From Grief to Glory
I was born into a family with a media background. With my grandfather being a senior journalist and a freedom fighter; I was expected to conform to predetermined societal norms. This didn’t sit well with me as I am free-spirited and could not express myself during the early stages of my life. In the 4th grade, life took a turn, and I told my parents I wanted to study at a school in Aurangabad and soon moved to my maternal grandparents’ house.
It is here that my journey of self-discovery began. I learnt new things, met new people and was thrown into novel situations. This made me independent and strong; but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have a soft corner in my heart, I did; and it belonged to my grandparents.
They were my everything, and their demise left a void in my heart. Life was nothing but a dark tunnel with no end in sight. This is when I turned to spirituality and decided my parents and I should help each other overcome and accept this terrible loss.
I was away from my parents for 19 years and felt I had missed the chance for us to get to know each other. But, I was wrong; I should have known a parent-child bond can never fade, no matter the distance. However, I made a conscious choice to make up for those 19 years to the best of my ability and turn a new leaf. I began to relate to them and shared my feelings and emotions with them. Today, we have a loving relationship, and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
After all, I have overcome in life; I am now an architect with my own practice. Apart from this, writing has always been in my blood, and I make time for my profession and my passion equally. I have a well-organized content schedule and write blogs and create content accordingly. I write for myself, and a reader liking my work is just a bonus.
My goal is to make my mark in the world and be a personality that is filled with value and inspiration. It’s been a tough journey, but I’ve made it here, and I can’t wait to see the things I conquer in the future.
