“If you really have the courage, go to your parents and tell them that you don’t want to do Civil Engineering in IIT, and then leave this place and do what you are interested in doing…”
Wish I had!
This guy had repeated the same thing what one of my great friend keeps on telling. All of them are correct. I don’t have the courage to do so. More so, because I do not know for sure, how I want to spend the rest of my life. The only thing, I have realized is that I am not passionate about my courses.
“… but if you don’t, then at least do what you can, at least the minimum, to get out of this system gracefully and in the shortest time possible. Otherwise you wont be in a position to do anything.”
Makes so much of sense, doesn’t it? This guy was telling the truth of life; the truth that I was running away from. And then he suddenly made me stop and think over it again.
“You might have reasons for flunking this course, and they might be valid reasons. But think of this: who is the one who got to pay for it finally? It’s not the faculty who could not make you interested in the course, it’s not the system who never cared about you, it’s just you. “So true! It’s fuckin me who is repeating a course, coz some sucking Profs did nothing to make me interested! Just so true. And what the hell! How did I let them do this to me. He had opened my eyes. He had made me realize it was time I take charge of myself.
Walk out of the system gracefully!I wont ever forget that! Thank you sir!
