Lot to learn from a Crime Patrol Episode
How many of you feel that you wish to do something; something small yet something big? Confused? I mean that zeal which drives you to do something small but what has a huge impact. What really do you need to have that passion in you? A degree from one of those hot-shot institutes? A strong recommendation? Is that the case always?
Just watch the two episodes aired on 14th and 15th Sept’13 of one of the best shows on Indian Television i.e. Crime Patrol. I’m not here for any propaganda, just watch them and you will know why. I wish to make it a point here that sometimes, in fact a lot of times, what really matters is that iron-will in you to achieve a feat in life; everything else follows. Life is not a bed of roses; it never was, never will it be. You will face challenges. You will have to struggle. You would come out a winner in life if you believe in what you do.
These episodes are the story of a young girl who pressed by her circumstances couldn’t study after 8th standard; as she turns 18 she joins a non-profit organization with motivation from her mother who works in another similar organization to fight for people’s rights. Her fight was not a smooth one. She had to fight for her life. But she was determined to what she thought was right. What all issues she took up would make for another matter of discussion; I would restrict here myself with other aspects. This is not to demean any educational or professional affiliation of anybody but to highlight the sparking role that the commitment of a person plays. Under able guidance and training as was the case in the above mentioned episodes, with determination one can do wonders. Don’t you wonder with so many students doing same courses and having similar profiles, how difficult it may be for employers to choose who would the best person be for the concerned job position?
Oh, I know there are recruitment tests and interviews too. But there’s still something missing. We do not need assembly-line production. We need to have more innovative systems to discover as well as recruit the most proficient persons in respective fields. How many of those with settled jobs feel contended? We need such frameworks that can test for perseverance and a sustained training-like condition where a person can be judged for specific skill-set and interests. It must be there in phases, so a person herself or himself can evolve and discover her or his own traits. We do not need pyramid-like structure where one instructs other just follows. We need a leader in every person. Leadership is not domination and giving orders. It’s what motivates people. It’s what makes you believe in a vision. It’s what lets you function in a collaborative manner. Just ponder over, it might be time taking process; but definitely worth it. You don’t get your diamonds that easy!
