Johny Kept Walking

It is a story of Johny residing in a small countryside village, it is a story of an individual who has kept on taking all the challenges thrown by his life and winning them over and over again, it is a story of a person whose philosophy says that one should keep on walking.

Johny was living in a small countryside village along with his father David and mother Nina, he had a younger brother Tony. The villagers were not much educated and they were barely giving importance to education in their life. The villagers were happily engrossed in their own life and alike others David was also sailing the same boat.

David was a small time carpenter who use to collect wood from the forest and carve them into beautiful toys which were being picked by the city based traders. The traders use to exploit the unawareness of villagers by buying products at a very low price and selling the same product at high price. The villagers were not aware about the practice of the traders. Traders were taking undue advantage of the illiteracy of villagers.

But Johny was not part of the crowd and he decided to change the fate of his own and the entire village. He decided to pursue his education and wanted to become educated and smart businessman. He first of all decided his path of life where in he would be walking and achieving his dreams. The journey was not at all easy for him but he decided that he would walk, walk and simply walk.

During the initial phase of his education he started facing problems as he chose a different path from others.

David was a small time carpenter and it was very difficult for him to fund the education of Johny so David asked Johny to quit studies and become a helping hand in his work. Johny was getting pressure from villagers as well but he was determined to remain steady in his thought. He decided that he will split his day in two parts and in one part he would go to school and in other part he would help his father. Johny barely would get company of any one from his village as the school was a bit far from the village and the children of the village were least interested in pursuing their education.

Johny kept his momentum which resulted in him getting 1st class marks in his senior secondary exams. This drew the eyeballs of many as it was a remarkable achievement for a boy coming from such a remote background and surpassing other class mates who had good background. Johny and his family were happy from the achievement but at the same time David was worried as well, higher education means higher cost and he already asked Johny about quitting studies and focus more on the work. David is getting old and it was becoming difficult to manage everything for him. In other side Johny was least bothered as he had already planned that he would go to the city and sell his hand made toys at good price.

The idea clicked and every Sunday Johny would go to the town area and find buyers for his hand made toys. It was very difficult for him during the initial period of journey but as per his philosophy he kept on walking on the path which he has set for himself and finally started achieving what he thought for himself.

The quality of toys were good so the acceptance of the product in the market was quick and Johny was making enough margin to fund his studies and take care of his family. Johny use to walk for miles every Sunday to reach the town area and sell its product to the buyers by visiting them from one shop to other. He use to go to school for his higher education and also help his father in carpenter work during weekdays.

Johny kept on walking with determination on his pre decided path and achieved another milestone he again stood 1st in his higher school exams and everyone from his school and village were praising him and his journey.

Now it was a decisive period for Johny as his father became old and weak to work and earn livelihood for his family and he was getting immense pressure from everyone to quit studies and get in to earning a livelihood for his family but Johny wanted to pursue graduation and understand the technicalities of the business.

Johny knew that he would face such consequences so he already prepared a plan for it. He used his savings and bought a small cart. He decided that he would procure all the hand made products from the village and would sell at a good price in town area. Johny did a proper market research by visiting all the shopkeepers in the town are and discovered that the hand made products had good demand in the market of town area.

He enrolled himself in graduation class and in the meanwhile he also capitalized the opportunity, every Sunday he would fill his cart and visit the market of town area and sell all the hand made products at good price. He also started partnering villagers in his profit margin so that the villagers does not sell their items to other traders.

Johny was pursuing his education with complete dedication and he was also doing his business smartly. He kept on walking on the path which he decided for himself and reached the place where he wanted to reach. Johny passed his graduation with distinction and also bought a shop in the market place of town area.

The villagers use to sell all their hand made products to Johny and in return they would get good price from him. The villagers started treating Johny with respect as the entire face of the village changed. This helped villagers and David in understanding the importance of education and now every child in the village goes to school walking on the same path and trying to create a different tomorrow for themselves alike Johny.

“The path of success is to take massive determined actions.”

Story Of A Soldier’s Family.

The phone rang and Sameera came out of kitchen to answer the phone. She picked up the receiver of the phone and said “Hello, who is this?” There was silence on the other side as nobody on the other end was saying anything but Sameera understood that it is none other than her soul mate Sameer.

She said “How come you got time in the morning to call me?”

There was a laughter on the other side, Sameer understood that he was being caught by his wife and said “How come you realized that it is me on the other side of the phone?”

Sameera replied very wisely “You are forgetting that you are speaking with a wife of a defense officer and moreover I know you from childhood so please don’t try your tricks on me.”

“Ok, Mrs Defense officer’s wife. I just wanted to tell you that I’m coming home as my commanding officer has sanctioned my 1 week leave.” Sameer said in a very low voice but Sameera screamed loudly out of excitement.

“Oh my god, you made my day. It has been almost 1 year since I’ve seen you and it is not just me who have missed you badly but it is your entire family your parents, your daughter everyone.” Sameera could not control her emotions and tears rolled out of her eyes.

“Why are you crying Mummy and who is there on the phone?” It was Meera, 18 year old daughter of Sameer and Sameera. Meera came and stood in front of her mother and her mother passed on the receiver to her daughter and stood near her.

“Hello, who is this?” Meera took the receiver and tried to enquire.

“Hello, princess. How are you doing my child?” Sameer asked her

“Papa, Oh my god it is you. I’m doing well but your princess misses you a lot and your princess wants to see her papa as soon as possible.” Meera was sounding like a commanding officer to her father.

Sameer replied “Your wish is my command, I’m coming home on this Sunday.”

“This Sunday, means day after tomorrow, oh my god oh my god. I’m so thrilled and excited.” Meera’s excitement to see and meet her father was very much evident in her voice.

