What's your call?

by Shweta Birla on 21st January, 2011 at 6:12 PM CEST

School is the perfect environment to make mistakes and learn from them: it’s OK not to be perfect! If you think you are always right, tame down that ego. In the hustle-bustle of life, we keep following others because of the habit of thinking “what would they think of me if I follow it according to my way?” 

When I was in school, I came across an old woman, bending to the half of her height, with a man at her side, giving her a hand to walk. I was wondering how cruel a teacher is to call her just to make small complaints about her grandson / granddaughter. But then, on the second instance, I came to know that the old lady had come to give exams; she was pursuing her further studies. Just think, if she would have thought about her age as a restricting factor to continue studies further, then she wouldn’t have been at the stage of inspiring others. She was actually following her heart.

If Thomas Alva Edison would have taken his failures of many experiments so seriously, and would have left the experiment in between, then he would not have invented the light bulb, influencing life around the world.

For this week we would love to know, what challenges would you like to take in order to follow your heart? What’s your call?

Dear Shweta... its a grt inspirating article by you... I really want to appreciate you for this... Now the challenge that I would like to take in order to follow my heart is to take some time from busy schedule of life and work for humanity.... It is my dream to make every child in my country to have food, education n shelter... It is the challenge for me because when we become professionals... we hardly get time to work for society and humanity.... But I would like to take this challenge and work for humanity and society for better growth of the country and want to make sure that no child in my country is without food, education and shelter....

It’s really a “motivating” article ...heartily appreciate your thoughts Shweta...

Well, I am proud to belong to a nation where millions of characters lived for a single principle or for their inert call. I proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance along with “To follow insight for an individual”

I want to work and sweat for a simple but great vision which I learnt from my country and my religion, sacrifice yourself for human basic needs like love, self-acceptance, self-respect and above all self-reverence for unto the last man of the universe.
