Ground Zero...


What does this picture remind you…..?
Attack on World Trade Tower or Twin Towers of New York on 11.09.2001…

Now look at this picture…..What does it convey to you

All of us at some stage in life face this Ground Zero…
A moment in life… when dreams are shattered, when the heart is broken, when a goal is lost, when efforts are wasted, when reality destroys the imagination, when preparation fails to meet the opportunity, and when suddenly rather abruptly life comes to a halt…

This Ground Zero is a face-off with reality when years of hard work, patience, endurance, sacrifice, and performance looks wasted. A brutal blow shakes the foundation of towering personality built over a period of time.

I reckon Everything is over, there is nothing left to be destroyed, years of toil is soiled. Ground Zero is the only reality then…

Think about it….. Just think about it…..

Ground Zero…..! It’s a time for reality check…..?

I thank God for this Ground Zero….. this is an opportunity to restart, an opportunity to rebuild as per the new way of life. It’s a time to lay a new foundation which is stronger to face any blow…..

“Arise from ashes when the wind stops,
It can be a scratch or the first stroke on the canvas.
May be your first fall or the first step to walk,
Can be a Ground Zero….. or a beginning for a Hero.....”

जीवन में एक पल ... जब सपने टूट गए जब दिल टूट गया जब एक लक्ष्य, खो दिया....
सर आपका लेख पढ़ा ,शायद मैं जानता हूँ की आप के हर शब्द में कई दर्द और ढेरो भावनाये है ,जो बताती है ...की ग्राउंड जीरो एक चेहरा है,,,वो टूट सकता है ...आपके ऊपर ..कभी भी ..
आपके लिखे उन शब्दों की कीमत बेशकीमती है ...जब आपने लेख के बारे में बताया ,तो मेरे लिए वो सब कुछ शानदार था जिसे मैं कभी भुला ना पाउँगा ..आँखे नम होती है जब वक्त आपके साथ नहीं होता ,और आपके साथ अचानक कोई आ जाए ..और वो आपके दर्द को अपना समझ कर उन्हें शब्दों की माला में पिरो दे ...मैं निशब्द हूँ ...शायद हताशाओं और बेहद अजीब सी ज़िन्दगी के बाद यह ख़ुशी के आंसू देता है ..वहीँ एक विश्वास भी देता है ,की ज़िन्दगी में आगे बढो
आपकी भावनाओं और सवेंदानाओ को मेरा सलाम
शुक्रिया के साथ
आशीष
takecare sir

Deep thought. Forces you to rethink. Gives you a thrust to start again.

(Note from your lines -- Please clarify what Ground Zero you thank God for)

###Your lines -- I thank God for this Ground Zero…..

There are very few people who have an everlasting impact on our lives. And its great to feel that the impact is positive.. You are an excellent teacher and an excellent writer.. For sure you are a “Hero” I hold a high regard for.. In class Iv never wanted your speech to get over and here in blog I never want the article to get over :-).. Hamesha lagta hai ki kitni jaldi khatam ho gaya.. Keep Writing More..

hey nishant,
i must say, this was a reality check for me...keep writing, such articles, which makes people realize that it's time to start...
today i realized the real meaning of ground zero and the credit goes to you...i mean, i have felt ground zero in my life.. but now "i thank god for this ground zero..."
i have the same opinion as yours... it's a time to restart and rejuvenate yourself...
keep writing...
god bless you...

Nishant ji,
The article boosts up one's spirit..
You have very well portrayed the positive aspect of Ground Zero. Off course it is a time of renaissance.Ground zero-is testing time of one's patience & potentials. It's time when there is NO FEAR of loosing anything more! EMPTY HANDS can work faster & harder to achieve the dreams or goals.
Experiences from previous failures help to plan the progress of new goal more strategically.
