How I Said #KhudKoKarBuland and Healed My Life

February 26, 2016 , 2 Comments

Life is made of moments- high and low. When the high moments give us the joy to live, why do we allow low moments to take that joy away? Our lives will have its own share of disappointments and adversities.  When adversity strikes, do not say “Why Me” but say “Try me” like I said years ago.

I am sorry if you think I am unfair using a personal experience but my intention is sole to encourage the perpetually. It is my humble attempt to educate people and tell them, how our strength, planning and perseverance are only tested when we face disappointment and adversity. And how, we should not mull about the spilled milk but strive to overcome them, step by step. And if, a young, timid, shy girl like me from a small town can do this, what stops you?

Let this anecdote from Ishita [name changed] inspire you and people around.

#KhudKoKarBuland and make all the difference

Ishita was a young, happy go lucky daughter of Khurana household. She loved adventure sports and dancing. There was a strong adventure streak beneath her shy appearance. She loved all things adventures including cycling over steep terrains, dancing like no one is watching, playing in rains, swimming and more. She was a restless girl who refused to sit still for minutes.

She was on her way to achieving long awaited merits in sports when she found herself lying hopelessly on a hospital bed learning about a fatal accident that took away her limb[s].

She had seen numerous Hindi movies where protagonists in similar situation wake up and cry. She did not want to be a stereotyped. She rather opened her eyes and asked her doctors if she will be able to walk ever again. Together they created a step-by-step plan to achieve this goal. Every milestone, when reached, brought its own reward.

It was difficult but with great help from her parents, she stood back on her feet. She focussed on her education and meritocracy. Her adversities did not stopped post the accident but every day was and still posed a new challenge to her.

Apparently, adversities made her stronger. Today Ishita is highly educated, quite an independent [physically and financially] woman who is living life on her own. Her “raring to go” attitude and her zest to be self-reliant, bailed her on her own merits.

It is not that handicap did not limit her life. They did and often in many unexplainable ways. Nevertheless, she did not let prejudices colour her soul but became a living embodiment of courage and self-respect.

Well, Ishita does not call her heroic material. She rather believes that it is a way of life. Life never claims to be easy but does allow you to sail through.

So never forget to- Pray, Persevere and Plan your life. 

Moral of the Story- #KhudKoKarBuland and Finance Your Dreams