“My child you need to control your excitement for today and tomorrow, I’ll be there on day after tomorrow and will do all short of exciting things. But now I need to go so I’m hanging up the phone.” Sameer replied and asked his commanding officer alias daughter for the permission.

“Permission granted officer. I love you Papa.” Sameer got the permission and kept the receiver by replying her back “Love you my child, see you soon.”

Meera was on cloud nine and ran towards the living room to inform her grandparents about the news. Everyone in the family was excited with the arrival of Sameer after all he was coming after almost 1 year.

The entire family got up in the preparation for welcoming the family’s most missed member. Sameera and her mother in law got into the preparation of Sameer’s favorite delicacies, Sameer’s father got into the task of finding his son’s favorite wine. Meera got up in planning a family reunion on the occasion of her father’s arrival.

Everyone in the family was equally happy and all of them were trying to create a grand welcome occasion for Sameer collectively but the fate had something else to unfold in front of the family. The phone rang next morning.

Sameera picked up the receiver and said “Hello, who is this?”

“Hello, I’m commanding officer of Mr. Sameer’s battalion may I know with whom I’m speaking with?” the person on the other end asked Sameera.

“I’m his wife, is everything ok?” this time there was a sense of fear in her voice.

“With profound grief and sorrow I would like to inform you that Mr. Sameer is no more with us and he lost his life performing duties for his country.” It was the officer on the other end.

The entire world came crashing down in front of Sameera as the news was very hard to believe. She thought that it might be some of Sameer’s friend so she tried to confirm. “Are you joking?”

“Sorry Mam, it is not a joke. Mr Sameer is no more and this is a truth. Sorry for your loss.” The officer disconnected the phone.

It was a deep loss for the entire family as their Sameer have left everyone and the saddest part of the fact was that the family who was preparing for welcoming him will now be preparing for departing him and that too the final departure.

Sameer kept his promise of visiting his house on Sunday but the way of his visit made every one cry, the body was being handed over to the family with full dignity.

Sameera was standing in front of her husband’s body and she kept on touching her husband’s body, his eyes, his lips, his hair, his cheek as she knew that after some time she would not be able touch her husband ever.

Sameer’s parents came close to their son body which was lying without any movement. This is the toughest part for any parent’s life to find their child in such a state but being the only man left in the family, Sameer’s father decided that he would not let any of his family member cry.

“Sameer is a martyr, he has not gone anywhere and he will be in the heart of every countrymen. The entire country will celebrate his sacrifice for his country as a martyr.” Sameer’s father tried consoling the family member.

Meera stepped forward and took an oath by touching her father’s body that she will become like her father and she will also become a defense officer one day.

Sameer’s funeral ceremony started and each of his family member was wearing a sense of pride despite knowing the fact that their most beloved son, husband and father will never return back in their lives. It is wisely said that “The day a family member joins the military the entire family becomes a part of the military force.”

CHANGE

It was a beautiful morning in the defense cantonment area and especially for Mr. Dsouza the morning was more special. Mr Dsouza was getting promoted today to the position of chief of defense.

Mr. Dsouza was dressed exactly like a newly appointed cadet and moreover the defense personal keep themselves very neat and clean in every aspect from dress to shoes and from hair to moustache everything of theirs stay in perfect shape.

On another side of the cantonment area Patrick was also getting ready for his duty, he was the driver of Mr. Dsouza. Patrick was staying with his son Harry, his wife died due to cancer few months back only and it was becoming very difficult for him to handle the outside and inside responsibility of the house.

“Papa, can you please drop me to the school as I’m getting late for my school.” Harry asked his father.

“No, I myself will be late and my officer will never spare me for it as he is very punctual, disciplined and strict for his routine.” Patrick replied his son.

“Ok, How about if you pick up your officer and drop me then as my school would be in midway itself.” Harry requested his father as he was worried that he might have to miss his first class standing outside the class if he gets late. Harry was an average child busy in his own business of doing nothing and just wandering uselessly. Earlier his mother use to control him and his activity but now when his mother is no more he was more like a free bird.

“I’m not sure about it but let us try, my officer might not like you in his car as he is very strict for his particulars.” Patrick said to his son.

“I know your officer is very strict but today he is getting promoted and rewarded so today he might be in a lighter mood.” Harry wittingly tried to convince his father.

Both of them left for the house of Mr, Dsouza, and the car reached the entrance of the house, Patrick asked Harry to get down from the car and asked him to wait. Patrick opened the door of the car for Mr. Dsouza.

“Good Morning Sir” Patrick greeted his officer softly and in the return of that he got a nod from his officer with a small “hmmm”.

“Sir if you don’t mind can my son accompany us as he is getting late for his school and his school falls midway.” Patrick requested his officer.

“Yes sure, why not.” Mr Dsouza agreed to the request of his driver and all three of them left for their respective destinations.

“Good Morning Sir” Harry greeted Mr. Dsouza

“Good Morning son, why are you late for your school?” Mr. Dsouza asked Harry and a small conversation started between two of them but Patrick was scared a bit as he knew his officer is very strict and disciplined. Mr Dsouza looks forward for very specific replies to his questions.

“I woke up a bit late due to which I got late for my school.” Harry answered

“Did you slept on time or did you slept late?” Mr Dsouza asked Harry.

“Sir, actually I got a new comic book and it was so fun reading it that I did not realized the time and it was quite late by the time I went to bed.”

Mr Dsouza did not liked the careless attitude of Harry and if it would have been someone else than he would have certainly received something harsh from Mr Dsouza but since Harry was of acquaintance and moreover the awaited promotion got him lighter. Mr Dsouza ignored this attitude of Harry. 

