Amit Sadh, a famous actor from the Hindi film industry, known for his roles in well-loved movies such as Kai Po Che!, stressed the importance of holding onto one’s value system and the following passion to reach goals. He said, “Mujhe lagta hai ki (I think that) values bahut (are very) important hai. The first step [is] holding on to those values… I think, one of the beautiful gifts, we have in this beautiful country, [is] it is valued, so holding on to them [is the] first step.” Further, the actor, who has made a name for himself for his passionate performances he delivers on screen, on an inspiring note to the student, added, “the most important thing is passion. You have to follow your passion. Don’t let anyone hold you back.”

Adding the need to be resilient in the face of challenges, he said, “Being resilient means don’t be afraid, don’t be scared and yeh to zaroor shuna hoga (you must have heard) never give up. Never give up, in short, these three words have changed my life. So, I just hope that aap log life mein kisi cheez se bhi joojh rahe hain, lad rahe hain ya ghabra rahe hain (whatever situation you are facing in your life, fighting them or getting intimidated by them), I hope aap apni takat khud bane (you become your source of strength) [be]cause you are powerful.”

Leaving the students with food for thought, Amit said, “Mai aapko 10 shabd de raha hun, aap inn 10 shabd ke bare mein sochenge, yeh aapka homework hai ( I am giving you all 10 words, you will think about these 10 words, this will be your homework). Aap apni journal mein iske bare mein essay likhenge jab bhi aapko waqt mile (You write an essay on them in your journal when you get time); pehla shabd hai (the first word is) respect, dusra shabd hai (the second word is) understand, teesra shabd hai (the third word is) loyalty, chautha (fourth) [word is] peace, fifth [word is] harmony, sixth [word is] laughter, seventh [word is] love, eight [word is] purpose, ninth [word is] good intentions and tenth [word is] good action.”
