Life can be a bit awry when it comes to making a living. Especially if you are a civil engineer then things can be exponentially more torrid.
A completion of project naturally means moving to the next project. Infratsructure deficit in today’s second world countries is making the construction industry lucrative, with projects spanning across the length, breadth, height and depth of the topography; we are essentially in no man’s land.
Some time it makes us sick with very unpleasant and hostile environments. Seems like every other person is a foe and a ruthless man-eater. Thinking of life in a more encouraging and ambivalent atmosphere such as home, we get loose to forget the illusions.
So how do we exactly get loose?
So the journey began a few months before with a vision to build the nation. I know it is a bit exxagerating, build the nation? self centered maniacs! trying to fill up the barren closets with a adverse phenomena called money.
A train to a metro city and a flight from there to another tier 2 city, a bus ride to the destination and countless quarells with the cab driver. Man transportation needs a serious upgradtion. In all a tiring 1350 miles to reach what can be considered as the start of building the nation!
After a formal accustomization with the groups portfolio of projects, the journey continued for another 1472 miles combining a host of buses, trains and flights. If you think the base is here, stop dreaming.Within 45 days I had travelled 2822 miles with another 320 miles to make it for the next phase of pathetic unrealistic program. I almost forgot to mention the daily travel of 25 miles of one side journey to reach the place of work! Mathematically;25x2x45=2250 miles of back breaking travel to a place you hardly want to be in the first place!!
After slogging so high and dry, a satisfaction of having done what you really deserve is a compelling mile away!
Then how do you overcome such a situation?
Well lots of answers in life are a mystery. Is it job satisfaction, luxury, comfort, growth, leisure or anything?
The harder you try to crack the solution, harder it gets to phrase the answer. So my opinion will and I always stand by it, he is the creator as well as the destroyer. Just keep doing the things you are really passionate about, the things which bring a assured smile when alone.
Do what you like to and be what you want to
A complex life can only be broken down into smaller fragments of complexity. Have belief in God and more importantly in youself, a way is just around the corner.
For me, I am learning the art of time management. For if you really want to do something then a lifetime can be too short to accomplish it!
