QUICKLET ON THE CHARLIE ROSE SHOW: SALMAN KHAN
- Ficha técnica
ABOUT THE BOOK Although I was a young child in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I was a huge fan of the sketch comedy television program Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. A recurring spoof on the program was the presentation of ?The Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award.? The award was bestowed upon the famous and infamous in recognition of various ?achievements? which the recipients would just as soon forget. In Salman Khan's case, he has been touched by the type of fate which is inspirational, remarkable, and may very well prove to benefit countless generations to come. In viewing Mr. Khan's May 5, 2011, interview on Charlie Rose, I was vividly reminded of the fact that as careful and meticulous as we may be in planning our future, the unforeseen and the unforeseeable can circumvent our plans in an instant, changing our lives forever. None among us could have predicted the circumstances and experiences we would encounter over the course of the past year, the past week, or even the past day. Clearly then, we are incapable of predicting future events. To me, that lack of predictability provides hope through difficult times and engenders gratitude during times of ease and prosperity. Another overall theme that struck me during the interview is that sometimes opportunity presents itself in disguise. We may start out on a simple path, not really expecting the path to lead very far, but then that path can inexplicably widen until it becomes a five-lane highway. Mr. Khan was simply trying to help a cousin with her homework when the ?flying fickle finger of fate? intervened and transformed him from a Harvard-trained hedge fund analyst into a global ?accidental educator.?
