I happened to go to a local park with a few close friends today. Walking by, I saw a group there which was practising a few dance stunts like Headstand, cart-wheel, etc. They were doing it on the lawn…!!! I could only observe n acknowledge the group for the sheer gut n enthusiasm with which the practise was on. Okay, so, their stunts were really cool n all that…!!! The point I want to make here is the Passion they had for the dance.
I am a dancer. I have my likings in folk-style of dances. But I’ve never ever been that passionate about dance or for that matter, about anything else. I could be a better dancer than what I am, if I’d taken the dancing seriously. I always had my share of excuses for not attending the dance class or learning new dance forms in particular. Excuses like, “noo yaar, I gotta study”, “I don’t like these kinds of danceforms”, “Can we do it sometime later” and blah…!!! Okay, forget my dancing interests! But that wannabe group left me awestruck today. They might not have got a proper hall or enough free space to practise maybe…! Maybe they had a lack of funds. But that supposedly never took their spirit away. They chose to practise on those lawns. And plus, they really got a naturally smooth surface for stunts. This is how possibly the best success stories are written. And it’s not only about dance as such. The spirit lies there, common to many of those who dream, nurture their dreams, strive hard and bring those dreams into reality. Someone’s correctly said, “Chaah ho toh raah nikal hii aatii hain”. I got my lesson too. There are no excuses for anything that you want to achieve in life. What you need is a great passion and a lot of hardwork…!!! I wish those guys all the very best in all their endeavours!
