This is just a start….
This post is about my dear friend – Dipraj (Yes, the very Dipraj who owns this portal).
I once asked him, may be in our second lap of college, “You seem to be quite intelligent.. what are you doing here in LNCT? You deserve to be in IIT!!”
He replied,“Had I made it to IIT, how would I ever meet you?”
It is always very nice to hear such lines from a guy in your appreciation but for him, it was his way of hiding his pain of not getting into IIT.
Third lap of college, Recruitment Fair; he got into TCS, the very first company that came for recruitment. He was happy or pretended to be so. But ask me and I’ll tell you, he was not made for TCS.
He also took CAT, got a 90+ percentile but again, ask me and I’ll tell you, he is IIM material. He, for a change, himself confessed, “I didn’t get into IIT, but nothing less than IIM this time..!”
He has always been a person who dreams big and also works hard to achieve it but, there still was no end to his misfortune.
Faculty members of his department then played foul to deny him the ‘Best Student’ and ‘Best Project’ awards funded by Tata Consultancy Services at that time. Needless to say, his performance card in both the categories was unbeatable.
The College Course Ends Here.
Now, ‘On The Job Time’:
Tata Consultancy Services, Noida: He gave a mind-boggling performance during his training days, only to miss out on the ‘Best Associate’ award.
But still, he never let us gauge how heartbroken he was.
But just a few months later came the chance for him to show his flair and he grabbed it to blow the minds of ’em all.
A game of luck for three days and everything changed.
He moved to Hyderabad..
Let me correct myself.. He moved to Microsoft, Hyderabad.
That ‘ultimate’ destination for a software engineer and he has made it within seven months of his professional life.
He doesn’t need razzle-dazzle. His personality is enough to knock you off.
But this is surely not the end…
Picture.. Abhi Baaki Hai Mere Dost..!!
P.S.: I never told you Dipraj but you have always been my role model and I will keep following in your footsteps.
God Bless You..!!
