Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude - by Urvashi Malhotra
Roopa, with grace and gratitude
She enjoyed a life of luxury and comfort, living in the big city of Bangalore, a fashionable home-maker, free to pursue her interest in art and creativity. Roopa’s husband was an engineer; though his family owned a 100-acre coffee plantation, he chose a city career and life. But 15 years ago, on an entreaty by her father-in-law, Roopa gave up all the glitter and glamour. In its place, she adopted the hard life of a coffee farmer. Her father-in-law felt she had it in her, and Roopa, encouraged by him, went on to live in Hebbasale in Sakleshpur district, shedding her life of comfort forever.
