Thought to share with you all, my 1 year 5 months journey of sewa in ashram. I am glad that I have received so many opportunities to serve God and Swami ji. Sewa is really that humbles and gives one immense peace and satisfaction inside. Although sewa vahi jo dusre ke anusar ki jaya.. I did what was told to me and sometimes the nature of sewa given to me was something that I never did or knew nothing about it. But that’s the whole journey from being clueless to achieving perfection. So, I will bring about the sewa I did in ashram.. here we go:

Oh here is lawyer turning a doctor.. so you may get to know what it is. From section, articles and clauses to prescribing medicines. But yes I took up and did to the perfection. What all I have to do is to when any patient come, I talk to the doctor on call and then prescribe and search the medicine in such big lot of medicines. And searching a medicine is like searching a needle in hay stack.. though with smartness over the time I arranged them according to the type of medicines used on daily basis. So everything was going well, but one day a burn patient came, he needed immediate attention and I myself have seen the agony of burns, so know how critical this thing is and there was no proper medication for the same. As already know some first aid treatment and along with advices on call I managed to give first aid treatment nicely.. But the wound was deep and patient is continuously engaging himself in dust.. so result was less.. I asked him take some days off and go back home.. so went back and I asked to inform me what treatment you are taking just inform me everything.. he did so and when I saw his hand, i was aghast to see that wrong treatment was given to him… I felt so bad for him and asked him to again with the doctor and change the doses of medications because in his puss was already oozing out and I was constantly concerned but change in medications his wound is recovering and when he came back to ashram I saw his hand recovered and I felt happy for him. There were many patients on regular basis and I will happily guide and treat them and share good bond with village people. Learn and enjoy with them..It makes happy knowing them and they really feel happy and cared…after a while resident doctor came and I was relieved of the sewa..

This was one thing as I was managing along with many things at one time.. From doctor mode to jumping in housekeeping supervision mode is another thing. From pampering to jhaddu pocha.. I will tussle around the premises what is done, what is not done.. getting to know the geography of Ashram. But over the time I perfected it and no guidance, nothing was required as such. From knowing nothing to knowing every little aspect of Ashram. What should be done comes perfectly easy to me then…

From doctor to housekeeping supervision to now another thing I was embracing is administrative work, all at the same time… I sometimes wonder how I am able to do so many things. Writing documents and managing files.. further the work load increased I started handling legal works as well from drafting legal documents to non legal document and day today documents and writing Standing operating procedures for different departments to writing organization structures to Writing HR policies, Brochures to designing work to yet anything. All I was doing all at the same time time…

Also, one more addition was the big fat gadget.. our healthy wealthy ATM machine.. I was given the charge to maintain the Atm. Since, I was basically no gadget girl and always like to stay away from electronic products. But in fast paced society we can’t definitely can manage it.. I started managing it initially it was ok nothing to do.. but as it is machine it started taking bumps and with each I was taking a burb..oh my gosh.. an isko kya ho gya… I will call the engineer like doctor and then he will ask me bring this cassette out and put it back and put your finger inside the roller and turn it around and I was bit skeptical as it will harm my finger… all during the process my tiny hands get scratched and bruised but it’s ok.. I will proceed. And to my surprise, there was some internal problem in machine and by the time I was operating like a pro and inspected it and told the engineer to change the part and I will send the broken part picture to engineer so may find it true.. also the internal functionality of the machine is such as if I’m going to launch a satellite… so many steps means so many… but I got grip over them in a while. Wonder what Atm difficult to manage it.. lot of complications..

And then when there is discourse, I was making rangoli and taking care of temple decorations.. and now my creative mind at display. So struggling to jump from one work to other and then to creating something.. certainly a difficult thing to do in a day.. So when I have to do I start thinking about a day in advance, so that my mind is prepared to do it easily. Colors always pleases my soul and I would make rangoli as I am painting a canvas as I will put emphasis to every minute details. Since I do things with perfection so I would make sure everything is symmetrical and in order.. so the rangoli will come out to be beautiful.. and ah the final touch until my heart feels happy and now it’s ready..

Oh now is our very coy cow… you must be wondering what I was doing with cows… so here keep the records of cow and need to know which cow is which breed… totally unaware of the cow, cows breed.. I researched on net and learnt about it and also discussed with cowboy looking after the cows… and also discussing with gaushalas about the cows… so until you know which breed you wanna talk.. so how can you present yourself…. toh fir.. I would go googling around.. this or that… cow cow and cow.. funny na..😊🀣

Oh now counting numbers… 1234578… so on… something I was bad at….but sewa made me perfect in that…so here I was serving as cashier for the ashram… people often call me chota cashier…teasing me as such in a funny way..and we all laugh aloud.. so i was making all the payments in cash in ashram and managing records.. it was like writing seriously switching in a second to a cashier mode.. my mind would sometime find it difficult to switch between the work. I take a moment and then do my sewa.. I often face it every day..

And another responsibility of Human Resource Management means HR responsibilities too.. I firstly drafted the HR policy for the ashram and then made recruitments and interviewing candidates to calling them and finding opportunities to tie up with universities for recruitments. So many others an HR does…

And now is mask… so I would count the mask and keep the records and pack them and get them posted and keeping all the record and arranging all the thing like whom to send, how many, where and when.. keeping the track of all the post and so I find myself roaming around the campus finding big big dabba.. oh box for sending parcels in huge amount in one box.. so finding a box is another problem and I would search them in advance and ask some ashram help to find so that we can send as early as possible.. so sometimes my office would be filled up with lots of dabbas…most of the time..πŸ“¦πŸ“¦πŸ“¦πŸ“¦

And so many others here and there, so I could say that I was blessed with so many opportunities to explore and serve in ashram. Now, I definitely say there was nothing in ashram I didn’t do. I had experienced each and every aspect of Ashram in whatever way Swami ji wants me to.. I am grateful to him for blessing me with so many Sewa’s all at the same time… completely churned me both in and out.. that’s the grace of Guru Bhagwan..Thank you so much. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸŒˆ
