To oppose the natural flow of life takes lots of courage,
That comes after aching your all body from inside-out.
This is what Abhijay Singh did, he dare to dream, when an average person even couldn’t think.
Abhijay singh is a 26 year old Indian actor. He saw a dream, when life had broken him completely, when most of people start dying slowly and no one can save them.
Abhijay rescued himself, and turned the flow according to him. He crossed the narrow line and began to write his destiny with the ink of faith and determination.
Abhijay said “Only dead fish go with the flow” and I wasn’t dead at that, but yeah I was on the way.
There were, and there are most of as me, I want to be free and set them too…
I want people learn to see dream, a new dream each day.
Abhijay born in a poor family of farmers based in the village of Shahjahanpur of UP India.
Where survival is the only aim of all family abhijay was also contributing. There wasn’t much scope for education but somehow his siblings (4 brothers and 3 sisters) and he managed to study.
He has completed his study from the public school and for pursuing Bachelor in art taken admission in a college of Lucknow but had to leave studies in the middle due to money.
Then he continually worked till the four years as a labour, as a watchmen and also in restaurants.
He said, “I was dying slowly- slowly from inside but there was a kind of voice
Always trying to be loud, that you’re not made for the road of normality;
But there wasn’t any way, only dark throughout all sides.
Abhijay said, time was going worst and worst day by day, sometimes I was hungry throughout three, four days in a week.
Stomachache and vomiting also happened many times due to hunger.
Even I’ve eaten soaked wheat with salt. I’ve been cheated many times; people have also made fun of me and my condition.
That was the darkest period of my life rather, just remembering all of that drown me in lots of pain.
But there was a thing that I never gave up, and after facing these all, I thought there nothing more worst can be happen than this so from here I’ve to go only ahead and get good.
And I decided to pursue my dream and I joined a theatre group in lakhnow.
I worked there for four years and then I dare much more and decided to go Bombay.
But didn’t have courage to told parents in that situation, when all were trying hard only to live and I was going to become actor.
They obviously consider me an insane.
But after sometime I told my mother and in 2010, she gave me little money after selling her gold earring and blessed me.
I moved Bombay “with the only luggage of my dreams and so many hopes.”
I get failed many times in auditions and face many rejections so I returned for learning acting and I was going third time in that city, which had thrown me out before two times.
But this time I had a kind of confidence in me, after seeing this much failure, I thought I cannot go more down than this.
Rejections stopped affecting me; it became just another thing after I went through emotions of shock, anger, frustration every time, in that order.
Till that i was completely fearless and void.
Now I don’t afraid from anything.
From there my real journey begins…
Firstly I got an opportunity to perform in the play based on the fight of 1857 in the theatre situated at china road. I have gotten 500 rupee for a show that also after so many rehearsals and waiting of months.
After that people started to notice me and from then I worked in many TV serials as “Diya or baati”, “Bade acche lagte h”, “Jhansi ki rani”, “Savdhan India”, and in short films and in movies “Mahendra Singh Dhoni”, “DNA” and “Ghandhi.”
And now his first film (dastoor) as main lead with the actress sonal chauhan and actor govinda with the director ‘chitresh mehra’ is about to start in lakhnow. There are more three-four films those will be schedule in next year.
He is defiantly going to be a next super-star and a exceptional actor in Indian cinema.
After knowing his remarkable story and writing on him here I want to dedicate few lines of my favorite movie’s ‘Shawshank redemption’ to him and his infinite courage.

Their feathers are just too bright.”
