If you haven’t, the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Hindi film ‘Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year’ (available on Netflix) is worth a watch for any aspiring entrepreneur.
I love this dialogue from a powerful scene in the end.
jab khoon paseena ek saath kagaz pe chapta hai na,
table bed ban jaati hai aur office ghar,
bhook pyaas bhul jaati hai,
baal bacche rul jaate hai,
tab jaake sali company banti hai
Translated loosely(and I’m admittedly bad at it), it means:
When blood and sweat become the ink on your drawing board, the desk becomes your bed, the office your home. Hunger and thirst take a backseat, family and friends become a distant memory – and that is when you know you’ve got yourself a company.
