Almost ten years ago, there were two friends preparing for IIT-JEE in Varanasi. They both have a rich dad and successful relatives. After the hard work of one year, both cracked the exam and secured the consecutive ranks. After the discussion with friend, family, and relatives they both join IIT-Bombay in Computer Science stream.
After four years, when the campus placements began, one got a job at Apple Inc and another in Microsoft Corporation. They are successful and are living the happiest years of their life and had a bright future ahead.
But the guy in Apple was not happy, even earns more than his friend. One day he quit the job and returned to India.
A few years later the guy in Microsoft was in India for his company works and he had till now everything in his life. He was traveling with his wife in a big luxury car, then suddenly his car punctured.
He soon finds the best garage near the area and parks his car in the shed of it. Then he saw a mechanic who was no other but his best friend, he shooked.
He cannot believe at his own eyes, but soon find the name of the garage is same as his friend name. He went to him, they both went in the cabin full of rag and grease.
What are you doing here? asked the guy from Microsoft.
The second friend was not in the mood to reply his friend’s question, but he did.
Dear friend, as you know after the campus placement I got placed in the worlds biggest IT company with the package more than ten times of my expenses. My family were happy those days, but ….I was not.
Choosing Computer Science during the admission of IIT was the biggest mistake of my life. Since childhood, I love to play with tools. I used to repair my bicycle by own without any experience in it. I used fixed my handpump and other works of my house by myself. I should be a graduate in Mechanical Engineering not in Computer Science.
Although I did not earn as much I used to earn in U.S. but every day used to wake up with great enthusiasm and work till late night without getting tired in this garage. All I want to be happy in my life. It does not matter what my friends, family or my relatives think about me but inner voice always pats on my back for this biggest decision of my life. He had the tear of happiness while narrating his story.
As soon as he finished his story, the worker came into the cabin and informed him that the car has been repaired and both came out of it.
The friend was struck by the answer of his friend. He did not sleep the whole night.
