RIP Steve Jobs....

5th October 2011, it was a usual wednesday. In the evening, i opened my facebook account for checking the daily updates and notifications. On my home page, first few status updates were "RIP Steve Jobs". I scrolled down to find the same status update by some more people in my facebook friend list. I scrolled down further to find more quotes and messages on Steve Jobs....
Well, honestly speaking, i have never been a gadget freak. What i knew about Apple was it sells products like laptops, iphones, ipads, ipods, etc like a lot of other companies do. I also knew of Steve Jobs but succinctly. When i saw so many "Steve Jobs" status updates, i was intrigued. I thought there must be something very spectacular about the man whose life and death have been such a tremendous source of inspiration and admiration for millions and millions of people across the globe. Hence, the following day i opened the newspaper and read each and every article on Steve Jobs. There's a saying, "Behind every successful man, there is a woman". I would modify it a bit. Behind every successful man, there is an inspiring story. Today, we all know what a spectacular man Steve Jobs was. His determination to follow his heart, his vision, his innovations, his "think different" motto and his famous Stanford speech will continue to inspire his successors at Apple and many others for whom he was a role model. Hope he passed on his technical acumen as a legacy to his successor. The world will always remember Steve Jobs as a great visionary. May his soul rest in peace.....
P.S. How can i forget to say... "Stay hungry, Stay foolish"!!
