Here I am back again with another blog. Lets meander before getting into the main topic!!
The beauty of my work is; I get a chance to meet new people ;awesome people and can converse with them on excellent topics. I met people who watch each and every movie released and people who watched 4 movies a day when they were young. They did an excellent research on film making and screen writing. People who can speak about plot points and conflict points for hours and people with new fascinating ideas.Indeed a great learning experience.
I was talking with a friend of mine recently; we met one month back and we became very good friends soon. I don’t why he thought so; I was talking with him about a girl and he suddenly said the the following words “ dude don’t get me wrong but I think you are not practical; you might have face troubles later!”. On the contrary I think i am a very practical fellow; when most my batchmates are boozing and celebrating their jobs in final year ; I was busy working on Anecdote; I remember I missed my farewell that movie editing and I have no regrets.Anyways the word practical is relative.
Lets take a classic example; we were discussing on this somedays ago; Suppose you have a crore with you and you have a story you worked on for 2 years. There are 2 cases. You invest everything and make a movie; you might loose all the money or gain some,or you can dropthe money in bank and forget about the story. As a practical fellow I will keep all the money on the story and will make the movie because for me time is more important than money. I invested an year which I cant get back; and the shear beauty of watching on screen gives me a higher energy to do bigger things even if I loose the money. And If I save the money I will be regretting all my life for the lost time. Same is the case about the girl; If I okay with some one I never knew and then after 20 years I feel I committed the biggest of my life I cant accept that. I am damn practical and I value my time. Thats the point..lol.
After all these so called practical people are filling the theatres to experience the melodrama missing in their life.. hence the telugu film industry is making proto types..lol
Okay lets get back to the topic. And as usual lets start with hard times!!
This is the story of a colleague of mine. This fellow’s father is a drunkard who does nothing. So his mother bought him up. And this fellow at the age of 19 got smitten by movies came to industry and started his trails to make a movie ( I am not going to say; he should help his Mom!! Lets cut down this drama of right and wrong). He confessed to me that he lived just pickles and papads on many days ; he used to drive cab’s at night and give trails in morning in the industry. And then I hear people complaining on life!! God save!! He told me a small concept on poverty and It was so damn original and so similar to ‘fight club’ ( definitely he didn’t see fight club) I was blown away.. hope to see some experiments in the future from this fellow!!
These are the hard times we cant avoid ; by gods grace I didn’t have any such trouble; And i hope I would never struggle like that. Now the other hard times are when people welcome them into their lives. I met a fellow recently who was a colleague of mine in IT field. He used to be very dynamic and a leader; I couldn’t recognize him when saw him now; grew beard and looking at the ceiling like a mad fellow and I heard that he attempted suicide all for a girl...pity we can suggest people but cant change any one unless they themselves wanna change. I just hope he recognizes everything soon and get back to his form!!
Till now I am venting out others troubles; its high time I write my own troubles. I got 4 days leave and I thought of visiting Kerala.. Plan was to visit chambray peak; trek 7 kms up and read for one hour near a heart shaped lake and get back. Tickets got booked easily even on the last minute!! To hometown and then to Chennai and finally Calicut. Then started trouble. Vomitings from the minute I got into Calicut. Proper fellow would have turned back. But I went up in s bus to Meppady and then trekked 2 more kms to trekking office where permission is to be taken to go up. Guess what there was a forest fire and they cancelled the trek. Damn damn.. and so; th never say die attitude forced me to go up; I travelled 20 kms up and trekked 6 more kms to have a lookat a cave ;and the worst thing is thats the worst cave I have seen. If some one suggests you to visit edakkal caves in wayanad; they are your secret enemies planning a revenge on you!! Take care. With all plans tumbled I returned back. and ofcourse they are no reservations available in return journey I had to travel in general for twelve hours and a fellow suffering from Fits sat next to me !! Real hard times huh..
But the best part is even then I never felt that I did a mistake in going alone; my brain was thinking to find a place which can be visited easily even though I am feeling weak!!. I suddenly felt a deep gratitude for my father for I definitely got this spirit from him!!
Well good times now!!
Here I am happily writing my blog in my recently rented pent house room. I am just blown away by the cool air blowing every evening; I am literally living in heaven . Of course Chennai Sea was much better. But to compare is logic less. Perfectly happy with Hyderabad. And especially my boss is a dude!! And I started playing gully cricket before the office !! What more can I ask for.
