It does not matter whether you were born rich or poor, white or black, male or female, privileged or not so privileged; what matters is what you make of the life you are given. ‘Suto va sut putro’ literally means weaver or his son, a common person from the society of the time. These beautiful lines are said by Karna in Venisanhaar, a play by Bhattanarayan. This play is based on events happened in Mahabharata with a focus on Duryodhana’s life, decisions, and end. ‘Suto va sut putro’ is also a theme song for the recent tv series on Mahabharata.
These lines, although pretty old, still hold true today. We often get hung up with our past and forget what our potential is. So forget what you are or where you came from, focus on where you want to go and what you want to achieve. It is all in your hands!
