LOG KYA KAHENGE ? (What will people say)


The feeling of “log kya kahenge” is the biggest barrier that a common man in India has to face before doing anything. Great ideas to start a good enterprise or to do something better for the society is always stopped by this feeling.Many talents in India die only because of these three words.

To break this barrier is the toughest task. Even if the person sets out without bothering about this, then his parents and relatives will come along telling the same sutra. When a middle class guy decides to take up dancing or photography as a profession then the parents come in the picture saying “ log kya bolenge, dekho Sharmaji ka beta science lekar abroad mein padh raha hai.” 
There dies a talent…



His parents do not let him explore the world and find what he really is or what he could be.“ Agar padhoge nahi tho engineer kaise banoge, TCS ya Infosys mein job kaise milega…”
This is a common Indian middle class parent’s dialect.If your parents let you do what you really want to do, there comes a great army of relatives.This goes on….and talents are murdered everyday.

During class X they told us, “ Study hard now, you will get science in Class XI and XII”.
During Class XI “ Study hard now you will get an engineering seat and life will be settled.”
And now they repeat the same stuff.
Don’t think…..

Thinking always made us fail and feel sad because we never loved what we did.On a small note from a speech of Steve Jobs ending my words
“To do great work, love what you do. And if you have not found what you love keep looking….”

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
