A very happy Diwali to all of you out there. May this Diwali bring lots of happiness, success, peace and prosperity.
And I take this opportunity to present to you a YouTube video where I talk about Superstitions and the need to follow your heart, and pursue your passion. Do check it out and lemme know what you think, because, it’s absolutely relatable to all of us and it’s something each of us have gone through.
P.S. I’m a bit worked up and my pace is too fast. There’s noise in the background too. But don’t give up on me yet, will you?
To you, that makes mistakes. To you that cries in fear, in pain, in agony. To you that reaches out for help. To you that makes the choices and stays by them. To you, that sticks to the choices that’s been made for you. To you, that dreams. To you, that doesn’t want what the rest of the world does. To you, that chases what nobody else does. To you, that perseveres and pursues.
To you that has flaws. To you that is impulsive. To you that repents. To you that has awkward conversations. To you that jumps in happiness. To you that falls and fails. To you that picks yourself up and tries again. To you that hesitates. To you that fumbles. To you that isn’t perfect.
To you that has a bone of contention about every micron you see. To you that commits a faux pas every living second.
To you that wakes up each day to make a difference. To you that faces disappointments. To you, that believes. To you that inspires.
The universe, looks up to you.
Nobody else can be you – your blemishes, your blunders, your choices – They make you, you.
You, are the star of your life.
Let not the society pull the strings of our lives, of our destinies,
Let not our race, religion, caste or creed decide who we are, or define our indefinable capacities,
Let not opinions biased, tarnish our hopes, our ability to try,
Let not doubts unascertained, limit our will to fly,
Let not stopgaps and pitfalls deter what we choose to pursue,
Let nothing stop us from living our dreams, from becoming what we aspire to.
Commit, to only what you want to, to only what you can,
Pursue what you must, stick to what you plan,
The pitfalls and the stopgaps, of which you fear,
Only come to show when your focus is unclear,
Set your destination right,
The goals to reach there, kept always in sight,
Discover your zenith,
For success, has never been a myth!
With the crests and troughs in the curve called life,
There’s nothing uniform, not even the strife,
Keep going, give whatever it takes to reach where you want,
There’s nothing in the world that achieve, you can’t,
Look beyond your flaws, look beyond your scars,
For you are meant to reach the stars!
Dream of a cloudless sky with abundance of sunlight,
Dream of starry moments in the twilight,
Dream of how you would want to live,
Dream of what you would want to give,
Dream where reality wouldn’t take you,
Dream of what you would want to undo,
Dream while asleep, dream when awake,
Dream of something you wouldn’t wanna fake,
Dream with hope, dream without fear,
Because, dreams just don’t have boundaries far or near,
Dreams ain’t just your imagination at play,
Dreams are just your brain’s way of saving your day!
She always fought her battles, a fighter,
She won over her demons like no other,
She was a warrior, a crusader,
Who never bowed down to failure,
Succumb, yet, she did, to cancer,
But knew not, until she lived, fear!