“Son, do you have any goal in your life?” Mr Dsouza asked Harry.

Harry replied “I’m just 15 and I’m too young to decide my goal.”

Harry’s casual answer irked Mr Dsouza a bit more and at the same time the situation was getting Pattrick numb as Pattrick knew that any casual reply will get his son a left right and centre from his officer.

“What do you mean by just 15 son, if you hold a carefree attitude like this you will head nowhere in your life?” Mr Dsouza’s voice was turning from soft to firm but he realised that he is the commanding officer of his driver Pattrick not his son Harry, so he preferred to keep quiet.

There was a complete silence inside the car for a while but Patrick was worried a bit as he has witnessed these types of silence a lot many times and he has also faced the post silence consequences.

All three reached school and the car stopped, Harry got off from the car and to the biggest surprise Mr Dsouza also got off from the car. This went as a matter of surprise for Patrick.

“Just stand there my son and Patrick can you please come out of the car, I need to talk to your son.” Mr Dsouza asked Harry and Patrick. Now it was a real matter of worry for Patrick as Mr. Dosuza asked him to stand parallel to him in front of Harry.

“Can you differentiate between both of us?” Mr Dsouza asked Harry.

“You are commanding officer of my father and there is a difference of rank between both of you.” Harry replied straight.

“Ok, can you share anything common between us?” Mr Dsouza asked Harry.

“No I do not find anything common between both of you apart from the fact that both of you are defense personal serving for a common cause to safeguard our country.” Harry was very straight this time too.

“There are lot of things common between me and your father, if you don’t know then let me tell you that we come from the same village with the same background and in fact both of us share the same school rather I should say your father comes from more privilege background as your grandfather was village head and my father was just a normal farmer.” Mr Dsouza was very firm and there was a sense of pride in his voice for his achievement.”

This took Harry for a surprise ride as he was not aware of it at all that his father and his father’s commanding officer comes from the same place and one is getting to the position of Defense Head and other is just a mere driver.

“It was just a goal which I determined at a very younger age and to your surprise I was just 10 when I decided that I would become a defense officer and a much disciplined approach towards my goal got me here. I’m not a self-praising person but I also do not want to miss in showing what I achieved in my life and the process of that achievement.” Mr Dsouza explained it to Harry.

There was a silence amongst three as Harry was speechless, Patrick’s head was grounded and Mr Dsouza’s head was heading high.

“I’m sorry Patrick if I’ve said something wrong but my son get a goal in your life and create a disciplined approach towards it.” Mr Dsouza patted Harry’s arm.

“No sir, whatever you said is completely correct, now I think we should move now.” Patrick answered his commanding officer and both of them left.

Harry was standing clueless but this incident changed Harry from within and his perspective for his life. Now changed Harry is all set to determine his goal and the process for attaining it in a disciplined form.

The change in the life can come anytime irrespective of age and there is no harm in adopting that change if it is for self-betterment.

JOURNEY

“Please stand up and give a round of applause for our one and only Principal Mr. Kevin.” The lady at the podium announced and the entire crowd got up and started clapping for Mr. Kevin. It was the annual conference of St Mary and Mr Kevin was retiring today from his services after giving 35 valuable years of his life to the school.

A person with crutch on both side was trying hard to get on the stage and after watching it the lady on the podium rushed to help that handicapped man but the man refused to her help and put extra effort and got into the stage by himself. It was none other than the Principal Mr. Kevin, the entire hall was echoing with the thundering claps of parents, teachers and students.”

The lady on the podium welcomed Mr. Kevin and she turned aside. Mr Kevin turned towards the lady and said “Thank you for offering me the help and at the same time I’m sorry for not accepting it.”

There was a silence in the hall and everyone was anxiously listening to the words of Mr. Kevin, everyone in the school was fond of Mr. Kevin.

“If today I would have accepted your helping hand then tomorrow I might look forward for another helping hand which in result would increase my dependency on another help.” Mr Kevin turned towards the podium to address the conference.

“I always asked my father during my childhood that why my legs are not like others? Why do I need to take help of crutch for walking while others could run and play by themselves?” Mr Kevin paused for a while.

There was complete silence in the conference hall of St Mary and everyone was eagerly and curiously listening to the journey of Mr. Kevin’s life.

“I’ve never talked about my disability or my background ever before but today I will speak about it as it might change the perception of few towards their lives. The perception of disappointment, the perception of helplessness, the perception of scarcity.” Today Mr Kevin was away from his normalcy as he never likes talking about his disability or his underprivileged family background but today he was in the mood of describing his journey of life.

“I hail from very poor background and my parents were barely concerned for their child’s health or any other crisis as the only and prime focus of everyone in the family was to gather food so that each family member gets a fair share of the food portion and nobody stays empty belly.”

It was a matter of shock for everyone in the hall as nobody knew that Mr. Kevin comes from such a poor background, but at the same time a sense of respect emerged in everyone’s mind for Mr. Kevin’s struggle of changing the fate and destiny of his own life.

“I was very fond of school dress and uniform from the beginning and I use to stare children going to school in those uniform. Lot of times I requested my parents to get my admission in a school so that I can also wear a proper school uniform and go to the school but my parents would always deny due to my disability.”

Mr. Kevin rearranged his crutch as his crutch was slipping away but this time the lady did not offered any of her help and Mr Kevin smiled and continued.

“My parents never wanted their handicap son to go anywhere out of their sight as the concern regarding his disability was the prime reason. Though this use to create immense disappointment inside me but every day in the morning I use to ask my parents for taking admission in the school as I was a stubborn child”

Mr Kevin smiled on the comment of his stubbornness and paused for a while. The eyes and the ears of every individual present in the hall was tuned towards the journey of Mr. Kevin’s life.

