Optimism sounds funny most of the times Uncle this is not optimism it’s stupidity That’s Bangkok Not Cannaught Place’s inner circle, that one round inside it and you’ll find a shop How will you find her? This is all peanuts My life is filled with the treasure of optimism Sorry? The kind of optimism my parents showed in conceiving me no.. this is all peanuts compared to that uh oh! What do you mean? I’ll tell you Come here Look forward Look a little up Now imagine When my parents tried to conceive me for the first time One second son, one second, one second They are my parents, don’t imagine all this Sorry It’s about the year 1940, back then all this was less of a pleasure but more of a formality See that Yes, come again So.. So when my parents tried it for the first time Then.. Your aunt from Barari was born Then my father.. Tek Chand Satija thought Now next they want is a son then the family will be complete So they tried again then This time.. Your aunt who lives in Daryaganj was born So now there were my parents and two of your aunts My father again thought Now we need a son next and then our family will be complete So they tried again This time your aunt that resides in Kurukshetra was born Then with the idea of completing the family your aunt from phagwara was born Aunt from Amritsar The one from Rohtak the one from Gurgaon and the one from Rohini One from Lajpat Nagar, Pitampura, Model Town And rest 5-6 that neither I or my parents recall 16 kids were born, son But Tek Chand’s family didn’t get complete And after 10-12 attempts even a person from category drops IAS Don’t know what motivational video my dad was watching He tried for the seventeenth time What are you saying? I don’t believe that You please keep quiet! Let me listen to it Yes uncle ji! You tell They tried for the seventeenth time, then? So son.. In their hearts for 9 months.. with the hope of having a boy I was finally born Aasharam Satija And what do they say The state of mind that the mother holds during her gestation period transfers to the baby So from there I got hope Hopeful Optimism Oh.. Uncle.. you are saying anything now Huh? Mom had it so it transferred to the child Things don’t work that way Uncle is right! That definitely happens man Okay, let’s believe that.. That optimism got deep rooted in you Your mom dad named you Aasaram What’s the advantage? What do you mean? What I mean is that Chacha that at the age of retirement you are travelling by air for the first time in your life Yes and in 35 years he did not find anyone so he is going to rekindle his childhood love Look at us I’m 34 years old Aara.. is my wife Tell me She says I love you twice a day Right? And he’s travelling by air for the fifth time What do you want to say? All I’m trying to say is that being mean and rude makes you a successful dude Optimism is a fail Son, what’s your name? Ashwini Kumar Ashwini Kumar Should I look forward? Yes! Everyone look forward Look a little up Just imagine Year 1983 There’s this girl who studied at my colllege Madhu Sapra The most beautiful girl in the entire Delhi University With Madhu Sapra’s bicycle.. if one got to park their bicycle The boys rejoiced in merely this Ashwini son! Son! Son, son son, son You let it go! Your upbringing isn’t right Everyone look through the eyes of Aarushi Look forward A little up In the line of Madhu Sapra’s lovers, the one standing at the end was.. Me! People said that India may win the world cup it was still a possibbility But Madhu Sapra dates me? Non possible! She was so beautiful And I? I was good-looking only in the eyes of my mom and Manchanda But my name is Aasharam and practicalities never worried me I just prayed to the god and proposed to her Madhu Sapra Myself Aasharam And I love you She smiled and said Aasharam You’re cute! But I have a boyfriend Thank you! First of all she was so beautiful Secondly I got to know Her boyfriend was Kharbanda Who was so tall and stout that he could eat a man alive Even if one wants to be optimistic how can he I felt like giving up for the first time in my life But.. I just couldn’t get disheartened God did not create that switch in my brain So in brain, a movie was still running starring Madhu Sapra And I was the hero of that picture! Aasharam Satija Now see son, naturally Naturally There was a girl from Indore Sonam Gupta who studied in Delhi Yes, Delhi Yes! and she was cheating on her boyfriend from Indore He just doesn’t know it He just can’t do it! Okay whatever it is! But cheating is cheating So when the boyfriend came to know about this, he shared it with his sister Her sister then shared this with her boyfriend And then her boyfriend shared this with his friend Roshan So Roshan asked him that why doesn’t her girlfriend’s brother do something about that guy? The friend that told that the guy was some Kharbanda Who is so tall and buffed up that he could eat a man alive This