"Don't give up on the guitar for a year, it won't give up on you ever." These are not the words of Eric Clapton or Jimmy Page. These are the words of one of our very own 'autowallahs'.
Kunj Karia, a blogger, was returning from a guitar class when his auto driver started talking to him about guitars. The 'autowallah' later revealed that he used to be a professional guitarist and played with his group of friends at bars and restaurants but later stopped due to dearth of regular gigs.
He said the money wasn't good enough and he needed food on the table for his family.
After talking for a while, the auto driver couldn't contain himself and asked whether he could play the guitar Karia was carrying and ended strumming a few chords and reminiscing the good old days.
Most people end up doing something completely different that what they wanted to when they started out. Once in a while they are reminded of what they loved to do and are inspired to follow their dreams. A nostalgic 'autowallah' picking up your guitar is one of those few instances.
