I thoroughly enjoyed talking to the children of this unusual and spirited school shaped by Kiran Sethi. Kiran asked me to speak about my journey in the context of Success and Joy. And I spoke completely ex-tempo weaving in all the core aspects of my changing goals as I went through engineering, IIT, Cornell and MIT, to land up in Bollywood and then in Coonoor on a farm.
I tried to highlight the core principles of joy and inner belief that have always guided me through success as much as through failure. And both those were secondary to the joy I felt while doing it.
Of course all topics lead to ‘The Third Curve’ and so I gave a quick glimpse of that too to the kids. Many caught on quickly and we had a lively talk after.
