7. Karma of Service Before Self

“She came into my life almost 13 years ago when I was finding it hard to cope with life’s trials. I was new to Mumbai and she was a counsellor who would come home every week and spend time with me, lifting my spirit and helping me sort out my mind. This went on for years and we grew really close.


Five years back, I had a miscarriage and at the same time she was diagnosed with Multiple Myloma. It came as a rude shock to me. But even though she really suffered, she didn’t lose her smile. She fought her illness bravely with such positivity.

A couple of months later, I had to undergo a surgery for Cystectomy. Despite being so unwell, she was there to pray for me on the day of my surgery. Forgetting her own illness, she put me above her own pain. She still goes through her chemo sessions but she hasn’t lost her spontaneity and joy. She really taught me to #careforkarma, to think about other’s before myself and not focus so much on my own suffering.”
