Do you really want something or are expecting something to happen? Just don’t think about it. I say, just forget about it. What the hell am I saying?
Today, during English class, I read something really practical in “Three Men In A Boat” by Jerome K. Jerome. He says that when you put up a kettle to boil your tea and keep thinking about it and waiting eagerly for its whistle, you will not be able to hear the whistle. BUT if you just don’t think about it, it will make such a noise as if it wants to tell you that the tea has been prepared on its own. That sort of applies to real life. Expect the unexpected. As actress Alia Bhatt once said on a variety show that she got really pissed off in the day before the first day of shooting for her debut film, but, eventually, the movie became a success and that was something really unexpected. Yet, if you’re expecting something to happen VERY eagerly and are excited, how can you not think about it? A few months ago, I tried to order a manga from Flipkart. I love manga and was eagerly waiting for the book. Four weeks passed and they said that it was out of stock. You get it, now?
In December, last year, I made a decision to audition for a Korean entertainment agency. I was infuriated by SM Entertainment’s strict laws and how they’re known not to respect Indians. SM holds “Global” auditions every year in USA, China, Japan, Korea (obviously), Thailand and Canada. That’s not exactly global, is it? I sent them an angry e-mail, telling them that they should hold auditions in Delhi. I sent this email on 21st December 2013:
“Dear Audition Manager,
K-Poppers are not at all new in India, especially, in the capital, Delhi and the North East Region. There are so many talented Indian hopefuls in India who want to join SM and have a good base of English, Japanese, Korean or Chinese. I, too, am auditioning via mail. I know SM encourages people all around the world to challenge for their dream and gives a chance to all the talented people. As an Indian, I am requesting you to have a Live Audition in New Delhi, India. I guarantee that you will find great talents in our country.
Yours Sincerely,Sera Ria Gomes”
