While growing up in India in an economically underprivileged family, I was restricted to follow the career which is more lucrative rather than having the freedom to choose a path of my own. It was a long and lonely struggle, emotionally and economically, to keep walking on the path I have chosen for myself. This story is deeply personal to me and also tries to reflect upon similar dilemma faced by several other youths in our country.
