“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
― Bessie Anderson Stanley
Life can be like a night time story or it can be a turn gone wrong .but never ever the uncertainty associated with the life should bog you down. Take risks, fly high and get up when you fall. #Start a new life begins with breaking the shackles of your own old life ,be limitless and working that extra hour, arguing over that extra good and breaking that one useless limit .
My idea of a new life was when I started teaching the children of migratory” Banjara “ community .The community who moved from one place to another and make pottery or idols for a living are one of the most disadvantaged community .Children are devoid of any formal education ,they live in filthy places and I saw them making makeshift huts in slum areas adjoining medical college. I once visited their huts for buying a ganesha idol and there at that moment itself the idea of my new life came up.I decided to teach those kids in the evening and in the spare time. It was tough,very tough. No one was willing to send their kids. Well we made a tent ,put up a blackboard ,I bought some basic books and the teaching began .My family was dead against it as going into that filthy area after dark where men intoxicated with alcohol roamed around was dangerous. But I wanted to do it ,because I saw the zeal of children to learn ,their hunger for knowledge even after a taxing day of work .
I convinced each and every family of this community to send the girls to study but could not succeed. Never ever to loose hope ,our classes continued braving weather ,heat ,rains and hooligans.more and more kids came ,some volunteers joined and the kids were not only learning alphabets ,they were doing arithmetic ,were painting and then a day came when they cleared an open school examination.
I am sharing this rough but fulfilling journey of mine because however tough the journey may seem but when you reach the destination ,the pain and difficulties seem meaningless.
