Anger is the biggest evil in this world, and I firmly believe in this line. Being an entrepreneur, I feel you need to maintain your cool. Managing anger is a tedious task and that’s the reason why a recent follower of Yoga and Meditation.
People think that I have anger issues but in reality, that is the misconception about me. I am fun loving, happy go lucky guy.
