Its true that life is usually taken by students as a race. I am not saying that parents are the ones who think that life is a race and their child should run fast to win. Sometimes, or in my case, most of the times it is the child himself who thinks that life is a race. It happens when the child grows in an environment which is unaware of what is happening outside. It happens when society does not know or never acknowledges that every kind of interest that a child shows can be converted into a potential career path. Peer pressure is also a factor. I am saying so confidently because all these factors contributed in my case.
And we were not fortunate enough. We never had any perfectionist like Aamir Khan in our times, who first tries to stress that imagination and creativity within a child knows no bound in “Taare Zameen Par” and then later, does a Rancho, and tells that “Aaal izz well”. With the portrayal of Baba Ranchhod das, Aamir has proved that its not just popularity, style, talent or hard work, which makes somebody a perfectionist. Its also a feeling of responsibility which makes Aamir Khan ‘the Aamir Khan’. Around 21 years ago, we saw him in “Qayamat se Qayamat tak” playing a guy who has just passed out from college and now after 11 years, we see him playing a guy who has just entered college. And we don’t see any change in the appearance. Yes makeup does a lot of work but its actually the energy level of the actor which helps him displaying such a portrayal. Hats off to Aamir. With movies like “Taare Zameen Par” he has also shown that how much sense of responsibility he is having.
