A piece of inspiration from the film “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”

I’m talking about the title song of the film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag , “Zinda, hain toh, pyala, poora bhar le” The words Prasoon Joshi has written are so magical (as always) & inspiring that I really was thinking how to explain its inspirational effect when every phrase has so much meaning & depth in it but one phrase that got me particularly thinking in from the film is the one below Koyla kaala hai Chattanon ne paala Andar kaala, baahar kaala Par saccha hai saala When I try to interpret the above line, I feel he talks about being true...

A great film on persistence “Andy Dufrense who crawled through a river of shit & came out clean on the other side. “

  The above line is from the film The Shaw shank Redemption that is narrated by Morgan Freeman who plays a character called “Red”.

How Sylvester Stallone made Rocky – A great lesson

We all have seen the Rocky series and we all love them. The story behind how Sylvester Stallone made rocky is even more inspiring than the film. Before he got into the film business he was completely broke and out of work. The only thing he knew was that he wanted to be in the movie business but whenever he went around for audition he was told he was stupid looking and did not know how to speak. He went to more than 1500 agents even though there aren’t that many agents as he revisited the same ones repeatedly. He...
