We never know at what point of life we get inspired and any stranger can charge us with the zest and zeal which sometimes we fail to carry with us.
Something as such happened to me last Saturday morning. I am thankful to my friend who invited me to have the glimpses of a small shoot which he was carrying out with his team at a place close to my residence. At the shooting location I met this lady, she was the female protagonist of the ad-film. I believe she must be above sixty, just a little guess from the wrinkled skin and grey hair otherwise the enthusiasm and energy was no less than the curiosity of a small kid. I don’t know but in her presence I could feel the positivity in the air. Some strange calmness and satisfaction I could read on her face, and may god continue to shower upon her all his blessings.
I asked her for how long is she into this? And she said she was into Govt. service for a long time but continued with acting in parallel platform.
And rest she continued herself watching my curiosity.
“Daughter, You know, what these boys are doing, at this age of life this should be only done. They are doing full justice to their young energy; this time will never come back. I did lots and lots of work, I don’t know how I managed then? Two kids, family, service and then acting, but I never said No to work! Never. Whenever anybody offered me any effective assignment, I accepted it and automatically I was able to manage the time for the schedule in my twenty four hours. Oh! What a life! It is so wonderful and blessed.”
Radiance of her face was speaking of the proud she possessed by adding correct rhythm to her life.
And her only mantra is that she never said no to work. Acting is her passion so she never denied any offer due to hectic schedule and domestic responsibilities. She got the same twenty four hours a day which we all share but she is successful to drive its utility because it is her belief that work offered to her can’t be left incomplete.
That satisfaction and smile, I think we all aim to have the same one. In search of the same satisfaction we drive towards every known and unknown path of life and try to figure out our happiness. But she taught me that the moment we start feeling the vibration of every single second of life and start enjoying it instead of escaping from it, we can get the same smile and radiant face.
We come across amazing motivational personalities almost daily through various means, but for me this little interaction with her was special. Sometimes in the pre-calculated mechanics of life the grip over its musical beats starts missing and then suddenly we come across someone who teaches us once again to dance on the rhythm of life and enjoy as many aspects of it. Moreover, we are living creatures created by God not machines designed by us.
