“A plum once said, ‘just because a banana lover came by, I converted myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after a few months and so I became an orange. When he said I was bitter I became an apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so many people, I have changed so many times that I no more know who I am.  How I wish I had remained a plum and waited for a plum lover.’

Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity for you to strip yourself of your originality. You need to think ‘Good’ of yourself, for the world takes you at your own estimate.

Never stoop down in order to gain recognition. Never let go of your true self to win a relationship. In the long run, you will regret that you traded your greatest glory – your ‘UNIQUENESS’, for momentary validation. Even Gandhi was not accepted by many people. The group that does not accept you as ‘YOU’ is not your world.

There is a world for each one of you, where you shall reign as king /queen by just being yourself. Find that world… In fact, that world will find you.

What water can do, gasoline cannot and what copper can, gold cannot.  The fragility of the ant enables it to move and the rigidity of the tree enables it to stay rooted. Everything and everybody has been designed with a proportion of uniqueness to serve a purpose that we can fulfill only by being our unique self. ‘You’ as ‘you alone’ can serve your purpose and ‘I’ as ‘I alone’ can serve my purpose.  You are here to be you… Just YOU.

There was a time in this world when a Krishna was required and he was sent. There was a time when a Chirst, a Mahatma Gandhi, J.R.D. Tata and many others were required, and they were sent. There came a time when you were required on this planet and hence you were sent. Let us be the best we can be.


In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to the infinity of time to come, there will be no one like you.  Existence should have loved you so much that it broke the mould after making you, so that another of your kind will never get repeated.


‘YOU’ are RARE.


‘YOU’ are a WONDER.

‘YOU’ are a MASTERPIECE…Your Master’s piece.

Celebrate your ‘UNIQUENESS’.

    @ Pinky – To know the God’s Purpose for creating us, you must read the CWD Triology from Neale Donald Walsh. You will understand the whole scenario. I have read and could explain you this, but its long topic. So I suggest you to read and allow to welcome the wisdom from God within you! 🙂

    I agree, we all have come with a purpose and we all are unique. Lets remain what we are.
