Sushil Kumar, you might have heard this name. He won 5 crores in Kaun Bnega Crorepati (KBC 2011).
Recently he posted something which shocked me. He said that he had worst phase of life after winning KBC.
Why that happened?
A very common man who used to belong to a poor family background of Bihar, preparing for government job exams. Luckily he got call from KBC, played really well and won 5 crores.
His life took 180° turn and became country’s sensation overnight, he said that he was being invited in events 15-16 days in a month. Media were interviewing him very often.
As you know, fame fades away one day, but he wanted to maintain that status and definitely he couldn't get that fame by a government job and by living in village. Also he was so concerned about his image in media that he invested money in some businesses so that he could tell media that he is doing something big when they ask what he is doing currently. For this, he did some charities too. Still many people used to mock him by saying “if god is merciful, then anyone i.e. even a donkey can be all powerful and rich”.
He then went to Mumbai and tried many things like becoming film director, script writer of films, tried realities shows but things didn't work out well.
There he got addicted to cigarette and alcohol too and his relationship with his wife was also about to end due to regular conflicts that time. He was totally losing himself in the way.
Somehow he came out of all that, he realised that this is not what his life meant to be. He lost the money he invested in businesses, charity money was also misused.
Somehow, he got sense that he is living someone else’s life just to show the world which he wasn't actually. He left the city and came to his village. He prepared for a teaching exam and cracked it. Relationship with his wife also became good. And he started working on his dream project related to environment and succeeded in that. Now he says that he is living the best life.
It is always the journey which decides the destiny not the result . And in this case journey was missing.
No matter what you achieved or who you are, life will teach you the lessons which you missed. You are free to make choices but you are not free from the consequences of that choices.
