The horribly commercial business of IPL cricket is not somewhere you would expect to learn some of life's important truths, but today before the match between KKR and RCB began at the Eden Gardens, there was such a lesson to be learnt. The footage of the studio team cut away to Gaurav (one of the co-hosts of IPL 2010 on Set Max) who was waiting to interview one of cricket's all time greats on the grounds. Gaurav began his telecast by saying "It's just one of those days when you say 'Keep my paycheck. I am just too happy doing this job.' Here I am ready to interview Brian Lara who happened to be just passing by..." before getting into a chat with the batting genius. Can't fault him for his happiness, any cricket lover would have said and felt the same!
Aren't we all looking for such a job? A job where we can say even for the sake of lip service at least once in our lifetimes that the joy of the job is far greater than any of the paychecks on offer. Gaurav had found such a job and we would all be better off finding one for ourselves. Here's wishing everyone good luck on this most difficult of searches!
