In this episode, held at one of the historic college of Delhi University, Zakir Husain Delhi College where more than 500 students attended the show, Subhash Ji highlighted the ways in which one can stay optimistic.
Shedding light on the topic ‘Think Positive and Be Optimistic’, Subhashji advised the students to have a positive approach in life for better results.They key to remain positive is to accept the reality and live in the present. Subhashji urged the students to not get disheartened when a problem arises, rather look at it as an opportunity to overcome it easily. “Being Optimistic is not easy, and in order to achieve it one needs to continuously train their minds.”
Audience member and guest, Dr. Chaitanya Hirmath showcased his creation ‘the world flag’ on stage after which Subhashji invited Shri Shyam Prasad Pandey from a remote village in Uttar Pradesh on stage. He spoke about the single road in his village and how over 34 lakh has been spent on it but no work seems to have been done to repair it. He is a change-maker who has taken on this task and has written to the authorities and hopes that they take notice of it at the earliest.
Citing these two examples, one where the world is being united and another where even villages do not have basic facilities, Subhahsji asked, “So how can one be optimistic with such contrasting situations in the world?” An audience member answered that is it not about what has happened but what can be done from here on. Everything has a positive aspect, one needs to see it.
The first special guest on the show was Shri Alag Natrajan who is popularly known as Matka Man, who overcame personal medical problems and now collects potable water so that he can carry it to the poor and needy. He is an epitome of how positive attitude can change your life for the better. He said one must not let one’s ego take over positivity.
The second special guest on the show was Dr. Sonali Kataria, who works for the betterment of autistic children. Being at the peak of her neuro-science career, she was shaken when she got to know that her child has autism. However, she did not feel defeated, instead she kept faith in God and took it as a challenge. She says, “God had a plan for me. God has a plan for everyone and eventually it all works out.” She also spoke about family being the source of her positivity.