“One fine morning I started again and this time I went too loud, my mother came and after holding me explained that I cannot go to school because of the physical disability and it was not just school I cannot go anywhere without the help of anyone. The words went deep inside and I came out and sat on the roadside bench and started crying as the hope of wearing the uniform and going to school was lost.”

A five year old boy sitting on the roadside bench weeping and crying, it seems that his dreams and hopes have melted and they are coming out of his eyes in form of tears.But as we all know that if you have dreamt of something with a true spirit the entire world conspires to make your dream true. Mr Kevin continued.

“I was crying, weeping and sobbing but then I found a gentleman who came and stood in front of me. He put his hand over to my head and asked me the reason behind my disappointment. I told him the entire story.”

The conversation between Mr Kevin and the gentleman was so real for the crowd sitting inside the hall that they felt the conversation between both are happening in front of them.

“Do you want to go to school?” The gentleman asked the little boy.

“Yes, I want to go to school but due to my physical disability my parents are not allowing me to go to the school. I’m very angry with the god for giving me this form of physical disability.” Little boy replied to the gentleman.

“Everyone comes in this world with a reason and everyone has a gift of special power to overcome all the challenges and hurdles of the life. The god has created every one of us in the same category but there can be variation in the form. You should not complaint about your disability rather you should focus on your potential areas and explore them so that you can change your life as per your wish and desire you want to live.” Gentleman answered the little boy.

“But I’m too small to take any decisions of my life as my parents would always take decision for me as they find me incapable for this world.” The little boy replied.

“You do not worry about it and if you really desire to go to school than I would help you in that. Let’s go to and meet your parents and I would definitely convince your parents for allowing you to go to school.”

Both of them went and the gentleman discussed with the parents of the little boy and tried to understand their helplessness in not supporting their child’s dream. The parents were so poor that they would spent their entire day collecting and gathering food and if any one of them would take the little boy to school then it would cost a hungry belly for one of the family member.

The gentleman understood the situation and he revealed that he teaches in a government school and he would accompany the little boy to the school and would also take care of him and while returning back from the school he would drop the little boy.

The gentleman assured the parents that they do not have to worry about the books or fees as everything would be taken care by the local government bodies to promote education and literacy in the society. It solved the problems of parents and the little boy and the parents and little boy were happy.

The journey of the little boy started and every day he use to accompany the gentleman for going to school. The little boy was liking the school and the books and the copies, the uniform and the students. His liking towards the studies resulted him in getting in the list of brilliant students of the school and everyone started liking him.

Days passed by and one day while returning back from the school gentleman told the little boy, “Son. now onward I’ll not be accompanying you to the school as I ve got transferred to another school.”

It came as shock to the little boy who is a grown up boy now but his disability somehow stops him somewhere in considering himself as a grown up. He replied “How will I be able to go to school now, or is it the end of it?”

“No my Son, it is not the end, if you look at a flowing river you would find that despite various hurdles and obstacles the river never stops and creates its own way of flowing forward so you do not have to stop. And since you are not a little boy anymore so you need to start helping yourself so that you yourself become so strong that you start lending a helping hand to others rather than asking for a helping hand from others.” Gentleman’s words went deep inside the little boy. And it changed the whole perception of the little boy towards his life.

“Can anyone guess the name of the school where I went for my studies during my childhood or to be precise the name of school where I started my education?” Mr Kevin’s question brought every one back from the word of imagination to the world of reality.

People in the hall started whispering and tried guessing but no one was able to get a correct answer as nobody was aware of the background of Mr. Kevin.

“It is the same school where we all are sitting today or rather I should say St Mary.” It got everyone into surprise that how a disable child who had such a poor background became a principal of the school?

“The journey was not so easy but every day I took a step towards my dream and today I’m in front of you.” Mr. Kevin ended his speech and thanked everyone sitting in the hall, the entire hall got filled with thunderous clapping. Everyone stood and clapped for the journey of Mr Kevin with a sense of pride and respect.

Moral – The journey of thousand miles starts with a single step.

The Wheelchair Girl

Ikcha was lying on the bed, there was hardly any movement in her body. Her body was surrounded by group of doctors and hospital staff. She had an accident where in the truck hit her scooter while she was returning from her office. Her leg was badly injured and there was a possibility that the doctor could remove the damage portion of the leg and replace it with an artificial one.

It took complete 2 days for Ikcha to gain consciousness, she was surrounded by family members, doctor and nurse.

“How are you feeling my child?” Ikcha’s mother asked her and in return she just moved her head in affirmation mode.

“I know my child she will be fine very soon.” Her father said with teary eyes.

“You take rest and do let us know if you want anything.” The doctor said while examining her and the doctor left.

“I want to use washroom.” Ikcha asked her mother.

“Ok, let me ask the nurse for that.” Her mother replied.

Though the body and the senses were not in complete form to create any kind of reflex but Ikcha was bit surprised when she found her mother going out and coming along with a nurse and a wheelchair.

“It is all right, I don’t need wheelchair, and I can walk to the washroom.” Ikcha showed her willingness and tried to get up.

“You lost your legs in the accident my child so you would be needing it.” Her mother revealed it to her which was later being realised by the Ikcha as well that she lost both her legs.

Both mother and daughter held each other tightly and started crying as both of them were very much uncertain about the future but this was something which was irreversible.

Ikcha was kept under observation for few more weeks and after a month time she got discharged from the hospital. The most charming girl of the family was now a charmless girl, stressed and slowly getting under the skin of depression.

Her parents were aware of the change and it could happen to anyone, it was very much like a free bird who loved flying has now got the wings clipped off and the free bird cannot fly ever.

