Lost Boy in a Known Crowd

Being an Indian teenager, belonging to a lower middle class family and living in a society of a whole new big and developing cities are the obvious symptoms for your mind to get lost in the big crowd of the unknowns. Wait!!! are you thinking of the crowds of the well known market place. Well if you are guessing that, then you might get afraid I am not talking about those fish markets or the lavish malls. Its about being a soldier of an unknown army who promises you to conquer a seat in a IIT [if you are incapable of even getting 90% in your boards] and in the minimum case, be able to win over a rank in the JEE(mains) [even if you are in capable of securing the required marks to get in the CFTIs]. Yes that’s absolutely true. I being an early teenager had a huge dream of being a driver in the F1. But as the symptoms are, its quiet truthful of getting discouraged by the family members. If not, then ending up getting seviourly injured psychologically by the usual sharp weapons commonly found in the families in which I grew[ arrows dipped in poisonous fluid of emotion and tragedy of being the poor and bows being the mouth of the parents]. If still the child has a good hold on his aim, then the wheel of his car is heavily steered onto the direction in which there are no signs of being a hero of his life. As the case goes I was too an ant of a coaching institute(B*@#*&$#@&^#S) trying very hard to come up to the expectations to meet the demands of the society of being a responsible Indian citizen. ( WHERE I COULDN’T FIND ANY HINT OF BEING A RACER ).I have encountered a boy with such a case. It was very difficult for the boy to cope up with the world he had never imagined of which eventually turned to be the most devastating years of his life.

As the time passed, he somehow survived, came up to the shores, wiped down his tears, healed his injuries and prepared to flow along the flood of the human race of expectations. As the demand goes he got a seat in an university with a SCHOLARSHIP (a real big deal for his family) and ready to take on the world. Still having his dreams and desires thrown crushed at a corner of his heart but with a new perspective to challenge the humans who did not show up their humane, with a new vision to prove the people wrong who said these very words “This boy would be a way more looser than his father is right now”, with a new madness, intensity and a heart full of obsession. He took an insane decision of taking out a degree in BE in the stream of CSE along with MBA. It was a complete disaster for him as he even did not liked sitting in one place and typing for hours. But now he was getting acquainted with the computers even though he didn’t want to. Ragging up the machines so hard that it becomes habituated and falls for it just like he did with the subject of science in his early school days. When someone asked him about his decisions he maintained a silence within because he got to know a well known fact that if your parents aren’t that supportive enough then you wouldn’t be able to chase your dreams in a field other than academics. That is the only field where usually maximum of us get encouraged for. But during the end of his most devastating years he had made a master plan to feed the hunger of his obsession. He researched a lot and thought of linking his career with a very beautiful word ‘ENTREPRENEUR’. Neverthless he struggled a lot. Struggling to survive with the rich brats of the college with money almost equal to a big zero, struggling to keep his eyes out of distractions and entertainment which almost every engineer does. And as the saying goes ‘The fruit of the patience is always the sweetest’. He got placed in a very reputed company with a huge package which no one expected him to gain. His parents, not able to control their emotions thinking about their son getting placed and ready to settle abroad. As usual no one did even care to ask about his decisions about his placement. Everyone asking for treats in the joy [out of formality and jealousy] of him of going abroad where they never had dreamt of.

Without even thinking of the results and after math of the denial of his appointment letter, took this step. He left everyone in a tremendous shock, but no one knew about the startup business he had to which he started before a year of completion of his degree. Again as usual about his parents not able to control their emotions, but now threading three words together SON.FUTURE.UNEMPLOYED. Everyone thought him to come back to his parent’s place after his graduation but as expected to be an unexpected decision maker, shifted to the capital ‘New Delhi’ where he already had his ongoing startup to which now he had gone to fuel it a bit more and make its wheels roam around every corner of the nation. Parents got to know about their son a few months later and other family members after accidentally seeing him in an interview of news channel. At present he owns lavish homes in Delhi, Mumbai, Bhubaneswar and a huge flat in Chennai, Including some beautiful hotels in the apple city of the world. But the most important thing, he has his cars which came into life from the posters of his room wall to which he drags every single weekend in the BIC, New Delhi and all set to own a F1 racing team in the Grand Prix. The mouths which sang the songs of ‘UNEMPLOYMENT & THEIR SONS BEING SUCCESSFUL’ shut up forever. He only gets to see those background artists (teeth) all bright and beautiful. But still his hunger is not satisfied and most probably, it won’t.
