My name is Nirmal Kartha and I am from Pune. I am a diploma holder in Mechanical Engineering and will be continuing with my degree in the following academic year.
I came to AP for the first time in 2013. I had absolutely no idea what the Youth Conference was about. I was completely blank as to what was going to happen in these 8 days. But the moment I entered the gate I felt this wave of energy and I was excited for something I had no idea about.
We were asked to evaluate our lives with the 4 principles of MRA - Purity , Honesty, Unselfishness and Love. I had never looked within and introspected like I did that day and I was shaken. That’s when this incredible journey of mine started. I learnt so much and my outlook towards every aspect of my life changed forever. With every passing day I learnt so much.
All throughout the conference I could only think about how I had always failed my parents especially my father. With all my cheating and dishonesty I had always let them down and broken their trust from time to time. But after the family day, when by simple sharing I realized how I had always assumed them to stick around and had taken them for granted. I had never felt this way before, thinking from their side filled my eyes with tears and it all hit me.
I made it a point to never do the same again. All I do today, I always make sure that my parents are happy and I truly believe that they are.
MRA and it teachings have given be so much joy and have always helped me to get to my answers.
