To all who have made it, to all who have not and to all who hadn't applied for R1......my two cents......
You all are winners, because you belong to the select set of human beings who have been crazy enought to come out of your comfort zone. You all have been the discontent souls for who ISB has not only been a mere brick-mortar structure, but an amphitheater of dreams. Agreed, for all of you a cushy post-ISB job is an added incentive, but the lengths you went to achieve that, the pain you bore, the tears you shed, the castles you built have been phenomenal. Regardless of whether you have made it or not, of whether the people around you realize this, of whether the world will one day rememeber you by your deeds, you all will know that you were giants in your varying statures. Because you tried, and how!!!
I am very sure that all of you have sacrificed something or the other along the way - an onsite assignment, a love story, late-night binges, random bike-trips, shopping-sprees.......and for some you it feels like it all was worthless. But believe me when I say that one day you will connect the dots properly and the jigsaw will fit.
At the risk of sounding very cheesy and un-straight, I want to congratulate you all for the resilience you have shown. All of you belong to the sacred brotherhood of dreamers and aspirants and the maniacs. You should be proud of the way you travelled so far. And you should never quit dreaming.
As Javed Akhtar so soulfully put forth:
Aankhon mein hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho
To Zinda ho tum
Dilon mein betabiyaan leke chal rahe ho
To Zinda ho tum.......
Here's a toast to all of you surviving, and surviving strongly.
Have faith !!
