So let’s take a look at 7 Sooryavansham Life Lessons That Can Change Your Life!

Hard work is the key to success!

When Heera is thrown out from the house, he along with his wife lived at the village outskirts. He starts making a living by working in a transport company, soon with some financial assistance and his diligence, he launches a bus service under the name of his father, which becomes a big success and transforms into a transport company. And within some time, Heera becomes an affluent businessman.

Viral - Expectations Vs. Reality

It’s not your degrees or diplomas, but your character which ultimately defines who you are.

Heera was always a dunce and used to get very poor marks in his school examinations, this is why his father would scold him. Heera’s elder brothers avoid verbal or physical communication with him because of Heera being illiterate. They even mock him, look down on him. No one believed in Heera, even his father Thakur Bhanupratap neglects him. But Heera is very benevolent and respectful towards everyone, his significance in the house is no greater than the servants. But when he becomes rich, he doesn’t change, he still remains the same obedient and virtuous son.

If she leaves you then she’s not worthy enough to have you.

Heera was in love with Gauri ever since they were kids, Gauri was the only reason why Heera attended school. When Gauri came to know that Bhanupratap is going to perform her marriage with Heera. She tries committing suicide, but Heera saves him. She then tells Heera that she would never marry him because of his illiteracy. Poor Heera tells Bhanupratap about their breakup and cancellation of their marriage and tells that the decision is of his own for the sake of Gauri.

Your children will become who you are so be who you want them to be.

When Thakur Bhantupratap coincidentally comes across Heera’s son, he is very much impressed by the child’s principles and behavior. He develops a friendship bond with him. The child is a reflection of Heera’s obedient and kind nature. Ultimately it’s the fondness of the little kid which urges Thakur Bhanupratap to give up all his hatred and realize the virtuousness of Heera.

Respect is earned, not given.

Kevada Thakur is an arch-enemy of Thakur Bhanupratap, he despises Bhanupratap because of the respect and love he commands from the people of Bharatpur. Despite being from the royal blood, the people doesn’t respect Kevada Thakur as they respect Bhanupratap. Kevada Thakur conspires to bring the downfall of the Sooryavansh family while Thakur Bhanupratap cares about the people of Bharatpur, looks after their needs.
