Happy birthday dear Ishan bhaiya...
We hardly meet or talk as before because back then there was so much of time and were living most of the time almost in the same area of geography, but today your responsibilities have multiplied in tremendous ways as a Master, mentor, life coach, Yogi and as a father. So we hardly get to even meet but whenever we bump into each other the first thing that happens to me is that my anahata opens wide apart, my heart smiles in joy and love and then in few seconds your mighty arms clasp around me in a divine and meaningful hug. Those few seconds feels ever blissful and energetic. After few moments we part ways again but you leave behind that fragrance lingering in me.
It's been eight years I have watched you transition from a mighty super hero to a Yogi, from a young-hearted light-spirited spiritual enthusiast to a passionate Yogi guiding, helping and building lakhs of humans, especially the young ones that need guidance the most today. At the same time, excelling as a child, husband and father and this being a role model to so many. But despite all that, it's humbling to see that you haven't really changed and are still a child from within, naughty, humourous and yet responsible.
To the world you are the powerful built man, but for me, all that I always saw back then and even today is your heart of gold and I admire the humble heart in the core of all the external achievements and that is what I love you the most for, rest I don't really care. You have taught me many, many things , not by your teachings or words, for I hardly see or hear them, but you have taught me many things by your example, which I viewed you with the eye of an eagle.
Your best quality? You probably have that keen perception to see through the troubles of others, which others can easily overlook or perhaps even not notice anything despite an open eye... and your attempts to help them in the best possible way you can... And then, I see that happiness in your eyes when you see others happy. That is something I pray be preserved in you as preciously-guarded as a treasure. Even look at this photo itself! This photo was when he very excitedly brought me a Google pixel phone because of my love for photography and this was the first selfie he himself clicked and excitedly like a child he explained me the features it had, on and often demonstrating it personally. You can see that the happiness of the giver is more than the reciever, which shows the happiness that one can get from the act of giving out of love. He has done this previously also whenever he brought me any gifts, it was from his heart. I wasn't excited about the gifts but would with a large loving smile watch his love. You won't believe, I hardly knew technology or how hese phones work or their apps.... He even taught me what was Instagram and other apps! At a time when I hapilly told him that I have thrown my phone and happy without any public interaction, hoping he would like my move, he immediately brought me an iPhone and asked me to behave as a "social being" and be in the world. He re-ignited my writing skills by asking to to blog again. All for his simplicity and eagerness to make me a superman including all attempts to teach me martial arts and giving up as I refused to change from my introvertedness and softy behaviour to match his unmatchable power and energies.😁
