There are only a few people in this world who get a chance to pursue their childhood passions when they grow up. Children dream about becoming artists because these professions are driven by strong imagination and creativity. As these children grow up, their passions are overpowered by practicality, logic, and societal pressure. Their passions are suppressed, and they become part of a race or a competition that was not meant for them. These aspiring artists with big dreams end up being corporate professionals, engineers, doctors, and managers.
Yes, these professions are highly esteemed, but they do not benefit a person who was not meant for it. Growing up writing poems, Mohammad Yasar Nasir, became a notable songwriter. He was one of those who did not let any external factors divert him from his passion. He was meant to be a part of the music industry, and today he has established a prominent identity in the world of music.
He was fond of music and song writing since he was just a child. His interest in the field developed when he started writing poems, and his skills were commended and acknowledged by his teachers.
