“I grew up in Kanyakumari and all my childhood memories were of roaming on the beach, playing with friends and watching films.
I am an ardent fan of superstar Rajinikanth so whenever his films used to release, we would go first-day first show to the theatres. I used to get so engrossed in his characters that I would start framing my own version of screenplay later. I am passionate about movies.
When I was younger, I had big dreams of becoming an actor and exploring the world while playing versatile characters. But when the time came to choose a career, reality obviously won. After my schooling, I started working as a commission agent in a jaggery factory. I sell this specially made palm jaggery which is made in Kanyakumari. I sell two varieties of jaggery, one is the plain palm jaggery (thati bellam) and the other is the ginger mixed variety (Allam bellam).
My job is to buy products from the Palm jaggery factory in Kanyakumari and then sell it to the customers by traveling across the different states in India.
When I started working, I was a little disappointed about not being able to pursue my dreams of becoming an actor. I came to realize that things will not be as we expect it to be in life, but it didn’t mean that I had to stop exploring more about my interests and my passion.
So I started interacting with all the people while traveling to different states doing this business – I would greet my customers in a friendly manner and ask about their customs,traditions and the festivals they celebrated.
Initially, it was difficult for me to understand their language but slowly I picked up and began to learn so much about this beautiful country of ours that it felt like I was living my dream again.
Now I have a slightly altered dream. I’m going to save up as much as I can in the next five years and then I’m going to go and explore the world whenever I get the chance.
I don’t know what the future holds for me but until then, I will work, explore and know more about people and their cultures.”
