraordinary manner. They reasoned: ‘all deaths are God’s will. So we grieve but gracefully accept His will. The killer too is dead. His family too, like us, grieves. All of us, therefore, are victims of violence.

So, few days after the tragedy, the whole Amish community went to the killer’s house to offer food and condolences to his grieving family.

The world was incredulous that such forgiveness could be offered so quickly for such a heinous crime.

Question

If I ask you a question – What is one of the most difficult things to do for a normal human being? Some of us may say climbing Mount Everest or skydiving from 15000 feet or counting your hairs or licking your own elbow, I believe there is one thing which is more difficult than climbing Mount Everest or counting your hairs which is to forgive someone who has caused you deep pain and who has hurt you badly? If we try, we might one day climb Mount Everest but forgiving someone who has caused deep pain sometimes seems pretty impossible. We simply can’t forget, we simply cannot let it go. How can we let it go without returning same amount of suffering and pain that we have got?

Anger and Hatred Never go

We get hurt, our heart get filled with anger and hatred, resentment and bitterness and this feeling of anger and hatred never go away, pain becomes insurmountable, unforgettable, unforgivable. It carries away with us wherever we go. And day by day it keep increases and when we on keep holding our grudges, harboring resentments, and nursing unhealed wounds we get more hurt with every passing day and sometimes just by thinking about that person or incident we feel extreme pain and hatred.

Slow Poison

We carry our pain throughout our life but we fail to realize that our anger and hatred is not hurting the person who has caused it, our anger and hatred is not making the person realize how bad we are hurt but the only person is who is hurting with our pain and hatred is us, Anger and hatred is like slow poison which will kill you slowly from inside and it will never end if we do not get it out of our system.

Forgiveness Virtue of Braves

Many times we feel that if we forgive a person without making it even or forgive him without giving him same amount of pain that we are going through, then people will take us as week hearted, people may think that we are coward and afraid, but let me tell you, week people can never forgive; it takes considerable amount of courage to forgive someone who has given you pain, forgiveness is the virtue of strong hearted people.

Liberating Gift

If we can find forgiveness in our hearts for those who have caused us hurt and injury, we will rise to a higher level of self-esteem and well-being. Some recent studies show that people who are taught to forgive become “less angry, more hopeful, less depressed, less anxious and less stressed,” which leads to greater physical well-being. Another of these studies concludes “that forgiveness … is a liberating gift that people can give to themselves.”

Better Alternative

It’s hard to forgive, but forgiveness is something you do for yourself. I agree that forgiving those who has hurt us is not easy, but it is much better alternative than choosing to live with the pain of bitterness and resentment, with the pain of anger and hatred.  Forgiveness does more for you than anyone else because it liberates you from negativity and lets you move forward. Forgiving might not make anger totally dissolve but it will give you the freedom of knowing you are so much more.

Pure Happiness

Pure happiness is achieved when you forgive a person who has done you harm; you detoxify yourself of all negative energy, free your mind, and purify your soul and body.

Perhaps that’s why Martin Luther said: “Forgiveness is pure happiness.”

Inch by Inch

lifting weights - inch by inch

Today at Gym, I did one small experiment to know at what point I give up and what will happen if I persist and won’t give up. Generally I lift light weights I never lift heavy weights but today I put weights which were like double than my usual daily lifts and I kept increasing levels by adding more weights with each sets, After 1-2-3 sets I started feeling heat and pain, when I reached 3rd set I felt extreme pain, my mind started telling me that this is it, this is my limit, I can’t go further. I felt this is the point where I need to give up, but then I keep pumping with one thought that “just one more time, one more time, one last time” and actually I completed my 4th set and then 5th set. Each second my mind was telling me to give up but I replied just one last time I found that no matter what our mind tells if we keep moving forward lift by lift or Inch by Inch, one lift at a time, one inch at a time, we are capable of lifting more than we ever imagines, we are capable of doing much more than we generally believe we can.

Only thing we need to do is decide where we want to reach and keep moving forward no matter what our past experience and belief system tells us about our limitations or what is possible for us or what is impossible for us, If we keep moving forward we may find our new better self.

32 and Single

I came 2nd runner up at Area Level Humorous speech Toastmasters contest with following speech which I changed around 90% from the last humorous speech which was at club level. It was a great learning experience humorous speech is all about timing, expressions and how you deliver.

PS: Please note that whatever written is not 100% accurate as I added many things to make it humorous like age I’m not 32 yet etc, enjoy the speech.

Title : 32 and Single

“Everyone I know is getting married or pregnant, I’m getting just AWESOME”

Contest Chair, Fellow Toastmasters and Esteemed guest.

