Ignited Minds

Vikram stared at the guitar in his hand, and the cover on the table. The "The Dear & Departed" music had ignited his mind and emotions. The final year IIT-ian no longer wanted to continue studies. It all seemed so superficial. He wanted to follow in their footsteps, wanted to make music no man had ever made. He had always dreamt of shaking hands with Slash, his hero.

All of a sudden, he spied his 'joining letter' along with the salary structure. And he thought to himself ... " what a
rotten waste of time .. thinking about guitars and music", and put himself to finishing off his final year project.

In the end money rules over the passion to do something one loves.

Ironic. Passions don't pay and the one that pays does not get our passion. Nice job.
