Hello guys!!! =D
I am Vinayak, the newest author here.
I would start this mini-autobiography by expressing my gratitude to the coordination of all those zillion coincidences which ended up as me writing for this blog. :)
I have written a few articles for this awesome blog till now but this one took me the most time and brains. It is always challenging to write or say about oneself, it's like being honest without being truthful.
I belong to a very small town in Odisha situated alongside its border with Jharkhand; and like all towns situated at the border, it's pretty backward. I currently live in Mumbai, I first visited this city when I was seven years old to visit my grandfather who was admitted in JJ Hospital, at that time I never would have thought that it would be the same hospital I would become a doctor in many years later. From that moment, it was my dream to live in this city one day, and now everyday I wake up I am happy because I am living my dream! :)
"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge, that dreams are more powerful than facts, that hope always tiumphs over experience, that laughter is the only cure for grief and that love is stronger than death." This is my favorite quote. I also believe that "mistakes" should not be frowned upon and berated, that your evolution as a person, as a student, as a family member, as a professional is the result of a "trillion mistakes". One should be so confident about his failures that he is able to fail at the time and place of his own choosing.
As you can gather from the above article, I aspire to be a philosophical writer one day. :D
That'll be all for now! I hope one day I can come back to this article and add another paragraph about living the dream I have right now. :) Thanks IkaN for giving me this oppurtunity!
