I have read almost all of Indian mythology and the Hindu rishis and sadhus have fantasized and imagined about almost everything including the Pushpak Viman “Aeroplane“, telepathy “mobile phones”, and lots of other stuff that was only discovered in this century and age. They couldn’t imagine or predict about modern cars or motorcycles but they have mentioned almost in every granth miraculous chariots and horses that can take you anywhere at a speeds exceeding thousands of miles per hour. One thing that none of the mythologies, no matter which, including Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Ancient Greek Mythology could fantasize about is the modern 21st century credit card or any sort of credit or debit card. Perhaps no homo sapien sapien other than Edward Bellamy ever thought of such a wonderful thing as a credit card until his very popular novel Looking Backward came out. Although his imaginary credit card was more like a debit card, it very much defined almost all the features of a 1940s credit card.
I am now reminded of my neighbor Reham’s story. After listening to a popular motivational speaker, Reham thought going to the college is a waste of time. She decided to never go to one. She started selling herbal life products with her aunt whom she considered her mentor. They did buy Facebook live viewers and used Facebook as their only medium to advertise. They both made good amount of money for a while and then things started to change.
Reham was about to get married and she was jobless. Reham’s husband also didn’t go to a college and he was in the business of selling and purchasing used cars. After the growing popularity of the internet, Reham’s husband too became jobless. They didn’t have any money, they didn’t have any future.
They now had a baby of 4 months as well. They didn’t know how to survive. The remaining story is so painful that I decide to end it here only.
You will hear several motivational speakers on the internet and elsewhere telling you to quit your college and there is no benefit of going to a college and things like that. DON’T listen to these people. Just don’t do it! This advice can ruin your life and that of your near and dear ones as well.
When you work hard on a job that has no future, you are ruining your life. Most of the jobs that you get into without doing your graduation have no future and in today’s time when there are robots being built to do almost every laboring job, there doesn’t seem to be a bright future of the people working at the odd-jobs.
