Some stories are inspiring unforgettable. Such is the story of my friend Ronak Modi; from India.
I met Ronak while working in the animation studio I worked for 10 years. He joined as a junior computer graphic artist in my team. He was focused, smart and in a rush. He had to get there soon. He was extremely passionate.
This passion has paid well.
Today, he’s working as a department lead in a foreign animation studio. He has realized his dream and I have been an integral part of his victorious journey. I have seen his dreams, I have watched his moments and I have witnessed his passion.
I remember that one day when he was lost and sad. He didn’t mention it but I smelled it. I gave him a nice line that is one of my mantra of life—some days are like a mother, some days are like a stepmother.
He’s a big man now but he remembers this line.
Ronak is a sucker for cricket and especially Rahul Dravid. Although we don’t talk much now due to the time difference and his busy schedule, I always remember him as a great team member and noble human being.
