This book, My Experiments with Innovation, is all about the innovative journey and experiences. The book attempts to put together some habits and lifestyles that will enable us to inculcate innovativeness in the areas with possibilities and contribute to our lives and to the lives of those we are surrounded by. Further, the book shares ideas, events and happenings that helped me create PASSION for achieving my GOALS in life. Hence, it is about this PASSION, learning the PROCESS to achieve those goals, and having PATIENCE in your journey to achieve these goals.
The book was written with an aim to give the reader a memorable experience of learning. There has been an attempt to bring about the experiences of my life in a manner that the readers are able to relate with them in order to make the learning happen. My life’s purpose is to provide clean drinking water to the underprivileged children. I am thankful to the readers who have purchased the book to contribute towards this Purpose of my life. 50% of the book’s proceeds will be donated to install water purifiers in schools.
My Experiments with Innovation is dedication to my father Lieut Cmdr (Retd.) Gurbux Singh and daughter Sifti Kaur, and to all the daughters of the world. Daughters are special and because it is a dedication to my little girl, it is very close to my heart. The book is being launched on my father birthday. This is a gift from a son to his father.
Below is a poem that I wrote for Sifti on her 10th birthday. Six months before she was to turn 10, she had started saying: “Dad, this year is special. I am going to change to a two-digit personality.”
In order to make her 10th birthday special, and the year cherished, I wrote this poem for her. I wanted to make it even special, so I decided to surprise her in her class, by reciting it in front of her batchmates.
I worked with her English teacher, Ms. Littlefield at Flower Mound, Texas and she arranged for me to come to the class for the same. Ms. Littlefield loved the idea and she made it happen. I would also like to think that she liked the affinity that I share with my daughter. Moreover, delivering such a message to kids at this tender age is fruitful, as it stays for life. The way the poem was delivered, the entire class loved it. For weeks, the kids would approach Sifti and ask when her father is coming to read his next poem. You’d find that poem in the book.
