The pride of India Flying Sikh Milkha Singh died at the age of 91 due to Corona. Just 5 days ago, his wife Nirmal Kaur died due to post-covid complications. Milkha Singh was receiving treatment at a hospital in Chandigarh after she was diagnosed with a positive corona on May 20. He was born on November 20, 1929 to a Sikh family in Pakistan. He had a great love for India, which is why he joined the Indian army after partition. While serving the country from here, he made sport his passion. The life story of Milkha Singh, who has become an example for people, is very interesting.
This is the reason why in 2013 a Bollywood film ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ was made about the life of Milkha Singh, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Its writer is Prasoon Joshi, while Farhan Akhtar appeared in the role of Flying Sikh. The movie was so spectacular that Milkha couldn’t hold back tears after watching it. He had said: ‘I got really excited after watching some scenes from the movie. It reminded me of my fighting days. It won the award for best entertaining film at the 61st National Film Awards. We also learn many life lessons from the Milkha biopic, especially related to financial planning.
Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar had put his life in the role of legendary sprinter Milkha Singh.
These important life lessons related to financial planning can be learned from the movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ …
1. Set goals at different stages of life.
In Farhan Akhtar’s protagonist ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, Milkha Singh is seen running for different goals at different stages of her life. Like during school days, Milkha runs on the hot sand to get home early so the time is shorter. Similarly, when his family is attacked, he runs fast to save his life. After stealing coal, they run on top of the train. During his training in the Indian Army, he runs cross country races to survive a cup of milk, 2 eggs, and exercise every day. They run for the jacket to be spelled ‘India’, which is a symbol of self-respect.
Likewise, when you become an athlete, you keep racing to win around the world, so you can make your country proud. Similarly, we must set our financial goals at different stages of life. Goals may be small, but they will be helpful as steps to a larger goal. It is very important to have a financial plan to adapt and overcome the odd situations that arise in our life. For example, we can set these goals to save for a flat or car, invest for children’s education and marriage, or save for life after retirement.
2. Motivation, supporters, training and guidance for success
It is shown in the movie that Milkha Singh’s character falls in love with a girl named Biro during his youth. That girl inspires him to earn self-respect and become a successful person. Similarly, Milkha’s sister, Isri Kaur, is her biggest supporter. She is by his side all the time all the time. Two of his coaches, Gurudev Singh and Ranveer Singh, trained him to achieve his goals. He was Milkha’s mentor, who helped him improve his sportsmanship through regular training. Inspiration from his girlfriend, along with his sister and constant guidance from the coach made Milkha a Flying Sikh.
Similarly, to prepare and follow our financial plan, we must be in touch and in touch with people who can inspire us. Most people avoid financial planning and seek the advice of anyone regarding investments, insurance, or tax savings. Your family, on the other hand, will always be available to help you when you need it. To prepare a comprehensive financial plan for oneself in life, one should be guided by financial advisers and follow the suggestions they give without any flaws. For this, you can also get guidance from magazines or training from any institute.
3. Get the things you need and like, don’t be greedy
As shown in the movie, Milkha Singh is surprised to see a blazer worn by champion runner Sher Singh Rana. He likes that blazer so much that he secretly wears Frog’s blazer, but after that he is insulted. On this, coach Gurudev Singh slaps Milkha and explains that getting the things you love is not easy. You have to work hard to earn them. After this, Milkha joins in day and night to get that blazer. They practice a lot shedding blood and sweat. Someday get that blazer yourself.
In life, we should not pay attention to the useless talks of our friends or family. We must analyze our needs and ask ourselves if it is worth buying these items or investing our time and money. Don’t pay attention to other people’s words or things. Don’t risk getting any object or situation by being subdued by greed, otherwise you may find it troublesome in the future. Get guidance from your financial advisor on what type of plan is needed to meet your needs. Based on that, you can meet your needs through financial planning.
4. Life is not a collection of flowers, but a path full of thorns and pebbles.
“How dreams landed in the eyes, when the dream only sows splinters; Life is not a game of flowers, it is a difficult challenge of thorns. For Tama’s sake close to me; A handful of bas jyoti hai ‘… The truth has been said that life is not a set of flowers, but a difficult challenge like thorns. It has been well demonstrated in the biopic of the great Indian sprinter Milkha Singh. In the movie, we see that in her early days, Milkha used to run barefoot. Before there was no opportunity to buy shoes for lack of money, but later, when there was capacity, lack had become a habit. He did not feel comfortable running in shoes. That’s why he lost once, because while he was running, his foot hit the stone.
So always remember, life is not a flower bed, in which roses are placed, thorns and pebbles are also found on it, so there is always the possibility of getting hurt. Investments face volatility in returns. Healthy returns may not be achieved year after year. Therefore, you must adapt to economic conditions and analyze risks when making any type of investment. There will always be some investment decisions that can go wrong and cause losses. Therefore, do not link to any particular mutual fund stock or scheme. However, over the years, mutual funds have become a good investment.
