The birth of Entrepreneur in me happened before two decades, when I was in college. The CS Engineering was giving me hard time. CS was at boom back then & I was good in mathematics, some Solemn in the family suggested engineering in my thing because Maths is my forte. Nobody warned me about English! Most of you will agree it is nearly impossible to absorb any concept in an alien language, it was like I was in foreign land!
I was told success was elusive without English. The seeds for Ambience & in fact Virtual Voyage were sown there! I pledged, I will help as many as possible. For people who are unfamiliar with my journey, Ambience was Spoken English & PD classes, where my biggest weakness became source of livelihood & Virtual Voyage is a platform for Dreaming! No one have to waste talent due to the inconsistencies of the system. While nourishing this dream, millions dreams merged with as one; few small-few huge, some inspirational-some awe-inspiring! And my little dream become a universe of dreams- beautifully tangled in each other.
The common chaos of our dreams is what laid the foundation for future challenges.
There were struggles indeed, the spirit of those dream never lets me sleep peacefully. Let me narrate you an incident. Once I saw a Student in campus at 10 PM, I was about to leave & she was working on piece for the college lobby. (She wanted to gift it to us as token on her graduation). I looked at the painting it a surreal, very hypnotic. The profound talent people have always amaze me , I complimented her. And apprehensively asked if her family members will be mad at her for staying back in college for so long!
She smiled, one of those mysterious artistic smiles & said “Well! Why would someone be angry with me , for being myself?”
A question as an answer. This question had layers, stored multiple answers to it. The answers I have been trying to convey all my life to this society , parents & students.
Your talent, your art is who you are! That is how God meant it to be! With every piece of art you share yourself with world, a little piece of your soul rests on it, that is how you communicate with the universe!
How can someone find you Crazy for being yourself! Then how can your passion, your work, your choices, your decisions can be absurd, unusual or different? Just because they don’t fit the current status quo…. Actually it is the most natural thing in the world. Because that’s how mother nature designed you.
Then I suppose no one has the right to let the stereotypes, traditional courses , language barriers kill or steal your dreams? Never settle for mediocrity , for none of us are average; we all have been coded differently by God, each framed to perform wonders for this world. Trust me, no two human being on the globe share same DNA, we are meant for great things!
Don’t let anything shatter ‘who you are’. Fight for your dream, fly with your dream, not just for yourself but for infinite dreams that died or are still burdened.
Don’t let these ancient systems define you, instead achieve the height you were destined to achieve!
