Every one of us has unique talent. Some people are able to identify this at a younger age but some don’t.
Doing what your parents want and doing what which you like always confuses every young person in India. This happened with famous Indian music composers Sachin-Jigar.
You will be surprised to know that both of them were supposed to do CA or MBA because of their parent’s profession / choice, and not exactly music.
In one of the interview with The Hindu, Sachin shared the wonderful story about how they chose music as their career.
I think commerce happened to us but music was always there. My father was a CA and I was going to be a CA like him. Jigar wanted to do his MBA. We weren’t able to identify that music was our passion.
We always thought that music to karenge hi na, masti ke liye… (Music is always there for entertainment). We never thought it would become our profession. Fifteen years back, it meant a lot of courage for our parents to have that vision.
When there were no Indian Idols, when everybody was saying that they have wasted their child’s future, against all the odds, they let us identify and pursue our passion. They let us settle down. We owe all of it to our family, and now to our wives.
That’s really a 3 Idiiots movie moment. That’s great of you Sachin-Jigar. This will encourage other parents – kids to opt career as per choice not by force.
