Try walking in my shoes!


After realizing the path, there are bound to be many obstructions along our way. This is quite natural; we create things, what we think.

Human life tends to have many speed breakers during his progress. Some can be useful to achieve control; some can ruin a life. There shall be perfect things happening in our lives and not so perfect things.

Here we have it, not so perfect roads along our way. But is this the sole reason for not moving forward?

People ask me about my challenges, and even I ask my friends. I do get different answers from different personalities.

This made me think as to define my challenge. After giving a lot of thought to this, I just arrived at something I wanted to tell.

I realized, my greatest challenge was to be “Out of my comfort zone” and still be the same person. It’s like watching my life from a different perspective and trust me, I did get a different answer. I stepped out of the protagonist role I play in my life and, for few minutes, observed how I was from a third person’s point of view.

Now I am back donning my role, and I am doing things differently or trying to do it differently when I encounter similar past, not so pretty situations.

To be nobody but Rajan in a world that is doing its best, day and night, to make me everybody else means fighting the hardest battle I can fight, or any human can fight and believe I or that matter anyone should never quit fighting.

It’s like a feeling of being on a Lost highway if appropriate measures are not taken.

Knowing this, it becomes comfortable about things under my control, i.e., being myself and improving on it and not worrying about things that are not under my control.

It’s a simple belief. “If I can change, you can change; rest assured the whole world can change.” Yes, I heard it first in a Rocky movie, Rocky IV, to be precise.

If there is one thing in our lives that is constant throughout, that is “CHANGE.”
