Chaah ho toh…

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!

    Ummm…Partially agree to it..But then again, sirf chaahne se sab kuch nahi hota, you need to have a mapping between your capabilities and your ambitions..

    See, whether you achieve your goals, accomplish your ambitions is a different story… The point which I want to stress upon is, "If you want something desperately, then nothing should deter you from trying for it" Efforts toh lene chahiye… aur usme excuses nahii ho to hii behatar hain. Excuses aaye toh matlab ye huaa kii you're not ready to give your 100%

    "But I've never ever been that passionate about dance or for that matter, about anything else"define passion:"Passion: A strong emotion as love, joy or hatred.." We relate Passion with desperation.But does the excitement and the desperation last long enough? And what does it leave behind with us when we lose it? Frustration of not feeling the same pull towards the thing we loved so intensely? Isn't it the understanding about things and the realizations that once hit us, hit us forever? Like you said, work hard towards achieving what we want with honesty. But its not easy to correctly recognize what we REALLY want.what you think?PS: I did get your point of Chaah hai toh raah hai. N there's no denying that.

    Hey Pankhuri, Thanks for replying…!!!I would simply define passion as something which gives me inner joy, which I naturally like to do maybe 'coz 'm good at it.As you pointed out, I've not considered the case wherein we recognize what we really want. But the intent of the post is something else. In the example that I've given, the boys had crossed the stage of realizing what they want. They definitely know what they want and so they're working hard towards achieving it. Realizing what you want and doing nothing about it is as good as not realizing it. Plus, now that they're trying, it does not matter whether they succeed or not! It's the fire in them that took my breath away. It's the desperation, a sense of strong will, which made them go out of their ways to try something they want and hence made me write this post.

    haha! i can imagine…you saw them in the park.. that scene touched you.. you wrote this post about it, mostly wearing a smile on your face. Instead of commenting on that joy that's there in your post, I ask you a pretty theoretical question, completely ignoring the spontaneous happiness you must have felt in the park 🙂 cheers to that joy that not only they felt but also passed on to others 🙂
