I spent three years of my life preparing for engineering entrance examinations. I invested loads of my parent’s hard-earned money into costly coaching classes, books and test materials. I abandoned sports and games, stopped frittering time over movies or television and pared on my outings.
Then in 2013 and 2014, I gave one of the most competitive entrance examinations in India christened JEE. I did it all aspiring to be placed in Google or Microsoft with an eight figure package one day.
And, then life surprised me. Just two years after joining college my mindset had changed. I had lost my knack for engineering. I didn’t feel like I belonged here. Turns out, engineering was not what I thought it would be.
Presently, I am honing my skills as a writer and want to be an entrepreneur in the times to come. And, I am doing all of this while building my understandings in the domains of politics and economics.
Maybe this too is just a phase. Maybe this shall pass and some other interests may take their importance in my life in near or distant future. I don’t know, and neither do I want to. Its unpredictable in every bit and I guess that’s the beauty of life.
It is full of sudden and beautiful surprises. And, it’s keeps you on the move.
