Never forget your roots
Meka Srikanth returned to entertain us after a long, long time. During the early 90s and early 2000s, the actor impressed everyone with his lover-boy looks and heartwarming smile. Like any other actor, Srikanth too faced ups and downs. He saw his highs and then his lows. When people started to miss him, the actor returned with a bigger bang than one could have expected. His digital debut, Chadarangam, was commended to be his career-best performance. And his character of Gangadhar also teaches us many life lessons.
Right in the first scene, we see Gangadhar the superstar step out of his guest house and greets his fans. He does not even stop there. Gangadhar goes on to invite them all and serves them lunch with his own hands. The actor in him knows that he wouldn’t be anything if not for his fans. Similarly, in life too, we must never forget who builds us and must always respect their roots.
Stand up for yourself, and for your people
Pay attention to detail
Instropect, every once in a while
From time to time, we see Gangadhar sit alone in his chair with his eyes closed. He highly believes in introspecting his own activities and the things that take place around him. We live in a time and age when we do many things unknowingly, hence it is important to introspect and correct our mistakes.
Be open to ideas, criticism and suggestions
Its okay to take a step back
At one point, Gangadhar decides to dissolve his party and stand for re-elections. Everyone wonders why he would do something like that at the peak of his tenure, but Gangadhar knows best. Finally, he when wins the elections again, the state learns who has arrived. So, it is always a good idea to take a step back before making a leap.
Use your powers wisely
At one point, Gangadhar kicks out the same fans whom he had fed a few days earlier. The reason he does this is to stand up for someone who was being cornered. In this, he teaches us that when we have a certain power, we must use it wisely. Because as a wise man said, with great power comes great responsibility.
There will always be someone more powerful than you
Lastly, Gangadhar teaches us that no matter how powerful you are, there will always be another person or entity that will be more powerful than you are.
On this note, we thank Meka Srikanth for Chadarangam and wish him many more successes on his 57th birthday. Let us know what other lessons you took away from the show.
