Varshil Shah, who is a brilliant boy, scored a 99.9 percentile in class 12 and made everyone in his family and school proud with his outstanding result. Usually students after 12th look forward to pursue their higher education. But you’ll be shocked to know the decision this boy has taken for his future. He has decided to become a Jain monk and leaving all the luxuries and delicacies of life. With the proper consent of his family, who follow Jainism, Varshil will be taking Diksha soon and forging ahead on the path of becoming a Jain monk. It doesnt seem that shocking after knowing more about his home and family as he comes from a very simple and grounded family. They believe in the virtue of “simple living and high thinking” and for that matter they dont even have any electric items in their home, including television and fridge as they don’t want to waste the natural resources.
it’s a matter of immense proud that Varshil is choosing a sacred and peaceful path in his life but it is also sad for our nation as we’ll be losing a gem like him. We wish him lots of goodness and success in his life and may he inspire many more.
