Follow your dreams like abdul kalam and kalpana chawla!!
Debate Rounds (3)
Kalam and Kalpana are lucky people. I mean no disrespect to those aces who still are the best dream initiators we ever had. We should consider them lucky because their dreams remained unaltered through out their life. However everyone"s dreams are not eternal. Everyone are not as lucky as they are. I wonder why these teachers while speaking about dreams never quote examples of chethan bhagath who never dreamt of becoming a writer or about Mahatma Gandhi who never thought of leading Indian independence movement until he returned back from England. These people"s dreams are not eternal; they changed according to their growing passion or changing times.
So lets us not inflict kid's mind with wrong notions. Let us stop confusing them with long term goals and examples of kalam and kalpana. Let us stop coercing them to dream. Let kids dream their own dreams.
My standpoint on this topic is, "There is nothing wrong when our motivational speakers use the names of Kalpana Chawla and Kalam to inspire kids to follow dreams like them, and it doesn't inflict any wrong notions in the minds of the kids".
Friend, it is not about short term or long term goals when someone use the names of Kalpana Chawla and Kalam to inspire kids, but it is the fascination a kid have towards space. In our childhood, our parents and grandparents use lot of folktales about moon or stars or anything in the outer space to put us on focus. Why? because kids normally have a intrinsic fascination towards the celestial objects. It is because of this, the motivational speakers use those two contemporary personalities to inspire kids to follow dreams like them. Both of their work is related to space (and there are also many other things in Kalam which inspires kid). This will leave a positive impact on the kid.
And after they grownup, if someone, who set their goals in the lines of Kalpana Chawla and Kalam as a kid, realized that it is not their destiny, they will change their goals according to their changed passions and they shouldn't be called as "people at weak will", on which you agreed. As they are grownup now, there is every chance that they may follow in the lines of Gandhi or Bill Gates or Rajini kanth or Chetan Bhagath or Buddha or any other else because their maturity level has grownup and they can decide upon themselves.
And yes, the motivational speakers can also use other personalities to inspire kids to follow their dreams in that lines but there is nothing wrong if they say "follow your dreams like Kalpana Chawla and Kalam".
