Seema also came to work to house clean, dressed up in her sparkling clean saris and jewellery. She inspired me to wear mine more often. There is so much elegance and grace in this lady.
I went to visit my childhood nanny Bella, in her little village in South Goa. She had cooked me a delicious lunch. I asked her to please join me eating. Her reply, “I don’t need food, you have come to me, my stomach is full”.
I met another man, a friend's driver (yes, some people have drivers there) who often shuttles me about. He wakes up early to spend hours in meditation and martial arts. He then works extremely long days. I asked him how he finds the time.
His reply, “If you desire something, you will make the time”
Simple messages from simple people. As I told my son, you don’t need to know English or be school educated to have wisdom. For love, it is a simple gesture. No words needed. Universal language.
Share real stories, drink tea with your friends and connect with strangers. You can do this in North America and do not need to cross oceans.
And strangers become ..... “Parivar”
With my love to all of you,
