I happen to listen to talk show on Vijay TV. ‘Kadai alla Nijam’ translates to ‘Its not a story its truth’. As i was scanning through the channels at 11.30 in the night, when one of my backup process was running on the laptop, “After every insult I knew I was breaking within, I also knew that I was becoming weaker. Then I knew there was only one alternative. To get stronger. ” this statement made me pause.
There was a talk with Murali, on tamil film hero. He was narrating his real life experiences, in the film industry. He was of a very dark complexion and hence he was ridiculed and treated badly when he came into the industry. Today you see every other next door person becoming a hero, but couple of years back, white skin was very crucial for qualifying as a hero.
The chat was only for few minutes ( or may be i got it when it was ending) was so sensible and so truthful it touched my senses. There was a question, “so after you became successful, did you take revenge of those who insulted you” he says, “I don’t believe in taking revenge. I did not want to show any of them anything, or prove anything to anyone. All I wanted is to do my own job well. But when they came to me for booking me as a hero when i got popular, instead of saying a no, when I obliged with a smile, I think I won.”
To a question on what is success “ i dont know actually, since I did not take heed of failure or didnt keep tag of success, I don’t know what success is..”
Such good thoughts, from a simple hero.. i mean you keep you eyes and ears open, the world out their will teach you every bit of life and living…
