Disappointments have crossed our paths many a time. Each time we try to escape its despair by immersing ourselves into something more sobering. I tried a more depressing method, and that is to think about all the failures in my lifetime and calling myself an all-time failure but I don’t know, what happens next is that some way or the other I will be emotionally inspired the next moment. It could be a verse from the bible, or a speech, or some small instances in front of me done by the people around me. I learn from it and mentally note to share the inspiration to other desperate people I encounter.
This movie came to me as one of the inspirations I needed at such an emotional juncture. It was a total uplift for my heart and it revived my soul. This tempted me to speak about it on a public space. So I decided to share the thoughts that crossed my broken heart at that moment, over here….my favorite public space . There are lots of quotes, words and emotions here that leave you to ponder over.
The first thing that captures your notice is that Benjamin Carson was a child, who was a total nothing , that have grown up to a someone who, “if can’t find a solution, then no one can”. What a twist uh? That’s what I am talking about! Ben’s mother was a woman, who wasn’t able to read and write that she “forgets to get her reading glasses” each and every time when the boys ask her a doubt, was his backbone to success. The movie shows various stages in Ben’s life. As a primary schooler, the only one to get an F. As a growing teen, a very short-tempered one. The movie shows how he copes up with his failures. He thought he wasn’t able to do anything b’coz he can’t “imagine” anything. In a church he finds out what imaginations are like and is happy that he can imagine. His father was found to be divorced from his mother when she learned about “his other family”. His mother used to tell him “You have got everything in here..” tapping his little forehead. So when he grows up he becomes a brain surgeon. When one of his patients ask him ” Do you pray doctor?” he replies calmly with a smile “everyday..” (that made smile inside.. ) . Whenever he perform a surgery he plays a relaxing classical music, which is his favorite, and speaks out the procedures he do, if it is a complex one. In one of the occasions he loses his unborn baby twins, which makes him cry to his mother “There was nothing that I could do..” After that incident, out of his wife’s persuasion, he puts on a smile and goes to the hospital saying “I will make up for the missed duty time.” A total heart-broken time, where people like us would think of sitting in a corner and think about popping some depression pills. Last but not the least, after the success of his complex surgery, he comes out amidst the flashlights and fame and hugs the two important women in his life… his mother and his wife ( a scene I loved ) This would be my dream too…If at all in a successful moment (if it happens ) I would like to hug the two important men in my life! my dad and my life partner (Mom would be given another special hug! ) That’s all what I have in store now… will catch you all afterwards
P.S : for who don’t know..this is a real story!
