I as any other child was in a sea of uncertainties, surrounded by dark clouds of hopelessness, when I passed by class 12 exam and had no decided path as a career. But as fait accompli, I decided to pursue a career in law and zero downed to CLAT.
So, my journey began, the year ahead, I could have never thought was going to be so dynamic and teach me, some of the biggest lessons of my life. The flight took off and I migrated from my hometown in GONDA to my maternal uncle’s place in Bengaluru. As I reached there I was greeted with an entirely different culture and way of life., and so like that I began my clat preparation, under the able guidance of my very sweet mentors and the constant emotional and moral support of my very dear uncles.
The biggest shock came to me with the mock tests and along-with came the reality of my lagging in reading and comprehension skills in English. The only way out to tackle them was to read more and more and also face the things which feared me the most which even included classroom conversations and cultural clashes, but to everyone out there I must say, I was lucky enough and was easily absorbed by the very polite and humble people of the place.
The things slowly started to get in place (although my dream to score highest in mocks was never fulfilled, lol), and then the exam pattern was changed, washing away a major part of our preparation, but only option available was to adapt.
And then came the WUHAN VIRUS (ya I call it so), life turned upside down and method of teaching changed, entirely putting a lot of stress on students and the rainbow of confidence was replaced by dark nights of despair. The extra time we got was a great boon to me and helped me tremendously, as kept fortifying my areas. There came a lot of breaking points too like the sudden NLAT exam, but if I would have laid down my weapons I would have surely not won.
On the D-day I just poured whatever I had and thanked god for everything he blessed upon me, the results were out getting me a chance to get into the second best law university and I again boarded a flight.
A little piece of advice to my dear beginners-
1. Persistence is the key (probably the only one).
2. Have faith in god (he has put you here for a reason).
3. Exercise daily (big brain not big tummy helps).
4. Trust your teachers, mentors and parents (they truly love you).
5. IF YOU GIVE UP, YOU WILL SURELY LOOSE.
LET THE DARK BE DARK AND FULL OF SORROW,
LET THE CHANCES OF SUCCES BE VERY NARROW,
LET THE EVIL GUY PINCH ME WITH ALL ITS ARROW,
BUT I WILL RISE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW.
