Bollywood inspires us with movies that have a strong message. Many a time it has used a bicycle as a prop to do this.
Here is the list of movies that teach us a thing or two about life just like cycling does.
7 Life Lessons Cycling Taught Us – Bollywood Style
Piku: Dear control freaks- Let go.
Little imperfections are perfectly fine. So, instead of stressing over them, go out for a slow city ride and relish the little things that make you happy. Much like the jalebis and kachoris that (forever constipated) Mr. Banerjee relishes before he is actually able to let go (you know what)!
Barfi: Biggest risk in life is not any risk.
The most memorable rides are the riskiest ones. The rush of adrenaline gushing through your veins is what makes them worth the risk. Life is too short to overthink. There is an adventure in every corner of life waiting to be explored. To some, it comes easier than others, per se Barfi!
Sui Dhaaga: Fall down 7, stand up 8.
It takes resilience to sustain riding against the wind. Similarly, in real life scenarios, it takes elastic nerves to make wade through against the odds. Mamta and Mauji faced one crisis after the other but they proved their tenacity blow by blow till they finally made it!
Dil Dhadakne Do: The only way out is through.
You’ll never get over the fear of falling unless you get on the wheels and pedal. The only way you’ll be confident about your decisions is by going through with them. So stop second-guessing yourself and playing by others’ rules. Take a leap of faith like the fearless Farah!
Student Of The Year: Life isn’t fair – Deal with it.
All your life you’ll meet all kinds of people. But if you expect them all to play by the rules, you’ll end up thrown off even before you realise what hit you. Life is a race, don’t be a broken andaa. And don’t be like Shruti!
Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar: There is no substitute to hard work.
The best cycle in the world won’t make you be the cyclist. Only your will power and efforts can do that, so do just that. This stands true for any profession in the world. Shekhar had a way better cycle and cycling gear compared to Sanjay but we all know who became the Sikandar!
Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani: Good things happen to good people.
The track is a competitive place where people can resort to unfair means to win the race. While it’s important to have a competitive spirit, it’s even more important to not intentionally harm others to get ahead in the race. Karma is real and it’s watching. So be good for goodness sake!
Cycling is a very testing sport that has innumerable benefits, both, mind and body wise. It’s only but obvious that you’d want to save your beloved ride safe from theft and accidental damage.
