I am beginning to dream


Yet she knew he had come. But she also knew that for a long time, she would not be able to say anything. She would not be able to ask him anything. Ask what?

She is young, beautiful and just two years into her profession as a software engineer at MindTree. Born into a middle-class family of a scientist from Kerala, she has been living by herself in the bustling city of Bangalore. Her world revolved around her work, her family and of course the hope of building a future for herself with her fiancé – a handsome young man from Assam. They had met through friends. He also happens to be in the Information Technology industry, temporarily on a long-term assignment to the United States. Life could not have been more beautiful; full of hope for someone like her who could ask for little else. Then last week, everything changed.
It happened when she was returning from work, riding home on one of the many Volvo buses plying the city. As she was about to step out of the bus when her stop came, the door inadvertently closed in on her due to driver-error and in a moment, her body was pulled under, the wheels of the bus went over her knees, completely crushing the left leg. In that horrible moment of excruciating pain, she lay screaming under the weight of the bus. People stood around, in shocked inaction. A young woman got down from the bus to see what had happened; she summoned the courage to get people to pull her out from under the bus and then brought her to a hospital for emergency care. The attending doctors realized that the injury was severe and they rushed her to a super-speciality hospital where a series of emergency operations were conducted. Among the many critical procedures, doctors tried to repair the vessels supplying blood to the lower parts of leg so that blood supply could reach the extremities without which there was the danger of gangrene setting in. Unfortunately, the effort did not succeed. The knees had been completely crushed. The devastated parents and a few other relatives came rushing. As she kept her struggle on, a decision had to be taken to amputate the leg without which there could be a serious risk to her life. Time was running out. Finally, everyone consented that the left leg must be amputated above her knees. There was no other way.
The inevitability of that decision will take a lifetime to sink in. Her life has changed forever.
When her fiancé heard about the accident, he rushed back to Bangalore. She was in critical care, alternating between sets of life-saving equipment in the ICU and the multiple trips to the operation theatre under heavy dosage of cocktail anti-biotic and morphine to numb her entire consciousness.
Yet she knew he had come.
But she also knew that for a long time, she would not be able to say anything.
She would not be able to ask him anything.
Ask what?

***

After a couple of days of the accident, I met the young man in my office. With the amputation, the series of plastic surgeries that would follow, the management of pain, the trauma, then the slow process of her rehab and finally getting to use a prosthetic leg to gradually return to the world, it would be one long-haul. He in the meantime, had come to discuss about the formalities related to her employment insurance; issues like who would pay how much and what all needed to get done so that she could get the best care possible. After meeting with my colleagues, he had dropped by to see me. It was clear from his demeanour that he had come back to take charge. As I was talking to him, I could not but admire the courage, the character and the commitment. It was her life. It was his too. If he would have been “practical”, probably even she would understand.
As we parted after the meeting, I shook his hand and I looked into his young, resolute and immensely powerful eyes.
“I admire you“, I told him. He knew what I was talking about.
There was a moment of silence. Then he spoke.
“Nothing changes for me” he said with the firmness of a mountain. I watched him leave.
I know it is going to be another long haul for the one still in the hospital as I write my blog but for now, and for her, I am beginning to dream.

A truly inspiring and touching message, Mr. Bagchi. I believe that the world still survives because there are many people like the young man you have written about. The positive energy such people radiate makes the world a livable place. Otherwise, it would really be a wasteland.
My best wishes go out to the young couple. I hope they are able to rebuild their lives and come out stronger.

Hi Sir,

I subscribed to your blogs after listening to your talk in iimb last Saturday. I felt so inspired that i thought whether i work for Mindtree or not, i need to get in touch with you once a while to feel your goodness and greatness that is gushing out.

Having survived a RTA which killed my colleague, while returning from work, am just praying for courage to accept things that i can not change and her health and happiness.

God bless you

True love comes quietly without any banners or flashing lights. A girl who chose such a man can have nothing but the greatest of determination, courage and will to continue building her dreams. Your note will reach millons whose prayers in turn will show its magic on her.I pray for her speedy recovery.

