Someone gave this to me one fine morning and later explained to me - why?
Here is the answer for my why?
"It's about 'mumkin hai'. I hope somewhere - in the future - if you are feeling down and about - if you look at it - I hope you understand the toil of a year behind it and take comfort in the fact that - an old guy can surmount obstacles - toh you can pull yourself out of any hole that you are in. I hope it gives you a little bit of 'light' when you are sitting in the darkness. Bass"
Even a little bit of light can do wonders - make a person choose a very different path than what they would have chosen originally. The very fact that someone thought so much, explained the thought behind it speaks volumes. I will keep it close by, always, whenever I feel like I am done, reached or maybe nearing the end, I will look at it and remember that I still need to keep going, there will be light waiting for me ahead. I will remember the one year of grit, determination & discipline and let it remind me that nothing comes easy and if it is getting difficult now, it will be worth it in the end. Keep pushing.
I wish & hope that someday I will be able to do the same for you - give you a little light when you are sitting in the darkness - in some way or the other.
