What happens to talent in India?

Talent. Everybody has it but few gets noticed others don't, right? No. It's not like that all the time. Yes, if you're from India.
If you get successful in polishing, practicing and perfecting your skills then you definitely will get noticed if you have the potential and networking or else you end up entertaining people or earn your livelihood out of it.
This blog is totally my personal experience and thoughts, something I've noticed since years.
Have you seen a person playing the awesome piano but selling kids pianos on the street?
Have you seen a small kid walking on a thin line of rope in the air, doing awesome stunts? Doing it to fill her family's belly?
Have you noticed how amazing those people who beg in trains by singing or playing instruments?

Why aren't they famous or well known like two to three "talented" celebrities?
So many kids want to do something different rather than studying and getting good grades, in short doing something that their parents desire. These kids end up doing their passion as hobbies.
Don't believe me? Ask yourself what you always wanted to be at the first pace in childhood, and what are you doing now?
Apart from curry, India is known for parents forcing and torturing kids to get A+ in their exams or studies.
Another reason for talent not getting recognized is obviously "Reservations". Deserving people always fades away in the crowd due to the reservation.
Poverty too is in favor of talent getting waste in India. If you're poor, from India then VOILA!! Earn from it and live your life on the streets.
What can I say about Politics? Politics in India is just so on point that no one could beat Indians in it. If someone wants to do something good then gravity plays an important role in their lives. They will be pulled down by people who are jealous, sometimes by their own people.
When I was talking about parents and grades, it's a vast trap of many parents who think working under a company is actually known as being "successful" and "independent" according to them and kids are being forced to study and choose something they aren't interested at all. Resulting, kids do something they are least interested in and then they cry and regret about what they are doing in their lives.
Age is just a word but Indians took it way too seriously and we think that there's a particular age of doing things. Everything is been limited if the age is gone. Age is gone? Sounds funny, right? There are age slobs for everything in India. Want to get married? Do it before you turn 25. Want to have children? Before 30. Job? Before 23. House? Before the 30s and the list goes on.
People will eventually discourage you by saying "now your age is gone" or "Do it before you age is gone"
If we say the situation is different now, trust me, it's not. What is happening in our Olympics? Why is India never representing itself in FIFA? India stands number 2 in population, then where is the Talent in India?
If you have some different views about this or anything else which is stopping our country's talent then do feel free comment below.
