My life has been a journey and an eventful one. Before I could even realize, I was far away from the shore, out in the open and on an adventure. I was safe on the land but that was not the place I was meant to stay forever. I seek a new shore, new place and a new setting to continue my story. I sail to the unknown. But I am prepared better than ever. I have learnt from my past. My mistakes have taught me things more than any school could teach. I have seen the greatest and the darkest days. I have faced storms and I have sailed in peace. P A H L A K A D A M (पहला कदम)

Every long journey begins with the first step. Taking the first step is the toughest one. It is going to determine the course of my life. My first step is the consequence of deep introspection, my determination and also the faith on myself. I handover my future to the divine. I know that I shall be guided and protected throughout my journey. Ganga is a caring mother. She will nourish and protect me. She will never abandon me.

I have come to you O! Mother. I ask not for forgiveness because you have already forgiven me. You are merciful, you are caring and you are mighty. You have never forsaken your children. I was born from you, I got nourished from you and one day, when I have lived enough, you will embrace me back and take me away with you. O! Mother, watch over us.

She's so holy, she purifies everything she touches. She's fierce, she's kind. She has always been a big part of my life. No matter how far I am, she's always in my heart. I find peace as I take her name. She's a goddess, she's a mother. That's our connection.
