I asked this question to myself when I started the mission to find
my inner fire. â€œI am Narita.â€ That was my first answer. A voice
inside me said, â€œThis is my name, this is not ME.â€ I was baffled
at the truthfulness of the reply. I tried giving a different answer, â€œI
am a confident, independent girl.â€ This answer was also rejected
by my inner voice saying that â€˜girlâ€™ is my gender and â€˜confident,
independentâ€™ are my qualities, none of them are ME. I tried one
last time to prove myself correct. I was sure this time I would win.
I stood in front of a mirror and said proudly to my inner self, â€˜Hey
look, this is MEâ€™. I heard a mild laugh blended in the reply, â€œThis is
my body; this is not ME either.â€ I was taken aback by the profound
replies I received each time. The simple question, â€œWho am Iâ€ left
me feeling incapacitated. I was dismayed, probably you too are
right now, but more than that I was intrigued. If I am not what I
answered, then who exactly am I? Who would answer that for me?
If I did not know who I am, how could anyone else ever know or
understand who am I?