I was sitting in my office cubicle, peacefully working, when she came one of my colleagues came to me and asked “Rajesh, what’s the matter with you? All of a sudden you have turned all prim and proper… you come to office in formal wear. Are you trying to impress someone? The new girls, I think”. I said “No, there is no particular reason to wear formals, I was fed up wearing casuals so, I decided to shift to formals” then she said “No, this can’t be the reason, you are trying to hit on someone, who is it? just tell me?” I said “No I’m not trying to impress anyone, I’m wearing formals just like that…please trust me (and go away)” and She said “You are now 32 and you don’t have girlfriend, and still not trying to hit on anyone…… is everything okay….?” I shouted “No…….there is no problem” then she said are you sure? I said “are you sure…. Are you sure? What do you mean by are you sure…. what makes you think so…..I’m single by choice and if I ever get a chance then I will show my best manly performance”

Ever since I turned 32, it seems like whole world has turned after me to sell off my single bed and buy double bed. Consider this my dad travelled all the way from Nepal to Kolkata, just to check if everything is okay with me, after I turned down 15th marriage proposal sent by him. He said “Son, I’m coming to Kolkata” I said “you have got some work?” He said it’s been a while, I just want to spent time with you” (I want to spent time with you…..) I’m never 32 and he never talked like that, You know how Army man are like, rough and tough, no display of emotions are all. He came and He stayed 10 days with me, He checked my entire phone contact list, latest dialed history and received call history, messages everything, you can imagine how worried he is that I’m still single as all the sons and daughters of our family tree is now married and many of them have children who call me and says uncle-uncle when you come back to Nepal in this Puja holidays get me an Android phone with 5 mega pixel camera and 1 GB RAM.

Ever since I turned 32 It’s not just my parents, my relatives and my dear friends, but whole world has turned after me to rent 2BHK apartment, now days wherever I go I hear only 3 rhetorical questions – whether I’m travelling, shopping, eating food in restaurant, now days even our company clients has started asking same 3 rhetorical questions, which starts with – Are you married? I humbly reply NO, and then I get 2nd inevitable question “Do you have a girl friend?” I again humbly reply NO, then I get 3rd ….one word…. deadly question… any idea…..what that could be? Well the 3rd question is “WHY?” they want to know why I’m still single and don’t have any girlfriend. I generally don’t answer to that question and just give a broad SMILE.. like I’m very happy and I’m so glad that you reminded me about my situation that I’m getting old and soon if I don’t find any girl then it’ll be too late, I don’t reply to that 3rd question but sometimes I really-really want to reply that 3rd question, with all my heart, I want to say –

I don’t have girlfriend cause I want to

  1. Save time.
  2. Sleep well.
  3. Don’t want to bother about missed call.
  4. Don’t want to worry about how I look.
  5. I don’t want any SMS in middle of night.
  6. I don’t want to recharge my phone daily.
  7. And I am really happy being single.

But the fact is these are all excuses of my mind to fool my heart that “all is well… all is well… there is nothing wrong in being single, you are the man and you are a very happy man” but the problem is I can no longer fool my heart, as I can now clearly see my grey hairs.. no matter how often I pluck them, they just grow up quickly, when I Pluck one grey hair, 3 of them replace it, so I thought I better not to touch them; I can no longer fool my heart as I can clearly see my receding hair lines, now I can’t even cover them with long hairs as when I keep long hair they starts falling, I have this short hair style not by choice but by compulsion.

The situation is very much similar to the story of my search of girl for getting married as after turning down 15h marriage proposal I realized that I’m single not by choice but because I don’t have any choice as all the eligible girls in Nepal gets married by the age of 23 or max by 25, and those who are left and still single, are the one who makes you feel that you better stay single no matter you are 32 or 35 and keep saying all is well… all is well.. you are the man.

I’m Single by Choice, not by Compulsion

Last Tuesday I contested for ‘Toastmasters Humorous Speech Contest‘ (Club level) please check my speech, I came 1st runner up and I’m competing for area level too, if you can give some input to improve it would be great as it is very raw and has many scope of improvement, I sent it to many veteran Toastmasters for mentoring but they are all very busy –

I Love You !

Please check my Toastmasters Project 6 speech, Title ‘I Love You’ –

I was in 3rd class, it was a beautiful bright sunny day, my usual normal school day, everything was going just as it used to be, all those long boring classes after classes then in our surprise we got a good news that our next subject teacher was not taking our class, Very next moment we found our self on seventh sky, we all started shouting, hooting and chattering but our class prefect was very strict she said “If any of you make any noise I’ll give your names to our class teacher and you know what will happen then”, suddenly we all got terrified with the thought of facing that terror lady (our Class teacher) and then we decided to settle down and started whispering in ear,  In next 5 minutes all got busy with their some creative works; some were making paper planes, some were drawing on their desk and many other works. Then to my wonder I found a guy sitting next to my seat was drawing flowers on arm of a girl sitting next to him. I felt urge of sharing that incidence with my 3 best friends then immediately I got up and went to their seats and in mischievous tone I whispered in their ear; “Look.. Look.. What they are doing ;-)”. Continue reading

My Dream Job

Please check my Project 5 Speech at Toastmasters. Title “My Dream Job”

“Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same. ”

When I was 3 years old I saw my 1st movie it had such a great impression on me that I decided what I wanted to be in my life and I wanted to be a ‘HERO’ and my idol was Mithun Chakroborty and I wanted to dance like him, I wanted to fight like him, I wanted to kick like him, I’m not sure but I must have thought if I become hero then I’ll be very happy.

As I grew older I found I can’t even impress girl next door and fight guy next door to her, forget becoming a Hero, I got disappointed then I came to know about a term ‘ASTRONAUT’, now I wanted to be an Astronaut, I wanted to get into my Rocket and travel through space, I wanted to go to Moon and I wanted to reach out for the stars. Every night during load shedding I used to gaze at sky and see amazing stars, constellations and bright Moon, I used to think one day I’ll be there and I’ll be very happy.
