What’s your middle name? Do you like it?
I am a person who does not believe in the dictum a person is known by the name he / she keeps. A person does not grow taller in stature if he wants to be named as attractively as he likes. My name is Harbans Lal Khajuria. The meaning of Harbans whose ancestry is associated with Lord Hari. The middle one is ‘Lal’ which means a ‘gem’ and Khajuria is my surname. Lal though meaning precious gem stone does not find much importance in my life. I am a person who loves a simple life. A no show man who believe in the dictum that credence in my life. I value those things which give me mental satisfaction
In what ways do you stand out?
It is a considered fact that we are what we think ourselves to be. If we have low opinion of ourselves, we are not able to make a mark in the society we are living. Low self esteem leads to downfall of an individual in all the field of his / her activity. A person who has reached to a certain level in a particular discipline and etched out a niche by dint of hard work and perseverance will prove highly productive to the society at large.
Although I want to do my duty for the people I am near or with whom I have interaction, yet, I do not try to make them realize that I have / will be of any value to them. I do that service without any fanfare. I am from a village background, and from a middle class background. I am aware of the need of our society and try fulfilling the same in my own way. I am a Homeopath – this I have not followed as a profession but as a social service cause. My payment is earned immensely when my patient is relieved of the ailment. I get a sort of mental satisfaction which otherwise I do not get even if I am offered the kingdom of heaven.
The strongest thing which I can bank on are sincerity, integrity, loyalty, excellence in my job in hand, go-getter attitude and above all ready to help attitude at all time without any discrimination. (To be honest with my readers, all these qualities have been penned down by my superiors and peer group with whom I have worked / am working presently). In all these, and others, if and when am able to help, it gives me immense satisfaction.
