I'm joining Service Space because ... I want to live each day selflessly for a cause for others.
A good day to me is when ... When i see a new leaf or a flower bloom, When birds come to my window sil for water or grain and so many more and lastly When i breathe....a full breathe.
My hero in life is ...Many in our day to day life. For eg. My simply clad gardener who unknowingly showed me a path which I was searching for long without asking.
My favorite book is ...The Monk who sold his Ferrari
One thing I'm grateful for is ... This day that I am living...

On this day, 10 people had RSVP'd and everything was planned accordingly. Then, at 4PM, I got a call from an attendee saying that he 7 visitors from Chandigarh are coming! I was suddenly flustered -- what to do now? It's already past 4PM and I'm not sure how to cook for 7 more people. As I try to be still, my neighbor Chumiki (also a regular at Awakin) calls for some small issue and asks, "Can I make pulav (a rice dish) for the evening?" It was as if the universe was listening in. I tell her ... Read Full Story
