It is dream & not money that makes one resourceful

Rahul Dravid on Patience


When I’m requested to speak to youngsters I like talking about this phase of my life and liken it to fascinating plant: The Chinese Bamboo. You can take a Chinese bamboo seed and plant it in the ground, water and nurture the seed for an entire year & not even see a single sprout. Infact, you’ll not see a sprout for 5 years. But suddenly, a tiny shoot will spring from the ground. And over the next 6 weeks, the plant can grow as tall as 90 feet. It can grow as fast as 39 inches every 24 hours. You can literally watch the plant grow.

What was the plant doing during these 5 years, seemingly dormant period, it was growing its roots. For 5 full years it was preparing itself for rapid, full growth. Without this root structure, the plant simply couldn’t support itself for its future growth. Some would say the plant grew 90 feet in 6 weeks, I would say it grew 90 feet in 5 years & 6 weeks.

Unbelievably Chidambaram


Chidambaram is my native and I’ve been traveling to this place at least once a year.

As a kid it use to be dirty, congested and a very under developed town.

There were no auto rickshaw until I was 13 and no A/C theatre until I was 19.

Today there are fancy cars, Stage of art schools, super markets and what not.

Nice to see my native catching pace with development!!!

Visited this supermarket on the outskirts of the town. Surprised to see this because these were a luxury inside the town once and nice to see even the outskirts grow!!
