Well, I am not proficient blogger. This is my first endeavour to put my feelings to words. Some individuals locate the importance of life early; others don’t and carry on with their life in disarray. Before understanding why am I doing building I had finished designing, before understanding what would I like to do in life put in 3.5 years in corporate life (Tata Consultancy Services as System Engineer). In corporate life, I have generally seen miserable individuals grumbling about their employment yet the vast majority don’t have the guts to leave their secured work to give wings to their dreams. Having in hand an h1b visa (non-immigrant visa in the United Sates for speciality occupation) and two offers in best MNCs of my expertise set in India, it was for sure the hardest choice for me to pick between my heart and my cerebrum. I never needed to carry on with my life in perplexity and misgiving. Before leaving my occupation I had done minimal online examination that without having little thought regarding the non benefit segment, I won’t have the capacity to set up an organization.
I resigned from Tata Consultancy Services in mid Dec 2015 and came back to Guwahati, Assam. From that point forward up to mid May I had been included with various no-benefit works to comprehend the ground situation. I had additionally worked in Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights for one month as intern to understand the social segment society and distinctive issues. Amid this time I went by couple of inside spots in Assam and had seen the exposed ground situation. I likewise considered diverse study reports accessible to me to comprehend distinctive issues in Assam. As a piece of this task, I was fortunate to be a part of two days conclave on “Effect of Disasters on Protection of Child Rights” sorted out by “UNICEF” with relationship with “Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights” where diverse govt partner offices, presumed NGOs and numerous prominent identities were available. I was in the part of documenting the two days program, so I did an exhaustive perception of everything talked about. It was in fact a learning social occasion and inspiration boaster session for me. In the wake of meeting such a large number of social workers in the session and listening to their motivational stories I felt from inside that I am in the right way.
I have been in consistent touch with my buddy Nayan Jyoti Kalita (Asst. Prof CSE, Royal School of Engineering & Technology) regarding building our non-profit venture. Nayan acted as a catalyst to introduce me with few of the most amazing guys I ever meet— Bijit Dutta (bijitdutta.com), Pankaj Jyoti Mahanta (pankajjyoti.com), Dipankar Chetia (dipankarchetia.com) and few more who share the same passion. After unlimited gatherings and conceptualizing at the tea stall of Gauhati University, we at last chose to dispatch our non-benefit wander Xondhan Foundation. Also, today, 8th June 2016, finally we have enlisted our establishment under Society Registration Act 1860.
Some says “It is much agreeable to cry in a BMW than in a bi-cycle” and some says “It is far superior to ride to the top of a hill and cry shouting with all your torment than in BMW”.
“Neither have I needed to cry in a BMW nor in a bi-cycle at the slope top. End of the day, I need to go to lay down with a grin of fulfillment”.
I always had a craving for doing something good for a cause. As it is said “You in the long run wind up being there where you have a place”. I read somewhere “You need to help others reach their dreams if you want to reach yours”. In the event that you think we are attempting to spare the world, you are incorrect dear. We are simply attempting to spare ourselves during the time spent helping other people with our obliged learning.
My Greatest Fear
My greatest apprehension was social endorsement. What would people say if I leave my job despite having H1B in hand? Would people think that I have been kicked out? How would my relatives react to my decision? And many more…
In the long run I have comprehended the realities about existence. Not knowing precisely what you want to be when you grow up, regardless of the fact that numerous individuals would as of now place you in the classification of “adult”. If you are thinking about retreating to class, or evolving professions, or moving, or beginning a family, or doing charity work — it’s all great. What’s more, none of it must be caught up with a wordy clarification regarding why it’s a smart thought and they ought to have faith in you. We have been blessed with one life as it were. It is about doing things that makes you upbeat, things that vibe right from inside, things that give you a chance to rest settled.
“You needn’t bother with a social endorsement for your dreams. It’s your dreams that characterize who you are.”
Heart Breaks Are Good
A person who means the world to you leaves eventually of your life. You have to proceed onward without understanding what turned out badly. You have to manage being infatuated with somebody who has cleared out. These things in the long run make us more grounded than any time in recent memory. We figure out how to acknowledge things, we figure out how to control our feelings and for the most part we figure out how to be empathetic.
My grandmother’s passing taught me about existence more than whatever else. I have seen how delicate life is. The cliché is true: experience every day like it were your last. Life is not sufficiently long to justify staying in circumstances that don’t make you happy. In particular, I have felt “I am not my resume; I am much more than that”. Do the god damn thing you generally needed to do, tomorrows are not ensured, but rather today is.
Xondhan Foundation is our dream. What’s more, we feel pleased that we are experiencing this dream. We will be happy in the event that we could convey any positive effect to the general public even in little scale. We do require every one of your blessings and support to accomplish the same. Time will judge our efforts. Till then “Dream On” . . .
