Everyone has a inpiration or to be precise a Demi-God who they worship and follow them to make their path a glorious one. These days even a TED-X speech instills a lot of courage and evoke inspiration in millions. (No offence for Ted-X videos). But still the inspiration or the Demi-God always fade away in some days while we grow up or sometimes it makes us a fanatic. We like to imitate them, follow their way and dress up like them. Most children in their young age without knowing who would have dressed up for their fancy dress competitions. But that’s not the way with inspirations. We read every interview of them, memorise their favourite lines byheart and instill their doings in our day to day habits. Well they are no magicians, but they do magic within ourselves that we change our lives by seeing them.
Well, the readers may think why is he lamenting this long ? But its all about my inspiration and how he influenced my life. My first contact with him was when I got bemused by watching a computer. It may be Bill Gates who has popularised the computers in Indian scenario and the way Windows XP has gelled within our lives wasnt that fascinating to me. It was the Apple computer that I saw in a realtive house and I asked what it is. Till then I have seen only a windows desktop pc and the white thing that was pristine in its color and its clarity and the features that it showcased really amazed me. I asked my realtive what it was and he told me that it was the Apple computers. Fascinatingly, he had the Steve Jobs wallpaper with an apple in his hand. Till then I have heard only of Newton’s apple and I was confused why this apple was with Steve Jobs ? Then as my cousin shared his knowledge about Steve Jobs, I wanted to know more about him. Owning a PC at that time was very not affordable and the apple was even more costly. So I went to my school libary and asked my Librarian about Steve Jobs. He quickly said “Oh.. The Apple guy” and the scene picked up amusement immediatly. He brought me a history about the apple company and I didnt what many terms meant. I was only studying 6th grade and I couldnt get hold of anything other than the company names and the pictures of various computers. As years went, eventhough I didnt have a computer, I developed my knowledge on them by studying various books and magazines about computers. I would use the computer at my cousin’s home and he would be amazed at the knowledge on how I solved issues on anything related to computers. I would have collected games and softwares thinking that one day I will get a computer and these will be useful for me. Whenever I felt bad and was on the verge of losing, I would think of his quote,
” Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick,don’t lose faith”
I was a guy with stammering problem and was ridiculed for the most. Everyone will be waiting for the moment so that I stammer and they will laugh out. Whenever I felt like crying and thought I wouldn’t be able to speak properly. But all that ridicules made me stronger and I emerged as guy who could win eloquent competitions. All I did was speak within myself and spoke with the trees and the wall. Whenver life knocks you out for anyhting, do not get deterred nut continue to do whatever that we do so that Victory may emerge and we can smile back at the fate which is waiting to ridicule us thinking we will be detered by our intial failures.
And with the introduction of animation movies to me, I took a liking to drawing and designing which made me slef learn Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Everyone would ask me how I learnt or where I learnt Photoshop, and when I say them I self taught myself they will always look at me amazed and ask me to teach them also. I would be very proud and finally when I had myslef my first computer, I really thought how Steve Jobs would have thought when he made a company from nothing and introduced the world to the universe of animation and the world of latest technologies. I was always thought how the man was always thinking of introducing latest technology that only movies featured to even a common man and move ahead. Who would have thought of talking assitant like Siri to be real when only seeeing JARVIS in Iron Man brought us much happiness. The cameras, The Itunes where we can the world music in a place and the Ipods which replaced the nascent Walkmans which required bulk quantities of physical cassettes. I always feel to give something new to this world and have been thinking of give new things, hwich was inspired by him. Eventhough I amn’t a famous person, I will always look upon my persona and will climb the ladders of success and reach the stars one day where my inspiration Steve Jobs will be looking me from Heavens above. The day is not far away and I am looking forward for that day.
