Road .....



The final results came out and again he had proved himself , he was the black sheep in his family where every child excelled in the so called intellectual subjects but he scored descent marks only in literature .

“This boy is going to bring disgrace to us one day , I am saying you” scowled his father in an high pitched voice  

In every other person’s opinion the road ahead seemed bleak for him 

Few decades later , the same so called black sheep was interviewed by the media houses for being the recipient of the highest award for literature in the country and he was questioned “What exactly led him here ?”

In a calm gentle voice he replied “May be it’s because I took the road less traveled by”

  8. Everybody should go in for whatever they are good at and passionate about. Unfortunately, there is generally too much pressure to stick to the usual "roads": medicine, engineering, etc.

  10. Brilliant, Sushree. That's the tragedy with many academics obsessed but ultimately creative thinking matters.
