Recently, a musical programme was held to raise funds for a eleven year-old boy, Anuj, who had recently undergone a bone marrow transplant surgery at the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai; the marrow was donated by 13 year-old sister, Shivani. This musical show was attended by about 400 people, which included the deputy mayor of Mumbai.
What was amazing was that all these people had taken out time to be there for one family – the Chaurasiyas. They empathized with them, understanding how difficult it must have been for Sanjay Chaurasiya – a paanwala in Banaras – and his wife to see their son, Anuj, and daughter Shivani go through this trauma. This coupled with the fact that they have to raise Rs 10 lakh for the operation.
The music band, Ecstacy, that performed there, did so free of cost. The musicians not only didn’t take money, but instead contributed money towards the cause. The sheer thought of mobilizing the collective consciousness of the citizens of Mumbai is also a daunting task – something that was done admirably by the group called Youth For People.
A closer observation of how this was made possible revealed an intrinsic mosaic of small events – a group member happening to meet someone who knew of the music band which in turn resulted in this show being organized. Then, again, someone knew the deputy mayor, who liked the cause, and in turn pledged her support to help the boy. There was a gentleman who came up on stage and said “Mr Chaurasiya, Anuj has become part of our family and we will do our best to make him well.” How did all this happen – something that was unthinkable just a few months back when Anuj’s father was wondering how he is going to cope with the situation he was facing. Why did these unseen people who till now had no clue about Anuj and his condition, suddenly come together? Was it coincidence or an orchestrated plan from the Divine?
Energy Gyaan: Energy has this wonderful ability of opening up channels. Surely, you must have heard the age-old adage - ‘When one door closes, another door opens’. The more you move the energy, the more channels it opens. Translated, it means the more you explore possibilities, the more possibilities emerge. If you sit back resigned and say ‘nothing is possible’ – well, nothing will be possible.
Universal energy behaves like fractal art – the visual depiction of complex mathematical equations. For those who have never seen fractal art, check the internet for examples of it. When you try to work on fractal art, it behaves just like the universal energy – new magnificent designs burst open with every click of the mouse.
Anuj’s case was like fractal art. With every click and attempt made by scores of people working for his betterment, more channels are opening up and more possibilities are emerging. His case just shows how beautifully this universe works. How there is nothing called a hopeless case. How something will always emerge out of every seemingly hopeless situation. For that to happen, all you got to do is make a positive move, and the universe does the rest by opening up the channels.
