Mudit Surana - Mumbai, Maharashtra

Mudit Surana's Story of Change

My journey with LMAD started way back in 2009. Having just cleared my 12th grade, I was ready to fly to London to pursue my undergraduate degree. By this time I was keen and ready to explore the world and travel. But between my end of schooling and start of college, I had good 6 months in hand. These 6 months I tried my hands on various activities to spend my time productively like working for a network marketing firm, helping my uncle set up a retail mall. But I felt something was missing. Being a kid away from home and having friends all over but no one physically present was something which bothered me. I wanted to go out there and meet new people with whom I could learn and share. One fine morning I began my search on Google about camps, treks or any other social event catering to the age group of 18-25. This lead to my discovery of LMAD. By then I was completely clueless about what this Youth Conference would be all about.

I happened to get in touch with the coordinators who were actively involved with the conference i.e. Dipti Rane & Binal Thakare. They invited me for a small get together in Mumbai. In spite of all this, I still wasn’t sure what I’m getting myself into. The idea didn’t really convince me till the time I meet these wonderful people who took out their time and met a bunch of young minds and spoke to us about the ideology and philosophy of LMAD. I, as usually kept my mind open and decided to take an attempt. That’s it!! Since then my association with this ideology has been for almost 9 years now in which I was a member of the coordinating team for 3 years and a participant for 2 years. Met some wonderful people in this journey of life. The most important reason for me to come back to this place year on year is the fact that every time I come here, this place has helped me to discover a new hidden talent in me. There is something unique about this place in comparison to any other place. One could be themself in between so many people and still be able to reflect upon their life because everyone has come for the same purpose.

The essence of quiet time has made me think about the various parameters of life. Out of the 4 basic principles of life, Unselfishness is something which got embedded in me for a lifetime. The joy of not being selfish in life just makes you feel out of the world when people come and pat your back and say thank you for being there. End of the day we knowing or unknowing do something but this place helps you to understand that it is important to think twice before you act. All answers to our life lies deep within us but we should know the art of unlocking and accepting the reality. Looking within one’s self was something new for me because most of the time i used to seek answers in others. But later I felt that it’s my life and I'm responsible for all the decisions I take and not others. We as human have the tendency to blame others for the smallest things, which I had already done many a times. This made me feel the need to change the way I think. The journey of being associated with let’s make a Difference has really made a huge difference in my life. Any change takes time but the fact of actually recognizing the change has given me a start. I hope in the years to come the transformation takes a positive shape in my life which will enable me to empower others.
