Rahul Yadav - The real Yoddha

Last week was a little too sad. 
At times you know and feel that we all are merely helpless souls.

Rahul Yadav - an ex student of SIMS, Pune , a fellow batch mate & a blogger, lost his third battle against cancer. While its loss to near and dear ones, in his hard battle against life and death he left everyone around him & more, stronger and braver.

While he was in this, he started a community based group called Yoddhas.

Rahul was suffering from multiple myloma - a cancer of plasma cells.  

In this battle he was an inspiration to everyone. Being diagnosed with such a rare disease he still managed to fight and hold on. Its times like these I have hardly anything to say or share. Be it best doctors, best treatments, best wishes, we all are simply too less in power in comparison to the almighty above us. While he has left a void which never can be filled, together on behalf of everyone, wish and pray that wherever he is, may he be showered with all the blessings and love.

Grab the 'E' in 'Ego 'and let it 'Go '

There is something 'special ' in 'rains' that makes everyone smile: for different reasons though . 

Long back, may be towards the high school we learnt and studied the meaning of the word: ego. Your ego is your conscious mind, the part of your identity that you consider your "self." If you say someone has "a big ego," then you are saying he is too full of himself.

Today, after moving on a long path with mixed road conditions, I do value and understand what is it being ' full of oneself '.

Yes, it is a big thing when one is successful, has achieved a lot in a short time frame and more so has all the tick marks in life which are considered to be mandatory, one tends' to be a little in the air  .  

Now, flip the sides and see people around you. 

Your parents. In the whole world you can never be, even remotely, try to be ahead of them, better than them or even to close to them. Yet, parents listen to all your big and small needs and stay modest all through this journey ~ Admire. Learn.

Your teachers. Across all the educational journeys that you may have undertaken, our teachers are way ahead of God let apart you. They have seen those little kids grow big and do big things yet you remain the same student for them. Humility is what they always had .

Friends and peers - They accept you for the way you are and are unbiased towards you. Being honest is a trait you can borrow from them . 

And in the working life look around you. Your supervisory chain, leaders all across are not only calm and patient people but have utmost dignity and respect for everyone who works with them. Patience. Leadership.

And yet, after being met, stayed and interacted with all of the above we all have a little bit of  'E' going on for us.   

Why do we have this 'E' when one day things will fall down, nothing is going to stay forever and life will eventually move out and write you out.

I am not a spiritual or a motivational speaker but ‘love’ is a great medicine. Love is the only emotion. Fear is an illusion.Be loving and spread the love.

Complaining keeps us locked in negativity, right? I mean, think about it. Who wants to hang out with someone who complains all the time? No one. So why complain even to yourself? 

This is the source from which self-disgust, self-hatred, and self-sabotage springs—and the ego loves it, this self-imposed separation.

And lastly,just be grateful. 

BTW- Its raining outside and its so very beautiful . Like me in case you also love listening to songs , this one is pretty cool - Listen to this song
