Bollywood in India is not just an industry. It’s an emotion we all share, an emotion of expression, of freedom. and in some cases, even escape. Every Friday when a fresh movie hits the screens, thousands line up to catch a break, or live in stories. Bollywood influences our lives, style, ideology, and even the language we use daily. It’s this unique connect, that some movies touch our hearts and alter our thought process.
When it comes to making career decisions in our country, they are largely driven by our parents and relatives, friends and siblings, society, school, the age-old classic “log kya kahenge” and you know, just about everyone, barring yourself. It’s exactly at this juncture that everybody throws in their experiences, preferences, and opinions to pull an already confused mind in a hundred different directions.
Students in India are uniquely susceptible to ‘ved-atitis’, as elucidated in ‘Tamasha’, as a condition where an Individual feels extremely frustrated by the virtue of being thrown in career streams they don’t want to pursue.
Ved-atitis can be incredibly annoying, and in severe cases can result in loss of personality, end of dreams, and an unhappy post condition life.
How to cure “VED-A-TITIS”?
Through the “QURESHI” Treatment!
The cure to ved-atitis, is to pull off a Farhan Qureshi treatment (courtesy 3 Idiots) and speak your heart out to your parents on the interview day, and hope they’ll understand. Or you know, you can spare them the horror and the fortune they’ve spent on your education, by making the right career decision at the right time.
Both Tamasha and 3 Idiots weave around only one central theme – find yourself, do what you like, and follow your heart. But it’s easier said than done right? As a student, waiting to give just the most important exams of your life (no pressure :p ) what are you gonna do? Wait for an epiphany to discover yourself, or try ten different things to recognize your calling? Or do you have another solution?