The parents did not wanted her child to suffer due to depression so they kept on charging her up time and again but every time they do it they had to face failure.

Ikcha was becoming more of a lonely child sitting on a wheel chair and looking outside the window. This became her everyday routine wherein she looks outside the windows for hours and hours with a saddened face.

One evening as usual Ikcha was sitting on her wheelchair and deeply engrossed in her thoughts suddenly she felt a tap on her shoulder. She found it was her parents, tears were flowing down from their eyes.

“Let’s end up our lives as the life now has become meaningless for all of us.” Her father said and handed a bottle of poison to Ikcha for which she was surprised a bit.

“What are you saying Papa, It is not correct at all.” Ikcha was knowing the reason behind it but she was finding herself helpless, she tried to console her father.

“What else should I say, we both cannot see you living like a dead body which neither have any movement nor does it have any expression.” Her father said sobbingly.

“What should I do because I’m clueless right now?” Ikcha asked her father.

“My child your name is Ikcha which means will in english and your father’s name i.e my name is Shakti which means power in english and if you combine both of them you can create wonders through your will or rather I should say our willpower.” Ikcha’s father tried to motivate his child who was deep down in depression.

“How?” Ikcha wanted to know the plan of her father as she did felt a bit of motivation after hearing the words of her father.

“You were taking sessions on personality development and I want you to start doing it again, the only difference would be that this time you would be doing it on an online platform. You would be using your expertise to keep a standard situation and I’ll be shooting it and both of us will be posting videos on all the online and social media platforms.” Her father tried showing his child a path towards her future.

“An individual whose own personality got distorted would be giving lectures and online session on personality development.” It seems Ikcha was not convinced with the idea of her father and it was evident through her statement.

“That is the biggest twist my child, just imagine how you would feel if you succeed in changing an individual’s life through your session and make him/her fit to face the challenges and dont forget the task is being done by the one who herself is physically challenged.” Ikcha’s father Shakti was having complete excitement in his voice.

“No, papa I don’t think it is a great idea. People will make fun of me.” Ikcha was in full mood to drop the idea

“If you really care for us you will have to do it.” This time it was her mother who intervened into the situation.

The discussion between three of them went a bit long but finally the parents were successful in convincing their suppressed and depressed child.

The stage was set and Ikcha was all set to start the session with her father , they created one of the room in their house into a studio and the shoot was with help of handycam but while shooting  Ikcha realized that her father is shooting from quite a distance and the shoot might also cover the wheelchair.

“Papa, please be careful while capturing the session as I think you are also covering the wheel chair by mistake.” Ikcha pointed her father and tried correcting it.

“I know my child and I’m doing it with a purpose, a purpose which might also give a sense of living to any other depressed child. This act of mine might change the approach of an individual towards his/her life after watching a girl trying to take session on wheel chair.” Ikcha felt a positive energy oozing within after her father tried to create a positive environment around her.

The video was shot and it was posted across the social and online media platforms, this did gave a pinch of energy to Ikcha but unfortunately that did not lasted for long.

“It has been more than a week but there are only 7 views so far with no likes.” Ikcha shared with her father and she was disheartened.

“It is only Ikcha + Shakti i.e ikchashakti or rather I should say willpower of an individual which pushes even a failure to take a step towards success and become an inspiration for everyone in future. Don’t let your willpower die so easily.” Her father tried to motivate her and asked to prepare for another session.

The father daughter duo kept on shooting videos and kept on posting it on various social and online platform. The views of the videos increased and slowly the videos started gaining likes as well. In every video Ikcha use to keep a small session on willpower and all her videos were named with hashtag willpower.

Slowly and steadily the #willpower videos started trending all over and Ikcha became the talk of the town. The wheelchair part was more motivating to everyone and it was so appealing that it was being liked by a news channel and the same channel prepared a show on her stating “Wheelchair girl changing the mental paradigm.” The show gained enough popularity to make Ikcha’s videos most liked videos of the platform.

The free bird was gaining her wings back which got cluttered and the parents were happy finding their child getting back to a routine of normalcy.

It is wisely said “Where there is a will there is definitely a way perhaps tomorrow if not today.”

EXCELLENCE

Uttam was a very sharp child and he was a quick learner too. He always accompanied his father in his work. Uttam’s father was a carpenter and he use to do all his things under a big banyan tree near to his house. After finishing his school Uttam use to come and watch his father creating various things out of a normal wood and he was very much fantasized by his father’s wooden artwork.

Days passed by and Uttam became a grown up lad, and now he was taking care of the wooden artwork business and his old father started spending most of his time taking rest at home.

The passion for learning things made Uttam an excellent carpenter and he became very famous across the town in a short period of time because of his fine craftsmanship. His fascination towards the wooden artwork business got himself to new heights. The work place shifted from the sheds of banyan tree to a proper shop in the central market of the town.

Uttam use to mix the newness of his generation with the sharp craftsmanship of his father’s generation to create a new wonder which people would admire a lot. The quality of the product created an increase in the demand of his products and eventually it also increased the work burden of Uttam. As he was managing the entire things all alone so he started facing difficulty in handling it. He started looking forward for a help who could assist him his day to day work.

One afternoon when Uttam was busy in his work he found someone on the door of his shop. “Hello, how may I help you?” Uttam asked the stranger.

“Hello, I’m Ramesh and I was looking for some work. Do you have anything to offer?” stranger replied him back.

“Please come, it is good that you came as I was in fact looking for someone as a helping hand.” Uttam greeted the stranger and offered him a chair to sit.

Ramesh and Uttam started their conversation, they both talked about the wooden artwork craftsmanship skills and Uttam got impressed with the skills and knowledge of Ramesh but he also observed that lot of improvement is required.

