The remarkable aspect of Natarajan's progress was his ability to create opportunities, utilise them, envisage the next step, and realise his goals. “Our experiences should help youngsters. No point in saying that our children don't heed advice. We have to share our highs and lows with them, in a manner that they accept them as words of genuine concern and not as sermons,” says Natarajan. The way young talents are put down by some of the judges in our reality shows irks him no end. “Don't hurt young minds just because you are in a position to,” he says.
Failures made me resilient. Whatever the obstacle, I remained unfazed.
