I have always seen him being everything else, rather than what he is right now.
There are interesting dinner conversations about this and we do have a good laugh, we do also feel little sad about the lad.
Unfortunately, he has to carry on a legacy of the first family. Which only germinates into more occasions where he makes the subjects laugh, but at the cost of his own sorry reputation.
I wonder, how would it be if he were given the choice of choosing anything of what he wanted to be. He could have been a hotelier or businessman or actor perhaps…
Now that would have a been a first one..from someone whose sole occupation is to champion and fight for other’s rights to right under the lime lights ..From Real to Reel..From a superstar to another superstar.
Perhaps he can be the perfect ambassador for those parents who force upon their children to take up their career choices, instead letting them to chose the career they want to have.
Or perhaps he might have just led an obscure life, away from the limelight, just like a common man. Or perhaps, and this would be interesting..he might have been a stand up comic, that would be role reversal, the world laughing with him rather than at him.
He could have been a pilot or a writer, or a stylish, suave breeder of horses. He is the uncrowned prince after all, he might as well married a princess and settled down somewhere.
He could have been happy.
And no, this is no sympathy vote for him. These are just my thoughts floating into never ending germinating thoughts land and ricocheting to and fro.
I quote Kahlil Gibran
“Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.”
Enough said and much thought process to be churned.
PS- it was really tough for me to ignore the word politics or politician. Thanks for reading.
