"Calendar, khaana laao!" are words that have echoed in every house post the release of Mr. India. Satish Kaushik who played "Calendar" in the iconic movie turns 61 today. A multi-talented person whose comic timing is nothing short of legendary has given us many more memorable characters like Calendar. He has been the comic relief in most movies of the 90s and has also tried his hand at writing with the cult classic Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro. Movies like Tere Naam, Badhaai Ho Badhaai, and Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja had him sitting in the director's chair. He is also a restaurateur who runs Calendar's Kitchen in New Delhi.
When you hear the name Satish Kaushik, you remember that man who would appear in movies with a different accent every time with quotable dialogues which might have had you rolling in the aisle laughing. Did you also know his dialogues could be life lessons too? Here's how:
The simple lesson over here is to cross check your work in different combinations and confirm you have done it right. Also, it is advisable to stay away from someone who talks like that.
A very wise one here. Just because the company/team is doing great doesn't always mean it's your personal achievement. You might ride high on their success, but at the end of the day, you have to do something on your own too.
You might think that ignorance is bliss. But this dialogue proves otherwise. Your willingness to learn might open more doors for you but if you stick to ignorance, they will remain shut.
This one doesn't need much explanation, as the wisdom is plain as day and not something you look for between the lines.
Saajan Chale Sasural (1996)
Two halves make a whole. The halves don't have to be identical, they can be as diverse as North and South and yet make something complete out of it.
There will be a lot of small opportunities in life. It is very rare that you will come across something major and then, you have to make it count.
It is important to be totally focused when discussing things of importance. Distractions should be avoided at all costs. Also, most definitely stay away from people who talk like that.
It might be ironic but your actions speak the loudest. So it is always necessary to make sure your actions give out the perfect message. Also, you don't want to mistaken for a train, do you?
