It is never easy to understand oneself. And maybe it is for the best to live in such dilemmas. My life has been no less that roller coasters ride. I did my schooling from Montfort Senior Secondary School Roorkee, a reputed Convent of the town. As a small town boy I was subject to a limited area of exposure but I ensured to make the most of it. It so happened that I developed a flare for Performing arts including Debating, Poetry, Singing, Dancing and Acting, apart from being good in academics.
As a CBSE science stream student, I too thought of pursuing Engineering as my career option. The only problem was that I didn’t think at all. As a matter of fact I didn’t see many options in front of me. I knew after a point of time that Engineering won’t be my cup of tea, not because it is bad but because I don’t see myself as an engineer.
And then, came the final test when I chose to opt for DU instead of IIT and thus all engineering colleges, even though I was eligible for some really worthy colleges. My family and other close people insisted me to go for the engineering thing. But I decided something else which implied, going against all of them.
I rather wanted to explore myself and be active in co-curricular. So I opted for the best option, University of Delhi. I worked really hard for my boards, scored 96% and got the best, Hindu College. My preparation involved a sincere approach towards studies and regular attendance in school which gradually gave shape to a day-to-day schedule.
I opted for Statistics as my major. Statistics as a subject is immense and has applications everywhere. One can opt for Actuarial science. Govt jobs in stats are available. Since it is a budding subject it has wide applications which are unknown to people. Every industry needs a statistician. Placements are sure-shot for statisticians.
I have not once repented on my decision. As of now I am doing what all I had dreamt of doing in my college life. I am a part of the most prestigious theatre societies of the Delhi University Theatre Circuit, Ibtida. I am practicing my oratory skills as a recognized speaker of my college. I am learning management for being the Admin in-charge of my society.
I have been getting opportunities to express myself in my creative and artistic forms by means of various organizations and start ups. I got to host, conduct and head events and thus got in touch with some respected and reputed people of the Industry and Corporate world as well.
All in all, I am loving, what I am living!
