Rashmi O Rashmi, Rush me, Don’t crush meFebruary 7, 2006
I have found Rashmi Bansal’s blog(on my blogroll-youth curry) one of my favorites as it has been consistently good. Rashmi Bansal’s review on “Rang De Basanti” is as great as the movie itself and seems to be the unanimous favorite; going by some of the posts “Rang De Basanti” also reminds one of the colorful holi scenes of the immortal classic, “Sholay” where actress Hema Malini is very colorful and boisterous as the character Basanti. “Sholay” got the best film in fifty years award from filmfare last year. It was technically and creatively a true classic, almost perfect from very angle. In every field, there are prodigies or “Sholays” like cricketer Sachin Tendulkar who was made to undergo baptism by fire at the age of 16 and is still playing. Following the “catch them young philosophy” , these people have to be spotted and nurtured early. I had the pleasure of watching the rise of a management prodigy who got three double promotions in one year and went on to build a big business in no time because he was spotted and encouraged by the chairman almost as soon as he joined. (“Rush-me”). I heard that a former test vetran was going to the small towns and villages to prevent the Tendulkars and Kapil-Devs from obscurity(Crush-me).
After six months of blogging , I am surprised that none of the top bloggers comment on budding bloggers for encouragement. Maybe they simply don’t have the time or blogiquette is different. A pity in our country which boasts of a “Guru-shishya paramapara”. I have seen Rashmi’s comments occasionally but she plays a symbolic role here as this is directed to the top shots:- My dear Rashmi,
It seems that with aspiring bloggers, you don’t want to be chummy,
Appreciation to a deserving aspirant is as food to an emaciated tummy.
A beginner in any field is like a baby, in need of a mummy.
There has to be some talent there, everyone cannot be a dummy.
You too were a beginner once, today you may be yummy.
Natural Talent must be promoted, whether it is in someone else or you and me.
Not doing so is tantamount to blasphemy(Sacrilege).
Ability has to be supported by visibility and senior bloggers should facilitate the process.
