" If you leave her in a desert with nobody around(no competition around), she wouldn't survive. She wouldn't learn anything."

“I believe it’s just a psychological phenomenon. It doesn’t actually exist. If my potential is going to be judged only with respect to what the next person is capable of, I could be mediocre all my life....."
-T.M Krishna about competition in his interview.

Living life, career and learning to ignore the competition.
