Everyone have their own talent. Right?
Some found their and some still discovering …
But for me it was simple. At my v.young age I used to do poetry(shayari) .
People used to appreciate it. They used to say. Aww, how cute. She is so young and talented.
When I reached my tenth standard. I finally decided to pen it down.
And for people foodie like me it was v.tough to save money and buy a diary. However I managed to get it. I used to sit with my diary and scribble my thoughts. I was excited. It was all new for me. Exploring myself is such a great feeling.
And one day I decided to read out my poems to my family. I stay with my grandparents and a elder siso. My grandfather is a English lecturer and principal of reputed college of his times. So he is a serious kind of person. I gathered everyone and started reading with authentic excitement.
But suddenly grandfather said, “STOP!”. He asked, “WHO WROTE THAT, I KNOW ITS NOT YOU”. I replied in shock, “I wrote it”. He said, “NO, YOU ARE NOT CAPABLE OF WRITING SUCH ELEGANT POEMS”.
This line literally killed my inner self.
I went back to my room. Completely shattered. In that pain I took my diary and turned it to ashes.
A week passed, my sister came to me, asked, “where’s your diary?”.
I said,. “burnt, am never gonna write again”.
She explained, “So what if someone criticized ur work. If u are passionate about it. Do it”.
She handed me a diary and left.
There were 3 words written on it. NEVER GIVE UP
I opened it, sat in my solace, and wrote a 3 letter tittle. “M A A”
From there I not only started writing poetries I also write quotations.
At first I was excited. But now am hungry, to show what am capable of.
So finally, one of my quote is published and that book has won Vajra World Record. And am I certified writer now.
And my other write ups are also selected for another books.
I took my book and showed to my grandfather.
He had only one question. HOW?
The answer is simple. My pain turned into fire. That fire made me a record holder today.
Imagine what if I’d never have started writing again.
Definitely people will shower negative comments.
So let’s just put a off button to that section. And focus on ourselves. Bcoz, it’s you who matters at the end.
And guess what my grandfather said.
PROUD OF YOU, BETA!