Ramesh showed few of his work but since Uttam did not wanted to compromise with the quality of the product so he decided to handle the production part and allowed Ramesh to handle the clients and other department like accounts.

The duo started working together, Uttam would take care of the production part and he would infuse new skills to develop and produce amazing wooden products. Ramesh would take care of client handling, order taking, and payment receiving etc. all the major front end work.

Every evening Uttam use to share his daily work with his father and one evening he was sitting with his father and conversing.

“Thank you papa for guiding me so far and because of your guidance and support I was able to create the change, indeed I would be requiring your guidance in the future as well.” Uttam expressed his feeling to his father.

“Son, you don’t need to thank me for anything as it has been your passion towards your work and your ability to learn things which got you from nowhere to everywhere.”

“Excellence comes when passion is mixed generously in to the work and then result of success arrives at your doorstep, remember one thing my son there is no short cut for that.” His father added after a small pause.

Days passed by, the business expanded and now the business started demanding a bigger space. The duo Uttam and Ramesh started searching for a bigger space but bigger space means bigger investment. Uttam had to bow down in front of the hour’s need and he finally finalized a showroom.

Uttam invested all of his savings in the business and the business started growing. The showroom gained a lot of popularity in very less time and now the traders from other cities and town also started visiting for checking the product quality and placing orders.

The duo were working hard to maintain the required pace of the business but at the end of the day Uttam was the owner of the business and Ramesh was an employee. The work pressure increased and it also increased the number of arguments between both. Ramesh would suggest in compromising the quality of the work as it consumed more time but on the contrary Uttam always denied the logic of Ramesh for compromising the quality of the product, and since Uttam was the owner of the business so he had the final verdict on everything.

The difference of employee and employer created a feeling of jealousy and hate. Ramesh always treated himself as the face of the business since he dealt with the customers but after the end of every argument on the quality part his realisation as a face of the business use to take a back seat.

Time passed and the slowly the feeling of hate turned into the feeling of jealousy, Ramesh was not at all happy with the growth of Uttam, he always thought that he is the one who is taking care of the clients, he is the one who is taking care of all the accounts and he is just being paid a salary at the end of the month which he did not found justifying enough. He decided that he would demand an increase in his salary from Uttam who just works on the production part and takes the entire profit.

One day when there were no clients in the showroom, Ramesh found it appropriate time to discuss with Uttam for the increase in the salary.

“We need to talk, it is a bit urgent.” Ramesh stood right in front of the desk of Uttam.

“Ok, what it is about?”Uttam asked Ramesh.

“I think you should increase my salary and you will have to consider it.” Ramesh was straight

“It will be done but not at this moment as you know I’ve invested all my savings into this showroom and I really cannot afford an increase in any overhead expenses right now.”Uttam realized the unhappiness of Ramesh but he was also helpless as he was barely left with money to face any new expense for his business though Uttam was considering increasing the salary of Ramesh in the near future.

“That is not my problem if you do not have money, I’m concerned about my growth which is not happening and I barely find it happening it in the future as well. In these past times I’ve invested my time and effort completely but only two things grew one is you and other one is your business and if I talk about myself I’m still standing the same starting point.” Ramesh expressed his anger

“I’m sorry as I’m helpless now but if you contain patience we all three will grow one day so you need to wait for that moment. Now please go back to your work” Uttam replied him back.

Ramesh left, though he got back to his work but the feeling of jealousy became more intense. Days passed by and the feeling of jealousy now turned into the feeling of betrayal. Ramesh quietly started collecting all the data of sales, clients, business secrets and he partnered with the Uttam’s business rival to ruin Uttam’s business.

One day Uttam found Ramesh’s absence in the showroom, he was worried a bit as he was not being informed for the same and normally Ramesh informs prior to Uttam if he marks his absence. The same thing got repeated the next day and when Ramesh did not came for work on third day as well Uttam decided to visit Ramesh’s house.

Uttam reached the house of Ramesh to know the whereabouts of Ramesh, Uttam found Ramesh leaving for somewhere. Uttam thought Ramesh might be leaving for the showroom.

“C’mon partner lets go to work together.” Uttam asked Ramesh cheerfully.

“Excuse me, I’m no more working with you as I’ve joined another showroom which is next to the temple of the city.” Ramesh replied Uttam straight.

The showroom which Ramesh shared about is the biggest business rival of Uttam and many a times the owner of that showroom have tried damaging the business of Uttam through his cheap tricks. The move of Ramesh came as a matter of surprise for Uttam as he was clueless about it.

“I don’t have any problem in you moving ahead but at least you could have informed me earlier so that I could make some alternate arrangements.”Uttam asked his ex-employee.

“Was I being informed when you decided that my salary would not get any increment?” Ramesh questioned Uttam.

Uttam understood the purpose of Ramesh’s movement so he decided to leave rather than arguing and resulting nothing, the entire incident was to cause an unfortunate consequence for Uttam which he was barely aware of.

It had been long since Uttam had an interface with the front end of his business, like interacting with clients and developing a sales order with a proper execution. On the other hand Ramesh shared all of Uttam’s business secrets to the business rival.

This entire process took some time in creating results but slowly Uttam started losing its client and his business also started facing a decline. The showroom investment itself created a financial hollowness for Uttam and the decline in business was making things worst. The majority of Uttam’s business was being acquired by his business rival. Uttam started finding it hard even to pay the rent of his showroom and due to which he was being asked to evacuate the showroom.

It was a usual evening where Uttam was sitting with his father, he was worried a bit as he was barely left with any money in his pocket and he was having entire family to take care of.

“Things will be fine my son, don’t worry at all.” Uttam’s father tried to console him

“It was you only who took the business to new heights so what if situation is adverse currently, I’ve full confidence that you will succeed once again.” Uttam was silently listening to his father’s advice.

