Passion never fails

“Kisi aur se pyar karne se pehle, khud se pyar karna seekho... Long term mein yahi kaam aayega” This quote from ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ holds deep meaning and there’s a lot we can learn from this. Only by loving ourselves and fulfilling our own passions can we be ready to share our happiness with others. Following your dreams and doing something you are truly passionate about can only lead you to a bright future.

A great example of following your dreams and living out your passion is Bunny in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. He strongly believed in doing a job that he was passionate about rather than settling for a monotonous office job. His dream was to wander and travel the world, and he did just that when he set off to become a videographer for a travel show. The best part about Bunny was that throughout the film we see how he is deeply in touch with his inner self. He knows what he wants and always follows his heart to achieve what’s best for him.

In ‘Wake Up Sid’, we see Aisha Banerjee an aspiring writer determined to live her dreams. She follows her passion, comes to the city and lands a job with Bombay Beat, a hip magazine. Also, she makes Sid realize his passion for photography and helps him become a photography intern for the magazine she works for. After he gets hired as full-time staff and receives his first pay check, he proudly meets his father and the two reconcile. By listening to Aisha’s advice and working in a field that he is passionate about, Sid transforms from a childish boy with no ambitions in life, into a respectable and independent man.

And finally, one of the finest examples of how passion never fails can be seen in ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’. Kareena Kapoor Khan plays the role of ‘Dia Sharma’, a social worker who strives hard to having her dream of building an orphanage realised. Come hail or shine, Dia is adamant to stay true to her passion of helping people and does whatever it takes to fight for the people’s rights. She even sacrifices her love when she feels Sriram Venkat (Imran Khan) isn’t supportive of her towards her cause.

In a country where our parents often have their own ideology of our future career, it can be difficult to do something we are passionate about. But the truth be told, we can only truly be content if we follow our dreams and take up a career we are passionate about. After all, passion never fails.
