life... work...

There's nothing of any importance in life—except how well you do your work. Nothing. Only that. Whatever else you are, will come from that. It's the only measure of human value. All the codes of ethics they'll try to ram down your throat are just so much paper money put out by swindlers to fleece people of their virtues. The code of competence is the only system of morality that's on a gold standard.


PS: excerpt from Atlas Shrugged #2

Atlas Shrugged had shaken me to the core, and I can still feel that sense of ecstasy when I first discovered Ayn Rand in 1983.

Yes Mr.Barun,

every line and every word in her writing is a sparkle! If we didn't read her writings in our life, that means, we missed something great in our life!

We are trying to develop a way to promote Atlas Shrugged and the ideas of Ayn Rand in India. Would like to invite you to join us in this effort, and would greatly appreciate any suggestion you might have. Please visit our web sites
