What does it take to have a dream career? This video with Ian Faria, Chief Mentor & Co-founder of TalkTemple and Anupama Gowda, Co-founder WorkBench Solutions tries to answer the question.
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” – Oprah Winfrey
If money didn’t exist, would you still get up every morning and do what you do for a living? That is a question only a lucky few would say yes to. But is luck a factor at all for living your dream? What does it take to have a dream career?
Everyone has a dream career. Then why doesn’t everyone strive to pursue it? Among many other factors, the most important is the lack of courage. It is easier, for most, to take the safe road than thrive in a situation that throws all kinds of challenges your way from social to financial.
There are a few prerequisites to start your dream career. The first is the courage to take the plunge and the courage to overlook the negative energy that gives you reasons why it wouldn’t work. The negative energy could be self doubt or it could be people who are determined that your dream is actually a nightmare.
The next is to find the idea that you want to work with, why you would want to work with it, and whether the world is ready to or is moving towards your idea. Anupama Gowda, co founder of Workbench projects suggests that manifesting an idea is almost like giving birth to a baby and the idea needs to be incubated for a while to see if you can do justice to it with your time and resources.
In addition to all these, it is important to stay self motivated and be resilient when you have hard times. Start now! Live your dream!

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
Darlings makes some excellent points about domestic violence . For such a movie to not follow through with a resolution that won't be problematic, is disappointing.
I watched Darlings last weekend, staying on top of its release on Netflix. It was a long-awaited respite from the recent flicks. I wanted badly to jump into its praise and will praise it, for something has to be said for the powerhouse performances it is packed with. But I will not be able to in a way that I really had wanted to.
I wanted to say that this is a must-watch on domestic violence that I stand behind and a needed and nuanced social portrayal. But unfortunately, I can’t. For I found Darlings to be deeply problematic when it comes to the portrayal of domestic violence and how that should be dealt with.
Before we rush to the ‘you must be having a problem because a man was hit’ or ‘much worse happens to women’ conclusions, that is not what my issue is. I have seen the praises and criticisms, and the criticisms of criticisms. I know, from having had close associations with non-profits and activists who fight domestic violence not just in India but globally, that much worse happens to women. I have written a book with case studies and statistics on that. Neither do I have any moral qualms around violence getting tackled with violence (that will be another post some day).