“Adding up to your memory if you remember one day I shared you that excellence philosophy where in excellence comes when passion is mixed generously in to the work and then result of success arrives at your doorstep and remember there is no short cut for that. Your name is Uttam which itself means excellent so do not worry about your rivals as I’ve seen their products and they are way inferior then yours so one day the clients which he has snatched from you will come automatically knocking your door. Son, start afresh and this time do not leave everything the way you did. It is your business and you should be aware about the happenings in your business, be it be the front end or the back end”

The advice was meaningful and Uttam understood the crux of it, he started things afresh and left the showroom. He took up a small shop where in his skills and craftsmanship was infused with the passion to develop something wonderful. The hard work paid off and gradually the clients who left Uttam midway returned as they understood the difference in the quality of the product which was incomparable.

One fine morning when Uttam was opening his shop he found someone calling from back “Can I join you partner?” It was Ramesh his ex-employee. Ramesh moved towards Uttam and asked for his forgiveness he shared that he realised that “Excellence is attained only by doing common things in an uncommon way.” Both of them joined in to create an excellent piece of wooden craft infused with passion and incomparable quality.

LOOSER

It was a dark night and the rain was raining heavily, Mahesh was returning back from his training camp. Mahesh was a trainer in a sports academy and his job was to train the amateur sports enthusiast to professional sportsperson.

He was driving down back to his house, all of sudden he realized someone standing on the bridge and attempting to jump. He called for that person who was standing on the bridge as he thought that the person might be attempting a suicide. Mahesh started honking his car to divert the mental status due to which he might stop and not jump down the bridge.

The trick worked and Mahesh found that the person stopped and he did not jumped from the bridge, Mahesh quickly grabbed that person and got him down from the railings of the bridge.

“Are you all right?” Mahesh asked him and he got the person inside the car and switched on the cabin light of the car. Mahesh was quite surprised when he found that it was Rakesh’s son Jeet. Rakesh was neighbor and a very close friend of Mahesh.

“Why, you were doing this?” Mahesh asked Jeet.

Jeet did not utter a single word he just kept crying. Mahesh thought to not force Jeet for anything currently so he drove down to the house. He called up his friend Jeet’s father Rakesh and requested him to allow Jeet to stay back with him at his house for one night. After having dinner Mahesh thought of conversing with Jeet.

“Why you were doing that? Do you know that suicide is a very cowardice act and do you even realize what would happen to your parents if you were successful in what you were doing? ” Mahesh asked Jeet.

“Uncle, please do not tell it to my parents. I’m sorry for that and I promise that I would not do any such thing in my life ever.”Jeet pleaded his uncle.

“If you promise me that you would not commit such stupidity I would not tell your parents about that but I need to know the complete reason which forced you for such stupidity.” Mahesh asked him.

“My medical exam results will be out tomorrow and I know that I will not be shortlisted.” Jeet replied.

“How come you got to know your result a day prior to the announcement of the result?” Mahesh asked him.

“I knew it at the time of the exams only as I did not answer the questions properly.” Jeet answered with a grounded head.

“Ok, but is the result so decisive for you that if you do not to make it you would end up your life?” Mahesh questioned.

“I do not want to be called a looser.” Jeet replied.

“Son, one result in your life can not decide your potential so how can you claim yourself a looser for that one result which has not even been announced yet?” Mahesh tried to console him.

There was a silence for a while as Jeet could not find anything to say but after a small pause he opened his heart.

“Uncle, you know my parents are doctor and my elder brother is a final year medical student and he will also become a doctor after a year. I never wanted to become a doctor as I’ve always loved sports and I wanted to do something in sports but in a house where everyone loves medical profession I could not stand in front of them with my feelings and unwillingly I had to take medical as my profession but as I did not liked it I could barely focus on the medical studies. I know that I would stand as a looser after the announcement of the medical exam result.”

Mahesh heard him thoroughly and said “Son, no one in this world can claim you looser until you claim yourself a looser.” Mahesh pated the back of Jeet and asked him to go to bed, as Jeet was leaving for his bed Mahesh called him from back “Jeet, I hope you know the meaning of your name, it means winner not looser so at least stick to your name. Do not worry things will be fine.”

Jeet left for his bed and Mahesh decided that he would speak to his friend Rakesh. The next morning Jeet went to the office of state medical authority where the results were to be announced and as expected Jeet was not having his name in the selection list. He failed in the exams and he decided to go to Mahesh uncle’s place with a broken heart.

Jeet found his parents and he looked at Mahesh uncle with surprise as if he was asking him with silence “What are they doing here?” Mahesh asked Jeet to sit near to them and it was more likely looking as if all of them knew the result and they were waiting for Jeet.

“Jeet, we all know that you failed in your medical exams. Your father enquired through his friend who works at the state medical authority. But you do not worry about it as from now on you will be going to a sports academy under my supervision.”

Rakesh got up from his seat and sat near to his son and said “Jeet my son, though we did wanted that you also become a doctor but when we got to know that you had a strong inclination towards sports we could not resist our self and agreed to your uncle’s advice of putting you in a sports academy.”

Jeet was speechless as he did not expect his father in such a form and he hugged his father tightly. His mother came and put her hand on his son’s head and said “You can’t lose the game until and unless you quit the game and if you are really worried about others calling you loser than put your 100 % in your sports academy training and emerge out as a winner.”

The support of parents helped Jeet in his confidence building and the self-claimed looser changed the perspective towards his life and decided to put his 100 % in the sports academy.

