Shanthi Kiran, Interview #167
Where you live: Andhra Pradesh, India
What you do as a vocation or avocation?
Sales Manager in Insurance sector by profession; writing, blogging, reading Bible and other books of interest constitute my hobbies.
Your two favorite books:
The Bible and Wikinomics by Don Tapscott & Anthony D. Williams. I personally believe Mass Collaboration and Open Source are two concepts that are going to change the way the businesses are run for forever.
Your two favorite songs:
That's a tough ask but 'Paradise' by Coldplay and 'The Little Drummer Boy' are two among the favorites.
Why you are interested in spirituality?
I believe there is nothing bigger and better thing in this world than to live a life that is pleasing to God.
Your favorite quote:
"What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?" - The Bible
Your favorite web sites:
Google, Ted and Wikipedia. Ted is the website I am particularly found of these days. It is amazing to see numerous ideas shared on one single platform, which can inspire you and have the power to change attitudes, lives and the world ultimately.
Jesus is my hero because he led a life that is 'perfect' and taught others about how to live a life of perfection.
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
I want to become an Evangelist one day (by God's will) and I want to learn and do what ever it takes to become one.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?" In a quiet and lonely room.
