Better late than never!

Ok, am back... after a really long time. Sorry to neglect you... so much work to do lately.

I viewed a few blogs yesterday, and it was amazing to know how some of my former classmates are doing so well in their respective fields. I just happened to type some names in google.. and presto! I gathered all the info I wanted regarding the person. Internet makes the world so much easier to cover.. and the irony part of it all was that the excellent students of my class have gone on to become majors in maths and physics.. while me - the average student - takes on engineering...

I think I took the whole idea of doing engineering just to satisfy my parents. I mean, in 12th I did not have any idea of what to do... so, hey! if I can take maths and study.. so why not engg ?? I wanted to do something more related to me, like psychology or something.. I have always been fascinated by the idea of understanding a person's natural behaviour, why he does so ? What all aspects lead him to the way he is... has always interested me right from childhood. But when I suggested that to my parents.. well , they had an expression which showed they were clearly disappointed.

No one from my family has got an engineering degree.. well, no one from my mom's side of the family. It was really her wish for me to do some higher level of education superior to the normal degrees. And she was incredibly hurt when my sister did not complete her education let alone satisfy my mom's dream for her to become a doctor. So I guess it was upto me to fulfil her wishes..... Anyway, no regrets whatsoever.... I am happy with my life at the moment. I have met great people, I have become a better person. And like someone said 'All that happens, happens for the best' !
