If you are a good listener you will keep learning and improving every day. When I look in the past there are a lot of people who taught me good things and influenced my life a lot . From my school teacher to college professor , colleagues , Bosses , friends , family , known etc. I remember dadu ram vilas . He was a very big figure from our nearby village. A lot of people used to come to him for advice , blessings etc .
In my childhood I used to go to him with my father for blessings for my studies and good health . When I was in my 4th year of college I was doing through tough times due to some situations in my family and friends.
I was going to Noida for some work and was sitting in a heavily crowded bus on a window seat. I was looking outside and then I saw some laborers working near the crossing. There was an old man sitting and eating something on the ground . I saw him and he appeared very familiar to me , then i look keenly and he was dadu ram vilas i hurried went down and reach to him , touched his feet and ask him what happen , he remembered me from my father name , he smiled and gave me same blessing and said “Life is hard , but we need to keep going” , “jab tak hath peer hai chalat raho”. And that was the moment that enlightened me. I took him to my hostel and he spent 4 days with me. He taught me a lot of things that I never knew and after those 4 days i was completely a changed person and i promised myself whatever happened i will never give up.
Thank you daddu.
