On one of my recent visits to Shimla ( yes, I do visit this place when I am not in Jaipur ) I came across a beautiful couple whom I have been seeing/observing for years now but never really got a chance to meet or know them.
Bad on my part, I never even said a hello or a good morning to them. But this time, I felt now when I am back to my base I wanted to talk to them, know them and just be with them for some time.
So, I did wish them during our morning walk and yes ( not because I am the sweetest of the lot ) they invited me for breakfast.
Surprising, both are former seniors executives who worked for top notch MNCs during their working years .
Aunty learnt dance ( kathak to be specific, published articles, did a Ph.D and most importantly went for an Himalayan expedition ). Uncle learnt cooking, changing diapers, swimming and above all something he cherishes- being patient ( a trait he says he cultivated by being with his wife ).
I know it’s hard to find someone like them but life would be so much simple if we stopped making it complex like for most other things that we do. You never know when the call will come and then you will have no time to go back to that same person you once left & that one thing you wished to learn may be.
Some people are #madeofgreat . These are people who are really strong from within and aim to be happy no matter how hard life is. What drives them from within is sheer dedication, will to do good and never giving up on small petty issues yet being simple at heart and spirit.
I am also learning from them in this entire process.
The 'cute part' in all of this was when uncle told me that and I quote- " karan ,you must be a good son to your parents and I am sure you will be amazing husband and a doting father '' :) Awweee
Felt nice !
This blog post is an inspiration to all those folks whom we have met or will meet in times to come . Truly #madeofgreat .
