Let me paint you a picture… a real picture in fact
Financial status:Rs 20/day pocket money.
Mental status: I am rich.
So when i was dreaming and praying that ” saala SSC khatam ho aur college start ho”; and the reason was so that i can get rid of school uniform and wear good cloths. And every guys rebel ; to keep ‘fancy hairstyle’. Guys from convent school will understand the struggle.
And after enjoying the most awaited vacation (at least at that time) and after the results were out; questions started bombarding from every possible corner and voice, “Kya lega ? science!? commerce he lega na..? ya arts!”
While my Parents were gathering donation money , oh sorry i forgot to mention i belong to a Gujarati community; I was busy trying all the funks like Dragon print pants, Goa print shirts, EdHardy tshirts, Converse snickers, listening to teen sensation Justin Biebers first song ‘Baby’. Things started getting serious; at least for my parents and more than them for my relatives.
Me and my best buddy were suppose to take the same field . That “tu mera bhai hai” waala phase… when you update your best friend as brother on Facebook and everywhere possible. Orkut was flooded with photos together. Updating your every move on social media after coming home as I dint had a smart phone. Feeling on top of the world when you hangout with yours friends at McDonald. That phase cant be named or defined.
Life was sorted , hanging out with girls and besties. And best part was we dint knew what field to choose but we and a proper description of what kinda girl we wanted to date.
So from no where one uncle comes and says ” issey engineering karao ….bahut scope hai” which convinced my parents. And i am sure this line has ruined many happy souls…
Next i know is i am filling forms for Diploma in Computer Engineering….
What happened next i’ll post on my next blog…
