How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry.

I think it’s very difficult for anyone to explain himself. It takes years to understand oneself and to be honest, it’s an onerous process. When I was a kid, I had thoughts of becoming an astronaut. It was a very fascinating word for me and my Dad. My Dad and I used to talk long hours about it. Even the knowledge of terms such as Big Bang Theory, Andromeda Galaxy, Black Holes, Worm Holes and the like gave an immense feeling and made me feel like an astronaut. As I grew up, I came to know of the intricacies of becoming an astronaut and for some time, I was bamboozled and thought it was not something that could be easily achieved. After some time, I became familiar with some more terms: Engineering, Doctor, Non-medical, Medical et cetera. I didn’t give a serious thought to any of them and continued studying like most of us do. During the later adolescence period, I heard some more terms: IIT, IIM, JEE-Mains, JEE-Advanced, Kota et cetera. Just like the preceding time, I didn’t give any serious thought to any of them. My Dad, on hearing his peers, made me opt for Non-Medical(Though I was interested in knowing about how businesses work, what licenses are required for establishing a business and related questions). I was also interested in pursuing medical science as I wanted to become a surgeon but owing to my trepidation of blood, I didn’t have second thoughts about it. Subjects like Physics and Chemistry seemed promising(Over the course of my schooling, I never liked social sciences. History was very boring as one had to cram dates and names of rulers who passed away a long while ago). As I opted for Physical Education in 10+2, I had no interest in knowing about computers and coding. My Dad again, on hearing his peers, made me pursue B.Tech. in Computer Sciences and Engineering, which was against my interests. Just because it was a trending field back then my Dad thought it was the right thing to do. I knew I got myself into troubled waters and there’s nothing I could do in my power to reverse this decision. I somehow pulled myself together and completed my degree.


After being forced to make all the wrong decisions in my life, I have finally decided to do something that interests me i.e. writing. Though I am preparing for competitive exams and I hope I will clear one soon. 


P.S. If I get to live longer and everything goes according to plans, I will start a business of my own one day. I just need blessings at the moment, nothing more nothing less. 


Attributes that define me:
Ambivert, Musicophile, Cosmophile, Thalassophile, Pragmatic, Gourmand, nemophilist, hodophile, logophile, Numismatist, Anthophile, Bibliophile(Not every book), Astrophile, Aviatophile, Epistemophile, Kainolophile, Ornithophile, Pogonophile et cetera
