The IDIOTs and the FALTUs

Attention! Disclaimer: With idiots and Faltus, I am not talking about Kapil Sibal. 

There have been two movies on Indian education now which I loved watching. One is 3 idiots, and one is F.A.L.T.U.
When I recall this fact, I find a very strange thing in the movie title.

It does seem strange one moment, but the next moment you realize its not. That is how our society thinks. According to our society the students walking on the un-trodden path are “idiots” and are “Faltu”

Times have changed. New opportunities have come up. But still our thinking is conventional, our thinking is autocratic. You never let these idiots and faltus be genius and succumb them to the pressure, squeeze all the passion out of them.
At this point of time, i also get a hint that if the society is jealous of the people who have achieved. For these people only have the ability to stand out as winners. The morals of society is to teach to be unique. We all want to be the same. But somebody tries to be, you put barricades. Consider modifying the quote by Shiv Khera  to “Winner don’t do different things, they *struggle* to do things differently”

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And I–
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.  

and thus, the road not allowed to be taken. 

I want to be an idiot, want to be a faltu. In simple sense, I want to make my living worth. 

Dance from the movie F.A.L.T.U. 😉

  1. Interesting article taking into consideration the pressures that today’s youth undergo. It is very true, no matter how many movies or articles are presented to us, our society still remains at the same place where it wanted to be to turn their future generation walk under ther pressures and stress instead let the youngster go with ther dreams and passions. I hope our next generation wouldn’t have to face all these at least.
