Job vs Life

Why are we being educated?

Nursery, LKG, UKG, I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII
What Next ? ...IIT, an year dropped:(, Jamia is although good. I, II, III, IV year. B.Tech Comp(uter)lete. What Next?...MS/MBA/Job?I opted for Job :-)

Being from a middle class family, some how our society gives you an aim to get a "JOB" and work generously to rise and earn decent salaries.

And when I am very near to start with my first job, there is something within myself which is questioning is this the end (as shown by our society) or is this the beginning? Beginning as of...starting of my career, going to company everyday, work and again work. Is this what for I have been educated for so long and awaited to feel the eternal bliss of a Job, what only matters is to earn money, do i also get trapped as millions of people and loose my identity, will it provide me happiness to the rest of my life, will I be able to fulfill my dreams/ambitions within some years from now before marriage specifically.

I felt really disappointing that neither our society nor our education system taught anything in this regard. Always I tried soving Matrix/Differential/Integration problems, mugging history, solving assignments, impress my teachers, having high grade. Unfortunately, it had lead me nowhere and I completely don't know why did I actually studied all the crap which I have already forgotten long time back and to blame myself, I never took the pain to explore beyond the psychological comfort of a job which somehow flourished in my mindset too and I completely felt a class-I guy who enters new classroom (World), and feels completely strange with no mentor this time and as understanding grows, this is stage where again I have to prove myself where millions of people are already competing to grow by hook or by crook. Remember famous dialogue from RDB: "gate k is taraf hum duniya ko nachate hai and gate k us taraf duniya hamein aur duniya ki is bheed me na jaane laakhon DJ piss gaye",indeed very true. We are out of the gate, no step backing, now.

Don't read if you think I'm about to give to an answer or an alternate to situation. What I mean is to understand yourself, organize your thought. Think again and again why have you really been educated? Its only your thought process that can enlighten your path to vision beyond the boundaries.

If I talk about myself, I am closely analyzing all trends of lifestyle, fashion, Gen X, Tech World, Entrepreneurs, Government, India's "Cool" philosophy (will talk more about it later), Mobile, Internet etc., and will launch myself in the direction I'll feel myself more aligned to unleash the mystery of life and to achieve 100 percent of my thought. This might be the reason why Americans/Japanese are leading as they walk in that platform they are actually meant for besides merely following others blindly and unknowingly getting trapped.

Remember, job in any way is a medium (not the end) to reach to your dream/ambitions and this is what you exactly need to explore and then one need to keep the SPARK alive to achieve them. Happy Beginning :-)
