Hello Guys! Welcome back to my Blog!
Today, I'm going to write about something that was quoted by one of my favorite actors, Sushant Singh Rajput. This two-liner quote has been revolving around my head ever since I read it in a blog. So, I had to write about it.
To be able to make statements, you need to be confident about what you think. You need to have a sense of right & wrong. - Sushant Singh Rajput.
A Son, a brother, a friend, a partner, a role model, a writer, a mentor, an engineer, and an actor, Sushant Singh Rajput, who has won millions of hearts through not only his films but also with his intellectual mind. He was someone who entertained us, cheered us, taught us to read between the lines, and left us with a lot of lessons and tears. People who knew him, say that he had a very different and unique approach to a lot of things. The prospect of his uniqueness always had a glance in his performance.
He was a very courageous and passionate man who took risks, just to follow his dreams. He was a National Level Olympiad Winner in Physics. He was a ranker (7th rank) at All India Engineering Entrance Exams (AIEEE). Simultaneously, he was also pursuing dance and drama. It was just a matter of time before he realized that he had established an interest in performing arts. So, he decided to go after his passion. He dropped out of engineering college and devoted himself to dancing and acting.
To have a cerebral perspective takes a lot of courage and sanity from within.
Just like he quoted, 'One must have a sense of right & wrong', he certainly proved it. It is very true because, without it, we ignore the importance of making crucial decisions in life.
I, for one, have watched some of his movies and I can be sure that there wasn't a single moment or a shot where I was disappointed. He was very good at portraying the vulnerable side of a character. The intensity with which he used to perform was unquestionable. Flawless is the word.
In 2016, Sushant was invited as a guest speaker in IIT Bombay where he gave one of the amazing speeches. He talked about his life & career. He shared his ups and downs. He also spoke about his struggle and how he entered the entertainment industry. One thing he said; caught my ears, when he expressed his definition of Happiness.
All my life I've been told that, once I get money and fame, it will lead me to the utmost happiness. But while I was getting all of it, I didn't feel happy. People expect you to be happy because you're supposed to be. But it doesn't work that way. I figured that something seemingly big things was not that big, once I got them. Looking back in the past I realized that maybe smaller things were way bigger.
There are so many theories about his death. Some are true, some are false. We don’t know what to say or believe. And to be honest, we don't have any right to vouch on this issue per se because the only person who knows the truth is he, himself.
All I can say is that he did not die in vain. He inspired a lot of people through his movies and still continues to do that.
And as for the message we should take from Sushant's life story is that we should be responsible enough to understand the significance of Mental Health. For what it's worth I believe that Happiness is something that comes from the stability of our Mental Health and Inner peace; not from money or fame or any other materialistic factors.
I've always admired Sushant Singh for his work, talent, and a beautiful mind. But, let's hear it from the heart of one of his biggest fans, Nikhil Bakshi, who wrote some amazing lines for him.