could have ended there itself But naturally So when he was saying all this there was another guy who was present there My fast friend Ravi Manchanda Roshan was Ravi’s cousin from Indore And Ravi had gone there for his vacations Hearing Kharbanda’s name rang a bell in Manchanda’s head He took the picture of that girl and told me as soon as he came back to Delhi And we went out to investigate if he is the Kharbanda we know And praise the lord! It was our Kharbanda only! Kharbanda was a bad guy Bad guy Kharbanda Now we just had to show this to Madhu so that she breakes up So I sent Manchanda to get Madhu But while waiting I was feeling very angry seeing that bad guy How can you do this to Madhu? I felt like just going and slapping that guy Kharbanda But if a guy double your size is standing infront of you So it’s practical to let that idea pass But my name is Aasharam and practicalities never worried me Taking lord Hanuman’s name, I went and slapped him anyway And after that Kharbanda started hitting me with Yokozuna punches and made a mess of my face I had to open my eye after every punch to check if I was alive Amidst this, Madhu reached there The girl from Indore told her everything Kharbanda is my boyfriend Madhu broke up with Kharbanda And after knowing that I have taken a dozen of punches from Kharbanda for her Madhu’s heart melt And by the way That year India also won the World cup And four years later We got married Now that’s something! See If I hadn’t been optimistic, I would have never proposed to the most beautiful girl of my college Neither I would have gotten to know about Kharbanda Nor I would have been the guy who saved her from that bad guy Kharbanda Had fun uncle! Aunty didn’t come along? Son.. She passed away last year So I had this misconception that maybe it happened because I didn’t keep my promise So that’s why I’m going now! To keep my promise Uncle! I fell very bad after hearing this Don’t take it to your heart Poorness Poorness decreases a person’s age I mean if optimism along with love would have given you some money too so aunty wouldn’t have died so soon What? That’s so insensitive of you! Hey! I’m telling the truth only Son! Your aunty died.. in a car accident She was crossing the road while a.. drunk man Rest.. this money is the least important and the most guaranteed outcome of optimism Means? Son, look there! Look up Now let me take you on a tour of Aasharam’s life Year 1991 It had been 4 years of my and Madhu’s marriage I was an agent in a life insurance company One day while I was returing from office, I saw a guy laying unconscious on the road He looked like he belonged to a good family So I thought of helping him And in return of the favour, I will sell him the insurance So I brought him home I bathed him, gave him my fresh clothes and fed him But the idea to sell the insurance got flop Because the guy was a bankrupt The guy’s name was Prakash Narula and he was on banishment His 4-5 business ideas had failed And all the crediters were after him Due to tension he got addicted to alcohol He wasn’t unconscious he was laying drunk on road that day So I gave a strong dose of motivation to Narula Don’t stop hustling ever in your life Without the struggles you don’t achieve anything Mr. Narula The ones who keep trying never fail The ones who keep trying never fail So then! Next day Narula left to find a partner for his next business idea But he came back after half an hour Holding 200 rupees in his hands I found these in your pocket I’ll leave now! Praise the lord! Such honesty! I melted I decided that I’m gonna invest my money in Narula’s idea Narula! What? Uncle his 4 business ideas had failed You were still investing moeny in his idea Son.. The one who was born after someone trying for seventeen times How could have he judged Narula? Only his 4-5 business ideas failed So that was it! Carrying an envelope of five thousand rupees and a promise to come back the next year Let’s meet next year Satija Ji! Narula left! And next year He didn’t come! Damn! You got duped Uncle The next year passsed by Then next to next year passed by But son, Narula never came back Narula came After five years With my share of profit 150 crore rupees What? No! 150 crores! You are exaggerating! I mean You are just exaggerating….. just.. how will someone get 15 crores just like that You are just saying anything! How can he bring you a cheque of 150 crores yu just gave him 5 thousand rupees But uncle.. you are travelling on a flight for the first time Because your aunty.. she was very afraid to travel by an airplane So then we never travelled by air But…but… how could this happen? That you gave your money to a drunkard and won a lottery Kharbanda came out to be a bad guy so got the girl Where is optimism in all this? This is all luck! Son.. It’s the same thing! The ones who are the most optimistic are also the luckiest of all!
