A good friend and counsellor makes an unobtrusive entry into your life opening up for you new vistas of creation and wonder. His enthusiasm to celebrate life to the fullest is infectious and you are overwhelmed by it. This in a few words Amarnath is to me. You cannot possess him for he belongs to everyone, both the young and old, the high-spirited and the depressed. His strength lies in the power of his being an ambivert. Amarnath’s potential is his guidance by the Spirit of Wisdom and his unwavering keenness to make disciples who look within themselves to help others look beyond for the good, beautiful and true.

I have enjoyed listening to Antony’s talks. He is very engaging. He speaks of a true way of living life to the fullest with inspiring pieces of practical niceties. He speaks with an air of confidence. He knows his subject matter very well and it is reflected in his presentation. He helps people to live life with the most important and true perspective. ‘I have enjoyed your positive series (15 Ways to increase the Joy of Living), because that is how I am wired myself. It is much appreciated to hear it all from him. He has a lovely voice to listen to, and a very productive way to inspire others’.
‘Steel wrapped in velvet’ is the first image coming to my mind when I think of Amarnath.
Strong yet gentle; Relentless in challenging you yet caring deeply; Pushing you beyond your limits, yet asking you to rest, to pause when you think you should keep on.
Through leadership training, counselling sessions or friendly sharing Amarnath is one of the persons who has told me the hardest truth and has confronted me as very few have.
The paradoxes of his accompaniment’s style is that while part of me hurt badly, his unwavering trust in my capacity to raise to the challenges keeps me hopeful, energized, focussed.
What touches me the most of Amarnath is his commitment to walk with me without time limit. And mind me, he is not a presence which fosters dependency…
To me, his way of being at my side has empowered me to fly on my own. He just makes sure that if you start doubting yourself, the peculiar gaze he has for you will invariably make you believe you can!.

In a nut shell I could say, Amaranth is an amusing, sympathetic and interesting person.
He amuses everyone whom he meets, with his innate talents and skills. Ingenuity in thinking, creativity in action, innovation in ideas, distinctiveness in performance, uniqueness in articulation are some of the notable feathers in his crown of talents. His farsighted leadership is always accompanied by versatility, lateral thinking, pro-activeness, life-orientedness, and success. He is an optimistic speaker who can help others to realise one's own worth, find meaning in one's life and walk with confidence.
The amiable, genial and charitable characters of his make him sympathetic. He is very approachable as he possesses kindness, compassion and magnanimity as his valued assets. His comprehension of life and perception of the world drives him to be a life oriented person and makes him understand people from different walks of life.
Finally he is a very interesting person as he is pregnant with the vision of healing and transforming the world with love. His enthusiastic and energetic words and deeds always spell revitalization of the world with love. As he is intellectually competent, emotionally matured and socially conscious he can make ripples of joyful change in all who encounter him.
