uncertainties of life with turns and twists, at varying speed and frequency

Where does faith fit
Sri Aurobindo says,” Faith is not an
intellectual belief but function of the soul”.
A journey that took me
through experiences that was, not by any means, a ready-made bed of roses. All
the adversity I have faced in life: troubles and obstacles seemed to strengthen
Hence, success is not
measured by the position you have reached in life but by the obstacles that you
were to overcome by prayer and faith.
