My life, in retrospect, has been quite different from that of an average teenage girl brought up in one of the metropolitan cities of India. I was born in the year 1986 in Kolkata and brought up in the same city. I spent nearly 27 years of my life there.
I started struggling with questions regarding living a meaningful and purposeful life, when I entered my 30s. I had always strived to do little acts of kindness in my everyday life, ever since I can remember. It has always been my life's motto.
This soon turned into a strong desire to live a meaningful life. Why would I want to live a meaningful life? This is something I ask myself as I write this article. It is a desire, to add goodness to the world. I feel goodness should be encouraged, that a lot of problems in the world can be solved by acts of love and kindness.
