The quote, “Hope is one of the best things in the world” can safely be said to be one of the best quotes ever. Why are you asking? Because hope is the thing that keeps man going because it is the fuel for our souls. However, there are certain times in a person’s life when it becomes very difficult to ditch the hope. For non-inspiring moments like this, the recently released Putham Pudhu Kalai Vidhyadha… on Prime Video is a must watch. Here are five life lessons from the series that gave our spirits an absolute boost.
it’s okay to lose control
We can only plan our life but never really know when and where as well as what turn it is going to take. No matter how hard we try to get hold of something, there will always be something else we’ll leave behind. There is no need to hold ourselves accountable and we just accept that we will not have control over many things in life. Nijal Tharum Idham puts it beautifully, that whatever the problem may be, we should never let it be our best.
Smile in the face of adversity: While we all know what to do when life gives us lemons, however, it is easier said than done. There are some situations that leave us dead inside and to make it worse, fill us with guilt that only adds to the suffering. What the anthology’s loaners tell us is that we have to find ways to empty our hearts, let all that sadness out, which will ultimately help us process the grief and make it easier to move on.
life is too short for love
Making mistakes is human and we all make mistakes from time to time. However, the people who are hurt the most by our mistakes are the people closest to us. But the thing that spoils everything is resentment. Life is too short and we never know what is going to happen tomorrow, but the last thing we need are sad memories in our lives. Maunam Paravai tells us that one must learn to accept one’s mistakes and the art of forgiveness.
there’s always a way
It actually means something when people say ‘life opens the windows when the doors close.’ We give up when we are in trouble, but what we need to learn is to find a way out, because there is always one. Mugakawasa Mutham teaches us to fight and find the way when you think it’s the end.
just need some courage
Nothing comes easy in life, for anyone! They have to struggle to get what they want. We will always regret the opportunities we didn’t take because we couldn’t muster up the courage to speak for ourselves. This is what the mask tells us; No one else is going to live your life for you, and in order to do that, you need to find the courage to stand up for yourself and make your own choices.
