18th February 2008 :: The future is bright

I was reading an interview of Ranbir Kapoor and he mentioned that he along with one of his uncle is considered the “educated ones” in the family. He has passed class XII and his uncle class VIII. I am not sure if he was serious or not but one thing is for sure that there are a lot of people who are very successful with little formal education including Sachin Tendulkar who started playing cricket even before he finished school. Depending on your point of view, you may find it encouraging or a worry. As for these kids living near a dhobi ghaat with bleak prospects of reaching college, it is definitely encouraging. Is it just me or do they really fancy their chances of walking the ramp one day soon enough.

BTW, if you are among the people in the worried category, I'd like to remind you that Akbar—probably one of the most successful ruler of India was illiterate and had in his court “the navrathnas” (nine gems) the most educated people in nine fields.
