"It is your life, It is your legacy.. Make it Large" I write in my HuffingtonPost India blog

Death may be the great leveller. But so are the 3Ms - marriage, motherhood and medical ailments. They compel you to think, touch something deep within, bring up questions, provide answers and burst your bubbles. And in that one moment, you ponder and wonder about life and legacy. For a vast majority of us, these moments centre on the birth of children or grandchildren, our kids touching specific milestones (say turn 18, getting married, etc), the loss of our parents, spouse or loved ones. For some of us, it may be our age (say 40, 50 or 60), or retirement from active work.

No matter what the trigger is, at some point in life most of us tend to think about the answer to the question, "What is my personal legacy?" Usually, the first response tends to be around financial assets. After all, money does make the world go round. But, many times I wonder, are we all not endowed with several other assets in life? Assets that we want to hand down to future generations. Ever thought about what can be an integral part of your legacy? Here are my views.

1) Knowledge
2) Wisdom of Life
3) Good Habits
4) Self-taught skills
5) Personal Creations
6) Ideas
7) Children
8) Personal Wealth
9) Social Media Legacy
