Where ever you wanna run, wherever you wanna go, it's your family which will make any place feel like home.

In our fussy life, where we can't make time for family, it's not that we don't want to! But the situation which life puts in front of us makes us distant from them. We the generation gives so much importance to our profession in "to do something BIG" which sometimes lead us alone, and not just us, our families too.

Permanent Roommates Tanya Nagpal Aka. Nidhi Singh had a one on one talk with Humans of Bombay & in her conversation she shared the same fuss about career and family.

And not to the surprise, the answer we wanted to hear from her was, family. Nidhi talks about real success and she clearly mentioned, "it is not staying away from the family, but staying connected with them, no matter where your career takes you."

She shared her journey of her young & simple living, but with asirations to do something BIG in life. She said:

"I had a simple upbringing. My dad was a doctor in the Railways & my mom was a teacher. You know how in movies you see a starry eyed, small town girl who wants to be an actor? I was her."

She moved to Mumbai for further studies but, she didn't entered acting straighaway because...

So for college, I moved to Bombay. Afterwards, I got a job in a reputed Ad agency. I told myself I wasn't good enough to be an actor yet. So with my job, I watched from the sidelines.

One day she gathered the courage, quit her job and gave hundreds of auditions, the miracle happened, she got 'Permanent Roommates'.

I was just 23, it was now or never. So in a month, I quit my job. I auditioned, worked in plays & was freelancing as an A.D to pay the bills.
After about a 100 auditions, 'Permanent Roommates' happened & then 2 films. And I didn't stop for 2 years! I hadn't been home, but a phone call changed it all.

Everthing was smooth, until, she got a call that her father has suffered a brain stroke. And two months after, her mother was diagnosed with Uterine cancer.

My dad couldn't speak properly & my mom was staying strong for us. None of my achievements felt worth it. My family mattered more than a successful career.

Just like her love for family, the story looks so similar to everyone of us. Her morals are still rooted in her because "Family comes first, always" & after all, our families are our permanent roommates, isn't it?.

“Last year, I visited my parents during Christmas in Allahabad. At dinner, a woman asked me for a picture! My mom was ecstatic. In her eyes, I had made it! As for me, I was glad for the dinner with them, because a lot had happened before. I had a simple upbringing. My dad was a doctor in the Railways & my mom was a teacher. You know how in movies you see a starry eyed, small town girl who wants to be an actor? I was her. I was captivated by Shakespeare in school & knew that this was what I wanted to do. My parents were skeptical. But I told them I had to try. So for college, I moved to Bombay. Afterwards, I got a job in a reputed Ad agency. I told myself I wasn't good enough to be an actor yet. So with my job, I watched from the sidelines. One day, on set, I asked Shernaz Patel about her career. She said all I had to do was jump in & asked why I hadn’t yet? I was surprised that she could tell I was interested. I was just 23, it was now or never. So in a month, I quit my job. I auditioned, worked in plays & was freelancing as an A.D to pay the bills. After about a 100 auditions, ‘Permanent Roommates’ happened & then 2 films. And I didn't stop for 2 years! I hadn’t been home, but a phone call changed it all. My dad had had a brain stroke. I was devastated. My brothers & I got my parents to Bombay. But in 2 months, my mom was diagnosed with Uterine cancer. Nothing mattered now. We spent the next few months in hospitals. My dad couldn't speak properly & my mom was staying strong for us. None of my achievements felt worth it. My family mattered more than a successful career. I’d grown up watching my parents work unending hours. So I tried to do the same, for them. But I was losing out on staying connected to my roots. So last year, even when I was recognised at dinner, I was just happy to be with my parents there. And all we did when we went home, was switch on the T.V & fall asleep in front of it. Just like old times. I’d learnt what real success was. It wasn't growing apart but growing up & staying connected to my roots. Where I came from, my home, my family, the fact that they were proud, that made all the difference. That was my success.” #IShapeMyWorld
