I saw that everything is planned . Take the work experience of 2-3 years , Go for Higher Studies , Come back and work in a good company at a good position or do a start-up . Things were looking so much simple and elementary . I never felt the need of a contingency plan . But things got changed when i stepped into the Reality. When you join a company, you not only increase money in your pocket but you increase liabilities too. It is the life which comes with the cost of changing your full life style . Slowly slowly you get addicted to the perks and facilities provided to you by this new life. The ambition which looked so simple just after gradation suddenly became unachievable. I just got lost in the intricacies of this corporate world .
Jon brings new responsibilities .Your job increases expectation of your family . Your job brings new liabilities . Your frugal life style becomes a lavish one . Effectively you become a slave of your own job . You get addicted to it . I am not saying that i got succumbed to it , but the vigor and enthusiasm i used to have for study before this has got lost somewhere . Slowly i have become more specific . I don't want to read stuff which is not useful in my job . I just want to do everything limited .
Now when i think about higher studies the big question which haunts my mind is "What should i do ? ". I see Higher studies more as a value addition to my current situation in employee - employer relationship . I don't see it as commodity which will actually increase my knowledge of life . It has become a profit-gain game . I value it as a return-investment plan . If i do MS by GRE from US Institute i would be paying at-least x amount and will get a job of at-least y amount . Same scenario revolves for CAT , GATE and last but not the least , what if i stay at the job for some more time ? These questions are unanswerable .
