The mangoes looked sizzling bright and the look of mangoes alone gave a thought of sweet taste. The proclaimed wise minds strolling the market admired the mangoes but doubted the genuineness of those mangoes. They handpicked the strawberries instead. “Looks are deceptive” is one of the rare proverbs that has grown into a prejudice rather than a wise message till day.
In the midst of the chaos, a hand picked few mangoes with the limited money it had. It was the hand of Ishan. The penultimate year of graduation from college was intense for Ishan. The internship demanded too much work and the academics was not laging behind to demand more work too. Ishan was swayed between internship and academics just like a pendulum swinging to-and-fro, flying in directions to attain a balance finally.
Inspite of all his sincere efforts, Ishan could only get an above average rating from his internship provider.
The next levels of tests in his life were awaiting to face him, providing no time to grieve for the disappointments.
The job offerings through on-campus placements at his University began. Ishan looked at the schedule and the list of the organizations approaching his University to offer jobs to Students.
Ishan was glad that most of the organizations were data analytics based. He jumped in joy.
All his accomplishments till date and his internship were all in the field of data analytics. The game is set at Ishan’s home ground.
Thankful for the opportunity, Ishan stepped up his preparations for the D-day. He was very good in working with programming languages, data mining and data warehousing structures. However, life had different plans. The majority of the jobs offered were for the roles that were not his area of interest.
Ishan was the best in his university in the core area of his interest. These skills amazed the recruiters but, their requirements were different that day. They had come there for the recruitment of candidates with different set of skills.
No wonder that even if you are one among all the sweetest Mangoes, some still prefer Strawberries.
Teary eyed, Ishan left to his home.
Years later, Ishan set up his own firm that became the powerhouse centre for data security and privacy.
