Actor, director, producer who gave Indian cinema some cult classics is auteur Shekhar Kapur. Kapur may be a man of few words but his charismatic aura and the life lessons that he shares are worth a treasure! He is amongst those rare gems of India who shimmered in the global market. Amongst many of his entertainers, Elizabeth (1998) and The Golden Age (2007)) won him two Academy award nominations! What more can we say about this modernizer who gifted India with its first superhero, Mr. India.
Let us allow his tweets to speak for him.
That’s right. Unless you sow, you won’t be able to reap. Joy of giving is one such fruit that’s immensely saccharine.
This one may sound like a philosophical pill but at crux it is what life is. Uncertainty and impermanence is what is permanent in our lives, if we cash on it, we’d be a millionaire. Perhaps cash might not come to us but we’d have heaps of happiness.
Wonderfully put. The rustle of leafs is one miniscule voice amongst the raucous sounds of everyday life. What Kapur means by this is, be so generous and compassionate that even the most docile can reach out to you.
We all have been in love, at least we have felt that immense joy in our bosom. That overwhelming feeling. It may be the sound of a child’s laughter or perhaps the whisper of your lover, that feeling has been there and it has been the awesomest feeling ever!
You too would say, true that because art reflects our feelings. It is our feeling that shapes our talent. The works of Picasso, Blyton or even Einstein mirrored their feelings.
Like they say, universe keeps conspiring to give us what we aim for. If universe can be at play to give us the best of both worlds then we too should get going.
Every day is an adventure for each one of us, we wake up only to run towards our goals and ambitions. In all this running we forget to stop and breathe, we forget to live and love. And although we get what we’ve always wanted we lose the life race.
Plain and simple way to look at those nasty manipulators! When you happen to be in such a mess, just smile and say, get well soon, mamu!
And when you’d lose that individuality you’d attain the ultimate reality.
We often give up on our adventures and passions because we fear losing. If we became friends with fear, we’d never fail.
