The Persuit of Happyness

Well, today I am not here for posting a gazal or a puzzle. I watched a movie which forced me to write over here.

Today I watched "The Persuit of Happyness", well the 'y' in the "Happyness" is intentional and someone who has watched that movie would understand why. The movie is based on the true story of Chris Gardner who is a self made entrepreneur and a millionaire. It is really a must watch movie. The movie is not for entertainment but for inspiration. Will Smith truly gave justice to the character of Chris.

It was amazing to watch how Chris managed to take care of his son and manage to do his unpaid internship even when he was broke. How he convinced his son to sleep in a 'cave' through his 'time machine'. When everything was going wrong, he continued to see the bright and pursued the right. We find it very convenient to blame it on the circumstances when we don't have enough guts and courage to fight through it. The movie really teaches a lesson to never give up and to believe that "everything's gonna be fine".

I don't know how well I can follow the ideas depicted in that movie. But I will definitely remember this movie for it's unforgettable inspirational appeal.
