Coming a long way…

You can’t judge people by how far they have come…without knowing how far they have come from.


I have always found it erroneous to assess people solely by their current achievements, no matter how big or small they are. It is also important to see it in context of their background. Yes! Destinations have to be seen in reference to the journeys. Without that, it is difficult to put it all in the right perspective. And I firmly believe that a person should keep the same yardstick even while judging himself or herself.

The great composer Naushad had to struggle a lot in Bombay before he became a signature in music industry. He used to sleep on footpath opposite the Broadway cinema at Dadar. And when his legendary movie Baiju Bawra was released in 1952 at the same theater, as he crossed the road to reach the premiere, he started crying. When producer Vijay Bhatt asked the reason, he looked back at the road and said to him “You know Sir…It took me 16 years to cross this road”.


Well! When people say to you…“You have gone way ahead”. Only you know that actually… “You have come a long way!”
