Some more thoughts about Dev D

Posted on

Abhinav and me were discussing the movie… our fav scenes, fav moments, how scandalized Dhruv’s parents must have been since he watched it with them etc etc

I can identify with Dev’s character… there was a time in my life I lost my will power… I felt like I was getting sucked deeper deeper into a whirlpool but didn’t how to get out. My life revolved around one person… I lost all dignity, self respect… I felt horrible about myself… I wasn’t doing too well in studies also… I had friends… many of them but there was little they could do to help.
I don’t think there was one moment which made me realize I was wasting my time and life. I think it was MBA coaching… I started scoring well there and that gave a boost to my confidence. I felt better about myself. I guess we all lose control of our lives at some time or the other… specially when we are young and stupid.

When I joined the B-School my scores in exams were not good… but there were skills that I developed and whatever I did.. I did it with a passion. I hate my B-School… I had terrible times there… but after 2 yrs I got what I had gone there for… my preferred job… and thats all that matters.

One thing I have learned in life is persistence and passion… If I care I care deeply… and if I don’t nothing can make me care.
