The Irony Of Life

Irony of life…

Gurbaksh Chahal Helping the World

I recently came across a quote from Mother Teresa: ‘the good you do today may be forgot tomorrow; do good anyway’.  I began wondered how easy it is for people to implement this especially given their own life is full of obstacles. Thinking it would take me many lifetimes to find such individuals, to my pleasant surprise, I came across several individuals born & raised here in India.

One such person is Gurbaksh Singh Chahal. He is a 33 years old USA Indian Entrepreneur. At the age of 16, he started his first company. At the age of 24, he sold his second company to Yahoo! and at the age of 27, he started his third. Now he is off to starting his fourth company – despite many obstacles that have been laced on his path. Yet, he continues to stay positive, keeps a good heart and not only battles against the injustice against himself persistently, he continues to inspire the youth daily.  Irony is, with all the good this man has done in various communities, no one stood up to support him during his trying times. Are we that selfish of a society???

Today, we take great pride to highlight the accomplishment of this young man, who grew up in the States, yet comes back to his roots to help those in need.

In his recent trip to India last month (video link), he has helped the following institutions:

Delhi schools/ NGO visited 
1. http://www.aryagurukultg.com
it's a hostel where children from Naxalite areas from north eastern area of India are adopted and given food clothes and admitted to school fees is also taken care by the Gurukul 
Gurbaksh has commited aid to build one full floor of the hostel which would cost approximately INR 700000.

2. Pragati wheel school http://www.pragatiwheel.org
The school imparts free education to the underprivileged and is being run by Mr Raman Khanna 
Gurbaksh visited the school and donated 5 iPads for the use by the students and also committed upgradation to the existing Library which has not so many books.

3. Blind school in New Rajinder Nagar . The resident blind school for girls located on new rajinder nagar we helped them by providing each student supply for full month of needs such as toothpaste washing soap bathing soap tooth brush washing powder and awaiting next session to start to provide Braille slates which they require and will be provided by Gurbaksh

4. My perch Library located in sector 49 Noida and run solely by a single girl who helps the street kids to come and learn basic education needs for free 
Gurbaksh helped the library by getting water purifier for kids installed desktops for the kids to start learning computers and also iPads to learn and be at par with everyone around. The girl was speechless when Gurbaksh came to know she was running the school without having any resources to pay even the rent and handed over 2000 dollars in cash would try n get mail from her

5. Society for advanced studies and rehabilitation 
The society is located on faridabad and was given desktop computers laser printers to set up their computer requirements and helps the children with special needs and provide alternate teaching methods 

Amritsar 

1 Goodwill Public school 

The school has many students who belong to poor families and have no money even to buy uniform.

Gurbaksh supported the fees of the students and the uniforms besides the water cooler and other requirements of the school 

2 Dr earnest School
Dr earnest school is a free school where besides education alternate options of making families belonging to poor families start up their own livelihood by sewing etc 

They required laptops and iPads to which we supported and also needed financial help for a widow later which also was provided

3. S D school Tarn Taran 

The school has good number of students but no computer library and Gurbaksh committed setting up the same which is under process and also they required the sports Goods which were also committed

One of the girls was introduced by principal who was very bright Gurbaksh asked her about her Dream and she said she wanted to become Doctor Gurbaksh commited full scholarship for the Girl besides giving her an individual laptop to pursue studies the video is uploaded on the page as well for the girl Laadli

4 Baba Deep school pahukhand

The Baba Deep Singh memorial school were given ten desktops and 5 iPads to expand their school computer library setup with large no of students Gurbaksh addressed the students and also shared the success mantra there was question answer session also organized 

Mumbai

Magic Bus  http://www.magicbus.org
Magic bus Org runs program for student to livelihood and wanted support for backend office like computers printers etc which wee provided the Magic bus helps slums children to come out and get into main stream of studies 

2. Akanksha foundation 
Akanksha foundation runs free school with government aid for children from slums the school was given iPads for enabling teacher to teach the students with latest technologies

Besides we have lined up smile foundation which due to the restriction could not be covered and would be done in our next trip 

Handed out numerous scholarships and stipends to needy children, who are either parent-less or are in extreme difficulty to acquire education

He regularly supports students with scholarships, funds schools, support programs to prevent youth from using addictive substances

Recently on Facebook page, saw gratitude note of a widower thanking him for financial support for her three daughters, which inspired me to start this page.

 

 

 

His heart is not just bounded to the geographic of this land alone. He sends countless prayers to every part of the world, especially when an atrocity has struck them due to terrorism (Paris, Belgium, Mumbai, to name a few) or natural disasters such as earthquakes in Nepal.  On his social page, one can count to see his prayers as well as request to raise donations to help those in need. With a bit of research, I discovered he spent more than $1 million US dollars of his own funds to promote awareness of the Sikhs in the US, right after the Wisconsin shooting of the Gurdwara in 2012. (Here is the link showcasing his public announcement of supporting to spread awareness: http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/224248. Irony is even as a child he had been bullied. As a grown up, he continues to suffer the abuse of social media bullying). 

