20 July : World bid adieu to the ‘Real Martial Artist’

There is no such thing as maturity. There is instead an ever-evolving process of maturing. Because when there is a maturity, there is a conclusion and a cessation. That’s the end. That’s when the coffin is closed.
– Bruce Lee 

Martial Artist, Actor and Filmmaker

Remembering Bruce Lee with one of his thoughts, on his death anniversary. He died at the age of 32 today in 1973, but gave the world a new genre of films – Martial arts.
‘Fists of Fury’ and ‘Enter the Dragon’ are some of his creations, which stands him out of this world.

The first time he appeared on screen, he was just 3 months old.

As a child artist Bruce Lee gained name and fame but his aim was martial arts. He learnt it and then gave it new heights. Lee was also a dancer, winning Hong Kong’s cha-cha competition, and known for his poetry as well.

He died of a brain edema, found in an autopsy to have been caused by a strange reaction to a prescription painkiller he was reportedly taking for a back injury.

1973 में आज Bruce Lee का सिर्फ 32 साल की उम्र में निधन हो गया था. अपनी physical fitness और martial arts के लिए याद किए जाने वाले Bruce Lee ने पारंपरिक Hong Kong martial art films को Hollywood में एक नई पहचान दिलाई. Fist of Fury और Enter the Dragon आज भी लोगों की पसंदीदा फिल्मों में से एक है.
