Meaning of life : In service to others

How confused we all are. Life is so precious, they say, and we are whiling it away watching television. Okay, maybe not just that but many other things. Mundane things if I may say. Earning money, spending money, and all the things in between.

A major discussion seems to be going on- whether we should worry about our purpose of life or just live life and see what happens next? Let’s not get into a debate here. Both the sides are right because meaning can be found in anything, even in regular, vanilla life.


“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” 
― Charles Dickens

Rather than just philosophizing, I have decided to feature people who have found joy in their lives through different pursuits. Many a times intentionally, and most of the times unintentionally.

Out of the many, who have found a purpose by helping others, Sir Nicholas Winton was one such exceptional man. He has achieved a remarkable feat in his lifetime. It doesn’t seem like he planned on doing something great. He must have just acted out of kindness and compassion. But look what he has achieved.

Do watch this video – It is inspiring and heart- touching. For there is no greater service than the service to humanity.

Sir Nicholas Winton: An outstanding man !


“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