He rallied the entire community, regardless of faith, color, or race, to join forces to end hate, bring awareness of the religious differences in the US and promoted to spread this awareness through social media efforts. The message was simple – “End Hate”.  (Link to that video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKEdThFX1Tg)

Yet, the irony of the situation is, he is unable to end hate in this country or in the US. Rather, he has become one of the favorite targets of the social media cyber bullying.

In the recent times, ripping off any successful young person to shreds is the favorite part-time hobby of many Internet trolls as well as media companies (sadly). Any person, who is successful, has to be extremely caution, for they live in a glass cased home. Any troll, foe or friend can throw a stone at them, and then step back to watch them tumble down to nothing in minutes.

As reported by The Sun of UK, an online media publication, many celebrities continue to fall victims of the vile online bullying. Sadly, I have a feeling the same has happened with Gurbaksh. As I read numerous articles, one can only surmise his trolls and bullies intentions were laced by political motivation to bring him down. However, this young man refuses to being bullied by his media and US political system.

Regardless of Gurbaksh’s circumstance, he continues to be an example of resiliency.  He serves as a reminder to the rest of us, "when we do right, nobody remembers. When we do wrong, nobody forgets.” Yet, we should ‘continue to do good anyways’. 

I encourage you to send and share your stories of the way this organization has helped you. Send me these stories and I will promote them on this site.  In this manner, with the help of one site, one person, and a shared unity of gratitude, we can attempt of thank the divine for enabling people like Gurbaksh to continue do good unselfishly - regardless of vile attempts by political social media.

Gurbaksh Singh Chahal is victim of false case put forth on him by the San Francisco officials - Sadelok Newspaper

Gurbaksh Chahal Helping the World

 

 

It is about time, media picks up the real story and defends Gurbaksh Singh Chahal, rather than let the corrupt San Francisco officials bring falsified charges against him. I applaud the punjabi community for standing up and defending Gurbaksh. 

Let us do justice to the journalism, rather than let innocent, good people become victim of society's unjust legal system.

I Love You Too..............

Amazing stories

I Love My husband for his steady nature, and I love the warm feeling when I lean against his broad shoulders. Three years of courtship and now, two years into marriage, I would have to admit, that I am getting tired of it. The reasons of me loving him before has now transformed into the cause of all my restlessness. I am a sentimental woman and extremely sensitive when it comes to a relationship and my feelings, I yearn for the romantic moments, like a little girl yearning for candy. My husband is my complete opposite, his lack of sensitivity, and the inability of bringing romantic moments into our marriage has disheartened me about love.

One day, I finally decided to tell him my decision, that I wanted divorce.

"Why?" he asked, shocked.

"I am tired, there are no reasons for everything in the world!" I answered.

He kept silent the whole night, seems to be in deep thought with a lighted cigarette at all times. My feeling of disappointment only increased, here was a man who can't even express his predicament, what else can I hope from him?

And finally he asked me:" What can I do to change your mind?"

Somebody said it right, it's hard to change a person's personality, and I guess, I have started losing faith in him.

Looking deep into his eyes I slowly answered : "Here is the question, if you can answer and convince my heart, I will change my mind, Let's say, I want a flower located on the face of a mountain cliff, and we both are sure that picking the flower will cause your death, will you do it for me?"

He said:" I will give you your answer tomorrow...." My hopes just sank by listening to his response.

I woke up the next morning to find him gone, and saw a piece of paper with his scratchy handwriting, underneath a milk glass, on the dining table near the front door, that goes....

My dear, "I would not pick that flower for you, but please allow me to explain the reasons further.." This first line was already breaking my heart. I continued reading..... "When you use the computer you always mess up the Software programs, and you cry in front of the screen, I have to save my fingers so that I can help to restore the programs. You always leave the house keys behind, thus I have to save my legs to rush home to open the door for you. You love traveling but always lose your way in a new city , I have to save my eyes to show you the way. You always have the cramps whenever your "good friend" approaches every month, I have to save my palms so that I can calm the cramps in your Tummy. You like to stay indoors, and I worry that you will be infected by infantile autism. I have to save my mouth to tell you jokes and stories to cure your boredom. You always stare at the computer, and that will do nothing good for your eyes, I have to save my eyes so that when we grow old, I can help to clip your nails, and help to remove those annoying white hairs. So I can also hold your hand while strolling down the beach, as you enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful sand... and tell you the color of flowers, just like the color of the glow on your young face...

Thus, my dear, unless I am sure that there is someone who loves you more than I do... I could not pick that flower yet, and die.."

My tears fell on the letter, and blurred the ink of his handwriting... and as I continue on reading...

"Now, that you have finished reading my answer, if you are satisfied, please open the front door for I am standing outside bringing your favorite bread and fresh milk...

I rush to pull open the door, and saw his anxious face, clutching tightly with his hands, the milk bottle and loaf of bread.... Now I am very sure that no one will ever love me as much as he does, and I have decided to leave the flower alone... That's life, and love. When one is surrounded by love, the feeling of excitement fades away, and one tends to ignore the true love that lies in between the peace and dullness.

Love shows up in all forms, even very small and cheeky forms, it has never been a model, it could be the dullest and boring form... Flowers, and romantic moments are only used and appear on the surface of the relationship. Under all this, the pillar of true love stands... and that's our life... Love, not words win arguments...
