And i woke up....praying that God dis is d last time i am wanting something .Clasping m hand together to pray for what was i thought was my ultimate goal in life.
This was d day when my 10th board exam result were due.i thought d biggest thing in the world was to get 90% and u know show off among ur friends n all dat.Not 90% But i almost was satisfied with my performance in the result.The world was so much more beautiful n full of the mighty to live .And i thght this day wudnt cum again .....blah blah....BUT GUESS WAT???
This day came again –It was my 12Th board exams results!!!!
N dan again entrances n....Job...companies ,selection ,engineering result and wat not.Always burdened ..working towards what i thght was my ultimate goal....each time wanting more from God from people from parents and friends.Just following the latest trends!! Not realising that this want to want more is not what i always wanted in my life.
It became more important to show what you know ...rather dan gather what u dont.(Oh...god n it rhymes too so i better write in my poetic form [;)] ).
I was like a child making a mistake to eat candies though advised by his dentist not to do so..
n ending up each time asking god to forgive him for this last go.
I always mummed “god ,dis last time lemme have it...never will i ask for more”
And afterwards(the next result) the same little jolly line repeated with a sore...
The Goal was to get marks n marks n “marks without knowledge”
But guess dats d upcming n the oldest trend in the college.
N i was stupified when i got in this DREAM COMPANY...i have never seen myself this happy....n the past months have been really so..Until later two things happened.
Thing or incident no.1:
I was waiting for this presentation of mine... d final year presentation we had to make for our project.It was d day b4...i was just thinking ways to keep th e presentation high profile...with starting lines to be more technical dan d whole project was.The points i cud show off....so we can be better dan the others.U knw like we All do(Sure u do too!!!! ).n dan sumbody said-“isnt it always about show off...do u knw wat u really want to present ...or actually who u are trying to impress...or wat will happen after this impression show...what will u gain”
It left me with a void as to what we drive at ,throughout are whole study of wat we consider Graduation of Basic Academices.Are we well enough graduated in what we ought to.
Or else its just a part of race ...a lame race we all think we ought to compete in...just coz the others are.Do we actually know what we are studing finds its application where.Do we still the importance of W5H(what where when why WOW how) principle or are these just bookish words to gain what we call”topper marks”.
Thing or incident no.2:
I read dis book called “The Goal”...By an author whoose name is too long too write.
But anyways the whole point is –What is the Goal?For our existance,for our individuality,for our dreams, for just our being there?These are some basic questions ..let alone why i am pursuing engineering or why i want a job in this field.
This may sound a bit awkward but To get a good job or a good hike in salary or marks are they all?
Or dere are things that are often overlooked by us in the search of wordly wonders.I absolutely agree to the idea dat these are important but dere are dreams which need to be understood in the rite form.In short Knowledge is necessary for any application.
Do all the readers have the answer to these questions.For those who have...stop reading the article dis minute.U have what u want.Else try to find ur goal in life...like the writer just found it after writing the article.
