Who am I?

When I asked myself, "Who am I?" I realised we seldom pay attention to this fundamental question in life.

I realised I have various labels which I have acquired through my life's journey & they become my identity knowingly - unknowingly. I am an Indian, I am a son, I am student, I am a brother, I am a husband, I am a father, I am a working on, so forth.

But is that all I am?

Peeling off these labels, to my amazement I discovered more about myself - I am an adult yet a small boy at heart who refuses to grow up, I am philosophical yet practical, I am not religious yet spiritual, I am an introvert yet like to be around people, I aspire to live a meaningful life but still trying to understand what is the true meaning of life. 

It dawned upon me that, I am just a tiny spec in the grand scheme of things. 1 among 7.4 billion human beings, walking on the face of mother earth, who will eventually fade off into oblivion when their time runs out.

Yeah, this is the eureka moment of me!.........this is what I am.

A fellow human being, one among you, walking besides you in humanity's collective journey, through space & time.
