Whats wrong in being mediocre if you are satisfied with your life...
asks Sirius Black in response to my post Software roulette
Well, nothing, I guess. You can go through life like a 20 W bulb, dim and feeble. Or you can find purpose, glow from inside and be like a 100 w bulb, lighting up the world you live in.
I came across this beautiful (very short) story by Novoneel Chakraborty. A conversation between an MBA and a 'struggling actor'. The MBA advises the struggler to first get a job and this is what the actor replies:
"Have you ever seen a star studded sky?”
“You may like the star just above your head or the one in the right or to the left perhaps but you got no right to question why the star to the left is in the left.
I believe the point of our living is to find the coordinates where we know we belong and respect it irrespective of whatever difficulties or humiliation we encounter.”
Beautifully said. Where to start looking for these co-ordinates.. well, we'll keep discussing that on this blog!
