I dont remember exactly when i logged in last time here at pagalguy
and to my surprise, the interface has changed lots. I really had a hard
time figuring out how to post in the relevant sections and I hope I am
posting it in the right section. I had been banned before at PG for
posting stuffs so I hope I am posting it in the right section. First of all,
Why return to PG after so much time and post this today. Well, I was
telling a junior of mine today if he has heard of pagalguy.com. He
was asking online resources for CAT prep so to be honest, I could
not think of anything else other than PG. Although, I still don't have a
clue how to post a smiley here. Everything has changed here.
(Coming from a PG veteran- Gaawd, I miss the smileys)
My tryst with CAT started in my third year of Btech. Arun
Sharma used to come in our hostel mess and in our common halls
and used to tell us, we ought to want CAT as bad as we would had
wanted a breath if we are dying of cancer. Well, lots of us were
motivated and given the discounts he was offering , we were
inclined to join his coaching classes. (Arun Sharma, the CAT related
books writer) Cl also chipped in with scholarship offers and I
managed to bag second position at their Lucknow centre. Cool, 8k
off on fees, good enough for our liquor parties to last for a week at
least. Well, I was a ranker in the CL scholarship test so naturally,
thought no need to study much. In my mind, I was already in most of
the IIMs and I didn't even considered JBIMS or any other college with
names like SPJIMR or you know, SIBM, lots of colleges that I wanted
to target after I failed twice in CAT (missing the PG smiley here, the
one with the logo) So, took CAT first time, failed, got 77.73 percentile
but since I think rationally to justify my failures, I thought that so
what, have a job and who cares. CAT next time. Everything went
smooth, smooth like I had always imagined, job to fulfil our daily
needs of ciggs and liquor and parties and what not, and on top of
that, I was blindly in love so failure in CAT did not even fazed me a bit.
And then, at the threshold of what is called the real life, bang. Gf
left, after I had the left the job to prepare for CAT with her, yeah, life
does plans out that way. So now, what , CAT, that can redeem me of
my sins, and if I make it, I can look myself in the mirror at least. Was
very dejected, and yeah, I used to cry too back then. let me take you
back down the memory lane. I was shattered, dejected, and used to
cry on the overbridges near Polytechnic, Waves, if anyone is from
lucknow, will know the places I am talking about.
Was bouncing back from Cl kapoorthala centre to Cl Hazratganj
centre and it was pretty scary at times, manoeuvring in the traffic. So
FMS got included in the list now and was quite determined to make
it this time. bang, results, no success, haha, and then, decided to
move to Bangalore.
Bangalore, I love this city. This city has been very kind to me (if you
take out the occasional chats with cops that ends with me and my
friends in their custody). Used to go to job interviews, well, I even
went for call centre interviews and had made up a story to tell back
home telling why I have joined a call centre after leaving a job
before. Well, got job in HP. and again, the dream started to take it's
course. AIMCATS, SIMCATS, these words were like, let me tell you,
the best things that I knew that time. Like a newborn baby says first
time, a word and everyone thinks its so awesome, I was in the same
phase. AIMCAT 19, marks, ohh, you topped, I got this, damn, will
bounce back next time after some time at Purple haze Kormangla,
tried my best to bounce back the next day. didnt had many friends
back then, so PG was all that I had, in terms of friends too.
People learn lessons from their mistakes, but I had a knack for
thinking that what I do is the best, so again, left job, went full fledged
with CAT, FMS and yeah, MAH CET has now got a place in my list of
exams and (missing the smiley). so, results were not as I expected,
crashed in CAT, missed FMS by borderline ( around 38 marks If I
remember- and yes, 38 marks is what I call borderline) and MAH CET,
98.73 percentile.(phew, finally, I can also boast of a percentile) so, in
nutshell - no job (again), no admits and everything was lost. I even
thought of consulting a psychiatrist back then. I still remember the
day FMS results were out, I called up one of my friends, and cried,
no, wailed. He said, its okay, maybe it was the first time in ages that
you studied hard, its ok to fail try harder next time. But I had not
motivation left, I was at the lowest of my life. So low that I used to
think, what I will do now. All my friends are at so good places, what
will I tell my parents, what will happen to my life and all the dreams
that I have had , they just shattered. Fast forward next year, luckily,
there was an exam called SSC, got through and opted for Bangalore
for posting ( I love Bangalore). Well, in college I used to think that
two to three years after college, I will be riding the bike of my choice,
will be partying more, well, personally, I love purple haze marathalli
for that ( they let us smoke too) unlike other joints. And there I was,
boarding a sarkari bus, and by the time I reached office, all my
nightmares had turned into reality and was facing the reality staring
in my face in the form of ladies ( above 50) as my co workers
(missing the smileys) , among other things that made me think what I
had done with my life, and how I had ruined it with my own hands.
