The title of this article may seem a bit melodramatic but so is the aura of our protagonist. It has been a decade when we have been hearing talks about sustainability, dependability over the unlimited, under harnesses, not so limited, renewable energy sources. But, not until recent developments there have not been so much of sales pitch in this regard. The sole reason being — We were all waiting for a real world Ironman outside the world of Marvel to rock our world.
Falcon we were proud of you in the Marvel comics and now we are more proud of you Earth v2.0. Mr. Musk you deserve every bit of respect from every individual on this planet with the slightest of desire to be an entrepreneur. When I first heard of the term the only adjectives that I could relate to it were risk and adventure, but, probably some textbooks forgot to add disruption and positive constructivism to it. Sir, the world might not appreciate SpaceX and Tesla today but in the years to come you have already raised the bar modern world Einsteins. If Google was a revolution, facebook was a renaissance and Tesla’s renewable car has started the melody of the sweet symphony.
When we talk of real world entrepreneurs the quote – the sky is the limit seems shaken for individuals like you have already started the concepts of star wars so real. All the whoosh and whisshh have started to happen and it’s exciting to see whishy, whooshy space launches. You have inspired me, so countless others who are now looking at you as our leader, a master of witchcraft but, hope it doesn’t stop here.
There is still plenty of space left in this world to be explored and let’s not forget to sustain creation with all the new, exciting, melodramatic and charismatic disruption. Thanks for your help in this regard!
