As promised, here we are.
Shall we do introductions, or straight dive in the conflict? Why are we even bothering, we all know what I am going to do.
There is a hindi proverb (I’m Indian after all, though people have their doubts).
“Waqt se pehle aur kismat se zyada kisi ko kuch nahi milta.”
The closest English translation would be, “No one gets anything more, or before time, than what is written in their fate.”
Hey don’t look at me, my hindi is horrible. Like I said, people have their doubts.
I won’t agree with the fate part, but I do agree with the part about time. Unless you do your due diligence, you’ll never achieve the results you wish to achieve.
I’m a biochemist so I can only talk from that point of view. Unless I did my masters, unless I performed necessary experiments, unless I developed the skills required for an immunologist, I wouldn’t have been able to do justification to my PhD.
You see how I didn’t use the term I couldn’t have been able to get into PhD? Sadly, these days almost anyone can get into a PhD program in India. Believe me, I’m not joking. And before I end up sounding like a bitter jealous scholar, let’s drop the matter there.
See, I’m a nerd, that’s who I am, so I’ll always talk about science. But the truth of time will hold true. Always, and everywhere.
Can you get into a six figure paying job unless you do your due diligence? Unless you suffer for years? Actually suffer is too strong a word. Let’s say, unless you sweat for years developing your skills.
That’d be more in layman terms.
There are phases for everything. Life teaches us all different lessons. There aren’t any good or bad lessons, just different lessons.
Everything teaches us something. Everything has its season.
