Sometimes you have to go through the worst to get to the best – RishabhFebruary 12, 2017
This is a story of a small child who always looked up to people in his school days, those who performed for his school events. He always got excited to see children performing in front of a huge crowd (Actually more than the performers sometimes).
I was always into music since my childhood and the best part was that I heard everybody and every genre for that matter. But the one thing that I always enjoyed was listening to rap music, and I never had the slightest idea that I would write my own songs sometime,until I heard a song called “Mother Nature” By Raftaar. Before that, I always heard rap as a source of entertainment but after hearing the song I came to the realization that one’s lyrics can bring change in the society, “That it is the person who has the pen in his hand has the ability to bring positivity to the society,to do good or to bring negativity in it”.
I never had stage fear in my school days like a lot of children I met had. I enjoyed every time I was put up by my teachers on stage. 3 year ago I did a street play in my school where I performed the same song “Mother Nature” and the crowd went crazy. After I completed the song,everybody applauded for me, from students to teachers and our Principal ma’am too.
A few days later I got a call from my friend who was apparently the head boy of our school. He told me that Water Day was coming for which I had to perform a rap. I was nervous as I had never written a rap myself till date. That’s when I called up my close friend Aakash who is also a rapper to help me out with the song.
We completed that song in a night and I performed the same the very next day and got the same reaction to it as the previous one( It was about saving the water and to not throw garbage into the sea). That’s when I started getting popular in my school. Since then I have written many lyrics.
The reason for a good artist never making it big is that,he never got supported for his art. From the start till now after 3 years many people still don’t believe in me and in my art. My friends made fun of me when I said I am a rapper and that is still very demotivating. I sometimes cry at nights and think what I did wrong that the one’s that were so close to me never actually supported me but I got support from someone I had never met. This was the time when I came to a realization that you can never please everyone at the same time. Some will agree with it and others will not,but its a part of the life.
I got rejected many times, I was never a bright student in school and in college because I always wanted to chase my dreams and follow my passion. But the one thing that kept me motivated was to see my parents happy and to inspire people.
This year I started my new journey as a college student but what I saw was some children taking a big step and ending their precious lives.
I was so sad to see all this,one shouldn’t take this kind of step in life.They should think about their families too. Life gives you many chances to achieve big things and you should not be disheartend by failures .After all, failure is a stepping stone to success. The only thing you’ve to do at that time is Be Patient. Because
“Sometimes you have to go through the worst to get to the best”.
On 26 or 27 Of Feb, I’m Going to give tribute to the souls who left us too early so keep an eye on my youtube channel. ( I will put up the link at the end of the article).
It has been 3 years since I started my journey and I’m enjoying each and every part of it and when people ask me what have I earned till now, my answer is “Smiles” and “Blessings”.
The last thing I want to say is that Always believe in your Friend when he is just starting because it is at this time he needs your support to follow up his passion. We always tend to support people that we don’t know and seldom support a person who is hanging out with us daily.
