They say you can see light even in darkness. You need to be positive to keep going in times of adversity. You need to keep learning to keep growing.
1. India doesn’t suffer from bureaucratic red-tape. It is a figment of our imagination that government officials don’t work. All it takes is to write letters to Delhi Police, Prime Minister, Chief Justice of Supreme Court, CBI Director and everyone swings to action in a day. The CBI Director will even meet your wife and action on her complaint immediately and bring the corrupt to the book within hours. Is Arvind Kejriwal and India Against Corruption watching?
2. Beards grow by singing songs. Whatever may be your state of mind, if you are in Rush, growing your facial hair (trimmed neatly) from a French-cut is very simple… Just start singing. But there is a catch… the moment you stop singing, it will be back being French. It is a “con”tinuous process. Who knows, maybe we need to keep singing songs around our paddy and wheat fields, to ensure them growing... Just a thought!
3. Gandhigiri. You need to close your senses to everything… basically boora mat dekho, boora mat soono and boora mat bolo… and you will be offered loads of money (Rs1.25 crores to be precise), a penthouse and a BMW. You will get into trouble the moment you see boora (hidden video cassettes), listen boora (hear from an old colleague who is being chased all around Delhi) and talk boora (what others don’t like, obviously).
4. Once Upon a Time in Mumbai 2. Aditya Pancholi was once a Hero… now has stained teeth and a pot-belly. Sagarika Ghatge scored the winning goal in Chak De India and was fit and fine… now is fat and fine. Neha Dhupia had once said “in Bollywood only sex and SRK sells”… she still seems to believe in being a sexy belle.
5. Friend in need is a friend in deed. You lose your job, sulk at a pub… you receive a call and an offer you can’t resist… She is a Friend in need. You see a erstwhile colleague on a video, try calling his number… unreachable. Suddenly, he meets you at the parking of your building… tells you of all his secrets and warns you of your future… He is a Friend in deed. You rock on your assignment, celebrate your success at the pub… you have charmed your Friend to make an offer and you can’t refuse… You are Emraan “KISSme”, uhh… I mean Hashmi.
6. Free lunches come at a price. The protagonist is served on a platter his dream role with grand perks but has to forego his work ethics. I am offered a free ticket and I Rush through the Mumbai traffic on a Saturday evening… what did I forego??? A Saturday evening!!!
7. Fukra. Fukra is a Punjabi word used for someone who talks big but doesn’t do too much. A hitman talk of killing a BIG Man but he doesn’t. A journalist talk of getting his BIG Prime Time Story but it isn’t. So, Rush toh hain… Ahem! Ahem!
