Yeah, there’s a movie by this name directed by N. Chandra and this post is inspired by the movie. The very first line of the movie says that “Only GOD can run such a secular country”. It portrays the lifestyle of Mumbai by showing it through the eyes of different yet connected people. I don’t want to deviate and go into the details of the movie. Refer the wiki for more information on the movie. The movie shows how each character realized his mistake and transformed into a good man.
This movie reignited the spark in me to do something for the society. With our such a high paced lifestyles, we have made ourselves immune to the outside world and just discard the negative things. We observe so many things yet are silent even though we are supposed to be the most educated people.
What are the odds that you would stop a car and take a bleeding man to the hospital thereby allow your “precious” time to be wasted ?
What are the odds that you will stop a girl getting raped ?
These are just some of the questions going in my mind and who knows I may turn out to be the person who doesn’t stop the car ?The society has made us adapt to the high paced lifestyle that we are always after the “money” and where does that money go ? You earn more then you desire for more. But what’s the use of working so much that you don’t have time to enjoy the joys of living. Life is short, so live it to the fullest.
Though I am going to intern in Cisco this summer and will be one of those high paying software professionals who don’t have the time to spend what they earn. I am sure this internship will be a life changing experience 🙂
