Talent alone is not enough when the luck and support is not with you no matter what ever you do in life.
I love to talk about few people, to start with I see the life of Dr. Abdul Kalam. He is a very hard worker there is no doubt about it, importantly he got the correct guidance from his brother and mentors who motivated him to grow this big. Life of Sachin Tendulkar is an open book as far as Indians are concerned. His parents and importantly his brother Ajit were the reason behind his success, of course his hardwork made him the star for twenty years with a blessing of living in India(A media ruled country). Dr. Kalam and Sachin had the talent in them, they were ready to work hard and they also had the proper support to achieve high.
Now lets see what has happened with people like Rahul Gandhi, Kanimozhi and G.K. Vasan. Their grand parents and parents did the hard work of establishing themselves in the society and their kids claim the honours coming from nowhere just because they have the popular surname. Only god knows whether they have the potential to be what they are.
There is other extreme as well, people know who is Brian Charles Lara. No one suspects his talent or his willingness to work hard without which he would not have hard so many world records. Looking at his career nothing much happened to him. I don know how many of you know what it takes to score a century, its benchmark that determines an innings. Lara scored a double hundred and a hundred in a test and saw his team loosing the match. Can we call it a curse on his talent. His father was not alive when he played for the country, his mother was not alive to see his great achievemnts. No support from his team in most of the matches,his team could have been named as Brian Lara and 10 friends instead of West Indies. Vettori is following lara's steps in the region of unlucky people as of today.
Looking at the different kinds of people, what can we call life as?
