Yet another ambitious guy falling for DOGMA :(


Early morning when I was half asleep got a call from a friend who is several years junior to me… I’ve known this kid for almost 10 years and he has never even entered his teen… He called me to inform me that he has completed his graduation and he is working as a lecturer… First I couldn’t believe my eyes to see the kid taking up a job and that to as a lecturer…

Second I was surprised and saddened to see him taking up a job…I’ve known this guy to be independent, rebellious, notorious, brave, and huge passion for movies… Almost every day he lived for movies and he can replicate personalities and dialogues… His aim was to become a Cinema Director…

Today when I was talking to him I told him I couldn’t believe how come he be a good lecturer as he himself was notorious and uncontrollable and also how he can give up his dream so easily…

His instant reply was to please his parents for two years and after two years he wanted to pursue his dream… Though I was not convinced and pleased… I told him he is making his life complicated and told he has fallen into the trap… I advised him dreamers always need to start early before falling into any commitment or tasting the comfort zone…

He said he is firm that he would quit his job in 2 years and join movies and he wants to please his parents for 2 years… I didn’t want to advice him much and wrapped the conversation by wishing him luck in his career and prayers for not falling into DOGMA…

What is DOGMA??
Dogma is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

From the morning I’m deeply disturbed because I know think guy had deep talent and he would have made it big in Movies… Yet another year and yet another case of a person falling prey to the trap laid by mediocre parents…

  1. Interesting read Anand,not everyone who dreams has the courage to chase it and there are multiple circumstances which might have forced him…Having said that if his passion it true then it will lead him to Cinema 🙂
