Do you have an actor in you?

Acting is something which in due course that ive realised that id never be do with much success.
Just one among the long list of things which i once assumed i must have a talent in but life , like a spoilt child was incissent that i 'd get that right in my head. This is true with the case of singing and dancing as well.
Well I was part of the eminent college of Engineering's talented skit team that was sent for the kerala University arts festival. Well you need not ask what happend at the event, or you think the vain fool that i am wouldnt have proclaimed that somehwere in the initial paragraphs itself?
But life is funny. Because acting is not really acting. Mohanlal used to say that acting is just reacting. Acting is what you do with life. And that is not always reacting. So i would like to think that the best actors on stage need not be the best actors in life.
Life has a funny way of leading you in your thoughts in one direction and then surprise you all of a sudden by revealing another face of it which really catches you by surprise, infact thats what makes life worth all that tehre is to it. I though i could never act, and yet here i am acting in roles never imagined and in stages where i thought id be silently transparent.
