In this episode of the Subhash Chandra Show, Subhashji interacts with the youth of the state of Jammu and Kashmir at the Srinagar School of Management, Baramulla. Addressing over more than 2000 students, he takes up the topic – How to Make or Break a Habit. Differentiating between bad habit and good habit, Subhashji says that any kind of negativity is a bad habit and it acts as a barrier in achieving success.
So how can one get rid of the bad habits and adapt to the habit of getting good habits? Subhashji says, “Often when we refer to habit we only think of a bad habits, but doing something good repeatedly is a good habit too. Your good habit is your talent.”
Throwing the question open to the audience Subhashji asks, “Should we concentrate on our bad habits and change them or should we concentrate on our good habits and enhance them?” Students express their thoughts on negative and positive habits and how they co-exist.
Speaking about hard-work and attitude, Subhashji says, “Hard work is incomplete without the right Attitude.” He says that if your attitude is positive, even if a little less hard-work goes in to your attempt, the result will be 100%.
To give a better understanding of the topic, Subhashji introduces Smt. Nadia Nighat, a football coach who trains over forty kids every evening. The 20-year-old is the first woman football coach from the Kashmir valley. “I believe that whatever is the problem, however strong and high the wall is, it is possible to overcome it and I did the same,” she says.
Adding to her point, Subhashji says, “Do not pay attention to what other people have to say. Follow your talent.”
Subhashji also reiterated that adapting any new habit is a time taking process and one needs to have the patience to get used to it. Along with this, he assured the students of Jammu and Kashmir that he will provide all the required support in highlighting the positive side of Kashmir.
The second guest on the show is World Kickboxing Champion (Junior Category) Tajamul Islam . In 2016, eight-year-old Tajamul Islam scripted history at the World Kickboxing Championship in Italy, where she made India proud by becoming the first player ever from the sub-junior category to clinch a gold medal.
The wonder kid has created a sensation in the valley. She is from a little-known village called Tarkpora in Kashmir’s Bandipora district. Tajamul’s natural aptitude for kickboxing was first spotted by the Army Goodwill School in Tarkpora. But there was no proper infrastructure in place to train for the sport. Her coach Shri Faisal Dar trained her in an open field with makeshift apparatus. Despite these odds, she persevered and practiced at least 25 hours a week.
She says, “When I asked my coach why he thought I had in in me to win, he said that I had something good in me, it was my will power.”
Her first major win was at the state-level championship in Jammu in 2015 where she won a gold medal in the sub-junior category. Tajamul has a lot of fan following in the valley. She urges all parents in India, “I request all mothers and fathers of India to not put pressure on their children. Let their talent flourish. Every child in India should go ahead.”
