Dreamer in me.. Seeking Answers!! Believer in me.. Finding them!! :)

The Blessing

“Why am i Still Living? What Wrong did i do to deserve such a Life?” asked Abhimanyu to his most loved Deity Lord Ganesha. Abhimanyu, A 9 year old Boy who now lived with his Maternal Grandparents in Nasik after losing his Entire Family when he was just 3, including his Parents to the infamous Earthquake in Bhuj, Gujarat. He miraculously was found unscathed while the Bodies of the Dead were being recovered from the Debris.

Thereafter His Custody was given to his Maternal Grandparents, who Loved him and tried to Raise him well, But He had undergone a lot of Trauma for a 9 Yr. Old Child and Depression, Fear of Acceptance and in the Process was losing out on the Ability to comprehend things. He would often stay away from Peers and had little or No Real Friends but for His Favourite Deity: Lord Ganesha

So Everyday, He would visit the Ganesha Temple and talk for hours with the Shrine. He would complain about his Life and how he felt like a Burden to his Ailing Grandparents who lived with Bare Minimum Earnings but yet try to Give the Best of Everything to him. Lord Ganesha would simply smile back at him, or so he thought and often this resulted in him pleading and yelling at the Lord.

This day was different though, After he returned back from the Temple. He helped his Grandma make the flour for the Chapati, Ate with them, Drank the Milk and went to Sleep. But he kept tossing and turning and was unable to sleep, So he got up to have some Water. There he saw Lord Ganesha holding a Glass of Water for him. Ganesha said “Drink this my Friend!” Abhimanyu took the Glass from him and Drank the same. The Water tasted different as if soaked in Sweet nectar.

Abhimanyu said “I Hope this isn’t Sweet Poison to take me with you! I can’t go right now, Don’t want to leave my Nana-Naani at this age like this. I want to Do something in Life for them, before you take me away.” Ganesh ji smiled back and said “I know! Am not here to take you, You are my Dearest Friend and have lots to do in this Life for yourself, Your Family and The Society at Large. I just came to speak to you. One on One.. Man to Man talk”

Abhimanyu laughingly said “Ganesha you are only Half a Man and i am just 10 (Was his Birthday). So the Man to Man talk doesn’t really fit.  But Yeah, i would love to talk to you.” So Ganesha held his hand and took him outside the House where a Bright Red Bajaj Chetak was waiting for them. Lord Ganesha took the Handle and asked Abhimanyu to jump on to the back seat. Then Ganesh ji’s Scooter flew and  took him back in time to Bhuj just before the Earthquake and showed him a Visual of How His Parents saw the Ground shake and they vehemently ran to him, put him in a trunk with a Small Hole and took him to the Open Garden of their home as mortar collapsed and gave the Trunk a full blown push before they collapsed under the Debris.

Abhimanyu’s whole world spun in front of his eyes and he realized how much love and affection he was showered to when he was a Child. Ganesh ji asked “You really think you have a Bad Life? Come with me.” Then Ganesh ji took Abhimanyu to another Distant place where Abhimanyu saw Young Orphans being drugged, abused and Organs being removed and forced to become beggars by Mafia syndicates. Abhimanyu asked “You’ve opened my Eyes, My Lord but Why do you allow Butcherism by Mortals?” Ganesh ji replied “I Don’t play a Role in anyone’s Karma. The Consequences of Every Action is a Reaction. Their Karmic score will determine their Life ahead.”

Now Ganesh ji parked his Scooter atop a Tree in a nearby Forest and told Abhimanyu to ask Questions which he was carrying in his Heart. He would like to answer them all today.  Abhimanyu fell short of Words initially but then asked Ganesh ji “What Wrong did my Parents and Family do to deserve such a Death and why am i still Living? What is the Purpose of My Life?” Ganesh ji replied “Karma as i said is the Answer my friend, Not just of this Life but some are a Part of One’s Past Life too. You are living because you died at a Tender age in your Last Life when you tried saving a Baby Elephant from being Eaten alive by a herd of Crocodiles. The Mother Elephant was crying for Help as She was caught in a Deep Swamp and you heard it.” The Whole scene played out in front of them where a Young Boy jumped at the Head of a Crocodile and Threw Stones at them so the Baby Elephant got a Free side and he stomped his way out of the herd of Crocodiles but The Child fell in the Water in the Process and got Eaten by the Crocodiles.

Ganesh ji said Life is all about Karma and You are my Friend and Chosen one, Channel your Energy towards the Greater Good for People and see how this Life that you sometimes Curse would become the Most Beautiful thing in the World. Abhimanyu said “Will you Guide me?” Ganesh ji replied “Always!”

Abhimanyu that Night at a tender age found his Purpose in Life and a Friend for Life: Lord Ganesha.

If Your Friend has done these Few things for you in this Zindagi.. Never Let Them GO!

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”~ Lisa Kleypas, Blue Eyed Devil

If Your Friend/ Philosopher Or Guide does any or all of these things.. Never Ever Let them go:

  • Calming Influence : Even a Well Balanced person occasionally loses their cool. We all have the ability at times to become very emotional and tense owing to sometimes intrinsic reasons and sometimes because of what’s going on around us and we cant quite control it. If you’re feeling anxiety, rage, sadness or just heavy stress, a person who can see you struggling and knows how to COMFORT you is a definite keeper
  • Understanding Your Humour: Laughter is a quintessential part of life, not only as a delightful cherry-on-top during good times, but also as a way of coping when things are hard or going badly. If you have someone in your life who understands your particular brand of HUMOUR be it Sarcasm, Rhetoric or Burn filled and can add, share, compliment and have fun in the laughter with you, hold on tight!
  • Common Interests/Hobbies: Everyone needs some HOBBIES in their life. The Fun and leisure activities we do outside of work and career allow us to unwind and release stress and tensions that build up from the pressures of the daily grind.When your Friend can be a part of these passions and activities and enjoy them right along with you, everybody wins.
  • Mutual Respect: Respect for each other is the trivial part of any good bond and relationship. It is built by honesty, reliability and trust. If both can truly RESPECT each other as people, even in the heat of a difficult argument or stubborn disagreement, the relationship will be Strong and almost unbreakable.
  • Accountability: In a Friendship, One should always do their best to support the other and embrace whatever their Friend chooses to do, but sometimes the best and healthiest way to support someone is to be HONEST with them and call a spade.. A Spade. A True Friend would never lie to you simply to spare your feelings or avoid confrontation. If someone really loves you, they’ll call you on your Possible Mistakes, and if you really love them back, you should be receptive to their criticism and know that it comes from True caring and concern.

am writing about Jug in my life for the #DearZindagi activity at BlogAdda. The Person surely knows who he is.. 😉
