A Lesson on Strength Deficit

(Excerpt from upcoming book)

I thought I was done the book until something happened and I decided to write an entirely new chapter. This one is about inevitability, and what it can mean when you are en route the road of self discovery. Inevitability brings with it the sort of truth otherwise no where close to us. 

Jaspal Bhatti has been one of my dad’s closest friends for as long as I can remember. For the larger part of my life, my dad hasn’t lived within reach- he was often oceans away working on a story or project. Regardless, somehow, somewhere, Bhatti Uncle was there. Whether he would be talking about an adventure in Russia in the late 80’s or visiting a local pub in town. They experienced life together and in the process Bhatti Uncle became a part of our lives. Our families were connected long before I was even born and we knew his family as our own. Of course, I didn’t get to spend as much time with him and his family being constantly aloof. Nevertheless, Uncles’ upcoming ventures and jovial projects were always anticipated. Between his engineering background, comical personality and a very successful venture into the film industry- there was no stopping him. A short conversation with him, or anyone close to him proved how dedicated he was to laughter;  and spreading it. His YouTube videos demonstrating how to put on a pair of pj’s leave anyone with the sort of giggles which keep coming back- forever retaining the action as one worthy of smiles. That was who Jaspal Bhatti is, to everyone. A man of simple ways, smiles and to no one’s surprise- the world’s worth of respect.

The reason I chose to say this bit about him is to introduce the “seriously funny man” to those of you who didn’t know him. Moreover, because this is very little in comparison to the true honour he deserves.

A few weeks ago we lost this amazing man to a devastating car crash on the eve of his latest launch, “Power Cut,” a movie about the power corruption in the state of Punjab.

This changed everything. Not to say his family’s strength had withered. They premiered the movie in keeping with Bhatti Uncles’ spirit. And it’s been a huge sensation. No surprises there.

It did not change the success of every ounce of effort he had put into the movie and launching his son, Jasraj- a mirror of his father- in the movie.

It changed the perception of life, living and laughter. For days I found myself in a daze and a puddle of emotions. I did not know who to be angry at, who to believe in, and who to pray to. I did not want to believe any of it, and like anyone else, wanted him back.

It completely drown me. I could not bear to fathom what his family was going through. This was a loss immeasurable, and shook everyone.

Loss teaches us a lot of ourselves and puts the unthinkable aspects of our strengths at test.

In fitness- although equally applicable to other aspects of life- exists the concept of strength deficit. The defining line between the true strength we possess and that which we are convinced we have. The former is a representation of the caliber often underestimated leading to a “lower” realization of the latter causing, well, a strength deficit. The existence of the degree of strength deficit is seen in remarkable instances where a mother fights burning flames or lifts a car off to save her children. Where there is no time to wallow in what you may or may not be capable of, or talk yourself out of it. The only option in existence is to get it done, and without hesitation, it is.

In cases where we are left feeling helpless, the realization of how great our strength deficit is what drives us. People overcome any ounce of weakness to conquer what they have to at the time, only to tell astounding tales of it later, worthy of inspiration to us. It boosts our own realization of this deficit and provokes us to do more.

The loss of Bhatti Uncle is a testament to his family’s strength deficit. Every bit of effort that went into his final project culminates the base of what’s come to empower his wife and two children to pursue to take his work so much farther. The option is only to be strong, and that is all the world is bearing witness to- and it shall continue to be that way. They have no strength deficit.

We all have a strength deficit. Driven moreso by our psyche than anything else. In accounting for the inevitability, in no way pleasant, and unwanted- it exists. Bhatti Uncle’s family has been reason enough for me to acknowledge, realize and accept it is only as great as I allow it to be.

To every occurrence, there is a reason to empower and overcome- which admittedly incorporates acceptance of the truth. The path not-so-much ventured instills the lack of will, representing defeat.

To Jaspal Bhatti, and his family; thank you. Every time I feel a speck of weakness crawl onto my skin, I shake it off acknowledging I am only as strong as I admit to be. Just as you are and shall continue to be. In our own ways, it is important for us to embrace life, our efforts and celebrate our strengths in ways we know best.
