Recently this has come up a lot in my conversations, presentations at P@SHA and even in my comments.
This post is to answer some of the question thrown at me regularly. this equally applies to other blogs who are doing a fantastic job of guiding industry professionals/graduates and students
Who are we? People think that we are employed by an organization Green & White and its our duty to guide them. believe me this is not the case. we are employees of other organizations or owners in some cases and work on this from our personal time, some of us have to sacrifice our sleeps others steal some of the family time, just to be able to write a meaning full article, which we think might change if not many atleast a few peoples attitude. This is the reason we are not available full time as this is not our primary job.
Why do we do it? We don’t need it, most of the writers here and on other blogs who have been writing to guide and stir your souls are well set in their career. Most of them are either earning or making good money. Then are they half mad to waste time? in a way yes we are half crazy, we want to return some thing back what this country has given us, we are trying to guide the younger generations so after same amount of time they are standing at a higher/better place. they should not learn the hard way we have learned they should learn from our mistakes and take this industry and nation one step ahead.
What do we want to get out of all this? We want you to succeed, we want you to go places we have never been we want you to touch the highs we could not because there was no one to guide us when we started. We want you to learn from our mistakes and don’t just read it appreciate and repeat the same mistake.
We are saying “Hey avoid that road, it leads to a dead end… I have traveled there and had to come back and it wasted precious years of my career ” but my question to every one who is reading these blogs is:
ARE YOU LISTENING?
