My first blog... 'Choices'

Well, my first goes...Let me start with these words of wisdom...

"Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

We are the masters of our own fates. People who have the courage to make a choice and the intelligence to make the right one earn the right to shape their destiny"

Choices are things that we are inundated with in our lives all the time. With no options we crib, with two or more we find oursevles in a fix again. The human mind is eternally insatiable. That is where the conviction of making the choice we belive right comes in.

Our schooldays are the supposedly hunky dory times when everything is compulsary and we slog it out on social science and math alike. Then we have to start taking our paths, science or humanities or commerce, engineering or medicine or architecture or music or writing...., IT or Non IT, MBA or MS or M.Tech, India or abroad, career or marriage......It goes on and on and on.

Robert Frosts lines ring so true...
"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could."

At this juncture of my life, I m standing at the precincts of SIBM to do my MBA after doing my Chemical Engineering at LIT and working in a core engineering company Thermax for the past two years. I wonder where the other roads might have led me.

Well I have made my choice.

Only time will tell
If all will be well

What really matters is the conviction
The guts, the desire, the will and the passion

There should be no looking back, no regret
For its only pain that you ll get.

If you give in your best, then
Believe in yourself
Believe in the best
Believe in Him to carry you through
And Believe me this is true!!

I ll sign off now,
