Believe in your cause, follow your truth and stick to your journey even if you have to walk the path on your own.

Gandhi at the end of his life was said to be heart broken with the partition of India as millions were killed and displaced. Even then, he still had a message for the world – it takes just one man to make a difference.

    If no one responds to your call, go forward alone.
    If no one talks to you, oh luckless one,
    If everyone turns away from you in fear,
    Reveal your thoughts and express your ideas to yourself.
    If everyone leaves you while you are travelling a dangerous road,
    If no one wants to look after you,
    Walk on alone, on the road strewn with thorns, trampling on them with bleeding feet.
    If no one shows a light, if in the dark stormy night everyone shuts their doors,
    Use your rib as a torch, lit from the fire of thunder.

– Rabindrantah Tagore

So anything and everything you do counts and will make a difference.

– Arvind Devalia
