Through the blog, I aim to articulate my thoughts in an attempt to connect with other crazy dreamers(I believe we all are one) out there.
If you were to ask my parents, they would say am nothing but a crazy dreamer, a rebel who is more idealist than a realist; In my opinion, I am a simple person who is trying to do what he loves. I believe we all have the power to create the world of our dreams(Or shape the real one as close as possible to it) & I aim to be the change I wish to see. Funnily, In this seemingly sane world, I have often been referred to as crazy for simply following my heart.
Post doing my B-Tech. from IIT-BHU, Varanasi, I left my college placement to pursue my calling, post seeing a kid steal at Delhi railway station. Being a die-hard patriot, I was shocked by the state of children in my country & wanted to do something about it. Thus, I joined Teach For India. Ever since that day, I have been striving towards my purpose of enabling people, through education to have more power over their life choices.
The way I live my life draws huge inspiration from the lines of the following poem by Allama Iqbal:
Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se ye poche bata teri raza kia hai
(Raise thyself to such heights, That God Himself may Ask-
What do you wish me to write your fate ?)
I am on a personal journey towards my purpose and I hope to have the strength to keep striving towards it. Though I can speak a lot, I understand and respect the value of action. I value honesty a lot in my life and my close group friends know me as a genuine person inside out. I would rather lose people/opportunities than be fake. I believe in trusting people first rather then being skeptical and the people who gain my trust know that they can fall back on me anytime.
I hope that i can raise myself to such a level of purity and integrity so as to have the courage to stand up for my principles as and when required. Most of my thoughts/principles/ideas are still getting shaped and my writing would demonstrate just that. Also, as of now, I feel stifled by even the mere thought of binding myself down with one ideology and thus, i keep jumping from one to another, keeping points i connect to and ignoring the rest.
My posts would be random, weird, strange but they will all be genuine for i write only when i feel like penning down something. My post would show you the real picture(from my perspective) and I hope you like them. Do leave a comment and join me if u like my work. I on my part would continue striving ahead on my path and keep on attempting to sing my song with utmost of purity.

Love and Peace
