My college Journey...
My Journey in college began some 12 years back when my long-cherished dream of entering the medical world became a reality. I remember the day when I entered the college with my father for the first time for admission and saw all white-coat people around, my delight had no bounds as I stepped in.
Since then, it has been a journey of ups and downs. You enter into the professional field to learn the subject but you leave having learned about life itself. I had always been very studious from my early childhood and I continued that trait into college, without realising that this life demanded more than just academic rigour.
It demanded courage, strength, the ability to face failures and the capacity to bounce back after getting failed.
