Can one ever run away from one’s
destiny? This is a conflicting statement based on one’s beliefs and
experiences. For some people, ‘One makes his or her destiny on earth by their
hard work and determination’, hence one can alter the events in one’s life by
it’. On the contrary, some believe certain events in one’s life cannot be
changed and they will occur however devotedly we work on them.
I would like to quote a story
which proves the 2nd statement as true.
Once upon a time, there lived a
beautiful, extrovert, bubbly girl in a small town in Northern India. She was
ambitious and wanted to conquer the world. She was working and had dreams of
living a peaceful and happy life in a metropolitan city. Having worked for a
few years, when she felt the need of a life partner in her life, she got
married to a loving and caring boy who lived in a metro. They were very happy
as God blessed then with love, a good job of the boy, a family and a spirit to
travel and eat and enjoy life to the fullest.
They started planning to a family
of their own and so made efforts to have a baby. The girl was not able to
conceive naturally. They started praying to God. The girl took ayurvedic and
allopathic treatments for the same. After 3 years of their marriage the woman
finally conceived by the former treatment and the couple started making
arrangements for the baby’s arrival. But the baby was born out of an emergency
as pre-mature and died after surviving for 10 days in NICU. The sorrow was not
less for the couple but they did not loose hope and started working towards a 2nd
try for a baby. The woman conceived again after an expensive allopathic
treatment and the couple was happy again. This time the couple was very careful
during the days of her pregnancy and all the 8 & ½ months the baby showed
no anomalies in the woman’ womb. But
unfortunately, the couple lost their baby again. They are still recovering from
the shock and have finally decided to adopt a baby.
What would you say to this
situation of life? It is destiny or no? Is it a deed of their past lives that
they are not destined to have their own child? I believe it to be destiny.
Others may take it in many other ways.
