“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius

We come across many rags to riches stories every day but we often forget that it takes great caliber and sheer love for the job to achieve that. Sheer love for the job, you hear that? Yes, because not everybody wants to be a doctor, an engineer or take up any other profession just because it is considered ‘noble’ by the society. Let’s face it, from that one Sharma ji ka beta your parents tell you to be like to that aunt of yours who assures you of a beautiful bride only if you get a nice and comfortable government job, the preconceived notions about unconventional and uncommon jobs in our country are anything but relevant. The point is, how many of us actually dare to go after our dreams and traverse the road less taken? Let’s take a look at some responses which were given to people when they talked about their unconventional career choices with their family and relatives.

Because it doesn’t matter ki Sharmaji ka beta kya karta hai, the thing that matters is what makes you feel special and confident!
