Celebrating India’s independence has always been a matter of pride for all of us. Somehow the patriot in us always comes forth. From the veer jawan to the tri-color, everything seems more personal and more meaningful. Yet, as we celebrate freedom, one cannot stop but think are we really truly free. Goal actor Kunal Kapoor insists, there are a few things that are stopping us from attaining true freedom. “I cannot help but think we need to get rid of our small mind-set to really truly be free,” exclaimed the actor.
According to him, everything and everyone around us is ruled or overruled by our society and its refusal to think beyond and dream for more. “Small mindset actually puts a hindrance to everything. Right from education to secularism and more,” expressed Kapoor. When we refuse to think beyond ourselves and our own wants, we will never be able to see the bigger picture, if we refuse to see the bigger picture we will never grow. Stunted growth never knows of true freedom.
Kunal believes, if there is a hindrance, use it like a challenge rather than as a defeat, “I don’t know about others but I have always worked on that principle. If something is keeping you away from your true potential, face that challenge head-on. I believe that is the only way forward!”
