Jamal : I knew you’d be watching
Latika : I thought we would meet only in death
Jamal : This is our destiny

.. Slumdog Millionaire Quotation ..

Destiny ?

So it means that no matter how hard we tried, no matter how hard we learned, no matter how hard we worked, if our Destiny which had written in our hand is not what we dreamed for, and then we will not have it ?

Watching Slumdog Millionaire made me realized that every single path of our life is worth. We never know when that part of our life will bring that ‘luck’ to our dream, until that ‘luck’ land in our plate.

Watching Slumdog Millionaire made me realized that Destiny always start with IF.

Jamal’s would not be a millionaire, if he didn’t live in that slum area, if he didn’t live in that beggar world, if he didn’t get caught steal the food and dump off at Taj Mahal, if he didn’t meet his blind childhood friend, if he didn’t work at call center, if he didn’t replace the call center staff, and many others IF …

Are there a lot of Jamal’s in this world ? Unfortunately there are a lot of Jamal’s in this world, in different shape. Even we are “Jamal” in our own world.

So what is Destiny anyway ? Why people always said it’s our Destiny ? Because what we’ve dreamed for finally there ?

What about if what we’ve dreamed for are still a dream ? A Destiny also ?

For me, Destiny is the answer of what we’ve done along the way we live in this world. The Destiny itself starts when God created “us” in our mother’s womb. Start on that day, then IF come to our world.

Destiny is our own free will which God had given to us together with the voice of angel and evil, “the conscience”.

Every single path in our life is a Destiny.

Jamal’s destiny is his free will together with his conscience. Our destiny is our free will together with our conscience.

Nice, contemplative post. (as always) :-)

I've watched Slumdog Millionaire too, and yes, there are many good messages from the show!

At the end of the movie, I believe that my life (and everyone else) is meant to be. I just haven't seen where it's gonna bring me to :)

wah..film slumdog emang dahsyat..nggak heran kalo mereka bisa nyabet 8 penghargaan sekaligus di oscar kemaren. kuat banget ceritanya. hmm
kita juga bisa memetik pesan dari sana, dimana kita harus bersyukur, karena pada hidup kita, karena ternyata, masih banyak orang di luar sana yang kehidupannya lebih parah dari pada kita. Namun, saya juga kadang iri pada mereka yang kekurangan itu, dimana banyak dari mereka yang dengan kekurangan itu, dan dengan keterbatasan itu, mereka bisa menciptakan keajaiban-keajaiban yang nantinya bisa membuat mereka hebat..:D
