More Einstein Inspiration

The world was really blessed when people like Albert Einstein were born, who gave so much to the world, so much to learn, so much to see. People like him have an extraordinary vision and out of the box thinking. He was so inspiring, his quotes and his works. His one such quote still inspires many, but also taunts the education system in some areas.

I live in India and I’m a student, so I’ve observed how the education system has been here. It’s like a fixed path, walking on which is a necessity. The blurry epitome of the system is that you’ve got to get your undergraduate degrees so that you may pursue what you want, till then, you go with the crowd. It’s not 100% true before some people disagree to it, but for most of the part it is.

There are numerous people with special talents in India, and understandably so being the second largest populated country in the world. But some of those, don’t have resources, some don’t get to show it due to the present system and those who have the resources, the money and all the extra facilities are the ones who are not so special. Ironical a bit, but yes.

I may not be too experienced or old to comment more on my country’s education system, which is thankfully getting a bit better but at a slow pace, so I would just come back to Einstein.

Albert Einstein was an ocean of knowledge and is acknowledged by the whole world for his tremendous works in the field of science. But the man was more than just science, he knew about the world, he understood it. He understood people’s minds. And that’s why he said this amazing quote:Please-climb-that-tree1

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

A quote which always inspires and will continue to do so.

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

I finished reading this book ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ by Robin Sharma and I would say that it is a treasure for anyone who’s seeking peace and true happiness in life.

The book presents a fable about life which is learnt by a successful lawyer who had all the materialistic leisure yet was unsatisfied and working continuously made him both physically and mentally weak. He decides to drop his occupation and find true peace and eternal happiness. His voyage to the east and then to the Himalayas finds him his treasure and the true meaning of life. He then tells all about this to his friend who was his colleague and the closest person to him.

Well, that was the short summary but it does not have the treasure which one can only find after reading this book. I had heard a lot about Robin Sharma that he writes motivational books and reading his books can make a good deal of difference. The way he states the ways which can make our lives truly beautiful and we can find spiritual satisfaction which we all lack.

The book also instructs about how we can manage our lives more efficiently and plan our goals. The world is a busy place, and the people are the cause of it. We humans are being so engaged in our work to find materialistic leisure that we have forgotten that spiritual happiness is true happiness. We have forgot to chase our real dreams and the reality of this world, that even if a person is rich and has all the needs fulfilled, he is not necessarily happy.

Some books spread knowledge and enlighten the path to success and a better life. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is one such sublime book. I would suggest it to everyone, and especially those who are frustrated with life and seek for ways to embrace it. It was amazing to read it, an exquisite experience really. I mean, how can just one fable unlock the treasure to a purposeful life.

Robin Sharma is a well known author and is well known for inspirational and motivational writing.This book proves why and I would love to read more of his books and I sure will. I really wish he could read this but maybe it’s not possible for now. This book is no doubt, a bestseller, and now I know how and why.

There’s also one quote in the books which really moved me:

“There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. There is no such thing as a negative experience, only opportunities to grow, learn and advance along the road to self-mastery.” – Robin Sharma

Whiplash

It’s not really the free time that I was hoping for myself to get, I am still busy with important things therefore not able to post regularly as I hoped to. Yet, I took some time out to post about the ‘SOME’ amazing things I watch and come across to.

Yesterday, I was watching this movie – Whiplash. I found that it was a masterpiece. Maybe this genre suits me the best or I guess, that I have a bit out of the line opinion about movies that it is not necessary for them to have action, stunts, special effects and other stuff that usually everyone is crazy about. I mean they are not bad, but it’s not always necessary to make the movie special.

Whiplash is a masterpiece directed by Damien Chazelle which was released in 2014. The last time I posted about the movie Boyhood which had this special thing that it was shot over 12 years and under keen observation of stages of life. And THIS amazing movie by Damien was shot over just a period of 19 days. I mean it forces us into thinking that what all would have they done to make something so special in just 19 days.

I adored the movie not because it was shot over 19 days or something, but when I watched it, it somewhat made me think differently – out of the box. It also has this amazing moral inside it that how practice can change you and you don’t really have to care about others if you really want something yourself. It’s all just self-made attempts to polish your skills and make yourself determined.

Well, the movie is about Jazz music, but this all ran in my mind, kind of like a source-code. It also highlights a story of a strict and abusive instructor and a focused and desirable student who wants to be the best Jazz drummer in the world.

Well, the extent of how epic it is would only be determined once you watch it as I would suggest everyone to watch it, especially to those who search for other things in a movie than action and special effects.

Also, one more astounding fact about the movie is that the direct Damien Chazelle was injured in between the making of the film in a car accident and was hospitalized yet he came back as early as he could and completed the film. Also, great appreciation for J.K.Simmons for an absolutely sublime performance and also lead actor Miles Teller. Damien at the time of the making made it clear to Simmons that he wanted to see something extraordinary and I quote “I want you to take it past what you think the normal limit would be. I don’t want to see a human being on-screen anymore. I want to see a monster, a gargoyle, an animal.”

All I want to say is that there’s no shortage of wonders in this world, great men do great things and we, people have to learn and have that vision to learn.
