Love never fails!

I went to my guru,"Guruji, my life is gone crazy. My wife always fights with me. She hates me. I want to run away from her. Then only she will become sad and stop shouting. I want to teach her a strong lesson, which she will not forget."

Guruji asked me, "Are you sure that she will become sad? She may become happy also because you left." I was a bit confused now. "I want to make her sad and unhappy. How do I do that?" Guruji told me, " I will tell you one method, which will make her sad and unhappy when you leave. Go back to your house. Stay with her for 3 months and during this time, just make her happy, love her, do whatever she asks you to do. At the end of 3 months, when you leave her, she will become sad. You can achieve your goal. Before leaving, please come and meet me".

I went ahead as Guru advised me. At the end of 3 months, I went to Guruji. He asked me, " So you are ready to leave her?" I told him, "Guruji, my wife loves me very much now and is always kind to me. I do not want to leave her anymore."

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
