I saw this video on YouTube- a speech by Muniba Mazari, a Pakistani artist and activist. All of the inspiring real-life stories of people I had known and learned until now, this speech, her story stands superior to each of them in all aspects. For me, this story is not only inspiring because she overcame her fears and rose above her perils, but it is even more inspiring because she chose not to give up and held onto the steadfast faith she had in God. As her tale unfurls, minute by minute, it takes us through a vast tunnel of darkness only to show us the way to the lights shining as bright as the Sun.
My mentor and Sadguru, Shree Aniruddha Bapu frequently emphasises the approach and ways Mazari has mentioned in her speech and also on the fact that no matter how dark the times are in your life, they only signify that soon, your life is going to be filled with Sunshine- all you need to have is Faith and Forbearance.
This video starts on a grievous note, only to teach us a lesson amongst many others that “Start wherever you are, with whatever you have, make something out of it and never be satisfied.”
Moreover, this speech truly has the power to transform the lives of each of us.
