We often quote “system kills talent”! The stringent dogmas of society & bureaucracy of the system is what makes you Ved (Ranbir From Tamasha) &unlike Ved most of us never find our Tara to resolve that dissonance of self.(sadly only few understood the movie on those level)
The question is does talent survive LIFE? To be brutally honest, can talent flourish in Life which fails to nourish your actual self…
Well, earlier I would have said NO! It is not only hard but nearly impossible when your opportunities, options & choices are limited by your own family & society!
But today your passion can thrive with your “virtual self”. With advent of technology, you have two lives & your talent can not only breathe with your parallel reality but can become your LIFE. Imagine your Talent can be your life!
While exploring Quora I found another tragic Ved- Pritam Kumar, whose savior TARA, was internet/quora. Pritam Kumar is a quora sensation, whose real-life experience has become the talk of the town & his pragmatic perspective for education or answering coding questions is extremely impressive. Without any formal education or training Pritam ji is the answer to how Internet can transform life. Sir you inspire me! ‘Sir’ because you chose to fight & you stood for your dream. You have set an example for millions out there. Pritam ji you are what India needs, your courage is liberating.
Perhaps if the education system kills many from inside, they also produce brilliance like Pritam Kumar, who are re-writing the rules for education, training & transforming ironies of life in foundation for life.
Another legend in making. Wishing Pritam Ji well & all the blessings from a co-passenger in the journey. When Virtual Voyage began, it looked like never-ending battle against the system & society.. Today I can see we are indeed moving forward with the dreams of thousands sheltered under our commitment to win all the odds.
