    Being innocent means being true to oneself, being authentic, with no pretensions, no masks and no conflicts. Being innocent means revealing our original face with no facade. When we live innocently. it not only creates a fundamental change or transformation in the individual but also in the society at large.The person living innocently becomes a potent nucleus for social revolution. Such a person becomes a dynamic agent of transformation.
    Living innocently requires awakeningand vigilant awareness of the clouds of fear arising in our mind and heart. I was blessedto have my father who displayed courage to stay firmly on the path of being true to himself. He became the role model not only for us but also for the society he lived in. The other great model for my individual transformation and the transformation of the country was MahatmaGandhi. Both, my biological father and the father of the nation, have had a positive strong impact on my transformation

    As I have mentioned before,remainingawake and aware of myself when I walk astray from my authentic self, my true self, helps me to be a human of innocence. It's like being a child again. Living innocently is living fully. I am glad to go through this journey of my life.
