Follow Your Heart --It Will Lead You To Your Dreams !!

           "Life is the only place where you can live your dreams and you don't have endless time to do that -  Follow your heart they will lead you to your dreams  "
                                                       Recently i happened to have a casual conversation with a known frd whose brother had completed 12 th and had passed out with 80 percent marks ,i just quote down our conversation 
          Me-- So how did your brother fare in his exams ?i hope all went well
         Frd -- Ya buddy by God's Grace he passed out in flying colours ,he secured 80 %
          Me -- Great ,What Next ?What does he want to do ?
         Frd  -- We already planned for him to study Mech Engg in (he mentioned a reputed college name ) ,so we will put him there.
          Me  -- So that is what he wants also right ?
          Frd   -- Me,Papa and mom all decided he should study this couple of years back ,,i think he wants this too ,,its a good college , he will get good job and get settled in life .After all we need a good name in society and setttled life na (Saying that he broke into a huge laugh tapping on my shoulder ).
           Me -- All i could give him was a uneasy smile with a troubled thought in mind dating back couple of decades back 
        Year 1998 sometime( when life was wonderful with that unforgettable Sharjah Storm from Tendulkar --and not least about twelfth results :P)--i remember having a conversation with few frds when entrance marks were out (the NEET then ).

        Randomly i quote the dialogues that i could remember that was spoken around me  then 

" Marks are out now i can be a engineer as my whole family wanted "
"I have got enough marks to apply for doctor as ppl around me wished"
"I dont have enough marks to get into college my father wanted me too "
"I will go to the college couple of you go to " and then i was asked what was i goin to do 
"Mech Engineer as my parents wished "

                                         Almost two decades later when i asked this guy what his brother wanted to do ---he's answering that "We already planned for him for a seemingly settled life and good name of the society "--Amazing nothing has changed the place i live around because of this rotten ,dead useless "SOCIETY"--I did not think then nor did i hear from one person then was what he really wanted to become .It has always been about society determining our future and ruining our childhood dreams .
                                        My parents never forced to me to chose engg --i was a abject failure in mechanical engineering though i passed out for name sake - Almost twenty years later i know i never wanted to do engineering because i was never good at studies,i loved something else in my life but i felt not being a loya; son to wonderful parents would leave me guilty for life when one word to my parents would have allowed me to go in search for my dreams . After all life doesn't gives you many opportunities in life .I remember one of my besties  quoting long time

    " In Life there will be a moment when you have to make a jump in faith towards your untold
      childhood dreams --Faith because even if you fail you will keep trying to reach that destination 
      someday ,somehow--Thats the purpose of life ! "
                                     I hope sincerely someday someone i meet few years down the line will say boldly the lines "he will become what he wants to"-- after all there is no joy in hearing and enjoying  something you so dearly want in life .

"Your Identity should always be what you want to be ---not what people around you wish you to be 
People who love you from heart will always allow you to follow yours" !!!

Cheers !!




  1. Oh! I am so in awe of the quote mentioned by you at the end. Faith in our dreams, so true, we should have that and should do everything to make it come true. It was kinda motivating! Thanks!

    The society pressure is really killing many yearning dreams and people are blindly running in the rat race. It's high time to stop for a while and do something worthwhile.

    Thanks again for such a wonderful post!
