What is life!

What is life!

When everything was going beautiful, life showed it’s true colours.

Ever had a feeling that the life is very harsh on you? Ever asked the question why me? He has more costly bike than me? What is life?
Well I hope you find your answers here.
This is a story of a young boy in late 1980’s. He was the son of a very powerful and respected man, he had all the riches and luxury any one could imagine of. His family members were the successors of tax collectors of British rule with the possession of 700 acres of land and a huge bungalow.
He had a great time schooling and completed his 10th grade. When everything was going beautiful, life showed it’s true colours. The family was struck with a major problem. All the land and the property he had was encroached by his uncles which left the joint family of 11 with nothing but the bungalow. His dad could not cope with the loss and was unable to work, as the elder son he stood up and took all the responsiblity of the family. He started to work in at an ice cream factory and as a waiter but mainly at night shifts as his dad was still a respected man. He worked hard to have a sufficient financial condition as he had to feed 11 mouths.
The situation stabilizes, he joined for PUC and completed his 1st year but he only had enough money to pay for one exam fees and he paid ₹150 but for his youger brother and he himself wasted his 2nd year! He worked 24 hrs to educate his 5 brothers and a sister and succeded in doing it.
When the family was finiancially stable, he got married! He married a real fighter, a national champion short put player and an athelete. she was his backbone in lot of situations and the main reason behind his recovery from many problems.
They had a kid and the whole family rejoiced.

She was pregnant for the second time and when everything was going beautiful, life showed it’s true colours. He was thrown out of the family because of a family fight. With one kid in her womb and another in her arms, she with her husband having only ₹200 in his pocket left the house.
He started giving tuitions in the morning, school in the afternoon and work in the evening. The mother would feed the family and sometimes sleep with a wet towel. The condition was soon recovered and the family stabilizes, the couple become teachers in the Guru Nanak school of Bidar and earned a gold medal for the best methods of teaching.
When everything was going beautiful, life showed it’s true colours. The cylinder in their rented room exploded, the family was saved by the brave move of the mother, but the situation put the family back to struggle days. They decided to move to a better place and reached Ballari with just ₹500, here the couple started as teachers and now earned a lot of love and respect from the teaching community.
The boy turned to be the most respected and loved teacher in Ballari and the girl became the most trusted teacher by DDPI, ballari. They own a car, a bike and a lot of love from the 17 generations they have successfully educated.
This couple is none other than my father, Vilas Rao Kulkarni and mother Lakshmi Kulkarni. Their struggle from labour earning ₹50 till here is the only reason who I’am and I work only give them a better life ahead.
When I ask my dad what is life? He answered

Life is nothing but a constant struggle, hardwork and intelligence will get you through it.
-Vilas Rao kulkarni

Ask me I would say what I learnt from them is

Life is an opportunity to be someone better than the older you, an opportunity to achieve, it up to you what you do with it.
-kabira

When everything was going beautiful, life showed it’s true colours. Two years ago his younger son got diagnosed with keratoconus , it’s a rare eye disorder. It costs 10 lakhs for his treatment!!
