“Oh you got such a wonderful job, who recommended you?”
This is often asked to those who get a lucrative job.
It is sometimes true that we need a great backbone support to come ahead in our life. Life becomes all sugary and things fall in place robotically. Recommended people need not face the smirks of people, the hierarchy leg pulling, the political affairs and a lot more which a person otherwise needs to counter.
Yes, the only thing that comes along with the recommendation is an image and a reputation to sustain if u do that, then voila! You are almost there where the world respects you, not for who you are but for the family that you belong to.
Life becomes a bed of roses, as the path that you are going to walk is already paved, all you have to do is walk, unlike those who have to first gather the apparatus and material to make a path of their own and then walk on it.
I too had the latter path. In spite of being from one of the prosperous family and having influential uncles and relatives, be it maternal or paternal, I had no one, to hold my hand and show me the ladder of hard work or success, not to forget they were very successful and hard-working themselves. They had made a niche of their individuality in their own industry.
I did not need any recommendation; however I surely wanted to get a hand of how the practical world is. I wanted to get sculpted, wanted to explore just with the help of someone who could show me the mirror of the actual world.
Be it destiny, but due to our downfall, I had no option than to throw myself in this fake world.
It came as a shock to me as I was like a girl who had spent her life in a shell. I was unknown and ignorant as to how shallow can people be and how much they can fall in terms of a human being.
I FELL, I GOT UP, I AGAIN STUMBLED, GOT HURT, WOUNDS HEALED AND AS THEY HEALED I LEARNT THINGS…
I started working as a co-teacher in an international school which hardly paid me 3500 and today I am having my own classes.
This journey would not be possible if I was supported by the ones whom I expected. Thanks to them that I could reach here with a handful of experience, good and bad.
However except them the entire credit of me existing and that too without having my trust hampered is my parents support and their blessings.
I owe my every thing to them JUST THEM!
