Ram Charan on his recent near death experience during shooting at Goa Added on Oct 22, 2011 Ram Charan had a near death experience while shooting in Goa for his forth-coming movie ‘Raccha’. The cable broke and made him land on the train tracks where the chain of the train had to be pulled for it to stop. Ram Charan thanks Ayyapa Swamy for this, as he was serving his deeksha mala during this time. Wearing the mala has changed his life - this is the 7th time I did it. It taught me how to stay grounded and how luxuries in life aren’t as important as the state of mind we are in. It has made me calmer and has improved my focus and concentration. The recent trip to Shabrimalai was also great. I went with my two close friends, apart from the trek the satisfaction and sense of fulfillment at the end of the journey was something that will keep me going for quite a while now. It’s something I recommend to all the youth and businessmen – it helps bring about a balance in life along with a lot of peace of mind. My work didn’t stop during this time and I feel my concentration and focus is at another level after this experience.