During the initial period Jeet played all the sports under the training of his savior Mahesh uncle with full enthusiasm and later he discovered that swimming was very much of his type so he decided to pursue swimming as his sports career. In a very short time he started representing his sports academy on the state level.

Under the rigorous training of Mahesh uncle the self-claimed loser Jeet participated in various state levels swimming championship and won many rewards for his academy. The potential and the talent of Jeet were addressed and he was being selected to represent his state in the national level swimming championship. The news spread like a wild fire everywhere, as nobody in the territory ever participated in national level championship.

Jeet gave his blood, sweat and everything for this championship, Jeet participated and as he was religiously and rigorously training for this national level swimming championship, he won the gold which meant he stood first in the championship.

“Jeet is our Hero, He is the real winner for us.” The crowd was calling for the victory of their winner Jeet. Everyone was happy and celebrating, Jeet was also cherishing the moment by waving back to the crowd.

Jeet was standing in his balcony with his Mahesh uncle and it was unbelievable for him to find so many people calling his name. The family was happy and his uncle was also happy.

“Can you see the crowd cherishing your win and calling you a winner, what if I was late that day you could have easily ended the possibility of you becoming a winner with a preconceived notion of a loser tag in your head for yourself.” Mahesh whispered to Jeet.

“I’m sorry uncle as I can conclude now that no one in this world can claim you a looser until and unless you claim it for yourself.”

NEW

“Sorry papa but I’m not going to join the family business as I’ve made up my mind in doing something new and unique.” Navin straightway declined his father’s offer of joining the family dairy business and he walked out of the room.

Navin’s family had a dairy business and it was the most renowned dairy firm of the town. The business was started by Navin’s grandfather with just 2 cows and 1 buffalo and later his father took the charge and got the business to new heights and made it the top dairy firm of town with 150 cows and 125 buffaloes.

Navin’s father and grandfather were looking at each other and were clueless after hearing Navin’s decision of not joining the family dairy business. Grandfather understood the intensity of the situation and knew that this cannot be done forcefully so he called his grandson back to the room.

“Son, why are you not willing to join the business?” Grandfather asked his grandson.

“I want to do something new and different, I do not want to get into the dirt of cow dung and flies everyday” Grandson showed his disliking.

“That cow dung and flies has paid your school fees and your expenses.” Navin’s father tried to interrupt the conversation but he was being asked to step aside and do not interfere in the conversation by grandfather.

“What new and unique you want to do?” Grandfather asked grandson softly.

“I want to do something on the online platform, like selling products on an online platform. This will not just limit to one place as one can reach to hundreds and thousands of individuals through internet.” Grandson excitedly revealed his plan to his grandfather.

“Is it possible and if yes than how?” Grandfather quizzed his grandson as he was clueless about the internet thing where one can buy and sell products.

“I will be building a website where in I will be listing all the products which I will be dealing into and reach my target audience, the client will place their orders and I will be delivering it at their mentioned address through postal courier.” The grandson revealed his blueprint in front of his grandfather.

“Ok, your plan seems very exciting and it has also got newness in it. How about mixing our traditional business with your new generation plan?” Grandfather wanted to know the opinion of his grandson but at the same time his inquisitiveness raised the eyebrows of Navin’s father, he interrupted again. “What are you saying father?” and alike earlier grandfather asked Navin’s father to be quiet.

“I’ve not thought that way.” Navin said it to his grandfather.

“Think on it and come up with a plan, I’ll support you on this.” Grandfather’s assurance got Navin to cloud nine after all the newness got a support but at the same time it also irked the traditional process. Navin’s father was not convinced and he asked his father to take his words back. Navin was not that much happy with his father’s reaction but at the same time he had an assurance from the head of the family.

Grandfather said to his son “It is good that we have a traditional process but at the same time we should also infuse something newness in our traditional process so that we are keep up with the pace of today’s generation. If I remember it correctly it was you who created a quality check process in the system so as to the best of the product gets delivered. You can easily assess the result of infusing the quality check process in our age old process, our client base grew by threefold and everyone in the town got fond of our quality led dairy products.”

After lot of discussion and argument a combined decision was being taken that Navin would create an online platform where their dairy products would get listed and it would be sold there. Initially there would be fewer products so that the tasting of water gets done and if things fall on place the entire range would be brought on board.

The meeting got finished and Navin was about to leave but suddenly his grandfather stopped him and said “I believe in you my son and in your new ideas as well, I would expect you to create newness in yours and everybody’s life through your creative and out of the box thinking. That is the meaning of your name too, Navin means new so keep up the spirit and live up to your name.”

Navin hugged his grandfather tightly and  he assured his grandfather that his believe would not be let down by any means and Navin would live up to the meaning of his name creating newness in everybody’s life through his creative thinking.

The blue print of the business model got ready and the entire business model got split into two, front end and back end.The front end was being handed over to Navin and he was given the responsibility to take care of business development and client servicing .On the other end his father took the charge of backend which comprised of the operations and production.

Navin was happy with his role as he would barely witness the fields, cattle, cow dung and flies and he got into his expertise completely. He appointed distributors of his dairy products across state and asked them to maintain an inventory of the products which were listed on the online platform. The online platform was very nicely constructed and it was a visitor friendly too.

The distributors and the channel partners were not very excited to get associated with Navin but his newness and clarity towards the business process attracted everyone. The website went live and various marketing campaign were being done to create its awareness. The process clicked and it started attracting visitors towards the online platform and eventually it started generating orders. The orders were being passed to the distributor who could deliver the order at earliest.

The new online idea of Navin clicked and in no time the website gained immense popularity due to its quality product and service. The grandfather was very happy with his decision of supporting his grandson who infused newness in the traditional process and gained good amount of business.

It is wisely said that one should change from old to new as the change is the only constant process of universe.
