How to find meaning when reality hits you | Manisha Koirala | TEDxJaipur

  • Опубликовано: 23 мар 2017
  • In this candid talk, Manisha shares how she discovered the meaning of life when things went down and how she made the worst situation of her life into a narrative of triumph!
    Manisha Koirala is well known for her acting prowess and her ethereal looks which easily pull at audience heartstrings. However, what many may not know about this Nepalese beauty is her quiet confidence and graceful strength which have enabled her rise to success in Bollywood and work in critically acclaimed movies with directors such as Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Subhash Ghai and Mani Ratnam. Manisha also had her fair share of ups and downs, but it was the diagnosis of cancer in 2012 which caused her to pause and introspect her life deeply. Perhaps it was this very introspection which gave Manisha new goals and motivated her to rise and shine through trying times.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    It's mesmerizing to listen to what she said ! The words get valued when it is compiled with honesty and emotions. She has experienced enough, to depict it all. And the most amazing thing, she learnt from it. She decided to make others listen to it and realize about what realization in actual is. M glad to listen to her! I almost experienced death and found myself to be in a situation, where I realized that I am no more, but I wanted to survive for the people who loves and care about me. Every experience is a lesson. We just need to realize that we need to learn from it!

    მეც დამმართა კიბო ახვარმა და მიჩქარებს პროცესს.როცა კვდება ადამიანი ისეთი კატეგორიული აღარაა და კომპრომისებზე მიდის,ოღონდ იცოცხლოთ.თან შვილსაც თუ შეუშხაპუნებ წამლებს და ქმარს მიუჯირყვნი,სულმთლად შაქარლამა იქნება😊
    თქვენ მსახიობი ყოფილხართ,ეს პროფესია ეშმაკისაა ქრისტიანულად,თავად აღიარებით,რომ ურთიერთობებიც მრავლად გქონიათ.
    მე კი ღმერთმა ტალანტი რომ მომცა ,მისია დამაკისრა და ვალი დამადო,რომ მემსახურა. წარმოგიდგენიათ ,ჩიტი უფრთოდ
    ან უნისკარტოდ?
    ფუნქციამოშლილი ორგანოსავით არის მიზან და დანიშნულება წართმეული ადამიანი.მე არ შევეგუები ჩემს თავს სხვანაირს, იმიტომ რომ იდეალური ვიყავი.
    მაგრამ არ ვაწყობდი უკეთურ ადამიანებს და მათ ხეპრულ კორექციას ემსხვერპლა საუკეთესო ნიჭი და სიცოცხლე.როგორ არ უნდა მძულდეს ჩემი შვილის და ცხოვრების ამპარტავნების გამო ჯოჯოხეთად მქცეველი, თვითნებურად მოქმედი სადისტი,რომელმაც არ შეგვიცოდა და ყოველდღე ტკბება ჩადენილით,აქაოდა ღირსი იყავიო. ღმერთი არ ცდება და პაუზები საჭიროა უთხარით თქვენს მწერლუკა შნირებს, პაუზა მე კი არ მჭირდება,თქვენ გინდათ ჩემი იზოლირება,რომ შეგრჩეთ ყველაფერი სანამ ცოცხლები ხართ და თქვენს სიკვდილს ველოდო ახლა?
    რატომ ველოდო,შეურიგებელი რომ ვარ და უკეთურები რომ მეჯავრება?
    ღმერთმა იმისთვის მომიყვანა თქვენს კარზე,რომ იცოდეთ:
    თქვენი დრო მორჩა.
    კრიმინალები აღარ დაგეგმავენ ქართული ლიტერატურის ბედს და გააუკუღმართებენ ჩემნაირი თვალებ და გულანთებული ტალანტების სულს და ცხოვრებას.ყველა გამწარებული და მიჯირყვნული ქართული პოეტესას და პოეტის,ყველა დაკარგული ნიჭის და ჩაწიხლული,განადგურებული შემოქმედის ცოდვა გიწევთ თქვე არამზადებო!

    I am surprised she didn't talk about her alcoholism. She was a very good actress but her fall started because of the bottle which also affects looks. She was outstanding in "Lajja" given that she was sharing screen space with 2 very established actresses like Rekha and Madhuri Dixit.
