Wish i were an idiot

Because i have been awestruck by 3 idiots.
What a wonderful movie. And i guess i liked it even more because of the central theme of the movie, which is follow ur heart and do wht u really want to.

the 3 idiots do that and they are successful....but much more importantly, they are happy

i guess i have also been part of a rat race since the very beginning.....it wasnt pressure exerted by family as such....guess it was a lot to do with my own expectations (probably that drew from my parents' expectations to a large extent...but papa and ma always gave me the liberty to choose what i want)....
so me...the 4th idiot is at a loss, coz i dont know what i want to do
i find so many things interesting...but like in the Indigo Manza ad, there is always something missing.....wonder wat

i guess that is why i admire laina (my fiance') so much....she took the plunge, quit a great job in a coveted company, and now is doing what she wants to do.....

now there are multiple alternatives to finding out what i want...one is jump into each thing i like...make my mistakes and move on to the next one.....
but the status quo of a good job makes me too prone to inertia....add to it the fact that i am not sure if i will like what i do even for a week......
other one is to wait and watch......which is wat i am doing right now
third one...which i guess i should start...is to continue with wat i am doing...while taking in bits and pieces of the other alternatives......
this is also one of the more difficult ones coz maintaining attention is a big problem....i have tried it multiple times with multiple things but it hasnt worked till now

but till i decide to start the third alternative...its still the 2nd alternative for me :)

Speaking from my experience...the 3rd alternative is great till you find something which would push you out of inertia.
I think if you can't maintain the interest in those umpteen things you tried...it means those were not for you. The world's is a huge place, you would surely find what you want :)
And thanks for the mention ;)

Its all the precedent you have set for yourself man - IIM itself is too much of a burden to shake off (and become somebody 'they' don't expect you to)

Well, thats so right! its important for each one of us to pose this question to ourselves - "What is the purpose of our life"!

I believe, that its very easy to live for your own self - getting yourself luxuries, bank balance, car, house and the umpteen no. of things world has to offer.
But life is made purposeful, ONLY when you come from the space - "How can I make myself useful for others?"

Think about it :)
Love,
Sugandh

PS - I too am awestruck by your fiance ;)