back at home, everyone was at least thinking that I had now settled
for something, not the thing that I had wished for my life, but yes,
had a sarkari job, and was trying to portray myself as happy as I could.
Wait, then, the miracle happened, I had a hobby, in college days,
of uttering the word open source. Open source, yeah, I had the
hobby of uttering the word every now and then. So after my job , I
used to come and see the packages offered by various IIMs and then
do my open source thing. started dreaming again, of having a
company, a small one of course, I still fear of dreaming big, since I
failed so many times. Dreaming got intense, started taking leave
from job more often and one day, lady luck bestowed her showers
upon me. Got my first contract and finished it in a week. The long
lost of dreams of having the package of 20+ Lpa and all started
taking it's course again. yeah I still laugh at it, it happened last year,
2013 started, and I was on the road of getting the dream. Well, my
purpose of cracking the CAT was to have a big fat pay package, that
enables me to do what i want to do. This time, I was not going to give
it up. I worked for 16-18 hours a day, applied for leave at office and
yeah, I resigned too from office. No, how can you do it again,7th pay
commission is around the corner, how could you do that, was the
response from everyone I knew. Once you start failing, people
believe that you will always fail and even the slightest thing that you
get, they will advise you to hold on to it. No, but I wanted to do it. I
resigned, and worked lots. I worked round the clock, seems I
mentioned it, before 16-18 hours a day (missing the smiley)
results : I have two employees now, both are based out of India(and
both are,umm,what's the smiley for saying they are so cute), and the
ITR that I filed last fiscal was more than the yearly salary that I used to
get at HP. I have a small sort of company right now, and I have
clients all over the US and Australia ( I dont want to work for UK
clients since they ruled us and all, personal vendetta you see ) My
senior officers at my office call me up to ask that If I have some sort
of opening for their sons( missing the smiley) Feels like a dream. But
to get here, I had to go through lots. I still remember the day when I
crossed that magical figure, that I had set up as a benchmark for my
financial success, I didnt knew what to do. I went to the Central Mall,
BODYSHOP, and purchased the eye mask there, to pamper myself
since my eyes hurt lots after crying. I am very fortunate that I got
what I wanted. And yes, maybe, I had not wanted CAT that much,
because , I see here, people who had wanted it so bad , had got it.
The_hate, the doc mod (shashank -FMS inspiration for me that time
and probably these people will be my inspirations in time to come
), burning_desire one of the most beloved friends I had at that time at
PG. Not only I am doing what I wanted to do (utter open source, among other things) I am doing it from where I want to do. Currently I
am in Bangalore, since I love this city. Life could not had been better
for me than this. Even though the manager of Purple Haze kormangla
has warned me that if he sees me again in the premises, he will have
me kicked out, I still go sometimes, thinking that he won't recognise
me. After all, once you start yelling "This Place shicks", the managers
tend to do that it seems.
The dream is still there, its still there. I could not make it to the
colleges that I dreamed of, but I did something worthwhile. I can now
see myself and tell myself that I am not just some guy who gave up
because he was tired to continue. there are many tear shedding
stories, instances where I had sat numb, staring in the dark, and
thinking that life is over. I hope I have not diluted the sacredness of
this thread in any manner. Life does rewards us, we just have to
dream that reward and work towards it. I could not clear CAT in three
years and I saw the success that I had dreamed of in just one year.
That makes me think that I was not committed that much to CAT
prep and just wanted to crack CAT to prove my self worthiness to
others and me. Now, i just try to prove to myself and maybe that is
what matters ultimately. we have to dream the dream for ourselves,
not for any other person, not for your gf, not for your parents , it has
to be you.
Seems boring now, this gyaan, so will end now.
