a thought which caught my attention recently:
“success ka peecha math karo, excellence ka peecha karo,
success jhak maarke tera peecha kerega”
this is an aamir khan dialogue from 3 idiots, a movie I ve watched twice already.
I ve always loved simple philosophies and simple solutions. Its really a heart warmer to survive and strive in such a complicated world. My father tells me something quite frequently. “Stop chasing money, focus on work, and you will see money chasing you.” I wish if many people could see things this way [including me]. Actually this philosophy of his’ goes parallel with the 3 idiot philosophy, right?
I was a hard core nerd during my school days. I used to mug every stupid bit of passage that was given in the book. My exam papers would look like manuscripts of my text books. Its in college, things changed [I stopped studying :-)] passing was the only intention coz my mind was full of movies. My percentage flew down from the regular high school 90’s to glorious college 70’s. But I was happy. I wasn’t competitive in mind and I no more cared about how well my classmates scored!!
Madhavan s character in 3 idiots, farhan, reminded me of myself [definitely not the ragging part!!]. I did engineering when my mind was full of something else. Only towards the end of the course, I had a revelation that I should convince my parents about my interests. Job or higher studies would ve killed me by now. The three jobless years past college, has helped this idiot, find a little bit about himself.
I would never say engineering was a waste. I ve definitely enjoyed learning certain things. But good times were actually outside classrooms. After noon movies, combine study sessions and a lot of my little, precious, secrets [my life is definitely an open book, but certain pages are glued together!! :-)] some great friends, great memories………………………………………………….[I can go on and you can get bored]
Making the long story short, WATCH 3 IDIOTS..
No one s actually paying me for marketing this movie through my blog. I am saying this coz I think u would really love it. Let me know if you have an extra ticket!!! 🙂
