It’s been a few weeks since the Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starred Gully Boy released. Since then the movie entered theaters, left a mark in the viewers minds and made it’s way onto streaming channels as well to become accessible to many more viewers.
One of the songs of the movie has remained with me long after I heard the first cymbal crash on the track. It’s a scrappy number mixed to have thumping bass beats with Ranveer Singh trying to drop ‘fire’ in his lyrics and doing quite a good job for someone who isn’t a professional rapper.
Through the rapidly spewed lyrics though the line that gave the song it’s name has stuck with me.
‘Apna Time Aayega’ which literally translates into our time will come. I’ve been wondering why this particular line resounded with me so strongly.
After a fair few commutes spent thinking about it the answer finally came to me. It’s because my time is still to come and I have got to build myself up to a point where I can seize it.
At a few months shy of my 30th birthday, I’ve got many more miles to go on my path to be the best Son and Husband I can be not to mention the professional successes I want to have. Before my 50th birthday I want to be the CEO or Managing Director at a global firm which is making businesses or peoples lives easier with the use of technology.
I’m aware that the path isn’t going to be easy and that I will definitely mess up along it at times but what’s life without a little adventure eh? In the spirit of achieving our dreams give the song that’s inspiring me at this moment a listen and think about what you need to get done so that your time comes too.
