I too could have followed in the steps of my contemporaries - I too could have had a life with people around me. But I chose to take a lonely walk in life. I couldn't have done it in any other way.
There were too many issues - I refused to put away in the back-burner; I wanted to know WHY? Today, at 56, the W H Y is a ferocious `battle-cry' of my life. I have put everything on stake - for there isn't any other way - and failure and success doesn't matter at all. For me the `attempt in its full sincerity' is my Karma.