Some things and events in life do not look real. I was deeply moved by your blog and the boys commitment and care. I am beginning to feel that so called hope is real.
I understand that MindTree is doing everything at its command to help the family in its most difficult phase. My appreciation has grown many folds towards your company and the management.

One day my senior Kirti took me to her home on the outstirts of Nagpur. I was astonished to see the sheer beauty of the cottage in which her parents were living. Two bedroom,on the bank of Kolar river with a beautifully manicured garden, was the home for Rtd.Lt.Col. Saran and his wife, since both the children were in hostel. When Mrs Saran was making tea, then only I realised that she cant see. Nothing great about this part but the next 2 informations took my breath away.
1. Mrs. Saran lost her sight before marriage.
2. It was her idea to get this cottage done.

I just looked at Lt. Col. SAran and I saw in his eyes the same sentence ‘Nothing changed for me’

This was Nov. 1979

Subroto, That post really packed some punch.. but I disagree. A lot will change for that guy.. and their dreams have been dented in a big way. I have quite a few couple-friends who are regularly apart because he has to pursue that big project in the US. She is often wary, but having so much sehen-shakti, gives in. Her dreams are often quite simple. A small home, flowers and happiness.
Maybe the accident would not have happened if they had opted for less money and more love..

When a man is known to make the nastiest of excuses to betray the woman he committed to, this man did not desert his lady. Such unconditional love and commitment in the face of worst odds? What a divine soul! What a man! A real one too! He has proved that the difference that makes no difference should make no difference. He proved love people, use things. Not vice-versa. God bless them both.
In the existence of good men, I am beginning to believe.

“One positive dream is more powerful than a thousand negative realities.” So, as the Harlem Renaissance poet, Langston Hughes said, let’s:

“Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die,
Life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams for when dreams go,
Life is a barren field frozen with snow.”

Praying for your young and beautiful colleague’s speedy recovery.

But for sure “She will be back with the bang in her Life”.

It’s amazing how life changes in a split second. Truly blessed are those, who have people standing by their side even when life itself is turning its back on them. Such incidents help remind you of how blessed you’re yourself, you feel grateful for all the love & support that you get from your loved ones; something, which we normally don’t realize nor appreciate.

Thank you for sharing this story.

I am really happy to read this blog of your’s. This girl happens to be a friend’s friend and when my friend told me about his friend’s accident the day it happened I felt bad. Being a doctor I also knew what all physical and psychological pain she will have to go through but what I was wondered the most was how her fiance will react to this situation? And I am really very happy for her that she has him! A great guy! All the best to both of them :) And I admire him too!

Thursday February 25th 2010

Being ‘practical’ is all what people ultimately arrive at. This post exposes the current beneath that practicality, which is extreme, stinking selfishness. I admire the man, not for his courage. For it is not courage, but love that played here. The love that inspired him to be courageous to stand by one’s conviction. The blog is an eyeopener for many who stand confused, between one’s heart and (the society’s) head. But yet the question remains. Can one afford to stand by his/her heart when it is existence of his dependents that is threatened? I know of my seniors in the newspaper industry who have to live through dishonesty because they fear losing jobs. They are at an advanced age and have grown-up kids to pay for. How do they go by their heart? Why are we put in a cauldron where if we have to emerge out of the grimy froth, we have to be bubbles who are ready to shed all the weight of values? What are true values by the way? Are they the only values which have social sanction? It is a queer, quagmirish world. Indeed!

    Dear Aparna,
    Generally I do not like to share personal matters on a website and with people whom I have not met. But your mail for some reason forced me to write and to answer that Yes one can afford to stand by his/her heart when it comes to the existence of the dependents. I have left a well paying job because I did not want to compromise on my values and family. Secondly, I have two small kids whose education depends on my earning. I am struggling but I will never compromise. As I believe that my children tomorrow will do what I did. It is painful but one must take the decision.

Dear Mr. Bagchi,

First and foremost, if inspiration could be personified it would look exactly like you.

Your column on Forbes, “Zen garden” is something which I dream to do someday. Inspiring people with the story of the lives of stalwarts in their own rights, getting a feel of the efforts they put in making the impossible and the ridiculous – possible and thereby torching paths for more dreamers to tread their way is something I aspire being part of.

