So, if you are preparing for competitive exams, do not focus on the goal itself. Rather, work hard to gain command over the topics which carry high weight-age in that particular exams and you’ll be through.

A group of Champaner villagers led by a feisty young man challenge the British to a game of cricket to get their land tax waived. Their biggest hurdle is that no one knows to play the game.
What do we usually do in a similar situation? Many of us just quit the game and go back to our cocoon whereas a few Bhuvans take the bull by its horns and just face it. So, if you belong to the latter breed, stand up and step ahead to show the world that you too can, no matter what odds are there.

Many of us must have faced moments when people around us make fun of our inabilities, our weaknesses or what we call a temporary instance of failure. So, what should we do when life offers lemons? We should always try making lemonade out of them like Shashi did in this artistically directed movie.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
This one artwork by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra will be remembered forever. The movie aptly describes how Milkha Singh or the ‘Flying Sikh’ overcomes many agonizing obstacles to become a world champion, Olympian and one of India’s most iconic athletes. As a person, not only he served the country being a profound Athlete but also as an Indian Army soldier. His achievements in athletics epitomizes values like harnessing ambition, setting goals, having focus, discipline and determination, and not retreating from hard work but the best lesson we can learn out of Sir Milkha Singh’s life is readiness to grab whatever life offers to him. Remember the exclamation – “Aaho”?
So next time, when you fail to clear a bigger exam and sailed through a smaller one, accept the opportunity wholeheartedly because there will always be ways through which you will still be able to achieve you desired dreams.

Last but not the least! ‘Dangal’ is a sports biography real-life story of Mahavir Singh Phogat, the strong-willed soul. The film portrays his struggles to coach his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari. For those who are unaware, Geeta became India’s first female wrestler to bag a gold medal at Commonwealth Games. A great legacy to take the form of a movie! Adding more to it, the movie encompasses several other incidents which is bound to leave you teary-eyed.
One of the lessons that you can learn out of this amazing movie is that we should always be flexible with our approach while taking an exam. I hope you remember the final three fights the movie showcases and how Geeta takes them differently keeping the opponent’s and her own strengths and weaknesses in mind. We must keep the same approach in mind while taking an exam.
So, what are you waiting for? Take a break, grab some popcorn, watch your favourite flick, learn a lesson and ‘evolve’.
