Humans of Campus

 

 

I was born and raised in Bikaner, a small town in Rajasthan, famous for its world renowned ‘Bhujiya’. Being from a normal middle class family , I was quite an introvert with no social participation and goals. I was a mediocre in academics as well.

 

I discovered my first real interest in class 11th– Basketball. And it rewarded me with immense confidence and developed my personality that turned me into a social being.

The conclusion of my school life proved to be a turning point when I had to decide about my future. After a lot of contemplation and chaos in the family, I was finally allowed to pursue my undergraduate degree in the Delhi University and hence, I moved to Delhi.

But moving away from home into a metropolitian like Delhi, brings with itself , immense responsibility and freedom,of course!!!

I manifested the same into a strong vision and sense of confidence .

 

 

Mending and adapting myself into the modern life of contemporary Delhi was of course a story in itself but I conquered the quest.

College life came with many unexpected and planned adventures viz. my first hill station trip to Kasol and many more.

With the eternal and unconditional support of my peers , I could finally adjust myself into the life of this megacity.

But still, I had some walls around me, which couldn’t be broken down.

 

 

While giving auditions for some college societies, I realized that there is still a long way to go with my learning and at the same time , I developed a keen interest in music . this introduced me to the world of singing. By learning to play and sing over a second hand guitar from youtube, I felt a boost in myself a couple of months of this self learning. I soon realized that Delhi is a perfect place for living my musical dreams and hence I found it to be my true happiness. I am currently working to polish my musical skills.

 

 

I lived every moment , I got to fulfill all my dreams and aspirations here. With every opportunity and experience , I have understood that failure . If accepted honestly, proves to be a great teacher and fear is just a state of the mind.

That dialogue from the movie Yeh jawani hai deewani by Ranbir – “Mein udna chata hu, daudna chahta hu, girna bhi chahta hu, bas rukna nahi chahta” has always been my mantra for self motivation. This might found a bit filmy to someone but now this is me. I just want to work hard, I want to explore myself, this world and everything just being regardless about the fear of hurdles, struggles and failure.
