I have always been aware of two very distinct parts of me-SB and SC. Though dramatically different, somethings have remained the same, after all there is but one figurehead-I. Neither characters have aspired for much, both could easily spend their lives, sitting by the side of a lake, staring into nothingness.
But unfortunately, one is very egoistic and the other a bit too emotional. So while one believes, ‘success is the best form of revenge’ and has a list of people she wants to pay back with interest, the other finds herself wanting to fit into her brother’s shoes. In a world, where you’re repeatedly taught to be less than you are, where the education system teaches you to be workers, rather than creators; where women especially are given less choices than men, one finds oneself to be in a blessed position.
To be given the ability and the will to first be able to take an enormous amount of criticism, from all quarters, requires (well I have my childhood to thank for that, it was my boot camp) one to be ‘dheet’. To be in a position where God asks you to make a choice between what you love and your responsibilities…to be able to choose both, is a blessing. Well, what can I say some of us want everything! For now one’s choosing to be the jack of all trades, who knows what will happen later. Like they say, ‘ Jo kucch diya gaya he uske bhalle bhandari bano!’
