What event changed your life for the better?
The event of being allowed to handle one hundred Rupees ( 1958) -the equivalent of Rs 1500 of today in parity , but worth A Lower Division Clerk's one month salary at that time) any way I wanted to, and being told to review the expenses incured from it and satisfy myself that it was beneficial to me or not was agreat incident in my life.. I celebrated the trust my grandfather reposed in me. More than half the money was spent on indulgence and the rest on Books. I continued to buy and read books theressfter. But that day was the last I spent mind money mindlessly on indulgenceat a whim. Never ever after that. I wonder sometimes, wwhether ,instead of letting me be the judge as to whether the spending was worthwhile, if my grandfather had asked me for the accounts of the money, I would have become so much self-controlled.
It is the sufferings and challenges of life which has changed my life for better, like when our family had to leave everything and migrate to India from Pakistan, penniless or when I was left alone to fend for myself. It was when I had to start my life from zero. It was when I had to study hard or work hard for success. It was when I had to walk alone on the path of honesty. It was when I did not give up hope when everything was dark. It was when I had to start from scrstch. It was when I had to suffer humiliation and insult. It was when my own people deserted me. My life started changing when I took over the charge of my life on myself and stopped blaming others for my miserable condition and started working for improving myself.
The moment i entered my college, that has changed me and my life for the better. I have never been so positive before and never been so confident, however much I am if it wasn't for my college. I as a person have changed for the better in these Few years.
