>the 40’s

>this was on economic times .. this is abt the ad gurus who are in their 40’s and they were asked abt what are the changes they feel … i’ll put the Intersting parts here …

not much. Of course, I do miss being able to get up and run three kilometres without my joints aching. As for the gains, it’s about 15 kg in the mid-section Rahul Akerkar, director, DeGustibus Hotels

I don’t think I have changed post-40. I also miss some hair and the black in the hair that’s left. In life, I have gained through experience, through the ups and downs. I gained a wife in my 40s, I gained a lot of new friends and I also gained a few kilos. The first three are precious to me. It’s the fourth that I am trying to get rid of. Piyush Pandey, executive chairman & national creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather Ltd

Post-40, I have become a little calmer, less moody. Being more experienced about life, today I can handle situations which I could not earlier.A year ago, when I turned 40, I also reached my creative best. That is, I wrote my first play, Class of 84. And then the next, Pune Highway. The only thing I wish for is more energy, probably like that of a 25-year-old. Rahul da Cunha, director, da Cunha Communications

When I was 20-something, I used to run after pretty lasses. But, after achieving a certain status, women start looking at you, differently though. It’s a Catch-22 situation. Today, I have a family and an image. I’m no longer footloose and fancy free. Earlier, I used to take my body for granted. I would never get tired, wouldn’t eat properly and would run fast. And yes, I have gained a little bit of wisdom, great insights and tremendous sensitivity towards people and their responses. Prahlad Kakkar, producer-director, Genesis Film Production

but i like what this dude has to say

Though I’m over 40, I feel I have the energy levels of a 25-year-old, the open mindedness of a 35-year-old, coupled with the maturity of a 45-year-old! I don’t miss out on anything. But, if I had to reflect on the years gone by, it would be the small luxuries of just upping and getting out of town or taking a few days off.Also, most people slow down after 40, but no such luck with me. I feel you actually begin to enjoy life and get more out of it as you mature. My daughter has grown up and I really enjoy my relationship and rapport with her. I also enjoy spending time alone with my wife. I think age teaches patience and the joys of perfection. Frankly, nothing rattles me any more.Ronnie Screwvala, CEO, UTV
