Randy Pausch's Last Lecture

Last week I seen few of my friends changed there Gtalk status to "R.I.P. Raundy Pausch", initially I thought he may be some pop star or a sportsmen, and did not bothered much.

The buzz keep on going on, and accidentally I came across his Last Lecture video on youtube. His life really mesmerized me.

Randy worked as a professor in Carnegie Mellon Univ and was diagonised with pancreatic cancer. He delivered his "Last Lecture " at CMU, one month after he found he only had 6 months to live.Last lecture's are ongoing series of lectures at CMU where top academics are asked to think deeply about what matters to them, and then give a hypothetical "final talk," i.e., "what wisdom would you try to impart to the world if you knew it was your last chance?" Randy Spoke about "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams and how he worked to achieve his childhood dreams.

If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it or read the gist here

Randy's story touched me deeply, he accepted fate and was extremely brave to face the reality, in his 1hour 16 mnts talk you will never see fear in his eyes,words, body language, he teached about "living" and living and having fun.
