RIP Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011) passed away on 5th October, 2011.Half the world heard the sad news on the devices he was instrumental in making.

The enigma only recently started interesting me enough to find more about him.As a matter of fact, after his resignation as the CEO of Apple Inc. did i start reading up on him.I read as much as i could lay my hands on and i was completely in awe.

Very few people come along who can truthfully say they made a difference to the whole world.The genius the world just lost was one of them.Some were a fan of the devices he made, some of his values and some, like me, of the enigma himself.



I salute his passion which remained undiluted despite the ups and downs.He stuck to what he loved and didn't give it up.Nothing could stop him from doing what he loved and did best.Be it the rarest form of pancreatic cancer or getting fired from the company he co-founded.



Mr. Steve Jobs, you have left behind a legacy.Not only in the form of a technological renaissance, also in the form of your values.If even some of us can stay as hungry and as foolish as you, only then can the world hope to fill up the void that you have left behind.

Following the quest of looking for what i love to do, i bid goodbye to your physical form, for, you shall be with us for a long time to come in our thoughts.

RIP.
