Friday afternoon, I came home early to have lunch and watch the market from my home. While I was on the screen, in the next room my wife had switched on the TV where Rishi Kapoor and his son, Ranbir Kapoor were speaking at the HT leadership summit. I could hear their voice while watching the markets fall. Suddenly, I heard Rishi Kapoor speak out some remarkable thoughts. I am recollecting his words:
"My son Ranbir had decided to enter the film industry. He told his mother that he wanted to be in films. When I heard his wishes, I said that Ranbir should do a course related to the film business. There is no sense in making him do engineering or management in anticipation that if he fails as an actor, he can then become an engineer / manager. People enter the film business because films are their passion. If he fails as an actor, he may become an editor, a director, producer or even a spot boy, but he will remain in films. So, let him acquire the skills of films rather than study some other subject"
When I heards these words, I realized that we, traders are in trading because this is our passion. We may make money, may not make money, but we continue since this is what we enjoy doing most.
Reader thoughts are welcome.
