Plan……………

“Ae Sala, Abhi Abhi Hua Yakin Ki Aag Hai Mujhme Kahin..Subah Hui Main Jal Gaya..Suraj Ko Main Nigal Gaya..Roobaroo Roshini…”…FM was playing this song on the antique Radio owned by Kakka Ji…We usually go to the Kakka Ji’s tea stall to grab a cup of tea and discuss anything which bothers us….So, Me, Utkarsha, Anushka, Anumeha and Kushagra were sitting on the bench enjoying the tea and of course the fantastic song also….We all had one common dream…To be a successful entrepreneur…To leave a landmark on the path less taken…But, how were we going to achieve it…Everyone of us had a different opinion on this…I had always dreamt to be in a top class B-School after completing the graduation in engineering….but…after spending 2 years 7 months and 13 days in the software industry I’ve started thinking in a different way…Well, I thought that a MBA degree will give a lot of money and an edge over the people who are only graduates…and if I could get into an I-Bank…aah…can’t confine my feelings in the realm of 26 letters….but, is it really what I want…shall I leave a landmark on the world if I get a MBA degree with a specialization in Finance…May be…or…May not be….both the possibilities are equally probable…I told all my friends about this feeling …
Kushagra: So, what are your plans..?”
Me: I shall work for the next couple of years…will think about something new which is feasible and can be done with few people…
Anumeha asked,” Like…”…
Me: Like I can start a service company…and start preparing a prototype of something which interests the product company and on which the product companies would mind to spend time and resources…
Anushka: But, that will require some initial capital…
Me: Yes…that is why we have to work for the next 6-7 or probably 10 years….
Utkasrha: It’s all waste…There is nothing in India…The salary doesn't make much difference here…we are not going to achieve anything if we keep working here…either get a MBA degree or go to US…earn a lot of money...come back to India…and settle down…”Yahan Koi Kuch Nahi Ukahd Sakta”
Me: Did you every tried to do something…”Kuch Ukhadne Ki Koshish Ki Tune Yahan…”…We should not blame our country for the opportunities…I agree that the opportunities are less if you compare India with US but still some people have managed to find an opportunity right here in India…e.g. ”Mumbai Tiffin Waala”….
Kushagra: But, wouldn’t you mind to do that kind of work…?
Me: Yes…I am just giving you an example….We can think of something which is related to field we work in…
Kushagra: If you see Mr. Narayanmurthy…he has not done any innovation…he did not come out with a new product idea…but he identified an opportunity and worked on it…we have to do the same thing…
Me: And he does not have any MBA degree or a MS degree from a US university…
Anushka: But if you take an example of Indra Nooyi…She’s a graduate from IIT, Kgp and a PG from IIMC…and four I’s made her a positive reality……..
Utkarsha: The Google Asia Head….He’s a graduate from IT BHU, MS and MBA from US…
Me: Yes, I agree…Qualifications help…make things simple...But we can achieve everything without these degrees also…all we have to do is to put more efforts….I may also try to go for higher education but now it is not essential for me…
Anushka: hmmmm…..
Me: Let’s think on this…After a few years some of us may be an MBA from a IIM or a premier US University or a PG in some engineering stream or only a Graduate … But…lets make a commitment…after 10 years we shall start our own company….and we all shall keep thinking on this….and we shall keep in touch…”Hum Honge Kamyaab…..”

All of us said: AMEN….

“Dhuana Chata Khula Gagan Mera…Nayi Dagar Naya Safar Mera….”
