Rachana Mahajan - Pune, Maharashtra

Rachana Mahajan's Story of Change

I am Rachana Mahajan from Pune. My first Youth Conference was in the year 2007, right after completing my 10th Std. I came to know about this conference through my family friends. That time I was just out of my school life which I had spent very safely in the shadow of my parents. I am so thankful to them for sending me to this Conference.

I remember, on the first day of the YC, I was so confused and scared after looking at all the youth around me talking and smiling, that I was thinking “Will they talk to me? Will they laugh with me? Will I be able to talk with them? Will I be able to mix up with them?” and many more such questions. But gradually as the conference unfolded, I started feeling comfortable with them and talked and smiled along with them. In that conference I made many friends, the kind that I was not having at my school. They were from various countries all over the world. They were extremely caring, and gave me the respect which I was not getting at school. I felt so comfortable and I felt that, “Yes, there are some people around me who can listen to me and understand me.” And the most amazing part of it is that they are all still in touch with me. This is the opportunity I am going to take to thank them for all the changes that they have helped bring about in me.

From 2007 up till now I have attended all the Youth Conferences, from which I have learnt a lot of things. The values have helped me live my life in a much better way than before. These four values - Purity, Honesty, Unselfishness and Love (PHUL) are like the four coulombs on which the multistory building of my life stands, the floors of which are increasing year after year with Purity Honesty, Unselfishness and Love.

During this process I became a coordinator which has been a very big achievement for me. Thus I am also attending the December workshop since the year 2010 which has also given a good positive turn to my life. I became extremely focused in life and started Working towards it by first setting small goals, achieving them and climbing these small steps (achieving these small goals) in order to achieve that ultimate goal, that I have set for myself.

Now there is always a big smile on my face with confidence. I am very talkative and caring to all who are those around me with absolute honesty and unselfishness. They do feel comfortable with me and share their happy and sad movements with me. After looking at me some of my friends have been so inspired that they say they also want to be just like me - happy, relaxed, confident and I can see them changing like me. It gives me pure happiness that I am being a purpose of change for someone and then they will be a purpose of change for someone else.

When this chain of changing others by changing one’s own self will go ahead, one day the whole world will change in a positive direction with the help of the four values that I mentioned above. This has been and always will be the biggest achievement of the purpose of LMAD.

On a final note I would just like to express one statement, “One Personal Change = Global Change.”
Thank you Viral Bhai and LMAD for being a purpose and to change my life. Thank you.

Regards,
Rachana Mahajan
