Thankful I have a cup by Devashree Bodas

By volunteer Devashree Bodas, FHI Pune

We as human beings are never content with what we have…! Especially we, “the millennial generation” have this unending urge of always craving for more or comparing our life with someone else’s perfect Instagram page. We work hard towards succeeding for what we aspire for and crib when things do not work out as we planned it. I am an aspiring architect and the past four years in architecture school gave me an opportunity to connect with people from various strata of the society and I realized that architects not just design buildings but are uniquely positioned to improve life on numerous levels for the welfare of the society.


Once I joined FHI and started participating as a volunteer, I realized that life has so much to offer…! I have food to eat, good clothes to wear and the privilege to call the place I live as “home” with the two most important people in my life who are undoubtedly my parents. I learnt to be grateful for what God has bestowed on me and FHI has made me a more responsible citizen of India.


From now onwards, I have developed a positive approach while dealing with everyday things in life and this change of perspective in me is undoubtedly because of FHI…! I will conclude by saying…

“When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty,

My only response is that I am thankful I have a cup..!

Count on the blessings you have, as you only live once. So many things become so petty,

when we realize how blessed and lucky we are..!”