Is there a way in which you could give me an opportunity to be a part of the inspirational journey of chronicling the legends of today for the champions of tomorrow?

May all the love and blessings of the almighty be with the MindTree mind during this difficult time. I hope she gets the best treatment possible. Certainly, life is difficult. At the same time, miracles can happen and do happen. Lets hope she gets well somehow. Hats off to the young man who returned from USA. God bless you.

Dear Mr Bagchi,

The incident speaks so much of the courage and value systems in personal life, which no doubt, will also translate to his professional life.

It will be a painful haul for him in the short term, he may lose a lot of sleep, both to take care and to anguish on what he may have apparently lost. But i am sure he will sleep better.

I am reminded of a similiar young man i have met. He was committed to marry a friend. Tragically she was diagnosed with cancer. Nothing changed for him too. He has married her much against the wishes of his parents. Every time i see him, i make a mental bow, for, unlike you, he doesnt know that i do.

Wednesday May 5th 2010

Well I know the Girl personally, which Mr Bagchi has portrayed. She is the living example of kindness, and thats the reason why she deserve such a guy as fiancé. I recollect, once when we were in school , She gave food to a robber who was trying to rob her own house. As when, he was caught by her, he told her “Maa’m I dint have food for 4 days, and my hunger made me do this…”. She, instead of calling the police and getting him arrested , advised him to be a good human, and to do some job for his daily bread and shared with him the food she had made that day. Initially I thought she was stupid to do that, but then later on I found it’s me who is stupid. Because, She could guide someone to life and helped him to survive from his long hunger! Which not everyone can do or think of.

Hi All,
I thank you for your wishes and prayers; I think that energy has translated into a faster healing process for me. I am truly blessed to have the support of my family, my fiancé and my friends, and all of you! I would also like to mention about a special person who took the initiative to take me to the hospital right after the incident, if it were not for her, perhaps I wouldn’t be here today.
The best part was that my fiancé and his family were there with me during the critical part of the ordeal and that has helped me heal faster and feel confident about myself again. I feel that has been a big bonus in my life.
Perhaps the most important thing that this incident has taught me is the unpredictability of life, the transience of it all. The best thing is to do let go and not cling on to anything in life. I do miss my lost leg, but I guess the only way to deal with it is to accept what has happened and look ahead in life for more adventures ;D …It’s still an effort in progress.

I’m connected to your blog very recently. Although, I came in contact with your article first in 2004 in Business World “Cucumber Seller” then your comments on CKP in ET and now recent speech delivered at Class 2006, IIM Bangalore.The inherent philosophy of your views to the world touches every heart and everyone learns from this.I remember the words in Cucumber Seller “we are not complete if we are not connected” and your final comment “I wanted to touch his feet” give me the message that a human being must understsand the core of humanity and must bow before it. The process of learning remains incomplete if we fail to understand this.Your articles and speeches carry the same philosophy.

It’s a great commentary on someone’s deep commitment and courage of conviction. Like you, I find myself admiring this young gentleman. We love our parents regardless of their looks, education and station in life. We stand by them even when they are disabled. It shoul be the same when it comes to our life partners. The real take away for such a relationship with life partner is an abiding trust which makes one relaxed and leaves one emboldened in all one’s endeavours. I wish and pray they live a conjugal life of bliss and abundance. – Tilak

Sir, I started reading your blog after one of the shopkeeper suggested me your book”Go,kiss the world”. Although I still have not got opportunity to read your book,but I have followed your writings on net.
More than taking a decission,it takes courage to standby your decission,no matter what happens around you specially some of your very own peoples’ reactions.
Having a son of three year old, it took all my courage to standby my decission,when my husband left us alone. For having suffered a huge financial loss because of his own mistakes,and couldnt face the middle class family were the reasons given by him later. I got lot of suggestions from friends and family to lead a independent life forgetting him. But we(me and my son)still love him so much that I decided not to depart our ways. It is long waiting for us,untill he corrects all his mistakes and comes back. I have a strong belief that 6 yrs of our memories together,will give us this strength.
