Yesterday’s post is related today’s and the Bollywood movie I watched a few days ago of an aspiring novelist who sets up a letter writing shop. The movie was set some years back, and the main character moves back from the city to his remote village where people need his help in communicating with their loved ones in different parts of the country. Things start slow, he writes whatever he is told but his letters get few results. He soon learns that the best way to elicit a response from the recipients is to write with his heart, customers come to him and tell him what they wish to communicate; he then weaves a beautiful tale. He is passionate about his job, taking non-responses personally; his results are amazing, he’s able to get people to respond, send money and even come and visit their relatives.
