My Inspiration Story

My childhood has never been easy since my parents got separated when I was still an infant and I don't even remember how my father even looked like, cause I never met him. Since I had no siblings I always felt lonely as there was no one with whom I play or share my feelings. One day my Nani (maternal grandmother) came from her pilgrimage and brought me a little laddoo Gopal all the way from Vrindavan and said here is your friend , take him with you wherever you go. So now I was befriends with the Gokul boy Krishna. I began talking to him , decorating him with flowers and jewels and sharing all my secrets with him which I still. Also, not a day has passed when we haven't slept together, I could not even imagine sleeping without seeing him beside me. His friendship has given so much to me that I started to draw his pictures as well as share my pocket money with him. There are two of his relics that I like the most 1. The event when he accidentally put Shaligram shila in his mouth thinking of it as a sweet black gulab jamun (an Indian desert) as Sri Nanda Baba was praying and bathing it with honey, sugars and fruit juices so he thought that how sweet it would be and kept it in his mouth. 2. The second and the most heart touching frolic was when the lord disappeared from the Rāās so as to break the pride of gopis since lord wants his devotees to be free of all materialistic bhāvs and the way gopis reacted back by singing the most beautiful and painful song ever The Gopi Geet or the Song of Separation. I was so inspired by this event that I interpreted it as my own and formulated a story that how living beings have lost their love for God and got entangled in this material world. Also, I am planning to write a story inspired by Lord Krishna 's love for cows and his devotees for the Bhagavatam project.

Thank you Rashi for your mesmerizing inspiration story. It is always wonderful to share your experiences as these help us create a more authentic story which comes from the heart. 

It will be good not to think about a Topic and clearly identify what you want to discover deeper, is it Bhagavatam and Separation, Bhagavatam and the Gopis, Bhagavatam and Krishna's Lila's or Bhagavatam and Love for Animals in specific Cows. 

Please let me know if you need any help. All the best!
