*You are a Masterpiece.*- Sri Sri
“A plum once said, ‘just because a banana lover came by, I converted
myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after a few
months and so I became an orange. When he said I was bitter I became an
apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so

Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no

can be. Don’t miss yourself and let the world not miss you.
In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to
the infinite of time to come, there will be no one like you. Existence
should have loved you so much that it broke the mould after making you,
so that another of your kind will never get repeated. You are original.
You are rare. You are unique. You are a wonder. You are a masterpiece.
.. your Master’s piece. Celebrate your Uniqueness.”
