What to study? Where to study?
This is one question that churns every teenager’s heart and brain;
The question that doesn’t have a choice but needs to be answered rightly;
The question that directs the rest of the life!
In India, if one likes carpentry, he or she simply cannot become a carpenter. Seventeen – when one is yet to explore opportunities ahead and passions within, marks the decision-making age. ‘Keep your exploration aside; fix on your destination first’ is what life demands at this age. And one doesn’t have a choice. Financial burdens, social conditioning and the fear of future force us to take the first bus. By the time and age, you are confident about becoming a carpenter, you have already spent a decade in where your first bus took you to and it seems meaningless to drive down your path, for the sake of what you like.
Yes, it’s ironical! But most of the times, the first bus gives you the sense of direction. It helps you from getting lost in the search of what you are unsure of searching for. And perhaps, if you begin your quest early; earlier than when your life begins to demand you, your first bus might turn to be the one destined for you. So, if you (or your children) are nearing seventeen, get geared up to ransack the myriads of opportunities around you.
