You know that feeling when you at last buy that new exorbitant Louis Vuitton bag at that designer shop you have been window shopping at for the past three months but you don’t experience that priceless joy you have been bottling up for that precise moment? Bummer, most people would say. Maybe you would have been more contended with a less costly sleek watch. Maybe you are just not that into glitz and glamour. Or maybe it’s a wake up call to keep your priorities in check.
Ever since I was a little girl all I would hear was how great I would look in a white coat branded by the title Dr.Daisy Verghese. Everyone from my parents to my teachers and even to my distant relatives would say the same. Being the simple, naive girl I was, I paid heed to their advice without first consulting myself if being a doctor was who I wanted to be. Thus, much to my parents delight, it was decided that I should pursue my higher studies in Allen, Kota.
Precisely, one month before my departure to Kota (and after my dad paid the school fee) realization hit me that I was not following my heart. Call it God willing, call it destiny or call it a wake up call. It was like a rainbow after a rainy day. Unexpected yet relieving at the same time. Much to my parents and even my shock, I gave the idea a big thumbs down.
Being the perfectionist or Monica Geller Jr. I am (shoutout to all you Friends fans!) I was piqued that I hadn’t had my life planned out. But if there is anything I’ve learned within these 16 years it’s that life dances to its own tune. Follow your heart, dear readers, and you will know sooner or later where you are headed. I know it’s easier said than done, but with a pinch of dedication and a dose of hard work you will find out your answer.

But for now,
Goodbye lovely readers and happy blogging!
