Why I started this Blog?
In 2016, I embarked on a personal journey to figure out my life, and I quickly made a grand realization that it’s a never-ending process. I am still trying to figure things out, but my vision, I feel, has gotten a lot clearer than when I started out. Before 2016 I was following what you would call a “standard model of life” (Get a degree, get a life idea). Things quickly changed after the depressive period during my 4th semester in Engineering College. I was forced into a corner to find a purpose beyond all the “rules and norms” and what I found was utter chaos. The framework of my entire life got Annihilated. So, I started to experiment with every personal growth hack I could find. This included things like reading a lot of books, meditating, learning to draw, e.t.c. I started to do every possible thing that came to mind, and it helped me learn a valuable skill; the skill to learn other skills. This idea single-handedly showed me a way to survive and thrive around all the chaos in my life.
After breaking the societal shackles, I have experienced pain, hurt and misery, but I have also been able to experience true happiness. I have learned a lot in the past few years. The most important thing being the ability to adapt to any situation, and I am grateful for all that pain which has taught me so many things; truth about my own life, which otherwise I would not have been able to experience. But as I said earlier, I am still figuring things out, and this blog is like a journal that I want to keep and share.
To Learn & Share as Much as I can
Up until 2016, I used to think that I hated studying or reading in General. I was failing as an Engineer and as a Human Being. I wanted it all to be over and to get out those dull Lecture halls and never again pick a book in my Life. But things changed, and I realized that the thing that I actually hated was the mundane structure of the college system. Sitting in 7 hours of boring classroom sessions and learning nothing of value (Personally) was too much for me to handle. So I started to bunk many of my classes after the 4th semester and started studying (this time for real). I realize now that I am only capable of learning subjects I am interested in. If I fall in love with a subject, I can study it for months or years, but I can’t seem to force myself to study for exams (I have no idea why). The only problem is that there is no place in this education system for people like me. So I decided to create one, and this website is the result.
I am a self-learner, I like to understand and use the things I have learned in new and exciting ways. In the last few years, I have learned a multitude of skills, and although I am not even close to good at any of them, those small experiments have made my life more fulfilling. I would like to continue in the same fashion and share my journey with the help of this blog. My only expectation is to somehow inspire others to do the same. My grand vision is simple; I want to create an educational platform for people like me, until then, I want to learn and share as much as I can, until the day I die.
