just a sunshine....

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "LIGHT"


Diwali.. The festival of light.. The evening of bringing light, hope and meaning to our light. Its 28 Oct again and while I am enjoying my favorite cup of tea after a hectic day; something inside me stirs.. And I contemplate.. Light in my life.. The moment of sunshine.

Yes it was 28th Oct of year 2011.. I have just completed my PG in psychology and was wondering about my career. I was gainfully employed.. But that sense of direction.. The meaning in life was missing. And then it happened as if  pre-decided.. As a divine blessing.. As an answer to my call. 

I heartfully thank my FB friend Ahmed who told me about this opening.. A post of coordinator in the IGNOU study center.. The sunshine in my life. I humbly grabbed the opportunity and there was no looking back. The job was demanding.. Taking lectures on weekends.. Administrative job on weekdays.. Just like principal of a school. But as they say "everything happens for a reason" it was a job that brought out the best of me.. Like I was in a state of Flow.. 


I pioneered many initiatives like preparing assignments to be given..organising practical classes.. Conducting practical exams.. Psychology was a new subject at IGNOU back then.. and hence very challenging.. But all the challenges became the step stones to my destiny.. My cherished goal.. A CEO of a company providing psychological services in and around Delhi & NCR.



Life gives us small gifts and that have the capacity to make your life upside down.. just like a small mud lamp can destroy all darkness.. that ray of sunshine removed all uncertainty and filled my life with purpose and joy. My life changed.. With just a sunshine. 


Happy Deepawali Friends!!!!!

  11. सुन्दर और सकारात्मक सोच से भरी रचना
    इस बार की दीपवाली पे, मैं भी कुछ ऐसा करने जा रहा हूँ जो मेरा भाग्य बदल सकता हैं
    अपनी उबाऊ नौकरी से इस्तीफा दे
    नॉएडा में न्यूज़ चैनल में मार्केटिंग जॉब की खोज में
    जो मैं हमेशा से चाहता था पर हालात की बेड़ियाँ तोड़ न पाया था
    इस दीपवाली के उजाले ने हिम्मत जगाई

    कुछ नया होगा तो जीत होगी
    हार से तो अपना रिश्ता पुराना हैं

      Ye hue na bat..
      Waise hume humesha hi wahi krna chahiye jo hum krna chahte hai aur krne ke liye bane hai, tabhi hum santusht reh skte hai aur shanti purvak jiwan jee sakte hai
      Apko apke aane wale jiwan ke liye dheron shubhkamnaye
