We went to Vizag for a short stay. My very own hometown. 🙂 Vizag is always a bliss! The nature simply marvels U. 🙂 Its the best place!
Andhra Pradesh being seperated, It has seen a sudden splurge of Hi-Fi people swarming to Vizag. The next sophisticated place to Hyd in United Andhra.
The real market has taken a sudden drastic plunge and is raising even more.
Dad took us to the Vizag IT – SEZ and we could only wow the location, envy the lucky fellows who could get to work there 🙁
We were looking around and I expressed my desire of having a home in such nature hugging place. And all my dad said.
My dear daughter, If you ever feel like having something, You should strive to get that.
Those words jolted me. Why? Those were simple, straight-forward and very common words, Right?
My dad is one person who doesn’t rush or go after worldly pleasures. He strongly believes there is no dearth for desire in this world. No he is not a sanyasi. He knows how to be content with what he has.
I pride myself in thinking that I think like him coming to worldly things.
What gives us immense happiness is charities (within our limits of course 🙂 Sometimes oh yeah many a times its others necessities that come before our desires 🙂 )
When he said those words I felt he was right. As I mentioned before, He knew how to be content.
With my dads words I was jolted to reality. I realised that all the while I was expecting everything to be rosy and ready without any work from my side.
Well realisation that I must be having dreams and also work my ass off to fulfil them too.
Suddenly everything is clearer. Whenever I spoke about me having a small setup of my own, a small car and a nice cozy house was all I needed and am not ambitious like my brother, he always kept mum.
But one day my brother suddenly said “I will pamper your kid like anything and he will want a lot of things that you don’t want and you will have to work harder and dream higher to fulfil his wishes!”
My brother never fails to stumble me such statements and all I could say “how evil of you!!”
But now I realise he wants me to dream bigger and give justice to my potential and not laze about as I planned originally!
Hmmmmm … Well that fellow was always beyond his age and owing to the fact that he had little time in this world, He never did anything he regretted nor did he not do anything that made him regret of not being able to!
Lived his 17 year life to the fullest giving complete credit to himself and his dad and mom to tag along behind him happlily.
Well he met the prime minister, how many could achieve that? And what not the prime minister gifted him his pen. How few of them could dream of that?!
Attaching his pic with the prime minister. He was a NCC CADET for the year 2010, the same year he was taken away from us.
Hmmm and what did my dad do after he lost his dearest son, best friend, his smile?!
He started an open state championship on his son’s name and wants to continue to inspire and encourage skaters all over the state and worked to get the AP overall championship trophy named after him.
After 3 consecutive years, the rolling shield stays with VISHAKHAPATNAM! 🙂
Vishakhapatnam which we represented many years in skating and also where we were born and brought up!
Thats my dad with the trophy!
Well thats my dads first dream after his son’s passing away and he fulfilled it!
Thats how he does it, set himself realistic (realistic for him BTW) goals and work towards them.
Well at the age of 25, I still believe with the complete confidence of a 5 year old “MY DAD CAN DO ABSOLUTELY DO ANYTHING! EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE FOR HIM!”
My aim / greatest dream in life has always been “my kids should love me and think of me atleast half of what I/we think of my dad”
🙂 My dream always, ever since I completely understood the greatness, humbleness of dad!
To you dad, mom and dearest aditya; as today I become a mother, hold preciously hugging myself for the baby within me, unconditional love to all of you! And to Satish my hubster for the unconditional support I have within and from you 🙂
Along with my greatest dream to fulfil, I realise I have to dream about more materialistic things and also achieve them! 🙂
