I guess you know how much I love movies! While most people watch movies for Entertainment and others think that movies are waste of time, I watch movies to learn life lessons too. Infact I’ve learned many valuable lessons from different movies I watched. Wish I could share all those lessons with you (may be I will someday). But today let me share lessons from 3 South Indian movies I watched recently – Kick, Nayak and Mirchi. Keep reading, I am sure you’d love it.
Don’t you think every single one of us go through some phases when we feel lost and alone? Trust me, even if we can’t eliminate these phases completely from our lives, we can learn to deal with it. I asked my Facebook friends, “What do you do when you feel lost and alone?” Got some fascinating answers. I’ll share some of those. I loved the answers, I am sure you will too. As every one of us are different, our ways of dealing with our tough times are different too. So you might not want to apply all the points, but some points will surely give you some ideas to deal with these phases better.
I was considered normal as long as I was walking the road of life according to what others decided for me. But from the day, I started following my own heart, people around me (yes my parents too) started considering me not-normal ( just because abnormal sounds too rude). How can a normal person (according to them), leave academics after passing out from two of the finest institutions of our country ( read ‘Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission’ & ‘Shibpur BE College’)? How can a normal Bengali boy decide to start own business instead of going for MNC / Govt. jobs? ( Don’t you know that God declared in an ancient pamphlet “Bongs can’t do business”?)
You know whatever I am today, I owe the credit to many people from different walks of life who has been my inspiration throughout my journey. And among those, one of the most important person is Sachin Tendulkar. I can give you 100 reasons for that. But let’s just limit my gratitude to him with most important three things.
Thank God my friend Anand Brian sent me to this video! This young guy Varun Agarwal is a real inspiration. When most of the children in our country are being brainwashed by their parents and society to become an Engineer (remember the movie 3 Idiots?), no matter whether they have any interest or not, Varun’s story will be a ray of hope and source of strength for youngsters who want to follow their heart instead.
How can I have a blog to inspire people and I don’t mention the living legend of our time Sachin Tendulkar? If you listened to his farewell speech today or missed it, I’m sure you will be looking for the transcripts & video recording of this memorable speech to keep with you forever. So here it is! A man who followed his passion, stayed human & humble inspite of Godly fame, built wonderful relationships both inside & outside his own family, again taught the lesson of ‘gratitude’ in this final speech.
